Blue Diamond Nut Thins

Blue Diamond Nut Thins

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

Eating gluten-free doesn't have to be boring or tasteless. Blue Diamond, our friends who make the almond milk, also make a number of varieties of their nut thins crackers. We like the taste of this cracker and love the fact that use high quality expeller-pressed safflower oil. This is a rice-based cracker with almond flour added to increase protein content. The last two ingredients are natural almond flavor and natural butter flavor. We aren't sure what that means exactly but hope it means no artificial flavors. Great to use with any dipping. We would be pysched if their ingredients were organic.

MRM Gluten Free Enzyme

MRM Gluten Free Enzyme

Dietary Needs:
None

Sensitivities to gluten and dairy proteins are common and can result in digestive discomfort and a dramatically lowered immune response. Avoiding specific foods (rye, wheat, barley, oats, dairy, etc.) is not always an option and when that is the case, we recommend using an enzyme to help your body assimilate nutrients. MRM’s Gluten FREE is an enzyme blend developed to assist the digestion of foods containing gluten and dairy proteins. Proteins consist of single or multiple polypeptide units, which are long chains of amino acids connected through peptide bonds. Peptides are short chains of amino acids that occur during the breakdown of polypeptides chains into amino acids. Sensitivity to rye, wheat, barley, and dairy can be attributed to the incomplete digestion of certain peptides found in gluten and dairy protein. These partially digested peptide fragments can lead to inflammation of the intestinal lining, bloating, malabsorption, and/or gut permeability. Supplementing with Gluten FREE can help you obtain vital nutrients when you eat these foods (which is only on rare occasion, we hope).

MRM Veggie Protein

MRM Veggie Protein

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

This is a new product from MRM. We are so happy that they came
out with a plant-based protein powder for our clients who are either
vegan or intolerant to eggs and whey. This is a good-tasting plant
protein powder rich in omega 3-6-9 essential fatty acids, essential
amino acids, digestive enzymes, vitamins, minerals, fiber and
antioxidants. It is easy-to-digest and great for blood sugar balance.
No artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives, which we love.
Available in chocolate and vanilla. Make sure if you are using a
plant-based protein powder that contains a grain like brown rice,
NOT to add fruit to it to ensure good digestion and proper food
combining. Have a look at the recipe section of our site for our
avocado smoothie recipe.

New Chapter Lifeshield Immunity

New Chapter Lifeshield Immunity

Dietary Needs:
None

Polysaccharides called beta-glucans are contained in medicinal mushrooms like reishi, maitake and shitake. Their primary function is to modulate the immune system by activating key cells that are part of the immune system's first line of defense. New Chapter's Mushrooms are high potency containing a minimum of 15% level of beta-glucans. Their mushrooms attain their full growth cycle and come from superior strains. We believe this product should be in every medicine cabinet in America to take at the very first sign of a cold or before a flight. We refer to it as nature's Airborne as it will boost your immunity by 300% after taking it. We take it when we are feeling run down or if someone else around us is sick, with amazing results. Found in all major health food stores and online. New Chapter is a fantastic company that produces products with superior quality.

Jay Robb Whey Protein

Jay Robb Whey Protein

Dietary Needs:
Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Over and over again, we suggest eating something with protein and healthy fat within one hour of waking to feed the adrenals. For our breakfast skippers or those who are not hungry in the morning, mixing a scoop of protein powder with coconut milk is a good choice. Jay Robb's Flavored Whey Protein comes from cold-processed cross-flow microfiltered whey protein isolate. It is from grass-fed, pasture-grazed cows not treated with rBGH (Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone). You'll get 25 Grams of protein in their Whey Isolate and 24 grams in their Whey Concentrate. It's fat free, has no artificial sweeteners no Casein No MSG and is gluten free. If you have food sensitivities then try the unflavored whey protein Isolate. For those avoiding all forms of dairy, Jay Robb's Egg white protein contains 24 Grams Of Protein Per Serving, is Lactose Free, has No Fat, No Cholesterol, No MSG, No Aspartame, No Acesulfame-K, No Sucralose, No Artificial Flavors, No Artificial Sweeteners, No Artificial Colors. We like how they are switching from those big plastic tubs to more eco-friendly packaging with packets. So much better for our precious environment.
