YI NING’S PA­LEO TREATS

CLEO (Singapore) - - ADULTING -

I jumped on the low-fat-whole-grain band­wagon some time ago, but as a re­sult of that diet, I suf­fered from hor­monal im­bal­ances for two years. Af­ter plenty of doc­tor vis­its, I learnt to make sim­ple nu­tri­tional changes and my prob­lems were solved within a month. The more I read up on health and nutri­tion, the more the Pa­leo diet res­onated with me, and since I also love bak­ing and ex­per­i­ment­ing with new recipes, I de­cided to start Bak­en­ing. Ev­ery­thing in Bak­en­ing is Pa­leo and veg­e­tar­ian. They’re flour­less and glu­te­nand dairy-free. I don’t use grains, re­fined or ar­ti­fi­cial sug­ars, soy, colour­ings, ad­di­tives, gums or preser­va­tives in any­thing I bake. All my break­fast items such as muffins have no added sugar ei­ther, as I be­lieve that’s the right way to start your day. All my cook­ies and ce­re­als are also egg­less and ve­gan. Many of my cus­tomers have al­ler­gies or skin is­sues like eczema, but they have found my prod­ucts safe to eat. I’m hop­ing to ex­pand my team in the near fu­ture so I can fo­cus on the big­ger pic­ture and grow my busi­ness. I don’t have any­thing con­crete planned yet, but I’d love to see Bak­en­ing reach peo­ple liv­ing be­yond our shores. “I’m not that great at it, but I do a bit of dig­i­tal art and also graphic and web­site design. I started tin­ker­ing with web­sites when I was about 13 years old by us­ing free host­ing sites. I even coded from scratch!”
