Review/Giveaway More Than Alive Raw Nuts Package

 
I have recently made a big push to go with a real food diet for our family.  This is not as hard as it is for some people.  I have long made almost all of our foods from scratch, at first out of necessity due to it being cheaper, and then as an added bonus of tasting amazing and being better for us.  But still, our diets had tons of room for improvement.  The more nutrient rich and organic I can make my cooking the better.  So when More Than Alive offered to send me some items for review I was thrilled. 
 
 
More Than Alive is a company that carries food storage, high quality water filters, bulk foods, bulk herbs,  supplements, books, and clothing accessories.  They focus on natural health and promoting health through high quality products.
 
They have an extensive Bulk Foods sections where they carry things like nuts and seeds, nut flours, black teas, spices, and cacao powder to name a few.
 
 

 They sent me their Nut Package for review.  I use nuts all the time in my cooking and snack foods.  Nuts are extremely healthy.  They contain tons of minerals and healthy fats.  The minerals are especially important to the healthy function of our bodies.  I received one pound each of Raw Almonds, Raw Cashews, Raw Walnuts, and Raw Pecans.

My children love having nuts mixed into their yogurt as a treat, or mixed into snack mixes in the afternoon.  This is one of the best ways to get them minerals in my opinion.  Another way I use these nuts is mixed into my morning oatmeal. I like the walnuts personally and use steel cut oats which metabolize much slower into your blood stream so there is less of a sugar spike from the carbs.

I used some of the almonds and pecans in my Homemade Healthy Granola.  The almonds were big and plump and had a great sweet taste.  The pecans were huge and full halves.  The quality is obviously very high.  The cashews we have just been eating out of hand as a snack and with yogurt.  They are really yummy.  I haven't used the walnuts because I am saving them for holiday pies, but I did sample a few and they are very good.  Sometimes walnuts can be bitter but these are not.  Walnuts can be used in many recipies that call for pecans and I have had a great walnut pie that is like pecan pie.
 

I would recommend these nuts to anyone, they are at a good price and would make great additions to the diet or use in holiday baking.
