When I was a kid, the smell of blueberry cake was enough for me to go carb-crazy. Every summer, fresh blueberries picked from the garden were coated in loads of sugar and transformed into cakes, pies, and muffins. But, it's the 21st century and we know better. We know all about nushtrition.... and Nush is here to stop the sugar-and- carb roller coaster—because roller coasters are meant for amusement parks, not your diet!
So, at Barefoot Provisions, we believe you CAN have your cake and eat it too, especially with the Nush's latest offering, Blueberry Cake!
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Crack open the wrapper and BAM, the sight and smell of real blueberries. If that isn't enough to make it a one-bite wonder, you'll just have to enjoy this perfectly portioned snack. Made with organic flax and organic coconut oil, this Blueberry Cake packs just 3 grams of net carbs and 1 gram of sugar. Pair that with 5 grams of protein, and it's a berry good time.
Nush is a crossover between a cake and a bar. So, it's a bake! Or, is it a car? We support whatever word you choose to describe it, as long as you love 'em just as much as we do!
Getting Wrapped up in the Facts
"it's breakfast on the go, it's a great little snack, it's maybe even dessert, but it's not sugar."
Here are the amazing ingredients in this Blueberry Cake
Flax seeds got it going on. Argued as one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet, flax seeds may reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes. Loaded with Omega-3 essential fatty acids, better known as the good kind of fat, you'll feel fuller, longer. The icing on the cake (no pun intended)? Flax seeds are full of fiber, both soluble and insoluble. That makes us want to go... enjoy another cake!
ORGANIC COCONUT OIL
Coconut oil is on-trend. Seen everywhere from body butters to coffee creamers, coconut oil is the latest and greatest superfood. Coconut oil helps raise the good HDL cholesterol in your blood, which reduces your risk for heart disease.
We've heard it before, but we'll hear it again: blueberries are powerful antioxidants. Not only can they help to lower blood pressure, blueberries are also excellent for your skin and bone health. Talk about win-win-win!

It's simple: peel back the wrapper, unload the Nush from its tray and NOSH!

About NUSH, in their own words
"Muffy Mead-Ferro knew her whole family would be healthier if they ate less sugar and fewer carbs. But as the primary grocery shopper, it was hard to find prepared foods that weren't full of sugar and carbs. And let's face it, we need prepared foods to live this nutty life we live. We're on the run sometimes! Especially in the morning, right? So she started baking. Tasting. Researching. And baking some more. Eventually what came out of the oven was a new company: nush."
Muffy and her partner Dave have paved the way for all of us to enjoy just a little more cake (or maybe a lot—it's damn good!).
