CalNaturale Cabernet Sauvignon

CalNaturale Cabernet Sauvignon

Dietary Needs:


From Paso Robles, CalNaturale represents high quality and sustainable winemaking. All grapes are certified organic, which means that they were never treated with pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Organic wine is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Another reason that sets organic wine apart from regular wine is that it contains less sulfites. Sulfites are salts or sulfurous acids that occur naturally in many wines. It is vary rare to find a wine that does not have sulfites, however MORE sulfites are generally added to regular wine to help in the preservation process. 100% Organic wines are made with no added sulfites. The less sulfites a wine contains, the healthier it will be for your body (and your cheeks won't be as rosy!)We love that this company has carried their sustainable farming practices all the way through to the packaging. CalNaturale comes in Tetra-Pak flexible packaging which is very eco-friendly, utilizing less than half the greenhouse gasses, waste and energy in producing and transporting our product.  We taste-tested this Cab and found it to be heavy and very full- bodied. What we really love is that the packaging has half the carbon footprint of wines in glass bottles, although we aren't sure that people will love drinking wine out of a box....might remind them of their college days.

Bumble Bar

Bumble Bar

Dietary Needs:


The Bumble Bar is a sesame seed bar that contains an abundance of Omega 3 (EFAs), which we recommend all the time because they help to maintain healthy cell structure in the body, protect against heart disease, cancer, arthritis and much more. Sesame seeds are also one of the best sources of calcium.  They contain THREE times as much calcium as milk. Other ingredients include organic brown rice, syrup, organic flax seeds, vanilla, organic peanuts, sea salt, and vitamin E. All bars are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, and certified organic. They are a good source of fiber as well. Sadly, this bar is sweetened with evaporated cane juice which drop their rating by one star. We would love to see them come out with a product with just brown rice syrup. All ingredients are free of GMO's.

Bragg's Vinaigrette Dressing

Bragg's Vinaigrette Dressing

Dietary Needs:


This is likely the healthiest dressing you will find on supermarket shelves. They use purified water, organic raw apple cider vinegar and organic olive oil. Many commercial salad dressings add sugar and use either soybean or canola oil to save money. Olive oil is a wonderful, healthy oil to use in salad dressings and we wish more brands would convert to it. The only ingredient in this product we are on the fence about is the liquid amino acids because they are non-fermented soy. However, they come from organic, non-GMO healthy soybeans, which is a bonus.

Bragg's Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Bragg's Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Dietary Needs:


Every household in America should have a bottle of this in the fridge. It is truly a healing and near magical substance. Bragg's raw apple cider vinegar is nature's best cure for acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It can help stop acid reflux within 3 weeks of taking 1 tablespoon daily mixed with 4 ounces of water by shifting the acid-alkaline balance of your body chemistry to neutral (hence how it neurtralizes acid). Raw apple cider vinegar is the only vinegar that alkalizes the human body, whereas all of other vinegars are acidic. Another enormous benefit of it is that it helps our bodies to produce more hydrochloric acid which is so essential for detoxification and digestion. After the age of 50, we produce less and less HCL so we need to add it back and this is an easy way to do that by simply working it in your diet. We also love apple cider vinegar to draw toxins out of the skin so feel free to add 1/2 cup to a warm bath for skin issues. Bragg's is our favorite company because their acv is raw, unheated, unfiltered, unpasteurized and organic. It also contains the "mother" of the vinegar, which occurs naturally as strand-like enzymes of connected protein molecules. If we had a double select rating, they would get it!!!
