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

Ricochet gum is sweetened with xylitol (a naturally occurring sugar alcohol from the birch tree.) Research points to the fact that chewing this gum after eating cleans and protects teeth and can even help to prevent cavities. This is a HUGE upgrade from your typical grocery store gum because there are fewer calories and carbohydrates, and it contains no artificial colors flavorings or aspartame.  Check out their flavors including peppermint, spearmint, fruit punch and cinnamon.

Ricochet Gum

Ricochet Gum

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

Ricochet gum is sweetened with xylitol (a naturally occurring sugar alcohol that comes from the birch tree.) Research points to the fact that chewing this gum after eating both cleans and protects teeth while preventing cavities (because it protect the enamel on the teeth). This is a HUGE upgrade from your typical grocery store gum because there are fewer calories and carbohydrates and it contains no artificial colors flavorings or aspartame.  Check out their flavors including peppermint, spearmint, fruit punch and cinnamon. As a sidenote, chewing gum forces the body to secrete amalayse, a digestive enzyme, which then tricks the body into thinking food is on the way that needs to be digested. Because no food comes and we make enzymes anyway, it's a bit of a false alarm that ultimately depletes our enzyme production so chew gum on occassion, not as an addiction. Nonetheless, we LOVE Richochet gum as an enormous upgrade to Extra, Trident and all the other usual suspects you typically see at the checkout counter.

Redwood Hill Farms Goat Cheese

Redwood Hill Farms Goat Cheese

Dietary Needs:
None

We are huge fans of goats milk as opposed to dairy milk. Goat milk products are digested within about 20 minutes whereas dairy products can take up to 8 hours to be digested. Redwood Hill Farms is located in Sonoma County, California and are a family owned business creating raw goat products for the past 40 years. We love this artisan raw goat milk feta cheese. This creamy cheese is brined in a natural, salt water brine before being bagged for aging. Raw goats milk has the tendency to balance the good bacteria in our GI track and is a nourishing food rich in vitamins, minerals, and complete proteins. We love supporting a company like this one!

Redwood Hill Farms Goat Milk Kefir

Redwood Hill Farms Goat Milk Kefir

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

This goat kefir is a great choice for those who are lactose intolerant. The complete protein in kefir is partially digested which makes it easy for the body to utilize. Kefir is different than yogurt because of the amount of live and active cultures. Typically kefir has more than twice the amount of live cultures than yogurt, and in this particular kefir there are 10 active and live cultures including: L. bulgaricus, L. acidophilus, L. casei, L. rhamnosus, L. lactis, L. diacetylactis, S. thermophilus, L. cremoris, Leuconostoc cremoris and B. bifidum. This product is all natural with no sugar, artificial coloring, preservatives, stabilizers or powdered milk. Goat's milk products digest in much less time than cow's milk products.. Our favorite flavor is the blueberry pomegranate.
