Teeccino Herbal Coffee Tea Bags

Teeccino Herbal Coffee Tea Bags

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

We've been recommending Teeccino for years and they just keep coming out with more ways to help us do that. Teeccino's newest product is very creative, a Tee-bag that tastes like coffee without any caffeine. This takes convenience to a whole new level. Teecino tea bags blend carob, dates, figs barley and almonds which create a robust and full bodied cup of “coffee” that is alkalizing (versus acidic like coffee) and improves elimination.  The Tee-bags come individually wrapped in a variety of flavors including vanilla nut, hazelnut, almond amaretto and french roast. What we love most about Teeccino products is that they are full of antioxidants and contain potassium and soluble fiber which makes this an incredibly healthy alternative to coffee.

Sweet Tree Coconut Sugar

Sweet Tree Coconut Sugar

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

This is another great upgrade from the refined white stuff called sugar and even from brown sugar as well. Coconut palm trees are known world wide for being the “tree of life” due to the variety of ways the tree can be used. SweetTree Organic Coconut Sugar is a minimally processed, unbleached natural sweetener made from the nectar of the coconut palm tree. Coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index than cane sugar and produces an average of 50-75% more sugar per acre than sugar cane with using less than one fifth of the soil nutrients and water. Coconut sugar is composed of about 75% sucrose followed by glucose and fructose. It ranks 35 out of 100 on the glycemic index, where table sugar is 100. Coconut sugar is high in potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron and is a natural source of the vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C. When purchasing coconut palm sugar be sure to double check the ingredients because many on the market today are mixed with cane sugar and other malt-based ingredients. Try this coconut sugar in our flourless black bean brownies! Delicious!

Sunshine Burgers

Sunshine Burgers

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

This is an awesome pure, clean, organic, gluten free, wheat free, soy free vegan burger. So often you will find soy in Garden Burgers and Boca Burgers so thank goodness for Sunshine Burgers!! The ingredients include ground raw sun-flower seeds, Lundberg Family Farms brown rice, carrots, herbs and sea salt. That's it! No additives, fillers or junk that you find in other veggie burgers. The protein in these sunflower based burgers all begins in rich organic soil. The taste is great, however some clients report that the texture is a bit to soft. We love supporting a company like this one who is USDA certified organic, non-GMO, and supporting a variety of charities and organizations to become a cleaner and greener world. You will always find Sunshine Burgers stocked in our freezer for a quick meal. Whole Journey Select product through and through!

So Delicious Coconut Creamer

So Delicious Coconut Creamer

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

Thank goodness for this product! This coconut creamer is ideal for people trying to cut out dairy and soy in their diets. We love this product because you don't feel cheated whatsoever. It's creamy, delicious and available in the original flavor as well as hazelnut (though we prefer original because it's lower in sugar). One tablespoon serving has 4 g of sugar, which makes them loose a star. We would like to see them come out with a sugar-free version that is naturally sweetened. So Delicious is a company that sources high quality organic products. They are also members of the Food Trade Sustainability Leadership Association (FTSLA), a non-profit trade association dedicated to helping the organic food trade transition to more sustainable practices. Thank you for making this product So Delicious!

Shelton's poultry all began with two turkeys and two people in 1924. Today,  Shelton's has grown into the largest Natural Poultry marketer in the country. With the motto of  “Our chickens don't do drugs,” they are huge advocates of free range all natural poultry; chicken, turkey and duck without the use of antibiotics or artificial growth stimulants.
