Looking Forward to 2017

A letter from the President and CEO of Swerve Sweetener

When one year comes to an end and another begins it always provides an opportunity for reflection. In the fast paced world we live in, I am often guilty of not taking time to appreciate the past and all that we have done over the last 15 years at Swerve. We were a bit before our time in talking about blood sugar and why stabilizing blood sugar is so incredibly important to all aspects of health. It’s why we created Swerve – as a tool in the toolbox for blood sugar control.

But here we are, now in 2017, and fortunately so many people are taking ownership of their health. Swerve is making its way into more and more kitchens across North America. Our gratitude to those who support our brand cannot be expressed in words; however, what we can do is make a promise to each of you – our team will continue to work hard for you – pouring our passion and tenacity into the Swerve brand that you have come to believe in and trust.

In addition to reflecting on the history of our company, the thing I am most excited about is our future. There is tremendous blue sky for our little company – and the main reason for that is the team that we have assembled. You would be hard pressed to find individuals as dedicated and hard working as our group. Just like any close family, we don’t always agree… we challenge ourselves and one another. Yet ultimately our goal is the same; providing the best possible sugar replacement we can, for you the customer that depends on us. The Swerve mantra is “constant improvement”. Our team lives by that creed every single day.

It’s one thing to know a brand… it’s another thing to know the people behind the brand. I want to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Swerve Team, the people responsible for that bag of Swerve sitting in your pantry (or refrigerator if you live in the humid South like us). Please always know the team is here for you – we learn the most from you, our fellow consumers of Swerve. We love hearing from you, the good and even the not-so-good… 24/7 you can reach us at sweetie@swervesweet.com.

Happy New Year, friends… our wish for you is much health and happiness in the upcoming year!

Sweetly,

Andress, CEO and President

Cranberry Cheesecake

cranberrycheesecakepie_web

Let’s consider the lowly cranberry for a moment, shall we. I say lowly for several reasons. For one, they grow on bushes low to the ground. They also grow really well in low-lying bogs or shallow standing water. They are extremely low in carbohydrate, with about only 12 grams per cup of berries. But unlike most berries, they are extremely tart and without any natural sweetness, so they aren’t many people’s first choice for healthy, low carb snacking.

But despite their “low” stature, they are perhaps one of the most beloved berries in North America. Because they ripen in the fall and are so closely associated with all things Thanksgiving, cranberries are near and dear to most Americans (and Canadians!) hearts. The appearance of fresh cranberries in grocery stores seems to signal the start of the comfort food season. Rich meals of turkey and stuffing shared with loved ones, and plenty of cranberry sauce on the side.

But cranberry sauce needn’t just be served with the main meal. Cranberries make for fabulous low carb desserts too. I for one try to find as many ways as possible to use cranberries during cranberry season. I like to work them into both sweet and savoury dishes. And for those folks who aren’t really fans of pecan or pumpkin pie (Gasp! Sacrilege!), this low carb cranberry cheesecake pie is just the thing. Shortbread cookie crust, creamy vanilla cheesecake, cranberry sauce swirl and crumb topping. It hits all the right notes for the holidays.

It’s also a great way to use up any sugar-free cranberry sauce that might be leftover once the feasting is done.

Pecan Pie Biscotti

I am a pecan pie fiend. An absolute aficionado, if you will. I’ve loved it since my first bite as a child. All that gooey, caramel-y, rich pecan flavor. Even not very good pecan pie was better than most desserts. I absolutely couldn’t pass it up, especially if it was topped with whipped cream or ice cream. Warm pecan pie straight from the oven? My idea of heaven. Of course, I pass up the stuff all the time now. Having ……[Continue Reading]
