5 cool new products we love!

Our buyers are always on the look out for great new items to add to our selection, and as a result we get in dozens of new products every month! Here are some recent highlights! Have suggestions on items you’d like to see on our shelves? We’d love to hear from you! Email us at info at perelandranatural dot com.

Punk Rawk Labs Nacho Cheese

Punk Rawk Lab’s Vegan Nacho Nutmilk Cheese will truly blow your mind. Vegans and non-vegans alike love this tangy, creamy spread because it’s fermented like real cheese and retains that savory, umami taste. This is the newest addition to their selection of nutmilk cheeses, and with just a little bit of heat from jalapenos it will help you make the best nachos you’ve ever had! Of course, it is very creamy and spreadable and goes great on crackers or on bread for a spicy grilled cheese, too. And, because it’s made from cashews, it’s free of cholesterol and saturated fats! You can’t say that about regular nacho cheese!

Steaz Organic Iced Green Tea with Coconut Water

While it’s not really the best time of the year for iced beverages, what with the “polar vortex” and all, Steaz had the brilliant idea to combine two of our favorite beverages – organic green tea and coconut water! Coconut water is rich in hydrating magnesium and potassium, and it’s natural sweetness and mild coconut flavor is a match made in heaven with anti-oxidant rich green tea. It’s super refreshing and is a great post-workout beverage. It’s delicious warmed up, too!

Yossi’s Vegan Cake

Yossi’s Vegan Cakes are made locally in New York City by hand and come in amazing flavors like organic chocolate chip, coconut chocolate chip, banana walnut and pumpkin spice. They’re moist, delicious and just the right amount of cake when you want a little something sweet. They’re made with organic ingredients, and like the name says, they’re free of animal products, too!

The Vegg Vegan Egg Substitute

This is one of the most interesting products we’ve ever seen here at Perelandra, and we’ve seen a lot of them over the years! The Vegg is a simple blend of fortified nutritional yeast, sodium alginate (a seaweed derived thickener) and black salt. The black salt gives it an authentic eggy flavor that will give you the eggy taste you crave with none of the cholesterol. Our supplement buyer, Meredith, and long time vegan says: “It tasted so incredibly authentic that it was frightening! I poured it over a tofu scramble and my husband thought I was making real eggs!” If you like eggs but don’t want to eat them regularly for health or ethical reasons, give The Vegg a try. It’s really neat!

Deep Steep Dry Oil Body Spray

This is the remedy you’ve been looking for to repair your winter parched skin! This dry oil spray is made of pure plant oils, like coconut, pomegranate and apricot kernel oils, but magically absorbs into your skin without leaving an oily film. You can get dressed immediately after you apply it with no worry of the oil staining, unlike traditional body oils. They come in great scents (made from natural sources- no artificial fragrances here) like lavender chamomile, honeydew spearmint, bergamot grapefruit and rosemary mint.

A Very Special Turkey for your Thanksgiving Table!

Certified Organic, Free-Range, Locally Pasture-Raised Turkeys from Hidden Camp Farm
What’s so different about this year’s turkeys?
We have always offered free-range, certified organic turkey at Perelandra for Thanksgiving, so what’s so special about our turkeys this year? Well…..everything! 
Our Own Flock
This year, we purchased our own flock of young turkeys early in the summer of 2013, and placed them in the care of the King family at Hidden Camp Farm.  This not only allows us control of the quality, quantity, and size of turkeys available to our customers, it also allows for the highest level of transparency between farm, grocer, and customer!
Locally & Ethically Raised
Our flock is being raised in Canajoharie, NY, just 205 miles north of our store on a family farm we know and trust.  Our birds are fed only certified organic feed and fresh water, and allowed plenty of time outdoors to exercise and forage in the pasture. 
Supports Sustainability 
By working directly with a small farm, we cut down the use of fossil fuels to ship the turkey to a distribution center, the energy used to store them there, and the packaging products used in shipping them.   
Placing an Order

To reserve one of these special birds, we require a deposit of $30 per turkey from 8-15 lbs., and $60 for each bird 16 lbs. and over.  We are offering turkeys which range in size from around 8 lbs. to over 25 lbs. We do our best to get everyone their exact size preferences, but can’t guarantee exact weights.  
In Person: Just stop by our Vitamin counter anytime until November 20th, and let them know you’d like to order a turkey.  They’ll set you up with an order form, and you can settle up at our newly renovated checkout. 
By Phone: Give a call at 718-855-6068. Deposit taken by credit card.  
 Online: Point  your browser at www.perelandranatural.com.  Click the shop tab and you will be directed to our online shopping portal. At the top of the page, there’s a turkey deposit tab. Click the tab, add the appropriate size range deposit to your cart, and checkout. It’s that easy! Don’t forget, we can deliver your turkey anywhere in Brooklyn for just $5.99 if purchased online!

Our Certified Organic, Locally Pasture-Raised Turkeys are $4.99 per pound, and will arrive on Thursday Nov. 21st. After turkeys arrive, whatever birds have not been reserved will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.   We have a limited number of these amazing turkeys, and highly recommend reserving one!

July’s New Products

We’re constantly searching for new, hard-to-find products to add to the diverse inventory of the store. Whether it’s a new local company like Brooklyn-based Common Good which is now supplying our bulk cleansers and soaps, or just a new-to-us product we’ve recently learned about, we are always looking for the highest quality products to bring to our customers. Here are some recent additions to our ever-growing inventory:

Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics – not only are these cosmetics naturally made and cruelty-free, but they also contain beneficial properties to help your skin! Every product in the line is multi-functional and easy to use, like the mineral powder which is a foundation, powder, concealer, and sunscreen all in one. It’s also non-comedogenic and most products are oil-free. Jane Iredale’s line is only sold in places with licensed cosmotologists on staff, and now that we have our comsmotologist Eden at the store, we are excited to be able to carry this beautiful line.

Andrew & Everett 100% Real Grated Parmesan Cheese – All of Andrew & Everett’s premium natural cheeses are hormone free and made with antibiotic free milk. They partner with independent, small scale dairy farms to ensure the highest quality. The parmesan comes in a shaker for easy use, just like the Kraft cheese we had when we were young, but now you can eat it in good conscience. 

Ella’s Kitchen Baby Brekkie – organic baby breakfast pouches. Not only are these breakfast pouches quick and easy for families on the go, but they’re healthy and delicious, too! They’re made from a blend of organic fruit purée, yogurt, and wholegrain rice to create a balanced meal to start your kid’s day or give a natural burst of energy at any time throughout the day. 

Bob’s Red Mill A leader in the highest quality whole grain products, Bob’s Red Mill has been milling, testing, packaging, and distributing their cereals, mixes, flours, oats, granolas, and grains since 1978 (just two years after Perelandra opened!). Due to overwhelming customer requests, we have added two more products to the many we already carry: 

Gluten-Free Bread Mix – this easy mix can be made by hand or in a bread maker, and can even be made dairy-free. It makes loaf bread and is a great alternative for those who don’t eat gluten but still love the smell and taste of freshly baked bread. This is just one of the 50+ gluten free products made by Bob’s Red Mill. 

Creamy Wheat Farina Cereal – this delicious, quick-cooking hot cereal will “fill you up and keep you going throughout the morning,” according to Bob’s Red Mill. Great for adults, kids, and infants alike. 

Perelandra Juice Bar – Raspberry Beret Smoothie – made with organic raspberries, organic blueberries, organic lime, organic banana and coconut water. Cool down with a fresh, organic smoothie made fresh to order. This one is only available for a limited time, so get it while you can! 

New products at Perelandra – September!

We get in lots of great new products every month- check out what is new at Perelandra this month!

*Slow Juicer
We are all so excited about the Hurom Slow Juicer! It is a revolutionary juicer! While it is called a ‘slow juicer’, it actually produces juice much faster and yields a much drier pulp than most juicers. The method of extraction is pressing and masticating- this crushes and presses the food, releasing a more nutrient rich juice than traditional juicers produce. Hurom provides independent laboratory results that show that juice produced by the Slow Juicer contains 42.7% more Vitamin C, 60.7% more Vitamin A and 35% more juice than a high speed traditional juicer! Watch a video about how it works here.

Justin’s Nut Butters
*Maple Almond Butter, Honey Almond Butter, Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
Justin’s makes exceptional nut butters! The Chocolate Hazelnut tastes like dessert, except you’ll notice that it is low in sugar, high in protein and fiber and vegan… unlike most desserts!! You will want to eat these off a spoon.

Brooklyn Brine
*Maple Bourbon Bread and Butter Pickles
Brooklyn Brine has done it again with with their maple bourbon bread and butter pickles. They are delicious and tangy, with just the right amount of sweetness. When our staff tried them, we heard again and again “I don’t usually like bread and butter pickles, but these are delicious!” Give them a try. You’ll be glad you did!

Near East
*Quinoa Blends
Near East’s new blends contain both quinoa and brown rice and are well seasoned with herbs and spices to make a great pilaf. They are also ready to eat in less than 15 minutes! Now you can reap the nutritional benefits of Quinoa (Fiber! Calcium! A complete plant protein!) in less time than you thought possible!

Hot Bread Kitchen
*Organic Corn Tortillas- Blue Corn, White Corn and Yellow Corn varieties
We are so excited to be carrying Hot Bread Kitchen products! Hot Bread Kitchen is NOT your average bakery- it is a non-profit social enterprise that creates better lives for low income women and their families by paying women while they develop the skills necessary to gain management track positions in food manufacturing. They use only certified organic corn and source locally grown ingredients whenever possible- and they are SO GOOD! They will make your next taco something special!

Dr. Lucy’s

August’s New Products & News!

After several weeks of unbearably hot weather, am I the only one who has started dreaming about the cool fall air? Despite myself (and I believe many others!) not wanting to leave our air conditioned apartments on hot summer days, the great thing about the weather in New York this time of the year is that it allows us to have an abundance of beautiful, organic produce that has been locally grown (from the Fingerlakes region in upstate New York) all summer long. At this very moment we’ve got several types of leafy greens, a variety of squash, dragon tongue beans, tomatoes, garlic scapes, purple bell peppers, and 6 packaged salad greens from Remembrance Farms to name a few! Follow us on twitter to see what locally grown produce we’ve got, we update it frequently with a list of what is local in our department that day.

Kitchen & Juice Bar
Our chefs have created a fantastic new sandwich! On Tuesdays come in to try our Chile-Tempeh Torta with avocado and jalapeno aioli. Imagine spicy, chili rubbed tempeh with creamy avocado & jalapeno aioli, refried beans, cucumber and cilantro on an organic multigrain baguette, baked fresh that morning! It is truly awesome.

New Products!
Third St. Organic Chai Concentrates
-Made from organically grown, fairly traded ingredients, this ‘micro-brewed’ chai concentrate makes a mean chai latte! It’s great iced or hot, mixed with your favorite milk or non-dairy milk alternative, though I am partial to mixing the Honey Vanilla variety with So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk… We’ve got three flavors- Spicy Ginger, Honey Vanilla and a Sugar-free variety that is sweetened only with Stevia!

Edward & Sons Rice Snax
-These vegan, gluten-free crackers are made from rice and are perfect for dipping. They are really crunchy and hold up well in thick dips like hummus and babaganoosh. Look for four flavors- Onion & Garlic, Bar-B-Que, Lightly Salted and Salt & Vinegar, and you can’t beat the $1.99 price!

Hail Merry Nuts
-Hail Merry’s Vanilla-Maple Almonds are one of the most delicious things that I have eaten in a long time! Trust me when I say that one bag is not enough of these raw almonds, gently sweetened with vanilla-infused maple sugar. Other varieties include Orange-Rosemary Pecans, Lemon-Thyme Pecans, and Chimayo Chile Pecans, all of which are delicious, savory snack options that would be great in any recipe calling for Pecans. The flavors are delicate and not overwhelming, and add something special to a plain old pecan.

Cheeky Monkey Peanut Butter Puffs
-Think Cheese Puffs, but with Peanut Butter! And they’re vegan and gluten-free… and you will want to eat the whole bag in one sitting! Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with snack size packages in addition to the regular size!

Dado Sens Facial Care
-All the way from Germany, brought to you by the manufacturers of Anne Marie Borlind, comes Dado Sens facial and body care products. Dado Sens products are made for people that have sensitive or irritated skin conditions but still want natural, gentle yet effective, luxurious skin care. Dado sens has 4 different facial care lines: Extroderm for extremely dry or psoriasis related skin conditions, Probalance for delicate skin that tends toward allergic reactions and irritation, Purderm for acne prone conditions and Regeneration E for sensitive, allergy prone mature skin types. Come in on August 9th from 11:30-2:30 to meet with a representative from the company and learn more about this great product line and try some samples of the products that are right for you!

El Goo Ummy pacifiers
-These European pacifiers are made from all natural pure liquid rubber and are entirely non-toxic. Made with no chemical softeners and BPA-free, they come in round, orthodontic or elongated varieties. Find them next to the baby foods!

Navitas Naturals Stevia
-Pure, organic, raw stevia powder is perfect for adding sweetness to your favorite foods without the harsh effects of traditional sugars. Navita’s Stevia is in it’s traditional, unprocessed herbal form and it is 300 times sweeter than sugar, so a little goes a long way!

Tea Forte Organic Wild Berry Hibiscus Tea
-Recent research has shown that drinking three cups of hibiscus tea everyday can help to lower elevated blood pressure levels. Tea Forte’s hibiscus is combined with organic wildberry flavor, making this tea good AND good for you! It is great hot or iced.
