We know that I have a little problem with granola, love-hate relationship really. I love how it tastes, but sometimes hate its nutrition. More like a candy bar in the sugar and fat realms if you're smelling what I'm steppin' in! Which irks me to say the least.
I also hate how much I love some of the 'big name' companies granola... like Special K, or Quaker - I just feel like they are so disconnected with the consumer, and I don't like that!
So what is all this ranting for? Well... I've found a granola company that cares. Cares about you, about me, about nutrition, about taste, about using whole foods, but most importantly - about hungry children around the world.
Enter: Impact Foods
Yes, these are the founders - and they created this amazing company that not only feeds hungry-granola-loving gals like me, but also helps fight the war against hunger worldwide, especially for children.
They're promis is simple. Buy one bag of granola-feed one child.
Amazing, no? I can see how God is working through them, their creativity, talent and drive to make a difference in this world! I am so impressed!
I got my box of samples and literally screamed with joy!
They have 3 flavors:
Maple Oat, Vanilla Almond and Blueberry Honey
Dug right on in!
This isn't the type of granola that is full of chunks, it has a smooth, even consistency but with add-ins like seeds and nuts, coconut and freeze dried berries!
I first tried the Maple Oat and immediately fell in love!
So delicious in a big bowl with milk... I may or
may not have had more than one serving...
But, then again, I'm not sorry At. All. It was delicious!
And the nutritional facts are pretty good overall.
1/3 cup has between 130 - 150 calories, 2g fiber and about 3g protein.
It was sweet, hearty, and had a texture that I don't even know how to describe! It was crunchy but literally fell apart in my mouth, so good.
Impact Foods - thank you for being such good people. Honestly, it is great to find a company that I can feel good about supporting, both in my heart and my mouth!
Luke 3:11, And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”
I pray God continues to work through you and through all of us, to fulfill His plans.
Now go get some Impact Granola people!!!
