Two Moms in the Raw Blueberry Cereal

Two Moms in the Raw Blueberry Cereal

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

The founder of this company was desperate to find a healthy, raw, organic snack that was free of additives, chemicals and refined sugar. She began experimenting with natural whole foods and creative ingredients. Not long after, her granola and sea crackers were born. These products are vegan, all natural with out any added oils or sugars. Ingredients in the organic granola include gluten free oats, millet, buckwheat, coconut, flax seed, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pecans and almonds. All of their products are sweetened with agave, so we subtracted one star; because new reasearch shows that agave is processed through liver similar to corn syrup.

Tea Gallerie

Tea Gallerie

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

Tea Gallerie sources organic, exotic and delicious teas from around the world. This company is local to San Diego. They are passionate and creative when it comes to their high quality range of teas. One of our favorites is this coconut chai, a micture of black tea, ginger root, cinnamon, shredded coconut, ginger, and vanilla. We also liked the lemon ginger for digestion, which is a combination of lemon verbena, lemongrass, botanicals, and ginger with the sweetness of African rooibos and honeybush. This tea range runs expensive for tea, however it's a great way to treat yourself and a great upgrade from coffee or your typical Lipton's tea.

Tera's Whey Goat Milk Protein

Tera's Whey Goat Milk Protein

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

We LOVE this company! They take every opportunity to implement cost effective sustainability solutions.  Goat whey protein is a smart alternative especially for those who have discovered a food sensitivity to dairy whey and eggs (two typically great sources of bio-available protein).  Each serving of tera'swhey Goat Milk Protein Powder has 20g of protein and 5g of carbs. They use stevia to sweeten the whey which of course we are huge advocates of. Tera'swhey is focused on quality over quantity. They built the only plant in the US that batch processes rather than uses the continual flow process. This makes it possible to not only monitor quality but know exactly what animals your whey is coming from. Check out their unique flavors loaded with all natural ingredients including fair trade dark chocolate and bourbon vanilla. Our favorite flavor is the cherry pomegranate.

Teeccino Herbal Coffee Tea Bags

Teeccino Herbal Coffee Tea Bags

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

We've been recommending Teeccino for years and they just keep coming out with more ways to help us do that. Teeccino's newest product is very creative, a Tee-bag that tastes like coffee without any caffeine. This takes convenience to a whole new level. Teecino tea bags blend carob, dates, figs barley and almonds which create a robust and full bodied cup of “coffee” that is alkalizing (versus acidic like coffee) and improves elimination.  The Tee-bags come individually wrapped in a variety of flavors including vanilla nut, hazelnut, almond amaretto and french roast. What we love most about Teeccino products is that they are full of antioxidants and contain potassium and soluble fiber which makes this an incredibly healthy alternative to coffee.  Teechino does contain barley therefore would not be suitable for those with a gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease.

Sweet Tree Coconut Sugar

Sweet Tree Coconut Sugar

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

This is another great upgrade from the refined white stuff called sugar and even from brown sugar as well. Coconut palm trees are known world wide for being the “tree of life” due to the variety of ways the tree can be used. SweetTree Organic Coconut Sugar is a minimally processed, unbleached natural sweetener made from the nectar of the coconut palm tree. Coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index than cane sugar and produces an average of 50-75% more sugar per acre than sugar cane with using less than one fifth of the soil nutrients and water. Coconut sugar is composed of about 75% sucrose followed by glucose and fructose. It ranks 35 out of 100 on the glycemic index, where table sugar is 100. Coconut sugar is high in potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron and is a natural source of the vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C. When purchasing coconut palm sugar be sure to double check the ingredients because many on the market today are mixed with cane sugar and other malt-based ingredients. Try this coconut sugar in our flourless black bean brownies! Delicious!
