There’s something about natural and organic foods that makes my self-esteem grow higher. The fact that no artificial stuff is entering my body, and the fact that it’s healthy is why! Nature’s Path has a wide variety of food products that the healthnut in all of us can thoroughly enjoy! They even offer products geared towards kids!
It’s so hard to find gluten-free food that actually tastes good, but Nature’s Path is here to the rescue. They offer a variety of gluten-free choices. They have 19 gluten-free products to choose from, with more on the way. Uncompromisingly great taste without the gluten. They’re delicious, wholesome foods made from good stuff like organic corn, rice, and even amaranth and quinoa.

I’m not normally a cereal person, but when I reviewed Crunchy Vanilla Sunrise…all previous opinions dissipated. The crunch of this cereal is magnificent. It has a variety of flakes, puffs and crispies that give this cereal it’s crunch. I can’t believe a gluten-free cereal could withhold all this yummy flavor! This cereal is USDA certified organic. With an excellent source of fiber under it’s belt, I don’t feel guilty about consuming this! This cereal contains 0.15g of omega 3 per serving, which is 11% of the recommended daily value of 1.3g. On the back of the box, the motto “Don’t confuse vanilla with ordinary” is plastered. They couldn’t be more right! Crunchy Vanilla Sunrise is beyond ordinary.

*Organic. Produced in a facility that uses peanuts, tree nuts or soy.
I also received the Envirokidz Organic Peanut Butter Panda Puffs. These is a wonderful, healthy cereal that your children will enjoy. It’s colorful, artistic packaging will draw kids in. The fun and cute panda bears will have all cereal-munchers going “awe!”. Not only will they be fascinated by the packaging, they’ll be even more fascinated by the taste of the cereal! I had my daughter test these out, and she devoured them in minutes. With only four teeth to her name, these were easy for her to chew…and didn’t result in her choking. The peanut butter taste drew me in for her to try out. She’s never had any kind of peanut butter products before, and I decided to let her explore new flavors. The puffs are really small. I feel much more comfortable feeding my daughter this for breakfast than Cheerios or Froot Loops. This cereal is also low in sodium. The back of the box also has a puzzle for kids to put back together!

The Pumpkin Flax Plus Granola is another food product that Nature’s Path sells. It is an excellent source of ALA omega-3! This granola is high in fiber, and it is whole grain. It contains 0.7g of ALA omega-3 per serving, which is 44% of the recommended daily value of 1.6g. This nutritious granola is also quite delicious! It is enriched with pumpkin and flax seeds to offer up an impressive 450 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids and 1500 mg of Omega-6 fatty acids.

In addition, I received the Hemp Plus Oatmeal. It contains 380mg of omega-3 per serving! Nature’s Path’s heart healthy organic hempseed and oats are grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). They use no chemical additives or preservatives, so you get only a wholesome energizing breakfast. It is no common knowledge, but hemp seed delivers the highest levels of essential fatty acids of any plant in a ratio exactly suited to the bodies needs. It also contains all 9 essential amino acids (proteins) needed to maintain good health, and is easily digested and absorbed by the body, which makes it a perfect vegetarian alternative to meat protein.
Hemp is NOT marijuana! Industrial hemp produces no significant levels of THC (a psychoactive ingredient). Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson understood the benefits of hemp and farmed it extensively.
This hot oatmeal is low in fat and sodium. It’s also made from whole grains and has 0g trans fat.

Last but certainly not least, the Berry Strawberry Flax Plus chewy granola bars. One box has five delicious bars. The berry strawberry taste is like chopping into a piece of heaven. Not only that…but it’s an excellent source of ALA omega-3. It also contains 13g of whole grains and ONLY real fruit!
Nature’s Path’s new and improved line has upped the granola bar ante, all with that organic goodness you’ve come to expect from them. Take these Berry Strawberry bar, for example. Real, organic strawberries, sweet raspberries, and just the right amount of real, creamy yogurt; all made with good stuff like whole grain oats. That’s a berry healthy snack!
