With bikini season just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to step up your health regime and discover delicious, guilt free ingredients. Eating healthy is about so much more than looking good. It’s about treating your body with care, and feeling good while doing it.
With my yoga practice now an integral part of my daily routine, I’ve realized the importance of eating well. My energy, strength and overall mood relies so heavily on what I put into my body. My Lovelier Days will be introducing monthly posts that focus on health, so all of you lovely readers can follow along my journey towards a healthier lifestyle.
When you hear the words gluten-free and vegan, you might wonder, how could that possibly taste good?! I was quite the skeptic as I love my dairy and have never sought out healthy sweets before. I had always thought that if it was missing dairy, it couldn’t be worth trying. So, you could say I was a disbeliever. While exploring the downtown core of Burlington this week, I passed by a bake shoppe I had heard so much about.
Kelly’s Bake Shoppe is a bakery owned by a dynamic mother and daughter duo. Kelly Childs and Erinn Weatherbie use only organic, fair-trade and plant based ingredients. Pink details decorate the shop, giving it a wholesome, welcoming atmosphere. I have always ventured out to support local shops that put love and care into their products.
I fell head over heels with the shop. Everything in the shop is vegan, gluten and peanut free- everything! I ordered myself an iced green tea, and a few cupcakes to try.
I had always lived under the assumption that any baked good missing dairy wasn’t worth trying, and this shoppe truly changed my mind. The cupcakes were rich, soft, and so tender I couldn’t believe they were dairy-free!
I would encourage all of my readers to venture out and give dairy and gluten free sweets a chance. When you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, baked goods like these are the perfect alternative!
