Try at your own discretion:

Foodie Fuel (www.foodiefuel.com)– grab and go cookie–type snack. My reservations are: 1) the seeds are not soaked/sprouted 2) whole flax seeds and whole chia seeds give me digestive problems. (I can only consume these seeds soaked/sprouted and ground up.)

Other items of note:
