Creamy cannellini & garlic hummus - 16 oz jar
This isn’t your everyday hummus. Jen’s Jars breaks away from the traditional chickpea hummus by blending an even more nutritious bean into the mix. Cannellini beans, also known as white beans, have a slightly nutty taste and a mild earthiness with a tender, creamy flesh. Unlike chickpeas, cannellini beans don’t have a tough outer skin that can be difficult to digest. They break down easily and come with a slew of nutritional benefits, such as regulating blood sugar levels and helping to stimulate weight loss. Compared to chickpeas, cannellini beans are lower in calories, fat and sodium and higher in potassium and dietary fiber.
Jen’s Jars Creamy Cannellini & Garlic Hummus mixes organic cannellini beans with extra virgin olive oil, organic lemon juice, a hefty portion of organic garlic (also known as nature’s antibiotic), Himalayan sea salt, and the heart-healthy spices: cumin, paprika and cayenne pepper. Aside from being a cholesterol-free, sugar-free and low sodium snack, this spread is a great way to get raw garlic into your diet. Enjoy a dollop on a salad, spread on a sandwich, or use it as a dip for veggies, grain-free crackers or rice cakes. Store in the refrigerator and use or freeze within 14 days.
spinach & Pine nut Pesto - 16 oz Jar
Sick of pesto that comes in a teeny, tiny jar and has to be used sparingly? With organic spinach as the main ingredient, Jen’s Jars Spinach and Pine Nut Pesto puts a healthier and more accessible spin on an already popular food. And you don’t have to feel guilty about spreading it on everything you eat!
The organic ingredients in this spread offer a ton of nutritional benefits, such as healthy fats, Vitamin A, protein, and a hefty portion of manganese. Manganese helps the body with fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation and is necessary for normal brain and nerve function.
With organic pine nuts, extra virgin olive oil, a generous portion of raw garlic and a slight coconutty finish, this pesto is a healthy, flavorful spread that goes with anything. From spreading on crackers or toast, drizzling over eggs or salads, or using as a fresh, raw pasta sauce, the uses for this pesto are endless! Store in the refrigerator and use or freeze within 35 days.
Raw cacao dark Chocolate spread - 16 oz jar
(Available by special order. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
This healthy spin on a traditionally guilt-laden food will have you oohing and aahing. Jen’s Jars Raw Cacao Dark Chocolate Spread uses raw cacao powder rather than cocoa powder. What’s the difference (other than spelling)? Raw cacao is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans, while cocoa powder has been roasted at high temperatures. The roasting of the cocoa kills off beneficial enzymes and reduces the overall nutritional quality, whereas raw cacao maintains all the nutritional benefits of the cocoa bean – such as iron, magnesium, and flavonoids with antioxidant properties.
Using pure maple syrup and organic apple puree for sweetening, this decadent treat is free from refined sugars. Unlike many of the empty sweeteners we see used these days, maple syrup is chock full of vitamins – such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and B6 – and minerals – such as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. The apple puree adds a nice portion of fiber and Vitamin C as well. This chocolate spread isn’t just sweet for sweet-sake, it nourishes your body and your soul! Store in the refrigerator and use or freeze within 14 days.
