Some of my favorite products…
Organic Traditions Dark Chocolate Hazelnuts with Chili (GF)
These make a delicious snack.. or you can grind them to use for baking, desserts, as a topping on berries or in any other recipe.
Sea Buckthorn Liquid Supplement (GF)
Loaded with the essential omega fatty acids 3, 6 and 9. It is also a rich source of elusive omega 7 fatty acids, a rare and vital component for cellular support and healthy hair, skin and nails. Refreshing taste reminds me of a tart passionfruit juice.
I love their Apple Sage Sausages and Celebration Roast. So good! These will definitely impress your friends and family too. Serve the Frankfurter’s to your non-veg friends - they won’t even know the difference.
Simply Protein Chips - Chili Flavor (GF)
A spicy and crunchy snack with 15 grams of pea protein!
Whole Nectar Soy Protein (GF)
Organic, non-GMO soy beans and gluten free! Great flavor and isn’t chalky.
Manitoba Harvest Organic Hemp Seeds (GF)
Add to your favorite smoothies or cereal. Great source of EFAs, protein and omegas 3 and 6.

VF Tip: Some suggestions for making your smoothie delicious and nutritious.
mmm.. Cool and Creamy
Add a handful of cashews! They’ll give your shake a protein boost and make it super creamy too. If you don’t have a high speed blender, make sure you soak them for an hour or two before blending.
Frozen bananas will turn your dull smoothie into a ultra creamy milkshake. They’re also a good source of vitamin B6, potassium and fibre.
Try adding half an avocado. They’re amazing for your skin, heart and have anti-inflammatory properties.. and they’re delicious too!
Sweeten it Up!
Pop in a few dates to sweeten your smoothie. They’re great for an energy boost right before a workout. If your blender can’t handle them, just soak them for an hour or so. Agave or maple syrup are great sweeteners too!
Add a small handful of pumpkin seeds + handful of spinach + OJ to your smoothie for an iron boost. The vitamin C helps your body absorb the iron more easily from the nuts and spinach.
Add the ice last - you don’t want to end up with juice instead of a smoothie :)
