Many of us are aware of the long leaf green known as kale. One cup of raw kale has a great nutrient profile, and also contains a healthy dose of Vitamin K. This little known vitamin is reported to be beneficial for use against arterial calcification, and even dementia, along with so many benefits beyond the scope of this article.
Becky dehydrates her kale into chips herself, not taking temperatures over 115°F to retain maximum nutrients and enzymes. She blends them with nuts, seeds, and spices for a flavour burst. Available in Original, Spicy, and Nut-Free for $5.95.
Other raw snack foods offered include crackers, dulse, and onion chips.
Are you looking for a great pudding that has a rich and creamy texture, and won't spike insulin? Good-To-Go puddings are made with cashew. The nut protein makes these a very satisfying treat that won't spike insulin and will sustain you for a long time. Many are sprinkled with cacao nibs, the actual cacao bean just broken into bits and sometimes roasted. These add fibre and a host of nutrients.
Flavours include chocolate, chocolate chip/mint, Vanilla, Vanilla Chip, and Maple Pumpkin Pie. $4.00 for a good serving size of 4.0 oz. Thank you Becky for sample of Chocolate Chip Mint! The mint tastes very fresh, almost like a Moroccan mint tea.
Becky also bakes squares and bars (gluten-free, no-sugar-added), cookies, and pies/cakes. Some of these have low amounts of raw sugar, or sometimes maple syrup. The lemon bars are amazing, tart and rich and satisfying.
A vegan line of dairy-free chocolates are available in more than 10 flavours; the most popular are mint, almond butter cup, and Fruit'N'Nut. You will also find raw sprouts and wheat grass at G2G.

Currently Carrot, Apple, and Orange juices are on the menu. Each have many benefits, but perhaps one of the most important benefits is from the beta-carotene/vitamin A in raw carrot juice. This nutrient helps prevent the onset of heart disease, and stroke. And we all know it's great for eyesight!
