black woman shopping 3

SACRAMENTO – Whole Foods is giving area women something to “think” about this Mother’s Day.

thinkThin LLC, the producers of popular weight management bars, will be giving special thanks to moms all over the country this week as part of Whole Foods gifting program in celebration of Mother’s Day. Taking place at participating Whole Foods Markets on Thursday, May 9, the first 50 moms who show up to shop will receive an exclusive gift bag, including thinkThin’s popular 0g sugar 20g protein bars, thinkThin Crunch and its newest bar thinkThin Divine. A personal note from CEO and founder, Lizanne Falsetto, will also be included.

“As a mom of two myself, I know how difficult it can be to eat right while maintaining a busy schedule,” said Falsetto. “thinkThin was created for the active woman like me—a nutritious and delicious way to sustain us throughout the day. We are thrilled to partner with Whole Foods and commemorate moms nationwide.”

thinkThin’s mission is to change the way consumers think about diet by educating on the movement of weight wellness—a state of physical and emotional well-being. Rather than focusing on fitting into a certain size or worrying about a number on the scale, weight wellness is about living active and well—creating a balanced lifestyle that nourishes longevity.

A partner with Whole Foods for over a decade, last month thinkThin pledged full support of the natural grocery chain’s commitment to GMO (genetically modified organism) transparency. With the support and guidance of Whole Foods, thinkThin was able to achieve non-GMO status on its fruit and nut thinkThin Crunch line.

Local Whole Food locations include 4315 Arden Way, Sacramento; 500 First Street, Davis and 1001 Galleria Boulevard in Roseville. For more information, call (916) 488-2800, (530) 750-2266 or (916) 781-5300 or visit
