About The Best Free From
I personally have been on a low-carb diet for health reasons since early 2018. I’ wasn’t in it to lose weight, – even though it started out like that. I wanted to shed a few pounds and found a low-carb diet is a quick enough solution for that.
So started eating cucumber and greens and maybe plain chicken and cheese, and that was acceptable for a few weeks; until the extra weight disappeared and I started to notice significant changes in my health and in my everyday life; like I would wake up fresh and ready for the day ahead, I mean, I WAKE UP because before then I would doze of in the night from extreme exhaustion but never had a proper sleep, I used to get out of the bed feeling like ready to collapse from tiredness.
So, the first and very noticeable benefit of blocking carb, sugars and gluten out of life was the quality of sleep I finally had. As the result of a good night’s sleep, I had a lot more energy and I enjoyed my life.
Secondly, and probably the best result was that my thyroid stopped playing up. I had an over-active thyroid, which would swell up to a point when it was difficult to swallow food (that’s how it started symptoms wise; I thought I had something stuck in my throat, it was difficult to swallow the food down) then the bloating disappeared as well as my reflux. The dark circles vanished from under my eyes and I looked 10 years younger (according to my fiancé). I felt so much better. I felt physically and mentally well after no longer consuming sugar and carbohydrates or preservatives…
BUT …. and there is that BUT, I was HUNGRY FOR SWEETS ALL THE TIME.
……and I don’t mean I was craving sugar; but I was craving desserts, not even too sweet stuff, but cakes and breads and cookies and buns and chocolate and so on and so on.

People in general expect my products to taste like sandpaper, I guess?
But I love seeing the surprise on their faces, when they realise these actually taste like the “real stuff” .
I wanted to get these healthy bakes into Your kitchen; and this is how Ireland’s very first Keto/Low Carb Bakery was born. But, I soon realised I just wouldn’t have the time and I’m sort of geographically limited too, so came up with a solution for you. I have created a range of 7 Dry Mixes; Our Versatile Savoury Dry Mix, Our Versatile Sweet Dry Mix, Our Keto Seedy Bread Dry Mix, Our Keto Magic Dry Mix, A Keto Wrap Dry Mix, our Spicy Carrot Cake Dry Mix and last but not least our Keto Brownie Dry Mix (and recently all tweaked to be even tastier and easier to whip up right in the comfort of your own kitchen). All of our super easy and quick to make Dry Mixes can be whipped up in no time at all, with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry, but best of all, our mixes are “FREE FROM” SUGAR, GLUTEN, some DAIRY FREE, all LOW CARB AND HIGH IN FIBRE, protein and healthy fats and simply put, good for you and your whole family. Our Versatile Savoury Dry Mix (link to Blog Post with much more info) is just one of our Low Carb Mixes, together with the Keto Magic Dry Mix and our KETO Seedy Bread Mix which you can use to make the softest KETO rolls, Keto Bagels and the most scrumptious KETO crackers. Our Keto Magic Dry Mix will allow you to make our Artisan White Bread or Bread rolls, dairy free pizza bases (it will be our little secret) The Keto Wrap Dry Mix makes delicious Low Carb Wraps and Low Carb Pizza Bases, which the whole family can enjoy on your weekly Fajita or Pizza night. All freeze incredibly well or can be refrigerated to keep them fresher for longer. Our Versatile Sweet Mix is a fantastic Diabetic Friendly option too, and a must for your repertoire of Low Carb freshly baked goodies. Perfect to curb that sweet tooth and offer endless options for much healthier KETO desserts & sweet KETO treats, like Low Carb muffins, Lamingtons, Tiramisu, Cookies and Pancakes, Waffles, Cupcakes, Pie crust and Sponge cakes to name just a few (the possibilities are endless). We have many KETO recipe ideas on our Website and Facebook pages to help inspire your Low Carb Baking at home and make the baking enjoyable too (not just the eating). Simply by changing your wet ingredients you can create a handful of different sweet or savoury treats to your own taste. Since my last website update, I have expanded my product range, and I’m now happy to a say that, you can also buy the ingredients that are hard to find within Ireland, like sweeteners, fibres that are essential for low carb baking.
