Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Local gem Siham Nuseibeh’s revolutionary guilt-free bakes from her delivery concept wholehearted baked by siham guarantees butter, wheat and refined sugar free delicious dessert options without obsessing over the caloric intake. Where does one come up with such a brilliant concept? Integrity, intelligence, and inspiration – three words (well, two adjectives and a verb) that sum up Siham (or Suma, as she’s known to her close friends and family members) perfectly.
Siham’s vision of sugar and additive free yet “fun” baked goods are created with passion and consideration, mimicking their sinful forefathers perfectly. These delicacies are sure to take our food-loving nation by storm, and Siham is determined to keep Kuwait eating healthy, by replacing their everyday sugary and processed snack-attacks with wholesome options.
The fun-loving baker has educated herself with basic “common sense” facts about the food industry, managing to recreate some of her favorite goodies without compromising on flavor. Notable mentions are her out-of-this-world Ya Salam brownies – chunky, fudgy, and the perfect indulgence that will satisfy even the pickiest of sweet teeth – and her filled with goodness cookies, which are believe it or not, the best way to start your morning, with their protein packed oat shell, crammed with pure and organic chocolate chunks. And what’s even more amazing about wholehearted is that most of its products are Paleo and vegan friendly.
“I like to remind people that they don’t have to eat things that are bad for them to satisfy their cravings. Food can be fun and healthy!” Oh we know, Suma – and that’s why we’re excited to place our next order! But first, Truth or Dare.
