Dairy Free Living: Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

Dairy Free, Lifestyle

Something that I really, really, really, really miss about eating dairy is indulging in spoonfuls of Nutella chocolate spread. When cowboyfriend and I found ourselves at a grocery store a town or two over we found something magical…no, something dare I say it, downright divine. Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter spread fulfilled all of my needs when it comes to taste, consistency and allergens. I was so excited after eating it I felt like I needed to tell you guys and alas, a new vein of the blog is born. I thought maybe y’all would appreciate reviews of dairy free products that you may have been wondering about. So the first installment is a rich and flavorful one.

The wholesome company was created by 20 something Justin in his kitchen, he was on a


mission to create delicious and nutritious nut butter from natural ingredients that would substantially energize anyone for a day of vigorous activity. He began selling his nut butters at the local farmer’s markets in Colorado and slowly his business grew. As he releases more interesting and unique flavors to the line like maple almond butter we have become blessed with this gloriously delicious spread: Chocolate Hazelnut.

First of all, it is totally recommended that you mix the contents before eating. I was a little too excited to eat my little sample package and maybe forgot to mix it up before squeezing it directly into mouth. Natural things separate, it’s only natural. So give it a little mix and it will be just what the doctor ordered. The flavor is chocolatey, most definitely chocolatey. But it also has this nice, well rounded nutty quality that just puts a microphone to the all natural ingredients. Even better, this butter has 50% less sugar content than other leading chocolatey spreads. A major rule that we live by in this house is the ingredients list, I stay away from feeding Cowbae things with any chemical ingredients and refrain from sugars and their tricky substitutes where I can.

Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Spread includes Dry Roasted Hazelnuts, Dry Roasted Almonds, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Cocoa, Organic Cocoa Butter, Palm Oil, Vanilla Powder, Sea Salt. That’s it.

The final verdict is that I absolutely am in love with this nut butter, also every time I have said nut butter ever I giggle inside because… come on. Buy anyways aside from this being an amazingly delicious dairy free option, Justin’s is a giving company. They create wholesome, nutritious products and also give back to the community. Specifically, they focus on donating their time and efforts on the reservation in attempts to improve the quality of live for Native Americans. I think anyone and everyone that loves nutella or just things that taste good should try this new, fabulous product.


Bohemian Island: The Pants that Give Back


I recently received my first pair of Bohemian Island harem pants and I’m truly in love. They are lightweight and a really beautiful Uthitta Hasta Pandanghasanapattern which makes them day or night time pants. My favorite part about them is that they aren’t skin tight but I can still practice all of my yoga wearing them! Seriously, go from Utthita Hasta Padanghasana to Narajanasana without even a rip of the crotch. 

These fabulous yoga pants are 100% cotton, you can barely feel that you’re wearing them. They are simply but efficiently designed with a pocket on the right side perfect for your cell phone or car keys. There are countless adorable patterns, I went with the psychedelic paisley … obviously :D. Enjoy anything from lazy days around the house to ashtanga at the studio in the Bohemian Island anytime Thai harem pants.

Lastly, and probably one of my most favorite reasons to purchase these amazing pants: they donate to the Soi Dog Foundation of Thailand. That’s correct my friends, 10% of all proceeds from sales at Bohemian Island go directly to the foundation to help vaccinate and care for over 30,000 stray dogs of Thailand. Yep, you heard me right, they not only manufacture fantastically comfortable harem pants but they help our little puppy friends who have fallen on unfortunate times. I am a huge fan of their products and a very satisfied customer. Check out their site to scan through the beautiful prints from the new season.
