We picked up the Thug Kitchen cook book a few weeks back and have been burning through its recipes (We highly recommend it!). One of our favorites was this creamy slaw recipe that we altered just slightly to fit our peanut-free policy. As with any recipe that requires peanut butter, we've found that our Sunflower Seed Butter is a great replacement both in terms of taste and consistency.Read More
In May, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) warned that contaminants in palm oil raise potential health concerns across the board. The EFSA panel found that the major cancer concern is over glycidyl fatty acid esters or GE, which form during food processing, or when Palm oil is refined at temperatures over 393 Fahrenheit. Reuters News Service reports that Italy’s largest supermarket, Coop, as well as several other retailers, have removed products containing Palm oil from their shelves due to the cancer scare.Read More

I was paging through the Nom Nom Paleo cookbook the other day, looking for a recipe to wow a few friends I had coming over for dinner. They often give me grief for my strict diet, so I had to choose a real crowd pleaser. The solution: Eggplant Ricotta Stacks. The twist: Use Futter's Macadamia Butter instead of grinding my own Macadamia nuts.
This recipe, complete with a balsamic reduction, and savory macadamia ricotta (There's no dairy involved!) belongs on my Paleo dish Mount Rushmore. The secret here, though, is that using our macadamia nut butter is actually LESS EXPENSIVE than grinding your own nuts. It mixes perfectly with the lemon, oil, and basil creating this beautiful, creamy creation. Just describing it makes me want more now!
We’re pleased to partner with our friends over at Simple Mills for this tasty, gluten-free treat. These cookies are perfect for any cold-weather party you have coming up, and you don’t have to feel guilty about eating a few on the way there.Read More
