Nutrition in Simple Terms – Back to Basics

Mum’s Original™ Products

I attended my first LIPS (Ladies in Philanthropy for Southlake) event at Nature’s Emporium Health Store the week before last.  I had no idea of what to expect but low and behold, the keynote speaker explained nutrition in the clearest manner I had ever experienced in all the years I have been attending nutrition seminars and classes.

Ann Barnes surrendered her legal career to start a company that is improving the health of this world at a rapid pace. It is called Mum’s Original™. Each of the women in the large audience were given a copy of Ann’s book called Better Being and a box containing samples of 8 of the different Mum’s Original™ products plus two different cookies made of two different sets of ingredients from Ann’s products.  Ann proceeded to explain the health benefits of eating hemp, chia, gogi berries, oats, cacao, coconut sugar, banana powder and quinoa while we, the audience had the opportunity to try each food.  What a delightful way to learn!  Ann’s generosity was truly unheard of but so fully appreciated by the ladies in attendance.

So, a little about Mum’s Original™….  They make some of the healthiest and best-tasting foods available to mankind.  Their “back to basics” approach to sensible food, conscientious farming and wholesome goodness embraces many of the simple principles our grandparents understood. Natural and organic ingredients are farmed the old fashioned way, combined and then sold in eco-friendly packaging.  There are no man-made toxins in the farming or production and all products are non-GMO and grown without herbicides or pesticides.

The company is conscious of the importance of the entire cycle of food: seed programs help to ensure that the best seeds are cultivated and grown; the soil quality and sustainability is always ensured; pristine growing practices exist; attention is paid to how food is processed to ensure the natural benefits are properly maintained; and quality control standards and practices are maintained from seed to shelf.

Mum’s Original™ Hemp Hearts are a delicious way to get your daily dose of whole protein, anti-oxidants, soluble fiber, minerals and essential fatty acids.  One tablespoon provides 5g of easily digestible vegetable protein and over 1.2g of Omega 3. It is also rich in chlorophyll, vitamin E, enzymes and GLA.

Mum’s Original™ Organic Chia is an excellent source of Omega 3’s, whole protein, anti-oxidants, and insoluble fiber with plenty of vitamins and minerals.

One of the most nutritionally rich foods, Goji Berries have immune boosting benefits and contain many carotenoids, numerous vitamins, over 30 essential and trace elements, antioxidants and 19 amino acids.

Mum’s Original™ oats contain less than 5ppm gluten.  Full of whole protein, dietary fiber and minerals, oats are the ideal food with which to start the day.  They offer Quick Flake Oats, Steel Cut Oats and Oat Flour.

Their Coconut Sugar is a sweet nutrient powerhouse and loaded with fiber and their Coconut Oil is rich in taste and boasts numerous health benefits.

They even have a really rare food – Vine Ripened Banana Powder.  Their bananas are grown and ripened in the full sun, then dehydrated at a low temperature.

Mum’s Original™ Heirloom Quinoa is packed with protein, good fats, nutrients and fiber.  Their quinoa requires no pre-washing or soaking.

Mum’s Original™ only uses the most nutrient dense variety of cacao (Organic Criollo Arriba Nacional Fino De Aroma). Cacao contains over 300 compounds including: protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals. For a super boost of energy and nutritional benefits, they offer Cacao Powder, Cacao Nibs, Coconut Cacao Nibs and Cacao Beans.

We didn’t sample it but the company also carries Mum’s Original™ Inner Mountain Rock Salt, which is obtained from dead lake beds that are millions of years old.  Their Inner Mountain Rock Salt offers a whopping 84 essential minerals.

In my next blog post, I will share more details about the Mum’s Original cacao productsand a wonderful recipe for Choco-Orange Balls. Stay tuned!
