Nunaturals Alcohol Free Stevia

Nunaturals Alcohol Free Stevia

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

This is a safe and good alternative to sugar or yellow, pink and blue packets for your morning tea or coffee. Nunaturals stevia powder is made with maltodextrin, which is a carbohydrate derived from grain. Stevia is about 100 times as sweet as sugar, so it is a very potent natural sweetener. You won't need more then one or two drops to sweeten your food or drink. This stevia is milder than the alcohol-based liquid sweeteners, making it the best choice for those on a candida diet. The base is vegetable glycerine. Clients report a metallic aftertaste but we found we liked the product especially in a lemonade or a pasta sauce.

Nunaturals White Stevia Powder

Nunaturals White Stevia Powder

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

This is a safe and good alternative to sugar or yellow, pink and blue packets for your morning tea or coffee. Nunaturals stevia powder is made with maltodextrin, which is a carbohydrate derived from grain. Stevia is about 100 sweeter than sugar so a little goes a long way. You won't need more then ½  teaspoon to sweeten cereal, yogurt or a beverage. For health, dark liquid stevia is always the best because it hasn’t yet been refined. Stevia can also be used in baked goods to cut down the amount of sugar you have to use. Nunaturals has an edge in that they somehow cut out the metallic aftertaste than stevia can sometimes deliver. Four out of five stars because it's been refined. Still, an ENORMOUS upgrade from Equal, Splenda or Sweet n Low. Please never use any of those. They do not belong in a human body and should have long-since been left in the lab.

Nature's Path Organic Flax Cereal

Nature's Path Organic Flax Cereal

Dietary Needs:
None

This home grown company prides themselves on the fact that they never “sold out” when it comes to their core beliefs of organic farming and sustainability. Their cereals are made with ingredients including whole corn meal, brown rice flour, quinoa, flax seeds, and buckwheat flour.  Some cereals are gluten free which we like, however the cereals are sweetened with molasses and evaporated cane juice which of course brings down their star rating a bit. They offer a variety of products including cereals, granola and oatmeal.

Nutiva Cold Pressed Hemp Seed Oil

Nutiva Cold Pressed Hemp Seed Oil

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

This cold-pressed hemp oil is raw, unrefined and loaded with vitamin E, Omega-3s and Omega-6 EFA's (essential fatty acids) that play a crucial role in brain function and help to fight inflammation. These oils are pressed in small batches maintaining a very high quality product. Nutiva's motto is "to nourishing people and planet." Using hemp oil is a simple way to add the nutritional benefits of hemp (an Omega 3 alternative or adjunct to flax) to your diet. You can use organic hemp oil for delicious salad dressings, sauces, and smoothies, or to pour onto steamed veggies or grains. The flavor is a little overpowering especially when used in salad dressings so mix it with olive oil or another high quality oil to temper the bitterness. It is best to keep hemp oil refrigerated and to use it within 8-12 weeks of opening. We like supporting a company like this one with firm values in organic farming, green energy, and fair trade practices within the global economy. We really wanted to give this product five stars, but had to give them four because of taste. It's not Nutiva's fault. :)

Nutiva's Coconut Manna Coconut Butter

Nutiva's Coconut Manna Coconut Butter

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

Delicious! Coconut butter gives you a rich and decadent option that is incredibly versatile.  Even though coconut oil products are mostly saturated fats, they do not require bile to digest and are processed immediately through the small intestine and transported to the liver to be used as fuel. Isn't that fantastic? Coconut butter is also a natural antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal food. It has a light taste and is pure white in color. Try it melted over berries with a touch of xylitol or use it to make a healthy frosting. Nutivia products are all Non-GMO, certified organic and have zero Trans Fats. Refrigeration is not required and will last on your shelf for several months. Try this product in your next batch of cookies or check out our recipes for additional ideas, especially Cashew Cake Batter Pudding (a WJ favorite).
