If your diet is sugar-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, egg-free or casein free, it doesn’t have to be fun-free, too. Babycakes NYC is a kosher, vegan bakery that caters to many dietary needs and lifestyles at its location in the Big Apple as well as a second outpost in LA. From cupcakes, cookies and cakes to frosting shots, cupcake tops and sugar buns, you would think that a place like this would be a dietitian’s worst nightmare.
Actually, it’s quite the opposite. Ashley Koff, a registered dietitian, has recently added the baked-good mecca to her list of approved products on her Ashley Koff Approved list. Ashley has a balanced, realistic approach to nutrition and encourages her clients to make healthful choices on a daily basis to maintain good overall energy and health.
To celebrate the 2 year anniversary of the Natural Health Newsletter we are giving away a signed copy of the just released Babycakes cookbook.
Babycakes is a famous New York City bakery that makes baked goods using alternative and healthy ingredients while keeping all the yummy taste you would expect from a cupcake, chocolate chip cookie or even banana chip loaf.
Just because you’re vegan, have food allergies or prefer to watch what you eat does not mean you have to bid farewell to delectable sweets and indulgent treats. Not if Erin McKenna, the founder of Babycakes Bakery in New York City, has anything to say about it. Her bakery offers vegan and gluten-free desserts that are totally craveworthy. Hollywood stars are lusting after the 50 calorie cupcakes that made her famous, and you can hear testimonials from the likes of Zooey Deschanel and Mary-Louise Parker in her upcoming cookbook, Babycakes. The book features her recipes for vegan and sugar- and gluten-free recipes. I caught-up with Erin at her famous NYC bakery, where Erin reveals “I wanted people to be eating as healthfully as they possibly could.”
