How about: Thank you so very much for the book and I thought you'd like to know that I shared the sweet treats with my co-workers/girl scouts/random strangers/the homeless and they were SUPER appreciative, so thank you for that as I'm now everyone's favourite person.

Say thank you to mom and donate to others or bring to work. I know you don't want to spread what you perceive as poison but honestly, people eat worse in their daily life than a bar of fun-sized Snickers.
Thank your coworker for the donuts. Be gracious, don't eat them. If asked, say you are under doctors orders to watch your insulin.

Yeah- we had a client bring expensive pastries in and he went around and offered to everyone and made a big deal of it. I just said no thank you, and when pressed, mentioned gluten makes me very ill.
Your mom probably just enjoys sending you stuff and unless she is struggling for money, I'd just say thanks, mention you gaveit to some happy girl scouts and move on.
I would bring the unwanted sweets to work and leave it in the break room with a note: EAT ME. Or I'd bring it to the next potluck I go to. I guess having a non-primal boyfriend also comes in handy for these sorts of things. Our neighbor owns a bakery so he often brings by delicious treats. My boyfriend eats them all.

Halloween is coming - do you get trick-or-treaters? If you give them the snickers you have, then you need not buy another treat and put more money into the junk food companies. I think Mom sending Snickers is about her need to give you some warm fuzzies in a way SHE understands. Have you ever heard of the five love languages?
Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
