Shop Locally - For Your Health!
It's no secret that I love to shop locally, and it should be no secret that I love to shop healthy! As a mom, I am constantly struggling about what is the best thing (especially snacks) to feed my family.
So, when I found out that the new nutrition bars I keep seeing at Heinen's are made by a local company, I just had to try them!
Good Greens Bars (a portfolio company at the Shaker LaunchHouse), has created the tastiest and most effective nutrition bars that this mom has yet to come across. I am thankful that they sent me some to sample. (Now I can't buy them fast enough to keep in the house!)
They come in 4 different flavors and they are all delicious!
- Chocolate Raspberry
- Chocolate Peanut Butter
- Coconut (which is also chocolate! - This one is my favorite)
My kids love them, too. Especially my toddler who I cannot get to eat vegetable. And get this - one bar provides 100% of your daily fruits and vegetables. How is this possible, you ask? Packed with the Z-52 superfood formula, it is loaded with antioxidants and jammed with 12 grams of protein! Where other bars fail, Good Greens has managed to pack all of these nutrients into every bar and provide an amazing taste that'll get you hooked - just like me!
These bars are:
- Gluten Free
- Dairy Free
- Low Glycemin
- The new Good Greens Plus Bars are Soy Free!
- Natural and Organic!
So, support a local company and be healthy! You can find Good Greens Bars at Heinen's and also at some Marc's, Mustard Seed Market, GNC, Dave's, Anderson's Market, and Krieger's.

I have to share their Mission Statement because it sums them up so well:

We’re passionate about creating delicious, innovative foods made with wholesome natural ingredients that offer the highest value in nutrition and taste.
