Purity Farms Ghee

Purity Farms Ghee

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Ghee is recognized by Indian Ayurvedic medicine as being the best fat a person can eat and absolutely essential to the diet. Ghee is clarified butter meaning that all impurities, milk solids, and moisture are removed. Purity Farms has grass fed, organic, and pasture-raised cows that they make butter from to make ghee. Omega 3 and Omega 9 essential fatty acids are present in ghee as well as the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. These fatty acids and vitamins are what make ghee useful for digestive aid, skin health, and energy. Because ghee is so pure, when food is cooked in it, the vitamins and nutrients penetrate deeper into the body to give the most benefit. Ghee is a very healing food and can help nourish permeability in the small intestine. Ghee tastes delicious and is yummy to melt over popcorn, omelets, pasta, baking and is safe to cook with at high heat.

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

Nutritional yeast makes for an unique and nutrient dense addition to savory meals and snacks.

Bragg Nutritional Yeast flakes are vegan, gluten-free, non GMO, unsweetened, and very low in sodium and fat. We suggest this product to clients because it is a really good source of B vitamins which help aid in metabolism, support the liver and are known to increase energy. These flakes also contain all essential amino acids. Nutritional yeast flakes have a nutty flavor that can be used as a taste similar to cheese. Try adding these flakes to our Kale Chip recipe or use in replacement of cheese on our Paleo Pizza. These are also tasty in salad dressings, soups, or just sprinkled on top of your favorite savory foods.  Nutritional Yeast flakes are a wonderful way to enhance your foods with flavor and nutrients.

Eden Organic Buckwheat

Eden Organic Buckwheat

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

Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, meaning it is gluten-free! This superior grain is high in fiber and provides all the essential amino acids making it a complete protein. It is also low in fat, sodium, and cholesterol. This Eden Organic brand is great because the buckwheat is milled to remove the hard hull but the whole grain remains intact. Buckwheat can be used as porridge, in salads, soups, as a stuffing for peppers or tomatoes, or just as a simple whole grain entrée. This is a very versatile, mild flavored whole grain that takes approximately 20 minutes to cook. Eden Organics is independently owned and the oldest organic and natural food company in North America!

La Tourangelle Grape Seed Oil

La Tourangelle Grape Seed Oil

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

When it comes to high heat cooking, grapeseed oil is a Whole Journey favorite. This oil has a mild flavor and a high 'smoke point' making it a smart choice for any hot heat saute, baking, cooking or grilling. Grapeseed oil is the oil extracted from grape seeds, a byproduct of the wine making and jam/juice industries. It is a polyunsaturated oil, which normally would mean that it isn't suitable for cooking. But grapeseed has less impurities, and therefore less volatility, than other polyunsaturated oils. It's important to note that not all grapeseed oils are created equal.  Because grape seeds contain very little oil, grapeseed oils are rarely expeller extracted (which is the preferred, non-chemical method for extracting oils when cold-pressing isn't an option.) Instead, a method called hexane extraction is often used. (Hexane is a solvent that many people would prefer not to be used in their food production.) Look for for expeller extracted grapeseed oils if you wish to avoid hexane. La Tourangelle is a brand we trust that does use the expeller press method for their grapeseed oil. Originally, the production of these gourmet oils started in France where each village had a mill which roasted and extracted the oil from nuts gathered by local farmers. La Tourangelle is one of just a handful of these remaining mills that keep this tradition alive, and has successfully recreated the spirit of this traditional French mill in Woodland, CA. We appreciate this companies quality and tradition of producing such fantastic products.
