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

Julian Bakery has created nutritious and delicious Paleo Bread! This Paleo Bread was inspired by the Paleo lifestyle having a diet free of all grains. With the diet based on lean meats, vegetables, seafood, and nuts, Julian Bakery’s Paleo Bread will fulfill any bread craving while being completely grain, starch, and yeast free! This Almond variety has only six simple ingredients: purified water, blanched almonds, egg whites, psyllium, organic apple cider vinegar, and baking soda. Because this variety of Paleo Bread has almonds in it, it brings a wide spectrum of health benefits. Almonds are great for the brain, heart, and skin. Almonds also help regulate cholesterol levels, are great for weight loss, high in fiber, boost energy levels, and are diabetic friendly! Low in calories and carbohydrates, Paleo bread is high in protein with 9g per slice! Try using this bread when making sandwiches or simply as your morning toast.

Nectresse

Nectresse

Dietary Needs:
None

Another no calorie sweetener is on the shelves. Nectresse uses Monk Fruit extract but also included is erythritol, sugar, and molasses. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that is used in many products such as gums, low carbohydrate foods, and low calorie sweeteners. Sugar alcohols can have negative side effects such as bloating and gas. Erythritol looks and tastes just likes sugar but with no calories.  It is also known that erythritol comes from corn and unfortunately most of the corn in America is GMO corn. Although Nectresse is marketed as being natural fruit sugar, make sure to pay attention to the other added ingredients. Nectresse is way better than Splenda or any other artificial sweeteners so we definitely see this product as a step in the right direction!

Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips

Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips

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

Beanfieds Bean and Rice chips are better than your average tortilla chip. They are made without any GMO ingredients and are also corn free and gluten free. It is important to note that these chips are made with white rice rather than brown rice which means it has a higher glycemic index. Beanfields are also made with navy beans and black beans giving it a fiber content of 4g per serving. The unsalted and sea salt flavors are desirable because no sugar is added.  These chips have less saturated fat and salt than regular tortilla chips; however, they are fried in sunflower or safflower oil. We really like the taste and crunch of these chips!

NuNaturals Peppermint Stevia

NuNaturals Peppermint Stevia

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

We love NuNaturals stevia products and now there is a peppermint flavor! Stevia is very sweet and therefore only small amounts are needed compared to regular sugar. NuNuturals uses high quality peppermint to make this stevia flavor bold and minty. This brand is superior in the fact that their stevia products don’t leave a metallic aftertaste like other stevias do. NuNaturals Peppermint Stevia is great for a minty spin in our raw chocolate truffle recipe! Also, try making mint hot chocolate with it, yum!
