After a pretty incredible week away at the Paleo fx conference, I'm full of new ideas and excitement :)  It was beyond inspiring to listen to so many incredible thinkers and leading edge ideas.  Nutrition is something I'm incredibly passionate about and have been following for years so it was incredible to be immersed in so many like minded people.

Weekly Updates - The Keto Cake & Paleo fx

The end of the week here and it's been an incredible week!  Spring is finally starting to feel like it's sprung, we launched a new product AND we're headed to Paleo fx.

As I mentioned, this week I'm travelling to the Paleo fx conference in Austin, TX for a weekend of learning and networking.  This conference is filled with today's leading edge thinkers in nutrition, fitness, health and wellness.  Rob Wolf, Mark Sisson, Joseph Mercola, Paul Chek just to name a few.  There are so many more talented speakers, it's going to be hard to decide where to go!  Follow along with us on Instagram and FaceBook as we journey through this amazing weekend.

Earlier this week, we also launched our newest member to the Buff family, The Keto Cake.  What a cake it is!  Super dense, moist and chocolatey.  Doesn't that just sound amazing?  Our first flavour is chocolate with cream cheese frosting and this one will not disappoint.  The slices are big and the macros are good.  10 grams of carbs per slice and a big 4 grams of fibre.  You could definitely even share a slice with a friend.....or not..... 

Our booth is still open this weekend at Thunder Country Market.  My sister in law Katie is working so stop by and say HI!  We've still got our full line up going on so this week you'll find:

Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins  (Gluten-free)

Raspberry Coconut Protein Muffins (Gluten-free)

Vegan Black Bean Brownies (Gluten-free)

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Balls

Keto Cups

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cheesecake

Protein Rice Crispy Treats 

We also have another location for my folks on the south side to find ready made treats at Fit Lab inside Iron Performance.  This week we have 5 for $5.00 Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips Protein Balls and Keto Cups and 2 for $4.00 Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins.  While supplies last :)

We're also still accepting online orders which will be fulfilled on Thursday, May 3rd at 5 PM.  These spots are filling up so if you need something, it's best to get your order in sooner rather than later.

Looking forward to a great weekend of learning and bringing it back to the people who deserve it the most, all of you!   

The Whey Way

One of the great things we pride ourselves on at Buff Bakery, is providing super healthy alternatives to delicious treats.  We love the idea of being able to have a great tasting treat without having it blow your entire diet.  One of the ways we do this is by boost up the protein content our products by adding whey protein to our baking.  It's important to understand what is in our foods so that we can make conscious decisions on what to eat.  

The whey we use in our products is gluten free, non-GMO and Canadian based.  Whey can often be a touchy product as it can have fillers, artificial flavouring or be from an un-pure source.  The whey we use is also NSF certified which means it complies with strict standards and procedures imposed by NSF. From extensive product testing and material analyses to unannounced plant inspections, every aspect of a product's development is thoroughly evaluated before it can earn NSF certification.

A few of the other ways we boost up our protein sources are from eggs, greek yogurt, nuts, seeds and beans!  We love taking yummy treats, making them over, and bringing the healthiest options back to you!  

This week we're bringing you a fun twist on a breakfast favourite, pancakes!

Girl Power & Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

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!

For all you blog readers, here's the Waffle Breakfast Sandwich recipe we posted earlier this week!  Just say NO to the McGriddle :)

This weekend it's St. Patrick's Day so of course, we had to come up with a green recipe of some sorts!  St. Patrick's Day is always a fun holiday because it's super festive, everyone makes a point of wearing green and having a great time.  Green beer makes it's appearance for the night and regardless of what day it falls on, everyone goes out and makes the most of it.

This year, St. Patrick's Day happens to fall on a Saturday which makes it great for those who like to go out and celebrate!  It also happens to be a Market day so we will be featuring Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Doughnuts to celebrate.  These guys will be available for purchase BUT if you have the mix you can definitely make them yourself!!  It's a super simple recipe and they taste amazing!  Enjoy :)

Peanut Butter Banana Protein Bread

This Peanut Butter Banana Protein Bread is amazing.  I've been working to create the full recipe cookbook for the vanilla mix and this one is definitely making the cut!  What could be better than the smell of fresh banana bread filing the house?  I could tell you what's even better.....fresh banana bread that won't overload with you carbs, sugar or unhealthy oils.  This one clocks in at a cool 25 grams per huge slice and a bonus dose of 9 grams of protein.  Here's a fun comparison of just how great the nutritional information is on this recipe :)
