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.

Mary's Gone Crackers Double Chocolate Cookies

Mary's Gone Crackers Double Chocolate Cookies

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

Mary's Double Chocolate cookies are a big hit with our tribe. They blend a rich, fudgy, chocolate cookie with dark chocolate chips. Organic, gluten-free,  and low-glycemic. They use mostly palm sugar (except in their chocolate chips) which is a healthy low glycemic sweetener resembling the taste of brown sugar or butterscotch. We like this sweetener to avoid those dreaded blood sugar spikes. Thank you for Mary's for giving us another great product and chance at healthy, conscious eating. Mary's cookies are also available in chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, and ginger.

Food for Life Brown Rice Tortillas

Food for Life Brown Rice Tortillas

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

Food for Life gives us a delicious, healthy alternative to the white or wheat flour tortilla. The trick here is to heat them up. Just about 10 seconds on each side will make the tortilla more pliable, giving it that familiar consistency. These brown rice tortillas are loaded with fiber and b vitamins, delivered in a way that is nearly hypo-allergenic and highly nutritious. The ingredients are whole grain brown rice flour, filtered water, tapioca flour, safflower oil, rice bran, vegetable gum and sea salt. Our only wish is that they were organic.
