Food For Life Baking Company: Ezekiel 4:9 Bread
Ezekiel 4:9 bread is a source of complete proteins, contains 18 amino acids, contains Vitamin C and B, is a great source of natural fiber, and has increased absorption of minerals. This bread is made from sprouted certified organic grains, which means… absolutely no flour! The sprouting breaks down grains into simple sugars, which means our body can digest it more comfortably and faster. Whether you simply spread the peanut butter on it or make a PB&J, you will get your carb fix in for the day and it will taste amazing.
Annie’s Homegrown Organic Pretzel Bunnies with Sea Salt
These sea-salted pretzel bunnies are a great alternative to the generic pretzel you probably ate while growing up. What you didn’t know as a kid, though, is that those pretzels are made with processed ingredients including; high-fructose-corn-syrup and artificial flavoring. All of Annie’s Homegrown products are certified organic and contain none of these strange ingredients. Adults and kids will love the mouth-savoring taste of A Loving Spoon peanut butter alongside a sea salted pretzel. This combo is perfect for your kid’s lunch or a snack at work. If you want to mix it up, try their honey wheat pretzels for an even sweeter taste.
Kodiak Cakes Super Foods, Energy Packed Flapjack and Waffle Mix
Instead of drenching your pancakes and waffles in the morning with syrup, try spreading a spoonful of A Loving Spoon peanut butter on top. The sweet taste of this peanut butter on a fluffy pancake or waffle is divine. Why Kodiak Cakes, though? Most of us are lazy in the morning when making breakfast. We get up at the crack of dawn and the fastest, healthiest option seems to be a protein shake and a banana. While the majority of quick and easy + just add water pancake and waffle mixes are made with unpleasing ingredients, Kodiak Cakes are not! This super food mix is made with whole wheat flour, whole oat flour, quinoa flour, golden flax meal, and chia flour. If you haven’t heard of quinoa, flax, and chia then you are missing out on a load full of health benefits, including: increased metabolism, reducing cholesterol, increased brain health, and much more. This mix is made by just adding water, which is perfect for the start of your busy day!
Salazon Chocolate Co. Organic Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt & Crushed Organic Coffee
What’s better than peanut butter? What’s better than chocolate? Well, that’s easy… peanut butter AND chocolate! Here is one of the most original combinations, but with a twist: COFFEE! Combine the taste of mocha coffee with the sweet and salty taste of A Loving Spoon peanut butter and you will be in store for one scrumptious flavor ride. Simply break off a square of crushed coffee dark chocolate, dip into peanut butter jar, insert into mouth, take every last second to enjoy and savor the flavor combination party going on in your mouth, repeat, and lastly… go buy more! This delicious bar is the greatest gift on earth, and it also gives back to the earth. Salazon Chocolate Co. gives back a portion of all proceeds to the Pacific Crest Trail Association in order to preserve and protect the trail. We love seeing other companies give back, just as we give back 10c per jar to local foster and orphan children. (Alternatively, if you can’t do dairy, you can choose our Purely Cacao Peanut Butter which uses 100% cacao powder + cacao nibs to give you that chocolate + peanut butter fix!)
Halo Top Ice Cream
Finally, there’s a healthy ice cream that actually taste identical to real ice cream. It’s packed with protein, low in fat, and even lower in carbs. It sounds WAY too good to be true, but I promise you it is real. Halo Top Ice Cream is all natural, contains no artificial sweeteners, no corn syrup, and no synthetic growth hormones. It’s also vegetarian-friendly, kosher, and gluten-free. It comes in seven flavors, vanilla and chocolate being my favorites. Take a scoop of A Loving Spoon peanut butter and spread on top or mix throughout. It’s the perfect late night snack that won’t ruin your diet. Or you can be crazy like me… and try it for breakfast.. 😉
