Coco Polo Chocolate

Coco Polo Chocolate

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Gluten Free

This is a new Whole Journey FAVORITE! This revolutionary chocolate bar is sweetened with stevia and non-GMO erythritol. This chocolate has no sugar, no additives, and no bitter after taste... just nutrient-dense, delicious chocolate! There is nothing else like this on the market. We salute Coco Polo for being the pioneers of this naturally sweetened chocolate. Even if you don’t have to avoid sugar completely, these stevia-sweetened bars from Coco Polo are an excellent way to get your chocolate fix. Raw cacao is rich in antioxidants, magnesium and theobromine - a natural mood lifter. Coco Polo chocolate bars come in a variety of flavors. Our favorite is dark chocolate with roasted almonds. All dark chocolate bars are 70% cacao. Coco Polo most recently came out with the first version of stevia sweetened milk chocolate. This choclate bar is 39% Cocoa, and is the first of its kind made in the U.S. It is made with milk, so no sugar is added. It's important to distinguish the difference between “no sugar added” and “sugar free” as the sugar free chocolate on the market today is often sweetened with artificial sweeteners. In this milk chocolate bar, the only source of sugar in it is the milk. We love this company and everything they stand for. All bars are gluten and soy free. 5+ Stars!

Dr. Tungs

Dr. Tungs

Dietary Needs:
None

Tongue scraping is a powerful way to detox the body and can be one of the best ways to remove bacteria in the mouth that cause bad breath. This is the type of gadget that you use once, and you will never again go without. It can help improve taste and slow the growth of plaque in the mouth. Dr. Tung's is made of stainless steel, making cleaning your tongue comfortable, quick, and effective. We recommend putting it in the dishwasher once a week to keep it nice and clean. This has great oral benefits for a small price. It is used and recommended by dentists and hygienists nationwide. You can pick one up at most health food stores. An absolutely essential tool for anyone going through an anti-candida protocol.

Justin's Milk Chocolate Peanut Candy Bar

Justin's Milk Chocolate Peanut Candy Bar

Dietary Needs:
Gluten Free

Meet the new Snickers Bar. With Justin's Milk Chocolate Peanut Candy Bar, there is absolutely no reason to ever eat a Snicker's bar again. This candy bar is made with high quality natural ingredients. All ingredients are organic and include milk chocolate, caramel made from brown rice syrup, sugar and condensed milk, marshmallow cream and dry roasted peanuts. It's not exactly your perfect health food, but it's nice to see a sweet treat like this available without any artificial flavors, transfats, additives or preservatives. Snicker's contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil, which is HORRIBLE for your health. We will always support a company like Justin's Nut Butter because of their dedication to sourcing organic and sustainably harvested, local ingredients. They get four stars because of the sugar,  however, they ROCK!

Justin's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Dietary Needs:
Gluten Free

Talk about an ideal upgrade from the chocolate candy that is lining the check out stand at the supermarket. Justin's has made a peanut butter cup that is all organic, made with high quality, natural ingredients. And these taste a-mazing! All ingredients are organic, and include dark chocolate, peanut butter, evaporated cane sugar, cocoa butter and vanilla. We will always support a company like Justin's Nut Butter because of their dedication to sourcing organic and sustainability harvested, local ingredients. These get 4 out of 5 stars because they contain sugar, however Justin's Peanut Butter Cups are a HUGE, and super smart upgrade to a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

Bikram Balance

Bikram Balance

Dietary Needs:
None

Green's First has teamed up Bikram Choudhury from Bikram yoga to create a powerful antioxidant fruit and vegetable powdered drink that is a great way to rehydrate after a hot yoga class or vigorous exercise. We are big on balancing pH and alkalizing the body. Bikram Balance is a smart supplement when it comes to getting in the greens. It provides organic fruits and vegetables and 49 other ingredients that provide natural, real food electrolytes and alkalinity to the reserve of the body. They have included some powerful superfoods such as barley grass, chlorella, spirulina, and blueberries. These ingredients are high in chlorophyll, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants. This is also an effective way to promote electrolyte balance.  Due to all of the amazing greens, it will boost pH. We think this is one of the best tasting green powder on the market with a sweet and minty flavor. It can be mixed with water for a quick pick-me-up. We still have not heard back on sourcing so until then we give them 4.0 stars.
