Simply Sharon’s vegan, gluten-free cookie review and give-away.
Loren Pulitzer is a Vegan Dessert Chef from the Miami Florida area and she makes a line of Vegan, Gluten-Free & Delicious Cookies. Her cookies are homemade with organic, vegan & gluten-free ingredients and wrapped in biodegradable & compostable packaging. No preservatives! Hooray!!
I have tried all three flavors; almond, cashew, and pistachio, and they are equally delicious. I love that they are made with organic ingredients, sweetened only with organic maple syrup, and have no ingredients that I can’t pronounce or don’t have a clue what it is or where it came from. These cookies are just perfect for an afternoon treat with some green tea, in the morning with some organic fair-trade coffee, in school lunches for the kids, or any time really.
Loren’s line of cookies are named after her mother Sharon, who passed away from Lupus complications when Loren was only 7 years old. At the age of 17 Loren was also diagnosed with Lupus and thus began her search for natural ways to treat her disease. Following a plant-based diet was one of the best ways to control her Lupus but finding baked items that were vegan, gluten-free, and good tasting was difficult so she began to create her own.
You can purchase the cookies online at www.simply-sharons.com and they are also available in stores around Florida including in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Key West, Ormond Beach, and Coral Gables, as well as in Ohio in Bexley and Columbus. Check out her web site for more details on which stores in these locations are carrying her cookies.
Loren is working hard to get her cookies into more stores so many individuals who are health conscious but still want a tasty treat will have access to them.
She also has another company, Meals That Heal www.mealsthatheal.net, which offers a variety of services, ranging from cooking classes to catering to personal chef services. She is a busy little bee :)
Loren has gone to school for both baking and hotel management. She has worked in bakeries and the pastry industry, for contract food service, and for Whole Markets in the past. She is knowledgeable, personable, and most importantly has a passion to help herself and others heal through food.
