High protein and low cholesterol; raised naturally
Grass Fed Bison has been a staple of the plains of North America for centuries and has been providing food on Planet Earth for thousands of years. A product bearing the label “Grass-Fed Bison” denotes that no grain finishing, antibiotics, hormones or animal by-products were ever used in the care and raising of the bison.
Further all “Grass-Fed Bison” have to have been born and raised in the United States, spent their entire lives allowed to fulfill their natural behaviors and basic instincts of grazing at all times, and never be kept confined on feedlots.
Reports indicate that grass-fed bison is lower in fat and cholesterol than beef, chicken, or salmon. Bison has also proven to be higher in protein, iron and vitamin B12 than beef; which makes it an excellent clean protein choice for optimal nutrition.
Bison are sometimes referred to as Buffalo¸ however, this is a misnomer. Bison and Buffalo are from the same genus, Bovidae, however the American bison lives only in North America, while the two main buffalo species reside in Africa (the African cape buffalo) and Asia (the Asian water buffalo). A small population of bison relatives, known as the European bison lives in isolated parts of Poland.
High-fiber, vitamin rich, and anti-inflammatory
Sweet Potatoes are an excellent source of Vitamin A, B5, B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, magnesium, Vitamin C, and carotenoids. Fat-free, they are low in sodium, high in fiber and are considered to be anti-inflammatory. As sweet as they are, they are low on the glycemic index and have fewer calories than white potatoes.
Thought to originate in South America, in Peru there are sweet potato remnants dating back 8000 years. Sweet potato flour or powder is naturally grain- and gluten-free, low-fat, low-sodium, helps to steady blood sugar, and is a good source of fiber.
Natural sweetness, with fiber and potassium
The “Queen of all Dates” has a light color and a soft, honey-like taste. Firmer than the popular Medjool date, Deglet Noor is the leading export date from Algeria, Tunisia and Libya. Dates have been a staple food in the Middle East and South Asia for eons. There is archeological evidence that shows cultivation of the fruit as far back as around 4000 B.C. One hundred grams of this fruit will provide the following nutrients: 75 grams of carbohydrates, 8 grams of dietary fiber, and 656 milligrams of potassium.
Increases energy and good cholesterol; fights infections
For thousands of years, coconut has been the primary source of food and medicine for Pacific Islanders, who are one of the healthiest, longest-lived people in the world. Those who have maintained their traditional diets are free of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other degenerative conditions common in the Western cultures.
Shredded, unsweetened, mature coconut is composed mostly of fat – 90% of which is saturated in the form of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which are associated with many health benefits. These include the increase of HDL (good cholesterol), rapid source of energy, and an increase in satiety and metabolic rate. The MCFAs in coconut are made up of lauric, caprylic, and capric acids, which are proven to be anti-microbial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal. As well as being a good source of iron and zinc, the phenolic compounds in coconut act as antioxidants. Because MCFAs are readily digested and absorbed, they are an important form of nutrition for people with serious digestive issues. MCFAs are thought to improve memory in Alzheimers patients and certain types of memory disorders.
Anti-carcinogen; promotes cardiovascular health
Native to North America, the sunflower grows in the temperate zones of many countries. The sunflower kernel is the edible heart of the sunflower seed and is considered to be a good source of phytochemicals that can protect against disease. Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, all B vitamins, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, iron, and zinc. Compared to other nuts and seeds, sunflower kernels contain high levels of compounds that have been shown to offer a variety of health benefits such as: vitamin E, betaine, phenolic acids, choline, arginine, and lignans.
“According to research completed in March 2001 by Dr. K. Phillips of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, [the] sunflower kernel is rich in a number of components that have been shown to protect against cardiovascular and other diseases and to act as antioxidants and anti-carcinogens; thus the kernel can be considered a functional food. ….[This] amazing kernel adds a nutritional wallop to a wide array of products such as breads, muffins, crackers, and snack foods.”

Antioxidants and immune system support
Native to Northwestern China, Goji berries have been used as a health tonic in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 6,000 years. Also known as Lycium barbarum fruit, the oblong berries are bright red and contain 20-40 small seeds. The berries can be eaten raw, cooked, dried like raisins, made into a juice or wine, brewed for tea or prepared as a tincture. But it’s the extracted phytochemicals used in nutritional supplements that provide the most potent health benefits.
More commonly called wolfberries in China, concentrated forms of Goji berries have been used in traditional Chinese medicine to manage diabetes, high blood pressure, fever and age-related eye problems. The dark red color found in goji berries contain natural anti-oxidants (mostly polysaccharides), which may help protect the body against oxidative damage. They also contain vitamins: C, B2 and A, plus iron and selenium. They are considered by many to boost the immune system and brain activity and improve life expectancy.
In addition, Goji berries contain complex starches called Lycium barbarum polysaccharides which may benefit immune function and reduce the type of fatigue that is associated with living at high altitudes.
Goji berries contain an abundant amount of Zeaxanthin, which is an antioxidant in the carotenoid family (a group of naturally-occurring, fat-soluble pigments found in plants, which play a key role in our immune system support). Also, these nutrition-packed berries contain beta-carotene, which is a carotenoid pigment in orange-red foods like goji, pumpkin, carrot, and salmon. Beta-carotene is important for the synthesis of vitamin A, which is a fat-soluble nutrient and antioxidant that is essential for normal growth, vision, cell structure, bones and teeth, and healthy skin. The beta-carotene content in goji berries is among the highest in edible plants.
Honey is a natural, sweet food created by bees using nectar from flowers. The sweetness of honey is derived from fructose and glucose monosaccharides, and most people perceive it to be approximately as sweet as granulated sugar. A product bearing the label “Organic Honey” will have been tested to guarantee that it does not contain any residues of pesticides or environmental pollutants.
Reduces inflammation; boosts muscle recovery
Both sweet and sour species of cherries originated in Europe and western Asia; they do not cross-pollinate. Cherries grow in most temperate climates. In many parts of North America they are one of the first fruits to ripen.
Montmorency cherries, which account for 95% of worldwide tart cherry production are linked to anti-inflammatory benefits, including reduced pain from gout and arthritis as well as an extensive list of heart health benefits. Elite athletes are turning to tart cherries to help speed the recovery process as studies suggest that Montmorency tart cherry juice has the ability to reduce muscle pain and weakness after bouts of intense strength training as well as after long-distance running.
The pain associated with exercise involves inflammation, muscle damage and oxidative stress. The high concentration of anthocyanins found in tart cherries is thought to help with all three types of damage.
Antioxidants, magnesium, fiber, and iron
Known as the “Food of the Gods” by ancient South American cultures, raw cacao is now prized as a healthy and delicious form of dark chocolate. Cacao nibs are made from whole, raw cacao beans that have been crumbled into small chunks. Raw cacao contains antioxidants, magnesium, fiber, and iron. When raw, chocolate is called cacao, when cooked it is referred to as cocoa.
Rich in antioxidants, B vitamins, and minerals; Increases "good" cholesterol
Pecans are native to the Southeastern United States, with Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi as the major growers. A member of the walnut and hickory family, the pecan is rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids and has the highest fat content of any vegetable product. Pecans have a caloric value similar to butter.
An excellent source of anti-oxidants, regular consumption of pecans can help to decrease LDL or “bad cholesterol” and increase HDL or “good cholesterol.” Pecans contain vitamin E, beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin as well as several important B-complex vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folates. Pecans are also a rich source of minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium.
Anti-inflammatory for digestive health
Fennel is in the same botanical family as carrots, anise, licorice and celery. It has a pleasant, licorice-like flavor. Native to the Mediterranean, it is now found throughout the world. Fennel is anti-inflammatory and used for various digestive problems such as heartburn, intestinal gas, bloating and as a diuretic.
