Rawxies are an indulgent, nutritious, low calorie heart bar. Great for snacking, pre-workouts and even for kids!
Rawxies can be enjoyed anytime of the day; breakfast, mid-morning snack, or dessert! While Rawxies are not calorically dense enough to be considered a true meal replacement, they could easily accompany a piece of fruit, a small salad or a cup of (coconut) yogurt to make a deliciously healthy and quick meal. With 130 Calories or less, Rawxies cookies were created for healthy snacking on-the-go.
Don't get us wrong, we love nut and date bars, but personally felt like they weren't maintaining satiation for an extended period of time. Creator, Callie England, wanted to bring in a grain that would slow down the digestion process and create a longer feeling of fullness. High in fiber, oats balance the nuts, dates and coconut to create a snack that won't leave you reaching for the kitchen cabinet shortly after enjoying.
Callie created Rawxies with the masses in mind. She understood that oats represented a flavor profile that most people are not only familiar with, but as well, enjoy! So, she utilized such a product as her primary ingredient… After all, who says healthy food can't taste great!? Not us.
What sets Rawxies apart from traditional low/no sugar products?
Rawxies are different from most traditional low carb/low sugar products, because Rawxies do not contain artificial sweeteners. Traditional low sugar products are often overflowing with what is labeled as 'sugar alcohols' - which, are known to produce many unpleasant side effects such as severe bloating and stomach cramping.
Also, artificial sweeteners in general have been linked to anxiety, headaches, skin irritations, chest pains, mood swings, and itchy eyes (just to name a few). Even the newest sweetener on the market, sucralose, contains chlorine, a well-known carcinogen. Chlorine has been used in poisonous gas, disinfectants, pesticides and plastics. Rawxies is committed to providing low sugar snacks that do not poison the human body.
What is Palm Sugar and why is it different than most traditional sugars?
Sugar gets a bad rep - rightfully so. However, not all sugars are created equal. Coconut Palm Sugar is derived from the sweet nectar of the sugar blossoms that grow at the top of the tropical coconut palm tree. Coconut Palm Sugar is naturally low on the Glycemic Index (GI) and is rated as a GI 35. In comparison, honey is GI 55 and Cane Sugar GI 68. Coconut Palm Sugar has been known to deliver a slow release of energy, as opposed to cane sugar which produces drastic 'highs' and 'lows'. It should be noted that while Coconut Palm Sugar is high in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron, that it is not 'raw' and has been heated to 105 degrees.
What is wildcrafted vanilla?
There's a reason very few companies use such a product, because it's extremely expensive! Callie always jokes that if there is a fire, she's grabbing the vanilla and running! Wildcrafted vanilla is the most wonderful and authentic vanilla available. The vanilla orchid is grown on the islands of the South Pacific, where the vanilla "bean" is harvested from the flower by hand. After curing in the sun for days, the vanilla is ground into a fine powder and packaged in a certified organic facility. Ground vanilla is a potent antioxidant!
Why are Rawxies considered a 'pre-digested' food?
Rawxies are considered a pre-digested food, because they are not heated above 105 degrees. Heating food above this point kills its natural enzymes. Enzymes are what our body produces to break down certain foods. However, if the food is 'living', the body does not need to produce enzymes and therefore the food can digest itself. Predigested foods (those that are not heated above 105 degrees) are easily digested by the body and are a great option for anyone suffering from digestive disorders.
