“With everyone’s hectic lives, it can be really hard to find time to eat right,” said Ellie Josephs, co-founder of Four Hands Healing Foods. “We wanted to create a quick and easy snack that was not only nutritious and allergen-free, but also absolutely delicious.
Believed by many food experts to be the healthiest dietary lifestyle available to humans, “raw foods” — made from fruits, vegetables, and seeds that are never heated above 115 degrees Fahrenheit — is fast becoming a trendy culinary option. Each OH BAR is made of raw, organic, unprocessed ingredients, such as seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, and hemp), coconut nectar, coconut flour, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and pink Himalayan salt. They are high in fiber, minerals, protein, and essential fatty acids, and contain no gluten, wheat, nuts, grains, dairy, added oils, preservatives or shelf stabilizers.
“These are truly artisanal products made in small batches entirely by hand,” Ms. Josephs explained. “They are unlike any other bar currently on the market.” The crunchy bars are dehydrated at low temperatures, never baked, so they remain full of living enzymes. All seeds are pre-soaked in filtered water, which enhances their nutrient value, makes them easy to digest, and cuts the fat content in half.
OH BARs are sold online and through a growing list of local retailers, and are available in two flavors, Original and Cacao/Goji Berry. Ms. Josephs and co-founder Joyce Gass are longtime members of the Los Angeles healing community. “We are passionate about awakening the body’s own healing potential via a healthy lifestyle and mindful eating,” Ms. Gass said. “Our goal is to share what we’ve learned with other people and provide wholesome products that foster energy and vitality.”
