Outer Aisle Gourmet

It is no secret that America has a weight problem. Over 2/3 of adults in the U.S. (144 million adults) are overweight and 1/3 are obese. The solutions to the problem are well known. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Americans need to eat more vegetables, less sugar, and fewer high-energy-dense foods that are high in carbs and calories. In addition, they need to exercise more.FullSizeRender-21.jpg

Outer Aisle Gourmet has recreated America’s favorite foods with fresh vegetables and other natural ingredients found in the outer aisle of every grocery store. Their cauliflower sandwich thins and cauliflower pizza crust are delicious, gluten free, non-GMO, Paleo friendly, and nutrient dense. They are also low in calories and carbohydrates.FullSizeRender-20.jpg

Farmers First Coffee; Rosa’s Coffee

Did you know that most coffee famers earn less than $2,000 per year?

Farmers First Coffee do things differently by paying 4 times more than “fair” trade each year. They put farmers first. By waking up each morning with a cup of Farmers First Coffee, you’re giving hard-working coffee farmers from Honduras and Peru the opportunity to lift themselves up economically.IMG_4785.jpg

Rosa Lloclla, grew this coffee. From San Ignacio, Peru, she’s the epitome of perseverance. A fighter. She and her son, Nolberto, are determined to improve their farm. Rosa’s coffee details below:

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter

Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter allows you to get a healthy source of peanuts but at the same time, still satisfy that creamy peanut butter craving!

Why Peanut Powder? Peanuts, no matter their form, offer a variety of health benefits including being a great source of energy, rich in vitamins like niacin and vitamin E, protein, fiber and manganese. Due to their higher energy content, you need less to feel full and satisfied.FullSizeRender-9.jpg

One form of peanuts, peanut powder, is made by pressing the peanuts to remove naturally occurring oils. The result is a powder containing a higher protein to fat ratio (6g protein to 1.5g   fat) as well as fiber and other nutrients that make peanuts so nutritious. It’s important to choose peanut powders without the fillers, such as added sugars or flavors to ensure you are consuming a quality product. Unlike many other popular brands of peanut powders, Crazy Richard’s keeps it simple by using only 1 ingredient—peanuts!

Press about 90% of the oil out of their single ingredient creamy peanut butter and what do you get? Pure PB; a super versatile pure peanut powder that lets you add the flavor and protein from the peanut to anything from baking to shakes. Now in a portable single serve for on the go.FullSizeRender-18.jpg
