Typical unhealthy American guy Decided to go on predominantly raw diet Lost 40 pounds, dropped cholesterol to a healthy level, and recovered lost energy Loved new lifestyle, but missed familiar crunch of snack foods Began experimenting with raw chips made from fresh vegetables, seeds, nuts, & spices Dehydrated chips below 115 degrees so as not to break commitment to raw diet With encouragement from family and friends, began selling chips at local farmers markets From farmers markets to local health food stores and nationwide chains! Brad’s Raw Foods is born!

Brad’s Raw Crunchy Kale starts out with the most nutritionally dense leafy green vegetable available…fresh, leafy kale! We then batter it up with flavorful, natural ingredients including raw cashews, sunflower seeds, & spices to give the kale that extra punch of flavor.

Five fun flavors: Naked, Nasty Hot, Pina Kale-ada, Nacho, Vampire Killer, & Smokey Chipotle Available in 2.5, 1.0, and 0.5 oz. containers
