Snack 1: BRAMI Lupini Beans
The legend of BRAMI dates back to the Ancient Egyptians Pharaohs, who brought lupini seeds with them in their tombs to the afterlife. Roman warriors relied on this protein-packed bean to fuel them on long journeys. Lupini beans are a good source of dietary fiber and protein. One cup of cooked lupini beans provides 200 calories, 5 grams of fiber and a whopping 26 grams of protein.
Snack 2: Blossom Bite Cookies
Through the use of edible flowers, New York small business, Blossom Bite seeks to create an experience where nature and food come together to inspire the delight of being outdoors for the busy urbanite. Each cookie is handcrafted using quality ingredients. These chewy, yet spicy cookies are created using hibiscus petals for a sweet, tart, spicy finish on the tongue.
Snack 3: Fruit Bliss Organic Turkish Figs
Figs are a fruit species of the ficus tree. They have the highest mineral and fiber content of all common fruits, nuts, or vegetables. One serving of these Fruit Bliss Organic Turkish Figs (fresh or dried) provides 6% of the Daily Value for calcium and iron, and 7% of the Daily Value for potassium. Figs are an excellent source of dietary fiber (1 serving provides 5 grams of fiber — 20% of the Daily Value!). They are also is rich in antioxidants, which appear to increase as they ripen. All of this for about 20 to 40 calories per fig. It’s no wonder they’re called “nature’s most nearly perfect fruit.”
Snack 4: Chocolove Chilies & Cherries in Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate with Ancho and Chipotle chilies and dried cherries offer flavors that transition from a deep sweet cherry and finish on a pleasantly warm chili note. This combination by Chocolove is to die for! Eating chilies may have cardiovascular benefits by protecting the fats in your blood from free-radicals. Chile peppers also give your immune system a boost with their concentrated levels of beta-carotene and Vitamin A.

Superfood Powder: Wild Foods Moringa Oleifera
The Moringa plant has been used used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine and is gaining popularity again as a superfood for its highly nutritious profile and powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and tissue-protective properties. Being a green plant, it’s full of antioxidants as many green plants usually do. But there’s something more that allows Moringa to beat many other leaf green superfoods; protein. Moringa has all 9 of nature’s essential amino acids, making it a “complete protein”. How to use: Mix 1/2 TSP in warm water, tea, coffee, smoothies or shakes. Use in salad dressings, salads and other cooking applications. We like to make Moringa oleifera guacamole. Thank you Wild Foods!
Rosebuds have been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. They have been found to contain vitamin C which boosts the immune system, promotes healthy skin and bones, and helps the body absorb iron. Rosebud tea is high in antioxidants called catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate, known as EGCG. EGCG has also be shown to kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells surrounding them.
