Recipe of the Month: Crispy Plantain Chips
If you’re a fan of our yummy crispy banana chips, you’ll probably love this savoury snack. Plantains are in the same family as bananas (they look like large bananas) and are rich in fibre, potassium, and vitamins A and C. Check out the simple recipe here on our blog!
Did you know that approximately 70% of your immune system is located in your gut? Digestive health is paramount to overall health and immunity, and a great
way to support your gut naturally is to add fermented foods to your diet. Some popular examples are sauerkraut, lacto-fermented vegetables, kimchi, miso, yogurt, and tempeh. These foods are full of friendly bacteria that help keep you healthy. Click here to check out a fun video on good/bad bacteria!

GRYPHON Bars Official Launch
We are super excited to have teamed up with the University of Guelph’s Athletic Department to officially launch the U-RAAW! Gryphon Bar this week. Gryphon Bars support the University of Guelph’s Athletic Department and provide students and athletes with nutritious, preservative-free, convenient snacks. Bars have snazzy new custom Gryphon packaging and can be found at the UoG Athletic Centre. Go Gryphons!
We’re excited to be able to give back a little. This month, we began working with www.pursu.it, an organization that helps sponsor young Canadian athletes who are training for the Olympic games.
We just began the development of custom nutrition bars for two incredible Canadian athletes, Jen Cotten and Caroline Ehrhardt. These bars will be for sale at our online store soon, with a percentage of proceeds going directly to the athletes to support them.
How sponsorship works in addition to the bars:
URAAW will fund each athlete the equivalent of 1% off their transaction fees, plus they will get 2% in URAAW product. For example, if the athlete raises $10,000 on Pursu.it, URAAW will donate $100 toward their campaign transaction fees as well as $200 worth of product.
