Raw Food Bars and Tea for Life

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

I’m a big fan of getting nutrients in however we can, and these Regeneration USA products are a quick and easy way to keep your body running at its best.  

Their anti-aging Whole Food Bars are famous for their antioxidant strength. They contain a huge amount of protein, which is so helpful when you’re trying to lose weight, as well as health-boosting foods like Goji Berries, Cacao nibs and Blueberries. They are 100% raw and made without processed sugar, corn syrup, preservatives, or synthetic sweeteners. Oh, and they taste great…which is important in a snack!

Their anti-aging tea contains Jiaogulan, which is known in Chinese medicine as “the herb of immortality.” It promotes cardiovascular health, digestion, strength, endurance, and immunity, and is also believed to help your body combat stress.

To me, it just makes sense to give your body as much health-boosting energy as possible, don’t you think?

Manna Feast

This weeks special:

(If you still need to sign up to receive my specials, you can go here for more information! This is the only way you can purchase these items, is to be signed up for my super special – its FREE to sign up and you get amazing weekly deals!)

You’ve all heard me say how important greens are – I mean, we pretty much get most of the nutrients we need from those dark leafies! But what if you just don’t like the taste of greens?

I know, it’s a problem for some people. Others just want some variety…or to indulge their sweet tooth now and then. This Manna Feast is a super alternative. It’s packed with a ton of fruits, berries, land and sea vegetables like elderberry, carrots, sweet potato, and other nutrients like chlorella and probiotics.

You can put a couple of scoops into a glass of water and get a refreshing cold drink that’s sweet for your tastebuds…and your body.

Renee’s Raw Chocolate!

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Renee's Raw Chocolate - 2 Pack

 Alright, I know I have a lot of favorites, especially for snacking, but… this chocolate is seriously THE BEST I’ve ever had!

A lot of Raw Chocolates are super sweet or they have too much coconut oil or they have a weird aftertaste. Renee’s Raw Chocolates are seriously the best I’ve ever tasted! We ran a special on these when I first started with open sky and we sold out. We made it even more affordable and lowered the price of these so order them now because these will definitely not last!

Packed with goji berries for antioxidants, vitamin C, amino acids, and minerals, they’re a chocolate lover’s healthy dream come true!

Regenerating Skin Spray and Immune System Regenerator

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Regenerating Skin Spray and Immune System Regenerator

Even when we’re eating raw and healthy, supplements can go a long way. They help neutralize toxins, balance your ph levels, and deliver tons of good stuff to your body like fulvic minerals, which are known for their cellular regeneration properties. 
I’m a big fan of getting nutrients in however we can, and these Regeneration USA products are a quick and easy way to keep your body running at its best.  The Immune System Regenerator strengthens your immune system and can even help with weight control (because they detoxify you). The Regenerating Skin Spray contains essentials amino acids that your skin needs to look its best, and while also helping to restore, regain and replenish those lost fulvic minerals.  

To me, it just makes sense to give your body as much health-boosting energy as possible. If you’re going to take supplements, they might as well be top-notch, so these are absolutely the ones to go for!

Hemp Protein, Hemp Seeds and Hemp Oil special!

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

 This was one of the first specials that I ran on opensky, but since people love hemp and use a lot of it, I wanted to run this again. Make sure you order this quickly as this special will run out fast. It’s a popular item!

Remember, you have to be signed up to receive my specials. Signing up is easy and free!

One of the biggest questions I get asked about going raw is how to get enough protein. We all know that dark green leafies are the highest source, but what about when you’re on the run?
If I can’t sit down to a full meal or when I just want a boost, hemp products are my go-to quick and nutritious solution.
You can make a delicious smoothie with hemp powder (a great way to quickly replenish your muscles after a heavy workout!). Sprinkle hempseeds on top of salads, raw ice cream, even brownies. Prep a tasty salad dressing in advance using hemp oil to ensure you’re getting those all-important omega oils. 
All three are easy ways to power up and feel great!

Here’s the recipe for my favorite power boost smoothie recipe:

  • Nutiva hemp powder
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Coconut water
  • (optional: kale for a little extra green power)
    Combine in a blender and enjoy!

Brads Raw Chips!

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

This weeks super special! Brads Raw Chips!

I’m a snacker. That’s all I do is snack. I don’t really eat breakfast, lunch and dinner – I tend to graze throughout the day whenever I’m hungry. This way of eating works for me really well, because when you’re eating raw, you digest quicker so you need to eat more often.

Even back when I was bodybuilding, I’ve always felt better eating six small meals and snacks throughout the day. When you eat three big meals, your metabolism rises and crashes. But this way you keep your metabolism stoked all day, so you have more energy and burn more calories. One of my new go-to snacks of choice are Brad’s Chips.

The crackers are great because they’re crunchy and have really distinct flavors. And the kale chips are fantastic. Let’s be honest: we can all make kale chips at home in the dehydrator, but do you ever really find the time?

Kale is so good for you, but how often can you really get it in? These are great to have on hand instead of waiting five hours to dehydrate. If you’re new to this kind of eating, give the snacking system a try. I think you’ll be surprised to see how much energy you have – and how easily you lose weight!

Win an Excalibur Dehydrator! And… This Weeks Super Special!

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

I know many of you have heard me talk about how excited I am to be able to offer you amazing products at huge discounts. Its so easy to receive my inside sales and save tons of money on my favorite products! All you have to do is sign up here. You can also read more about how this works on my specials page.

Here’s more good news though…

To share in my excitement, Im personally giving away a 9 tray Excalibur Dehydrator to one lucky person who signs up to follow me on Opensky. (Don’t worry, if your already signed up, your automatically entered!) This sweepstakes is running now until May 8th. So sign up now! Read more about signing up here.

And if your already signed up to receive my weekly specials, here is today’s  which just started and will end tomorrow the 27th.

The collection of products in this Living Intentions bundle really hit the mark when it comes to taste! No joke, the Hemp & Greens cereal is one of the best things I’ve ever tasted. I ate the entire bag in one sitting! It’s packed with greens so you wouldn’t know it to look at it (I mean, green cereal can look a little weird, I know), but you’ll be shocked at how good it is.

Their two versions of Gone Nuts have SO much flavor. They’re actually a little spicy; I don’t like wicked hot, but these are just right. The sprouted pumpkin seeds have great saltiness to them so I use them as a snack straight out but you can also put them into a salad or mix them with dried fruits like goji berries and cacao nibs for a super-health trail mix.

I know, I’m going on and on, but that’s how good this stuff is! Lastly there’s the Original Salad Booster – this is really cool. When you’re making a salad, even though the raw veggies are nutritious, this is packed with things like spirilina and chlorella that you wouldn’t normally get that are so essential. It’s like a grain with nice salty, briny kick to it that gives a serious boost to your salad. You can also put it into raw soups, on top of sprouted grains…lots of stuff.

Once you get a taste of these, I’m sure you’ll come up with a lot of other ideas for how to use them!

The Details

  • Cilantro Lime Pistachios & Pepitas 3.5oz
  • Rosemary Garlic Pistachios & Almonds 3.5oz
  • Hemp & Greens, Superfood Cereal 9oz.
  • Chia Ginger, Superfood Cereal 9oz.
  • Salad Booster, Original 3oz.
  • Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds, Himalayan Salted 8oz.

Raw Macaroons!

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

 

These macaroons were a huge hit when I sold them on the site. They are one of my favorite treats!!!

“Delicious, good for you, and good for the planet…what more could we possibly ask for in a treat?!” — Alissa

Emmy’s organics was started by two very cool twenty-somethings, Samantha and Ian, who are passionate about following their dream and sharing their love for pure foods, healthy bodies & sacred commerce. And trust me, you can feel the love they put into every bite of these amazing macaroons.

This was one of the first handpicked products I sold on OpenSky and I’m featuring them again because they are just such a favorite of mine. I’ve tasted other packaged macaroons and they mostly taste like just dates, but you can really taste the bits of coconut in these, which is exactly the way it should be. They’re sweet (but not sickeningly so like so many other brands) and really moist. And the flavors are incredible! 

Samantha and Ian use only the finest raw, vegan, organic ingredients and biodegradable, earthy-friendly resources for their packaging, so you can always feel good about choosing their products.

Delicious, good for you, and good for the planet…what more could we possibly ask for in a treat?!

Super-Conductive Vitamins and Ionic Minerals

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
Todays super deal is one of my favorites!!!
Its the Ambaya Gold Products
It’s been a cold, nasty winter here in the Northeast, and so my
husband and I have been sneaking off to Florida every chance we get
for some sunshine. As much as I love getting away, though, I don’t
love the colds and other ailments that can happen from travelling on
airplanes frequently. But thanks to my trusted Ambaya Gold
Super-Conductive Vitamins and Ionic Minerals, I haven’t gotten sick
once from all those flights!
I like these because they are in liquid form, which makes it easier to
take. I personally don’t like swallowing big vitamins (they feel like
they get stuck in your esophagus, right?). Plus, pills take time to
break down in your body. In liquid form the vitamins and minerals go
straight into your system faster, and you don’t need to use your
digestive energy to break them up.
A lot of times when you’re taking supplements you don’t even  really
notice a difference, but when I started taking these, I actually felt
them working. They give you more energy and more of an overall feeling
of vitality…and, of course, a good excuse to hop on an airplane
knowing your immune system is good to go!
