The Healthy Shopper is back with their picks for Fall and my family was super excited to try out some of these delicious looking items! If you are not familiar with The Healthy Shopper, they are great organic and eco-products handpicked by co-founders Randy Boyer and Andrea Donsky. These two are on a mission to make healthy shopping easy with one item at a time. For six seasons, The Healthy Shopper has helped Canadians cut harmful products from their lives and taught the importance of reading labels, and which ingredients to avoid.
This time around, their choices include: a noteworthy snack food that’s school safe and packed with veggies like spinach, carrots, tomatoes and beets; a new yogurt with Chia; some gluten-free baking mixes; organic pasta sauce for quick and easy meal ideas; and a couple of natural remedies for cold and flu season.
One of our favorite items in The Healthy Shopper 2014 Fall picks is the Made Good products. Made Good Organic Granola Bars and Granola Minis are a nut-free school safe lunchbox essential. Each bar or package is made with whole grains and equivalent to the nutrients found in one serving of vegetables. I love Made Good Granola Bars and Minis because I know my kids are getting nutrients that are healthy for their body — and they love Made Good Granola because it tastes delicious! The Made Good granola comes in delicious flavors such as chocolate banana, chocolate chip, strawberry, apple cinnamon, and mixed berry.
Olympic Diary’s new Chia yogurt is the first yogurt on the market with chia seeds. The addition of chia seeds makes Olympic yogurt even healthier and completely surpasses other yogurts that contain artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. Chia is also considered a super food and is a source of protein and fiber. Flavors include strawberry, vanilla, plain and pandan.
Those who have gluten and wheat allergies are always on the look out for flours and mixes that allows them to have desserts and breads. Pamela’s Products Sugar Cookie Baking Mix and All-Purpose Flour Artisan Blend are gluten and wheat free products that are sure to please. The All-Purpose Flour Artisan Blend can be used in any of your regular recipes and no one will know the difference.
Simply Natural organic Pasta sauces are low in sodium, gluten-free and non-GMO. These delicious varieties of pasta sauces can be used on their own with pasta, or in one of your family’s favorite recipes! The top four flavors are: Tomato and Basil, Tomato and Roasted Garlic, Fra Diavolo and Vodka Cream Pasta Sauce.
The Healthy Shopper also chose Allimax, a high-quality herbal supplement designed to help maintain a healthy natural defense system, and Hyland’s Homeopathic Baby Tiny Cold Tablets and Baby Cough Syrup.
