Luv Michael ~ Locally Sourced Organic Granola That Gives Back
Do you enjoy granola? It is delicious sprinkled on yogurt for a great morning breakfast, as a snack to bring hiking, or something easy to grab and go with. I love the flavors granola has and the different varieties out there.
Recently I was lucky enough to try Luv Michael Originola Granola. What is unique about this brand, and personally my favorite thing about it, is that they train, educate and employ people with Autism! Check out their About Us page for more detailed info. I know you'll love what you see.
The other thing that is terrific is the ingredients. They use 100% organic whole grain granola using the finest organic ingredients. This granola is gluten free, nut free and dairy free.
The flavor is delicious and light. It isn't doused in spices or flavors, giving the natural taste of granola and the organic dried cranberries and raisins inside. It is flavored with organic vanilla extract, organic cinnamon powder and organic ground nutmeg. The crunch is perfect too and it doesn't get soggy in my morning yogurt like some other brands I have tried. DELICIOUS!
I LOVE products that give back and the story. Luv Michael was inspired by Michael Kessaris. According to their Our Mission page, Michael had a passion for cooking but was having a hard time finding employment because of his autism. His parents, both physicians, helped create this business to employ Michael and other's like him. It is a family based business that is helping others at the same time. Giving jobs to those who need it while helping them lead happy and productive lives.
Luv Michael’s mission is to “provide a meaningful culinary vocation for the Autistic population and to produce exceptional gluten-free and natural products.” (copied from Our Mission page)
