Natural Rush Raw Honey

Natural Rush Raw Honey

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

We like Natural Rush raw Canadian honey. It’s reasonably priced, easy to find and tastes good. The consistency is whipped, which is different. It is a delicate honey that sweetens gently, without over- powering the flavor of sensitive teas and foods. Natural Rush is never whipped or cooked or mixed in any way. The white color, the rich "frothy" texture, the mellow flavor. All this is the work of nature. Raw honey is the only kind we recommend due to its therapeutic benefits.

Suzanne's Ricemellow crème

Suzanne's Ricemellow crème

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

Suzanne's products use no preservatives, refined sugars, artificial colors or flavors. Suzanne's Specialties products are fat-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, and vegan. All great things. We love their philosophy to avoid the over-refining grains where the identity of the plant itself has been removed because of the immense value in keeping the original color, proteins, residual oils, and micronutrients of the grains. Now we just wish they would jump on our anti-soy bandwagon with their Ricemellow creame because we have to drop them a full 2 stars due to the use of soy protein isolate (see our soy blog if you want more info on this). It is the first (and only) all natural, vegan marshmallow creme. This product is made with brown rice syrup and it is an exceptional alternative to marshmallow. Check out the rest of their product line.

Honey Gardens were truly some of the pioneers of raw honey in the 1960’s, leading the raw honey market in the Northeast. Raw honey has not been heated so none of the nutritional properties have been destroyed. It supports digestion, the immune & respiratory systems and aids in seasonal allergy relief. Honey Gardens is committed to offering the highest quality. They are helping with sustainable beekeeping and gifting their beehives all over the northeast to advance this mission of being responsible stewards of the earth. Apitherapy raw honey and plant medicine is made from truly raw honey, flower pollen, propolis, and medicinal plants. Note that if you want to use raw honey to mitigate seasonal allergies, then you must use a local variety close to home.

Bob's Red Mill Organic Kamut Flour

Bob's Red Mill Organic Kamut Flour

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

Organic Kamut Flour is an ancient relative of modern day wheat. Many people who have a sensitivity to gluten can handle kamut with no problem at all. It has a buttery flavor and is much easier to digest than wheat, and causes less allergies and acid. Legend says that Kamut grain came from the time of ancient Pharaohs and was first planted at the Egyptian pyramids. Bob's Red Mill stone grinds this plump, rich grain into superb baking flour right at their mill in Portland.

Bob's Red Mill Organic Spelt Flour

Bob's Red Mill Organic Spelt Flour

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

Bob’s Red Mill freshly grinds their spelt flour at their mill. If you like to use wheat flour in recipes, this is a big upgrade because, spelt being an ancient derivative of wheat contains more nutrients, is less acidic and overall better for digestion. Spelt is especially high in protein, containing 10 grams per two ounces. That is five times the amount of regular wheat flour. It also contains 3.5 times the amount of fiber than wheat. This upgrade is really a no-brainer.
