Introducing Battenkill Brittle & Crumble
High Energy Snack and Breakfast
I’ve often wanted a healthy snack option for my clients after their massage therapy session. Many people can relate to feeling a bit ungrounded after their massage, and rightfully so. During a massage treatment we move a lot of energy around, get oxygen, blood, and circulation moving, loosen tight muscle groups that actually shift posture and balance (for the better of course). Why wouldn’t someone feel a bit ungrounded. Then you need to drive home, make dinner, help the kids with homework, yes you need to be able to function. So, I’ve wanted a snack option that would provide a sustained energy lift with a good protein source that wouldn’t be taxing to the digestive system or include the typical processed ingredients found in most all protein snack bars like processed sugars, colorings, preservatives, soy, carrageenan, dairy, gluten, or other health detracting ingredients.
So, I’m happy to announce I am now stocking Battenkill Brittle from a small company in Vermont.
Battenkill Brittle… Instant Energy That Lasts!
Battenkill Brittle and Battenkill Brittle Crumble are made with organic sunflower seeds, organic sesame seeds, organic pumpkin seeds, organic brown rice syrup, pure Vermont maple syrup and pecan meal.
Battenkill Brittle is a high energy snack and Crumble is the perfect addition to yogurt, oatmeal, waffles and salads. It is packed with nutrition and provides sustaining energy for any kind of physical activity, as a snack for students, or a pick-me-up at the office. (quoted from the company web site)
Seeds are natures energy & nutrient powerhouse to help get plants off to a robust start. Science has shown the health benefits of seeds and sprouts for many years. Seeds are loaded with protein, healthy oils, fiber, and provide significant sustained energy.

The Brittle comes 3 to a pack. I was amazed at how satisfying and sustaining one of these squares can be. I now use this to help me sustain my energy and focus thru my long days of massage therapy.
So, next time you are in for a massage check out our new display and try some for yourself. You may be as excitedly surprised as I was when I discovered these.
