Diet – Keto, Low Carb

Ingredients

  • 1 package Birch Bender's keto-friendly chocolate cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup water
  • cup oil
  • 1 container Birch Benders keto-friendly chocolate frosting
  • 1 sachet Simply Delish Chocolate Pudding
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 can sugar-free cherry pie filling

Instructions

  • Start by preheating your oven to 350° Fahrenheit, and grease 2 6” cake pans well. I use lard to grease my pans.
  • Make cake batter according to the package directions, using 3 eggs, 1/2 cup of water, and 1/3 cup of oil, but instead of baking in one pan, divide between 2 6” pans. I baked my cakes for approximately 22 minutes, but remember that oven temps vary. Allow cakes to cool.
  • While cakes are cooling make your creamy, chocolate pudding layer. Simply add one package of Simply Delish Instant Chocolate Pudding mix, 1 cup of heavy cream, and ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk to a bowl and mix on medium speed for approximately 2 minutes.
  • Now it's time to build your cake. You'll want to have everything; pudding, frosting, and cherries divided into 2 equal portions before starting. It just makes it easier.
  • Start with one of your cake layered, add ½ of the pudding, and smooth. Next, make your chocolate by heating ½ of the frosting in the microwave for approximately 10 seconds. It heats quick! You want the frosting to be thick but pourable. Pour on the ganache and spread evenly, and allow to run down the sides if desired. Next up is your cherry layer! Repeat…and ENJOY!

  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • ½ cup sugar-free white chocolate mint chips

A common question we often hear is what are the nutritional values in your desserts? Are they healthy for me? Are they compatible with my diet and lifestyle? We often ask ourselves these common questions before adding a new product into your life. And that’s perfectly fine, we all make these assessments. Those assessments often revolve around the nutrition label and what’s on that label. This blog will outline the nutritional values for Simply Delish Jels and Puddings.

What are Nutritional Facts? 

Imagine picking up a product in your local grocery store and turning it around to read the label printed on the pack. This label is significant for consumers because it’s filled the valuable information. The information on this label is called the nutritional facts. According to Wikipedia, “Nutritional value or nutritive value as part of food quality is the measure of a well-balanced ratio of the essential nutrients carbohydrates, fat, protein, minerals, and vitamins in items of food or diet concerning the nutrient requirements of theirs.” It’s key to understand the serving size, the total size, and how those values reflect the serving size.

In the world of fun, wobbly, delicious desserts. Name brand desserts like Jello are often in comparison to Simply Delish, especially the sugar-free desserts. Sugar-Free Jello and Sugar-Free Simply Delish Jel make for a tasty dessert, but although, they differ in many ways. This comparison blog features information on how the two desserts differ from one another.

Sugar Free Jello - Simply Delish Ingredients

Ingredients

Simply Delish desserts are created using only natural, plant-based ingredients that are ethically sourced from places all over the world. Each ingredient is carefully chosen to ensure that our desserts stay sweet without the added sugar! Our sugar-free jel contains a blend of GMO-free Erythritol and Stevia. Also, our range is free of any high fructose corn syrups and artificial flavorings and sweeteners. For any additional information on the ingredients used in our Sugar-Free Jel range, read What are the 8 ingredients in Simply Delish.

Jell-O

A popular dessert, Sugar-Free Jello is an easy-to-make product that has been on market for decades. However, this once pantry staple contains non-plant-based ingredients when compared to Simply Delish Sugar-Free Jel.

If you’re picking up a box of Sugar-Free Jello at your local grocery, the ingredients on the package will read:

  • “GELATIN, ADIPIC ACID (FOR TARTNESS), DISODIUM PHOSPHATE (CONTROLS ACIDITY), MALTODEXTRIN (FROM CORN), FUMARIC ACID (FOR TARTNESS), ASPARTAME** (SWEETENER), CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, ACESULFAME POTASSIUM (SWEETENER), SALT, RED 40. **PHENYLKETONURICS: CONTAINS PHENYLALANINE.”

In comparison, the two sugar-free desserts are similar in some aspects, but overall, differ when it comes to what’s in the box!

Sugar Free Jello Comparison to Simply Delish

Jello

Unlike Simply Delish, Jello lacks the certifications that Simply Delish stands proudly by. Looking at a package of sugar-free jello, you may see a small K on the packaging and assume it’s Kosher. The K is certified by a rabbi who accepts gelatin (meat-derived) as kosher. However, according to Delightedcooking.com, Jello brand gelatin desserts are not made using kosher ingredients.

Therefore, these desserts should be enjoyed based on personal discerptions.

Did you know?

Did you know that Jel is recognized worldwide? Especially sugar-free jello! However, different regions of the world call the dessert by different names. Although they go by different names, the dessert is considered the same! In the United States, the common word for this jiggly dessert is either Jello or Jel. Meanwhile, in the UK and South Africa, the common word is Jelly. Don’t get too confused, in America, Jelly is considered a berry or fruit spread you add to your morning toast. It’s so interesting that there are so many different names for this one dessert!

What do you call this delicious dessert?

Strawberry - Sugar Free Jello

This past week has been so exciting! If you haven’t heard, we launched a new Jel flavor! Well, technically, it isn’t a flavor. You’re probably thinking, what the heck are they talking about? A Jel that has no flavor? Like Knox? Similar in some ways, but not exactly like Knox. Think of it as a fresh, clean easel that you can paint whatever you want! With our new Unflavored Jel, you can add your favorite flavorings to create your very own Jel flavor! Maybe mango, apple, or a combination of two different flavors, the possibilities are virtually endless. This blog will give you insight on what exactly Unflavored Jel is and how it differs from Knox!    

What is Unflavored Jel?  

Similar to our other Jel flavors, our Unflavored Jel is just like them, minus the flavoring and sweeteners. As always, our new Jel features all plant-based ingredients and is 100% vegan-friendly. Aside from being plant-based, our new Jel is also gluten-free, keto-friendly, sugar-free, Non-GMO, and PETA-approved! How exciting! Now that you can create ANY Jel flavor, we are looking forward to seeing everyone’s creativity!  

3 Steps to prepare unflavored Jel
How to make Simply Delish Unflavored Jel  
  1. Pour Jel powder into ⅓ cup of COLD WATER and stir until the Jel is completely dissolved.  
  2.  Add 1⅓ cup BOILING WATER and stir for about 30 seconds. Add your favorite flavorings, or jazz it up with some fruits or berries! The more the merrier!  
  3. Place into serving dish or mold until set.  
  4. Allow to cool at room temperature then place in refrigerator  
  5. Sets in 60 Minutes  
  6. Then the best part – Sit back and Enjoy!  
Unflavored Jel Ingredients
Ingredients in Simply Delish Unflavored Jel

As mentioned before, our Unflavored Jel is similar to our other delicious Jel flavors! One of the similarities is that it has the same, plant-based ingredients. And, the best part about this Jel is that it only has 4 ingredients! This Jel isn’t filled with hard-to-read ingredients, instead, you may be familiar with the 4 ingredients. Carrageenan, Dextrin, Potassium Citrate, and Citric Acid are the four, simple ingredients in our Jel. For more information on the ingredients in our flavored Pudding and Jel range, visit our blog post: What are the 8 Ingredients in Simply Delish Desserts?

How is Simply Delish Unflavored Jel different than Knox?

You may be wondering if Simply Delish Unflavored Jel and Knox are similar and if they share the same functions. First, Simply Delish Jel is created with plant-based ingredients, making it a vegan dessert. However, this is where Knox is different. Knox gelatin is made of collagen. This form of gelatin is not vegan-friendly and is derived from animal bones, skin, and connective tissue. Second, keep it sweet! Simply Delish Unflavored Jel is perfect for creating cocktails and desserts! It’s great as a dessert but not as a thickening agent. However, if you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out to us directly!

Over the past week, there has been some exciting news around Simply Delish Desserts. We are thrilled to spread the word and make a few delicious announcements. Being that our range of Jels and Puddings are keto-friendly, we want to clarify why our desserts can be enjoyed while following a keto lifestyle. We also want to share with you and the keto community, the exciting news!

*New Flavor* Simply Delish Lime Jel Dessert

First, in honor of the green holiday, St. Patrick’s Day, we had to launch our NEW Jel flavor. Ironically, this new Jel flavor is green. Can you guess what it is? It’s Lime! You heard right; this new flavor has officially been added to our Jel range. Just like the other Jel flavors, Lime Jel features all-natural, plant-based ingredients. It’s also vegan-friendly, gluten-free, sugar-free and Non-GMO verified.

Summer is right around the corner, which means fun, refreshing desserts, and cocktails. Envision yourself on a hot weekend summer day, creating some delicious vegan Jel shots with a combination of our Strawberry Jel and our Lime Jel, or, incorporate it into a fun summer punch cocktail. Don’t be afraid to keep it original and create a quick, easy, vegan Key Lime Pie. The possibilities are endless when it comes to this fun, zesty flavor! Grab your box today by visiting the Lime Jel page.   

Is Simply Delish Keto-Friendly?  

Yes! Simply Delish is indeed keto-friendly. If you are following a low-carb, keto lifestyle, then you can enjoy Simply Delish Jels and Puddings.  Here are some frequently asked questions with great answers regarding our range being keto-friendly:   

Q: I see the total carbs, the dietary fiber, and the sugar alcohols. It says 10g total carbs per serving on the pudding. Is this the number of carbs left after already subtracting fiber and sugar alcohols?  

A: The carbs stated on the packaging of our Simply Delish pudding show 10g total carbs, but once you take off the dietary fiber and sugar alcohol, the total amount of carbs is 4g Net carbs (as is stated on the packaging).  

 

Q: The Jel states 0 net carbs yet the back of the package states 4 carbs. Please explain?  

A: The carbs stated on the packaging of our Simply Delish jel show 4g total carbs, but those carbs are derived from 4g Sugar alcohols. Once you take off the sugar alcohol, the total amount of carbs is 0g Net carbs (as is stated on the packaging).  

** Please note that our old packaging did not show sugar alcohol in total. We have updated our entire range to show the sugar alcohols. This should be hitting the shelves soon.

Originally from Southern Oregon, sisters Amelia and Kendra are a pair of gluten-free recipe creators with an eye for food photography. Amelia and Kendra are the owners of their successful food blog, Sister Sans Gluten where they share all of their mouth-watering and eye-catching creations.

We virtually sat down with the two sisters to discuss everything from living with Celiac Disease to incorporating a gluten-free lifestyle, favorite gluten-free recipes, and exciting plans for the future! For all things delicious and gluten-free, be sure to check out their blog, recipes and social platforms (linked at the end).

 

Sisters San Gluten

What is celiac disease?

Amelia: Essentially, it’s an autoimmune disease (often hereditary) that causes your body to attack itself (primarily in the digestive track) when you consume gluten. Gluten is a protein (not protein, a protein) found in wheat, rhy, barley, and sometimes oats (often processed in the same facilities as the other three). Because gluten is a protein, it’s SUPER tiny, which means you can’t “just have a taste” or “just take off the croutons” – even the smallest crumb can cause your body to react. Common reactions include horrible stomach and intestinal pain, diarrhea, brain fog, fatigue, for DAYS. Because it triggers an immune response, it lasts longer than say a single stomach ache.

Kendra: As Celiac progresses, the little villi that line the small intestines are corroded away. The first level of corrosion is usually the inability to digest dairy, or lactose intolerance. Your gut literally can’t digest what you are eating and the gluten you put into your body just makes it worse and worse. It’s easy to live without gluten nowadays though. Companies tend to be very good at marking their products gluten-free.

What can you eat with celiac disease?

Amelia: Anything gluten-free! So actually a lot of stuff – just nothing with wheat, rye, or barley which can seem like a lot. Meat, veggies, fruits, dairy, rice, quinoa, corn, gluten-free oats, teff, millet, potatoes, soy products (some soy sauces contain wheat though), sugar, etc. 

Kendra: You have to be careful eating out though. A lot of pre-made sauces/seasonings/salad dressings have hidden gluten that is being used as a thickener or filler. It’s very easy to eat healthily, I’d say. If you can’t eat the gluten in fast food or the food fried in the same oil as gluten-ful food, then it’s easier to decline and make healthier choices!

When did your gluten-free journey begin?

Amelia: Mine began 17 years ago when I was 11 years old – in 6th grade. I had been having stomach aches since I was five (they diagnosed me with lactose intolerance at the time which is a common side effect of undiagnosed Celiac), and it finally got to a point where I wasn’t growing, wasn’t gaining weight, and still have tons of digestive issues. It took months of our mom hounding doctors and gastroenterologists to finally get them to test for Celiac. Once we realized that was it, I immediately started a gluten-free diet and have been fine ever since!

Kendra: As her sister, and living in the same house growing up, when I ate at home it would be gluten-free. However, my Celiac didn’t fully express itself (gene) until my second year of high school. I did, however, have lactose intolerance for most of my preteen and teen years leading up to it.

If any, what are some obstacles you’ve had to overcome Celiac?

Amelia: Traveling was a hard one at first – let alone finding gluten-free foods in local grocery stores and restaurants. It’s always tricky trying to ask/communicate that you’re gluten-free when you don’t speak the same language (traveling in Japan was really tricky but thankfully I had friends with me who could translate!). Even traveling in the US it can be hard – the west coast probably has the highest awareness about gluten-free so you’ll find lots of restaurants/stores that have gluten-free safe food, and tons of people who already know what gluten-free means.

Kendra: Traveling, yeah, and just eating out, if there’s nothing you can eat on the menu, the best you can have is a mediocre house salad. In the past few years though, there has been such an uprising of gluten-free restaurants or gluten-free options at restaurants. A lot of the time now, we even plan our trip around the gluten-free restaurants we want to go to!

Walk us through a typical day, what you make for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

Amelia: I’m a big tea drinker so I always start with a big mug of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, or other amazing black teas (recently found a small shop called Just Add Honey that sells new blends – so good!). For food, I typically go for scrambled eggs with spinach or a yogurt+kefir+berry smoothie. Lunch might be a cobb salad (one of my favorites), tacos (there’s a great taqueria below my apartment), or leftovers from dinner. Snacks might be nuts, cottage cheese, cheese on toast, berries, sliced turkey, or a pb&j (on gluten-free bread). Dinner might be baked salmon and asparagus, chicken with carrots and broccoli, or pork chops and pinto beans.

Kendra: Really easy to start off the day with some sort of protein which will give me that energy boost for the day. I usually go with eggs or a piece of fish, sometimes throw some sausages in there. And of course a large mug of coffee. Lunch is usually snacking; almond butter, peanut butter with a banana, or apple. I tend to top the day off with an early dinner, and we can get really crazy with the recipes here. Soups, huge salads, poultry/beef/pork/fish dishes. Really they mainly consist of a protein and one or two vegetables.

Sisters San Gluten

What is it like growing up in Southern Oregon while following a gluten-free diet?

Amelia: Back in 2004 when I was first diagnosed it was a total gluten-free-food dessert (as was most of the US at the time). It took a lot of talking with our grocery store manager to special order new gf products and meant essentially re-learning how to cook and bake at home (huge shout out to our mom who created TONS of recipes and redid our entire pantry/fridge). Now, there are tons of gluten-free options both in restaurants and stores in the area! I live in San Francisco now and there are also a bunch of safe restaurants and stores here and tons of awareness which makes it all easier.

Kendra: Growing up and when Amelia first got diagnosed, we lived in a very small town in a small valley that didn’t have a lot of options. Our mom kind of frantically took charge and worked with the “Natural” department of our local supermarket to order what gluten-free products were actually being made back in 2004 (which wasn’t a lot). Thankfully our mother is a fabulous cook (she taught us the basics!) and learned to make a lot of the things we suddenly couldn’t eat.

When it comes to baking and cooking, who are your inspirations?

Amelia: Definitely Kendra and my mom – we’re constantly coming up with recipes and getting creative but they’re my main inspiration. I also get so much inspiration from fellow recipe developers and food bloggers/friends in the Instagram foodie community – it’s so key to constantly find a new inspiration! I’m always excited to try recipes for baked goods and dishes that I’ve never tried (a friend recently introduced me to a Vietnamese honeycomb cake that’s amazing and naturally gluten-free). I do always find classic and contemporary French pastry inspiring, as well as Mexican, Central American, Colombian, Ecuadoran, Peruvian, and Brazilian bakes and flavors (love tres leches, pupusas, tacos, arepas, empanadas verdes, and pão de queijo), and recently fell in love with pandan and ube and have been figuring out new recipes to use either flavor like in our ube angel food cake.

Kendra: I love to scroll through Pinterest and if I see a recipe that I’d like to eat I will try to convert it to gluten-free. A lot of the time it works out really easily, but sometimes it calls for experimentation. I love of course the traditional French pastries, but also the post-modern Japanese and Korean pastries that do more with gelatin! Amelia gives me inspiration through her photography and through the things she brings back to try from her travels.

What is your favorite recipe(s) to create?

A: Been really into new flavor combinations for layer cakes! Experimenting with different cake textures and flavors, different fillings/layers, and frostings (whipped ganache is one of my new favorites). I’ve also recently found an appreciation for good white chocolate and tried caramelizing it for the first time – highly recommend it! Made some incredible caramelized white chocolate blondies that were divine.

K: Cookies. For gluten-free, if you have a good base recipe, you can add literally anything to it and create a new cookie. I also bought a donut pan recently and it’s been fun creating recipes for that.

What impact has Simply Delish Desserts made in your life?

Amelia: I’ve been trying to eat less sugar (a little challenging given our proclivity for baking), so having puddings and jels that are sugar-free has been amazing. The boxed jel mixes are particularly helpful in baking because you can use them in pies, any gelatin desserts like panna cotta, tarts, etc. We’ve loved the added challenge of figuring out exciting ways to use a new product and it’s awesome to not have to worry about checking if all the flavors are gluten-free!

Kendra: I can finally eat instant pudding without deeply regretting my life choices later! As someone who is lactose intolerant, the absolute annoyance that would come when milk alternatives wouldn’t work with instant pudding was huge. I used to have to make pudding on the stove with tons of corn starch for it to work.

What is your favorite Simply Delish flavor?

Amelia: The banana pudding! Kendra used it to whip up a “southern” banana pudding with gluten-free ‘nilla wafers and it was SO good. Side story – Kendra and I have loved boxed pudding since we can remember. When we went on camping trips as kids we’d always bring a few boxes of pudding mixes and make them for desserts next to the campfire – hands-down better than s’mores haha. So, having a guaranteed gluten-free/dairy-free option now with Simply Delish is incredible.

Kendra: Chocolate pudding. Full stop. Although I do love me a good jello, so out of the jel mixes, probably strawberry or peach.

What advice do you have for others who follow a gluten-free diet/lifestyle due to Celiac Disease?

Amelia: Don’t be afraid to try gluten-free baking at home! It can seem daunting because there are a bunch of different flours you can use in combination to replace wheat flour, but there are tons of recipes (shameless plug – we’ve got a ton) that will walk you through it and you’ll be able to create incredible baked goods that don’t “taste gluten-free” – even your non-celiac friends will never know it’s gluten-free!

Kendra: Eating is as simple as Google. If you want to see if something is made gluten-free, google it. I guarantee now that you will be able to find it somewhere online if you can’t in-store. Also, if you want to make things at home just get yourself a good flour mix that you can substitute cup for cup in a recipe and you’ll be set. The one thing to look out for is cross-contamination. This can trip you up when you thought you were safe, always ask about it when you eat out, and if you see on the label of a product “Made in the same facility as wheat” that is cross-contamination.

SISTER SANS GLUTEN

What are some future goals you’d like to accomplish?

Amelia: I really want to finally learn how to make French macarons – they’re naturally gluten-free (almond flour-based), but they seem so temperamental. Also, drafting and publishing a cookbook with Kendra as our first Sisters Sans Gluten written product! It’ll be a couple of years but we’ll get there. Aside from baking – I’m starting a Ph.D. program at Oxford this fall so my side goal is convincing Kendra to move to the UK with me and we’ll travel around Britain trying all of the gluten-free bakeries and restaurants we can find.

Kendra: Croissants, also making my own puff pastry. Those layered, flaky, baked things. Also, yes, eating our way across the European continent.

Simply Delish >> 5 Tips on Living with Celiac Disease
Simply Delish >> What is Celiac Disease? 

Until recent years, the term celiac was something uncommon word to most people. Not many people knew of the disease or what it entailed. However, over the past decade, celiac disease awareness has risen drastically. According to BeyondCeliac.com, 1 in 133 Americans, or about 1% of the population lives with celiac disease. While 5-22% of people with celiac disease have an immediate family member who also has the disease. Unfortunately, there is an ongoing struggle when it comes to having celiac. There are no pharmaceutical treatments or cures for the disease. Currently, the only ongoing treatment for celiac is changing your lifestyle to a 100% gluten-free diet. With an increase of awareness and number of cases, this blog will outline what is celiac disease, gluten-free foods, and some fun, gluten-free dessert recipes featuring Simply Delish desserts!

what is celiac disease?

What is celiac disease?

Celiac disease is a serious genetic, autoimmune disease that affects the lining of the small intestines. To protect the small intestines, people with the disease must follow a gluten-free lifestyle. However, when those with celiac disease ingest foods with gluten, the protein within the gluten starts to break down the lining making it difficult for the body to fully absorb the gluten. From there, this leads to malnourishment which can cause other issues such as thyroid disease, osteoporosis, or infertility. There’s an array of different symptoms that one with celiac may experience. However, if you’re experiencing symptoms after eating gluten, we suggest you reach out to your doctor for further support.

What are celiac-friendly foods?

Just because you have celiac disease, doesn’t mean that you have to give up on the foods you once loved. Luckily, with the increase in the celiac community, restaurants and food companies have created gluten-free menus and food products. Here’s a list of great, celiac-friendly foods:
Fruit + veggies
Potatoes
Rice
