Navita's Naturals Review and Giveaway

8:45 AM

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

Well, it is that time of year again...sitting around the living room, visiting with friends and enjoying snacks. How about a healthy snack for once? We all love our snacks but having a snack on hand that is good for us is even better!!!

Navita's Naturals is a company that offers organic superfoods that increase energy and enhance our health. Their selection is vast, with a very high attention to detail. Every product is made in an environment that focuses on food safety and quality. The food philosophy of Navita's Naturals is this:

"Nutrient rich whole foods are best produced using organic agricultural methods with minimal processing. Focusing on both food safety and nutrition, we handle our premium superfoods with care. This includes third party testing for all our products. Our facility is Organic, Kosher and GMP/HACCP Certified. In addition, we utilize methods such as freeze-drying and low temperature processing to ensure maximum nutrition and safety."

"Navita" means energy in Latin...and that is the benefit of enjoying Navita's Naturals products. To me, eating something that is organically grown, harvested and produced is very important. The less tampering with the food, the better.
"Our mission is to provide premium organic functional foods that increase energy and enhance health. Part of this effort is to continually search for the world’s most beneficial natural foods. Navitas Naturals is a certified organic, green business headquartered in Marin County, California.

We specialize in organic and wild-crafted functional foods, and strive to lead the industry in this expanding market. Health conscious consumers choose our nutrient-rich products because they are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Our premium quality “superfoods” are always free of additives and trans fats; the absence of these elements speaking to the purity and effectiveness of the products."

I have recently started a diet and I have really been trying to eat better...partly for me, partly for my family. Part of being a parent is leading by example and that is what I am striving to achieve in this diet. So, when my package from Navita's Naturals came in the other day, I was excited. I knew that whatever that package held would be good food for my family to enjoy. I was right!!!
I was sent a bag of Cacao Sweet Nibs, a bag of Goldenberries, a recipe book using the foods that Navita's Naturals sells and a Cacao Power lip balm.

The first thing that I tasted was the Cacao Sweet Nibs. I have to say, that these were not my favorite. They really weren't that sweet to me and the texture wasn't what I was expecting. HOWEVER, my husband, who is a dark chocolate fan, LOVED them! He is not a healthy eater by any stretch of the imagination so you can just imagine how excited that made me!! FINALLY...a healthy food that is good for him that he likes! YAY! Cacao Sweet Nibs are rolled in raw cacao liquor, then lightly mixed with 100% organic sugar cane juice. They are crunchy and sweet...kind of like eating a chocolate covered coffee bean. Cacao Sweet Nibs can be used in smoothies, desserts, chocolate drinks, trail mixes and sauces. What a great variety of uses!!! I may like them better if I add them to one of those options... :)

After that, I moved on to the Goldenberries. This is a fruit that is indigenous to South America and grows on a small hearty bush. Each fruit looks like a tiny Chinese lantern...very yellow in color and a thin papery husk. Goldenberries are known as a sweet 'n' sour superfruit. Navita's Naturals dries these tasty little morsels to a level of approximately 15% to retain their soft and chewy texture. Tasting them was definitely an adventure for my taste buds!! They were sweet at first, then sour. The word I would use to describe them is "bold". Once again, these were a big hit with my husband. He has claimed them for his own.
Tonight I tried the Cacao Power lip balm and LOVED it. It had a slight chocolaty flavor to it and was very smooth and silky feeling once it was on my lips. It definitely had a very nice feel to it. Lip balms are one of my favorite things...especially with the cold weather knocking at our door!
The recipe book contains many different recipes that you can prepare using the products from Navita's Naturals. There are recipes for everything from hot chocolate to muffins, wraps to shakes and burgers to chutney! WOW! Truly a nice variety flavors to suit any palate!
Navita' Naturals also offers another product besides food! They carry a fantastic product called the "Blue Bottle" which is a stainless steel, reusable water bottle...great gift idea for Christmas!!!

I am so thankful that there are companies like Navita's Naturals out there to assist us in our healthy snacking efforts.

So, in my opinion, Navita's Naturals is a great company that really has our health at heart. They strive to offer the cleanest, most organic and most healthy of snacks to all of us and they truly seem to enjoy doing so!
