Our Favorite Small Businesses

Holiday season is definitely a great time to support small businesses, although I do my best to support small and conscious brands 365 days a year. I especially pay close attention when it comes to the foods and drinks I consume. Supporting likeminded, conscious food brands with solid people standing behind these brands is really important to me -- and I hope it's important to you, too. Below is a list of brands that stay stocked in my house!

Spoonful is an overnight oats brands that uses local, organic oats and simple, real ingredients. Spoonful delivers a fresh, delicious, nutritious breakfast that you can enjoy at home, or grab on the go!

Kovi Kai is an organic food company providing raw, cold-pressed, frozen turmeric and ginger roots that are sourced from certified organic, small-scale farms on the islands of Hawaii. I add these to warm water, teas, smoothies and soups. A staple in our kitchen.

All of their baked goods are made with only NON GMO, Gluten Free, Grain Free and Dairy Free Ingredients. All their products are made as fresh as possible without the use of any preservatives, srefined sugar, gums, fillers, inflammatory oils, or 'natural' flavors. So tasty!
