Better than RAW, better than COOKED...
ACTIVATED! REAL ORGANIC WHOLE FOOD LIVING ENERGY BARS
Food with Living Energy is food with its life force spiked. Using our proprietary pre-sprouting process, the nuts & seeds we use are low-heat dried, trapping their optimum energy during the explosive vibrational phase of pre-sprouting. This leaves you with the enhanced goodness of naturally occurring enzymes, fiber and protein.
Ancient Taoists and early cultures discovered that this process significantly improves one's digestion and assimilation of nutrients, minerals and vitamins when consumed. They knew intuitively that they were preserving the Qi. The energy that creates worlds. When you consume Living Energy food, it is absorbed easily compared to dead-calorie food, which gives no enzymes or energy.

~Rick Stoddard, MacLeHose Athlete, Hong Kong, January 2012
"These are the only snacks, basically, that you CAN eat."

It’s a simple concept we’ve all heard before, that beauty comes from within. But it’s true. We can affect our appearance by controlling what goes into our bodies. We are lost in a world of lotions and potions to make us look and feel younger, when all we need to do is go back to nature.
There is so much going on in our everyday lives that we often don’t have the time or energy to plan, prepare and cook our own healthy and nutritious meals. Getting a hotdog off a street vendor is a much easier solution – but it’s only going to slow you down. Your brain requires glucose in return for the work that it does, but this can lead to overindulgence in high-calorie, low-nutrient-dense foods, which are NOT the kind your brain is asking for. Processed foods are not digested easily and can lead to that lunch coma or falling asleep at your desk. But never fear, we’ve got the solution for you.
Our Whole Food Living Energy Bars, Volcanic Pili Nuts, and Saffron-Pink Himalayan salt bring you the best in nutrition, with ultimate convenience. Use the whole food and pre-sprouted energy of our bars to keep you sharp, even in the middle of the afternoon, the vitamin E from our pili nuts to stay beautiful inside and out, and the micro-minerals from our salt to replace those electrolytes after the gym.
Keeping your family happy and healthy is a difficult task, and even if you succeed at that, you’ve still got yourself to take care of. Family meals are probably the best way to make sure that you and your family is getting a healthy meal. Unless you hire a caretaker, preparing meals everyday that are healthy, exciting and enjoyed by the whole family is mission impossible.
SJLO bars are designed to be for the whole family: kid’s lunchboxes, backpacks, sporting events, family picnics, office drawers, or just grab-and-go snacks to keep in the kitchen.
Good prenatal nutrition is key to a strong and healthy baby, so make sure you’ve got plenty of these:
Omega 3s are small enough to transfer from the mother’s blood to the baby through the placenta. Increased consumption of Omega-3s is vital for prenatal development. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is an Omega 3 fatty acid and is the building block for others once we consume it. Flaxseeds have some of the highest ALA content. But pre-sprouted flaxseeds have even higher!
Folic Acid (Vitamin B9)
Folic acid (a.k.a. folate) is extremely important for prenatal development. It is most important in the first 4 weeks of pregnancy. It is needed to build the spine, skull and brain of your child.
An increase in red blood cells and hemoglobin require extra intake of iron. However, for vegans and vegetarians, this may be quite a challenge, but never fear, the red veins found in the Himalayan salt mountains contain natural iron, which is easily assimilated by our bodies.
Most of us have been there, whether its long-term weight gain or a rough weekend, we find ourselves wanting to rid our bodies of all toxins and start afresh. But detoxing is not fun: it usually involves some odd and foul tasting liquids and unpleasant periods of fasting. Therefore, we at SJLO take a whole foods approach to any detox, whether it be for weight-loss, gain or an everyday cleanse.
Whole foods are what nature intended for us to consume: fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds as they are. And remember, the more colorful, the better. However, if you’ve got a proclivity for the junkier food groups, a drastic switch to a raw vegan diet will likely make you crash. Just remember that the easiest way to transition away from a poor diet is by replacing one or two unhealthy things (snack foods are a great start) with something healthy. Many of us eat unhealthily when we have negative feelings, but exercise and a healthy diet will help your body to produce the chemicals that make you happy. So give your body a clean, and keep healthy and happy.
It’s 12am. You still have half a paper to write. You know you’re going to be up all night and you’re hungry, but the only restaurant still open is the pizza place around the corner. What’s a deliriously stressed student to do?
Eating the wrong foods can put stress on your body and on your brain. Getting your calories does not mean that you’re getting your nutrition, but making yourself a salad at 2am in front of your computer isn’t that appealing. Your brain is demanding glucose for all the hard work you’ve been doing, and there are healthy ways to get that! A candy bar is only going to make you crash and burn, so you really need something with a slow release of energy that burns cleanly in your system. At Stephen James Luxury Organics, we create the healthiest snack foods around, but we also know that taste is extremely important and so we have created both sweet and savory bars to cover your cravings for everything from pizza to candy bars to sushi. Our Living Energy Bars have POW!
