Legit Bread Company

Our mission is to provide grain free baked goods that do not compromise taste or texture. 

Legit Bread was developed by Jennifer Robins, who after giving up gluten and then grain, realized how inauthentic paleo and allergen friendly bread options were. She locked herself in her kitchen, refusing to come out until the loaf was legit. Shared as a recipe on her blog, and in one of her cookbooks, she realized her work wasn’t done until she could put her sought-after recipe straight into the hands of those who needed and adored it. Legit Bread Company, which is woman and veteran owned, slowly morphed from a dream to a real live creature.

Legit Bagel Mix

One pouch of Legit Bagel Mix will make 6 smaller sized bagels. No special pans or equipment is needed, but you will need a packet of yeast, maple syrup or honey, and water.

This is a traditional bagel making method – mix and shape by hand, then boil and bake. They are best eaten the day you make them or the next day.

Legit Pancake Mix

This Legit Pancake Mix is grain, gluten, dairy, soy, nut, and nightshade free! It makes up to 30 “silver dollar” sized pancakes, enough for a family. The mix can be split into 2, by halving the dry mix and also the wet ingredients.

Jennifer Robins, The Whole Foodist

In my 26th year of life, however, all of that changed.  A slow and steady downward decline into chronic illness had begun; which presented panic attacks, followed by autoimmune disease, a Lyme diagnosis, and finally an unrecoverable crash.  I have received over 20 different diagnoses from a variety of healthcare specialists. But ultimately, between food choices, pregnancies, and life stresses, my body finally gave up and stopped finding homeostasis.  Luckily, my spirit found strength where my body found weakness.  The past three years have been spent seeking, digging, praying, sorting, researching, crying, and nourishing my way back to stability.

Along the way my focus shifted onto the power of food and its ability to heal. I learned that the Standard American Diet has created problems, which reveal themselves in any number of symptoms ranging from autoimmune disease to blood sugar irregularities to high cholesterol to depression and anxiety.  In this discovery and quest for natural healing, I realized that if I wanted to heal, I would need to be the key player in my wellness. Even doctors with the best intentions could not care for me on a molecular level, only I could do that.

I started by transitioning from just gluten free (which I had been for years) to grain free. Then I removed dairy after that. Slowly but surely my food choices became cleaner and smarter. The cob webs started to lift and over the following months I became much less housebound and much more lifebound. The process has taken time and I have had to learn how to deal with life’s stresses much differently. I may always be a work in progress; but for now I have literally been brought back to life through nutrient dense foods. My goal is to share my story, share my journey, and share my recipes in hopes that others who are struggling may find life again as well.

On a lighter note, I never knew how to cook. I met my husband barely able to boil water and really did not learn how to cook from scratch (or whole foods) until after I became very ill. Family and friends can confirm that i was nothing short of a disaster in the kitchen! So to those of you who feel like it isn’t possible to teach an old dog new tricks, this old dog learned a few and it has made all the difference in the world!

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
