Here we are, January 1st, 2016. Wow! Not much has changed for us at Lola Granola Bar, but what has changed is all the hype around us. It's funny that for the last three years, Lola Granola Bar has only used clean, simple, good ingredients and now all of the sudden, there is a huge push around bringing attention to brands that are hiding their "unhealthy" ingredients and those that have nothing to hide. We've never had anything to hide! We pride ourselves on having a short ingredient list, all of which you AND your kids can pronounce, and keeping it clean, simple and good. What more can you ask for?
It's amazing how many people say they do read ingredients lists and that is great. BUT, can you say that you are 100% certain that you know where every ingredient comes from? If you can, that's great and you are probably among the healthiest 2% of Americans. If not, it might be time to re-think what you are eating. We aren't talking drastic changes here, it's about being informed.
Did you know that ingredients are listed in order of quantity? Did you also know that some ingredients will use names other than what you are expecting? Here's a quick, helpful article from our friends at The American Heart Association: http://bit.ly/1TucYQS pointing out the finer tips on reading labels.
Read carefully, eat healthfully and live a CLEAN.SIMPLE.GOOD.LIFE.
