Maca Maple Cashews
These sweet maple superfood cashews are a delicious blend of raw cashews, the butterscotch-like flavor of maca and sweet maple syrup. Maca is a root from the Andes Mountains of Peru that is a complex, nutrient-dense whole food source of vitamins, amino acids, plant sterols, essential minerals and essential fatty acids. Maca has been traditionally used as a stress-fighting adaptogen, and to increase stamina, boost libido and combat fatigue. Raw cashews contain many beneficial fats, and they're also a good source of plant-based protein (5 grams per ounce) and minerals including iron, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc, copper and manganese. Maple syrup is a delicious natural sweetener that provides trace minerals and vitamins. The SRP is $6.99.
Chia Rosemary Pepitas
These savory Italian superfood pepitas feature a combination of nutritious chia seeds and crunchy pepitas (the culinary term for pumpkin seeds) with classic Italian seasonings: garlic and rosemary. Chia seeds are a plentiful source of omega fatty acids and protein and they also contain a good supply of antioxidants, complex carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Pepitas provide an abundance of amino acids, unsaturated fats including omega-3, and minerals such as calcium, potassium, zinc and phosphorous. They're also a good source of beta-carotene, and vitamins B, C, D, E and K. Garlic contains healthy compounds such as sulfur-containing allicin, oligosaccharides, arginine-rich proteins, selenium and flavonoids. Rosemary is a powerful herb known to be a rich source of antioxidants. The SRP is $5.99.
Goji Basil Cashews
These zesty roma superfood cashews combine the superfood nutrition benefits of goji berries and raw cashews with delicious spices reminiscent of classic Italian tomato basil. Goji berries are one of the most abundant sources of antioxidants, and they're also a good source of protein, vitamin A and vitamin C. Gojis provide diverse nutrition – with 20 vitamins and minerals including zinc, iron, phosphorus and riboflavin (B2) and beta-carotene. Raw cashews contain many beneficial fats, and they're also a good source of plant-based protein (5 grams per ounce) and minerals including iron, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc, copper and manganese.

Goldenberry Ginger Almonds
These sweet & tangy almonds are a delicious snack that pairs raw organic almonds with nutrient-dense goldenberries to create a handful of goodness that will keep you craving more.

Goldenberries contain carotene and bioflavonoids (vitamin P), and they're an excellent source of vitamin A. For a fruit, they possess a high content of protein, and they are also a good source of dietary fiber. Raw almonds are rich in healthy fats, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium. The nuts are naturally low in sugar, and are also a good source of protein and fiber. This mix also gets a boost from chia seeds, which provide healthy fats, protein, minerals and antioxidants.
