It’s hard to find the perfect bars that is organic, healthy, and doesn’t have all that weird stuff in it. Mammoth Bars does exactly that! All Mammoth Bars flavors are certified organic and free of harmful additives. They are cleaner & more nutritious. Of course they are low in sugar and high in protein. Importantly, there is NO WEIRD STUFF. Mammoth Bars are gluten-free, dairy free and soy free.  Zero fillers. FullSizeRender-3.jpg

Sprouting nuts involves a soaking and dehydration process that helps unlock the nutritional benefits of the nut by reducing the phytic acid content which in inherent (to a varying degrees) in all nuts/seeds. Phytic acid clings to other important minerals such as zinc and iron and makes them difficult to fully digest. This can create a strenuous load on the GI tract for many people. Soaking nuts greatly reduces these enzyme inhibitors, and what you’re left with is a more easily digestible nut that is crunchier and packs a more powerful nutritional punch.FullSizeRender-4.jpg

BeanFields Chips

Beanfileds Chips makes it ok to snack on here and there!

With 8 different delicious flavors, Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips satisfy your snack cravings with every delicious crunch. One serving of Beanfields Chips gives you 5 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber, so you can feel good about what you’re eating. Beanfields Chips are always vegan, certified gluten-free, kosher, and Non-GMO Project Verified.

Did you know that beans are the ONLY food that the USDA lists in two different nutrition categories?  Beans are BOTH a vegetable and a protein source!  That’s a lot of nutrition packed into those small bean packages! Corn and potato—the most common chip ingredients—are mostly empty calories.  But our bean and rice chips provide 5 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. They’re also certified gluten-free, Non-GMO Project Verified, kosher, vegan and allergy-friendly.FullSizeRender-7.jpgFullSizeRender-9.jpg

All of Beanfields Bean and Rice snacks are vegan. Even our Nacho and Jalapeño Nacho chips do not contain dairy as an ingredient and are perfect for vegan diets. What you eat and what you feed your family- these are highly personal choices. Yet almost everybody is now interested in alternatives to meat that are less expensive, more convenient, healthier, and kinder. That means a very different relationship with the animals we use for food, if we use them at all. At Beanfields, we do our part by providing a yummy, convenient and plant-based snack with 5 grams of protein. It’s a perfect transition food for all you budding vegans out there!FullSizeRender-17.jpg

Better Dessert with Better Together Baking

Now you can indulge in dessert without having to feel bad about it! With the brownies at Better Together Baking, it’s impossible to skip out on dessert after a meal.FullSizeRender-3.jpg

Better Together Baking decided to take this classic American treat and make it better. Each flavor uniquely its own and handcrafted with ingredients chosen purposefully. No junk, no preservatives, no trans-fats, just pure simple ingredients to make a most awesome brownie. The result a classic treat made grand again.

About Better Together Baking: Planning was never Todd’s strong suit. He never planned on starting a baking company. As it turns out when you want to follow your dream sometimes it is best to not have a plan. Sitting in his cube one day buried in spreadsheets he knew it was time for change. Later that day he turned to his wife(Kes) and told her he wanted to start a baking company. It was scary yet exciting, but such as it is when you follow your dream. So they both quit their jobs in D.C. and moved to Philly.  Their mission was simple; to make classic American treats (like the brownie) and make them better, together.FullSizeRender-11 2.jpg

These brownies are made with a purpose, with love, like your mom might do. This is why we say around here they are heartfelt good.
