Gluten-free products for the health-conscious
I hope that many of you who started New Year’s resolutions to eat healthy, exercise, and live an active lifestyle have kept it up these past two months! I know several people who didn’t get a great start in January so they hit the reset button in February. And others who have kept their goals since January 1st. If both those months were less than successful for you, maybe March is your New Year!
Here are three products for the health-conscious consumer – those who are looking to keep up with their progress or start fresh.
Nuco Coconut Wraps
Cutting carbs is tough. Luckily, with Nuco’s wraps, made from coconut, you can have a healthy, low-carb sandwich wrap. These wraps are unlike anything you’ve likely seen before. They are made of just 3 simple ingredients: organic coconut meat, organic coconut water, and organic virgin coconut oil. The result is a wrap that’s flexible and doesn’t crumble. There’s no need to heat or refrigerate these, making them convenient for things like picnics or camping. They are keto-friendly, Paleo, certified organic and non-GMO, and contain only 70 calories and 4 grams of net carbs.
Available in Original, Turmeric, and Moringa for savory wraps, and Cinnamon for dessert wraps. Check out their recipes for some ideas on how to use these.
Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate
Collagen is important for a well-functioning body. Joints, skin, cartilage, muscles, and many other parts of the body depend on it. If you exercise often and notice joint pain, try adding collagen to your meals – in soups, smoothies, sauces, etc. If you want to try to improve the feel of your skin or hair, try taking collagen. What makes Great Lakes Gelatin’s collagen hydrolysate a great choice for collagen is that it’s non-GMO, 95% bioavailable (meaning it’s easily utilized by the body), easy to digest, and mixes up well in hot or cold liquids (some collagens I’ve tried have difficulty mixing well into cold liquids).
Check out their products and you’ll see why Great Lakes Gelatin has been a leader in producing collagen products since 1922!
Gabriella’s Kitchen skinnypasta
Skinnypasta is exactly what it sounds like – pasta for folks who want to stay fit. It’s pasta made with a superfood called teff, and it contains iron, zinc, copper, and manganese. A serving of this stuff packs protein, fiber, and real substance to keep you fuller longer. Also, 20% of the fiber in teff pasta is a resistant starch, which may aid in weight loss management – how’s that for skinny pasta?!
Skinnypasta’s superfood teff line is available in plain penne and macaroni shapes to create your own pasta dishes, or check out their Teff Penne in Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, Teff Macaroni & Cheese, and Teff VEGAN Macaroni & Cheese.
