Rawnola® Bars and Cereal

Rawnola® is the brain child of raw food chef and expert Jake Hopkins. Boy are we glad he took the time to craft these this tasty product line. Seriously have you tried any of these amazing products?They are all very tasty, light, crunchy and easy to digest.

Jake Hopkins is a fellow desert dweller and good friend of Zebra Organics. His Goji Bar was our very first product, so as you can tell we have a fondness for him and his creations.

What I absolutely love about his creations is their taste and texture. If you have yet to try just one then you should pick up a bar on your next order. They are light and crunchy, which is a wonderful combination, they are sweet but not too sweet and they digest well. If you find texture satisfying then you will delight in all the Rawnola® products. And, the subtle blending of spices is perfect, not overbearing and easy to enjoy. Unlike most raw cereals and products out there Rawnola® does not contain any buckwheat.

Sprouted buckwheat I find hard to digest, it has a somewhat abrasive quality on the stomach. Where as the raw sprouted almonds are light almost flaky, this makes for a nice bite and good body.

Two Delicious Varieties of Rawnola® Cereal to choose from

Raw Cacao Rawnola® I can almost guarantee you will love these cereals. If you ever were a fan of chocolate cereal as a kid, then you are in store for a treat my friend. The Heirloom Cacao Rawnola® is hands down the very best Raw chocolate cereal on the market. This may sound biased but its true. This is our business we should know and we stand behind the quality of the products we offer. And if chocolate is not your thing then try Vanilla Rawnola® an equally delicious variety of Rawnola®.

The Super Duper Importance of the Super Berry Goji Berry

Its simple we could all benefit from eating goji berries.  Goji berries are truly an amazing food, they contain a full spectrum of amino acids, are loaded with anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and they are tasty.  Imagine, a food so healthy for you that actually tastes good!  And they are an amazing color red.   Can you think of any other food in the health food world that is anything like the goji berry?

There are tons of vitamin and mineral packed foods out there but are they as snackable? Are you really going to snack on spirulina? No.  This is not to put spirulina down but to show how versatile the goji berry is, how it can bridge the health food gap because it tastes good.  

Ok but what do they actually do and how should I use them . . . ?

The unique nutritional content of goji berries is supportive to the immune system. The nutritional content of the goji berry includes the following:

  • 18 amino acids
  • a huge spectrum of caroteniods
  • vitamin C 
  • zinc
  • polysaccarides that support the production of HGH (human growth hormone)

Poly (multi) saccaride (sugar), polysaccarides are multi-chained sugars, they occur in wide spectrum and are common in many plants.  The variety found in goji berries are of great benefit to helping the body to regulate cholesterol, support the immune system, endocrine system, reproductive system and to nourish the blood.

Their Role in Chinese Medicine
Goji berries are one of the topic medicinal herbs in all of Chinese medicine. This says alot because Chinese medicine contains hundreds of herbs and is roughly 4000 years old (give or take).  According to Chinese medicine goji berries nurture our Yin aspect.  As such they help to moisten the body and help the body to produce fluids. This is why they are good for the reproductive system.

How to use them?
There are a variety ways of to use the berry, you can:

  • snack on them
  • add them to smoothies
  • add them to trail mixes
  • last but not least make a tea with them

Goji berries as a tea is one of the most common and traditional ways to use them.  It is simple, effective and makes a very good tasting tea.  Add a small handful to a cup of water, bring to boil, them let simmer for 15 minutes.  Cool, strain and drink.  You can use goji berry tea as a base for other teas; it makes a great base for green tea, yerba mate and rooibos.

And, if you have not tried Goji Berry bars yet consider adding one or five of them to your next order,  you will not be disappointed.  They are crunchy, a bit chewy, sweet and satisfying.  In China they say that a handful of goji berries in the morning will keep you smiling all day.  In my experience this is true, eat more goji berries and notice how your mood shifts. Try it for your self.

Chef Jake Hopkins – creator of the Goji Bar, Organic Food Bar

Our very dear friend Chef Jacob Hopkins has been delighting taste buds for years.

Purchase Chef Jake’s Earthling Organics organic food bars and breakfast cereal.

Chef Jake began to perfect his talents for uncooked cuisine in the year 2000 at Juliano’s Organica of San Francisco with, now Santa Monica based, world renown Chef Juliano. Jake then went on to study with New York City based Dr. David Jubb, Ph.D learning about blood formation, cell regeneration, digestion and the “Secrets of an Alkaline Body.”

Jake’s Unbaked began to take hold after Jake produced a recipe which he called the “Goji Bar.” The Goji Bar idea struck him when he returned to his car one hot summer’s day to find his goji berries had warmed up and were sticking to some nuts. He tested his “Goji Bar” recipe on friends and was promptly encouraged to keep on making them… a whole new health bar was born.

Jake gave a bar to David Wolfe who said, “Make as many of these as you can!”, and so began Jake’s Unbaked, grown from a desire and passion for the finest, most nutritious foods that nature brings.

Jake was the first Raw/Live food chef to appear on the Food Network (see TV clip below) – when Randy Olsen put Jake on a show with himself & Giada De Laurentiis…

Jacob has worked with many celebrities and health seekers alike, developing a well-known and trusted reputation as a leader in the world of Raw/Live foods. Jake is a sweet spirit and we just love him!

Zebra Organics is proud to make available to you Chef Jake’s organic food bars; Goji Bars, Rawnola Bars, Yogi Bars, Matcha Bars, and the new Rawnola Breakfast Cereal… to learn more or purchase these organic, healthy bars or cereal visit the Zebra Organics store!
