Superfood + Maple Maca Cashews by Navitas Organics

We like these nuts because they’re not super sweet, just a little hint of maple and butterscotch from the maca. Maca, is a super-root from Peru that has been traditionally used as a stress-fighting adaptogen*. Cashews, we know, contain beneficial fats and they’re a great source of plant-based protein and minerals. We’ve been eating them right out of the bag—for a snack we feel good about but they’d also be great sprinkled on salads or yogurt or ice cream!

*(in herbal medicine) a natural substance considered to help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes

Abigail’s Bakery Millet & Sweet Brown Rice Bread

We recently started carrying a gluten-free bread from Abigail’s Bakery in East Weare, NH. Their Millet & Sweet Brown Rice loaves are made with care for people with special dietary needs. These loaves are sweetened with agave nectar and do not contain refined sugar. The ingredient list is simply: whole millet flour, sweet brown rice flour, fresh well water, soybean oil, agave nectar, sea salt, and yeast. Our favorite new morning toast is their Cinnamon Raisin Swirl.

Please note: Abigail’s Bakery does bake other wholesome breads that are made from wheat and wheat products. They are very particular against cross contamination and thorough cleaning of their equipment, but they are not a gluten-free certified facility. They are a nut-free facility but do use egg and soy products.

My Magic Mud Whitening Toothpaste

We had to try this BLACK—yes, VERY black—toothpaste the minute we heard about it. My Magic Mud was developed by a mother of four to help with her child’s sensitive teeth. And the very first thing we thought of as we started brushing was that kids would absolutely LOVE this product. Not for all the great benefits of course, just the fact that it turns your entire mouth black while you brush—way more fun that your run-of-the-mill white toothpaste:)

Made with coconut oil, Bentonite clay and activated coconut shell charcoal, it cleans, polishes, whitens, and detoxes your teeth. It’s also vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, flouride-free and non-GMO. All you “kids” out there need to try it!
