Green Heart Bakery Has Arrived
Alaine Shrewsbury, owner of Alaine’s Green Heart Bakery, has been keeping busy lately baking healthy cakes and treats for appreciative Tucsonans. Everything Alaine makes is vegan, organic, whole-grain and gluten-free. She uses no cane sugar, fat or oil. Every ingredient is healthy, for a finished product that is delicious, nutritious and non-fattening. Her biggest sellers are Chocolate Cherry Cake, Organic Brownies, Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins and Alaine’s Rainforest Cake.
Shrewsbury opened her first bakery, in Los Angeles, in 1993, where holistic doctors and trainers referred their patients and clients. The bakery supplied Whole Foods Market, restaurants and movie studios. For 13 years, she maintained a busy booth at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market, and was featured on the PBS show, California’s Gold.
Shrewsbury offers a variety of cakes, pies, “uncheesecakes,” muffins, cookies, brownies, tea breads and bars. Wedding cakes are decorated with fresh flowers. Each order can be customized to fit special dietary needs and/or restrictions, such as using silken tofu instead of butter.
Shrewsbury has worked with the Celiac Disease Foundation in Los Angeles and is working now with the Healthy You Network, promoting a plant-based diet. She will conduct a healthy cooking demo for the Foundation for Cardiovascular Health’s 12-week Heart Series program, as well as for Steve Liu’s Q-100 program later this year.
