Cashews | A nutrient-dense tree nut that lowers the risk of heart disease and encourages the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
Pecans | A tree nut with lots of heart-healthy, monounsaturated fats. They can help decrease LDL or “bad cholesterol” and increase HDL or “good cholesterol”.
Walnuts | A tree nut with powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. They have a high concentration of nutritional benefit, including healthy fats, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E. A few walnuts go a long way – just seven contain 60% of your daily recommended dose of omega 3 fatty acids!
Maple Syrup | A natural sweetener produced from the sap of maple trees. It provides a deliciously distinct flavor as well as a healthy dose of manganese for cellular energy production, zinc for heart and immune function, and potassium for reducing blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Raw Cacao | The powdered form of raw cacao beans. Raw cacao is a superfood (not to be confused with cocoa powder, which is highly processed and comparatively low in health benefits). It’s one of the highest sources of magnesium in nature, and it has 4 times the antioxidants of green tea. Raw cacao also triggers the release of endorphins and mood-enhancing neurochemicals in the brain due to a compound called phenethylamine.
Dates | The fruit of the date palm tree. Dates can be used as a low-glycemic sweetener while also providing high-quality dietary fiber, antioxidants and the essential B vitamins that help with metabolic function.
