Gluten Free is Life

I am a gluten-free wife, runner & blogger with two children in Columbus, Ohio. After my celiac diagnosis in 2006, I have made it my mission to embrace an entirely new approach to nutrition in a gluten-free world, exploring options that run the gamut from “made from scratch” homemade bread to sampling and reviewing the gluten-free prepared foods that are continuously being introduced to the market. While navigating the waters of becoming gluten-free, I share my experiences and pass along valuable product reviews in addition to helping other moms of celiac kids develop healthy menus that are kid-friendly and palatable. I feel that I am a valuable resource for those who are newly diagnosed, as well as for the more seasoned gluten-free veterans.

Product Review: Yes! To Cookies 

Thursday, May 20, 2010 11:27:28 AM



I received some complimentary samples of Yes! To Cookies cookies a couple of months back. I don’t like to “sit on” reviews for this long, but I don’t like to write negative reviews either. I have been thinking about the “right” way to write the review and now believe that I am ready.

Yes! To Cookies were born when a man was trying to create a cookie for his love who suffered from severe insulin dependent diabetes. Traditional cookies with starch & artificial sweeteners caused her blood sugars to rise. After many, many attempts, he came up with the perfect starch-free, sugar-free cookie that didn’t cause a rise in his love’s blood sugar. Some Yes! To Cookies facts from the site:

  • Zero Sugar
  • Zero Starch
  • Zero Gylcemic Index
  • Zero Digested Carbs
  • Zero Worries

Cocoa-Licious flavor: Erythritol, Cereal Fiber Psyllium*, Butter, Egg, Whey Protein Isolate, Cocoa Powder, Psyllium Husk, Organic Gum Acacia, Natural Vanilla flavor, Spices, Cellulose HP-SA, Sodium Bicarbonate, Rebaudioside A (as a sweetener) and Salt.

Strawberry-Banana Blitz flavor: Erythritol, Cereal Fiber Psyllium*, Butter, Egg, Whey Protein Isolate, Psyllium Husk, Organic Gum Acacia, Natural Strawberry, Banana and Vanilla flavors, CelluloseGum, Sodium Bicarbonate, Rebaudioside A (as a sweetener) and Salt.

I have to honest here, we did not care for these cookies at all. The strawberry-banana blitz tasted like bubble gum. The cocoa-licious tasted chemicaly. Jon, Lindsey & I all sampled both flavors & we all had the same opinion. I do want to point out that we don’t have to follow a sugar-free diet, so there may not be many options out there available that don’t raise the blood sugar, which is a big concern for diabetics.

Yes! To Cookies can be purchased on, a location near you or on the Yes! To Cookies website. They are available in mix form or premade.
