Happy Friday! I hope you are having a great day wherever you are!
Today, I would like to talk about an amazing company called KNOW Better Bread that is located right here in Atlanta! As a health nut/foodie, I am always excited to try new products that are made with wholesome ingredients, good for me, and made locally.
I had heard of KNOW Better Bread from a friend a few months ago. They are a very new company. KNOW Foods helps health conscious consumers achieve their diet and fitness goals by producing a nutritionally superior, natural, non-GMO, grain/gluten-free and great tasting alternative to traditional grain/gluten-based foods. Yay!
Last week, another friend of mine emailed me asking if I had tried their bread (my friends know me well) and put me in contact with the founder, Steve Hanley. They both asked if I would be interested in writing a review on my blog. So here we are. All I have to say is that this company ROCKS! Not only is Steve enthusiast about his products, but he answered every question I had almost immediately. Also, he sent me this amazing package of goodies to try! I mean…come on! A foodie’s dream!!!

I recently found out that I have a serious intolerance to wheat and am cutting out wheat and gluten 100%. Awesome. Bye bye my beloved Ezekial bread. Therefore, this shipment showed up at my door at the perfect time. All of their products are grain-free, gluten-free, contain no trans fats, non-gmo, high protein, high fiber, low sodium, and low carb. You are probably wondering what the heck does it contain. Well, most of their products are made with almond flour, coconut flour, chia, flax, and coconut oil. Hello superfoods! Coconut flour makes things super dense which I love! It is also loaded with fiber which helps to keep my fuller longer.
The one ingredient that they use that is new to me is called allulose. Have you heard of it??? It is a sweetener that has a 0 glycemic index. I emailed Steve about it, and here is what he said…
We love Allulose – that ingredient is an absolute game-changer! It is:
- Certified Non-GMO
- Kosher Certified
- Scheduled to be certified organic next year!
- Has a zero glycemic index!
- Only 10% of the calories
Sounds good to me! In my opinion, all of their products have just the right amount of sweetness especially those with Enjoy Life Mini-Chips. I love the muffins and waffles. I especially like to have a waffle with sunbutter on it an hour or so before I workout. OMG. It is the perfect fuel.
Their buns and slices and also great. Again, both are so dense that they fill me up, but in a good way.
The bread is a little pricey, BUT you pay for what you get! For 2 packs of the slices, you get 8 slices for $10. If you want to feel good about what you are putting in your body, it is money well spent to switch to this bread. 1 slice is enough for me, so I can make the 8 slices last a while. All of their products freeze really well! They recommend consuming what you buy in a few days or put it in the refrigerator or freezer which is a GOOD THING! You want your food to go bad quickly. It means there are not a lot of fillers in there to make it last longer on the shelf.
Here is what Steve said about the price of their products:
We are seeking to “reimagine bread” and transition bread from a “commodity price, sawdust ingredients, toxic in nature” situation to a “higher price, nutritionally superior, healthiest part of your meal” type perception…
If you are interested in trying this awesome bread, you can place an order here. Otherwise, if you live in Atlanta, you can find it at Corner Cafe or Atlanta Fish Market. It’s also available at a few other places in the country. Check out the KNOW Better Bread website to learn more!
Now go out there and have some fun with your family and friends this weekend! A friend from Chicago is coming to visit us this weekend! It certainly has been a good week for Chicago. Go Cubbies! My family and I are pretty proud to be from Chi-Town!
