GORP Star of the Month - Kristy!

Kristy has been with GORP for a few years! She one of the amazing production ladies - mixing GORP, hand rolling bars and packaging so that GORP Clean Energy Bars end up in your tummy! She's always so friendly and caring - we all love when she's working!

Here are some facts about Kristy:

  1. What's your favourite way to be active?

Some of my favorite ways to be active are walking, strength training, biking and enjoying the outdoors with my family.

  1. If you could have a super power, what would it be?

Ok.. If I had a superpower, I think I would want to be able to fly.  Of course it would be pretty cool, but just think of all the time it could save... :) 

  1. What's your favourite GORP flavour and why?

My favorite GORP flavor is PB & Raspberry, but Cocoa, Hemp & Almond is definitely a close second.

  1. Why do you love working at GORP? 

I love working at GORP because it's so fun working with great people and making a great product!  It also doesn't hurt that the production area always smells so good :) 

5. Kristy shares her fave healthy recipe:

One of my favorite super-easy summer grilling recipes : 

Lime Chicken Marinade

1/2 cup fresh lime juice 

1/4 cup olive oil 

1 tsp. fresh rosemary 

1 tsp. thyme 

1/2 cloves garlic 

Marinate 4 large chicken breasts with the above ingredients and grill on the BBQ. Enjoy!

Thank you so much for working with us Kristy - GORP wouldn't be great without YOU!

GORP Star of the Month - Sarah!

At GORP, we LOVE to share the LOVE. And we are so grateful for each individual that enters into our lives - look at me getting all smushy... Anyway... As you may or may not know, all of our GORP bars are made in small batches, by hand! We thought we'd introduce you to some of the amazing people that make your GORP Bars taste so yummy!

Check out our first GORP Star of the month!

Sarah has been with GORP for about a year now. She always brings her smile and witty, hilarious comments and songs with her. For example, while packaging one day, our packaging machine was acting up, making it difficult to get the job done. So Sarah sang:

(to the tune of 'Rude' by Magic!) "Why you godda be so rude? You godda package it anyway. Package that GORP. Package it anyway..."

Can you see why it's hard not to laugh around her?!

Here are some facts about Sarah:

  1. What's your favourite way to be active?

Down Hill Skiing!!! And working in my friend's 1.5 acre garden for her veggie stand. 

  1. If you could have a super power, what would it be?

I wish I could sprinkle peace & love dust on people so they were kind to one another. And maybe hug a tree. 

  1. What's your favourite GORP flavour and why?

Cocoa Hemp & Almond!!! It's cocoa-y goodness tricks me into thinking I'm eating a chocolate bar. It's also my go-to bar for "that time of the month" when I'm craving junk food. I'm satisfied and don't feel the post-guilt of what I just ate. 

  1. Why do you love working at GORP? Or share a funny GORP story.

I love working at GORP because of all the amazing people that I work with. Everyone makes you feel apart of one big family. Their good energies constantly swirl around our work place and makes it easy for me to keep a smile on my face. GORP IS the best company I have ever worked for. And I love my boss! She is so passionate, very attentive, she spoiles us rotten and has the best laugh!  She is the definition of community. 

  1. Share a healthy recipe or workout 

Gorp has changed my life-style in a GOOD way! I don't have a recipe but I've learnt the importance of eating clean natural foods and staying away from processed and high sugar foods and drinks. I've learnt it's best to make life style changes than go on a diet. 

Thank you so much for working with us Sarah - Someone thinks you're awesome... and it's US!
