Teeccino Herbal Coffee

Teeccino Herbal Coffee

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

Teeccino Herbal coffee is a blend of herbs, nuts, fruits and grains that are roasted, ground and brewed just like coffee.  Dark, rich, and full-bodied, Teeccino brings you all the satisfaction of a robust brew with no caffeine reaction or acidity response. It tastes mildly sweet from dates and figs, but only has 15 calories per cup. Teeccino contains 65mg of potassium to give your body a natural energy lift and 365mg of inulin to enhance your digestion and improve your elimination. Coffee lovers are attracted to its full-bodied, dark roasted java flavor. Teeccino allows coffee drinkers to keep their cherished coffee ritual with all the enjoyment and satisfaction of a freshly brewed cup! We have been recommending it to clients for years!  Teechino does contain barley therefore would not be suitable for those with a gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease.

Fit 365 Protein Powder

Fit 365 Protein Powder

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

No doubt about it, this is our absolute favorite protein powder. It was formulated by a team of naturopathic doctors, nutritionists and food chemists and uses the highest quality, organic ingredients that can be found. The whey in Fit 365 comes from native, New Zealand grass-fed cows.  Fit 365 contains coconut oil, which we love for so many reasons from brain function, to metabolism to skin health and digestive support. It also uses natural sweeteners like xylitol and Lo Han Go (chinese fruit) and pink salt for added minerals your body can easily recognize and use. Thank you Fit365 for your hard work in creating a protein powder that we can stand behind 100%! We only wish it was more widely available in health food stores. For now you will have to get it online or if you are local to North County San Diego, you can find it at Seaside Market in Cardiff.

Mary's Gone Crackers

Mary's Gone Crackers

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

Oh how we love Mary's! Every single client gets at least one package of Mary's from us to try out, and we always point out their products in our grocery store tours. Mary's has made a great, very healthy, gluten-free cracker that is highly nutritious and delicious, and we are proud to promote and support them. Many of our clients' food sensitivity reports come back letting us know that their body does not react well to gluten. In fact, it lowers most people's immune systems when they eat it, so we often suggest keeping your home gluten-free whenever possible. Mary's has combined whole grain brown rice, quinoa, flax seeds, and sesame seeds into their especially crunchy cracker. Thank you, Mary, for your dedication "to heal humanity and the planet by inspiring conscious eating". We are with you in that mission! Their products are also USDA Organic and Non-GMO project certified. What more could you ask for? Try them with hummus, guacamole, nut butter, or salsa. We also crush them up and use them as bread crumbs. Mary's Gone Crackers is a TWJ-select product, of course!

Eden Aduki Beans

Eden Aduki Beans

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

We really love the entire process Eden uses for their canned beans, and we think they are the best brand available for canned beans. Aduki beans are our favorite bean for health. They are the easiest bean to digest and the least gas-forming for those who don't usually tolerate beans well. Aduki beans are tonifying to the kidneys and the adrenal glands. They taste sweeter than any other bean and are traditionally used in Japanese desserts. Eden originally got their aduki bean seeds straight from Japan and continue to grow and harvest them using the highest quality organic soil. They are soaked overnight and expertly cooked at Eden's certified organic and circle k kosher cannery. What tips us happily over the edge is that they use kombu when cooking their beans. Kombu is a sea vegetable that is loaded with essential trace minerals. It helps to make the bean more digestible. They are packed in bisphenol-A free cans, which is a huge plus, and a necessity to protect the quality of canned foods. Make sure to rinse your beans thoroughly before using them.

Eden Foods Black Beans

Eden Foods Black Beans

We really love the entire process Eden uses for their canned beans and think they are the best brand available for canned beans. Their Black Turtle beans come from a small family farm. They are soaked overnight and expertly cooked at Eden's certified organic and circle k kosher cannery. What tips us happily over the edge is that they use kombu when cooking their beans. Kombu is a sea vegetable that is loaded with essential trace minerals. It helps to make the bean more digestible. Black beans are a super versatile bean that are a staple in many cuisines around the world and a Whole Journey favorite to recommend as a high quality complex carbohydrate. Carotenoids, antioxidant containing plant color pigments, give these beans their deep black color. Rich in dietary fiber and a good source of protein, iron, and magnesium. Fat free and very low sodium with no salt added. Packed in bisphenol-A free cans, which is a huge plus. Make sure to rinse your beans thoroughly before using them.
