I find that more and more often I ignore the snack aisle when I go shopping at most grocery stores. Popular snacks have so much junk in them that I don’t even want to tempt myself or my kids. At least there are healthy snacks at my local health food stores. Unfortunately the health food stores are not close enough for my daily/weekly visits, so I stock up on healthy snacks when I visit them.
One health food store carries Go Raw products! I was looking for a healthy cracker/nut to add to my salads to add a crunch. I came across Go Raw’sSpicy Flax Snax. I like that the ingredient list is simple and short: Sprouted Organic Flax Seeds, Sprouted Organic Sunflower Seeds, Sprouted Organic Sesame Seeds, Organic Jalapeno, Organic Cilantro, Organic Lime Juice, Organic Spices, and Celtic Sea Salt. I broke up the crackers and added it to my Kale Salad. They are pretty tasty on their own as well.
Go Raw is dedicated to providing healthy snacks, both sweet and savory. Every snack is made with sprouted seeds and is considered to be “live” because, technically, if you planted it, something would grow! All Go Raw products are 100% ORGANIC Certification, Vegan, Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Nut Free (Nuts don’t sprout!), and Kosher. They have our own Raw- Vegan, gluten-free, wheat free, nut free and dairy free food manufacturing facility located in Mountain View, CA. They do not co-pack and their facility is strictly for Go Raw use only.
It starts with the seeds – finding the best, local when available – testing and inspecting – soaking in filtered water – rinsing and cleaning – then sprouting for up to four hours. The sprouts are then mixed with the highest quality raw, organic ingredients we can find. We hand spread the mixture onto trays and then load them into our custom built dehydrators where they’ll sit for up to two days at an average temperature of 98 degrees. The finished product is then packaged in house on our dedicated equipment then stored and shipped in our facility.
Go Raw has a variety of snacks including bars, flax snax, super chips/cookies, granola, sprouts and chocolate.
The bars are pretty tasty and come in a variety of flavors. The chocolate is also raw…and amazing! It is soft and the minty taste reminds me of a classic chocolate mint. The cookies are also tasty. My favorite is the lemon and I think my husband like the ginger snaps. Each product is made with minimal ingredients and you can see them all listed on their website. Lastly I was sent some granola and sprouted pumpkin seeds. Both make great snacks in-between meals.
Next time you visit your local health food store or grocery store, check to see if they have any Go Raw products! Give them a try and treat yourself to an organic healthy snack!
