Three years ago, Nicole Anderson started making Elemental Superfood Seedbars out of necessity. The mother of a child with autism, Anderson noticed dramatic shifts in her daughter's behavior when she ate wheat, dairy and sugar, the cornerstone ingredients for almost all conventional snack foods. So Anderson created her own snacks -- organic, raw seed bars, free of all the foods her daughter was allergic to -- and somehow, against all odds, they were delicious.

Perhaps "against all odds" isn't exactly fair. What we mean is that to us, the unallergic lovers of sugar and wheat, phrases like "sugar-free" and "gluten-free" are tantamount to cursing. They conjure images of laboratory foods: rice flour pizza crust, Splenda and "special beer." They're buzzwords for the kombucha guzzlers. For those who "cleanse." And so rarely do they align with anything as unpretentious and wholesome as Anderson's Elemental Superfood Seedbars.
