Larabar Renola:

This is not your ordinary, boring old granola. This is granola, reinvented. Grain and gluten-free, Renola is a delicious combination of fruits, nuts and seeds. With flavors like cinnamon nut, berry or cocoa coconut Renola is a great addition to your yogurt, ice cream, pancakes or just straight out of the package. True to Larabar’s mission, there is nothing unfamiliar on their all natural, whole food list of ingredients like almonds, pecans, sunflower seeds, pepitas, cinnamon, coconut oil, and vanilla. A favorite among Paleo and Grain-Eaters alike, Renola is the perfect sweet crunch that you’ve been missing.

Bobo's Oat Bars:

Yum. Baked fresh, Bobo’s Oat Bars are non-GMO, wheat free and vegan. They are nutritionally dense with a great blend of ingredients. Each and every bite is chock full of rolled oat-y goodness. You can taste the natural ingredients in these bars. They’re not hard packed, they are light and crumble really nicely. When you eat them, it’s easy to imagine pulling them straight out of the oven.

The flavors are very subtle, and Bobo’s seems to let the oats shine, rather than overpowering them with lots of extra ingredients. Luckily for them the oats are great-tasting, and baked to perfection. We like these bars for a grab-and-go breakfast, or a midday snack. Because they’re calorie-dense they provide great lasting energy during long or all-day events.

Epic Bites:

EPIC Bites are the next-level jerky that you didn’t even know you were missing. Created by combining whole animal muscle meat with flavor-forward spice combinations, the soft, pillow-y strips of meat are insanely satisfying. The high-quality meat is mixed with superfood seeds and fruit for. These savory bite-sized energy bombs are a perfect option for those looking for delicious and nutritious protein on the go. EPIC Bites are rich in protein, low in sugar, gluten-free, grain-free, and absent of both soy and dairy. Bison, Beef, Bacon, and Chicken, we can hardly pick a favorite. You might be skeptical, but these morsels do NOT disappoint!

All Good Provisions Nuts:

Nuts are a great source of nutrients.  They’re rich in energy, protein, packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and much discussed omega-3 fatty acids. All Good Provisions sources their nuts to ensure they are all grown organically on small farms. Their Pistachios, Almonds, Cashews,  and more come perfectly roasted or salted and are a fun nutritious healthy snack that  is guaranteed to satisfy your inner nut.
