Highlighting gr8ness: Meet Crystal Baik

“The world must know about the goodness of gr8nola! My diabetic grandmother snacks on it, my grandpa shares it with his hiking buddies, and I eat gr8nola every day because I low-key feel incomplete without it.”

— Crystal B.

Tell us about yourself: I'm a California native with Korean roots, marketing professional residing in San Francisco, and an enthusiastic person who loves sharing things (especially food!) I'm on a never ending pursuit to satisfy my crazy sweet tooth and to try everything at least once.

What inspires you to be gr8? Life! We each have one life, and we will never have this current moment/hr/day/month again so why shouldn't we aim to make it the gr8est moment that it can be? I try to always have a positive attitude and passionately dive into whatever interests me. My enthusiasm for life inspires me to be gr8. On a side note, to make our life gr8, we've gotta be fueled by gr8ness, right? Well, I choose gr8nola. Of course cookies, hot cheetos and milk tea are some of my other favorite foods, but for a healthy but yummy, and super easy snack option, I love gr8nola! 

What's your gr8nola story? I realized my love for gr8nola on a Saturday morning when I found myself wishing I was at work because of the gr8nola we have stocked in our office kitchen. Why do I love it so much? It tastes so good, but it's only sweetened with honey and stevia!!! *mind blown*. If you don't know what stevia is, hurry and google it. It's a completely natural zero calorie sweetener! I know... there are negative connotations with "0 cal sweeteners" such as headaches and bad gas but this ain't no artificial Splenda shiz!! Stevia is the real deal natural sweetener! 

After finding out the wholesome ingredients but also amaaaazing taste, I started eating gr8nola everyday. Every. dang. day. No lie. The world must know about the goodness of gr8nola!! My diabetic grandmother snacks on it, my grandpa shares it with his hiking buddies, and I eat gr8nola every day because I low-key feel incomplete without it. You probably think I'm crazy for singing praises about gr8nola but this love is so real. I haven't been in love, but I imagine it to be something like this. Taste it to believe in the gr8ness!
