Let’s set the ‘way back’ machine for about 20 years ago. After hearing about some amazing results in body recomposition using high fat / low carb diets we decided to give it a try. It was a dark time for ketogenic dieters, however. After decades of being told that fats were evil, manufacturers had managed to find ways to replace them with processed ingredients and high glycemic sugars in almost every product you could pick up in your local mega mart. Even worse than that, you had federal nutritional guidelines, doctors and self proclaimed experts condemning you at every turn. It was enough to make someone give up on this whole crazy diet idea right there. And that might have been the case for us, if it wasn’t for one small (undeniable) detail… the diet worked.
So we pressed on and for more than 20 years we’ve been using the ketogenic diet as a tool to help achieve our fitness goals and stay healthy. Over those years we have discovered lots of delicious (and some not so delicious) recipes to keep things interesting. Although recently the number of low carb options you can find online and at your local store has gotten considerably better, it’s still tough to find ready to eat snack options that have good macros, are loaded with healthy fats and could satisfy a sweet fix. Looking through all of the available ingredients to fit those requirements, we kept coming back to one… and it was just nuts! ;)
As a healthy, low carb snack, you really can’t beat nuts. The squirrels and mother nature definitely had this figured out way before we did! Nutrient dense, full of healthy fats, vitamins and antioxidants… They’ve got more health benefits than you can shake a stick at (that is, of course, if you are in the habit of shaking sticks at things).
We have been making these nuts for ourselves for quite some time. We love them, our friends and family love them, and we hope that you do too! A lot of trial and error over the years has led us to the product we have now. We are committed to providing the best low carb nut based snack foods available on market. In fact, we’re nuts about it!
