Ingredients Highlights

Asparagus has a very high respiration rate which makes it more perishable than many other vegetables. Wrapping the ends in damp paper towel for fridge storage and consuming within 48 hours of purchase is recommended.

Cayenne Pepper has several surprising benefits. Cayenne pepper may actually support circulatory health.

Cumin improves digestion and immune function and promotes detoxification. It has antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Health experts today believe lemon can support a healthy metabolism and help maintain the immune system.

When it comes to olive oil, “Extra Virgin” is the highest quality you can get. It comes from the first pressing of the olives with no chemicals used to extract the oil.

Tahini is made by grinding up sesame seeds. Similar to nut butters, it is a calorically dense food that is rich in minerals.

Turmeric is a beautiful golden spice that’s originally from Southern India. Thousands of studies demonstrate turmeric’s numerous health benefits including supporting cardiovascular health, healthy inflammation levels, and digestion.
