Nature’s Path: Delivering the goods (Review & Giveaway)

A few months ago a delicious local product made it onto my “Favorite Things” list.   One of the staples in our pantry is the Gorilla Munch cereal by Envirokids.  It’s a slightly sweetened crunchy corn cereal that bears the distinction of having only three {3!} ingredients.  And, it’s made in Blaine, Washington – like THE Blaine that is only 10 minutes from my house!

Gorilla Munch isn’t the only noteworthy product coming out of this locally based company.  Envirokids products fall under the umbrella of Nature’s Path and their cereals, snacks and breakfast eats can be found in every grocery store in the county.  Over the past month we have had the pleasure and downright good fortune to try a variety of Nature’s Path breakfast products ranging from cereal to hot oatmeal to pack-and-go granola bars.  Weekday breakfasts in our house seem to be a crazy commotion of commiserating an alarm clock that didn’t go off, juggling a toddler who would rather play with her clothes instead of wear them and a car that totally didn’t get packed up the night before.  If I have the option to grab-and-go a healthy, organic snack, my morning starts off on a bit better foot.

CRUNCHY VANILLA SUNRISE Breakfast Cereal

OMG!  The first bite of this cereal was heaven and so was the last bite of the fourth bowl in one day.  Yum.  Yum.  Yum.  Think crunch corn balls (note Gorilla Munch),  fluffed rice puffs and granola all mixed together with a subtle vanilla nutty flavor.  Oh, and it’s gluten-free.  Simply D-E-V-I-N-E.

CRISPY RICE Snack Bars & LOTTA’ APRICOT Granola Bars

If the Ferry Family ever gets stranded in the car, we will have food rations for at least three weeks.  One of the miserable ways to turn a decent car trip into an ugly meltdown is a legitimately starving (or, at least she acts like we never feed her) toddler who cannot be swayed by anything other than FOOD!  The glove compartment is packed to the gills, the secret stash is under the storage compartment in the back seat and the console even has a nook for a small container of raisins.  The Crispy Rice Snack Bars and variety of Granola Bars fit into this scheme perfectly.  I want relatively healthy snack bars that are incredibly yummy and have ingredients I can pronounce and feel good about eating.  The variety of snack bars and granola bars is astounding and every single one of them is beyond scrumptious (even the hearty Sunny Hemp Granola Bar).

    What is my favorite healthy snack food? I absolutely love Wasa brand sourdough rye crackers. 5 ingredients, no fat, and only 35 calories per cracker (and they’re big!). The ingredients are whole grain rye flour, water, yeast, dry sourdough, & salt.

  2. Cathi Kosanovic says:

    Apricot granola bars..yum..sign me up. Next to peaches, apricots are my next favorite fruit.

  3. Maureen (suburban prep) says:
