Bob's Red Mill Organic Quinoa

Bob's Red Mill Organic Quinoa

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Organic Quinoa Grain is a high-protein grain cultivated by Incan tribes in the Andes Mountains of South America. Grown in Ecuador, this mild powerhouse grain is quickly becoming a staple in healthy diets. Quinoa is gluten free and can be substituted for rice in most recipes. The best part is that it only takes 20 minutes to cook! We often suggest putting quino in a salad since it is such a good good source of protein. We love this company because it isn't just about whole grains. They have a full line of gluten free products. Their products can seem expensive for the quantity you are getting, but for the quality we think it is worth it.

Sambazon AcaĆ­ Smoothie Packs

Sambazon AcaĆ­ Smoothie Packs

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

We LOVE this product! Acaípronounced (ah-sigh-ee) is a super yummy super food. These littlepurple immune boosting berries are found atop 50 foot palm treesalong the banks of the the Amazon. Acaí is loaded with a rich sourceof antioxidants called anthocyanins (these are the samephytochemicals that are found in red wine and are known for havingvery healthy benefits.) This berry truly is amazing considering itcontains high levels of anti-oxidants (2x of what blueberries have),contains high levels of dietary fiber and contains high levels ofessential amino acids and trace minerals Something surprising aboutthis berry is that it has healthy unsaturated fats and it has a fattyacid ratio similar to olive oil and it's protein profile is similarto that of a egg! Açaí is also known to be a low glycemic food andabout half the glycemic index of an orange. Sambazon's efforts insustainability are significant and have been recognized all over theworld. We recommend the unsweetened smoothie packs since there is noadded sugar. T0 make your own 'acai bowl' blend two unsweetenedsmoothie packs with a banana (to sweeten naturally.) Sprinkle rawcacao, hemp seeds and almonds on top for a healthy delicious snack.

We love this lotion! This is moisturizer with SPF 15 loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants. The 'signature ingredient' in this product is Magnesium Ascorbal Phosphate which is a form of vitamin C that is readily utilized by the skin cells to protect against damaging free radicals. This form of vitamin C can also aid in collagen and elastin production. Other ingredients include aloe, hyaluronic acid and Rosehip oil which makes this product very hydrating and refreshing. This company values sustainability and their office and warehouse are 100% solar powered. This is definitely a business that is forward thinking and promotes long-term solutions to environmental problems. Avalon is an affordable product line and you will pay about the same price for this moisturizer as you would at the drug store.
