Nutiva focuses on providing high-quality, healthy, and sustainable products. You can find out more about their missions and values on their website, but this particular section jumped out at me:
We know change is hard but we want to make it easy. We went out looking for the kind of foods that packed a powerful amount of nutrition into every bite, so that you could make small changes to big effect.
That’s the kind of thing I like to hear!
The Nutiva Superfood Sampler Kit included (all organic):
- Black chia seeds.
- Coconut oil.
- Red palm oil.
- Raw shelled hempseed.
- Lightly sweetened coconut treat.
- Recipe booklet.
- Hemp protein powder.
Review of the Nutiva Superfood Sampler Pack
The diversity in this sampler pack is impressive. You don’t often see or hear much about shortening or palm oil as “health foods,” which is usually because they aren’t well-sourced or of the highest quality. I was excited to see these products being reclaimed with Nutiva! We used the shortening to make bread and it was one of the nicest loaves of bread we’ve made in a long time.
Hemp, coconut, and chia are classic superfoods which can be used in so many ways. You could easily eat each one of these foods every day: you could use the coconut in place of other oils in cooking, as a beauty product, or in baking; make chia pudding, mix it into jam, or add it to smoothies; and eat hemp by the spoonful, sprinkle it in oatmeal or yogurt, or incorporate it into pancake mix—to name just a few ideas to get you started!
I made a smoothie using the hemp protein powder and it was tasty, with just a hint of hemp flavor as an undertone to the main banana flavors. Hemp is such an awesome source of vegan protein.
The Nutiva Superfood Sampler Pack is a nice way to get introduced to a variety of different superfoods, and experiment to see what you like best (and try them in all kinds of different dishes). It would also make a really nice gift for the foodie or health nut in your life!
