Garden of Life's Raw Organic Protein
Protein is an essential macronutrient, helping with muscle building and repair, and the regulator of enzymes and hormones. A protein powder is a crucial Everyday Essential, because it's a quick and easy way to ensure you're getting a good dose or protein and more. Unleash the nutritive power of living grains and seeds with Garden of Life RAW Organic Protein—a certified organic, RAW, vegan protein powder with a scrumptious taste.

But Garden of Life’s Certified Organic plant proteins are different—always gently produced at low temperatures, without any added fillers or carriers, preserving their complete amino acid integrity and whole-food.
Beking's Poultry Farm Roam-Free Eggs
Eggs are a nutritious and tasty way to get a big dose of high quality protein. In fact, they are a great source of "complete" proteins, as they contain all nine amino acids, which cannot be synthesized naturally in the body, and therefore must be obtained from the diet. They're absolutely an Everyday Essential, but it can be hard to find an ethical and local producer of eggs. Beking's Poultry Farm is located under 100km from all of our Kardish locations, and we receive our eggs fresh, straight from their farm. Beking's Poutry Farm eggs are sourced from roam-free hens that are given no hormones, antibiotics or animal bi-products in their feed. Their farmers manage all stages of egg development, from hen to table, so that their product is the freshest, safest, and most humane option.
