Well, it’s been a while since I posted any recipes, or product reviews for that matter. I’ve been so busy working, and also finishing up my latest book, Raw Food Basics. It’s now available as an e-Book, and soon in paperback. Link here to learn more!
Today’s focus will be on several great raw food products that I enjoy and purchase on occasions. The first item is a wonderful and original raw honey elixir by Raw Matt, who is an MMA fighter, and a raw food enthusiast too. The name of his company and product line is Epic Elixirs. These raw honey elixirs are handcrafted from organic and wild herbs and honey that have been hand-harvested by his company from pristine mountain canyons and source from healthy gardens or sustainable, small farms. These elixirs are so incredibly delicious and magical, I truly felt the difference when I consumed them on a daily basis. I would spread it on crackers, have heaping tablespoons in my smoothies, and eat it by the spoonful too! Great stuff!
All three varieties are out-of-this world! However, we all have our favorites. My favorite is the Elixir of Vitality Power & Energy. The ingredients include Raw Wild Honey, Goji Berries, Maca, Noni, Tribulus Terestrius, Astragalus, Ginger, Cayenne, Cinnamon, Clove. It’s the combination of the Cayenne, Ginger, Cinnamon and Cloves that make this one my Epic Elixir addiction! It has incredible flavor, and definitely is energizing.
These products are a little pricey, but they are well worth the investment. Try them for yourself – you will love them! They RAWK!!!
Next up is another great product which I purchased through Kevin and Annmarie Gianni, from the Renegade Health Show. This product is Cocopura, a pure coconut superfood – coconut creme spread. It’s low-glycemic, raw and organic! It’s so delicious! I found myself eating spoonfuls of this stuff! It’s a great treat to spread on raw bread or crackers, to mix in smoothies, or add to raw dessert mixes. This is probably the best coconut creme I have ever tasted!!! Truly! =)
I’m sure you can purchase this product through other raw food sites, but I’m directing you to Kevin and Annmarie, since it was through their site that I got the idea and actually purchased my first jar. Link here to learn more about Cocopura, or visit the Renegade Health Show.
Lately I have been eating a lot of purchased raw food snacks! My schedule has been such that I haven’t had time to make my own. Well, trying to find healthy, less fattening, raw food snacks for purchase can be challenging. They are all delicious, but some are more “fattening” than others. They are the “junk foods” of the raw food world! So, I did my research and came across the company over a year ago. The products are phenomenal, low fat, and super yummy! And now I can find them at the local Whole Foods store, in addition to purchasing them online. Okay, so who is this company? And what do they make? They are Freeland Foods, and they make Goraw – Real Live Food!!! Freeland Foods produces some of the finest hand-crafted, certified organic, raw living food available today.
All their products are created much in the same way. They start with the best seeds found, soaked in filtered water, rinsed and cleaned, then sprouted for up to four hours. The sprouts are then mixed with raw and organic ingredients of the highest quality. The mixture is then spread by hand over trays and loaded into custom built dehydrators where they sit for about two days at an average temperature of 98 degrees. All finished product is packaged in house on dedicated equipment then stored and shipped, and ready for people like you and me to purchase and enjoy! They truly take pride in their work!
Some of their products include Bars, Flax Snax, Super Chips/Super Cookies, Granola, Sprouts, and Chocolate. My favorite product is the Super Cookies, specifically the Ginger Snaps, and the Chocolate Super Cookies. They are rawsome snacks!!!
Finally, the last item to feature and review today is this great little snack product produced by Essential Living Foods, the Chocolate Covered Goji Berries. This little item is pretty addicting! I have to watch myself when I have these. I can go through an entire little box within an hour or less. They are that good! This is another item now available at the local Whole Foods store. This product is made with decadent dark chocolate (raw chocolate), that’s covered over super goji berries for super delicious goodness! It’s loaded with protein, nutrients, essential vitamins and trace minerals. A great chocolate snack when you are craving some dark and sweet like super chocolate!!!
