Near East Couscous

Near East Couscous

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free

Near East products are high quality, easy to prepare and 100% natural. Combining interesting ingredients and authentic flavors, this is a good brand for falafel and taboule. 1/3 c serving has 8 grams of protein. However, coucous is simply pasta. It cooks in about 5 minutes. It is not considered a grain and isn't very healthy. We prefer brown rice couscous. No sugar in Near East couscous, which is a plus.

Emerald Forest Erythritol

Emerald Forest Erythritol

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

Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that is derived from corn. It's a natural sweetener that looks and tastes like sugar yet has almost no calories but does not have any adverse effects on the body. Some of you may have watched the documentary King Korn. We are getting corn in nearly every step of the food chain these days and it is creating radical imbalances in our bodies. Consider mixing it with other healthy sweeteners, like xylitol, to increase its nutrient profile. Erythritol has a low molecular weight which means it won't brown the way other sugars do when baked but it will extend the shelf life of products it's used in.

Himalania Pink Salt

Himalania Pink Salt

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

This is the number one salt The Whole Journey recommends! Sourced deep within the Himalayan Mountain range where it has been trapped for hundreds of millions of years. This salt has never been exposed to any modern chemicals, toxins or radiation sources which makes it the purest of all salts. Himilania Pink Salts have the highest concentration of minerals of any sea salt with highly flavorful and unique taste. Best sea salt you can use to improve your health. We suggest stocking it asap! Salt is not bad for you and mineralized, natural salt will not raise your blood pressure. Food for thought: a salt craving most of the time is a craving for minerals, yet we feed that craving with refined, iodized salt and so it the minerals are not delivered and the craving ensures.

Eden Foods Quinoa

Eden Foods Quinoa

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

Quinoa is a Whole Journey favorite! The true 'Mother Grain' of the Andes, organically grown on a small family plot at over 11,000 feet in the Andes Mountains. An ancient grain with pleasant texture, great flavor, potent nutrition, and convenience. Quinoa is rich in dietary fiber providing 44% daily value per serving and cooks in just 12 minutes. From our experience, it is completely hypo-allergenic. This organic grain stands above the rest because it provides a complete protein with the best amino acids profile of any grain. The Food and Agricultural Organization and the World Health Organization (FAO/WHO) of the United Nations rated the nutritional quality of quinoa's protein similar to casein (milk protein).
