You’re exhausted. You’ve just come home from working all day at your job, but you can’t rest. There’s still dinner to make and a load of clothes to pop into the washer. You grab a delicious high-protein bar and before you know it, you feel energized enough to carry on.

Created by Michelle Gospic, owner and CEO of The Healthy Nut Cafe, situated at 624 Leila Ave. in Garden City Square, these health bars are made of wholesome products like flax seeds, green tea, peanut butter, Chocolate or vanilla. Some other flavours include almond butter, prairie berry and one they call Tri, which is aimed at those seeking keto, vegan or gluten-free foods. Also, these products contain antioxidant nutrients you may not obtain from your everyday diet.

Gospic invented the protein-rich bars a few years ago, and they enabled Gospic’s daughter, Danica Marincil, to nourish her body while she endured chemo treatments to fight Stage 2 Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Now in remission, Marincil is an active participant in the business and says she is highly conscious of the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Marincil, a hospitality and hotel management graduate, focuses on customer satisfaction and said she is prepared to do anything “the boss throws at me.”

She said the idea for the business was formulated in 2020, during the COVID-19 epidemic and perfected over the past couple of years, when the company signed up with Sobey’s and Safeway stores.

The bars, which contain 13 to 18 grams of protein, are freshly manufactured on site. Kids of all ages can benefit from this nutritious family snack and they are also consumed by athletes..

The Healthy Nut Cafe also offers prepared lunches, hot and cold lattes, smoothies, healthy bites and gelati in assorted flavours. Products can also be ordered by calling 204-334-1088 or online at
