If y’all have been following us for a little while now, you know how much we love a healthy treat. Over the weekend we headed to Norwalk Connecticut for a little girls trip. Every time we go out of town we love to explore and find new shops that are health conscious – and Norwalk did not disappoint!
We cannot say enough nice things about our trip to Izzi B’s Allergen-Free Bakery. It is a wholesale bakery – but they do fill individual pre-orders by appointment daily. Pam, owner of Izzy B’s was nice enough to give us a tour of her bakery and show us the ins and outs of running a bakery.
A little backstory: Pam’s daughter, Izzy, had a dairy allergy when she was a little girl. Pam did not want her to miss out on eating treats and so she decided to concoct products that are free of gluten, wheat, soy, dairy, eggs, all nuts and casein. There are no preservatives, no trans-fats, no refined sugar and cholesterol free. All ingredients are either all-natural, organic or Fair Trade.
Knowing what we are putting into our bodies is very important to us – especially when it comes to the little ones – Gianni and Luca. We are so thankful for people like Pam who take the time to go the extra mile to make sure our treats are healthy and safe.
Pam and her team were so kind for opening their business to us. They let the boys run around and play with some machinery, we sampled some delicious treats and we saw how she makes her ingredients from fresh fruit and how she even makes her own sprinkles! We were lucky enough to bring an assortment of cookies and donuts back to our hotel to splurge on over the weekend!
If you are ever in Norwalk, make sure to check out Izzy B’s Allergen-Free Bakery for all your favorite healthy treats. Tell Pam we sent you!
