Our Latest Creation: Zinc Cantata Selenium Sonata – Alive & Organic

Featuring Brazil nuts, Almonds, Cashews, Pumpkin seeds and Sesame seeds.

We have created a nut butter for these times. We call it Zinc Cantata, Selenium Sonata. A considerable amount of information has become available in regard to the anti-viral benefits of zinc and selenium. For zinc it includes almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds, for selenium – Brazil nuts and sunflower seeds.

The flavors of the nuts and seeds are accentuated by our Hawaiian Native Forest Honey and a touch of maple sugar.

May we suggest that you research the benefits of zinc and selenium.

Mid Summer Sale – California Heritage Olive Oil 750ml (Extra Virgin) – High Polyphenol, Alive, Organic & Dry Farmed

On Sale for $62.99 – Regularly $72.99

If you buy 3 or more, you get an additional discount of 10%.

Now in an elegant 750ml dark glass bottle.

This olive oil is very fresh and rich in antioxidants. It has a high available biophenol content : 605 ppm (parts per million) compared with 222 ppm for most extra virgin olive oils. In other words its biophenol content is 2.7 times the average. Very high phenolic content and excellent stability should provide long shelf life of over a year as well as beneficial health value. This olive oil has, along with its bitterness and pungency, mineral and green vegetable organoleptic characteristics.

We invite you to rejoice in its robust, sharp flavor. Those in the know will understand how its pungency enhances the flavors of food.

When analyzed by World Olive Labs (Greece) it has been shown to have very high levels of oleocanthal, oleacein and oleuropein aglycon. These are all natural biophenols. We suggest you research their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cardioprotective and neuroprotective activity.

New! Items For August

Red Lentils (Decorticated) – Organic

Developed by American plant scientists to cook quickly, decorticated red lentils have had their seed coats removed.

Lentils are an excellent source of magnesium, folate, soluble fiber, and iron. Of all legumes and nuts, lentils contain the third highest level of protein. Twenty-six percent of lentils’ calories are attributed to protein.

Combine with traditional Indian spices for a satisfying vegetarian meal. Or enjoy as a side dish with roasted meats or veggies. If not overcooked, these legumes hold their shape and are tasty in soups and purees.

 

Alive Manuka Honey – Back in Stock!

Active Manuka Honey, produced only in New Zealand, is known globally as a potent and all natural antibacterial agent. It is produced by bees that collect nectar from the flowers of the Manuka tree. It is full of potent antioxidants. Rejoice in its rich,creamy carmel flavor with fruity accents. Rejoice in its liveliness. Rejoice in its regenerative and restorative qualities.

Honey has been used for centuries to treat and heal an abundance of conditions. It was a favorite among ancient Greeks and Egyptians for treating wounds and promoting immune system health.
We invite you to do research into its healing and beneficial qualities.

 

Nutritional Yeast (Large Flake) – Organic – Now in a Glass Jar!

These flakes are a favorite for adding savory flavor to soups, sauces, gravies, and prepared foods where umami flavor is needed.

Yeast has been an ingredient for baking and fermentation for more than 3000 years.

Nutritional yeast is made from a single-celled organism of fungi called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. In a controlled environment it is cultured, left to grow, then deactivated, harvested, washed and dried. The deactivation process prevents the yeast from being used as a leavening agent.

Nutritional yeast is a flavor enhancer that offers naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and micro-nutrients. These large flakes are a bit spicier and have more yeast flavor than other nutritional yeast.

A delightful pumpkin seed spread made from American pumpkin seeds. Very nourishing and energizing. A balanced source of good protein. High in zinc, a mineral that aids the healing process.

Brazil Nuts are a concentrated dietary source of selenium, a trace element your body needs for proper functioning. Selenium boosts your immune system; it fights viral infections.

Almond Cashew Brazil Nut Innovation Butter – Alive & Organic


Dedicated to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, the creative geniuses who have done so much to shape the modern epoch.

Starting with almonds grown by California family farmers, we’ve added Brazil Nuts.

We’ve added cashews for smoothness and spread-ability along with California sundried raisins, honey for delight and a pinch of Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt to bring out the flavors.

Thank You Kindly For Your Encouraging Words

Greetings,
I just want to express my deepest gratitude for absolutely everyone who grows the food, processes products and helps them arrive at my front door. I am so very grateful for the work ya’ll are doing. You are a strong cord of hope for me in these changing times. Thanks so much for all everyone is doing.
Many blessings and Much Love,
MoonshadoB

Hi!
I wanted to thank you for getting my order of the Lake Baikal pine nuts out to me so quickly! My friends loved the quinoa salad I made for them today. I probably should order more at one time because they are so good.
Be well,
Justine

Thank you for making such a great product. My kiddos have a life threatening peanut allergy and your almond butter is the only one they’ll eat. We have tried other brands but we always come back to your almond butter. I love that it is still possible to spread it at the bottom of the jar!
Kind regards,
Heather
