I’m a mini shark

17 Sep

It’s a trend, since living in the US, Shark Tank has been on TV every day of the week. It made me curious and gave me the urge to discover local startups …

For a couple of months, I’ve been contacting food and beverages startups and I discovered some interesting ones which became part of my brand new daily and healthy habits.

  • Apiterra raw Honey from Brooklyn

Perfect to make infusions, protein balls, to spread on a toast … see! Honey is not just there when you have a cough.

My favorite for the morning is ginger/tumeric (one table spoon in hot water and I sip it all morning). I alternate withe the matcha honey. I use the acay bay honey one for the protein ball.

  • NotMilk from Brooklyn.

It’s just like mommy would make it. Homemade with good products and lots of love: almond, walnuts, … basically nuts but no cows involved.

Notmilk is made with no bs and funky products but with straight and plain almonds sometimes with a twist for the adventurous ones (sesame, cinnamon or vanilla, …).

It’s also an home delivery service in beautiful glass bottles. The delivery happens 2 times a week (Tuesday and Thursday) and NotMilk takes back the empty bottles (I chose to be delivered once a week, 1 bottle (quart) each delivery).

The bottles come within a isotherm Notmilk bag.

  • Yumbutter.

Ok, we all know peanut butter and sometimes almond butter but have you ever tried the Yumbutter? It’s a small company from Wisconsin which wants to make the difference and feed the world. One pouch bought feeds one kid.

Taste it plain for pure energy or as replacement for the putter butter in you food preparations (like the protein balls, or mixed in my chia pudding, …).

  • Mombucha.
  • Made by Rich in Brooklyn! I’m not a fan of Kombucha but I like the Kombucha made by Mombucha! Beet and ginger is my favorite, and I love it in popsicles too.

    Let’s keep the ball rolling …

    2 Jul

    I just discovered the protein balls. The ones I tried were homemade, with almonds, cranberries, oat and dates.

    It was so good that I started to look at recipes to make my very own easy-to-make protein balls.

    I gather the ingredients and on a rainy Sunday, I started mixing and rolling.

    Ingredients and proportions

    How to do it?

    1. Pour the oat, chia seeds, peanut butter and honey in a bowl and mix
    2. Keep mixing
    3. Leave in the fridge during 20′, they are less sticky to roll
    4. Then add the cacao nibs, almonds and dried mango
    5. Start rolling
    6. Store in the freeze for up to 7 days (if you didn’t eat them all the same day)

    I eat them as a snack, with with chia pudding, as a desert … it’s sooo goood.
