Goodnight, Pumpkin.

Pumpkin SeedsWhy wait until Thanksgiving to get your dose of Tryptophan? The fall holidays are generally that time of year where we eat too much, laugh too much… and sleep too much! But why? It’s a well known fact that the amino acid Tryptophan in turkey is a natural sleep enhancer, but do you know what plant-based festive food can also help you have a delightful snooze? How about delicious Pumpkin Seeds!

This surprising super seed contains a significant amount of the amino acid Tryptophan, which is converted by the body into serotonin, which converts into melatonin – AKA The Sleep Hormone. Pumpkin Seeds are one of the richest natural sources of Tryptophan, and whether enjoyed deliciously raw, roasted or in a dreamy pie, will greatly contribute to a healthier, deeper sleep!

You don’t need to wait for the fall to enjoy these little treasures; eating pumpkin seeds a few hours before bed, along with a carbohydrate like a small piece of fruit, “may be especially beneficial for providing your body the Tryptophan needed for your melatonin and serotonin production to help promote a restful night’s sleep3!” Loaded with potassium, heart healthy fiber, iron, B vitamins, magnesium and phosphorus, our Pumpkin Seeds are surely one of the most nutrient-packed seeds out there!

Treasure Your Memories – With Hemp

Hemp SeedsHave you ever felt like your memory is escaping you? Do you have days where you would lose your head if it wasn’t attached to your body? Don’t worry, we all have our moments. Forgetfulness and memory loss are an aggravating reality to face, but there is a solution – Hemp Seeds!

With the power of zinc and magnesium, you’ll be on your way to memory lane. Hemp Seeds are rich in magnesium, and “increasing brain magnesium improves learning abilities, working memory, and short- and-long-term memory4” according to neuroscientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Hemp seeds are also high in zinc, a mineral which has a great effect on memory and learning. In a separate study, zinc was found to play a “crucial role in regulating how neurons communicate with one another5,” affecting how memories are formed and how we learn.

What The Flax?

Flax SeedIt’s no secret that Flax Seeds are chock full of fiber, which promotes healthy immune function and normal heart health. But fiber goes beyond that – in fact, it goes skin deep. “Fiber has the potential to grab onto yeast and fungus and move them through your body, preventing them from being excreted through the skin, where they could eventually trigger acne, rashes and other skin problems6.” That’s not all Flax Seeds can do for you! Along with clear, radiant skin and a healthy immune system, these amazing seeds also offer effective weight management! The insoluble fiber in Flax Seeds “increases the feeling of fullness7,” and promotes healthy digestion by speeding up the passage of food and waste.

Unlock the Secrets of Powerful Herbal Teas

Sunfood President Avoids Medical Treatment with One Superherb

Sunfood Chanca Piedra TeaFor those of you that have ever had a kidney stone, we don’t have to tell you that it’s not fun. Our president here at Sunfood came down with one and decided to try a natural approach with our Chanca Piedra tea. Check out his story below to see if this Amazonian superherb really works…
 
“This was my third kidney stone and it was about 2mm to 3mm in size. I was experiencing some bleeding and the stone was identified in a kidney x-ray. This was before it started moving down the small tube to the bladder—this is what hurts.

 “Instead of going straight for the ultrasound treatment as I’d done in the past, I started drinking Chanca Piedra tea every day for about a month and a half. During that time, I did experience some discomfort as the stone moved its way down the tube. My second and third x-rays did not show the stone at all. I could feel that the stone was moving slowly down the tube as the discomfort and sometimes the pain changed position as the stone moved through. 

 
“After about a month and a half, the stone did show up on the fourth x-ray—this time it was in my bladder, as I suspected. According to the doctor, it was down to about 1mm in size. I passed it shortly thereafter. I believe the tea was responsible for slowly shrinking the size of my stone and allowing me to pass it without the expense of an ultrasound treatment. It was not fast acting, as is the case with most natural treatments, but it did work. It’s been several months and I’ve had no problems since. For someone that gets stones regularly, I would recommend chanca piedra, as it can help the stones pass and prevent the calcification buildup that causes them in the first place.” 
 
 
The Secret of Chanca Piedra
Sunfood Chanca Piedra TeaChanca Piedra is an Amazonian superherb whose name translates to “stone breaker” in Quechua and Spanish, due to its traditional use breaking up calcium deposits in the body. Scientific studies have confirmed that it “has been shown to interfere with many stages of stone formation,” leading researchers to suggest that it has “a preventive effect in stone formation or elimination.”1
 
The benefits of Chanca Piedra are not limited to the kidneys; studies have also found that it has “hepatoprotective activity,” meaning that is has the ability to prevent damage to the liver.2

Chanca Piedra has an earthy, herbal taste. You can steep 1 tsp in 8oz hot water for at least 10 minutes, or try this Chanca-Berry Vanilla Tea!
 Chanca-Berry Vanilla Tea

Chanca Piedra, like all of our herbal teas, is wild-crafted, certified non-GMO, and the highest quality available in South America. When you purchase our teas, you are supporting indigenous peoples and helping to protect untouched land from cattle farming and industrial agriculture.
 


 
Traditional Wisdom Revealed…
Check out our four other herbal teas and how they’re helping people. What can they do for you?
 
A Tree Like No Other
Sunfood Pau d'Arco TeaLong ago, indigenous people in the Amazon noticed a peculiar tree that was highly resistant to decay. Even dead trees in the moist jungle did not seem to have any fungal growth. The people began using the inner bark of this majestic, flowering Amazonian tree to treat fungal conditions. That tree is Pau d’Arco.
 
“Pau d’Arco is helping to clear up a persistent foot fungus, as well as getting my itchy scalp under control. Also it’s easing my allergy symptoms.” Jerry
 
Research has confirmed what the indigenous people have known for centuries. Studies have shown that Pau d’Arco has “modest antifungal and antibacterial activity”.3 One study compared 14 South American plants in terms of antifungal potential and concluded that Pau d’Arco was in the top three for the “highest activity” against 11 strains of fungi and yeast.4 
 
Pau d’Arco has a mildly sweet, earthy flavor. We recommend steeping 1 teaspoon pau d’arco in 8oz hot water for at least 10 minutes, or try this Superherb “Chi” Tonic!
 
Do You Need Pain Relief?
Sunfood Chuchuhuasi TeaThe bark of a giant Amazonian canopy tree known as Chuchuhuasi (pronounced CHOO-CHOO-WA-SEE) may be just what you need. Indigenous people have used it for centuries and researchers have confirmed the “efficacy of this herb, such as anti-inflammatory analgesia [pain relief]” as well as “antirheumatic [relieving rheumatism].”6
 
“I used to take pharmaceutical muscle relaxers to alleviate tension and stressed muscles, but the medication often led to other discomforts. I started using chuchuhausi for sore muscles and inflammation and it ended up doing so much more for me! It reduced my lower back pain dramatically, reduced edema, and increased libido too!”Jeramy
 
Chuchuhuasi is earthy and robust flavored. We recommend steeping ¾ tsp in 8oz hot water for at least 10 minutes. Also it makes an excellent base for cacao drinks!
 
From Digestion to Immunity…
Sunfood Cat's Claw TeaA single Amazonian herb known as Cat’s Claw has been known to address an impressive range of heath issues. Deriving its name from the claw-like thorns that grow along the vine, it has been traditionally used to treat “arthritis, stomach ulcers, [and] inflammation.”7 If that weren’t enough, Cat’s Claw “may stimulate the immune system, help relax the smooth muscles (such as the intestines), dilate blood vessels (helping lower blood pressure), and act as a diuretic (helping the body get rid of excess water).”7
 
“When I discovered I had a gluten sensitivity, I knew that giving up my most beloved foods wasn’t going to be easy. Neither was living with an inflamed stomach. I began drinking Cat’s Claw in the morning before I ingested any foods. Since then, I have not had to deal with inflammation in the stomach, and my overall digestive health has improved.”Hannah
 
Cat’s Claw is astringent and slightly bitter. Steep 1/2 teaspoon cat’s claw in 8oz hot water for at least 10 minutes or try this Superherb “Chi” Tonic!

Note: Before using this tea, please consult your doctor: before or following any organ/bone marrow transplant/skin graft, if you are pregnant, nursing, or trying to get pregnant.

Incan Power
Sunfood Hercampuri TeaA wild Andean herb known as Hercampuri has been traditionally used by the Incas for hundreds of years. Specifically, this powerful herb has been found to “relieve stomach pain” as well as to “detoxify blood, regulate circulation, and reduce obesity.”5
 
“The way this tea makes me feel is incredible, especially when I drink it on a daily basis. For this reason, I am compelled to consume it despite the strong bitterness, and I am growing more and more fond of its uniqueness. Although I practice a healthy diet most of the time, I am also a food enthusiast and I enjoy rich foods and alcohol. When I feel my energy levels dropping, I immediately resort to this tea. I can feel my liver saying “thank you!” as my energy increases back to normal.”Jay
 
Our wild-crafted, non-GMO Hercampuri has a potent, bitter flavor that will help you feel strong throughout the day. We recommend 1/16 – 1/8 tsp steeped in 8oz water. A little goes a long way!

What a delight! I don’t remember the last time my family has eaten raisins with seeds. After researching how the seedless ones are made, we had to say no to all things seedless, including raisins. Now we are finally able to reap all the benefits of a good old raisin – in its natural form.” – Kristya

3 Superfoods To Get Your Body Swimsuit Ready!

Summer weather is here and yes, it’s time to break out your bathing suit and head to the beach or the pool. Are you ready?
 
If not, we’ve got some superfoods that can help you shed those winter pounds. Of course, eating the healthiest diet you can is always helpful—in a nutshell, enjoying more summer fruits, veggies, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds, and minimizing processed foods, trans fats and white sugar. Oh, and don’t forget to exercise regularly. Easy, right?
 
Don’t worry; these top 3 superfoods can help get you going so you’ll be ready to confidently rock that swimsuit in no time!
 
1. Yacon Syrup
“I have used yacon syrup for several weeks and two of my scales show I lost almost 8 lbs. My husband says he sees a difference around my neck, hopefully when I start exercising I will see a difference around my waist.” – Brenda

No other sweetener on the planet can do this.
Yacon SyrupBelieve it or not… It’s true! An all natural sweetener derived from an Andean root vegetable, Yacon Syrup has been scientifically proven to produce “a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index” in obese premenopausal women with insulin resistance.1 It was also found that fasting glucose levels were not affected by the syrup treatment.1

How can this be?
Yacon is high in dietary fibers known as fructooligosaccharides (FOS), which the body recognizes differently than glucose. Therefore it has little, if any, effect on blood sugar levels. It also contains inulin which functions as a prebiotic to help control flora in the intestine, meaning that it may improve normal gastrointestinal health. It is possible that the prebiotic power of yacon is the reason behind the women in the study successfully losing weight.
 
Our Yacon Syrup is completely pure, unlike many other yacon products which have popped up to capitalize on the media’s recent highlight of this product as a weight loss aid. You can rest assured that ours is organic, completely pure, and free of any additives or fillers.
 
Yacon SyrupHere’s what other Sunfoodies have to say about Yacon Syrup:
“I love the taste and take a spoonful a few times a day. So far I feel it is helping with digestion and sugar cravings.” – Nicole

“I really love this! Sunfood makes a high quality brand of yacon syrup. I bought another brand at my local health food store and had to return it because it had such a bad taste so beware, not all brands are equal! I brew hibiscus tea in a mason jar and add 2 teaspoons of yacon syrup every morning. I then drink it all day long over ice which keeps my blood sugar levels even and diminishes my food cravings. I received my order my quickly and I’m thrilled! – Kathryn 

“This product has helped me become regulated for the first time in 72 years! What a pleasure to have a body that functions as it should. I find the Sunfood brand a bit thicker and sweeter making it much easier to take. Thank you.” – Sandra
 
Now you can lose weight and still enjoy a dessert or two!
While moderation is key for any sweet treat, Yacon Syrup is the essential sweetener for all of your dessert recipes! It has little to no effect on your blood sugar, and its power as a prebiotic can aid digestion and help you lose weight.

2. Coconut Oil

Sounds counter-intuitive, we know, but the answer is yes – depending on the type of fat you consume.
 
Dr. Bruce Fife, C.N., N.D., author of The Coconut Oil Miracle, found out the truth of how different fats affect the body for himself. After failed diet attempts, he simply replaced processed vegetable oils with Coconut Oil, as well as reducing his sweets and increasing his fiber intake. He did not monitor his calories at all.
 
A few months later he was shocked to realize that his pants were loose. He hadn’t expected anything to happen at all, but when he got on the scale, he discovered that he’d lost 20lbs.
 
Several years later, he eats foods cooked in fats and desserts which contain fat, but the fat he eats almost exclusively is Coconut Oil. The 20lbs never came back.
 
Dr. Fife writes in The Coconut Oil Miracle, “I found a way of eating that wasn’t like a weight-loss diet because it worked without my trying. It was great. I look better and feel better about myself.”2
 
Just what is it about coconut oil?
Coconut OilThe key is that Coconut Oil is an excellent source of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA), which are quickly broken down by the body and used as an energy source. On the other hand, long-chain fatty acids (LCFA), the most common type of dietary fat found abundantly in meat and vegetable oils, tend to get stored in the body as fat and result in extra pounds.
 
The science confirms what Dr. Fife experienced. One study showed that subjects consuming MCFA experienced “decreased body fat related to increased metabolic rate.”3 What other fat on the planet can increase metabolism and even help burn off fat stored in the body?
 
Because the body uses MCFA immediately for energy rather than storing it as body fat, human studies have shown that the simple act of replacing LCFA with MCFA “ would produce weight loss if energy [caloric] intake remained constant.”4
 
No crash diet necessary! Just replace other oils with Coconut Oil and see what happens. Unlike other coconut oils, ours is truly raw, unrefined, organic, and non-GMO—the best out there!

This coconut oil is superb! I have tried other coconut oils in the past and felt that they had a bad aftertaste. This coconut oil is delicious enough to eat alone! I use it to cook and bake with. I also blend it into smoothies and mix it into almond butter for a delicious snack. This coconut oil is by far the best coconut oil on the market!” – Sarah
 


 
3. Beauty Enzymes

Beauty EnzymesIf you’ve ever eaten too much and felt tired afterwards, that’s because your body has to get to work producing the enzymes your body needs to process that big meal. Digestion simply would not happen without enzymes. These complex proteins help convert food into nutrients that your body can use.
 
Sometimes your body could use a little help with this arduous task. Our Beauty Enzymes are the purest and most potent plant-based enzymes, making them the best way to get extra enzymes for digestion. It is essential to note that they are plant-based because animal-based enzymes that generally come from ox bile or pig pancreas work in a specific pH, while plant-based enzymes work within a broad range of pH, just like our stomachs do. Completely pure, Beauty Enzymes are undoubtedly one of the most potent and complete enzyme formulas out there.

The results people have been experiencing are amazing!
 
“I didn’t change a lot about my eating habits, I generally eat pretty clean. But when I discovered Beauty Enzymes I decided that I wanted to do a little experiment. For 14 days, I took 2 Enzymes 30 minutes before every meal, 3 times a day. By the end of those two weeks, I had lost an exciting 4lbs and felt my overall digestive process improve.”  - Hannah

“I can’t see myself ever going without Beauty Enzymes. Before, when I ate, my stomach would expand to look like I was pregnant even before my meal was finished, but now since I’ve been taking Beauty Enzymes, that problem is gone!” - Beth 

“I had given up on digestive enzymes, not ever benefitting from taking them. I couldn’t ignore the good reviews for this product all over the internet and reluctantly ordered them. I am close to ordering my 4th bottle! These are incredible and worth every penny!” - Dede
 
Let’s face it, sometimes we overeat and it’s not always the healthiest foods. The good news is that our Beauty Enzymes are the highest quality enzymes to help give your body a metabolic boost and facilitate digestion.
 
And just switching out your cooking oil with Coconut Oil, and your sweetener with Yacon Syrup can make a big difference!

Weight Loss

“My friend took me dress shopping and I did not know my stomach had shrunk until I tried on a red dress with a short jacket. All I had been doing was drinking Sun is Shining religiously every morning. I guess it was a combination of the probiotics and enzymes. I do believe it shrunk my stomach. I ordered more.” – Net

The Bottom Line

The Sunfood Difference

Sun is Shining is a dynamic whole-food formula that contains 100% raw, vegan, non-GMO, organic or wild-crafted superfoods, plus an amazing probiotic and enzyme complex. Unlike other green powders out there, it contains no additives, anti-caking agents, preservatives, fillers or grains—it’s just pure green superfood.

 

 

The Science Behind It

Here’s a snapshot of what the ingredients in Sun Is Shining can do for you…
 

  • The freshwater algae in Sun Is Shining has amazing detox potential. Chlorella has been known to help alleviate heavy metal toxicity: One study in particular proved that chlorella helps the body rid itself of cadmium, concluding that “when exposed to Cd (cadmium), chlorella is an appropriate source which counteracts heavy metal poisoning.”1 Another found that “continuous BP [chlorella (parachlorella beijerinckii)] intake accelerates the excretion of MeHg [methylmecury] and subsequently decreases tissue Hg [mercury] levels.”2
     
  • Spirulina has been known to help with radiation detox: One research study showed that children with radiation sickness “reduced urine radioactivity levels by 50% in only 20 days” with five grams of spirulina administered per day, confirming “the beneficial health effects of spirulina on children with radiation sickness.”3
     
  • The anti-oxidative power of wheatgrass was found to be an “effective and safe” treatment for ulcerative colitis.4 The Hippocrates Health Institute also found that wheat grass is “a      powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector” that can “stimulate metabolism…restore alkalinity…neutralize toxins… [and] slow down the aging process.”5
     
  • The sea vegetable known as kelp was found to cause a “positive reaction in hepatic [liver] cells” in subjects with carcinogen exposure.6 Another study also confirmed that a chemical characteristic of brown seaweed [kelp] has “protecting effects on the liver” as well as “antioxidant, anti-inflammatory…[and] anti-obese” activities.7
     
  • Sun Is Shining is 40% protein, boasting an incredible array of nutrients. A two-teaspoon serving will give you 123% of your daily RDA of vitamin A, 158% vitamin B12, 19% vitamin B2, 33% iron, 9% calcium—the list goes on! Click here for a full nutritional panel and ingredient list to get the raw facts!
     
  • Last but not least, Sun Is Shining has probiotics (friendly flora) which can enhance digestion and strengthen the immune system, along with enzymes which can help to make all these nutrients more bio-available.
 
 

 

Easiest Way to Get Your Greens

Sun Is Shining is designed to be taken on a daily basis, and especially during cleansing or detoxification. Start with one or two teaspoons per day and increase as you desire. Add to water, coconut water, fruit juice, a smoothie, or your favorite beverage. Check out this delicious recipe for a smoothie that will send you soaring through your day! Sunfood Super Smoothie

“This is one of the best products I have ever tried. I have so much energy after I make my morning shake that it lasts all day!!!! No 2:00 pm blues!!” – Shelly

Summertime Snacks For The Whole Family!

 Weight Gain. Toxicity.  Diabetes. Hyperactivity. Chemical Overload. Hungry Yet?

What if we told you that your favorite summertime snack foods are filled with ingredients that promote these negative effects?  Low-calorie “snack packs,” sweet granola bars and processed bagged chips are just a few favorites that are loaded with synthetic ingredients and chemically formulated flavors. We believe that to feel good, you have to eat good. So lets dive into some of the healthiest, tastiest snack foods on the planet and get our feel-good on for the summer!
 
You worked hard for your poolside-ready body; why compromise it with misleading “low-calorie” foods? Did you know that most low-fat, low-calorie foods are made with an artificial sweetener called aspartame? A study conducted at The Yale University of Biology and Medicine observed a “positive correlation between artificial sweetener use and weight gain.1 Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose  actually enhance your appetite, and consuming artificial sweeteners has been shown to lead to even greater weight gain than sugar. Not to mention the toxic effects this sugary impostor has on your mind: Studies have shown that “the putative excitatory neurotransmitters and neurotoxin aspartate (Asp) destroy neurons in the brain.2 Ditch the artificially sweet snack foods and opt for something that works to improve mind, body and soul! Check out our naturally sweet superfood cereals, loaded with flavors such as acai, ginger and cacao.
 
Family Friendly & Delicious!
 
Granola Bars are all time favorite at any age. Great for on-the-go parents and hungry kids, they are convenient and inexpensive. Let’s take a look at what convenience is worth these days…how about a dose of artificial colors and flavors? Artificial flavors are a mystery altogether; you never know what artificially went into your food to create that flavor. It could be one unnatural additive, or a blend of hundreds of additives. Another gamble we’re not willing to take is artificial colorants. According to one study, “every year, food manufacturers pour 15 million pounds of artificial food dyes into U.S. foods — and that amount only factors in eight different varieties.”3 Currently in the United States, nine of the food dyes currently approved are linked with massive health problems ranging from allergies to hyperactivity in children. The same study also found that “Red #40, Blue #2 and Yellow #5 have been linked to hyperactivity, hypersensitivity and other behavioral effects in children.3  Most parents will agree in unison—this is not what we want for our kids! Instead, try a natural, minimally processed granola alternative; Muesli is a family friendly snack that is versatile, fun to eat, and comes in 4 fun flavors!
 
Everyone loves a good trail mix! 

Whether out on a picnic, at the beach or enjoying the summer weather at home, trail mix is a snack time staple. Pre-made trail mixes are often full of salt and strange looking shapes – but the most terrifying ingredients at the top of our list are Synthetic Trans Fats and Monosodium Glutamate (MSG).

 
Synthetic trans fats are common in trail mixes which contain partially hydrogenated oils that promote a longer shelf life and a desirable texture. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “consuming trans fat increases low-density lipoprotein [LDL, or bad] cholesterol. This risk factor contributes to the leading cause of death in the U.S. – coronary heart disease.4 The study concludes with a profound statement: “…avoiding artificial trans fat could prevent 10,000-20,000 heart attacks and 3,000-7,000 coronary heart disease deaths each year in the U.S.4
 
What About MSG?

Monosodium Glutamate, known more commonly as “MSG,” is a flavor enhancement often used in fast food and prepackaged snacks. MSG is an excitotoxin, which means it overexcites your cells to the point of damage or death, causing brain dysfunction and impairment to varying degrees. Take the risk out of your snacking! Choose an all natural, raw and organic trail mix – or better yet, create your own! We love the savory combination of Gopal’s Wraps, Living Intentions Garlic Nut Blend, Organic Raw Cashews and Botija Olives!


 
Don’t compromise your health for convenience—make your summertime snack experience unforgettable with these sweet and savory items!

New at Sunfood: The Breakfast You Never Knew About

Seven Sundays Muesli

It Took Us 100 Years To Get, But Your New Breakfast Is Finally Here

We fell in love with a new breakfast food! It’s called Seven Sundays Muesli (pronounced “muse-lee”), a mix of nutritious grains, nuts, seeds and dried fruits. Unlike most cereals and granolas, there are no added sugars, oils or preservatives. So if you’re looking for a super nutritious way to start your day, or just hungry for something outside your normal routine, muesli is a fast, healthy, and delicious breakfast!
 
Does Vanilla Cherry Pecan sound tempting? How about Ginger Pear Macadamia? Even the Original flavor is loaded with coconut, currants, flax seeds, banana chips and spices!
 
Drooling yet?
 
Let’s back it up a sec.

 

The History

Muesliwas first introduced over 100 years ago by Swiss nutritionist, Maximilian Bircher-Benner, who believed diet was essential to good health and used the cereal as part of his therapy. Today, muesli remains a breakfast staple in Europe and many parts of the world.

 

The Flavors

All four wheat-free Seven Sundays Muesli varieties are made with simple, whole ingredients. They start with rolled whole grains (oats, barley and rye), jazzing it up with crunchy, satisfying nuts & seeds, and sweet, delicious dried fruits.
 
  • Bircher (unsweetened) – A nutritional powerhouse made of 12 super healthy ingredients including almonds, coconut, apples, flax seeds, dates and raisins, Bircher is vegan and untoasted—it’s the one for all the raw foodies out there!
  • Vanilla Cherry Pecan – Made with natural Bing cherries and rich, nutty pecans, Vanilla Cherry Pecan Muesli is gently toasted and sweetened with organic honey—so good you can eat it as dessert!
  • Ginger Pear Macadamia – Made with natural ground ginger, chewy sun-dried pears and tender macadamia nuts, Ginger Pear Macadamia Toasted Muesli is lightly sweetened with organic honey—perfect for those of you looking to spice up your breakfast routine!
  • Original – A tried and true breakfast staple, Original Toasted Muesli is packed with Brazil nuts for a boost of selenium and tasty additions like coconut, currants, flax seeds, banana chips, organic honey and delectable spices like cinnamon and cardamom! Yum!

 

The Nutritional Breakdown

One 1/2 cup serving of Seven Sundays Muesli has:
  • 25% of your daily value of fiber
  • 6 - 8 grams of protein
  • <1% sodium
  • 11 grams or less of sugar (from organic honey, dates and fruit!)
  • 2% – 25% of your daily minerals: Calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, selenium & more!

 

What People Are Saying

Bircher
“I love this flavor because it is the simplest one, unsweetened, and untoasted. The healthiest choice for me and it’s delicious too!” – Lissa

Vanilla Cherry Pecan
“This cereal is so great. It has an awesome texture that goes well with raw milk. Unlike regular granola it has big pieces of nuts and dried fruit, which is a plus.” – Julie

Ginger Pear Macadamia
“A new fave breakfast!. I love the texture and natural taste of this product.” – J

Original
“This is pure wholesome goodness, makes me feel terrific!” – Richard 
 


 

Why Is Seven Sundays Such an Awesome Company?

Seven Sundays is a husband/wife team that turned a great idea into a homemade business. Hannah and Brady are all about health in the fullest sense of the word, creating muesli that’s good for you and the planet. The ingredients are sustainably sourced, all natural, minimally processed, and non-GMO, as well as free of pesticides, preservatives, added oils and refined sugars. Even the recyclable packaging reflects who they are, as does the fact that they’re a part of 1% for the Planet, which is a formal commitment to donate 1% of their sales each year to environmental causes.
 
“Our inspiration for Seven Sundays muesli came to us during a trip to New Zealand. ‘Kiwis,’ as native New Zealanders are often called, live active, sustainable lifestyles built upon enjoying simple pleasures and making the most out of their treasured and limited natural resources. One of our favorite parts of the trip was starting each day with a bowl of fresh, homemade muesli, a popular New Zealand breakfast. It was nothing like the cereals we were used to — no puffs, flakes, shreds or clusters – instead loaded with all natural ingredients. With no suitable replacement back home, we decided to make our own New Zealand inspired mixes!”
- Hannah & Brady

 

Ways to Enjoy Muesli

Muesli is a fast, tasty, and nutritious breakfast. It’s commonly soaked in milk (get creative with almond or coconut milk!). You can eat it right out of the box, sprinkle on top of yogurt, cook it like a traditional oatmeal, or try out the delicious recipes on the box! Bircher has an amazing raw recipe called Lunch Box Bites made simply by adding nut butter, a banana, cacao powder, milk of your choice, then rolling into balls, refrigerating for 2 hours and chowing down! Simple, minimal prep time, and scrumptious!

No more boring breakfasts! Seven Sunday Mueslis are fast and easy, full of nutrition and flavor, and super affordable!

What People Are Saying
“This is the best product I have bought in years. I have had cauliflower in the refrigerator for 5 weeks. It was huge. It still looks like it did the day I bought it. – Carol

 
I have had this device for a few months now, and I’ve seen that my greens, veggies and fruit now last in my fridge for a couple weeks, rather than a few days. It pays for itself and then some. Since I eat a ton of produce, I estimate I’ve already saved $$$$ and time because I don’t have to go to the store as often now.” – Lauren
 
I purchased the Berry Breeze a couple of weeks ago and I really like it. It works great. I juice every other day and buy produce once a week, some items are a 2-week supply. My greens, fruit and berries are fresh for much longer. I recommend the product to everyone who wants their produce to last longer and not be spoiled in a couple of days. Don’t waste money in a garbage can, buy the Berry Breeze.” – Hanna
 
“I purchased Berry Breeze with high hopes that it would sustain my fruits and veggies for weeks, and that it would sanitize my fridge and eliminate any mold/bacteria that causes odor.

Are Your Hormones Controlling You?

Sunfood Maca Powder

 
Are Your Hormones Controlling You?Sunfood Maca Powder
Whether you’re a man or a woman, the answer is yes! Hormones are chemical messengers that tell our cells what to do, from energy levels and reproductive functions to metabolism and mood. The reason most of us think of women’s issues when we think of “hormones” is not because we, or someone we love, is just a tad irritable today. It is because some of the most well known conditions result from hormonal imbalance. It’s the Big 3: PMS, menstrual cramps, and menopause (oh my!).
 
 
Natural Remedies for Hormone Imbalance
A natural cure for hormonal imbalance is not something that we can recommend, but we know after being in the superfood movement for 19 years that certain foods can support the proper functioning of the endocrine system.
 
While we know that women’s hormonal issues often indirectly affect the men they love (we’ll leave it at that), we’re going to delve into hormonal health for women and men, too!
 
 
Ladies… Is Maca a Natural Remedy for Menopausal Symptoms?
The superstar root vegetable known as maca was sacred to the Incas and has been used as a food and medicine in South America for centuries. It has a solid reputation as a powerful enhancer to stamina, strength and libido; it is even said that the Incan warriors would consume maca before long journeys and battles.
 
Sunfood Maca ExtremeModern research has shown that maca has the potential to balance hormone levels and alleviate perimenopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweating, interrupted sleep patterns, nervousness, depression and heart palpitations.1 A double-blind study concluded that maca “may act as a toner of hormonal processes, leading to alleviation of discomfort felt by perimenopausal women, hence, its potential use as non-hormonal alternative to HRT [Hormone Replacement Therapy] program.”1
 
Our female customers of all ages have reported improved hormonal health when taking our Maca over time, experiencing regulated periods and the alleviation of cramps and PMS symptoms. All of this from a root vegetable!
 
Customer Reviews: Red Maca
“I suffer from terrible PMS symptoms and I have to take an Aleve to alleviate the pain. I decided to take a natural approach and try maca. I am so amazed at the benefits. I didn’t experience any pain during my cycle!!! I will never stop using it!!!” – J
 
“Restored male energy in my 50s that I had decades earlier. My wife also takes it and has no menopausal troubles.” – Re-energized husband
 
 
Men – Are You Concerned about Your Prostate?
Sunfood Red MacaWhen it comes to hormone health, maca is the superfood root vegetable to pay attention to. In particular, red maca has been found to have astounding effects on men’s prostate health. While it contains the same nutritional profile as regular maca, one study found that red maca “may reduce the risk of prostate cancer development.”2 Researchers found that this cruciferous vegetable directly caused the prostate to reduce in size, successfully addressing the issue of prostate enlargement, which is “a hormone-mediated phenomenon.”2
 

 
Three Types of Raw, Organic Maca Powder to Choose From
Maca: A blend of red and golden roots, depending on what color the maca is as it is pulled out of the Earth.

Red Maca: Only the red maca roots are separated at harvest, milder in flavor with the same nutritional profile as regular maca.

Maca Extreme: 100% black/purple maca, 3-4 times the concentration of regular and red maca with much of the starch removed for easier digestion.


 
If You Want More Energy and Libido

Craving Something Sweet?

Dates and Agave Nectar

Craving Something Sweet?

How about something savory? Maybe a little bit of both? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Packed full of nutrients, delicious and versatile, this culinary adventure promises to be a date to remember.

Celebrated in early Egypt and Mesopotamia, dates were believed to inspire fertility and longevity, often served to the elite courts as sacred offerings. Throughout history the date palm has been recorded in hieroglyphics and scrolls, promoting immunity and eternity. Centuries later, we continue to praise these exotic little superfruits for their superior nutrient content.

Just one serving of dates is loaded with dietary fiber, muscle-building proteins, and essential omega fatty acids required for normal bodily functions. They also have minerals like potassium, iron, calcium, and magnesium, as well as B vitamins. They’re chock full of goodness and bursting with flavor!

The Sunfood Difference

Sunfood’s careful assortment of dates include Deglet Noor, Khadrawhy and Zahidi selections. Our dates are raw, organic, Non-GMO and are never compromised with additives or pesticides. Locally sourced and naturally dried, these sweet superfoods are a perfect addition to any diet.

 Sweetened naturally with easily digestible simple sugars, dates hardly require added sweetness to enjoy.

Need Something a Little Sweeter?

If your sweet tooth is calling for something extra rich, our Agave Nectar is the perfect pairing! Agave is a natural sweetener alternative to highly processed or refined sugars. It is derived from the carbohydrates present in the agave plant, native to South America. With a vanilla-like aroma and hint of maple, this nectar is truly one of a kind.

The Sunfood Difference

Our raw, certified organic, non-GMO agave nectar is low-temperature processed and minimally filtered, thus retaining its natural properties. Made from certified organic blue agave, we use state-of-the-art technology to make the least heat-exposed agave available. A delicious alternative sweetener, use Agave for your recipes, smoothies, and desserts!
Raspberry Cashew Verrine

Check out this amazing recipe that uses both dates and agave nectar. It’s as delicious as it looks!

Ready For This? Try A Creamy, Delicious, Brand New Superfood!

It’s crispy. Delicately creamy. Rich and buttery. Sound like junk food? Think again because this super nut is raw, vegan, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and last but not least, loaded with nutrients!
 
Sunfood Macadamia NutsIntroducing our brand new Macadamia Nuts! Did you know that macadamia nuts have B vitamins and minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium and manganese? Yes, they’re delicious and healthy, too!
 
What about those fats, you ask? The theory of eating fat and packing on the pounds is a myth—as long are you’re eating the right fats, that is. And macadamia nuts have the right fats, meaning that science has proven the health benefits in clinical studies.
 
Weight Control
A study conducted on Japanese women found that after three weeks, “bodyweight and body mass index were decreased in the group fed macadamia nuts.”1 The beneficial effects that nuts have with weight management is no secret in the scientific community; one clinical review of 31 studies found that “compared with control diets, diets enriched with nuts did not increase body weight, body mass index, or waist circumference in controlled clinical trials.”2 
 
Heart Health
That study on Japanese women we just mentioned? Researchers also found that the results for the women eating macadamias showed “total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol [LDL – bad cholesterol] were significantly decreased.”1

Yet another study was conducted on men and women who were mildly hypercholesterolemic, meaning they had a mild excess of cholesterol in the bloodstream. Just like in the Japanese study, the subjects eating a diet rich in macadamia nuts had lower cholesterol levels, leading researchers to conclude that “macadamia nuts can be included in a heart-healthy dietary pattern that reduces lipid/lipoprotein CVD [cardiovascular disease] risk factors.”3 

Brain Power

Sunfood Macadamia NutsMacadamia nuts have omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. These fats are classified as “essential” because you’re body can’t produce them on its own; they must be obtained through food. Omega-3s are especially important because your brain craves them. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “symptoms of omega-3 fatty acid deficiency include fatigue, poor memory, mood swings or depression, and poor circulation.”4 So make sure you’re getting your omega-3s!

 

Flavor Factor

We know we don’t have to tell you how irresistibly delicious macadamia nuts are. But did you know that you can use them to make a raw vegan cheese substitute? Check out this amazing recipe…

Nature’s Most Unique Sweet & Smoky Ancestral Food

Sunfood Mesquite Powder

 
Mesquite: A Little Pod with a lot of Boom!

A highly revered superfood in ancestral cultures, Mesquite Powder boasts an impressive variety of proteins, heart healthy fiber, immune boosting vitamins and essential minerals. Mesquite’s combination of calcium and magnesium “make it ideal for maintaining normal bone health, which may aid in the prevention of osteoporosis,” 1according to the University of Yokohama.

Beyond bone health, Mesquite also has great value in its ability to help balance blood sugar levels. The sugars in Mesquite come from fructose as opposed to glucose. Fructose does not require insulin for the body to use it. The soluble fibers found in mesquite cause it to be digested more slowly than foods like wheat or corn, which can cause spikes in blood sugar levels.

A special phytochemical called quercetin occurs naturally in Mesquite, which has been found to play a fundamental role in reducing chronic neuro-inflammation. A recent study conducted by  the University of Torino states that “Quercetin improved permeation across the blood-brain barrier into the brain, reaching target cells which may prevent or reduce [inflammation] progression.”2

 
What is Mesquite?
Mesquite is a leguminous tree found in some of Mother Earth’s driest climates. From the northernmost point of California to the teeny-tiny tip of Chile, Mesquite has been utilized by indigenous peoples for centuries. This ancestral food was traditionally prepared by removing the seed pods from the tree to be sun-dried, and ground slowly into a fine powder. Our ancestors made this powder into a meal, which served as the primary base for many foods still found today in American Southwestern cultures. 

Known as the “Tree of Life” by Native American cultures, Mesquite has been known to contribute every part of the tree for food, medicine, fabric and flour. The blooming flowers of the tree are cultivated for their syrup, which is turned into a unique spiced honey, and the bark of the tree is smoked to create the famous base for an American favorite—Mesquite barbecue flavoring. The most historic use of the mesquite tree, however, is the harvest of the seed pods – ground into a nutritionally dense flour or meal.

 
The Sunfood Difference
Most mesquite powders on the market are quite coarse and grainy and taste slightly toasted. Our certified organic, non-GMO Mesquite Powder is processed at low temperatures to preserve delicate enzymes and nutrients. The raw powder has a sweet, rich, molasses-like flavor with a hint of caramel and blends well into smoothies and recipes, especially those with Cacao and Maca.
 
 
How to use Mesquite
Mesquite’s unique flavor lends itself deliciously to a variety of savory or sweet dishes. Its taste has been described as rich, nutty, and molasses-like with a hint of caramel. Try combining Mesquite with Cacao Powder and Maca Powder in a creamy smoothie, use to flavor a salad dressing, or add it to your soups for an authentic ancestral experience!
