This time of year we’re all searching for the perfect snack that will satisfy our cravings without compromising our health resolutions. Well, we’ve found it—again! Gorilly Goods (formerly knows as Reallygoods) are now available in two additional fantastic flavors, chocolate and savory. These organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, raw, zero cholesterol, zero trans fats, dehydrated treats are made right here in Wisconsin and are the perfect treat. Or if you’ve already broken your New Year’s resolution, add them to your favorite ice cream. These truly are an ideal snack from a great local company. Available at Willy Eastand West.
Now is the perfect time to begin reaping the benefits that hundreds of generations before us have enjoyed. From increased immunity to better blood sugar control, the benefits of ginseng are well-known and far-reaching. And fortunately for us, a lot of it is grown right here in Wisconsin. Burmeister ginseng is grown a couple hours to the north in Wausau at a family growers’ co-op and is pesticide-free. Read more about it in the December 2014 Reader. You can choose from a powder, pill or extract. Available at East and West.
If your resolution this New Year involves a Paleo diet, Willy Street Co-op could become your new home, thanks in great part to Paleo Mama’s new offerings. This locally owned and operated Madison company offers preservative-free granola, cookies and mints that are free of grain, gluten, and most importantly, guilt. Enjoy cranberry walnut or chocolate cherry granola, chocolate or oatmeal cookies, cupcakes, cheesecakes, or peppermint fudge thins. Available at East and West.
