Today is a special day because we are getting geared up for the Taste! Dessert Gala. I was incredibly honoured and excited to be asked to participate in this event for so many reasons. One, being an event that brings awareness to health & wellness and two, being a women's only competition.
Arthritis is a condition that tends to be exacerbated by pro-inflammatory foods such as sugars and refined carbohydrates. I'm happy to say that our entire menu is free from wheat flour and white sugar. We use either coconut or oat flour as a base and sweeten naturally with either stevia, maple syrup or honey. Every item on our menu is under 250 calories and less than 35 grams of carbohydrates per serving. As a bonus, we also offer different options to suit many different dietary preferences and tastes such as keto and vegan. An event such as this, which brings together awareness and support for a chronic condition and delicious desserts is definitely something we want to be a part of.
In addition, this year the competition is a women's only event which is super powerful. There's something amazing about a woman entrepreneur. It's much more common nowadays to find a woman in business. I'd imagine these women, like myself, are likely juggling a multitude of things such as being a wife, mom, friend, sister, daughter, ect. Because of this, we pour our our hearts and souls into the work that we do, and in this context, the food that we produce; sharing our products is more than that. It exemplifies who we are, how we feel, and mostly, the powerful work that we do as women in all aspects of our lives. We want you to love our work as much as we do - our work is about connections.
I can't wait to see how the night goes and connect with all these amazing ladies!
