Nature's Bakery Community

Life’s An Adventure – Jackie Paaso

It's late December and winter has hit the Tahoe area in full force. Soon I'll be hitting the road again to start the my travel's on the Freeride World Tour! I'm very excited to have been able to connect with the Nature's Bakery community before my travels have begun for the 2012/13 winter season.

Jackie Paaso

I'm Jackie Paaso, a professional freeskier and one of the newest member's of the Nature's Bakery team. I consider home North Lake Tahoe, CA although my travels take me all over the globe for the majority of the year. I love exploring the outdoors and my favorite mode or transportation to do so is my skis. I compete, I film, I coach and I help spread the importance of traveling safely in the mountains.

Touring in Sweden

When asked what it is that I do I start with, "I'm a professional skier." Simple answer but it doesn't exactly cover the type of skiing I really love to do. I'm not a racer or a park skier, I consider myself a big mountain skier. I spent my childhood competing in mogul skiing and I think something was always missing. I was outdoors enjoying the snow but it was the same run over and over again. Left, right, left, right, jump .... left, right, left, right, you get the idea. When I moved out to Tahoe about eight years ago I instantly fell in love with the Sierra's! It wasn't the groomed trails, race courses or parks that caught my attention it was the ungroomed slopes, powder skiing and finding myself at the top of a mountain that didn't always have a lift taking you to the top. I love exploring the backcountry but I also love challenging myself and in big mountains I find all the challenges I need. Navigating sluff, jumping cliffs, hiking to the top, accessing snow conditions you name it.

I Am Pro Snow

I'm a Pro Snow Ambassador as well as a fundraiser for charities like the High Five's Foundation

S.A.F.E. A.S. Women's snow safety clinic

I'm very excited to be the newest member of the Nature's Bakery team and to have to the opportunity to represent a great product with great people behind it! You can check back here in the future to follow my travels and updates from now on! Happy Holiday's and enjoy the outdoors responsibly!

Why Not You?

My goal is to inspire…not because I have won awards, not because I am special, but because I am just like you.


Running with the best in college.

I have felt the many different struggles at a young age, things that were very tough experiences for a kid in high school to go through.  My home life was fractured to say the least.  In my situation, the way out of my small town was to earn a scholarship and nothing less.  So when I was a junior, I...

Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!


Have you ever had a Rudy moment? I did and it feels positively amazing. I highly recommend it.

Remember the based-on-a-true-story movie Rudy where a short, athletically challenged young man puts his heart, soul, body and prayers into becoming a Notre Dame football player – despite the fact that everyone under the sun told him he’d never make it? Well, my Rudy moment happened late this fall out on the tennis court.

I have been a very lopsided tennis player for years. My two-handed backhand has been a weapon. My...

Identity Crisis

As a full-time student, the time period from mid-November until Christmas is always the most hectic.  Test upon test are lined up, and the term papers that students put off for months lead to countless all nighters and caffeine addictions on par with those of junkies.  For me, this is no different.  This semester’s term project consists of a twelve-page report on Indian Gaming.  Due on the last day of class, I have done absolutely no research on the topic to this point, setting myself up for a rather painful couple weeks ahead.  On top of this schoolwork, my...

13,000 Miles, 50 States and My First Big Adventure

Well hello there, nice to meet you - my name's Anna. I can’t thank you enough for stopping by on this, my very first Nature’s Bakery blog. I’ll give it to you straight – I’m pretty darn excited. So, where to start? Politics? The economy? Ancient history? How's about we begin with a few confessions…

Here's one - my passport doesn't look the same as yours. I drink a lot of tea. I put unnecessary ‘u’s in ‘honour’ and ‘flavour’, and although the colors of my country’s flag are of the same hue as your own, the shapes are all...

Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars – A Kosher Certified Product

Hello. It’s Andrew again, Director of Marketing for Nature’s Bakery. Today’s topic originates from one of the inquiries that we received on our Nature’s Bakery Website regarding the term “Kosher”.  I thought this would be a great opportunity to address “Kosher” and the commonly asked questions surrounding it, such as:

  • Are Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars Kosher
  • Who is the Kosher certifying body for Nature’s Bakery?
  • What does the Kosher Certification symbol look like?
  • Where is your Kosher Symbol on your Fig Bars?

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “Kosher” as:

1. a: sanctioned by Jewish law; especially : ritually...
