About Essential Living Foods:

“At Essential Living Foods, we believe you deserve only the best of the best. We travel the world the year round to bring you only the most nourishing heirloom superfoods emerging from indigenous cultures and unspoiled ecosystems.

Our Farms

It’s shocking, but in most cases when you walk into a supermarket and spend your dollars on superfoods, only pennies actually go to the farmers whose dedication and labor made it all possible. We know there’s a better way. We cut out the layers of middle-men and work directly with farmers. This means we can guarantee the quality of the superfoods you’re putting in your body, and we can do it more sustainably.

Our Mission

Our mission at Essential Living foods is to improve the health of the planet, its people, and their communities.

We work in close collaboration with small farms and indigenous groups to supply our customers with the purest, most nutritious Superfoods on Earth. Our global trade partnerships help nourish sustainable agricultural practices and support meaningful development. 1% of profits are donated back to the communities who supply our exceptional products (via our partnership with 1% For the Planet).”

Essential Living Foods is dedicated to fair, ethical, and holistic business practices with vendors, customers and investors and to maintaining a healthy, rewarding and values-driven work environment for employees and partners.”

My Thoughts:

I can’t think of anything (besides organic, raw, fresh produce) that I advocate more in terms of optimum nutrition than superfoods. Making sure they are organic & raw is key to receiving all of the benefits that these potent plants have to offer. Because I am such a strong believer and user of superfoods, I really get excited when I link up with brands who are creating these products that harness the goodness of these powerhouse foods.

Essential Living Foods is a really neat brand that has a product line containing several pure superfood powders, along with their new quinoa bars which they call “Keenwah” bars. All of their products are certified organic, with most of their products are organic AND raw. My only “ah man!” issue with me wanting a bit more in terms of quality is the fact that many of the ingredients in the superfood powder blends are not raw. To me, raw is right up there in importance with organic. Raw means that I’m getting the most possible nutrition available from that food. When it’s been heated, the nutrient content isn’t even close to what it used to be–a mere fraction. That said, I’ve learned that the ingredients in these superfood powders that are not raw have been low-heat milled.

Furthermore: “We choose the best option available that meets all of our quality standards. Sometimes we are not able to acquire and distribute raw products that meet these standards, but low-heat processed may be available instead. This helps us maximize the amount of nutritional quality even though its not completely raw. We only make claims, such as being 100% raw, when we have visited the source ourselves, and verified the entire process in-person.”

The question for me is: what kind of temperatures are we talking about? It’s obviously significant enough that the word “raw” cannot be used to describe them anymore. I’m very particular with superfoods. I take them for the nutritional benefits and if they are not organic and raw, then they are not as prized in my mind.

Having raw, organic cacao powder around has been an absolute “must” for about the last 6 months. It’s really taken my health to the next level, I believe. It’s a powerful antioxidant, acts as a natural energizer and simply makes my superfood shakes take better.

I love, love, love the idea and choice of ingredients in the Immune Formula packet and the Athletic Fuel packet. I have a bit of knowledge on several of these lesser known ingredients (such as Cordyceps, Camu Camu, Reishi, Tumeric, Amla, Accerola, Astragalus & Chaga) which all have incredible anti oxidizing, detoxifying and hormone balancing qualities in them. Again, though, it doesn’t appear that many of these ingredients are raw. I find myself going “ah man!” I surely wish they were all raw. To me, that would mean I’m truly getting a spectacular product–the best of the best.

The Keenwah bars rock in regards to taste. I also love that it’s not just your average bar. They use ingredients like turmeric, cayenne, cacao, yerba mate, cinnamon, hemp and other nutrient dense foods. These bars are not raw–that would be my suggested improvement. They taste really, really good, though. They’re also satisfying and you can feel good about the ingredient list–certainly no junk to be found. The decadence bars are coated in chocolate (chocolate without the additives is VERY healthy for you!) which makes them exceptionally scrumptious.

_______________________________________

My Thoughts:

I am fascinated by brands that take one healthy food and generate a plethora of products with it as its foundation. GoGo Quinoa makes quinoa-packed goodies that range from vegetarian paella to cake mix.

If you have read any of my prior blog posts, you are aware that ingredients are of the utmost importance to me, regardless of taste. After reading GoGo Quinoa’s ingredient lists, mission, and method behind farming, I feel great about this brand. The ingredient list is chock full of organic ingredients, and their products also boast an Eco Cert Label. This means, from the Eco Cert website:

“Ecocert inspects products on the basis of this specification, and issues organic certification. The products in question must bear the wording ‘Ecocert-certified’. This is the only labeling guaranteeing organic certification for the consumer. The product can consequently be marketed being described as ‘organic.'”

So, in other words, a brand with this certification has been deemed organic, meaning:

“grown avoiding the use of chemical fertilizers or synthetic products, in ground fertilized with organic fertilizers and natural minerals favorable to life within the soil, application of the precautionary principle.”

In regards to taste, these products are very enjoyable. Sometimes, you try a cake mix that contains more healthful ingredients and it just does not taste good. In this case, all of these GoGo Quinoa products are very tasty. You can tell that there is a little something different about them, but it’s not a bad thing. If anything, the use of quinoa and the other grains like amaranth add some earthiness to the dishes.

It’s worth mentioning that I typically avoid grains. I don’t consume them on a regular basis. There are many differing opinions and thoughts on quinoa, but I consider it to be a complete protein and a seed. A few of these products contain rice flour–which I would typically stray from. I try to get my carbohydrate intake from mainly fruit. With all of that rambling, I simply am meaning to say that these products are not a gigantic part of my diet. They are a way to splurge healthfully, sans gluten.

The cookies and the cake were my favorites (can you say sweet tooth?). I could have eaten the whole box of cookies in one sitting. The paella and quinoa burgers are great because they can serve as a delicious alternative for those that do not eat meat. I do consume meat, myself, but I realize that there are many of you out there that are perhaps looking for vegetarian alternatives. Meat eater or not, though, I would recommend GoGo Quinoa products to all of you. Great quality, great flavors and an all around great brand with a thoughtful mission and outlook on producing food.

___________________________________

My Thoughts:

This post will be brief and to the point, as I’ve review Amazing Grass products several times before and believe they are one of the highest quality lines of plant-based supplements and whole food sourced products available.

These greens packets (the Tangerine Immunity and Watermelon Energy) are my favorite flavors that Amazing Grass has come out with yet. The tangerine and watermelon flavors, respectively, do such a great job of masking the robust, greeny flavor. As always, these greens are loaded with organic ingredients and are incredibly nutrient rich. I love to mix them with water in a blender bottle and consume them pre or post workout. They’re not too heavy in your stomach like some protein shakes can be. I like that the Watermelon Energy contains a small amount of caffeine, which provides you with a little boost if you choose to consume it like I do, around workout time. It’s always a great idea to eat foods that boost and maintain a strong wall of immunity. Thus, I love that the Tangerine Immunity contains immune boosting antioxidants from plant sources.

As of late, I have been incorporating more organic whey protein than any other kind. But, I understand that whey is not comparable with vegan diets, hence Amazing Grass has smartly created a product (using plant based proteins) that will satisfying vegans and most meat eaters, alike. I really love the idea of getting a serving of greens and protein in one healthful, good-tasting packet–it’s a very unique product. In these Greens and Protein blends, Amazing Grass uses brown rice protein, hemp protein, quinoa protein and pumpkin seed protein. My assumption is that this combination is used to form a complete amino acid profile, making these proteins more digestible and bioavailable to the body. The only one of these four that I take issue with is the brown rice protein, as I aim to steer clear of grains (most of the time) and grain-derived proteins. But, I love the use of hemp, quinoa and pumpkin seed proteins. The Vanilla Spice is my favorite flavor of the two and I like it best with a half & half mixture of water and coconut milk in the bottle that’s pictured–it does a great job of breaking up the clumps. Any blender bottle will work. The Chocolate flavor is enjoyable, too, and boasts a similar nutritional profile to the Vanilla Spice blend.

OMG Organic Meets Good Protein & Superfood Supplement Review

20130810-115158.jpg

“OMG” Organic Meets Good Supplements

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

I’m always intrigued and immensely interested in trying new, organic supplements. I learned of this brand, “OMG”, after searching on Twitter for new, high quality options. I was immediately impressed with all of the literature I had found on these products. Here is a bit of information about this company and what their mission:

“Who We Are:

It all started with a group of passionate globe trekkers who traveled around the world in search of the finest organic superfood ingredients. We developed uniquely formulated blends, creating some of the healthiest and tastiest products on the planet. All of our items are made with passion, a strong sense of social-consciousness, and nutrients that are beneficial to your well-being. We strive to make living organically and actively much simpler. We invite you to try some of our products and superfood your day!

Our Three Principles:

1. Provide healthy and tasty products

Pack your bags and come take a virtual journey with us around the world! We want to introduce you to the magnificent regions from which our ingredients come so you can learn more about their rich cultures and realities. After all, we are all just part of one big puzzle called Mother Earth.”

I was lucky enough to sample two of OMG’s superfood powders and even their newly created quinoa based protein based powder.

Quinoa Based Protein Powder

OMG’s Description:

“The first ever quinoa based protein powder. Our formula is organic, vegan, delicious and practical to use. It’s for people who want a protein boost with superfoods like quinoa, hemp, coconut and sacha inchi. It boasts no sugar added, non-GMO, vegan, 100% organic, gluten free, allergen free and with a delicious taste. We do our best to bring the raw materials directly from the source; we import the quinoa and sacha inchi directly from the producers in Peru. There’s simply never been a product quite like this one so help us bring it to the marketplace and be among the first to try it!

The new product will have 10.5 grams of organic protein per 30g serving. It will be available both as a stand-up pouch with 15 servings per package and a box with 12 single serve pouches. It the convenient way to superfood your day with added protein at home or on-the-go.

The combination of ingredients makes it easy to digest. It is the perfect complement to the diet of vegans and vegetarians or people with intolerance to other sources of protein. The powder can be mixed into cereals, smoothies, shakes, bars, and more. But we can’t do it without you so donate and pick your pre-order today!”

My Description & Thoughts:

I feel lucky to have sampled a serving of this protein that is still being tweaked and formulated. It is excellent; it tastes earthy, delicious and satisfying. I mixed it with almond milk in a blender bottle and it was delicious. I am a huge fan of plant based proteins and am excited for OMG to generate more of this power protein concoction!

Check out and support (if you’d like) their campaign to produce more of this quinoa protein blend here.

Maqui Berry Antioxidant Powder

OMG’s Description:

“Add the Antioxidant Powder to a smoothie, dressing, or your daily granola and superfood your day! Maqui Berry has one of the highest amount of antioxidants of any fruit known. Antioxidants may help to remove free radicals from the body, that could lead to a decrease in cell damage, and ultimately assist in the anti-aging process. In addition to the antioxidants from Maqui Berries, our Antioxidant Maqui Berry superblend contains several other amazing ingredients like acai powder and a green tea extract, both of which have beneficial compounds. The green tea extract scored more than 10,000 ORAC units per gram! Together, these ingredients give you powerful and tasty boost for your daily intake of antioxidants.”

My Description & Thoughts:

I’d never heard of this berry before, but it sounds nutritionally dense and full of antioxidants that help keep our cells in tip top shape. It tastes rich and reminds me a lot of a blueberry mixed with a blackberry. I added this Maqui berry powder to my smoothie (with vanilla protein powder) and it was a nice, fruity compliment & antioxidant punch with the protein.

I loved trying this product and I love how easy it is to consume–simply mixed into my daily smoothie/drink. Berry yummy!

Pomegranate Vitamin Powder

OMG’s Description:

“Pomegranate has been consumed for centuries for its magnificent properties. With its high quantity of vitamins, it may help strengthen our bodies’ immune systems.* Our pomegranate superblend combines ingredients like Camu Camu powder, maqui berry powder, and a booster that contains Curry, Guava, Lemon, Sesbania, Amla, Holy Basil and Annato extracts,  providing substantial amounts of beneficial nutrients like Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, iron, and potassium, just to name a few. Just add the Vitamin powder to a yogurt, shake or any other food in need of vitamins and tasty boost! You won’t be disappointed.

My Description & Thoughts:

This product is similar in texture to the Maqui berry powder and has a sweet, fruit flavor. I am slightly biased to the pomegranate flavor because I am familiar with it and find it delectable.

Like the Maqui powder, this Pomegranate powder goes well in a smoothie or simply with almond/coconut milk. I see it as adding a healthy vitamin boost to my drink. Both of these products have been in the rotation when making my smoothies and I’ve been very happy with both of them.

These OMG products are a dream to individuals who are on the constant search for plant based foods to supplement the current diet.
