Ecoideas Tigernut Bits-Not a nut, a tuber!

March 22, 2021 Report

Please select a reason

I had never heard of Tigernuts before and, having nut in the name, you would think that they were a nut, but they're not.  They're actually a tuber, meaning they grow in the ground like potatoes.  Tigernuts are high in potassium, vitamin E, phosphorous, magnesium, iron and zinc and are one of the most fibre-rich Superfoods found in nature.  Cool!  Aside from being nutrient rich, Tigernuts can help to improve digestion, lower/control blood sugar levels, improved heart health, and boost your immune system.  This is a great alternative for those living a nut free life!  Did I forget to say that the Tigernut bits are organic?!  Nah!  What else could I teach you about this product? Well, the product is keto-friendly, vegan, kosher, GMO-free, and gluten-free, nut-free and raw.

The uses for it are endless too.  It can be ate straight from the bag, added to smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, baking, salads, et cetera.  

Wait, what about the taste you may ask?!  Well, Tigernuts have a sweet, almond-like taste, but the texture is different.  Who would have guessed!

I cannot recommend this nut alternative enough!

Nude By Natures Raidiant Loose Powder Foundation is easy to apply and provides good, buildable coverage.  This shade should have been too dark for me and we were expecting it to give me an orange tint, but it perfectly blended in and works perfect for a summer tan shade.  No...
