A Search for Great Vegan Food in San Diego

Pure Bar

Big ideas can come from unexpected places.  One day, Veronica Bosgraaf’s six-year old daughter, Anna, visited a petting zoo and decided she wanted to be a vegetarian.  Ms. Bosgraaf perused the grocery store for healthy, vegetarian snacks and was disappointed by the offerings.  So, she decided to make her own.  Ms. Bosgraaf began making bars out of ingredients like nuts, fruit, and brown rice protein.  The bars were well received both by her family and the community, and Pure Organic Bars were born.

It’s not hard to see why Pure Organic Bars quickly fly off of supermarket shelves.  The bars are certified organic, vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO verified, and with flavors like Wild Blueberry, Cherry Cashew, and Chocolate Brownie, there is bar everyone is sure to love!  Most recently, Pure Bar debuted two new flavors: (1) Peanut Butter Chocolate and (2) Cashew Coconut.

Pure Bar: Cashew Coconut

 

Pure Bar found a unique plant protein source, the Sacha Inchi seed, when creating the Cashew Coconut flavor.  The Sacha Inchi seed is full of omega-3’s, protein, and fiber and was first cultivated by the Incas in Peru over 3,000 years a go.   The seed is thought to have a wide range of health benefits which  include promoting brain and bone health, easing joint pain, preventing premature aging,  improving vision and eye health, encouraging healthy skin and hair, and curbing free radical damage.  That’s a lot for one seed!  Click here to learn more about Sacha Inchi seed!

Bite into this bar and enjoy the creamy, smooth coconut taste.  The bar clocks in at 190 calories with 5 grams of protein.  A great, healthy, on-the-go snack!
