Arrowhead Mills Organic Sesame Tahini

Arrowhead Mills Organic Sesame Tahini

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

Sesame seeds maybe the oldest condiment known to man, making our human food scene in the 1600s. They are high in copper, manganese, tryptophan, calcium and magnesium. Arrowhead Mills Tahini, is made from mechanically hulled (no chemicals) Latin American sesame seeds. You can use this pure, creamy, delicious tahini as a spread on toast or crackers. You can also use it to make hummus, gravy or creamy dressings which is very helpful to get the creaminess without using a dairy product. Arrowhead Mills uses a simple mechanical process free of caustic sodas, salts, and chemicals to naturally separate the oil for this product. We definitely suggest you weave this product into your diet! Check out our recipes page for ideas on how to do that. Our only other wish here is that Arrowhead Mills would become non-GMO project certified and also get into social consciousness by supporting the Amerinca Farmland Trust, an organization that raises awareness and funds to preserve land for sustainable farming. They are certainly a big enough company to have a great influence in that regard.

Muir Glen Organic Salsa

Muir Glen Organic Salsa

Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Their medium salsa boasts a perfect mix of heat, spice and organic tomato taste. Organic ingredients, including cilantro (which helps eliminate heavy metals from the body), lime juice and vinegar, add wonderful layers of flavor. We love that they don’t use any sweetener, which is rare these days. We also like that they use naturally derived preservatives. All ingredients are organic which makes it a great choice for store bought salsa.

Blue Sky Organic Soda

Blue Sky Organic Soda

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

Blue Sky soda is all natural with no preservatives, no artificial colors, no caffeine (which is huge) and only natural flavors. Much better than regular soda but they do use sugar (cane sugar). They could improve the health factor by using a natural sweetener like stevia, agave or xylitol like Zevia does. Drink it sparingly and as a treat from time to time. Soda and carbonation thin the lining of the gut.
