“I love a good snack, especially something sweet,” says Kristin Stangl, Associate Food Editor. But she also tries to limit her carb and sugar intake, especially during the week. Enter the low-carb, high-protein brownies from Eat Me Guilt Free. Registered Nurse and Certified Sports Nutritionist Cristie Besu founded the company in response to her clients’ late-night sweets cravings.
Today, Eat Me Guilt Free comprises a team of highly skilled bakers that make everything from the decadent brownies that are Kristin’s go-to daily afternoon treat—which come in flavors like cotton candy, lavender blondie, and gingerbread—to protein bread and protein tortillas. Plus, everything is made from simple ingredients.
“I’ve been a monthly subscriber for nearly a year now,” adds Kristin, who is a huge fan of the original chocolate flavor but also gets the flavor of the month. But what excites her even more is that founder Besu is also launching a Women Entrepreneur Grant to help usher in the next wave of woman-owned businesses and to pay her knowledge forward.
