This year has been phenomenal, but there is so much more to experience before the new year ends. I’m mainly talking about the sweet tasty treats from the earth. The Wild Foods Co. is your destination for organic seasonings, fresh coffee beans, teas, super powders and moisturizing skin care products. If you’ve been following my blog you know how much I love organic living, so when I found Wild Foods Co. it was second nature. The rich organic products from this company is straight from the earth amazing, so let’s embrace the different flavors of their first Christmas gifts to us.
My very first Wild Foods Co. Collection!!
1. Wild Sweet Nibs:
My first impression of the Wild Sweet Nibs was very interesting. Let me explain, when I began to eat the cocoa nibs, it had a dark chocolate flavor complimented with the coconut sugar covering it and then finishing with a bitter after taste. At first the bitter flavor was very alarming, but then I got and mixed the Sweet Nibs with some organic coconut milk ice cream and chocolate chips cookies. This took care of the after taste. These fun creation with the sweet nibs are A+mazing. The flavor is not too sweet, so you do not have to worry about taking inthe extra sugar and calories this holiday season.
My Wild Sweet Nibs Cookies:
The Wild Sweet Nibs are made by carefully crushing raw organic cacao beans (our favorite Mayan superfood). Then the crushed cacao “nibs” are rolled in coconut sugar.
Wild Himalayan Natural Unrefined Pink Salt
Pink Himalayan Salt is the best natural seasoning that I’ve ever used. Ok it’s been a year an a half since I became a vegan and let’s just say Himalayan salt is my new best friend in terms of flavoring. This organic salt has so many beneficial uses for your overall health, you can use it in various dinner dishes and timeless desserts. Here are some Pros to using Himalayan Salt:
- Detoxifies the body by balancing systemic pH.
- Improves hydration by providing trace minerals.
- Improves mineral status of the body.
- Reduces muscle cramps by improving minerals and hydration.
- Helps balance blood sugar.
Mind you Himalayan Salt comes in different textures, such as fine or coarse. You can make anything using this secret ingredient.
3. Wild Turmeric Powder:
Along with Pink Himalayan, Turmeric Power is the fountain of youth powder and brings an authentic Indian spice to your favorite dishes. The Wild Turmeric Powder comes straight from the root and into your favorite smoothies or dishes in minutes. I am not a stranger to Turmeric, in fact I use it all the time in my favorite curried tofu recipe. Besides the incredible tastes, Turmeric has life changing benefits.
Here’s a little facts:
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. However, the curcumin content of turmeric is not that high… it’s around 3%, by weight (2).
The powder is very light, not too offensive and is the best way to keep the aches of the winter away. Due to the symptoms of inflammation and even helps with skincare treatments.
Now for my favorite part of the whole Wild Foods Co. Collection!!
4. Wild Coconut Oil:
The final product from Wild Foods Co. is the best thing since slice bread was created. The Organic Cold- Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil. First off the smell of the coconut reminds me of my home in the Virgin Islands. The oil spreads on smooth and creamy which is the greatest thing ever! Usually, I have to rub other coconut oil products in my hands for a long time only for it melt. Thankfully my days of working hard is over. Also since my hair is natural and the winter breeze brings excessive dryness, this product came in handy at the perfect time.
I will be featuring it on my Youtube Channel: VivantWithDanna
Here are other important benefits about Coconut Oil:
Coconut oil is high in natural saturated fats. Saturated fats not only increase the healthy cholesterol (known as HDL) in your body, but also help to convert the LDL “bad” cholesterol into good cholesterol’s. By Increasing the HDL’s in the body, it helps promote heart health, and lower the risk of heart disease.
