We recently received a shipment of sample snack products from Two Moms in the Raw of Lafayette, Colorado. I am pleased to report that these organic products are quite healthy and satisfying. Wholesome raw ingredients and no preservatives — now that’s what I’m talking about!
Co-owner Shari Leidich explains how it all got started …
In 2004, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. After exploring all options, I found a natural approach to healing worked best for me. Food in its natural state without all the additives and pesticides is what the body needs to heal and feel good. As I continue on my personal journey to wellness I feel better each day and I know my diet has a lot to do with it. While exploring the raw lifestyle, I couldn’t find a tasty, satisfying treat to have on the run. After lots of experiments in the kitchen with other moms, I came up with these delicious Granolas and fantastic Sea Crackers. Pretty soon all of my friends and family were ordering more than I could afford to give away. As a result, I decided to start charging….and here we are today. From these wonderful beginnings we have benefited greatly and look forward to the future and sharing our Raw and Organic treats with you…the ones that we have already available and the many more we have yet to come up with.
The delicious Blueberry and Apple Granola chunks contains Millet, Buckwheat, Coconut, Flaxseed, Sunflower Seeds, Seasame Seeds, Pecans, Almonds, Pepitas, Apples, Agave, Cinnamon, Sea Salt and Blueberries. It does look a bit like bird seed, but the taste will win you over. This product is not tooth-snapping hard and is bursting with flavors of fruit, cinnamon and coconut. We sampled their Cranberry Granola and found it equally flavorful.
Our care package from Two Moms also included generous packages of Garden Herb and Tomato Basil “Sea Crackers.” These gluten free munchies are made with organic Flaxseed, Kombu (Edible Kelp), Sundried Tomatoes, Basil, Sea Salt and Spices. I preferred the Tomato Basil variety, especially when getting the occasional nugget of tart sundried tomato.
When it comes to healthy yet tasty snacking, Mother knows best!
