Hey Yinz, guys it’s been a month since my last post and that’s due to health issues mainly due to my Rheumatoid Arthritis. Now that I’m back I’m coming to you with my second, yup thats right second sponsored post, and this time it’s brought to you by BrandBacker and LUV Michael who makes probably the best organic granola treats I’ve ever had.
So before I get into the actual review of the granola I first want to tell you about the brand Luv Michael as well as Michael who is the man behind the brand. Luv Michael was started in 2015 by Michael alongside his parents as a way to allow Michael to live out his passion for culinary. Michael who at the time was 17 has autism, but that never stopped him from wanting to pursue a career that allowed him to showcase his love for cooking. Michael was unable to attend culinary school, which lead to his parents to start LUV Michael as a way for not only Michael but other adults living with autism a way to provide for themselves through job and life training. This training allows them to become productive citizens which also allows them to make money for themselves, which we all know when we are able to make money and provide for ourselves that helps with promoting dignity, high self esteem as well as a high self worth. The workers who have autism are rightfully given the title of “Granologists”, which means that they have gone through the proper training as well as safety training that is needed to work at LUV Michael. In the future Luv Michael hopes to provide further life and job training for adults with autism to work for the company as they hope to branch out and offer other organic products outside of just granolas in the near future. All proceeds from sales go to provide training and sustainable jobs for individuals with autism.
Now let’s discuss LUV Michaels Organic Granola snack pack. It has 100% organic whole grain granola. It is gluten free, dairy free, nut free and each bach is hand made, mixed and packed by the “Granologists” thats I mentioned earlier.
So now comes the best part, trying out LUV Michaels Organic Granola for the 1st time. Like I mentioned at the start of this post I was out sick mainly due to my RA, but another small reason also had to do with my digestive and dietary issues. Basically I’m not getting enough fiber in my diet which has caused me to suffer from constipation and bloating as well (sorry if this is TMI). So getting the opportunity to try out this product couldn’t have come at a better time, being that granola is good source of fiber which helps with your digestive system. I’ve never been a big granola eater, and that’s mainly because the brands that I have tried before have been…well pretty nasty. They’re usually really bland, dry and to me taste like I’m eating wood. So I was a little hesitant to try this out, but I was in love with the story and its mission to help provide better lives for people with autism that I wanted to give it a try. So when I took my first bite I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty it was, it was very moist and filled with a lot of flavor. I love that I can really taste the raisins and cranberries in the batch that I received. I also sprinkled a little over my strawberry fruit yogurt…and when I say BOMB…I really mean it. It added not only a crunch to the yogurt but also added an extra flavor as well. LUV Michaels Organic Granola can be eaten by itself as a quick snack or breakfast for when you’re on the run. It can also be broken into pieces over your favorite oatmeal or yogurt like I did to add that extra yum factor to your favorite foods. I was sent the 2 oz bag but I know for next time I will go for a bigger size because this stuff is really that good.
Not only is this a healthy alternative snack to the sugary stuff I usually like to eat, it’s also very yummy. But most importantly it also lends a helping hand to people with autism who just like you and I want to contribute to society, and this company gives them that chance. I love companies who don’t look just to make a profit, but also look to give back or give a helping hand. I want to thank BrandBacker and LUV Michael for the opportunity to try and review such an awesome snack. Now I hope you guys don’t just take my word for it, I suggest you go out and try this organic snack on your own. If you’re in the New York area you can pick LUV Michael up at some local coffee shops as well as some Starbucks. Or if you’re like me and don’t live in New York you can order online here. If you do end up ordering a bag or two, please let me know in the comments below. And if you have already tried LUV Michaels Organic Granola please let me know what you thought as well.
Thanks yinz guys for sticking around while I was out sick, I have so many new things coming up on this blog that I cant wait to share.
Peace Yinz Guys
