Navitas Power Snacks

Optimal nutrition is especially important during the summer when the body and mind can be stressed by heat and strenuous outdoor activities. As many of you know, it’s been super hot all over the country lately! I know it was 100 degrees every day last week in Chicago! The next couple of days are going to be in the 90’s. Navitas Naturals offers healthy, superfood Trail Mixes and Power Snacks that provide delicious nutrition convenience to support busy summer lifestyles.

Navitas Naturals recently added new Blueberry Hemp to their award-winning line of Navitas Power Snacks, joining Cacao-Goji and Citrus-Chia. In addition to hemp powder and dried blueberries, Blueberry Hemp Power Snacks are made with organic functional food stars such as chia, maca, lucuma, camu and maqui, as well as other wholesome raw foods including sesame seeds, cashews and sunflower seeds. The bite-sized cubes have a delicious flavor, healthy whole-food appearance, and rich chewy texture. There are no refined sugar, preservatives and artificial colors and flavors in Navitas Power Snacks. They are certified organic and certified gluten-free, and are GMO-free and dairy-free. They are offered in an 8-ounce re-sealable and recyclable pouch for $8.99. Taste? I love when healthy products have the great taste to back them up.

If you are looking for a great healthy and organic snack, make sure you try out Navitas Power Snacks!

Eat Raw, Eat Well: 400 Raw, Vegan and Gluten-Free Recipes

Raw food is all the rage right now, so I wanted to check this out. The benefits of weight loss and increased energy as well as a reduced risk of certain diseases are some of the reasons that people want to eat raw foods. Others have an aversion to animal-based foods or simply wish to consume more whole, nutrient-rich ingredients.

Eat Raw, Eat Well: 400 Raw, Vegan and Gluten-Free Recipes will appeal to both newcomers to and veterans of the raw-food lifestyle. The recipes have easy-to-follow instructions. There is also a guide to properly prepare the ingredients in advance of meal preparation to enhance their nutritional value as well as a comprehensive list of “raw pantry” essentials.  The book goes over why you should eat a Raw Diet.  I also know a ton of people who need to eat gluten free diets and this book will definitely help!

There are a lot of recipes in here that you wouldn’t think that you could have like Alfredo sauce, pizza, and nachos.  There is even a strawberry daiquiri recipe.

If you’ve decided that the raw-food lifestyle is for you — either full-time or part-time — look no further than Eat Raw, Eat Well!
