INGREDIENTS WITH A PURPOSE
Handpicked to ensure the highest quality, all the time.
Unlike simple carbohydrates that get digested quickly and cause your blood sugar to spike, oatmeal is a complex carb that is digested slowly.
As a result, the sugar is absorbed into your bloodstream at a much slower rate, so instead of feeling a quick boost of energy, oatmeal provides sustained energy that will keep you fueled for a longer period of time.
Peanut butter is a natural source of protein and is a good source of healthy fats, so it’s no coincidence that it’s the base for all of our Protein Cookies.
To add to the perks of this tasty treat, it’s also an excellent source of potassium and provides you with heart-healthy vitamins like folate, vitamin E, magnesium and resveratrol.
Our Protein Cookies are packed with plant-based protein…18 grams of it to be exact! Our blend of brown rice protein and pea protein is a complete source of protein that provides you with all 9 essential amino acids.
Milk proteins, like whey, are not easily digested by everyone. Eating plant-based proteins is an easy way to get the nutrition you need in a sustainable, compassionate manner.
These tiny seeds may not look like much, but don’t let their size fool you. They are good sources of fiber and one of the best plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
Studies show that omega-3s may reduce inflammation, the risk of heart disease, cancer and arthritis, and they also have a positive effect on your memory.
Even though quinoa (pronounced “keen-wah”) cooks and tastes like a grain, it’s safe for those who are allergic or sensitive to gluten.
We love it because it’s plant-based and is considered a complete protein, which means it contains all nine of the essential amino acids your body needs.
Just a 1 ounce serving of chia seeds (approx. 2 tablespoons) will provide you with 4 grams of protein, 11 grams of fiber, plus a variety of vitamins and minerals like vitamin B, D and E, calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc.
Iron helps transport oxygen throughout your bloodstream, so when you don’t have enough of it you may feel like you need a nap because your body is working harder to get the oxygen it needs.
