Clean carbs delivered to your door with Wildgrains Delivery Service

Last week I had a very long day at work and in my short drive home, I started thinking about what I would make for dinner. I had not thawed any meat and I was exhausted. I pulled into my driveway and saw the box – my Wildgrains delivery box! It was the best thing I had laid my eyes on because I knew that inside this box was going to be pasta and bread options and dinner was determined that moment! The cinnamon rolls were a dessert bonus.

Super Cocoa is made with pea protein and ancient grains and seeds

For kids and adults, there is a new cocoa that offers some incredible benefits. For me, Super Cocoa helps add more protein for my macro goals daily. When I am craving sweets, ending the night with a hot cocoa packed with pea protein and grains, seeds and greens helps me stay away from chocolate bars and sodas.

Super Cocoa is made with pea protein and ancient grains and seeds

One packet of Super Cocoa is about 20g. You get only 3g of fat, 8g of carbs and 6g of pea protein making it about 83 calories + whatever you decide to mix your cocoa with. I love warming unsweetened almond milk which is about 30 calories per 8oz and together that makes it a 113 calorie hot, sweet drink that brings me an extra 7g of protein to end my day. A standard packet of cocoa mix off store shelves leaves you with less than 1g of protein and about 15g of carbs!! Not mention over 3 teaspoons of sugar (Super Cocoa has less than 1tsp)! Same calories-much better macros!!

Within the better nutrients, Super Cocoa offers 2 types of real cacao and is loaded with organic veggies, fruits, and ancient grains & seeds. Serving this cocoa to the kids tastes so chocolaty, they won’t know it’s better for you! Super Cocoa can be mixed into hot or cold water or thrown in the blender with your favorite milk option to make a delicious smoothie. Visit RDCL Superfoods to learn more and buy this cocoa today for the cold seasons!

The benefits of consuming Manuka Honey

The benefits of consuming Manuka Honey

Maybe you have heard of manuka honey. If not, Manuka honey has gained attention for its abundance of therapeutic effects from certain bacteria ailments to skin and immunity improvements. The Manuka plant of New Zealand is climate-sensitive and only flowers two to six weeks per year, making the honey a scarce resource.

Manuka honey can be great for your gut. According to a report published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, manuka honey had been found to be potent against 7 different Helicobacter pylori (h pylori) strains, but a similar effect was not observed with other types of honey. Using a Manuka honey with a UMF 10+ or higher seems best. UMF™ 15+ sits in the middle, between everyday wellness and more therapeutic uses. For this reason, it’s our all-time best selling Manuka honey.

This honey is also great for your immune system. Lab tests have shown that manuka honey contains certain substances that can stimulate cytokine production. Cytokines are signaling proteins involved in immune reactions by the body. They kickstart the defense mechanisms of the body and gets it to fight off pathogens and diseases.

These are just a few of the many benefits of manuka honeys. Shop the New Zealand Honey Co. to begin adding these benefits to your health!
