"Food can either be the slowest form of poison or the best medicine."
By now you know we are insanely passionate about wellness and especially innovative products that make having a vibrant mind and body easier to achieve. Any product we select to serve at Nourish (and consume ourselves) is always the highest quality that we can get our hands on. When we were researching our protein powder (and I did ALOT of research) we came across a brand called Ora. I fell in wellness love with their similar mission driven business, high quality, organic ingredients, sustainable packaging and chef created flavors.
This protein powder is plant based and has 2 servings of organic greens in every scoop along with prebiotics and digestive enzymes. Not only are you getting a clean organic, plant based protein made without dairy, gluten, soy, GMOs, peanuts, tree nuts, added sugars, filler ingredients, artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners or preservatives but you're also consuming some major superfoods. We were so excited about Ora's protein we decided to carry their other products in our Market. See below what we currently have, and I'm sure we'll be adding to the mix! We'd love your feedback.
Kimber came up with some delicious recipes using the products that we wanted to share with you. (even if you don't have Ora I'm sure you can make substitutions using what you have!)
