10 Keto-Friendly Treats That Actually Taste Good

10 Keto-Friendly Treats That Actually Taste Good

Recently, we did an Instagram Live with Deana, the founder of Good Dee's low carb baking mixes and learned a lot about the company and some great tips and tricks for each of the mixes! Below you will find some great notes from the Instagram Live, but feel free to watch/listen to the video below: 

 

How did Good Dee’s Come to Be?

  • Deana started her business after having her first baby. She noticed post-pregnancy body and metabolism changes that made losing weight the “calorie counting” way more difficult. After doing some research, she found the keto/low carb lifestyle.

  • Deana also discovered how much sugar is a trigger for her, which made sense since diabetes runs in her family.

  • This prompted her to start baking and experimenting with low carb flours and sweeteners.

  • With the support of her entrepreneur family, she then launched Good Dee’s!
