"Frontier Coop" Review & Giveaway

*Giveaway Closed*

When I started my "Spring Into Health" blog event, I was really hoping for the opportunity to feature Frontier Coop great site and products! This is the ultimate "health" company and center piece for my "Spring Into Health" blog event, since they sell natural, organic products and share so much information! So you can only imagine my excitement when I was able to feature them and review some of their Wonderful products! Before I go any further, I have to say I give them 5 stars and you really have to try their products!!!!!!

It was not to hard for me to decide what products I wanted to try, since I have been eyeing them for a while and really thought they would be great for the review/giveaway, but I was very surprised when I opened my packages from Frontier Coop and found such great quality products, sealed very well for long storage, and they were all green products! Yes, literally green! How Cool is that! I had picked healthy and green products!

Wondering what I picked?
Stevia Powder,
Barley Grass,
Pumpkin Seeds!

Here are the descriptions of them from Frontier Coop:

Stevia Description:
"Stevia, also known as sweetleaf or sugarleaf, is a member of the sunflower family and native to South and Central America. It is 300 times as sweet as sugar and widely utilized as a sugar substitute."

Pumpkin Seeds Description from Frontier Coop:
"One of the most nutritious and flavorful seeds around, pumpkin seeds are delicious right out of the bag-- or added to trail mix, sprinkled on cereal, and used in baked goods. Also excellent dry-roasted, with tamari, or salt and spices."

Barley Grass Description from Frontier Coop:
"Barley Grass is a whole food loaded with essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber and many more nutrients your body needs every day. A wonderful way to ensure you're getting enough dark leafy greens in your diet."

I am really excited to have these products in my kitchen and look forward to all the ways I can use them! I posted a bunch of recipes and links for pumpkin seeds and stevia the other day, while going thru recipes to try out! You can find that post HERE! Today I put some pumpkin seeds in my homemade granola! Yum!

Growing up, my mom was introduced to barley grass from her nutritionist. My mom was in terrible health and she started drinking some barley grass powder with a protein powder in cranberry juice! I remember it well because it helped her So much and us children loved how it tasted and would always try to sneak a drink! =)
We also use to put barley grass powder on a wet toothbrush and brush our teeth with the barley grass.

Since I started learning about herbs and using herbs to make our own formulas, I have slowly been building up a supply of dried herbs. Frontier Coop sells a huge selection of herbs! From the popular herbs like calendula, to herbs like Partridge Berry!
Frontier Coop has a great selection of recipes! You really should bookmark the recipes and try them!
The customer service at Frontier Coop is really great! I was very impressed with that too!
As if Frontier Coop was not great enough by itself, their are actually three great companies!
Simply Organic Foods sells gluten free baking mixes, spices, gravies & sauces, salad dressings, etc. I would love to try their Chai Spice Scone Mix, Classic Caesar Dressing, and the Grinder Top Spices!
And Aura Cacia sells aromatherapy products!

To buy their products, visit Frontier Coop online.
