National Kolache Day starts right here in Houston.

15 Nutritionist Created Recipes + a meal plan and grocery list to help you with blood sugar balance

The Diabestie Recipe Club is a monthly recipe guide for people with diabetes,

We set you up with a grocery list, meal plan, and 15 blood-sugar friendly recipes to make your life a little easier, PLUS access to hundreds of recipes, books and diabetes self-management coaching immediately when you join.


National Kolache Day will celebrate this often-overlooked pastry on March 1, but more importantly, it will pay homage to the Czech immigrants that introduced the United States to the pastry. Texans were introduced to the kolache when tens of thousands of Czech immigrants came through the port of Galveston in the 1850s through the early 1900s.

“Once I realized that National Kolache Day didn’t yet exist, I wanted my city, Houston, to be the city to proclaim the holiday because of the large Czech community and diversity in Texas” said Koala Kolache owner Vatsana Souvannavong, a.k.a. “Crazy Kolache Lady,” a nickname given to her by her customers because of her crazy kolache creations.  “This is for all Texans, all kolache shops in Texas and all over the country. Kolaches have always been the underdog in the pastry world, and National Kolache Day will pave the way for this overlooked pastry to gain its much-deserved recognition.”

I’m no stranger to Kolaches – and there are some great places around Houston to get them. Here are a few that I recommend.

No matter where you go, Houston has great Kolaches, and some perfect places to celebrate National Kolache Day. Let me know where you’re celebrating in your city!

Koala Kolache
On National Kolache Day, March 1, Koala Kolache will also be giving away a year of free kolaches to one lucky Instagram fan. All fans need to do to participate is post a picture showcasing how they’re celebrating National KolacheDay, tag @KoalaKolache and use the hashtag: #NationalKolacheDay. Also, all guests will receive one free kolache per customer, while supplies last. All kolache shops are encouraged to list their National Kolache Day specials onwww.NationalKolacheDay.com. Plus, their kolaches are pretty unique and delicious!

Kings Beerhaus Kolache Pop-Up
King’s has a great pop-up that sells out fast! Their kolaches are extremely authentic and made with fresh meats, and jams. Head to Pearland, and get in line early so you’re not left in the dust without kolaches.

Cristys Kolaches & Donuts
Cristys is one of my favorite donut spots, and of course, they do a great Kolache. Sitting at the corner of West Gray and Montrose, this spot looks super modest, but they make amazing food.

The Original Kolache Shoppe
The Original Kolache Shoppe is a little classic, hidden gem. Check them out for some surprising flavors, and a nice stopping point on the way to Galveston.
