The birth of a bar


There are so many bars out there promising to give you energy, stave off hunger, or provide you with enough protein for an active lifestyle. Veronica Bosgraaf, a mom from Michigan, doesn't promise that. She simply offers the mantra, "Eat pure. Live pure."

Bosgraaf invented Pure Bars after her 6-year-old daughter announced she was going vegetarian. Each bar is soft and chewy and jam-packed with flavorful goodness that makes you simply feel healthy knowing each bite is made from organic and raw ingredients without added sugar. The flavors include apple cinnamon, chocolate brownie, cranberry orange, wild blueberry and cherry cashew, and each is certified vegan and gluten-free.

Buy them for about $1.50 each at Whole Foods Market, Raley's or Trader Joe's.
