We have started testing Wellies™ as a make-at-home mix! Be sure to follow the progress on our Facebook page!
Wellies™ were developed by Minneapolis nutritionist, Teri Rose, out of the need for convenient – yet nutritious, and humanely produced – portable meal and snack options with organic protein, filling fiber, and heart healthy omega-3 and monounsaturated fats.
Meal size Wellies™ = 21 grams of protein & 8 grams of fiber
Snack size Wellies™ = 7 grams of protein & 3 grams of fiber
Wellies macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein, and fats) are balanced using the Diabetic Exchange System to help support blood glucose regulation and to help keep you full - giving you control over your hunger.
"I first tried Wellies thinking it would be like a granola bar or other food bar. I assumed it could be tasty but didn’t really think a bar could be a meal replacement. I was skeptical but, yes, they are truly filling enough to be a meal. My husband and I each keep Wellies at work for snacks or lunches. They’re great on weekends for a quick meal and easy to take along on bike rides and hikes.
And I’m impressed with the taste. No cardboard or fake flavors here; oats, nuts and just enough sweetness. Beyond the taste it’s nice to know that the blend is nutritionally sound and includes organic ingredients.
Healthy, filling and tasty – awesome!"
