Five New Foods Friday IGTV – Round Two Round Up

Friday is my favorite day of the week for many reasons! But each week, I share about new brands and products that I’ve discovered to excite patients and friends about health. Since we’re half way through the year, I’m recapping the series; everything from diabetic-friendly caramel sauce to adaptogenic nut butter! I care so much about supporting small businesses and contributing to their overall success. This series is sheerly a passion project done at no charge. Plus, any product included on these FNF has to pass the Whitness Nutrition nutrient-dense, taste and practicability test. They are all gluten, dairy and soy free, contain little added sugar and focus on real food ingredients. Plus, my husband approves of their tastiness, too!

I rounded up the Five New Foods Friday series, here and am sharing a favorite product from every week. These get an extra special Whitness Stamp of approval!
