Tiger Nuts

Well here’s a shocker, Tiger Nuts are actually NOT nuts, they are a tuber that grows below the ground’s surface. They have all of the nutrients and energy benefits of nuts and then some, but without the stuff that can adversely affect allergies.


They are packed with fiber, vitamins and nutrients, and deliver a serious dose of energy. And because they have so much fiber, they make you feel full, which of course helps curb your appetite.

Tiger Nuts are probably the “Healthiest ‘single source’ snack food on the market“, and they have been that way for over 4000 years. Tiger nuts grow only in certain parts of the globe where the climate and soil are perfect, and these Tiger Nuts come from the very best soil and growing conditions anywhere in the world and that’s Valencia on the eastern coast of Spain; one of my favorite places. The other big area where Tiger Nuts are grown and consumed is Nigeria.

Screen Shot 2014-06-21 at 6.24.51 PM

Tiger Nuts are:

  • Gluten Free
  • Organic
  • Dairy Free
  • Allergens Free
  • Cholesterol Free
  • High in Fiber – about 33%
  • Have zero trans fat
  • Low in Calories & Fats, High in Nutrition and taste great too!

I recently tried the new Supreme Peeled Tiger Nuts.These organic tiger nuts are already peeled. The outer skin is removed, making them ready to eat out of the bag.


Tiger Nuts are about the size of a pea, hence their name. They have a woody and nutty taste similar to coconuts, that gets sweeter as you chew. I’m actually eating some right now, as I write this post. I just threw a few in my mouth to chew on. That’s what you do with these, you chew. It’s somewhat unexpected the first time you eat them; I was expecting something harder like a nut. I have to admit I was not a fan at first, but the second and time I tried tiger nuts, they grew on me and I really liked them.

Tiger Nuts have the all-natural benefits that come from a food that has grown without pesticides, have a naturally sweet taste that makes them ideal for diabetics, people who are lactose intolerant, and those who have digestive problems. And since they are a Tuber, it makes them Vegan, but taste like a nut.They are also perfect for people who want a healthy food that will seriously do them good while acting as an appetite suppressant at the same time.

Can you purchase Tiger Nuts online and can find Tiger Nuts at retail locations across the country. Check out the store locator to find a location nearest you.

Bread SRSLEY gluten free, dairy free, soy free Sourdough Bread


Bread SRSLY is San Francisco’s first gluten-free sourdough bread company. The company began late in 2011 after it’s founder, Sadie, had a furious bout of gluten-free sourdough experiments in her home kitchen in Cole Valley. But the story starts well before that. After a friend went gluten free in 2009, Sadie began baking and experimenting with new ingredients – sorghum flour, sweet rice, buckwheat. Many of her attempts ended up in the compost, but when one came out well, she would ask her friend to  try it. During this time she developed a good understanding of gluten free ingredients, and a few months later she learned that she was pretty seriously gluten-intolerant herself!


That’s when she redoubled her efforts in the kitchen, focusing on making the perfect loaf of gluten-free bread. In 2011 she began selling bread to friends and not long after word spread catapulting Bread SRSLY into a full-time business. 

Bread SRSLY  was created after months of research, applying traditional sourdough techniques to gluten-free recipes and learning that good bread takes its time to rise. Each Bread SRSLY loaf rises for more than 12 hours, making it SERIOUSLY good for you. In addition to being gluten-free, all Bread SRSLY products are free of dairy, egg, soy, nut, potato, tapioca, and garbanzo.

Bread SRSLY is committed to making nourishing bread. Each loaf is leavened with wild yeast, cultivated from the air and grain. Unlike commercial yeast, wild yeast helps to break down the grains, making them easier to digest, and adding a pleasant tang that we call sourdough.


Bread SRSLY sourdough loaves is available in a few different flavors – classic, kale and seeded, as well as in rolls. The bread is great for sandwiches! There was one small hole in my bread (see photo above) but so much smaller than I usually find in other leading brand name sandwich breads. 

 You can purchase loaves and mixes online and shipping is always only $5.

Celiac Awareness Month // Milton’s NEW Gluten Free Baked Chips Giveaway

Two years ago, Milton’s Baking Company introduced it’s first line of gluten free crackers, which you might remember from a review/giveaway I did last May. Well this year, Milton’s is launching two new lines of gluten free products: Baked Chips and Cookies!! And I am so excited to share both you today! 


The new line of Milton’s Gluten Free Baked Chips is available in 6 flavors:

  • Nacho Cheddar
  • Red Chili Salsa
  • Santa Maria BBQ
  • Sea Salt
  • Himalayan Salt 
  • Green Chili Salsa 

The chips are made from a blend of corn, brown rice, chickpeas, lentils and seasonings and are vegetarian friendly! Each flavor was distinct and had varying levels of spiciness or saltiness.  

The Red Chili Salsa and Green Chili Salsa Baked Chips were spicy! The green chili salsa were less spicy and full of flavor.

The Nacho Cheddar chips contain milk, so I told Jeremy those were his to eat! I did try both and the BBQ flavor was not too overpowering and the Nacho Cheddar reminded me of similar chips I’ve tried of the same flavor, but much healthier. 

My favorites were the Himalayan Sea Salt Baked Chips and the Sea Salt Baked Chips. Both might be considered “plain” as compared to the other flavors but I think these are the best and can easily be paired with salsa, hummus or your favorite dip. 

Milton’s Baked Chips are also soy free, peanut and tree nut free, egg free, non-GMO, and kosher.  There is zero trans fats or cholesterol.


The new Gluten Free Cookies are soft, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth morsels of baked goodness. This decadant new cookie is available in three flavors:

  • Chocolate Chip
  • Double Chocolate Chip
  • Snickerdoodle
