Garden Green Garbanzo Beans

Garden Green Garbanzo Beans

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

This company has spent the past 10 years engineering, brainstorming and introducing a brand new food into the marketplace. Green Garbanzos are fresh picked garbanzo beans which are still GREEN and LIVING (not our standard tan color we are used to seeing). The beans are harvested and then flash frozen to preserve the unique flavor and nutrient profile. Garden Green Garbanzos are highly nutritious and high in fiber, iron, protein, folate, Vitamins A and C as well as phytonutrients (anti-cancer). Originating on a small family farm in Idaho, the company is very focused on sustainability and earth friendly farming.  Garden Green Garbanzo plants have the ability to replenish atmospheric nitrogen, depleted by other crops, into the soil, thus reducing the need for fertilizers for Garden Green Garbanzos in crop rotation. These beans are carefully nurtured without the use of insecticides. Available at Whole Foods. Try impressing your friends with the recipe 'garbanzomole' which is printed on the back of the package. 5 stars all the way!

Eden Small Vegetable Shells

Eden Small Vegetable Shells

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

These small multi-colored pasta shells make for a delicious and wholesome meal that is much higher in protein than your traditional pasta. Eden Organic is an environmentally friendly company that prioritizes organic and non-GMO ingredients. These pasta shells are made from organic durum wheat flour and organic beet, spinach, annatto and carrot powder. Each serving is 9 g of protein (very high for pasta). Eden multi-colored shells are a good source of fiber packing 4 g per serving and containing no added salt. This is a creative way to spice up your favorite pasta dish while adding lots of extra protein and vitamins. Because wheat is one of the five most common food sensitvities and is acid-forming in the body, we are not huge fans of it, but if you do eat it, this is a great, non-GMO choice.

Dandy Blend Herbal Coffee

Dandy Blend Herbal Coffee

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

Dandy Blend is a super star to us! A very unique and healthy alternative to coffee that also helps the liver detoxify. Because it is made with extracts of roasted dandelion roots you reap all the benefits from an alkalizing and cleansing cup of coffee. Naturally caffeine free, Dandy Blend is a mixture of dandelion, chicory, beets, barley and rye. That naturally occurring sweet taste comes from the fructose in the root of the dandelion so you might find you don't need any sweeteners at all. This product is gluten free. According to their website, ''gluten, which is comprised of proteins that are not water-soluble, is left behind in the grounds to be composted during the extracting process. The taste is acquired so we suggest adding some sugar free coconut milk. Can be drank hot or cold. Definitely worth checking out for those of you who want to give up the negative effects of coffee but still want that bold, rich ceremonial hot drink in the morning.
