Lydia’s Organics Review and Giveaway!

Now closed

When I think about a raw food diet, what comes to mind is usually:

Raw vegetables.

I rarely think of decadent bars, sinful tasting chips, and delicious granola. But thanks to talented companies like Lydia’s Organics, everyone is able to enjoy these foods!

Lydia’s Organics is a company out of Petaluma, CA that provides gluten-free, raw, organic, and vegan goodies of all sorts. They even have their own cafe!

When the generous package arrived from Lydia’s Organics, I couldn’t wait to try everything! From Kale Krunchies to Vanilla Crunch Cereal, I was over the moon.


Plus, the cute label they put on the package was so sweet!


Being the cereal fanatic I am, I started by opening up this bag of Vanilla Crunch Cereal goodness.


I topped off a blueberry green smoothie with this mixture, and it was heavenly to say the least. The cereal has a very mild flavor, so it’s great stirred into smoothies, etc.


I also loved it stirred into yogurt-With more for topping, of course:) I know yogurt is not raw in the slightest, but this combo is great!


Next up came the Green Crackers, which were another favorite! They are based on sunflower seeds and have a ton of veggies in them. I loved that they were a little salty- no toppings required!


Naturally, I couldn’t wait to long to open these Mega Green Kale Krunchies up.


These were good-sized and so flavorful from the cayenne! I’m a total wimp little sensitive to spicy foods, so they were a bit overpowering on their own.


I mellowed them down by stirring them into soup. So good!


I was intrigued with the Green Powder, which has a licorice flavor on its own. It’s full of green goodness like spirulina, so I added a spoonful to my already green smoothie as an extra boost. The banana covered up most of it, but it did add an interesting-in-a-good-kind-of-way flavor.


The Sunflower Seed Bread was also a winner. They were more like crackers, but were great with hummus and other toppings.


I saved the best for last and finally broke into the decadent bars. I’ve always been a huge fan of this Spirulina Bar, which has a strong coconut and banana flavor. It’s amazing!


I thought the Cacao Crunch Bar could’ve been more flavorful and sweeter, but I was still a fan.

I did however love the Raspberry Bar as well as the Tropical Mango Bar, which I paired with a yogurt. My favorite of all, though? The Lemon Ginger. When is that mix not a winning combo?

And here’s the stats for the Spirulina Bar.All of the bars have saturated fat content ranging from 0.5 grams to 7 grams from the coconut. They all contain a good amount of fiber and protein, while staying low on the sugar and sodium. Another bonus? This bar has 30% of your RDA for vitamin A!


Ready for the best part? Lydia’s Organics was so sweet and sent over 5 of their awesome bars to give away to one lucky Modern Girl Nutrition reader!

  8. oh these all look so good. I would love to try the Spirulina bar thing. Looks so strange, but yummy!

  9. mmmm :3 I’d love to win because I love trying new foods and would like to experience ‘raw’ that isn’t raw veggies!

  10. Those look delish. I’ve never actually had raw bars of that sort, but it sounds like they’re a hit 😀

  11. Looks like a really great brand!

  12. You make a good point – when I think of raw food, I think of fish or veggies. I never thought about granola 🙂 I’ve never tried Lydia’s Organics but I think it is awesome that the company is based out of Petaluma, California. Marty and I visited Petaluma during our honeymoon trip. We stayed there for two nights and I loved it! The town was so quaint and really focused on organic, fresh, local foods. LOVE LOVE LOVE! I really wish Columbus placed more of an emphasis on these ideals. Unfortunately we are one of the most overweight cities in the country 😦

  13. Wow… everything looks amazing! I want to try it all, especially that raspberry bar 🙂

  14. linda

    Hi Sunnie!

    Wow, everything looks delish! I’m trying to turn over a new leaf and eat healthy. Always too chicken to buy new stuff tho. PLUS, it can get really expensive. Anyway, I’d love to try any of these samples.
    thank you for the offer!

  15. Wow! All of those products look top-notch! Yum! I adore sunflower seed bread. Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway! Happy Monday!

  16. Amanda

  17. I would LOVE to win this giveaway so that I can try the Green Crackers, the Kale Krunchies, and the Sunflower See Butter. All three sound so delicious, and I love the added healthy factor!

  27. sarah

    Great review!
    All these foods sound pretty different to anything I’ve ever tried before. Or like anything I can actually get round my part of the world. So it would be great to be able to try them. I love spirulina, so that bar particularly appeals to me.

  28. Yum!
    I’d like to win because as a vegan college student I practically ‘live’ off of bars,
    and the ingredients are very ‘clean’ and I completely agree with and embrace raw foods 🙂
    And yo, the lemon ginger sounds like a great combination – I *heart* anything with ginger in it.

  29. Liked on facebook 🙂

  30. Following too!

  31. & Liked Lydia’s Organics on Facebook as well

  32. Thanks for this great product review! I am so envious of all the cool vegan, gluten free, etc… products that the USA has, up here in Canada our selection is improving but nothing as fabulous thats for sure 🙂

  33. Raw food is amazing. I just finished reading Carol Alt’s book Easy, Sexy Raw and have recently started incorporating more raw food into my diet but goodies like these are crazy expensive (I paid $7 for 2 OZ of raw kale chips!). I would love, love, love to win this giveaway since I have been very eager to try Lydia’s organics for some time.

  34. I liked you on facebook!
