Review: Brad’s Raw Foods
I received a few of Brad’s products to try out. So you know my official position on kale before reading my comments, if I had known they were sending Kale Chips, I would have politely declined. Yes, I understand that Kale is really good for me, but I’m just not a kale fan. Not until now that is. This non-kale lover has been converted!
Brad’s crackers and chips are gluten free, vegan, high in fiber, a good source of Omega-3′s, a healthy snack alternative for kids, rich in vitamins and enzymes and made out of fresh vegetables.
Brad’s says these amazing chips are “dehydrated below 115 degrees to preserve the nutrients and enzymes that aid digestion and keep you energized, you no longer have to feel guilty about indulging in your favorite snack!”
Why raw? Brad began his raw diet in 2006, overweight and out of shape. His health, weight, and energy improved and changed so much, that he stayed with it, and now has a mission to share the benefits of the raw diet with others, along with some great crunchy raw snacks.
Brad’s has 14 flavors of chips and crackers, and leafy kale.
Here are the three Brad’s Raw Foods that I tried, in the order that I liked them.
This stuff is amazing. It’s crispy and addictive, and actually tastes awesome! I even feel a little healthier after a box of this stuff – no kidding.
INGREDIENTS: KALE, RED BELL PEPPER, CASHEWS, SUNFLOWER SEEDS, LEMON JUICE, SCALLIONS, NUTRITIONAL YEAST, GARLIC, HIMALAYAN SEA SALT

Naked (Plain Vegan Cheese) – Brad’s Raw Leafy Kale
This is just as amazing and tastes very similarly cheesy and crunchy to the Vampire Killer flavor minus the garlic.
INGREDIENTS: KALE, RED BELL PEPPER, CASHEWS, SUNFLOWER SEEDS, LEMON JUICE, NUTRITIONAL YEAST, HIMALAYAN SEA SALT
Red Bell Pepper – Brad’s Raw Chips
These are perfect for dips – very sturdy and rustic. You can taste each ingredient used for a very nice and healthy tasting veggie chip.
INGREDIENTS: CARROTS, RED BELL PEPPERS, FLAX SEEDS, SPROUTED BUCKWHEAT GROATS, SCALLIONS, EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL, GARLIC, HIMALAYAN SEA SALT, PAPRIKA, BLACK PEPPER.
Will I go completely raw? Probably not anytime soon, but I certainly will enjoy Brad’s raw crackers, chips and leafy kale whenever I can – and will feel a little better about myself in the process.
