Best Natural Food Line: Clif Bars (and Wines)
Often admired as a model sustainable and socially responsible business, Clif Bars have come off the trail and have gone mainstream. Their lighter Luna bars for women are now available in mini snack sizes, and new Luna Protein ups the fill factor (but is still under 200 calories). There's a natural high-protein Builder's Bar for weightlifters, a sweet and salty treat called Mojo and the new C Bar, made "with only a handful of ingredients." The so-called Clif Family Winery and Farm recently opened in California, with plans for a sustainable vineyard. (Available widely and at amazon.com.)
