Mary's Gone Crackers Sticks and Twigs

Mary's Gone Crackers Sticks and Twigs

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

We might be keeping Mary's in business too because of how often we suggest them. :) Mary's is a brand we promote on a daily basis and in all of our grocery store tours. These sticks and twigs are truly a gift to pretzel lovers! This unique gluten-free snack is light and crunchy and tastes strikingly similiar to a pretzel and all of our clients love them.  Sticks & Twigs are made with nutrient dense whole grains including brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, and millet.  Flax, sesame and chia seeds add great flavor and a healthy combo of Omega-3 and Omega-6. Check out all 3 flavors- sea salt, curry and chipotle tomato. Thank you Mary's for existing and helping us to help people gracefully and tastefully go gluten free!

This is a healthy whole grain rice that is full of flavor.

We LOVE this brand! Lundberg offers brown rice alternatives to nearly every food. Our latest discovery is brown rice couscous. Made with organic brown rice, this delicious couscous is a perfect wheat and gluten-free alternative that cooks in only 10 minutes! Try cooking it in vegetable or free-range chicken broth and half a diced white onion for added flavor. Lundberg has made this great tasting product available in several different flavors to spice up any couscous dish. Lundberg Family Farms is non-GMO and uses eco-positive farming methods. Of course we at The Whole Journey love that! Check it out, a high B vitamin and fiber product made in 1/5 of the time it takes to cook brown rice. Pretty cool.
