Garden of Eatin’ Blue Corn Chips

Garden of Eatin’ Blue Corn Chips

Gardenof Eatin Blue Tortilla Chips have only three ingredients; Organicblue corn, expeller pressed oleic safflower and/or sunflower oil, seasalt. That is what we like to see. After all, there is no need formore. We really like that they use safflower or sunflower oil overcanola or soybean oil. Blue corn is healthier than white or yellowcorn in that it has 20% more protein and contains the amino acidlysine and the antioxidant anthocyanin. A very goodchoice for those of you who love to snack on chips and guacamole orchips and salsa.

Garden Green Garbanzo Beans

Garden Green Garbanzo Beans

Dietary Needs:


This company has spent the past 10 years engineering, brainstorming and introducing a brand new food into the marketplace. Green Garbanzos are fresh picked garbanzo beans which are still GREEN and LIVING (not our standard tan color we are used to seeing). The beans are harvested and then flash frozen to preserve the unique flavor and nutrient profile. Garden Green Garbanzos are highly nutritious and high in fiber, iron, protein, folate, Vitamins A and C as well as phytonutrients (anti-cancer). Originating on a small family farm in Idaho, the company is very focused on sustainability and earth friendly farming.  Garden Green Garbanzo plants have the ability to replenish atmospheric nitrogen, depleted by other crops, into the soil, thus reducing the need for fertilizers for Garden Green Garbanzos in crop rotation. These beans are carefully nurtured without the use of insecticides. Available at Whole Foods. Try impressing your friends with the recipe 'garbanzomole' which is printed on the back of the package. 5 stars all the way!

We were so excited to discover a polenta with quinoa because it makes it so much healthier!

It is preserved with a natural preservative tartaric acid derrived from organic compounds which gives this poleta a 9 month shelf life so no need for refrigeration. This is a creative and fantastic side dish that is easy to heat up on the stove top. Mix it with wild mushrooms and thyme or bake it with marinara sauce and basil.
