Perfect Foods Bar

Perfect Foods Bar

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Perfect Foods Bar has changed it's name to Perfect Bar.  What ever they want to call themselves we LOVE this company! Finally, a raw, organic protein bar at truly tastes delicious! It's definitely one of our favorites to recommend to breakfast skippers to feed their stress hormones upon waking. Their motto is 'Real food and simple ingredients you can pronounce without a chemistry degree.' We dig it. It's how food should be. High in protein, fiber and Omega-3s, these bars are hand made locally in San Diego. They use whey protein and sweeten the bar with raw organic honey. There are 18g of protein per bar and with the nut profile, they are packed with healthy fat. Because of the raw high quality ingredients, you will find these in the refrigerated section of your health food store (or if you are not on the west coast, you'll have to order them online). Our favorite is the almond butter flavor (which is perfect for those sensitive to peanuts). There are a total of 5 flavors to choose from so you are guaranteed to find one you like. Hands down, this bar rates the tastiest among our clientele.

Organic Valley Eggs

Organic Valley Eggs

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

Organic Valley Eggs come from a 76 different egg farm owners who are focused on quality over quantity. This means that the the eggs are farmed on a much smaller scale leaving plenty of wide open spaces for the chickens (how it should be). Their hen houses have natural sunlight and access to fresh air. Their animals are raised humanely and given certified organic feed process with high integrity. The chickens are even fed extra flaxseed, which produces eggs high in Omega-3 fatty acids. We feel strongly that it is well worth paying a few extra dollars for a carton of high quality clean organic eggs. Organic Valley is a trusted brand, but for absolute top-of-the-line eggs, look for the term "pastured".

Comvita Propolis lozenges

Comvita Propolis lozenges

Dietary Needs:
None

Now this is a clever and innovative product. Bee propolis is the resinous substance that bees gather from the leaf buds and bark of trees. Bees bring this substance to their hives and once mixed with bee salivary secretions and wax flakes, the finished product is created. Propolis is used in the hive as an antibacterial antioxidant and subsequently works the same inside our human bodies. These bee propolis lozenges are a huge upgrade from the standard cough drops we typically see in our supermarket because they are actually working to heal instead of mask symptoms. There are more then 600 different bacteria species found in the mouth which make antibacterial properties a must have when it comes to fighting off a cold. They are made with Manuka Honey which is sourced from New Zealand’s remote, forests and is renowned for its unique flavour and health benefits.  Comvita is a company from New Zealand that was founded on the concept “ to produce natural products that work, and acting in a way which preserves the environment for generations to come.” 5 star product all the way BUT we recommend not giving any bee products to kids under three years old because their immune systems aren't yet developed enough to handle it.

Organic Pastures Raw Milk

Organic Pastures Raw Milk

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

WE LOVE THIS COMPANY! Out of 1750 dairy's in CA, only 2 are raw. Organic Pastures has fought tooth and nail to keep that status and to keep raw dairy products available to the public. They have recently been incredibly challenged by state and government organizations and we are hoping and praying that they prevail. Organic Pastures is lead by family farmers  who live completely in harmony with nature without ever giving antibiotics, synthetic hormones or pesticides to their animals.  Their cows are treated super well, get tested twice weekly for microbes and eat nothing but nutritious grass their entire lives. The owners lectures all over the country about the benefits of raw milk because of their firm believe in the vast health benefits. Check out their raw butter, milk and cream. Believe it or not, we use it judiciously in our prenatal protocols with astounding success. We also like to use raw milk for certain specific cases of gut repair, immune rebuilding and to help eliminate asthma. TWJ select product all the way!

This product is made from vanilla beans and has a great vanilla flavor. Our clients super love it and it is well worth stocking in your pantry.

Liquid stevia is a safe and good alternative to sugar and will add a unique flavor to your morning tea or coffee.  Stevia is about 100 times as sweet as sugar so go easy on it.
