Food Spotlight: Dastony Brazil Nut Butter


Dastony uses an ancient method known as stone-grinding in the production of its products. Originally used for turning olives into luscious and delicious olive oil, stone-grinding applies pressure with powerful, perfectly smooth granite wheels. Although "old world" in its approach, it is revolutionary in terms of preserving nutrients and flavor. This natural preservation is accomplished by maintaing a consistently low temperature throughout the entire process. Another unmatched result of stone-grinding is a silky smooth texture and mouth feel that is truly beyond words.

Only the finest selection of raw and organic ingredients are used in our Dastony Stone-Ground Nut and Seed Butters. Every batch is handcrafted and meticulously cared for during a process which takes 24-48 hours. The time and attention seems excessive but is well worth the results. A gourmet and silky smooth nut/seed butter that still maintains all of its nutritional integrity is something we at Dastony take great pride in.

About the Company
I have always believed that there is a connection between what we eat and how we feel.

Everyone wants to feel their best, and when I decided to remove refined sugar from my family's diet 32 years ago, I began creating recipes that were made with honey and brown rice syrup instead. Children know what they like, and my sons were my very first taste-testers. As I fine-tuned the recipes my boys' friends took notice, and soon I had the most popular yard in the neighborhood! I was like the mom with Kool-Aid(tm) in the TV commercial. Read More

Philanthropist, mom, wife, foodie, five foot 10 inches, barefoot, recreational runner, yoga lover, camping enthusiast, seeker of laughter, friend

I love being an entrepreneur. I’m a realistic dreamer– I dream big and believe there’s a way to make it a reality. I never take “no” for an absolute answer because I’ve worked in sales for more than 15 years and have heard lots of “nos” before the desired “yes.” I do take calculated risks by following my intuition. I have an innate obsession for living life to the fullest and trying to make a difference in the world. Lucky for me, I married someone with my same passion and traits and this is why my husband and I started Project Left Behind. Read More

Food Review: Justin’s Maple Almond Butter



People always ask me, what’s your favorite flavor? And I think they expect me to give some P.C. answer that I love them all the same, but I don’t because that would be stupid. Nuts can’t read, so whose feelings am I going to hurt? You’re holding what I consider to be the most perfect tasting nut butter on the planet, and I’m not afraid to say it.

Artisana™ Organic Super Food Goji Berry & Milk Thistle, is a cashew butter based spread, available in a convenient .5oz squeeze pack.

A powerful combination of two ancient fruits.

GOJI are dried, shriveled red berries that look like red raisins. Goji berries contain high levels of vitamins and are rich in antioxidants, particularly carotenoids such as beta carotene and zeaxanthin. These berries contain essential fatty acids which are essential for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system.

MILK THISTLE is a plant that has a long history of use as a folk remedy for liver and gallbladder disorders. The active ingredient, the one that protects the liver, is known as silymarin. Silymarin is actually a group of flavanoids -silibinin, silidianin, and silicristin, which are thought to help repair liver cells damaged by alcohol and other toxic substances and is a strong antioxidant.

Ingredients: Raw organic cashew butter, raw organic almond oil, raw organic goji berry powder, raw organic agave, raw organic milk thistle, raw organic vanilla powder
