OUR STORY

our story pic

A West Coast environmentalist and a Midwest gardener walk into a nutrition forum…

…and no joke: they discover that both of them, despite their active, healthy lifestyles, have high blood sugar. This starts a spirited discussion about what they can and can’t eat and why, and how few options for convenient, on-the-go energy there are for people like them. Eventually, they decide to put their heads together and create a truly different, truly nourishing bar.
