Miracle Noodle

Miracle Noodle

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

Shirataki pastas are made mainly of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber acts to slow digestion so that you stay full longer. By doing this, it allows for the slower absorption of glucose which is the reason behind its beneficial effects in diabetes. Switching from regular pasta to this product will have an impact on your energy levels and your waistline but there are better ways to lose weight (than to trick your body). Use this noodle like a glass noodle. It will absorb the flavor of whatever sauce you are cooking with. This is definitely a healthy option but in our practice we encourage clients to use kelp noodles which are even healthier because they are packed with highly absorbable iodine.

Woodstock Farms Raw Almond Butter

Woodstock Farms Raw Almond Butter

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

We LOVE companies like this one where the 'belief that good food came from simple ingredients farmed from sources you could trust.' Woodstock Farms has recently teamed up with a non-profit American Farmland Trust to raise awareness about the importance of preserving land for sustainable farming. This almond butter is processed with minimal additional heat to preserve the delicate almond flavor. The ingredient list is short only containing raw unblanched almonds, although we subtracted one star for non-organic almonds.

Alta Dena Yogurt

Alta Dena Yogurt

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Gluten Free

Alta Dena is a decent, widely available brand of clean dairy products. In a conventional grocery store, they are a higher quality brand and in the health food store, there are better options. The best thing about them is that their milk comes from cows not treated with the growth hormone rBST*. All milk comes from family farmers under contract to Alta Dena. Cows receive a nutritious diet including fresh alfalfa hay which is much better than corn (and increases them by 1 star). They also use ingredients approved by the Natural Food Industry, such as natural sweeteners, honey and fructose. They never add powdered milk to fortify milk. It is ESSENTIAL these days to support companies that DO NOT treat their cows with hormones or antibiotics. They destroy our health on so many levels. Alta Dena is a fairly good choice and is widely available.
