Good for your Gut Goodies

Allergy Free Baking – Oakville

It seems as if we all know someone who is avoiding gluten, dairy, sugar, eggs…the list goes on.

 

About the Business

Good for your Gut Goodies is a home bakery offering gluten free, dairy free and mostly sugar free baked goodies that are packed with nutrition.  The baked goods are not your typical gluten free fare that are often refined and loaded with sugar.  These goodies are made with many ‘superfoods’ like chia, flax, coconut oil, sea vegetables, goji berries, raw cacoa and spirulina to name a few.

Why add these items?  Many of us are nutritionally deficient in some vitamin and/or mineral due to our standard North American diets of processed dairy, packaged foods and overly refined goodies.  Did you know that the Vitamin C content in a tomato has decreased by 80 percent in the last 30 years?  All the more reason to eat more nutrient dense foods and what better way to do so, than through goodies!

All goodies are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and good for you fats.  When we are eating healthier foods and less sugar, we get fewer cravings, we have more energy, our skin looks better and our moods improve.  I hope you enjoy these treats!

Our Philosophy

All baked goods are homemade with natural ingredients and a focus on improving health and maximizing nutrition.  The goodies are good for your gut and won’t go to your waistline because they are; gluten free; dairy free; free of refined sugar; high in fiber; higher in protein; made with healthier carbs; and only healthy fats.

About the Baker

Linda Ljucovic, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, CHRP, Hatha Yoga Teacher

I decided to open Good for your Gut Goodies after about 6 years of feeding my kids with a gluten and dairy free diet for health reasons.  My husband is a meat eater and I am an ‘almost vegetarian’ so we had no choice but to be flexible in feeding the family.  I am passionate about nutrition and healthy eating and have loved baking for as long as I remember.  I missed the old days when I could whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookies and treat my family and friends – so I began baking super healthy versions of my old favourites plus some new creative ones incorporating raw food principles so my family and I could enjoy baked goodies again.  Who knew healthy treats could taste so good?!
