So now on to the ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

 

 

ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER

Organic wheatgrass powder is all natural whole leaf organic wheatgrass bound into a perfect powder. Considered one of the most potent leafy green vegetables, wheatgrass powder is packed with beta-carotene, calcium, chlorophyll, fiber, iron and vitamin K and is non-GMO.

Wheatgrass is the sprouted shoot of wheat. Our organic wheatgrass powder is made from dehydrated wheatgrass to preserve active enzymes and maintain a naturally-rich nutrient profile.

Health Benefits
Organic wheatgrass powder contains an abundance of chlorophyll, which helps detoxify and cleanse the body while eliminating harmful toxins. Chlorophyll is also the reason wheatgrass has an alkalizing effect on the body, balancing pH levels and correcting a build-up of acids, which can inhibit the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. This alkalizing process also helps deliver oxygen to your cells, giving you a boost of energy. Wheatgrass enhances your body’s ability to ward off infections because it contains immune-boosting nutrients like beta-carotene and vitamin C. By weight, wheatgrass is approximately 85% pure plant protein and is made up of more than 20 amino acids. Wheatgrass is also a rich source of dietary fiber, iron, and folic acid, and has the capacity to absorb 92 minerals from the soil.

Preliminary research has been conducted to examine the potential health benefits of wheatgrass and the results have been promising:

1) A 2011 study from Acta Poloniae Pharmaceutica revealed that wheatgrass helped lower total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol in mice with abnormally high cholesterol levels.

2) Nutrition and Cancer released a 2007 study suggesting that wheatgrass may reduce negative side effects for breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Tastes and Uses
Wheatgrass powder has a mild grassy flavor with a hint of sweetness that works well with juice, smoothies or water. Mix a teaspoon of organic wheatgrass powder into your drinks or sprinkle it on foods. The daily recommendation is 1-3 servings. The taste will blend right into a creamy salad dressing like this avocado wheat drizzle. For something a little sweeter try a wheatgrass smoothie, blended with soy milk and frozen fruits.

Ingredients
Organic Wheatgrass Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.

It’s Nuts I tell you!…………ORGANIC ALMOND FLOUR (BLANCHED)

April 13, 2017 at 5:05 AM | Posted in nuts, NUTS COM | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This week from the nuts.com website (https://nuts.com/) its – ORGANIC ALMOND FLOUR (BLANCHED). A perfect a low-carb, gluten-free baking alternative to standard wheat flour. Besides being used as flour it can also be used as coating for food. The ORGANIC ALMOND FLOUR (BLANCHED) is just of many healthy items that you can find at the Nuts website (https://nuts.com/). You can choose from NUTS, DRIED FRUIT, CHOCOLATES and SWEETS, SNACKS, COFFEE and TEA, COOKING and BAKING, and GIFTS. You can purchase small amounts of items or purchase it in bulk. Plus there’s Everyday Free Shipping, see for details. Now here’s more on the ORGANIC ALMOND FLOUR (BLANCHED).

 

 

 

ORGANIC ALMOND FLOUR (BLANCHED)

Organic blanched almond flour (or almond meal) is a low-carb, gluten-free baking alternative to standard wheat flour. Our organic almond flour is made of—you guessed it—pure organic almonds, grown without pesticides or chemicals. Organic almond flour can be used as a base in breads, pancakes, muffins, cookies, cakes, and more. It can also be used to coat meat, poultry, seafood, and vegetables.

What is Blanched Almond Flour?
The almonds are first blanched to remove the skin, and then ground up to a coarse consistency, similar to that of wheat or cornmeal. There may still be a small amount of almond skins in the blanched almond flour left behind during processing.

Part of a Gluten-Free or Low-Carb Diet
Sometimes known as almond meal, almond flour is particularly popular with customers on gluten-free diets, as it serves for almost all of the same uses as wheat flour. Compared to other flours, almond flour is especially flavorful, with a nutty taste that works with many other foods. There are 18 grams of carbs in each serving of almond flour, which is low compared to other grain-based flours. Our organic almond flour is just as nutritious as the almonds it’s made of. The flour is high in protein and low in carbohydrates and sugar, making it an attractive option for customers on low-carb diets. Almonds have been associated with lower cholesterol and reduced risk of heart disease because of their monounsaturated fat and high levels of vitamin E. Our organic almond flour contains high amounts of calcium, iron, and dietary fiber, nutrients that people with gluten-free diets sometimes lack, as well as many other minerals.

Ingredients
Organic almonds Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.

March 16, 2017 at 5:34 AM | Posted in nuts, NUTS COM | Leave a comment

Superfoods are foods that are nutritionally dense and provide a wide array of health benefits that are important for maintaining a balanced diet. And that’s just some of the benefit’s of Superfoods!

Plus there’s Everyday Free Shipping, see for details. Now on to the Superfoods. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

 

 

What is a superfood?
Superfoods are foods that are nutritionally dense and provide a wide array of health benefits that are important for maintaining a balanced diet. Superfoods have high doses of vitamins and minerals which our bodies need to ward off diseases and stay healthy. They can also contain other important nutrients such as antioxidants, healthy fats, fiber, and phytochemicals. While the American Heart Association states that there are no set criteria for classifying a superfood, there are still foods that can be considered super due to their rich nutrient profile. We have compiled a list of some of the most popular superfoods which you can start incorporating into your diet today!

 

 

 

Popular Superfoods
1) Goji berries: Goji berries are bright orange-red berries that are native to China. In Asia, these berries have been consumed for many generations as they were thought to help you live longer. Goji berries are one of the most nutritionally dense berries. They contain all essential amino acids and are loaded with vitamin C, fiber, iron, calcium, zinc, and protein. These nutritional powerhouses also contains anti-inflammatory properties, as well as antibacterial compounds. Goji berries boast powerful antioxidant properties which help boost the immune system. It’s no wonder they have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries.

 

 

 

2) Quinoa: Quinoa comes from Peru, Bolivia and Chile. It’s been grown in the Andes Mountains for millennia as a food staple of the native people. It is often noted as a superfood because of its wide array of essential nutrients. Quinoa contains protein, fiber, and other vitamins and minerals like iron, copper, and vitamin B6. It is also a rich source of magnesium and phosphorus. A 2009 article in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture noted that quinoa is a highly nutritious food due to its exceptional balance of protein, oil, fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

This rich nutrient profile provides several health benefits for the body. Quinoa’s fiber content improves digestion and is said to help lower cholesterol levels. A study on the effects of a quinoa diet published in the journal Plant Foods for Human Nutrition found that rats reduced their LDL cholesterol by 57 percent when they were fed quinoa after consuming high levels of fructose. Moreover, lowering your LDL can improve heart health. Quinoa also contains omega-3 fatty acids and alpha-linolenic acids which are important for keeping your heart healthy and happy.

 

 

 

3) Spirulina: Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae found in most lakes and ponds. Spirulina is a superfood naturally loaded with vitamins A through E, iron, and antioxidants. From calcium to potassium to zinc, spirulina contains a wide range of minerals. The essential amino acids present in spirulina play a key role in helping our bodies to efficiently use these minerals.

Furthermore, it is considered a complete protein, containing an ideal balance of all 9 essential amino acids. A one-ounce serving of spirulina contains over 30% of the Daily Value (DV) for protein. Spirulina’s protein is 85-95% digestible, a higher percentage than that of even red meat or soy. Spirulina’s antioxidant concentration is four times that of blueberries. Moreover, spirulina has an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of over 24,000 – ORAC measures the antioxidant concentration of foods. Antioxidants protect our cells from the damaging oxidative effects of free radicals.

 

 

 

4) Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are a great superfood since they are extremely high in omega-3 fatty acids and are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Thirty percent of chia seed oil is omega-3 oil. Ten percent of its oil is omega-6 oil. This is the perfect balance of essential fatty acids. Western diets are usually susceptible to a deficiency of omega-3, but a proper omega 3:6 ratio plays an important role by reducing inflammation in our bodies.

Moreover, chia seeds are great for athletes because they are highly hydrophilic, meaning they can absorb large amounts of water. They can hold 10 times their weight in water making them a great enhancer in hydrating our bodies. Furthermore, studies show that eating chia seed slows down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrate calories into simple sugars. This leads scientists to believe that chia seeds may have great benefits for diabetics.

 

 

 

5) Cacao Nibs: Chocolate in its purest form, cacao nibs are a great superfood. Cacao nibs are rich in antioxidants, fiber, iron and magnesium. They contain a wide array of health benefits that are essential for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Cacao nibs are an excellent source of fiber and iron. A single one-ounce serving of cacao nibs provides 18% of the DV for fiber and 21% of the DV for iron.

Cacao nibs are also chock-full of protective antioxidants and magnesium. In fact, cacao nibs are one of the best food sources of magnesium: an essential mineral involved in over 300 chemical reactions in our body, from nerve function to bone health. Cacao nibs are also said to help improve cognitive function. Cacao nibs have many other health benefits including improving cognitive function, stabilizing blood sugar, improving insulin sensitivity, enhancing your mood, and contributing to overall general health. We definitely suggest adding cacao nibs to your diet!

It’s Nuts I tell you……DARK CHOCOLATE COVERED ESPRESSO BEANS

Dark chocolate covered espresso beans are hand-picked estate Arabica espresso beans smothered in 60% cacao dark chocolate, and says it all!

DARK CHOCOLATE COVERED ESPRESSO BEANS

Dark chocolate covered espresso beans are hand-picked estate Arabica espresso beans smothered in 60% cacao dark chocolate. Crunchy and decadent, this is the ultimate treat for coffee and chocolate lovers alike. Snack on dark chocolate espresso beans out of the bag, or pair them with your next cup of joe.

Origin
We tasted a lot of dark chocolate covered espresso beans in order to identify the best of the best. Sourced from Colombia, which is recognized for producing some of the highest quality coffee in the world, these espresso beans make all the difference in taste.

Unlike the cheaper and more common Robusta coffee beans, Arabica beans have a sweeter profile and more intense coffee aroma. Arabica coffee beans like the ones used in this treat are considered superior to Robusta beans in all aspects.

What are the Ingredients in Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans?
Dark chocolate covered espresso beans contain 60% cacao dark chocolate, roasted estate Arabica coffee beans, natural cocoa powder, confectioner’s glaze, and gum arabic (an emulsifier).

How Much Caffeine is in Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans?
Every 1/4 cup (about 10 grams) of dark chocolate covered espresso beans contains 60 milligrams of caffeine. For your reference, the average cup of coffee contains about 95 milligrams of caffeine.

Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans
1) Antioxidants: Chocolate and espresso give a one-two punch to free radicals with protective antioxidants. Dark chocolate contains antioxidants in the form of flavonoids, while espresso beans contain polyphenols, which are known to reduce the damaging effects of free radicals.

2) Natural Mood-Lifters: Dark chocolate can increase serotonin and endorphins, your body’s natural “feel-good” chemicals that put you in a good mood. Coffee produces a similar feeling because it stimulates the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which triggers the pleasant feelings that come with sipping a cup of coffee.

Recipe Ideas for Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans
Aside from snacking on them by the handful, dark chocolate espresso beans make a crunchy addition to trail mix, cookies, baked treats, and even chocolate bark! They are also a lovely decoration for chocolate- and coffee-flavored cakes and cupcakes. Arrange the chocolate covered espresso beans in a ring atop frosted desserts for a touch of elegance. Homemade coffee ice cream is also better with the addition of crunchy chocolate-drenched espresso beans. Try them as a topping on frozen yogurt, too!

Ingredients
Dark Chocolate: [contains: sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, soy lecithin ( an emulsifier), vanilla], Roasted Estate Arabica Coffee Beans, Natural Cocoa Powder, Confectioner’s Glaze, Gum Arabic. Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, and milk products.
