    Get to know the inspiration behind The Cookie Department's keto line

    The Cookie Department's line of keto cookies was inspired by my wife Elannah's healing journey from traumatic brain injuries.

    You can learn more about that here! https://thecookiedepartment.com/pages/about-us

    Elannah hopes that in sharing her story of overcoming debilitating medical challenges (with the help of the ketogenic diet!), others will feel more empowered, more inner peace and more joy within their own lives.

    This recent interview provides insight not only into the beautiful source of our keto cookie inspiration; my brave, strong, determined wife, but also into better understanding of being or loving a sensitive person. 


    Is Keto Good for Diabetics?

    Is Keto Good for Diabetics?

    Unless you have been living under a rock in 2019, then odds are you’ve heard about the keto diet. This past year, keto broke into the mainstream in a very major way, completely overtaking social media and becoming the de-facto diet for many of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

    But despite the coverage there’s one question that always pops up when the topic turns to keto – is keto good for diabetics?

    Why Diabetics on the Keto Diet Love It

    The keto diet is an eating plan that revolves around eating very low carbs, a moderate amount of protein and higher amounts of high-quality (mostly) unsaturated fats. The diet is particularly favored by those diagnosed with type-2 diabetes because following the plan eventually leads to the body using ketones as its primary fuel source instead of glucose, which it would normally get from carbs. In fact, it can take just a few days of following the keto diet for the body to enter this stage, called “nutritional ketosis.”

    Diabetics on the keto diet in Los Angeles were naturally among the first to tout the body-slimming benefits of this ancestral eating plan, but more importantly, its results are backed by scientific research. Research studies have shown that people with type-2 diabetes can effectively lose weight and lower their blood sugar levels by being on the keto diet. In fact, in one study, people with type-2 diabetes not only lost weight, they also needed less medication and lowered their A1c after following the keto diet for one year.

    Overcoming the Biggest Hurdle for Diabetics on the Keto Diet

    Although keto is good for diabetics, it’s not to say that sticking to the diet is easy. Being on the keto diet takes a lot of commitment because there are restrictions in the eating plan. For those without diabetes, this means avoiding sweets and processed foods among other things. While this might seem like it doesn’t apply to those with diabetes because they already avoid these foods, the truth is a lot of the artificial sweeteners used to make diabetic-friendly desserts have been shown to adversely affect blood glucose levels to the point that they increase one’s risk of developing diabetes and obesity.  

    Thankfully, The Cookie Department has created a solution to help curve your cravings, whether you’re on the keto diet, on the paleo diet, have a gluten sensitivity or are diabetic. With our new line of gluten-free, keto-friendly cookies, diabetics on the keto diet in Los Angeles and the rest of the country can finally enjoy their desserts again.
