Woodstock Farms Organic Tahini

Woodstock Farms Organic Tahini

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

Sesame seeds maybe the oldest condiment known to man, making our human food scene in the 1600s. They are high in copper, manganese, tryptophan, calcium and magnesium. You can use this pure, creamy, delicious tahini as a spread on toast or crackers. You can also use it to make hummus, gravy or creamy dressings which is very helpful to get the creaminess without using a dairy product. Woodstock Farms makes their paste from dry roasted sesame seeds. Your food is organic so why not your condiments as well? Woodstock Farms is now a certified non-GMO company by the Non-GMO project (http://www.nongmoproject.org/), which we absolutely L-O-V-E. It is so important to be informed about the quality of your food and how it was grown. We are also overjoyed that they are a main sponsor of the American Farmland Trust, an organization that raises awareness and funds to preserve land for sustainable farming.

MaraNantha Organic Raw Almond Butter

MaraNantha Organic Raw Almond Butter

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

MaraNantha Organic Almond Butters are made with USDA certified organic almonds grown in California. Almond Butter is a perfect companion to sliced apples, bananas and crackers. It is also delicious with toast and raw honey with cinnamon and/or sea salt. We usually recommend almond butter over peanut butter because almonds are lower in mold, more alkalizing and contain higher amounts of magnesium, which nourishes the nervous system. 1 Tablespoon adds a nice flavor and dose of protein to plain yogurt or smoothies as well. Even healthier, yet more expensive, they offer Organic Raw Almond Butter and we always like raw better because you get more nutrients and enzymes. We like to buy our own really raw almonds at the Farmer’s market and make our own almond butter in the Vitamix, but surely Maranantha will be a good choice.

Organicville Ketchup

Organicville Ketchup

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

Organicville's ketchup is made with the vine-ripened tomatoes and organic seasonings. This is one of the only ketchups out there without any added sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Sweetened with agave nectar, this richly flavored ketchup has the fresh hearty taste and texture you love. Organicville's Ketchup is USDA certified organic, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and is low glycemic. It also has less sodium than other brands, and of course because of the tomatoes, is an excellent source of lycopene. Organic ketchups have higher levels of lycopene and anti-oxidant activities than other brands tested, which is very cool. We give it 4.5 out of 5 stars because we would love to see them switch their sweetener to stevia or xylitol eventually.

Arrowhead Mills Organic Sesame Tahini

Arrowhead Mills Organic Sesame Tahini

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

Sesame seeds maybe the oldest condiment known to man, making our human food scene in the 1600s. They are high in copper, manganese, tryptophan, calcium and magnesium. Arrowhead Mills Tahini, is made from mechanically hulled (no chemicals) Latin American sesame seeds. You can use this pure, creamy, delicious tahini as a spread on toast or crackers. You can also use it to make hummus, gravy or creamy dressings which is very helpful to get the creaminess without using a dairy product. Arrowhead Mills uses a simple mechanical process free of caustic sodas, salts, and chemicals to naturally separate the oil for this product. We definitely suggest you weave this product into your diet! Check out our recipes page for ideas on how to do that. Our only other wish here is that Arrowhead Mills would become non-GMO project certified and also get into social consciousness by supporting the Amerinca Farmland Trust, an organization that raises awareness and funds to preserve land for sustainable farming. They are certainly a big enough company to have a great influence in that regard.
