Review: Happy Belly Bags

Happy Belly Bags – what a great name!  When you think about it, it really makes  a lot of sense.  Eating gluten-free helps to keep the belly happy, right?  When I received a complimentary “Happy Belly Bag” to review, I was very impressed with what I saw.  Not only was the package presented nicely, but there were a nice variety of products included.

Some of the products included in my Happy Belly Bag were:

This bag is called the “Starter” bag.  It retails for $29.99 (Normally $34.99) + shipping and is a great gift for someone recently diagnosed or heading off to college.  Something I really liked about these bags were the fact that they were filled with well-known products.  Products that have a great reputation in the gluten-free community as producing consistent products.  Additionally, the bag has directions on it to plant in the ground and it will sprout into beautiful wildflowers!!  How cool is that?

A Message from Founder, Sarah Rothrock:

First off, I want to thank you for visiting us at Happy Belly Bags!

I know how difficult it can be to find products that are not only appropriate for your special dietary needs, but also taste great and are good for you! I myself have always been a “foodie”. I love to cook, love to eat and love to experiment with new foods. Because of this love of food and my love of nutrition I wanted to create a place for people like you, people who not only care about what they eat from a taste perspective, but care about how it’s made and the nutritional value of their food.

After years of suffering from food intolerance and playing with several different forms of vegetarianism, I know how overwhelming it can be to go to the grocery store and pick out great tasting, nutritious foods that didn’t cause me to double over in pain! I want to simplify your shopping experience and take some of the guess work out of it!

I want you to know that behind every product is my commitment to selecting absolute quality!

I believe: Every Belly Deserves to Be Happy!

So here’s to a Happy Belly!

-Sarah
