About Health Warrior

Health Warrior was founded in 2010 by college friends, Dan, Nick and Shane. The former collegiate athletes used to approach food as calories to burn during hours of daily practices. But after entering their professional lives, that carefree approach to nutrition met cold, hard, desk-bound reality. They went from running between meets and games to meetings and day care pick-ups. They eventually learned that what matters is the quality of calories over quantity. Read More

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Cofo, Superfood for Your Coffee

 

 

With Cofo, your daily coffee ritual just got better. You pick your coffee, we give it a healthy superfood boost.

 

 

About this project

 

1-64fcfb2e038083343754328b7bb1e96c_original

 

Every morning, most of us enjoy a daily coffee ritual. We wake up, brew coffee, and drink to kick-start our day. After coffee, the race gun goes off, and we pack in work, family, and adventures.

We created Cofo to give us a boost for our daily and epic adventures. We then tested Cofo with public emergency responders who wanted heightened brain and body endurance during high-intensity situations.

 

2-64218ac84d1249cb7606ba9ecb833b8c_original (1)Cofo Superfood is available in a vegan blend and a paleo blend.

 

The result is Cofo, a superfood boost available in a vegan and a paleo blend that's easy to enjoy in your daily coffee.

To Do Cofo: Just Add to Your Coffee, Stir, Drink, and Enjoy!

Want to learn more about the benefits of Cofo ingredients? Read our Ingredients Matter page on our website.

What does cofo taste like? While it does change the taste of your coffee, most people who try it say, “It tastes like coffee!” First, there’re definitely notes of chocolate from the cacao. Although it’s not a “flavor,” there’s a creaminess to it (from the tocos or MCT). Cofo includes medicinal mushrooms, but there’s no mushroom flavor—if anything, the mushrooms add a rich, savory sort of flavor. Maca is described as tasting like butterscotch, caramel, malt, and/or nutlike. Our collagen is completely odorless and flavorless and fully dissolves in liquid.

The Mint Chocolate R.e.d.d. bar is a deliciously revolutionary convenience food that delivers a nutrient dense, flavorful and slightly caffeinated snack or meal replacement experience that packs the following nutritional punch: 10g protein, equal to 2 – 3 egg whites or a slice of seitan (sans the gluten); 11 all-natural-all giving superfoods; 23 vitamins + minerals; 35mg natural caffeine (muchas gracias, Yerba Maté). R.e.d.d. Mint Chocolate bars are certified gluten free and non-GMO. No ingredients have been included for reasons of cost, simplicity or ease of production. Everything here is here because it’s the best at what it does. We know of no bar at any cost made from higher quality ingredients. Amen. Om. Peace.

Industry News: Superfood popcorn debuts at Summer Fancy Food

 

 

NEW YORK — Movie night is about to get more nutritious. A new ready-to-eat popcorn range from Living Intentions, L.L.C. features probiotics and such superfood ingredients as turmeric, macqui berry, chlorella and maca. The product line debuted at the Summer Fancy Food Show, held June 26-28 in New York.

 

Driven by a mission to bridge the gap between packaged, processed food and fresh, raw food, Living Intentions offers nutrient-dense cereals, nuts, snacks and smoothie blends featuring sprouted ingredients, superfoods or added probiotics. The new product line marks the brand’s foray into the popcorn category.

 
“The concept behind it was to take a functional snack product that everybody likes and make it as nutritionally dense as possible,” said Joshua McHugh, founder and owner of Living Intentions, in an interview with Food Business News. “I’ve always loved popcorn, but it was always hard to find something organic, because there are only two or three brands doing organic popcorn, and on top of that, I want something that’s really good for me, and that’s really not out there. There are companies doing things like popped in coconut oil, and all of that is really cool, but I wanted to take that to the next level.”

 

Activated Superfood Popcorn debuts with four varieties: Cinnamon Twist with maca root and mesquite pod; Tandoori Turmeric with turmeric and Ashwagandha extracts; Salsa Verde with spirulina, chlorella, spinach and kale; and Berry Smoothie, with macqui berry, banana and beet powders, and lacuma fruit.

 

“The goal was to put something out there for everybody,” Mr. McHugh said. “In my mind, Berry Smoothie was going to be that one for moms. It’s purple, and it’s fun. It tastes like berries and banana. Tandoori Turmeric is more sophisticated. It’s got more layers of flavor. It’s a little bit spicy; it’s slightly cheesy with nutritional yeast. Cinnamon Twist is going to be a big one. It’s got maple sugar, cinnamon and maca.”

 

To balance out the bitter greens in the Salsa Verde variety, Mr. McHugh said, “We added garlic and cumin and Southwest seasoning on there. The kale, spinach, chlorella and spirulina came in underneath it.”

 

The product line is expected to hit shelves in September

 

“Popcorn is a super saturated category, but what we’re trying to do is cut through that and say, ‘We are a popcorn item that is going to give you the highest energy and the most nutrition out of anything else out there.’”

 

Still, the company may face an uphill battle in introducing the products to mainstream consumers.

 

“The cool thing about probiotics is most people already know what probiotics are and understand the basic concept that they’re good for them,” Mr. McHugh said. “Certified organic, they already know. Some of the eclectic superfoods may require education, and that’s been the case with all of our products, really. What is macqui berry? What is maca? What is ashwagandha? Those pieces definitely are going to require some education.”

 

LIOldVsNew_Embedded

Living Intentions is in the process of redesigning its packaging to reflect a broader product portfolio under the Activated scheme.

Previously marketed as a raw and sprouted food company, Living Intentions is in the process of redesigning its packaging to reflect a broader product portfolio under the Activated scheme.

“When we say ‘activated,’ it’s food at its highest potential,” Mr. McHugh said. “That was the intention of the new brand and the new packaging... Food at its highest potential could be superfood, could be probiotic, could be sprouted, or likely a combination of a few of those things to make a high-energy, nutrient dense food. So it really opens us up to what category do we feel like we want to go to today? We have a lot of opportunity ahead of us.”

Going forward, the company may add additional snacks, meals and ready-to-drink beverages. Products are sold nationwide and in Canada, Mexico and Australia.

“Last year to this year, we grew 17% to 20%, and the year before that we grew 65%,” Mr. McHugh said. “This year was really us buckling down and focusing on the brand and not really pushing the sales as much because we knew we were about to rebrand and go into a new package, and we wanted to make that transition as smooth as possible.

“2017 is our focus because we’ll have the brand settled and be ready to go. We’ve got the platform so we’re anticipating a minimum of 30% sales growth.”

Product Spotlight: Leap Ready-to-Mix Powders

 

 
Organic, Vegan, and Brimming with Superfoods, Leap Serves Up Smoothie Bowl Perfection in Under a Minute

 
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Smoothie bowls just got a whole lot simpler to make, thanks to Leap's new ready-to-mix smoothie bowl powders. Made entirely of organic whole fruits, vegetables, and plant proteins, Leap makes it easy (and affordable) to prepare a superfood-infused smoothie bowl in under a minute. Each flavor offers an ideal balance of vegan protein, omega fats, fiber, and up to four servings of nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables.

"Smoothie bowls are having a major moment, and why not? They are nutritious, they taste great, and they look beautiful too. The only problem is they can be a massive pain to make. I mean most people just don't have the time it takes to wash, chop, and blend all those ingredients every morning," said Leap Co-Founder and CEO Edward Cannan. "We wanted to simplify the process by creating ready-to-mix smoothie bowl powders that could deliver a nutritionally balanced smoothie bowl base, without all of the hassle."

Working with nutritional experts, Leap developed three great tasting powders designed to optimize health, improve digestion, and detoxify the body. Superfoods like kale, goji berries, and spirulina are either freeze-dried or dehydrated at the peak of ripeness and then carefully crushed into Leap's ready-to-mix powder form. The product contains absolutely no added sugars and no artificial shortcuts.

"There is this terrible misconception that eating organic or healthy need also be expensive, time-consuming, and tasteless. Leap, however, is proof of the contrary," said Cannan. "It is a great solution for anyone serious about improving their health, fitness, and/or energy levels."

Leap can be blended, stirred, or shaken into any yogurt or milk alternative to create a great tasting and highly satisfying smoothie bowl base. After that, individuals need only add their favorite toppings to achieve Insta-worthy smoothie bowl success.

The product is currently available in three flavors: Green Revive, Blue Zeal, and Red Power. Each one is vegan, gluten-free, non-gmo, soy-free, and certified Kosher.

Leap is now available for purchase at its website and Amazon Prime. For more information or to try Leap for free, please visit https://Leapsmoothies.com/.
