Sometimes there’s nothing quite like a good paleo cookie with a cup of tea! Unless you are a talented baker, making paleo-friendly treats free from grains can be time-consuming; not to mention hard to get a good result that resembles a grain-laden cousin.
Chris Feuille, founder of WB Kitchen, had some serious health issues which led him to having to make all of his own food from scratch. There was nothing on the market that suited his food restrictions and allergies. So indulging in store bought food – and sadly any sweet treats – was a luxury that Chris could never have.
Life was not very gourmet for Chris! So he started to make cookies, muffins and nut bars and his friends and family loved them so much her started selling them. Thus WB Kitchen was born!
The name ‘WB Kitchen’ actually came from a dream Chris had about his wife after their first encounter. A woman in all white fur pulled him out of a frozen river, took him back to a village and warmed him up and fed him. She then introduced Chris to the chief of the tribe. They were having some big celebration and he introduced Chris to his daughter, they danced all night and it turned out the chief’s daughter was Chris’s wife! Chris later told some friends about the dream and they were told the woman in white fur represented the white buffalo woman. So Chris has held that old Native American tale ‘pretty darn close’ ever since (WB = White Buffalo).
WB Kitchen have been in business since 2012 and their cookies can be found at Whole Foods Market in the Rocky Mountain region, Natural Grocers and many local food co-ops and health food stores all over the States.
In Australia, they’re available via the Good Fuel Co. website at www.goodfuel.co and they are working on making them available through health food stores.
What do people love about the cookies?
People love the simple ingredients and really enjoy the fact that WB Kitchen uses honey as a sweetener and not any refined sugars such as Agave or cane sugar.
Chris really wanted the convenience of packaged food because life was getting complicated and finding time to make all of their food was unreasonable.
WB Kitchen is about living a healthy lifestyle and making conscious decisions about our diet, health, and spirituality. WB Kitchen doesn’t prescribe specific diets and or modes of thinking about the universe/ human experience and simply encourages personal growth and exploration (being willing to change or try new things no matter how uncomfortable they may seem is a good start!) Good Fuel Co. have partnered with WB Kitchen to bring these cookies to Australia and New Zealand because they share similar values when it comes to food and personal growth
