Rarely in life is there something that comes along that can flip your entire paradigm, changing your life so completely from energetic, mental, and physiological standpoints. You may know what I’m talking about if you’re on the same road. If you’re like many folks at the end of a long day, kicking back for a documentary is a welcome escape. Shortly after purchasing our commercial building in June of 2018, we were supremely open to whatever came next, having doubled our retail space after pushing for nearly five years. The documentary was “The Magic Pill”, and the resulting lifestyle change was the most profound since immigrating from Hawaii to Nova Scotia. What could be so earth shattering and trans formative that we had never noticed before… particularly about how we’d been eating for our entire lives up to that point? The answer is the Ketogenic, or Keto diet.
I guess you could call me one of the lucky ones in the realm of caloric intake, generally eating anything and everything I wanted with no ill effects, having always been actively in pursuit of various hard core endeavors such as big wave surfing, and more recently busting up asphalt with a pick axe on the old Horton high school grounds. However, after experiencing a few Nova Scotia winters, not to mention also now being over forty, a pattern of decreasing energy levels, increasing weight, and an over all slow sinking feeling began to emerge. Having been on the verge of surrender to the downward spiral, luckily something clicked, and we went cold turkey on the sugar and carbs. I experienced almost immediate results myself, along with my wife Ariell. At this point we can only describe benefits of eating Keto as mind blowing. It’s one thing to see it in a documentary, like diabetics getting off their insulin and other miraculous benefits, but we are now experiencing and hearing these things first hand from our community.
It’s not hard to see the impact, whether you look at the incredible before and after Keto pics on social media, or the amazing healing properties demonstrated in “The Magic Pill”. All signs are pointing to a revolution. Ariell and I didn’t need much time at all to take sides, quickly rallying to help spread the word and offer a full array of Keto products at our business. The farther along we get, the more things are validated, with our family doctor and others now touting the benefits of the Keto diet. After living the keto lifestyle ourselves for a while now, we look forward to sharing our newfound passion, but will also never lose sight of what got us this far. Our existing menu will not change, but we will certainly be adding some exciting new products.
One of the most exciting and impactful things we’ve been doing is setting up is an online Keto companion business, which very much echos the community goals and values at Edible Art. Because of the scale of the issues we’re all facing, we ultimately decided to align ourselves with a global network of distributors after meeting Nate and Anna Justice, who introduced us to some groundbreaking ketogenic products. We even integrated one of these products into our menu right away, as the main ingredient in our Bulletproof Coffee. Having now signed on as distributors ourselves, we are launching a full offering of products for home delivery! If you’ve already been enjoying our Bulletproof Coffee, now you can brew your own right at home by ordering here. Be advised, this stuff is powerful… we only use half a packet per serving, and suggest you do the same!
We hope the links below are helpful, and we encourage folks to get in touch with questions, feedback, or sharing your own transformational stories.
Thanks for taking part in our journey,
-Jesse & Ariell Vincent
