Laughing Giraffe Organics is excited to announce that 1% of our online purchases will be donated to the Gentle Barn. Your purchases will help rescued animals have a place of healing and security. In addition, your purchases will provide special needs and at-risk children with the opportunity to heal and gain compassion by working with the animals. Laughing Giraffe has chosen this organization to donate to not only because of it what it does for animals and children but for its beliefs about how a planet based diet helps our environment, promotes health and teaches compassion. These are the values that we wholeheartedly support!
Had a great weekend with the Gentle Barn! It felt great to give back to animals and environment. Hope Marshall, a member of LGO’s youngest generation, loved interacting and caring for the animals on the farm.

Natural Products Expo East 2014 was awash with foods catering to vegan diets. From cashew cheese to broccoli-containing french fries, we saw abundant smart product formulations and short ingredient lists.
But the products that truly attracted us weren’t merely substitutions for meat and dairy. This year, vegan foods are standing tall, boasting that they’re simply superior in taste and health. Some companies avoided labeling products as “vegan” altogether. This tactic is starkly different from the norm several years ago, when labeling a food as “vegan” was just about as sexy as you could get.
This curry-spiced paleo granola from Laughing Giraffe (known for its raw, vegan macaroons) contains clusters of cashews, coconuts and currants, held together with agave, lemon and pink sea salt. A hunger-slaying snack you eat straight from the bag. Also paleo friendly.
Instead brands are focusing on taste, clean ingredients and excellent nutrition. Laughing Giraffe, for example, hits the trifecta of food trends with its raw, curry-flavored, paleo-friendly snacking granola. Likewise, Tumeric Golden Milk relies on ancient wisdom to deliver a dairy-free milk made from coconut and hemp and anti-inflammatory spices.
Animal-free eating is still very much on trend. But manufacturers are catering to consumers by focusing on complex flavor development and health benefits rather than kind sourcing.
