What’s ringing our bell this week? Try out these new favorites that are at current high-obsession-level at GGA HQ;
Nut Butters from Rawtella
Delicious, raw, organic, and better than Nutella any day and twice on Wednesday – these nut butters are nutritionally jam packed with protein and antioxidants and upgrade a piece of toast to fine pastry ilk. We like this brand better than most of the others because the butter doesn’t separate or get hard – it’s forever creamy and spreads beautifully. Try their cashew butter, mint chocolate, silky and crunchy versions, and coconut butters too. One better than the next.
This has become the GGA Mom’s best friend of the summer. When you are on the go and you don’t want to give your kid high-sugar Luna or protein bars, Rawxies gluten-free cookies are like a dreamy, free babysitter who can get your kids to eat their greens. They are packaged like cookies, and are all adorably heart shaped – but their ingredient list reads like a healthy homemade granola. Rawxies are different from most traditional raw food bars in a few different ways. For starters, Rawxies are an oat-based product, as opposed to a date or nut based bar, which tends to sustain satiation for an extended period of time. Compared to the alternative nut/date based bars, Rawxies also contain 60% less sugar per caloric gram. On average, one package of Rawxies has 5-6 grams of sugar, whereas some alternatives have up to 20 grams. Plus, they are damn delicious.
Newly obsessed with everything this company (owned by a tattooed motorcycle racer) makes, namely their healthy caramel pop corn – cracker jacks for health nuts! What do you get when you remove junk and replace it with organic coconut oil, coconut sugar, and coconut nectar? Magic! This is the best tasting and healthiest caramel corn in the Universe. Also not to be missed: their egg nog granola.
Boxes From Healthy Surprise
We’ve discovered so many products we’d have otherwise never known about, even being the health food store junkies we are, through this brilliant new service which ships vegan, organic, and gluten-free goodies to your door Monthly. These aren’t paltry boxes with a couple of mealy tasting granola bars in an envelope.. these are massive boxes stuffed to the gills with incredible new snacks to try out. We are still working our way through this months box with glee at every new taste surprise! This is an absolutely incredible gift – over flowers – particularly for someone very busy or on the go who will have snacks all month long thanks to your generosity.
St Germain Nail Polish in Purple Silver
St Germain products are free of harmful chemicals, but more importantly, we just are in a summer love affair with this color – which reads as a metallic silvery lilac once on the nail.
Seltzer Goods Cards
In a world where your BFF texts you when you give birth instead of sending flowers or cards, it’s nice to go old school and send the people you love some snail mail. We love Seltzer Goods cards because they are snarky as hell, eco-friendly, and always manage to get a smile out of the most jaded biatch.
Theia’s Fall Gown Collection
What we like best about Theia’s fall collection is the versatility and wearability of these gowns, which will easily stay in your closet for 20 years and not look dated. This dress (below) is a sexy favorite for all our fall gala commitments, and is entirely cruelty-free – made with no silk or leather or wool.
Pacifica Perfume in Hawaiian Ruby Guava
Hawaiian Ruby Guava smells like fresh cut tropical fruit on your skin. We can’t get enough of this summer scent and particularly love the thin roll-on bottle which perfectly stashes in a clutch for midnight touch ups! Pacifica Spray Perfume is made with natural, pure grain alcohol (corn-sourced and gluten-free) and Pacifica’s signature perfume blends with essential and natural oils. They are all vegan and not tested on animals.
Pure Food and Wine Swan Greens Juice
The swan greens juice is a perfect tasting blend of refreshing healthiness – with cucumber, spinach, dandelion, grapefruit, tarragon, spearmint, and yuzu in one delectable bottle. We like to sip ours by the moonlight in the Pure Food and Wine garden with friends, but you can pop into their One Lucky Duck outposts all over NYC, or just make it at home yourself. There is no better summer green juice than this one.
