Food for Life Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Tortillas

Food for Life Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Tortillas

Dietary Needs:
Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic

Sometimes we think we single-handedly keep these guys in business with how much we recommend these tortillas. Ezekiel tortillas are sprouted so that means that the body digests them more like a vegetable vs. a carbohydrate and that the gluten and soy in them is tolerable to the human body (because it can assimilate the nutrients). When six grains and legumes are sprouted and combined, a complete protein is created that closely parallels the protein found in milk and eggs. Ezekiel Tortillas are rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and natural fiber with no added fat. They are an easy, convenient way to incorporate whole grains into your diet to help balance blood sugar and to feel help you feel full longer. When bread goes out the door for our candida-cleansing clients, this product becomes a real staple for them. We suggest heating them up for a few seconds on each side before eating them.

Big Tree Farms Handcrafted Balinese Sea Salt

Big Tree Farms Handcrafted Balinese Sea Salt

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

We are big fans of sea salt at The Whole Journey because sea salt contains essential trace minerals that match the mineral profile of our blood. Many Americans are mineral deficient from stress (tired adrenals) and poor diet so sea salt is a must-have staple on the condiment shelf. Big Tree's sea salt comes from a remote black sand beach in northern Bali. Each production of this sea salt requires weeks of hand panning and grading to produce the perfect sized grain. This is a special artisan sea salt. We love that the folks at Big Tree maintain high ideals of environmental sustainability and cultural preservation and are proud to support this company.

Smart Chicken

Smart Chicken

Dietary Needs:
Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Chicken is most unclean meat available today because of what we have done to their food supply and because of factory farming. Be especially careful when eating out because that can be a big source of what we call polluted meat (chickens injected with hormones and those who eat feed containing antibiotics). Smart chicken birds are raised under strict USDA Certified Organic standards set forth by the Iowa Department of Agriculture Land Stewardship They are range, which means they have access to a natural outdoor environment. They are fed a 100% organic grain diet certified free of chemical agents and have no exposure to chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides. MBA Poultry has added the "Certified Humane Raised and Handled" label to their entire line of Organic Smart Chicken(R). This label certifies that Organic Smart Chicken(R) has been produced according to strict HFAC's* standards for humane. This is a great brand that you can trust. The highest of all quality chicken that you can find is pasture-raised, which means they lived a life exactly as nature intended from start to finish. This also means that those pasture raised chickens will have less fat and more protein because chickens are not vegetarians by nature. They eat bugs and worms so when they are farmed with only grain, a little something is missing. All and all, we are thrilled that Smart Chicken exists and that it is as widely available as it is.
