My name is Tamara Linkowski. I never get full. I am always hungry. These cakes are the only things that satisfy me to the point where I get full now. Aside from the health benefits, the next best thing is that you can eat and be full with such few calories and so many healthy ingredients. Not only are they nutritious, but they also can be a meal replacement. The money you spend here should be considered 'grocery money'. With such few calories and so full of protein and fiber, you will have energy you didn't know can exist in your body. These cakes and bakes fit virtually any lifestyle and are specifically made for Paleo diets, Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle, Atkins Low Carb Diets, WeightWatchers diets, they are diabetic friendly and helped in the healing process of my heart disease. They also aid in extreme weight loss. Please feel welcome to post results and/or any comments.
God birthed this business while I was caring for my 95 year old grandma, but He didn't do it only for us. I want to share my health history before I go any further. Please read this next verse.
Asa ended up dying because of this. God lived this verse out in my life. I'm not saying 'don't go to the doctor' but too many times we turn to them rather than the Lord. When is the last time we prayed first when we were sick rather than rushing to the doctor? I am guilty guilty guilty, but I have since repented.
My health journey came after 9 different medications stopped working for treating both my heart failure and being over 200 lbs with my last pregnancy. After giving birth, I was not able to get down past 186. My ejection fraction at my worst was recorded at 30% (normal is 60% to 70%). I was given a death sentence. I was told by 5 doctors to abort my youngest child because I would not survive my pregnancy (due to my heart failure); but God, who is RICH in mercy, not only healed me but made me skinnier than I have ever been in my life! And, I have energy that I've never had before. Even in 7th grade I was never a size 4, but today I am, and that's after 11 pregnancies and 9 c-sections and all my health problems many of which I haven't mentioned. I’ve had Keritosis for my entire life. My skin has never looked as good as it does today. I have not changed how much I eat- only what I eat. Today, I take no medications, I have a 66% ejection fraction, and unbelievable health and energy. In fact, my last pregnancy was by best pregnancy; according to my doctor, I was 12 pounds lighter in my 11th pregnancy than I was in my first pregnancy. I Thank God for what He has allowed me to go through or these cakes would not exist today. I also Thank God I was never a 'thin' person. If I was, I would think it may have been my 'genes'.
Between what I have learned through WeightWatchers, Trim Healthy Mama, and my own research in heart failure/disease and cancer, God has enabled me to put together some cakes of which no other nutrition label can compare. My goal is to help others on their spiritual journey which should include being healthy because God only gives us 1 body. Just as I cannot pray for God to heal my marriage while I am looking at pornography, I too cannot ask God to heal my body when I am stuffing it with garbage everyday; God wants you to eat healthy. If we are sick, let’s be sick because God has allowed it (like Paul and Timothy) and not because we did it to ourselves by how poorly we manage what we put in our mouths.
I have learned that God must first break us. Once He breaks us, He uses us to minister to others; and after He uses us, He then allows us to be 'afflicted' for His Name's sake. I've experienced all 3. This is true of how God gave me this ministry, and it is true today through a severe trial He has allowed me to go through.
Jesus is worthy whether His will is for us to live for Him or die for Him; and I’ve never learned this truth more fully than I have in losing my beautiful second daughter, Corinn.
On February 13th, 2019, I woke up to my worst nightmare- a police officer knocking at my door to tell me that Corinn had gotten in a severe car crash only a couple miles from home. From that moment on, God began a journey to teach me lessons that only suffering can teach in a way that I would never ever in my life ask to be done. There is so much to be said of what has happened since that day; so I encourage you, if you have around 20 minutes of your time free, please watch this video that a dear friend of ours, Evan Thompson from Sapphire 7 Studios, put together that covers both the tragedy and the beauty of the story.
Out of two tragedies in my life that either had me close to death or, to this day, brings me to bitter tears, God has used it all to do what He has given me the desire to do with all of my life- to give Him glory! I pray that God will use my testimony to get you to the point of complete surrender to Jesus and His will. If God chooses to give you more energy, I pray you will use it to spend time learning, meditating and living out His Word. Please pray for Jesus to help you and guide you in every area of your life beginning with the area of appetite. It is a bad testimony to the entire world when we as His Children cannot control what we put in our mouths and our bodies reflect it. It is just as bad as not being able to control our eyes as it is to not control our own mouths. Pray for God to teach you what to eat, how to eat, how much your body needs, and to keep you motivated to exercise and live a healthy lifestyle for His Name's sake. I, too, will be praying for you as well.
