Giddy Up & Go Granola Tastes Simple Amazing!

About the Food
Jennifer Bielawski founded Thoughtful Food in 2009 after her family was forced to change their diets to eliminate grain, starch, sugar and most lactose. After investing in many new gadgets and spending countless hours in the kitchen experimenting with recipes and searching for and testing numerous products, Jennifer discovered how to replicate many of the foods her family could no longer eat. This inspired her to start her own company, making nutritious “clean” food that tastes great!

Thoughtful Food, Inc., today announced the release of Giddy Up and Go Granola (GU and GG) – a delicious granola blend promoting healthy digestion, which offers the optimal daily requirement of Omegas needed for brain development. Starting with the finest ingredients available, Thoughtful Food created two granola blends so pure that they are one of the only brands on the market to be certified both organic and gluten-free. Products are made using only 100% organic agave nectar, and may be a safe choice for some diabetics as well.

Thoughtful Food Granolas are made in a dedicated certified gluten-free facility, guaranteed dairy-free, vegan and certified USDA organic products. GU and GG is currently available in two flavors – “Notoriously Nutty” and “Seriously Seedy.” Loaded with protein, “Notoriously Nutty” is made from only organic fruit and nuts to ensure only the best possible fuel for the body. Keeping in mind those with nut allergies, “Seriously Seedy” was created with organic pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds to add the textured crunch while the antioxidant rich dried fruit adds the full flavor. “The positive response to Giddy Up and Go Granola has been inspiring,” says Thoughtful Food Founder Jennifer Bielawski. “We strive to make sure our blends are as healthy and delicious as possible, and the consumer’s feedback is what makes us confident in the products we are creating.”

Giddy Up and Go Granola is currently available in over 75 grocery stores throughout Northern California, including Whole Foods, New Leaf Community Markets, Lunardi’s, Nugget Markets, Piedmont Grocery, Andronico’s Community Markets, Diablo Foods and Berkeley Bowl Market Place, and in all 196 Peet’s Coffee and Tea locations across the country. GU and GG can also be found in vending machines and cafeterias of several of the country’s most recognized and respected corporations including Zynga, Apple Inc., Lucas Films, Adobe, the San Francisco International Airport, four major University of California schools (Berkeley, Santa Barbara, San Francisco and Merced), two state universities (San Francisco and Humbolt), four hotels (Lafayette Park Hotel, Claremont Hotel, Meadowood Resort and Spa, The Fairmont San Francisco) and several renowned hospitals (Stanford Children's Hospital, John Muir Hospitals).

In the second half of 2012, GU and GG will be available in all Kaiser Hospital vending machines, and over 140 Sprouts store locations, which will further expand the company into Southern California and several additional states in the West.

My Take on the Food
This has to be some of the best tasting granola that I have ever tasted! I have tried a lot, and so many are dry and flavorless. The two varieties that I tried not only exploded with flavor, but it was fresh tasting, crisp and not dry tasting in the least. I also have to say that I loved reading the story of the company, as it is definitely a story that you will want to share with others and shows you that if you have a dream for a healthier family you can make it happen and you can get other families to also want to follow your leadership. I highly encourage everyone to try this great granola, as once you do, you may never go back to your old granola again!
