Chocolate Halva Petit Four
Chocolate Halva Petit Four

***SEASONAL ITEM, AVAILABLE AS A SPECIAL ORDER. CONTACT CHAYA FOR MORE INFORMATION.***

These scrumptious little morsels will delight your senses one layer at a time. We chose to highlight Chaya’s Chocolate Halva Petit Four for a Valentine’s Day special because it is layer upon layer of love infused indulgence. A sensual confection experience that highlights the exotic flavor of “Halva”, a middle eastern confection combining sesame butter and sugar (no sugar here though. We use only wholesome sweeteners like coconut sugar and honey.), and raw chocolate filled with the happy brain  and heart stimulating chemicals that create the euphoric feeling commonly associated with chocolate consumption (hence the name theobroma cacao – or food of the gods!). We will have these sweet delights available for the entire month of February so you can get your fill and share with your loved ones. 

One order is one petit four.

Fresh Coconut Water
Fresh Coconut Water

You will receive one quart of freshly cracked Thai Young Coconut Water (served in a sterile *quart sized mason jar). This is a semi-sweet, mineral rich and super hydrating liquid that forms in the center of a young coconut.  A true gift and nourishing elixir directly from Mother nature herself.

*We do not currently have the capacity to accept jar deposits and returns. Therefore you are purchasing the mason jar along with your coconut water.

**Prices subject to change with seasonal market cost variabilities.

Please read below for some highlights on the health benefits of young coconut water taken from Dr. Axe’s website or follow this link to read the full article.

“The greatest nutrient health benefits of coconut water comes from drinking the water of the young coconut, not the mature coconut milk, which is generally lower in nutrients.

Coconut water has been consumed for centuries in tropical countries and is believed to treat a variety of health-related ailments. In Sanskrit, coconuts are called “kalpa vriksha” which means “tree which gives all that is necessary for living”.

In certain emergency situations, coconut water has been used for IV hydration due to its high electrolyte content and the fact that it is sterile if used directly from the inside of the coconut. People all over the world enjoy coconut water for its multiple benefits and sweet taste.

The liquid inside the coconut contains approximately 46 calories per cup, 10 grams of natural sugar, with little protein and it is fat free! It contains multiple vitamins, minerals, and phytochemcials that are ideal for human health. (1)

The primary nutrient in coconut water is potassium.  It contains approximately 600 mg (12% DV) making it a high electrolyte beverage. Coconut water also contains a small amount of sodium, about 40mg and up to 10% of your daily calcium and magnesium needs. (2)

Electrolytes are critical to maintain blood volume, heart health, and well as to prevent dehydration. Maintaining electrolyte levels can help reduce fatigue, stress, and help maintain muscle relaxation.”

Sprouted Buckwheat Crackers
Sprouted Buckwheat Crackers

These crisp, savory and herbaceous crackers are raw, gluten free and sturdy enough to hold plentiful layers of spreads and toppings. They are an excellent replacement for traditional crackers, or flat breads. We love piling them high with toppings and eating them like a pizza. Some favorite combinations include; sun dried tomato sauce covered with a layer of our Macadamia Ricotta and piled high with diced tomatoes, olives, mushrooms, and zucchini noodles. Another favorite is a layer of fresh guacamole, topped with sliced tomatoes, pan fried shiitake (or other) mushrooms, thin sliced red onions, a drizzle of some cashew cream and finished with some sprouts (see gallery image for a depiction of this one). Finally, The Sprouted Buckwheat Crackers are a perfect match for Chaya’s Sprouted Sunflower Hummus, either by itself or topped with a traditional “Israeli Salad” of diced tomatoes and cucumbers. 

* 4 large crackers per serving.
