Ever wanted to gorge on cupcakes but fear for your health and weight? Yeah you’re not alone, we all do that. On a daily basis. Well, one awesome lady had the bright idea of making our dreams of eating more cupcakes than humanly possible a reality.
All of that is to say that a brand new bakery has opened in Clarkson, and it specialises in healthy eating! Keto Girl Bakes is the name of the store and, as the name suggests, it’s all about ketogenic foods!
If you’re unaware of the new diet trend, a keto-based diet is all about burning fat more efficiently. Essentially the idea is to eat the lowest amount of carbohydrates (sugar) possible, so that the body begins to burn fat as its fuel instead. When the body is out of carbohydrates the liver will begin to convert fat into energy called ketones, and send those to the brain for fuel. The goal is to become entirely dependent on fat, instead of carbs, and that is known as the ketosis stasis, which is actually extremely hard to achieve.
Well, it’s going to be a lot easier to reach the state of ketosis because Mississauga’s newest bakery is all about it. Keto Girl Bakes is a bakery where everything in-store is homemade with practically no carbs at all. And here you will find cupcakes of every variety your heart can imagine, Nanaimo bars, lemon cream cheese bars, caramel chocolate blondies, pizzas, and lots more. On top of that you’ll be able to get your teeth on Lazy Dogs, which are low-carb beef hot dogs on a stick!
The new store can be found at 1900 Lakeshore Road West, and it’s an awesome addition to Mississauga’s healthy eating scene. You’re now free to inject some beloved foods into your life, and not worry about the carb intake whatsoever. Just be sure to thank the Keto Girl herself!
