    We have a new friend to introduce you to! Her name is Jahdiel, she is a wife and mama to three who integrated our goodies into her family's lifestyle over 5 years ago! We loved learning that our food has made a difference in their lives, after all, that's been our goal since we started! We love being that healthy nourishing option for families out there, and it warms our hearts when we hear from YOU!

    Now before we get too sappy, let's hear from Jahdiel! We hope you enjoy her story AND amazing recipe she shared!

    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.

    Guest Zoe Palmer Talks Type 1 Diabetes + Guiltless Goodies

    Ok Guiltless Fam,

If you're unfamiliar with Type 1 Diabetes we've included some visuals we pulled off the web that help explain how it can affect the body.

    Hi y’all!

    My name is Zoe Palmer - also known as @zoeepalmerr on Instagram, and I am writing to share my love and appreciation for Guiltless Goodies!

    My journey with Guiltless Goodies all started back in April of 2018. I was just a little over a month of being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the late age of 20 years old, almost 21. I had honestly been struggling with trying to find a breakfast that was not only good for me and my blood sugars, but that was tasty enough for my cravings! I was a HUGE dessert person before my diagnosis in March of 2018. I thought I would never be able to enjoy anything sweet again without the risk of having my sugars go high UNTIL, I found Guiltless Goodies!!

    Their products have been a life changer and life saver for me. And that’s not even saying enough. I eat their donuts every single morning for breakfast and have their other treats for a light snack to hold me over until my next meal. Their products have worked so well for me, that I don’t even have to take insulin for them. That is a huge success for me. When I don’t have to take insulin for something I am going to eat, it just feels like a really big accomplishment. After I was diagnosed with diabetes I was eating frozen waffles that were lower in carbs and had zero flavor.. I mean zero... I was having to take insulin for these and my sugars were still going high. Even if I carb counted right, I was still feeling bad.

    For those of you that don’t know, when your blood sugar goes high you get very lethargic and you get very testy. And who wants to feel that way? I can 100% say, I have never had a high blood sugar after eating Guiltless Goodies. All while not even taking insulin for them!!! Eating their products have really changed my mornings, days, and all around life. After eating my breakfast I feel satisfied, good, and awake! When your blood sugars are in range, so is your mood.

    Fast forward a couple months later and I was finding out my kidneys had been damaged from being undiagnosed with diabetes for so long. I have really been trying to watch my sodium intake because that can help some with keeping the damage under control. I had already been eating Guiltless for awhile and when I was broken the news about my kidneys I started looking at the sodium in everything I was eating. I can’t even explain to y’all the amount of happiness that went through me when I learned that the sodium in Guiltless products are low. I was not ready to give up the donuts, and honestly don’t think I ever will be.

    Lindsey and Daniel have created treats that fit well with a lot of lifestyles. And just to make me love them even more, they CARE about how their products affect your body. Being a diabetic that is super important to me, and that’s a big win in my book. What I am getting at is, if you don’t have Guiltless in your life by now, you are truly missing out! I have even gotten my family, friends, and boyfriend hooked on these sweet treats. And my boyfriend doesn’t have a sweet tooth in his body. Since being diabetic I have really started to pay attention to what I am putting in my body and I am so happy that I found Guiltless Goodies. I would be lost and grumpy without them.

    We are so thankful Zoe shared her experience with us. Above is a photo she sent us of her insulin levels after eating our donuts. She was delighted that her levels hadn't spiked and that she didn't have to take insulin! Simply Amazing! Congrats, Zoe!
