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!

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.

It’s Nuts I Tell you………Organic Peeled Tiger Nuts

January 26, 2017 at 6:32 AM | Posted in nuts, NUTS COM | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , ,

This week from nuts.com (https://nuts.com/) its Organic Peeled Tiger Nuts. I had never heard of these and wanted NUTS1to find out about them. I came across them at the Nuts website (https://nuts.com/). All different types of Nuts are just one of many items you’ll find there, Items like DRIED FRUIT, CHOCOLATES and SWEETS, SNACKS, COFFEE and TEA, COOKING and BAKING, GIFTS, and more! Most items may be purchased in small amounts or in Bulk. Plus Everyday Free Shipping, check for details. So be sure to check the Nuts site (https://nuts.com/) for all your healthy items and be sure to check all the delicious and healthy recipe ideas! Now about the Organic Peeled Tiger Nuts.

 
Organic Peeled Tiger Nuts
Meet the tiger nut – the superfood once cherished by our paleo ancestors is now available for your snacking pleasure! Despite the name, tiger nuts are not actually nuts, but small root vegetables. They are known for being an excellent source of resistant starch: a beneficial prebiotic fiber that helps burn fat and reduce hunger. Our Certified Organic peeled tiger nuts have a sweet, nutty flavor and no skin for a soft texture that makes them easier to chew. They are also non-GMO.

How to Eat Tiger Nutsorganic-peeled-tiger-nuts
Peeled tiger nuts are a perfect healthy snack that can be enjoyed straight out of the bag. The firm outer skin has been removed from our tiger nuts so that you don’t need to soak them overnight. Nonetheless, they are still a chewy treat with a texture that is similar to fresh coconut. As you continue to chew on these tasty tiger nuts, you will begin to experience their nutty and slightly sweet taste. If you prefer a softer texture, the tiger nuts can be soaked for a couple hours prior to eating, although this step is not necessary given that the tiger nuts are already peeled.

Mix tiger nuts with other nuts and dried fruit for a unique trail mix, or stir them in oatmeal for a boost of energy and protein. They can even be blended into a sweet and creamy Spanish-style horchata beverage (see recipe below), or strained to make non-dairy tiger nut milk. Alternatively you can make your own tiger nut flour by grinding them in a food processor; the flour can be used to make paleo-friendly and gluten-free baked goods such as breads, muffins and pancakes.

Tiger Nuts Nutrition
Tiger nuts are packed with protein, fiber, healthy fats, and minerals like potassium, calcium and iron. Most notably, tiger nuts are recognized for being an excellent source of resistant starch, which may help reduce blood sugar, support weight loss, and improve gut health. The best part? There’s research to back this up. Check out these promising studies that demonstrate the health benefits of resistant starch:

1) Help control blood sugar levels. Thanks to their rich source of resistant starch, tiger nuts may improve insulin sensitivity. A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2005) examined the effects of dietary resistant starch on insulin sensitivity: the body’s ability to use the hormone insulin to reduce elevated blood glucose levels. Ten healthy participants received 30 grams of resistant starch per day for a period of four weeks. The results concluded that dietary resistant starch has the potential to improve insulin sensitivity.

2) Support weight loss goals. Trying to lose those extra pounds? Tiger nuts may be the belly-slimming superfood you’ve been seeking. The Journal of Nutrition (2012) published a study that evaluated the impact of resistant starch on the diets of overweight and obese men. The men received 15-30 grams of resistant starch per day, and by the end of the study they showed significant improvements in insulin sensitivity. Better insulin sensitivity can result in faster weight loss.

3) Improve digestive health. Take care of your gut just by snacking on some tiger nuts. Resistant starch comes to the NUTS2 LOGOrescue yet again when we’re talking about digestive health. The review journal Advances in Nutrition (2013) looked at studies examining the effects of resistant starch on gut bacterial metabolism and gut microbiota. Research shows that resistant starch can provide energy for the good bacteria in the gut. The studies reviewed also suggest that the interactions between gut microbiota and prebiotics, including resistant starches, may be able to prevent or correct human diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and inflammatory diseases.

Tiger Nut Horchata Recipe
If you’re familiar with Mexican horchata, you’ll love this traditional Spanish-style version just as much, if not more! To make tiger nut horchata, first hydrate one cup of tiger nuts by soaking them in water for 24 hours. Blend the hydrated tiger nuts into a paste, adding water as needed. Strain the tiger nut liquid thoroughly through a sieve. Add four cups of hot water and blend until desired consistency is achieved. Sweeten your homemade tiger nut horchata with a touch of cinnamon and sugar. Enjoy! (This recipe makes two servings).

Fun Fact about Tiger Nuts
Also known as chufa nuts or nookon, tiger nuts made up about 80% of our Paleo ancestors’ diet around two million years ago. Not actually nuts, they are considered tubers, small root vegetables. Tiger nuts are an allergy-friendly food because they are gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free and even (you guessed it!) nut-free. It’s a rarity to come across someone who is allergic to tiger nuts!
