• Product Shout Out: Artisana Almond Butter

    Happy Thursday everyone!

    I hope those of you who celebrate Christmas had a great one and ate some good food! A food that I love and use often is almond butter and today I’m shouting out Artisana’s Almond Butter. 

    I love this brand because their nut butters are all certified organic and raw! Their almond butter is made with organic almonds from California and are non-GMO. They use a cold press process to have their product be classified as raw. This is important because the butter has not gone under excessive heat, killing all the nutrition. Their almond butter also contains 0 grams of sodium and is made up entirely of just almonds. (The way it should be!) Not only does Artisana's almond butter possess all these great qualities it also tastes amazing! 

    Almond butter is a great alternative to peanut butter, whether you’re getting tired of the traditional  or just looking for more healthy alternatives. Both are great sources of healthy fat, protein and calcium!

    You can find Artisana’s Almond Butter, here , along with many other nut butters and coconut oil! By using their store locator on their website you can find a retailer near you that carries their products! :) 

  • Product Shout Out: Sunfood Superfoods Cacao Nibs

    Happy Thursday everyone!

    Shouting out one of my favorite companies today, Sunfood Superfoods. I’m a big fan of their products because they are raw, USDA certified organic and Non-GMO! (They also are vegan!) Sunfood Superfoods is a family run business out of San Diego, CA. All of their products are packaged in their also certified organic factory.

    One of their products that I love and use all the time is their Cacao Nibs. Some of you may already be familiar with what cacao is but for those of you who aren’t, cacao is chocolate!  Cacao nibs come for the cacao bean or also known as the cocoa bean. Inside the bean are the cacao nibs. These nibs are the most authentic form of chocolate. Raw cacao nibs are full of vitamins and antioxidants, so if you’re going to eat chocolate this is the purest way to enjoy it!

    You can use the nibs as toppings for desserts, add into smoothies (such as this one…) to make home made trail mixes or to bake with. There are so many ways you can incorporate these little bits of awesomeness into your dishes!
