Of course they continue to stock favorites like cupcakes, cheesecakes, dessert bars, cookies, crackers, granolas, tortillas, pizza crusts, frozen pizzas, naan, and more.
There will also be a selection of items from other local producers like Rude Brew Kombucha, Ona Foods, Cadence Cold Brew, RPs pasta, Yum Butter, Tabal Chocolate, and Supercharge Foods.

I’m pleased to announce the publication of my new handbook for restaurants who want to become more paleo friendly. Paleo for Restaurants (Don’t lose customers as they reject grains and other neolithic foods) shares the perspective of frustrated paleo diners everywhere, and offers a range of actionable strategies for accommodating various types of ancestral eaters. Paleo cooking can be simple enough for a caveman, once you correct a few deal-breakers, and restaurateurs who understand this stand to benefit from new trends while others miss out. Includes menu ideas, specialty ingredients you should know about, and viewpoints from a variety of experts. Available now in both print and e-book editions.

I’m excited to announce that Madison will soon have it’s first grain-free, dairy-free bakery. Beginning September 7th, you’ll be able to pre-order cupcakes and other treats that are not only gluten free but also free of grains, dairy (except butter), soy, refined sugar, and utilizing only healthier fats like coconut oil and grass-fed butter. The initial menu of cookies, cupcakes, muffins, crackers, confections and granolas can be viewed at www.paleomamabakery.com. Many ingredients are locally sourced, such as honey from Gentle Breeze in Mt. Horeb and tart cherries from Cherryland’s Best in Door County. No retail store is planned at this time, though sales through other local outlets are being explored. (Ask your favorite spot to bring them in!)
I recently had a chance to taste-test several of the initial products (Thanks, Belle!) and was quite impressed with the quality. My family (wife and two daughters, none of whom are paleo at this time) helped me sample the vanilla salted-caramel cupcakes (pictured), chocolate chip cookies, and raw cookie dough. We agreed all were delicious and perfectly executed. Some were pleasantly surprised by the moist texture of the cupcake compared to some of the other grain-free treats we’ve tried.
As expected, prices are higher than similarly modest portions of mainstream baked goods. Also, despite the extreme attention to using the healthiest possible ingredients, these are definitely treats meant for occasional indulgence, and not something I’d make a frequent part of my diet. (I’d love to see the eventual addition of something a tad more substantial and nutrient dense, perhaps a less-sweet cookie or bar based on the cranberry walnut granola– or maybe some grass-fed gelatin gummy snacks.) Having said that, Paleo Mama’s treats are among the top tier of those I’ve tried, and I would definitely consider buying them, especially if offered somewhere I typically shop or dine. Keep them in mind next time you’re planning a party or event!
