this unique mix of seeds, nuts, apples, and coconut has been carefully crafted to create a low glycemic and high powered breakfast.
kirfco. founder katie coleman had all but sworn off cereal and granola because of the effect it had on her blood sugar levels. "i tried everything - even super high-fiber cereals, but no matter what, my blood sugar level would go way up then drop a couple of hours later without fail. even though i loved the taste and knew the ingredients were healthy (full of whole grains), i had to give it up."
she was finally able to control her morning blood sugar levels by eating a breakfast of yogurt, nuts, seeds, coconut, cinnamon and a touch of fruit or honey.
"that's when i came up with my no-grain granola. this stuff is amazing; not only does it taste great, but it's high in protein, and has a ton of fiber. i barely have to take any insulin for it, and i stay full and satisfied even past lunchtime."
Organic seeds (flax, pumpkin, sunflower, sesame), almonds, dried apples, honey, organic coconut flakes, organic coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon, salt.
Katie coleman, founder of keep it real food co., was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was 11 years old.
at the time of her diagnosis, the recommendation was to substitute sugar with artificial sweeteners. katie quickly realized that store-bought foods marked as “low-sugar” or “sugar-free” still contained a sizable amount of carbohydrates (because of white flour or other high-glycemic ingredients), and that artificial sweeteners tasted fake and contained nasty chemicals. because of this, she and her mom baked at home simply using less sugar, and experimented with whole grain flours and other naturally low-carbohydrate ingredients.
as an adult, katie became increasingly skeptical of foods with health claims like “low-carb” or “all-natural” that have a long list of ingredients, many of which look like they were created in a lab. because she tests her blood sugar level multiple times a day, katie can literally measure the effect foods have on her body, giving her a unique perspective as she designs recipes for treats and snacks.
more and more, we are all realizing how important a diet of whole foods is to living a long, healthy life. this has inspired katie to take action and create great-tasting snacks made of real ingredients that will make you happy inside and out.
