Like many kids, mainstream snacks and cereals were a memorable part of my childhood. There’s nothing I loved more than chocolate puffs for breakfast or a delicious sandwich cookie dunked in a glass of cold milk.
Unfortunately, when I turned 17, I was diagnosed with T1 diabetes and had to give up many of my favorite snacks since they are typically loaded with sugar and empty carbs.
I started eating Keto to help manage my blood sugar, but the few healthy options available tasted like cardboard. I got fed up! I wanted delicious snacks that would satisfy my cravings but weren’t loaded with all the sugar and empty carbs.
So in 2017, I started baking low carb versions of all my favorite snacks. My first creation was Catalina Crunch Dark Chocolate Cereal. Our early customers loved it so much they wanted a Cinnamon flavor, so I made that too. After two more years and a lot of fun in the kitchen, we've expanded to eight Cereal flavors, four flavors of Sandwich Cookies and four flavors of our Keto Crunch Mix snack mix.
Eating our snacks makes me feel like a kid again. I am so proud of what we’ve created and I can’t wait to share our delicious snacks with you!
