2015 Fall Food Finds

I received products to review. No other compensation was given. All thoughts are my own.

Want to know what is fresh and exciting for food this fall season? Check out some of my favorite new products that are available now!

Looking for a healthy, gluten free snack that is packed with protein and fiber? The Gluten Free Bites are a favorite snack in our home, and they have three new flavors: PB and J, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Hazelnut. Not only are these delicious, but they are made with all-natural and organic ingredients, certified gluten-free, vegan, Kosher, Non-GMO Project Verified, and each variety of bites is also low in sodium, made with low glycemic natural sweeteners, and completely free of fillers, additives, wheat, soy, cholesterol, trans fat, casein and dairy.

I was a bit concerned about the Virginia peanuts that are a main ingredient, since many of these variety of peanuts contain a mold called aflotoxin. I asked Elliott Rader, co-founder of The GFB, about this concern of mine and he shared that they source their peanuts from Virginia simply because they found a great supplier of high quality peanuts there. In terms of Aflatoxin testing, their CofA's show that, while there is no specific line item for Alfatoxins, the peanuts are tested for mold and the results are always <10 .="" p="">
Need an energy boost but concerned about unhealthy energy drinks? Try the new Voke Tab, a portable, chewable, healthy energy tab. These are great for before/during a workout, mid day when you need an extra boost, or when you are on the go and don't have time to stop for coffee or an energy drink.

Made with organic guarana berry, organic acerola cherry, and green tea leaf caffeine. They are only 2 calories per tab and contain 100% daily vitamin C.

Another great energy boost is tea! I am loving the new Life Basics Organic Teas, which are 100% organic, 100% Bee friendly, non-GMO, and are based on traditional tea blends from around the world.
Not only are these super pure and great for you, they taste delicious! They have seven different flavors, all very uniquely refreshing. The big news for Life Basics Organics is that they just launched their crowdfunding campaign on September 21st and are getting in grocery stores nationally! This is super exciting because they are the real deal in reinventing the world's wisest health drinks, and I hope to see them in a store nearby very soon! You will love them!

What if you could have chocolate and espresso in one tasty bite? Il Morso is the world's first "real food" espresso edible that gives you the same kick from your morning espresso - in just one delicious chocolate bite.

Why is Il Morso so great? Il Morso is made with just 3-5 ingredients, including organic espresso beans, cocoa butter, and cane sugar. Each is 100% organic, fair, and farm traceable. It's made from simple whole foods, not harsh chemical extracts. With each bite, you can actually see the measured dose of caffeine you are taking in - giving you more control of your body and how you use caffeine for energy. I love this, because I am a nursing mother, and I do not want to take in too much caffeine, but a little boost is fantastic! Il Morso comes in 4 decadent flavors: Americano, Mocha, Coffee and Cream, and Matcha Green Tea. Each is delicious - I just know you will love these as much as I do!

There’s over 130 million people across the USA who have to deal with multiple food allergies on a daily basis. And when it comes to snacking, their options become quite limited. Freedom Foods, the world-class Australian based leader in allergen-free foods for over 20 years, is excited to introduce a variety of allergen-free new oat bars to their well-established cereal brand.

These are new to the US, and I think you will appreciate that their oat bars are free from gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, egg, soy and sesame. They are more nutritious than what’s on the market with higher dietary fiber, and lower sugar and sodium content. Possessing natural colors, flavors and whole grains, there are no GMO ingredients and every batch, made in an allergen-free facility, is tested every time. Super important for those who have to carefully watch what they eat.

NAIRN'S is a UK health-food institution that's about to blow up here in the US. They also make oat-based, gluten-free and glutton-free bars, biscuits, crackers and cookies. While my kids and I mostly stay away from grains, my husband loves an oaty treat once in awhile. I love that Nairns uses high quality oats grown in the Scottish Borders where the climate is perfect to grow their whole grain oats without insecticides and other ickies. Their ingredient lists are super short, because they keep things as simple and natural as possible.
My hubby gave them a thumbs up, and I give them a thumbs up for keeping their ingredients simple and pure.
I have been a fan of kombucha for years. I even began making my own for awhile. If you are new to Kombucha or do not have time to make your own, I highly recommend GTs Kombucha. They are grateful for being able to share kombucha for two decades and to celebrate and thank their supporters, they are introducing a new, limited-edition, raw, organic kombucha flavor called Sharing Gratitude in a beautiful screen printed bottle. With delicious, fresh-pressed, root-based vegetable juices turmeric, carrot and ginger, the flavor is a symbol of the company staying true to its roots. In addition, they are making a donation for every bottle sold.

I love this flavor - it combines the best of so many ingredients, and the taste is perfect - not too spicy, sweet or sour. Just perfect!

We are celebrating with them, and we are giving away several bottles of GTs Kombucha special edition, Sharing Gratitude, to (1) lucky reader!
