Fit Donuts | Meridian, Idaho

A Selection of Donuts from "Fit Donuts"
Meridian, Idaho

I was a fully committed, high-carb, SoCal gal when I moved to Idaho. I immediately noticed how few donut shops there were. The ones I tried were average and I missed the specialty places I left behind. Although the donut landscape has greatly improved, my lifestyle has changed.

I discovered "Fit Donut" on Instagram. I had never imagined "fit" and "donut" being used side-by-side. I checked out their website and liked what I saw. So, I chose this sunny Saturday morning to drive over to Meridian, Idaho.

I was not expecting a perfect, low-carb food, but these donuts come pretty darn close! The owners emphasize "high protein, low fat, low carb, [and] low sugar", whereas LCHF majors on low-carb, high-fat, and moderate meat. Still, with only 3-9 carbs per donut, I can enjoy these as an occasional treat.

We cut the donuts into smaller pieces so that I could sample my 7 selections. While no substitute sweetener completely mimics table sugar, my sugar-eating husband and son approved of these donuts. As for me, I thought the sweetness was perfect and not overwhelming. 

Most of my readers live nowhere near Meridian, but I am listing what is shown on their site. This way you can compare the similarities.
