No Unhealthy Cooking, Just Eating Organic: Living Tree Community Foods
I want to share two discoveries from http://www.livingtreecommunity.com/ that, if you are a snacker like me, you can call a meal:
Under the “Nut Butter” tab on their site I found “Dream of Paradise – Organic Chocolate Ecstasy Butter” that…well…sounded like something for the bedroom so I ordered it. Ha! No, really, you would have thought that too as this is what it says on the website:
We begin with organic almonds. We add organic cacao and organic cherries and then organic honey, vanilla, coconut oil and a dash of salt. The combination of cacao and cherries gives it a profound, chocolaty flavor; that’s why we call it Chocolate Ecstasy. Both the almonds and the cherries are grown by California family farmers. They are the true husbandmen of their soil, plants, and animals. It is incumbent upon us to support them.
Handcrafted in Berkeley, California a wellspring of the human spirit.
Ingredients: Organic Almonds, Organic Cacao, Living Tree Organic Coconut Oil, Living Tree Organic Sweet Almond Oil, Organic Cherries, Organic Honey, Organic Vanilla Powder, and Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt.
To make this I meal I heavily smeared the butter onto sliced red delicious apples and also tried in on small graham crackers. Then, because once I have something sweet I immediately want something salty…
The second item I found, and though I didn’t immediately think “bedroom” I did think it would fulfill my passion for pistachios, “Alive Organic Pistachio Butter.” Website info:
Ingredients: Organic Pistachios, Organic Sesame Seeds, Living Tree Organic Black Sesame Oil, Organic Honey and a dash of Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt.
Why not incorporate Alive, Organic pistachios into your diet? You may experience a myriad of heath benefits. After all, the pistachio is the most nutrient dense of all nuts! Studies show that eating just 2.4 oz (14 kernels) of pistachios each day could significantly lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol up to 4.9%! The pistachio is full of anti-oxidants, containing more cholesterol-lowering phytosterols than a cup of green tea! Additionally, these little green powerhouses have a high potency of gamma-tocopherol, otherwise known as vitamin E.
Our pistachio butter is made from pistachios grown by California family farmers in the rich, alluvial soil of the wondrously fertile Central Valley. Pistachios also provide high quantities of essential nutrients: thiamin, Vitamin B6, potassium, and lutein (anti-oxidant for eye health). In just one ounce, Pistachios supply 12% of the daily recommended amount of fiber, among the highest fiber provider of all nuts!
In addition to these benefits, the pistachio is a low fat and low calorie food, compared to other nuts, containing just 3 calories each. Furthermore, studies show that “two ounces per day could be incorporated into dietary strategies… without significant changes in body mass index”.
This delightful and fresh nut will nourish your body and your taste buds!
Beginning with organic pistachios we have added our unique Living Tree Alive Black Sesame Oil and sesame seeds to help with spreadability. We have also added alive Brazilian Honey and a dash of Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt as natural preservatives.
