In the realm of packaged breakfast and snack foods, we’re always on the lookout for superfood ingredients to add some extra nourishment—even when we’re on-the-go and don’t have time to make something ourselves. If ancient grains like quinoa, hemp, and chia seeds are on your must-have pantry list, then you won’t want to miss Purely Elizabeth. Her cult-like granola following practically speaks for itself! In addition to superfoods, this brand also leans on natural sugars instead of refined sugars so every bite is just the right amount of sweet—sans cane sugar.
The History of Purely Elizabeth
Elizabeth Stein studied holistic nutrition in college, which is where she first learned about the benefits of superfoods. When she searched the grocery store shelves, Stein noticed an absence in superfood options so she took it upon herself to change that. Her “A-ha” moment came in 2008 when she attended a festival to promote her coaching practice. She brought along some homemade treats and it turned out that no one wanted to sign up for her services—they all asked for were her baked goods recipes! What started off as a side project has now become a full-fledged movement to get superfoods in everyone’s kitchen.

Benefits of Purely Elizabeth
Superfood ingredients like quinoa, chia, millet, hemp, and coconut oil star in every product from Purely Elizabeth. Also, the line is gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and organic. As a Certified B Corporation, the company was required to undergo rigorous evaluations to ensure it met standards relating to environmental and social impacts, which the brand passed with flying colors. Another big benefit of enjoying Purely Elizabeth’s granola and snacks is simply convenience. It’s great to make these items from scratch when you can, but it’s just as easy to rely on brands that do the heavy lifting in terms of choosing nutritious ingredients for you.
