Food Product Review

Kevala Review

The other day I received a package in the mail from Kevala which is a company based in the United States that makes whole organic foods. Gerardo was kind enough to send me a very generous sample kit which I opened like a child on Christmas. In the package I got a jar of Tahini, Coconut oil, Cashew butter, and a bag of raw Cacao Powder.

IMG_0063At Kevala, their products are made with only one ingredient. There is no sugar, salt, oils or chemicals added or used in the production process.  “Your health is our number one priority and we will continue to develop new and innovative products that serve as basic ingredients in a healthy diet. Most of our products are made in the US but, since our passion is to offer genuine pure ingredients, we sometimes need to go in search of them in other countries as they are not always available at home. Our Organic Raw Honey is harvested in the tropical forest of Oaxaca, where we make sure that the bee habitat is respected and protected. Our Organic Agave Nectar comes from Mexico’s Blue Agave fields. Our Organic Olive Oil is truly Mediterranean, picked and cold pressed following ancient Tunisian traditions. Wherever the source may be, more than 90% of our products are bottled in the US always complying with both the FDA and USDA’s high quality standards.”

Product 1: Coconut Oil

The first thing I used, and by far the most common product was the coconut oil. If you haven’t tried it before, I highly recommend you do. Coconut oil has many benefits that include skin care, stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, weight loss, boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. Not only that but it relieves kidney problems, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, and cancer.

It’s great for cooking and baking, and is also a great substitute for butter and other oils. I used it in quinoa, on the frying pan to make tofu, on my skillet making pancakes, and even used it to make vegan chocolate sauce.

IMG_0926Product 2: Raw Cacao Powder

The second thing I used was the cacao powder. It’s raw, vegan and gluten free. Cacao powder is a great anti-oxidant that you can add to smoothies, cookies, brownies, oatmeal etc. Just 1-2 tsp. can have amazing benefits for you. It keeps all of it’s nutrients when used raw so I like to add it to smoothies and oatmeal the best. Who would have thought chocolate could be so good?

IMG_0388Product 3: Cashew Butter

I’ve never tried cashew butter before, but I LOVE cashews and I LOVE peanut butter, so I assumed I would love this as well. Sure enough, I did. It’s creamy, delicious, has a great texture, and tastes just like cashews.

Not only do cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, but approximately 82% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus about 66% of this unsaturated fatty acid content are heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

IMG_0390You can use cashew butter in just about anything. It gives a great flavour and texture if you add it to baking, but I also enjoyed adding a blob on top of my morning oatmeal.

2014-04-26 004 2014-04-26 001I decided to combine two of the products and create a Chocolate Cashew Smoothie. I simply put 2 frozen bananas in my blender and added a couple of dates, 2 tsp. of cashew butter, 2 tsp. of cacao powder, 2 strawberries, some almond milk and water, and it tasted just like a chocolate milkshake!

IMG_0392Product 4: Tahini

The final product I tried was the Tahini. Tahini is a ground sesame seed paste, similar to peanut butter. It is a creamy, oily, and smooth butter rich in calcium. It’s also rich in minerals such as phosphorus, lecithin, magnesium, potassium, iron and helps to promote healthy skin growth. You can use it on vegetables, pasta, salad, stir fry, and so much more. You can drizzle it onto meals, or use it in cooking. It’s a great substitute for peanut butter if you are allergic because it has a similar texture.

It’s also awesome for making homemade hummus. Mmmm yes, hummus; the perfect vegan/vegetarian dip. All you do is drain and rinse your chickpeas and combine it together in a food processor with tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, salt and water.

IMG_1075IMG_1101Overall I absolutely LOVED the products that Kevala sent me. Not only were the products great, but the service was amazingly fast – I’m talking 2 days fast, and I’m in Canada. The jars were a great size and the bag of Cacao is enormous! These products will definitely last me a long time – well, that is unless I use them every single day because they’re so good.

    though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know
    what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    I think what you said made a great deal of sense.
    However, consider this, what if you composed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your content is not solid., however suppose you added something to maybe grab people’s attention? I mean Kevala
    Review | The Colourful Kitchen is kinda plain. You could peek
    at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create news titles to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve
    written. In my opinion, it would bring your blog
    a little livelier.
