Probiotic Bars and VegeLight Drink

Good Gut Health

Our wellness has a lot to do with good gut health. Probiotics are the “good” bacteria our intestines need and love. They’ve been credited with everything from quelling allergies to slowing the aging process. And of course we all know we should be eating our veggies, too. But who has time to buy, chop and steam four to five servings of veggies every day.

Marjolein Brugman is a fitness expert and driving force behind LighterLiving. She knows that wellness is a personal journey, and everyone does better with support. So
she’s making it easy to incorporate better nutrition into your daily routine. Her Probiotic Bars are a convenient, healthful snack, and her VegeLight mix can be enjoyed either hot or cold.

The probiotic bar assortment includes five bars each of chocolate, apricot coconut, and lemon poppyseed flavors — each are drizzled in yogurt. They’re packed with fiber and probiotics, plus they’re all-organic and have no added sugar. The VegeLight concentrated mix includes 14 veggies along with green tea extract, so you’re getting your antioxidants in an easy, low-calorie blast.

LighterLiving is all about whole-body health that’s easy, accessible and simply delicious.

    I am Marjolein Brugman, the founder of LighterLiving. Wellness is a combination of healthy positive thoughts, a strong body from well chosen food and exercise, and an open spirit that allows you to feel connected.

    Most of you don't really know if your are "well"' let alone know whether you are getting enough of the right nutrients or the right kind of functional fitness.

    One of the things that I can do is help you understand how to embark on that journey, feed you the facts and debunk the myths.

    I am honored to be chosen by Daily Grommet. After all only one in a thousand products is chosen. They understand that when it comes to health, one of the most important functions is your digestive system so that you can actually absorb the essential nutrients that you eat.

    Hi Marjolein,

    I just wanted to comment and let you know how informative this video was. Embarrassingly enough, until now I never really understood what "probiotic" meant. Thank you for your great explanation. I also really like the idea of adding a scoop of the drink mix when preparing meals for my family. I have a 3 and 9 year old and love this simple assurance that they are getting enough healthy "stuff."

    What a great way to start the summer with 2 delicious snacks that will give you loads of energy while correcting your digestive system so that you assimilate all those essential nutrients from the fresh fruits and vegetables you will be eating and eliminate the unwanted toxins that clog you up.

    Marjolein - I was thinking the same thing as Tori. In that short amount of time you had, you clearly explained what probiotics and digestive health are all about and why they are important. Thank you! I love the powder idea mixing it in foods...much easier than pureeing broccoli!

    Tori Wait till you taste these products. the VegeLight is so delicious, and tastes like tangy, fresh tomatoes. I love it hot, like soup and it satisfies me for lunch, in only 100 calories! Cold it makes a great bloody mary! The probiotic bars are so scrumptious it is hard not to have one of each flavor! My 10 year old loves these flavors and readily eats them, plus they are both gluten free. As for probiotics we cannot get enough.

    Katherine Probiotics are seriously important in today's diet as the level of antibiotics we absorb from chicken and meats let alone the ones that are prescribed, damage the healthy environment needed in our body to benefit from the food we eat. Bad digestive environment also contributes to constipation which makes one feel crummy. These bars are a delicious and easy way to take probiotics and fiber without concern.
