  • Lucy’s Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

    Posted in Uncategorized by Lucy

    Breast Cancer Awareness Box FinalLucy’s is very proud to support the American Cancer Society* and its efforts to promote breast cancer awareness. This fall for a limited time in stores throughout the U.S., Lucy’s will be offering our Chocolate Chip cookies in a special breast cancer awareness package.

    As part of this awareness program, Lucy’s is helping to support the American Cancer Society’s fight against breast cancer with a $50,000 contribution this year. In addition, Lucy’s will be posting information about the Society and breast cancer on our website, blog, and Facebook page.

    Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the U.S., other than skin cancer, and it is the second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer. Prevention, early detection, treatment, research, and support are all key factors when it comes to breast cancer. Being in the know and having the appropriate support really makes all the difference!

    For more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been leading the way to transform cancer from deadly to preventable. Specifically, the Society is fighting to end breast cancer by:

    Gluten free foodsI’ve always loved good food, and I believe that great nutrition can also be very decadent and indulgent. With that as a backdrop, Lucy’s grew out of my family’s experience with food allergies. One of the main goals of my food allergy friendly, vegan, gluten free snacks has been to make life “normal” for people with special diets. Tasty food, easy to find, enjoyed by all.

    Here at Lucy’s we offer a variety of gluten free cookies. (Our chocolate cookies are a must try!) Compared with 2006, when our products first hit the shelves, the food choices in grocery stores and markets have ballooned—and many are simply excellent! I’m amazed at the number and quality of gluten free foods and other special items available now. I hope you’ve tried Lucy’s treats; our allergy-friendly, vegan cookies are available in 11 different flavors and several package sizes. Click here for a listing.

  • Gluten Free Cookies–Do we really need them?

    Posted in Products by Lucy

    gluten free cookiesKenneth Chang’s article “Gluten Free, Whether You Need It or Not” in the New York Times on February 4, 2013 raises a couple of excellent points. People need more information about celiac disease. And, a gluten free diet is not “new”–in fact, wheat is a relatively new food that the human body often does not tolerate.

    So whether you need them or not, when you’re looking for healthy cookies and treats, gluten free cookies might be the answer. Remember, gluten free is really not new, and Lucy’s are vegan cookies, too! When I developed the flour blend I use in Lucy’s gluten free cookies, I got just the right combination so my treats would have a taste and texture very similar to the wheat-based items that most people are accustomed to eating. This makes the transition to gluten free foods more subtle and a lot easier.

    It’s all about taste and texture, really. When it comes to a cookie or a cake, I’m like most people. Why eat it if it’s not yummy and delightful? Gluten free foods and gluten free snacks are still food—and that’s important to remember.
