Serendipity: Luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for.
I’ve always found the best things when I’m not looking for them. This occurred not too long ago for me in the form of a brownie. While shopping at Whole Foods on my lunch one day, I decided to pick up a sweet treat to “hold me over” until I grabbed some lunch.
Greyston Bakery’s “Brown Sugar Blondie” is my new favorite brownie, EVER!
I also love that the company that produces this small piece of “foodie nirvana” has an additional mission: giving back to the community. When you purchase a brownie from Whole Foods, 1% of brownie sales go to Whole’s Planet Foundation’s project to support poverty alleviation through micro-credit loans across 57 countries.

About Greyston (as told on their website):
PathMaking is both a philosophy and a program at Greyston. It is our belief that individuals can be supported to achieve “wholeness,” a foundation needed for them to find and follow their own path. PathMaking brings attention to the mind, body, heart and spirit. We don’t simply provide a job, or enroll someone in a program and call it a day – we work with every individual at Greyston, whether they are a client, an employee or a board member to become attuned to their own self-worth and move successfully down their own path.
We’ve developed assessment and goal-setting tools, which show individuals how to have a healthy, well-balanced life. This paves the path toward self-sufficiency and enables them to accomplish their goals.
They also have other brownie flavors available at Whole Foods and on Greyston’s website. After you try one, leave a comment and let me know what you think!
