I think I’m in Love
I have to confess, I am infatuated. Yes head over heals. I just turned the corner and there they were…
At the organic expo: Loving Earth, a wonderful Melbourne based company that creates a range of scrumptious organic raw products. They seem to offer everything I was looking for in one shop! This is great for the diet but not so much for the wallet. But then hey, I have decided to spend my money on health and taste before fashion and alcohol no?
Their products cover a range of raw fooders/whole fooders ingredients such as agave nectar, raw cacao products, raw butters, raw olives, fruits nuts and seeds. Their major draw cards, however, are their range of raw snack foods and raw chocolates. These include organic raw chocolates of many delectable flavours, organic sweet coconut and cacao spread, organic activated flavoured nuts*, organic raw flavoured kale chips, organic raw kale salad sprinkles and the creme` del a creme` of muesli: Organic Activated Deluxe Bukinis. These products are not only healthy but taste delicious!
The chocolates are simply divine. They are hand made in Melbourne, I think using raw cacao, and cover a range of different flavours. My favourites are Sour Cherry and Acai Berry and Lacuma and Macca light. The inclusion of these super foods include a whole gamete of nutritional benefits.
The Kale chips are extremely moreish: crisp and crunchy to bite and taste a bit like salty chips but with much more depth of flavour. They are dehydrated at a low temperature to retain the enzymes, nutrients and minerals and flavoured with cashews, carrots, coriander and Himalayan salt. The salt is quite subtle and their is delicious creamy sweetness with a hint of spice. Unlike your packet of chips, they also provide a rich source of protein, copper, magnesium, vitamins K, C and A and antioxidants.
The deluxe bukinis is the goddess of all muesli. The base is made from activated caramelised buckwheat which is sweetened with agave nectar not sugar and then mixed with a range of delicious super foods, nuts, seeds and fruits. It provides a gluten free and high alkaline alternative to regular muesli. A delicious treat for the weekend or decadent daily breakfast. YUM!
And to top it off this company has a conscious too, supporting the restoration of native ecosystems and fair trade with the Indigenous communities they source their products from.
Sigh. Could they be more perfect?
So go to your health food store and ask for loving earth. Or visit them on line.
I am sure you will fall in love too.
*What does activated mean?
Activated nuts and seeds are easily digested and more nutritious than raw or roasted nuts. Raw nuts and seeds have enzyme inhibitors making them less easy to digest and inhibiting our ability to absorb nutrients. Activated nuts and seeds have been soaked to ensure the enzyme inhibitor found in raw seeds and nuts has been released, then dehydrated between 38-40 degC to maintain optimum nutritional value.
