Why We Picked Good Dee’s
- Amazing founder we can get behind
- Amazing products we eat all the time!
Deana Karim, founder of Good Dee’s, is an inspiring person and committed entrepreneur who has made such a positive impact on the low-carb community (in so many countries, but especially here in Canada too). During the early days of Switch, she attended our meetups in Toronto and helped launch our bake-off events. She cares about our Customer Friends and it shows!
As the market for low-carb baking mixes grows, none come close to the ease and taste you get from Good Dee’s. Developing and testing every recipe herself, Deana knows her mixes inside out to make sure our Customer Friends are getting quality ingredients and a delectable finished product.
What is it?
Good Dee’s baking mixes are a quick way to prepare your favourite baked goods without sacrificing taste or health. All Good Dee’s products are gluten-free, sugar-free, soy-free, and wheat-free! They offer everything from cookies, brownies, to pancakes and cornbread, with each mix requiring about 2-3 simple ingredients, only 1 bowl, and just a few minutes to spare before you can dig in!
Good Dee’s also recently launched Vanilla and Chocolate Just Add Water Frostings (keeping on brand with something tasty, yet easy to make!) and fun sugar-free sprinkles that come in Midnight Moon (cocoa flavoured) and Rainbow!
What makes Good Dee’s special?
Good Dee’s is committed to making mixes that are not only easy, but taste, look, and smell as close to its higher carb counterpart. Using only the best ingredients, the mixes are made with either almond flour, sunflower seed flour, watermelon seed flour, or peanut flour. Also, all of the mixes are 100% maltitol free! The sweeteners they use are either non-GMO erythritol, stevia, allulose, or monk fruit.
Behind the Company
After her first son was born, Deana experienced changes in her body and metabolism that left her feeling less than optimal in her health. She discovered, too, that sugar was a trigger for her, with diabetes running in her family. These changes catapulted her decision to follow a low-carb, high-fat lifestyle. She knew she didn’t want to approach it like a “diet” - with a restrictive mindset that lead to cycles of on-and-off dieting. Thus, the seed was planted to start a company that had the same mission - to have healthier and sustainable relationships with food, and show anyone and everyone the endless possibilities of delicious indulgence even with dietary or lifestyle restrictions.
Good Dee’s was naturally the next step, especially watching her father start and run a successful business. With her savings of $5,000 while working two jobs to support her family, Deana took on the challenge of creating the best sugar-free and low-carb chocolate chip cookies, experimenting with various low-carb flours and sugar-free sweeteners. After tons of trial and error, samplings with family and friends of all different diets and lifestyles, she perfected what would eventually be Good Dee’s first mix: Chocolate Chip Cookie.
Deana’s mixes represent her creative efforts to make this lifestyle change enjoyable and tasty; she wanted to make her products accessible to more people and promote a healthier relationship with food through her mixes.
Who should use Good Dee’s?
Good Dee’s products are great for… absolutely anyone and everyone!
All because of Deana’s drive and creativity, the mixes really do taste just as good (and maybe even better because of the simple ingredients) as their traditional baked good counterparts. She’s made sugar-free baking, keto baking, and diabetic-friendly baking so accessible. Plus, if you’re feeling a snack attack late at night, or while you’re feeling lazy, this is the perfect quick and easy keto snack to bake.
It's best to give you Deana’s words here: “I want Good Dee’s to be a name in your house. A brand your children with food allergies can call their own, your family members with diabetes can enjoy during special occasions and give those who just want to try a new lifestyle a healthy start. Good food, good company, and a good start to a better lifestyle.”
Good Dee’s baking mixes is one of the most innovative products on the market. The flavour, texture, smell, everything about these sugar-free and low-carb baked goods will tingle your senses! Deana is redefining what body autonomy and dietary freedom looks like with having your (healthy, keto) cake and eating it, too!
