I am so excited to tell you more about a brand that I have loved for a while now! Julie’s Real sells nut-based products that are not only made from good, whole food ingredients, but they are also extremely delicious!
Julie’s husband, Mike, was diagnosed with a precancerous condition called Barrett’s Esophagus in 2015, and it was at that moment that they decided to make a diet change. They cut out grains, dairy, processed food, and refined sugar. Julie began making nut-based snacks for her husband and Julie’s Real was born!
Julie and Mike LOVE to play golf and live an active lifestyle. They wanted a clean and convenient on-the-go snack so their grain-free granola is sold in resealable snack packs! I first met Julie at the Memorial Golf Tournament in Dublin, Ohio in 2016. She shared a pack of her granola with me on the golf course, and I was immediately sold!
They have two amazing granola flavors: Cinnamon Vanilla Bean and Cacao Coconut! The granola is grain-free, sweetened with organic honey, and is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and non-GMO. I carry these packs in my purse on the golf course or in my carry-on and Smylie loves to have them in his golf bag. Served with yogurt, as a smoothie topping, or just a handful by itself, this is one of my favorite snacks!
Now let’s talk about the cashew and almond butters. I could absolutely eat an entire jar in one sitting. Smylie has ditched his typical peanut butter and jelly sandwich for Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Cashew Butter and jelly for mid-round fuel. In his words, “I am officially addicted!” Welcome to the club! Every single product they make is amazing, but the Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Almond Butter and the Coconut Vanilla Bean Cashew Butter are at the top of my list! On toast, in smoothies, on a banana, or by the spoonful, I can’t get enough of these nut butters!
Always Finding Joy,
