You know what is hard? Walking into a store without any knowledge of what true, healthy and natural food should look like and ending up purchasing something that is bad for you.
Over the years I have given many supermarket chaperone classes and taught people in my local community how to shop for healthy foods.
Because I know how stressful this process can be I wanted to share with you some of my favorite organic, gluten free, vegan, GMO free foods and supplements that can easily be purchased online for a fraction of the cost of what most health food stores charge. Make sure you scroll down slowly so you don’t miss anything.  This is valuable information so feel free to repost and share with your friends and family!

Bob’s Red Mill products labeled Gluten Free are batch tested in our quality controlled laboratory. We use an Elisa Gluten Assay test to determine if a product is gluten free.

Let’s Do Organic Coconut Flour
Let’s Do. Organic Coconut Flour is made from certified organic fresh coconuts.  After separating the rich, white coconut meat from its shell, we use pressurized steam to remove most of its fat.  We thoroughly dry the defatted coconut before milling it to a fine cream colored flour.  Although its texture is very similar to wheat flour, Let’s Do. Organic Coconut Flour is completely gluten free, high in fiber and more than 20% protein.  Organic Coconut Flour is wonderful in baked goods, and delicious in your favorite smoothies (with the benefit of adding healthful protein and fiber).
Let’s Do. Organic Coconut Flour may replace wheat flour completely in many recipes with great results (see our Brownies recipe below for a perfect example).  In other recipes you may only want to replace up to 25% percent of the wheat or other grain flour with coconut flour.  When you replace other flour in recipes, be sure to increase your liquid by the same measure.  For example: if your recipe calls for 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of water, you could use ½ cup coconut flour plus 1½ cups any other flour, and then you must add an additional ½ cup water to total 1½ cups liquid.  Try our recipes and experiment with your own.  We invite you to send us your favorite recipes so that we can share them with others.

Organic Oils & Butters

Grassfed Organic Cultured Ghee
Certified casein-free, lactose-free and gluten-free.  This is world’s first Grass-fed and Certified Organic Cultured Ghee! Ghee is one of the most sacred and healing foods described by the ancient Ayurvedic texts. It is made by a simple process of gently simmering cultured butter to remove potential allergens such as casein and lactose. What remains is the pure delicious butter oil, described as conferring good health and longevity.
One of the traditional processes of making ghee involves culturing the cream before churning it into butter and then clarifying it into ghee. Pure Indian Foods Grass-fed Organic Cultured Ghee is made by following this age-old and time-honored practice. The result is a delightfully aromatic ghee with a slight tangy flavor characteristic of cultured foods. And as always, Pure Indian Foods ghee is made from milk obtained only during the spring and fall when the cows are on the pasture eating rapidly growing fresh, green grass.

Why Cultured Ghee?
Milk contains lactose, a natural sugar which gives it that delicate sweet taste. In order for the body to breakdown lactose, an enzyme called lactase must be present. Many people lack this valuable enzyme in their digestive system causing a common digestive problem known as lactose intolerance. In order to metabolize lactose, lactase must always be present. During the culturing of milk or cream, lactose is converted into lactic acid. This makes for a much more digestible product for many people. Remember, generally ghee does not cause a problem with lactose intolerance. This is because during the ghee making process, the lactose is removed even if the butter used to make the ghee was not made from fermented cream.

Grassfed Organic Ghee
Ghee is prepared by melting and simmering butter until all the water evaporates and the milk solids settle at the bottom. The remaining butter oil is very stable, giving it a high smoke point which makes it an excellent choice to use for frying and sautéing and it can be stored without refrigeration for up to a year. Organic Ghee is rich in nutrients, including healthy fat soluble vitamins which aid in the absorption of nutrients in the foods. Ghee contains naturally occurring CLA, Vitamins A, D & K.
Per Ayurveda, cow ghee is one of the most sacred foods. During the clarification process, milk solids are removed, leaving the healthy butter fats behind. Small, trace amounts of casein and lactose can possibly remain in the ghee, but unless a person is extremely sensitive, consuming ghee will be fine, even if dairy is not. Ghee does not contain milk solids, which gives it a very high smoke point (~485 °F).
Because it is very stable at high heat, it is considered one of the best oils for baking, sautéing and deep fat frying. When you sauté or fry with butter, milk solids can burn causing an unpleasant odor, appearance and taste. Also, there is no hissing, popping or splattering when you use ghee. It also has a sweet aroma and actually becomes richer in flavor as well. Ghee does not contain harmful trans-fats which can cause heart disease and many other serious health problems. Well-prepared ghee is very shelf-stable because it has low moisture content. Keep in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 months. In the refrigerator, it can last up to a year.
