I have a pretty significant sweet tooth.
Anything sweet is my weakness, honestly.
I’ve made some pretty significant strides toward reducing the amount of sugar I eat overall because, let’s be real, I’m not trying to contract diabetes anytime soon.
That being said, I’m still eating sweets. Reducing? Sure. Fully abstaining? Never.
I’ve been expanding the items on my go-to sweets lists with the intention of being healthier sweets. Which, I know, sounds like an oxymoron, but I swear it’s not. I’m not the kind of person who has the willpower or desire to just up and never eat sweet things ever again. Applause to those of you who are, I admire your abilities, but that’s just not me. I’m a cookie lover to my core and if I could have a cookie for every meal of the day, I honestly would.
There’s something about cookies that just gets me right in the core of my being. I absolutely love them. So, like I mentioned, I’ve been trying to venture out and, while maintaining the things I love in life, finding ways to make them healthier.
Welp guys, I found Sweet Loren’s cookies and found exactly what I was looking for.
The first ones I tried were the Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk, pictured above, and I have to say – they are awesome! They hit all the buzz-worthy phrases of 100% whole grain, vegan, nut free, dairy free, gluten free, and non-GMO. Trendy words that are important to consider on a journey towards healthy living.
My personal favorite though is the Chocolate Chunk.
These bad boys hit a pretty similar tune as far as health-focused materials. Also 100% whole grain, non-dairy, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors, and no transfat.
You guys, they’re amazing. But besides their deliciousness and healthier ingredients than most – Sweet Loren’s has a wonderful story to it’s founding that, as a conscious consumer, I think is important to be aware of.
If you check out the “Our Story” page on Sweet Loren’s website, you’ll find that it was founded after Loren beat cancer at a young age and became aware of what ingredients she was putting into her body. A girl after my own heart, she found a way to make cookies healthier and wholesome. Doesn’t get much better than that.
I love knowing the stories behind why companies are started. Sweet Loren’s is nearly exclusively the cookie brand I buy now. (I have a cookie addiction and Sweet Loren’s doesn’t yet have a sugar cookie flavors okay!)
So for anyone out there who, like me, wants to make moves toward health without sacrificing all the good things in life, Sweet Loren’s cookies are completely worth a try.
