Raw Humus
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

This humus is completely raw which triples the health benefit of eating Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans). Our recipe is a good source of cholesterol-lowering soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Chickpeas will stabilize blood sugar levels after a meal, making these beans a perfect choice for people with diabetes, hypoglycemia, or insulin resistance.

Garbanzo beans (chickpeas) provide an excellent source of molybdenum. They are a
very good source of folic acid, fiber, and manganese. They are also a good source of
protein, as well as minerals such as iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium. As a good
source of fiber, garbanzo beans can help lower cholesterol and improve blood sugar
levels.

Raw Walnut Butter
(no ratings)

Walnuts are one of the most nutrient-dense food sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). They are the only nut that contain a significant amount of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, 2.6 grams per ounce, almost 9 times more than the next closest nut! Walnuts are getting great attention for boosting metabolism so more calories can be burned. Omega-3s help reduce the risk for heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and clinical depression.
