Ian's Gluten-free Animal Cookies

Ian's Gluten-free Animal Cookies

Dietary Needs:
Gluten Free

Made with organic ingredients, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. It is difficult for parents to find animal crackers that are gluten-free so we are happy that Ian’s is doing this! Their products contain no hydrogenated oils but they do use cane juice. We would gladly give them an extra star if they used a lower glycemic sweetener like brown rice syrup, coconut sugar, fruit juice or even agave nectar. Much better option compared to conventional brand like Oreo's or Chips Ahoy, but Nana's cookies would be a better option. Definitely check out the rest of their products because they make a whole line of healthier chicken nuggets and other products that are dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free and nut-free.

Nana's Gluten Free Cookies

Nana's Gluten Free Cookies

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

A Whole Journey favorite! Nana’s are a local San Diego company and we love them. They make a GREAT tasting cookie that is virtually free of anything allergenic. Many of our clients reach for Nana’s when they want something sweet because they are a great way to keep the sweetness but lose the sugar since they are naturally sweetened with fruit juice. Baked with all natural ingredients with No Dairy, No Refined Sugars, No Eggs, No Cholesterol, No Trans Fats, No Hydrogenated Oils, No Preservatives, and No GMOs. Nana's Cookies are vegan and kosher. Oh how we wish Nana’s would use all organic ingredients because then we could give them 5 stars! TWJ Select product nonetheless.  You will always find a few in our freezer and we highly recommend them!

Garden of Eatin’ Blue Corn Chips

Garden of Eatin’ Blue Corn Chips

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

Gardenof Eatin Blue Tortilla Chips have only three ingredients; Organicblue corn, expeller pressed oleic safflower and/or sunflower oil, seasalt. That is what we like to see. After all, there is no need formore. We really like that they use safflower or sunflower oil overcanola or soybean oil. Blue corn is healthier than white or yellowcorn in that it has 20% more protein and contains the amino acidlysine and the antioxidant anthocyanin. A very goodchoice for those of you who love to snack on chips and guacamole orchips and salsa.

Fiji Natural Artesian Water

Fiji Natural Artesian Water

Dietary Needs:
None

By definition, artesian water comes from a source deep within the earth, protected by layers of clay and rock. There is no opening, not even a porthole to the surface. As a result, the water never comes into contact with the air, protecting it from environmental pollutants and other contamination. Fiji Green has partnered with Conservation International to become the first carbon negative product in their industry and to save the largest rainforest in Fiji, and they are also reducing the amount of packaging in their products and leading the charge to expand recycling programs and incentives.
