When Renee McCormack goes to work in her East Hampton commercial kitchen there are prciousfew hands involved in the making of her FOODfitness Granola Clusters. Two hands to be exact.
“Everything at this point is maintainable by me, so I can oversee every aspect of it and feel proud about each bag,” said McCormack, a life-long local who has been in the health food business for nearly two decades.
The focus of her company is granola clusters, a perfectly simple and extremely healthy snack that goes well on fruit, yogurt or just by itself. FOODfitness granola is organic, gluten free, non-GMO, fair trade and made with all-natural sweeteners by the hands of McCormack herself. The six-ounce bags are carried locally at Hampton Market, Luigi’s, Simply Sublime, Springs General Store in East Hampton and Sag Town Coffee and Harbor Market in Sag Harbor, with plans to continue moving west.
There are three flavors available. Maple Vanilla Peanut Butter, Coconut Cranberry
Cocoa Nib and Sunflower Super Seed Bee Pollen, which packs a healthy punch with ingredients like chia, flax, sesame and hemp seeds as well as a trace of seaweed. The bee pollen is great at fighting seasonal allergies, but also works as a natural sweetener.
