Think Healthy this Holiday Season!

 Omega Nutrition's easy to make, heart-healthy chocolate cake!

This flour-less dessert is made with Omega Nutrition's delicious Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder.

Omega Nutrition Chocolate Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder Cake

This rich, dark chocolate cake is high in protein and nutrients like zinc & essential fatty acids (linoleic and oleic acids) Because of its richness serve it with a light, fruity sauce or sliced fresh strawberries.  Watch the baking time closely.  Test for doneness after about 35 minutes. If the top of the cake feels jiggly to the touch it needs more time, if not, pull it out.

2 cups Omega Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder
½ tsp baking soda
¾ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup arrowroot powder
1 ¼ tsp sea salt                                   
3 large organic eggs
2/3 cup honey
1/3 cup grape seed oil
1 ¼ cups coconut milk
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Oil a 9-inch round cake pan.  In a large mixing bowl whisk together the pumpkin seed flour, cocoa powder, arrowroot powder, baking soda and sea salt.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, honey, oil, coconut milk, and vanilla.  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk together well.

Pour batter into prepared pan.  Place pan on the center rack in the oven and bake for approximately 40 minutes.

Cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then run knife around the edge of the pan and flip cake onto a wire rack to cool.  Serve warm or at room temperature.  It is delicious served with mashed raspberries and a drizzle of agave nectar.

Inspired by the natural simplicity of dried fruit, Bana Krisp offers a delicious, nutritious snack with nothing artificial! 
Made with 100% Natural ingredients, Bana Krisp is offered in four distinct flavours, without any added flavouring.

A blend of banana, organic coconut and organic sesame seeds is spiced up with:
  • FRUITS - orange and lemon rind and fresh raspberries for a fruity punch
  • ALMOND & CACAO - cacao and almonds with a splash of rum (alcohol is eliminated in the drying process)
  • PISTACHIO & ANISE - pistachio and anise for an aromatic flavour
  • CAFE - fair trade coffee for coffee lovers
Bana Krisp is dried at a low temperature, creating a concentration of flavour. The result is a perfectly thin and crispy texture that will satisfy everyone from toddler to senior. Bana Krisp is so rich in nutrients that a third of a bag (one serving) will satisfy... and so tasty, that you may want to eat the whole bag!

Bana Krisp is a Gluten Free and Vegan treat, suitable for the most stringent dietary needs with no added sugar or salt, no cholesterol, no trans fat, no milk products, no eggs, no wheat. Better still, as well as offering the healthful properties of coconut, it is a source of iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium, copper and zinc.

DR. SPONGE - Sustainable & Green Cleansing

Dr. Sponge Green Skincare Products
What Is Dr. Sponge™?
Dr. Sponge™ is an all-natural and biodegradable facial and body cleansing sponge made from revolutionary plant fiber of Konjac, which is an exotic plant native to Eastern Asia that contains natural richness in protein, vitamin (A, E, D, B1, B2, B6, B12, and C), potassium, copper, magnesium, iron, zinc, fatty acids and folic acid. Originally designed for babies and sensitive skin, Dr. Sponge™ is extremely gentle, suitable for all skin types, and offers sustainable solutions to various skin concerns.

Mild Exfoliation For Even The Most Sensitive Skin
All skin types, even babies and children, can enjoy Dr. Sponge™ without the fear of irritation because the amazing sponges are extremely gentle and soft on even the most sensitive skin. They are completely natural and contain no harmful fillers and chemicals. The unique texture created by the plant fiber allows Dr. Sponge™ to smoothly glide across the skin and mildly exfoliate simultaneously.

Effective Cleansing To Start Off A Great Skincare Routine
The natural texture of Dr. Sponge™ is very powerful at clearing pores, removing makeup, dirt, oil, and even blackheads. To maximize the cleansing ability of Dr. Sponge™, gently massage the skin in circular motion with the sponge for about 30 seconds. You will notice the skin feels clean and fresh. Then squeeze out excess water from the sponge and use it to dry the skin. Yes, there is no towel needed. Even without using additional cleansing products, Dr. Sponge™ is your solution for a clean, refreshed, and smooth skin.

Natural Toning For Balanced and Harmonized Skin
Thorough cleansing removes more than just makeup and dirt; it also strips your skin of its natural oil, so it is extremely important to replenish the skin after the initial cleansing. Dr. Sponge™ helps to tone and maintain a healthy skin balance because Konjac, the main ingredient in the sponge, is naturally and lightly alkaline. It can mildly balance skin acidity and neutralize the skin pH balance.

The All-In-One Skincare Solution
Dr. Sponge™ is the daily essential for a simple yet effective skincare routine. The natural ingredients and texture of the sponges are impressive at exfoliation, cleansing, toning, and hydration for all skin types. It is also excellent at moisture retention for long-lasting comfort and skin benefits.

Experience The Buzz of Sustainable and Green Cleansing
You’ve probably read how much we love Dr. Sponge™ because it is truly amazing for a green detox for the skin and the environment. We invite you to try and experience this new beauty sensation.
