Fuel Up for Back to School with 2 Go Energy from Lorenz!

2go aisle pic

Back to school for many of us is music to our ears.  For others, like busy parents on the go wondering what to feed themselves and their children, it can be a little tricky.   Nonetheless time does not stand still and we need motivate each other to re-set, re-organize and get back into the swing of things.

Summer has come and gone with amazing memories that will last forever.   Many of us can relate to the month of September as back to school, busier streets running to sports activities, earlier sunsets, and lazier days.  But now that we’re back to a schedule in September, I would like to introduce 2 Go Energy snacks.

2go cerealVERSATILITY

ORIGIN:

Diagnosed with Celiac Disease and a soy allergy in 2007, Michelle couldn’t find a healthy snack that wasn’t full of sugar or empty calories to eat on the go.  Coming from a baking background she developed a series of recipes that she shared with friends and family and with their support 2Go Energy came to light in 2008.

Designed with digestive health in mind, every batch is hand made in small quantities with the highest quality local ingredients.  Every ingredient they’ve chosen you can pronounce, they don’t use chemicals or artificial preservatives.  Healthy snacking is what they believe in.
