Guiltless Goodies world!
I am so excited to be able to share with you my love for everything Guiltless Goodies! My name is Jahdiel Caudle. I am a stay at home mother of two very active boys and one newborn little girl. I live in Midland, Texas and am admin for several mom groups including Natural Moms of Midland and Midland Crunchy Mamma Tribe. I have a passion for helping mothers through natural living, pregnancy, and managing their home life simply. I am currently in the process of becoming a birth boot camp teacher.
My wonderful husband was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 12. We started seeing an integrative medicine doctor about 6 years ago to help manage his diabetes and possibly cure him from the disease. When they told me we had to completely change the way we eat my first thought was “you mean I have to give up my cake and cookies?”. I had to completely relearn how to cook every meal we liked. I loved to cook and bake but I was working and pregnant with our first child and didn’t have time for it. Our doctor was the first person to tell me about Guiltless Goodies. I placed a bulk order for pizza crust, bread and tortillas. I fell in love! The best part was it didn’t raise my husbands blood sugar and it was so yummy! I started stocking up my freezer with everything Guiltless Goodies offered. It was convenient, delicious, and healthy.
Five years later, here we are. I still order everything Guiltless Goodies. They have come a long way and now offer donuts, cookies, brownies and my favorite is the 7 Seed Flour which allows me to make all kinds of treats on my own. We mostly eat Guiltless Goodies for breakfast. Both my older kids go to school and it is so nice to know I can grab them a donut and they will be full until lunch. They can enjoy donuts with dad at school and I feel good about knowing it fills them up, it doesn’t raise their blood sugar, and they LOVE them. We also take muffins and donuts camping to fit into our outdoor adventurous lifestyle. We need something quick that gives us energy throughout the day, and I haven’t found anything that does that better.
My most recent discovery of how amazing Guiltless Goodies is, was when trying to increase my milk supply while breastfeeding. About two months ago we all came down with a stomach bug. My milk supply tanked. I started eating Guiltless cookies and my supply increased very quickly. I’ve been giving Guiltless cookies to friends as lactation cookies ever since.
My new favorite way to use Guiltless 7 Seed Flour is making sausage balls. Such a great snack or lunch option for kids too. Below I've shared my recipe!
Guiltless Sausage Balls
2 c Guiltless Goodies 7 Seed Flour
½ c almond flour
1 Tbsp coconut flour
2 tsp grain free baking powder
½ tsp garlic powder
12 ounces raw cheddar cheese, shredded
1 pound spicy sausage (pastured and nitrate free preferred)
*Preheat oven to 425 F, adjust rack to the middle position. Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
*In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients except the sausage. Use your hands to incorporate the sausage to the dry mix (1-2 minutes until the mixture comes together) The mixture will be damp. Roll the mixture into 1 ½ inch balls and place on the baking sheet.
*Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
*Cool 5 minutes and serve.
*Paleo/ dairy free adaption: omit cheese. Decreases sausage balls to 18.
