the glow issue.

Introducing the Glow Issue. You know that feeling during the summer after you spend a long day outdoors and you come inside feeling glowy and refreshed? This summer’s issue of the Purely Magazine is all about capturing the feeling of glowy bliss through nutrient-rich recipes, superfoods and some of my favorite warm weather essentials for added energy and beauty benefits. Being that I spend a lot of time traveling, I wanted to create an easy on-the-go snack that I could feel good about putting into my body. Our new line of Grain-Free Superfood Bars are just that. The salty-sweet crunch keeps you full longer, and our not-so-secret ingredient, reishi mushroom extract, provides you with vibrant health benefits to keep you glowing all summer long. When I began incorporating reishi into my diet and realized it’s potent powers, I strived to create a product that would be easy to eat no matter when or where I needed an immuneboosting snack. These magical bars are free of grains, lightly sweetened with coconut sugar and are the perfect way to give back to your body and mind this summer. In between the busy summer sprint, take time to schedule an outdoor dinner with friends and family to appreciate fresh, seasonal foods, spend time in nature and look to powerful superfoods like reishi to keep you energized. We hope the Glow Issue provides you with inspiration and energy to embrace the long, radiating days this summer season. Best,

FAMOUS A FEW OF OUR FAVE PURELY ELIZABETH CREATIONS TOO PRETTY NOT TO SHARE.


THRIVE PURELY

INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT: REISHI MUSHROOM The unexpected ingredient that packs a major nutrient punch.

Referred to as the “Mushroom of Immortality”, Reishi is known to aid the body’s response to stress and supports a healthy immune system. Sounds pretty magical, right? The dynamic benefits of this adaptogenic herb fuel our newest addition to the Purely Elizabeth product line. After a year of testing and refining, we are excited to share our Grain-Free Superfood Bars with Reishi to keep you glowing all year-round.


Our Grain-Free Superfood Bars give you that distinctive Purely Elizabeth taste of saltysweet with a chewy crunch that leaves you satisfied and ready to take on your day. We added healthy fats like cashew butter and coconut oil to keep you full longer, and nuts and seeds for an energizing bite. So, why add mushrooms?

THE SCOOP ON REISHI: The Reishi Mushroom, or “Lingzhi” in Chinese, has been cherished by Asian societies for thousands of years. The powerful properties in this magic mushroom have been known to provide overall well-being to the body. From helping the body adapt to stress to supporting a healthy immune system, we wanted to make it easy to get your daily serving of vitality through a delicious snack. • The Reishi extract we use in Purely Elizabeth bars is scientifically proven to provide an adequate amount of healthy prebiotics, beta glucan and adaptogens • Studies have shown that Reishi extract containing beta glucan supports overall physical health and a healthy immune system

HOW TO GET YOUR DAILY DOSE OF GLOW 1. Wake-Up Call: Add a serving (1 tsp) of Reishi powder to your smoothie, Matcha Latte or whatever gets your up in the morning! 2. The All Day Affair: Get your daily dose just as our founder, Elizabeth by adding 1 tsp of Reishi powder to your reusable water bottle in the morning and sip on those glowing benefits all day. 3. 3pm Pick-Me-Up: Grab one of our new Purely Elizabeth Superfood Bars and say goodbye to the afternoon slump. 4. Sweet Dreams: Add your favorite Reishi powder to your tea at night to reset your body and mind before bed. 5. Face Lift: Start and finish your day with Moon Juice's Beauty Shroom Plumping Jelly Serum made with Reishi to protect your skin against stressors and give you all-day hydration.

• An adaptogen is a natural substance considered to help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes

Reishi comes in many different forms to fit any lifestyle including powders, teas, Reishi-infused health drinks, beauty products and our grain-free bars. Here's how to get your daily dose ...

Our bars come in 4 flavors: Coconut Cashew, Peanut Butter, Banana Nut Butter and Chocolate Sea Salt. You can find online through our website, Amazon and select retail stores.


PURELY CHATTING With Toast Society


INSPIRE

M

Meet Rachael, Maddie and Alissa, co-

founders of Toast Society Cafe. These

three inspiring female entrepreneurs

sat down with us to talk all things

toast, nutrition and opening a cafe in

Las Vegas. Plus, co-founder, Rachael

of @rachaelsgoodeats, fills us in on

the inspiration behind the amazing

menu. Read on to learn more about

PURELY

nourishing the body coincided perfectly with the vision of Toast Society and I set out to create a menu of gourmet toasts, smoothies and nourishing bowls. I want people to not be overwhelmed by the thought of healthy eating, but to enjoy the simplicity of our ingredients and the feel good foods we are proud to serve.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE ITEMS ON THE MENU?

their exciting story ... WHERE DID YOU GET THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE CAFE? Rachael: Maddie and I have wanted to open up a healthy café together since we were younger, but it wasn’t until April 2017 we finally made the plunge. Maddie and Alissa were inspired by the vibrant, upbeat & healthy cafés they visited while traveling throughout Southeast Asia. They knew that Las Vegas (where they both reside) needed more healthy places like that. They also noticed the rise of avocado toast and combined it with Maddie’s idea of a Toast Bar and before they knew it, they began writing the business plan. Toast has been around forever and it’s such an easy food to transform into an aesthetically pleasing, healthy meal… so much more than just a trend. We all loved the thought of a clean and minimalistic approach with a simple menu. That’s where I came in— My philosophy on health, wellness, and

Rachael: House Favorite with Egg & Breakfast Crunch with Purely's OG granola on top Alissa: Toast & Lox and our Blue Majik Chia Breakfast Smoothie Maddie: The house favorite and our loaded coco yogurt bowl

AS NEW CAFE OWNERS, WHAT ARE SOME OF THE HIGHS AND LOWS YOU’VE EXPERIENCED SO FAR? Maddie: It’s been a crazy journey thus far. It still hasn’t hit us that Toast Society is alive and breathing after 13 months building from the ground up. We’ve all three really had to take a step back in order to realize what we’ve accomplished and it feels incredibly rewarding. Although it wasn’t an easy road to get to where we are now (our vision was doubted countless times), nothing makes us happier than seeing our customers come in to see us and enjoy TOAST! We are so proud of our


partnership together, our employees, and everyone who has supported us! Rachael: Obviously the hardest part is living in a different state!! I would love to be at TS everyday, but until we open up another location in Seattle (fingers crossed), I’m sure I’ll be in Vegas at least once a month.

WE CAN OBVIOUSLY TELL YOU’RE BIG HEALTHY FOODIES... RACHAEL, AS A REGISTERED DIETITIAN, WHAT IS YOUR NUTRITION PHILOSOPHY? I designed the menu to focus on real, wholesome and minimal ingredients; recipes that I love to make in my own kitchen. We stick to lower in sugar smoothies, nothing processed or artificial, and our main sweetener that we use is raw, organic honey. My nutrition philosophy has always been that eating healthy can be simple & enjoyable! You don't have to deprive yourself of the foods you love, it’s about learning how to make the swap for healthier ingredients instead.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE OTHER FUN FOOD TRENDS (BESIDES TOAST!) THAT YOU’RE INTO? Rachael: I've been hooked on the matcha + collagen + SunPotion train for a while now... but ever since opening the café, it's definitely been revved up since we have all the ingredients at our fingertips all day.

Alissa: My partners make fun of me because prior to Toast Society, I drank only black drip coffee. Now, I’ve stepped up my game and put together new concoctions. My go to is an unsweetened almond milk latte with collagen, mct oil, and cocao butter. Maddie: Matcha with oat milk and ashwagandha. If you haven’t tried oat milk yet, you are missing out on the new alternative milk trend. It’s my new go-to! www.toastsocietycafe.com
