Team LUNA Chix – Chicago Run
We love LUNA!  And LUNA loves you!  That's why there’s a full sized bar in your goodie bag.  Yippee!  LUNA uses 70% organic ingredients and is specially formulated for women by providing B vitamins, calcium, and iron - All nutrients women tend to be deficient in because of our "on the go, and on demand" lifestyles!  Your local Team LUNA Chix running team will be hosting their LUNA booth and cheering you on!  Go see them and say hi – and sample another bit of what LUNA offers.

Better Whey of Life  
We women work hard and play hard and need to rebuild our bodies in the healthiest way possible – here’s where Better Whey of Life yogurt comes in!  Most flavors have a whopping 15 grams of protein, low in sugars and high in that bone-building calcium.  And the flavors are mouth-watering luscious!  Go try a sample of this healthy and tasty yogurt at the Expo and taste for yourself how good it is to eat well and be healthy!

Juice Plus+
Eat your veggies!  That’s what Mom always told us, right?  Even if we are good girls and eat as much as we can from the produce department, often it’s still not enough, especially given our busy lifestyles.  That’s where Juice Plus+ comes in. It’s a convenient, affordable, and natural whole food based nutritional product providing nutrition from 17 vegetables, fruits, and grains. It’s not a vitamin supplement!  It’s a capsule, chewable, or beverage designed to get all those little micro nutrients that just often get missed in our attempt to eat super healthy.  Stop by the booth and sample some and see what they have to say!

Delivery Produce Co.
It’s simple: the more fresh fruit and veggies we eat the better our bodies feel.  And the fresher the produce, the better the nutrients.  Let Zac and John deliver fresh goods right to your door!  They deliver in the Chicago-land area, saving you a lot of time and money from going to track down your fresh goods yourself.  They want their home-town to be healthy – and because of that, are donating all of the fruit for our finisher’s!  Thanks guys!  Go to the Expo booth to find out about Delivery Produce.

thinkThin®
thinkThin® bars were created to travel well, taste great and provide the energy and satiation that sustains you exactly for your active, on-the-go lifestyle. Lizanne Falsetto, the founder of thinkThin®, developed the yummy bars so that we could all travel light with a product that is streamlined to high quality, high performance ingredients in an unusually delicious selection of flavors. There are – count ‘em – twelve flavors of their high protein bar!  And all thinkThin® protein bars have been gluten free since the company started. We know you running women will enjoy the high protein and low sugar content of these delicious snacks – go get a sample at the thinkThin® Expo booth!

Zema’s Madhouse Foods
Zema’s comes from the initials of local girl, founder Jill Motew’s five kids (Zev, Emi, Max, Asher and Simon). Zema's Madhouse Foods, inc. commits to manufacturing gluten-free, ancient grain baking mixes that support a clean eating lifestyle through the use of ingredients that can safely be a part of diets that are limited, allergy-free and diabetic-friendly. You won’t find any of the usual suspects that cause allergens:  no dairy, soy, yeast, tree nuts, sulfites, additives…whew – can these baking mixes BE any more healthy?  These are not only good-for-you and the family, they are delicious!  Go get some samples of what these convenient baking mixes can produce.  Yum!

i heart keenwah
Keen..what?  Quinoa is how it’s spelled but keenwah is how it’s pronounced.  Local girl Sarah toured Bolivia and discovered the varied uses of this complete protein, healthy, gluten-free grain – and turned that discovery into tasty keenwah snacks.  Chocolate Sea Salt quinoa?  Ginger peanut quinoa? You bet!  Those and other tasty flavors will satisfy the snack urge AND give you the health benefits of high protein, low sugar, and lots of those good old vitamins and minerals.  Snacking is good for you!  Go check out the i heart keenwah booth at the Expo and sample for yourself!

Journey Bar
As their motto says: our flavors are savory.  our ingredients are natural.  our nutrition is real. Are you tired of the overly sweet snack bars that use the same old flavors as everyone else? Try something new – Journey Bar.  It’s as much of a snack bar as it is a food bar to throw in the bag, whether you are hiking, driving across the US, or flying over the ocean to some other country.  The flavors are savory, not sweet.  Who would have thought a Coconut Curry food bar could be so delicious?  How unique is that?  Journey Bar uses whole grains, spices, and real food ingredients to bring you the best flavor and the best nutrition. Try all five flavors at their Expo booth!

Mary Kay
We T9 women love to look as great on the outside as we are on the inside, so why not do that with a company that lives by the motto, "Enriching Women's Lives".  Jessica and Ann are including samples in your goodie bag, and on race day you can stop by their booth and participate in a "Satin Lips Challenge!"  Roll the dice to see what you'll take home and have your lips feeling satin-y smooth after a hard run.  Feel good about looking great with a company who donates millions every year to fight cancers against women and supports domestic violence shelters all over the United States.

The result?  Incredibly delicious and more nutritious than any other snack chip out there.  You can try for yourself since there is a sample size in each goodie bag!  Thanks Way Better Snacks for going the extra mile to make the food we can trust for its goodness and health!
