At Mother Earth's / Emma's Tamales our mission is to offer
wholesome ready to eat food that will Nourish your body, Feed your
Soul and Lift your Spirit*. We share with our own families what we
share in the market place with the world, well, at least the Western
America is on the move and eating well is an important component
to sustain an active lifestyle. When I'm on a road trip I live on
them but I eat them often here at work and at home as well. We
package them so they are easy to transport and have a long shelf
life without the use of preservatives. We take pride in using
expeller pressed oils because they are not derived using Hexane.
Hexane is a common chemical used to extract oils for food use which
is known to cause cancer and is bad for our environment. Major fast
food chains, conventional food companies and many others use these
oils; they make margarine with these oils too. I find it ironic that
as Americans consume more vegetable oil cancer rises. Cancer is now
the leading cause of death, while death from heart disease has moved
to second place. I look at it this way, at the nucleus of every cell
is fat, think about it……….a nut, a seed, etc…once that cell is
mutated does it become cancer? You know the answer, we Americans
aren't stupid! Also, sources on the web claim that the human brain
is up to 90% fat, imagine that!
We use expeller pressed canola for it's taste, high heating point
and health benefits which are similar to olive oil. We also use cold
pressed extra-virgin olive oil in our organic Spanish rice and
seafood tamales. Our tamales are made with our special blend of
non-gmo corn & organic non-gmo corn and we use non-gmo organic
Tofu from our local Sacramento Tofu Co. Our local produce company
knows to always bring us organic over conventional as long as it's
within our cost effectiveness range and all produce is thoroughly
rinsed and checked. Our chicken is always skinless lean all natural
You will taste the clean difference of our food and hope
that it helps to keep your life active, healthy and fulfilled!
Blessings & Peace be with you!
From the folks at Mother
Earth's / Emma's
Although we offer a few meat choices we hope to encourage
meat-eaters into eating more vegetarian food for the sake of our
planet, their health and God's Beautiful creatures.
