YES! To Cookies GIVEAWAY! Ends 3/31



Diet restrictions shouldn't have to mean giving up your favorite treats. We're all guilty with trying to "cheat" or go against the Doctor's orders every now and then. Why not have a treat that you wouldn't have to feel guilty about?!

I love cookies and decided to contact Yes! To Cookies for a possible giveaway and they happily agreed. They mailed a package of cookies out promptly to my home and due to my being ill, this giveaway is a bit late so I apologize not only to the owners of Yes! To Cookies, I also apologize to my readers.



Yes! To Cookies are all natural cookies which is available in two flavors (Ready to eat or Mixes):
Cocoa-Licious
Strawberry-Banana Blitz

I absolutely love the names! I'm here to tell you about the company and the products, this is not a review. However, I want you to visualize taking a bite of a loved one's homemade banana bread. The Strawberry-Banana Blitz has a distinctive taste that reminded me of my grandmother's fresh, baked banana bread.

I'd now like to share what the company has to say about these cookies, each quote is accompanied with the link to that particular passage.

Low Carb Cookies
Have your (Zero Carb) cookie and eat it too!

A low carb diet is great for your health and weight but sometimes you still get a craving for a cookie. If you're watching your carbs, you know that cookies aren't on the menu...until now!


All-natural and delicious Yes! To Cookies will satisfy your hunger without short-circuiting your nutrition. We replaced starch and sugar with 100% natural cholesterol-lowering fiber that's calorie free and zero calorie sweeteners.


Each cookie has so little digestible carbohydrates that we can actually say it has zero starch and zero sugar! The 22 carbohydrates in a serving of Yes! To Cookies mix is not digested since these carbs come from fiber and no calorie sweeteners instead of starch and sugar.

At Yes! To Cookies we truly believe that everyone deserves to enjoy a vital and dynamic life...with cookies.


Autism & ADHD
Doctors are now recommending that autistic children be placed on a gluten and casein free diet. It has long been thought that diet affects Autism in children. Many believed food allergies played a role. Studies now show that many autistic children are unable to properly break down certain proteins.

But cookies are a natural to a child. Now you can say Yes! to Cookies when your child asks!


Blood Glucose
Many people diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes feel like they will never again enjoy fun foods like cookies. That is simply not true!

Choosing to eat healthy foods is important to maintaining well-managed blood glucose levels. Now cookies can be a yummy and satisfying part of your meal plan.

Each Yes! To Cookies cookie has so little digestible carbohydrates that we can actually say it has zero starch and zero sugar! The 22 carbohydrates in a serving of Yes! To Cookies is not digested since these carbs come from fiber and all natural, no calorie sweeteners instead of starch and sugar.

You can have diabetes and still enjoy a handful of cookies!


Weight Loss
The creator of Yes! To Cookies and his wife struggled with weight loss. With the advice of their physicians they had shifted their diets away from starchy, lower-nutrition foods while continuing to perfect the promising Yes! To Cookies recipe.

As the baking trials progressed over weeks, then months, they began to lose weight. A year passed, then two. Remarkably, they gradually lost 100 pounds each! Meanwhile the cookie recipe just got better and better. Whenever their sweet tooth called, and they didn’t want to eat starch and sugar, they knew the answer was simply Yes! To Cookies.

Now you too can have this same heavenly, healthful treat. Enjoy this wonderful snack made from fiber and all natural, gluten-free, carb calorie-free ingredients...Created with love for someone you love.


Gluten Free
Many who are sensitive to gluten believe that finding cookies without gluten that taste like yummy real cookies is impossible. Those with Irritable Bowl Syndrome (IBS) must often eliminate starch as well as gluten from their diet. Making cookies without starch seemed impossible, until now. Yes! To Cookies are a fun new way to enjoy all natural, zero gluten, zero starch, zero sugar absolutely delicious cookies.

Gluten free cookies frequently replace gluten with high calorie, high carbohydrate starches. Yes! To Cookies replaces gluten, starch and sugar with healthy fiber and zero calorie all natural sweeteners!

YES! You can enjoy a handful of gluten free cookies



Fiber in Cookies
A diet high in fiber is good for you and can help control the amount of calories you consume from carbohydrates. A diet high in fiber fills you up faster and is important for proper food digestion, providing the bulk your body needs to move the food through the different stages of digestion. A diet filled with soft, over processed, high carbohydrate food is an invitation for trouble.

Yes! To Cookies is made from natural, healthy fiber.

Get the fiber you need the fun and delicious way with Yes! To Cookies cookies. Each big cookie has 7 grams of fiber!


Kids & Cookies
Every day we hear about the growing problems of obesity and diabetes in children. Now you can feed your after school gang's sweet tooth with homemade cookies that look, taste and smell just like regular cookies, but are healthy, nutritious fiber instead of cookies made with starch and sugar. A plate full of warm-from-the-oven cookies that are delicious and nutritious is one step closer to helping your whole family and even your friends to eat healthier and feel better.

The real truth is, these are very special cookies. Because now a child who must watch their blood glucose or who needs to lose a few pounds can enjoy a guilt-free, fear-free, pain-free handful of yummy, nutritious cookies. Yes! To Cookies is also zero gluten, perfect for children who are sensitive to baked foods made with gluten.


Pregnancy
At Yes! To Cookies, we understand that pregnancy is a very special wondrous time in your life. Unfortunately between 1 and 3 percent of all pregnant women develop gestational diabetes and that frequency is on the rise.

Developing diabetes during your pregnancy can be frightening. According to www.FamilyDoctor.org, if you have gestational diabetes, your doctor may choose to limit the amount of starch and sugar you eat, for your safety, and for the health of your baby. Foods that you once enjoyed, like cookies, may suddenly become off limits.We know that when you 'are eating for two' you can experience very intense hunger cravings and the desire to 'munch' can be overwhelming! Fortunately, Yes! To Cookies can help.

Yes! To Cookies are zero starch, zero sugar, zero gluten cookies. Since the fiber and sweeteners in Yes! To Cookies aren't digested or absorbed, they will have almost no impact on your blood glucose.The fiber will satisfy your desire for a sweet treat and then pass harmlessly through your body promoting healthy regularity.




Fitness and Health
You care about your health. Whether you're an athlete or simply want to get fit, why undermine your fitness program and health goals by snacking on treats that satisfy your sweet tooth but contribute to poor health? At Yes! To Cookies we know that great health starts with great nutrition.

Most 'sugar free' or 'no sugar added' cookies or snacks still contain starch or other forms of digestible carbohydrates which our bodies turn into sugar. We replaced starch and sugar with 100% natural cholesterol-lowering fiber that's calorie free and zero calorie sweeteners. Now you can enjoy fantastic healthy cookies that have zero digestible carbohydrates. At Yes! To Cookies we truly believe that everyone deserves to enjoy a vital and dynamic life.



Now that you have read all of the quoted passages from Yes! To Cookies, how does this product sound to you? Honestly, this is a product that I'd be happy to share with my loved ones.
