nutpods is a deliciously wholesome, dairy-free creamer made from heart healthy almonds and MCT-rich coconuts with a rich and creamy balanced taste.

We believe that there should be an alternative option for the discerning and informed dairy-free coffee creamer user. Unfortunately, most traditional non-dairy and even natural dairy-free coffee creamers can contain many undesirable and artificial ingredients.  Natural creamers can be thin and watery; not rich and creamy. Unlike the existing options, nutpods is free from the following so you can be free to indulge:
-Soy
-Sodium Caseinate (a milk protein)
-Carrageenan
-Artificial flavors, colors and preservatives
-Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils

 For a list of ingredients, please click on the photo of each flavor.

 

Keep Calm and ENJOY NUTPODS Poster

We did it!

We started our little company with a Kickstarter campaign in October 2013 (www.kickstarter.com Project Name: nutpods) to bring our much anticipated products to the commercial market. Our goal was to raise $30K to release our first delectable flavor, Unsweetened Original. Well, thanks to the generosity of 510 backers, WE DID IT! We were able to actually surpass our goal by $32,164!  The money raised will go towards converting Madeline's kitchen formula into a full-blown commercial formulation.  Funds will also be used on packaging, production and distribution costs.

Thanks to you, our supporters, we will soon be able to transform nutpods into a bona fide commercial production and make our wholesome and deliciously dairy-free creamy pods available to health-conscious coffee and tea lovers everywhere.

Thank you for your support in giving us the privilege to finally bring a more natural and wholesome option to the market!

Moderate Discipline: The key to making it stick.

I follow a lot of bloggers because I like to cook and I like to eat. Mouth-watering photos of delicious food work on me like a charm. My personal favorite two bloggers are Lindsay Nixon from Happy Herbivore and Juli Bauer from PaleoMG.

                                                                             

I gravitate towards these two because they understand that if you follow a diet or a new lifestyle to a T, it's very difficult to make it sustainable in the long run. How many of you have started a diet, stayed strong in the beginning and then, life got in the way? Maybe a trip took you out of your kitchen where you could prepare your own meals, or a birthday celebration marred your gluten-free plans. Lindsay often talks about "Progress, not Perfection."   Juli Bauer herself practices an 80/20 Paleo lifestyle where she eats 80% Paleo and 20% off. With my own family, we don't buy dairy products except for butter and ghee. But if my daughter Emily is at a birthday party and they serve the cake a la mode with a scoop of ice cream, I'm not going to lunge across the room. I think it's very hard to commit to a new lifestyle and not falter a few times. Setting ourselves up for a big change in how we eat without leaving some room for flexibility (like the 20% or a cheat day) is a recipe for failure.

I'm not interested in shaming myself if I falter (usually on a business trip) any more than I'm interested in Emily's occasional ice cream or my husband Geoff's half & half when he's out of nutpods. More than wanting to lose the perpetual 10lbs, I am much more interested in keeping our bodies strong and able, our arteries open and clear and our taste buds happy with a wide array of delicious tasting, fiber-rich, nutritious food.  My arthritic knees thank me for keeping my weight at a healthy level and I have successfully kept away the Type II Diabetes and high blood pressure that run in my family. Geoff has a family history of high cholesterol and I want his heart beating freely through unclogged arteries for a long long time next to me.

These two bloggers really know how to have a healthy perspective, not only on how they eat but also on how life really works.
