Sarah Kadison’s Keto Coffee Cake
Sarah is a mid-twenties girl living in the city of Boston who loves to create healthy, delicious dessert recipes. She’s living proof that a fit & healthy lifestyle can include eating dessert every single day.
Sarah always had a passion for baking a huge sweet tooth, but limited herself to special occasions because of the “unhealthy” nature of desserts.
In college, she developed a strong interest in working out and eating healthy. She still loved to bake, but recipes filled with refined white flour, sugar, and oils no longer fit with her lifestyle. She started the Instagram account @sarahsfitfood to share healthy recipes and workout tips, as well as to create a community of people with similar interests.
“After graduating in May 2015, I found out I needed to commit to a strictly gluten-free diet and could no longer use the recipes I had grown up baking. I started to experiment with healthy natural ingredients to make dessert recipes that are not only gluten-free, but also easy to make, refined sugar-free, allergen-friendly, vegan-friendly, as well as being lower in calories, carbs, and fat, and higher in protein.”
