Yes! To Cookies Review and Giveaway (Closed)


Zero Gluten
Zero Sugar
Zero Starch
Zero Worries


About Yes! To Cookies:

If Love could be listed as an ingredient, it would be the very first one found on the Yes! To Cookies box. Yes! To Cookies is a healthy and delicious recipe created through one mans love for a woman. Not just a woman, but one with severe insulin-dependent diabetes.







Confronted by this unforgiving disease and heart-broken by her constant battles with the exhausting ups and downs of brittle diabetes, he knew he had to do something.






She had tried every recommended diet and every artificial sweetener on the supermarket shelf without success. Yet he believed there was something that could nutritionally work to her betterment; something to combat the rapid sugar spikes and plunges she endured on a daily basis and give her the wiggle-room in her diet that she craved.






The low-calorie, artificially sweetened products available had never quite tasted right to either of them, worse yet they were contributing to her unpredictable blood sugar swings. He decided he could do better.






He knew that he could not use starch and sugar. Foods with these ingredients always caused his sweetheart to have unpredictable high blood sugars followed by scary low blood sugar crashes. He had never heard of baking without starch but he knew that he had to try, and he had an idea! What if he left out the starch and used fiber instead?


What is special about Yes! To Cookies ?

(Taken from the package)
Mmmmm, Chewy, Crunchy, mouth-watering gluten free cookies. Yes! To Cookies is sweetened with erythiritol and rebaudioside A-Stevia.  These sweeteners have no signigicant effect on blood sugar or calories consumed.  They also do not cause the gastric problems of many sugar alcohols.  Made with fiber instead of starch and flour(wich digests into sugar), Yes! To Cookies are a delicious worry-free way to satisfy snack cravings with fresh baked cookies!

Why Yes! To Cookies are for you:

You're on a low-carb diet:

A low carb diet is great for your health and weight but sometimes you still get a craving for a cookie. If you're watching your carbs, you know that cookies aren't on the menu...until now!





All-natural and delicious Yes! To Cookies will satisfy your hunger without short-circuiting your nutrition. We replaced starch and sugar with 100% natural cholesterol-lowering fiber that's calorie free and zero calorie sweeteners.


Each cookie has so little digestible carbohydrates that we can actually say it has zero starch and zero sugar! The 22 carbohydrates in a serving of Yes! To Cookies mix is not digested since these carbs come from fiber and no calorie sweeteners instead of starch and sugar.



You have a Child(ren) with Autism or ADHD:


Studies show that autistic children, who are unable to properly break down certain proteins, could benefit from a gluten- and casein-free diet. Yes! To Cookies is a delicious way of allowing your child to enjoy the wonder of cookies, without the ingredients that are potentially harmful to them. Yes! To Cookies products are gluten-free (because they are made with fiber and not wheat or grains) and casein-free (because these proteins are removed during the whey-separation process). Children with other developmental disorders (such as ADHD) can also reap the benefits of Yes! To Cookies wholesome, all-natural goodness.

You are a Diabetes Sufferer:

Many people diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes feel like they will never again enjoy fun foods like cookies. That is simply not true!
.



Choosing to eat healthy foods is important to maintaining well-managed blood glucose levels. Now cookies can be a yummy and satisfying part of your meal plan.

Because Yes! To Cookies treats contain very little digestible carbohydrates and virtually no starch or sugar, diabetes sufferers can safely enjoy Yes! To Cookies products without risking harmful side-effects.



Gluten-Intolerance Sufferers


Those who suffer from gluten-intolerance (or have conditions that require them to eliminate starch and gluten from their diets) may find it difficult to find healthy treats that are still delicious. Yes! To Cookies products are made with ingredients that safely replace gluten, without sacrificing taste.

Expectant Mothers

Between 1 and 3 percent of all pregnant women will develop gestational diabetes, a condition that can cause harm to both mother and child if left untreated. According to http://www.familydoctor.org/, if you have gestational diabetes, your doctor may choose to limit the amount of starch and sugar you eat, for your safety, for your safety, and for the health of your baby. Foods that you once enjoyed, like cookies, may suddenly become off limits.

 Because the amount of sugar and starch in their diets is generally limited, moms-to-be may have found themselves facing unfulfilled cravings - until now. Yes! To Cookies products contain fibers and sweeteners that aren't digested or absorbed, so they are guaranteed to have virtually no impact on a pregnant mother's glucose, instead passing harmlessly through the body while promoting healthy regularity.

These yummy treats are great for the whole family!




Yes! To Cookies 


per serving:



ZERO grams of digestible carbohydrates

ZERO grams of starch

ZERO grams of sugar

ZERO net carbs

ZERO glycemic index (GI)

(Oatmeal Cookies GI=55, one of the lowest GI cookies)

PLUS 7 grams of health FIBER (as much as 3 cups of broccoli)



All of these factors contribute to better blood glucose control as compared to eating cookies made with starch and sugar or slowly digested sweeteners. YES! You can have yummy cookies that satisfy your sweet tooth without feeling guilty or challenging your blood glucose


My Review:

Yes! To Cookies was generous enough to provide me with samples of their delicious, ready-to-eat Cocoa-Liscious and Strawberry-Banana Blitz flavors for review. I was a little worried at first. I thought, "Hmm, a cookie with NO sugar?" I wonder how that will taste. So, I opened the package and smelled them! (I know I'm weird) And they smelled Yummy!
Next came the taste test.
Little bite.Little bite.Swallow.
YUMM!

I was greatly suprised at how good they were! Finally a cookie I can eat witout the worry of packing on some extra pounds.

If you are on a diet these really fill you up. After eating just three cookies I was actually full!  How great right?!

This is one SMART cookie!
