York Stomping Grounds

Eating healthy is one of the best things you can do for yourself. You feel better and have more energy…what busy university student doesn’t want that? Of course with eating healthy it can be hard to satisfy your sweet cravings every once in a while. Which is why I was so excited when I discovered Sweets from the Earth at the York University Farmers Market.

This company makes a number of different prepackaged desserts, but without all of the chemicals and processing that is found in most junk food these days. They also cater to a number of different dietary restrictions that are common these days. Whether you are a vegan, allergic to nuts, have a gluten sensitivity or are lactose intolerant they can provide treats that won’t cause harm!

Before anyone goes crazy and decides to replace their healthy dinner with a box of their cookies, let me remind you that these products are a better alternative to the processed food that contains harmful ingredients, however they are still a treat! They are a healthy alternative but by no means are healthy to eat them in excess. They are perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth every now and then.

Double Chocolate Cookie. Mmmmm.

They make such a wide variety baked goods. Cakes, cookies, cupcakes, muffins and brownies just to name a few. I’ve tried their cookies, brownies and cakes and I enjoyed each one. You really can’t tell that they are missing ingredients that are common in the usual dessert recipes.

As I mentioned, Sweets from the Earth usually has a table at the Market in the TEL building here on campus. You can also find them at cafeterias all over campus, which means you can buy these products with your meal plan! Check out their website to learn more about them and their products. Can I just say that I am very disappointed that they didn’t have these products here when I had a meal plan?
