In early spring we brought you the Healthy Shopper List for Spring 2012. Now we are excited to bring to you their top picks for Fall 2012!
Randy Boyer and Andrea Donsky, are the founders and dynamic duo behind The Healthy Shopper Picks. They are back with great choices for healthier alternatives to salad dressings, sauces and household cleaners.
Just recently I was told by my doctor that I had to adapt to a wheat-free diet for a while to see if it made a difference in some of my health problems I was having. Did you know that the majority of products out there contain wheat?!? While fresh foods are easy to find without wheat, my challenge was finding salad dressings and other sauces that did not contain the wheat. Imagine my excitement when I realized that The Healthy Shopper had chosen items that were GLUTEN-FREE and safe for my diet!
Let’s start with their 1st choice product for Fall 2012 – the popular Asian brand San-J. The Healthy Shopper Team chose 4 of their favorite gluten-free and tasty Asian-inspired sauces. There is the Gluten-Free Orange Sauce (which would make a great glaze on ribs, chicken, or shrimp), the Gluten-Free Teriyaki sauce (which would make an excellent addition to fried rice), the Tamari Peanut Asian dressing (a must for those that enjoy Thai cuisine) and the San-J Gluten-Free Tamari Soy Sauce.
So many recipes call for soy sauce and with regular soy sauce having wheat ingredients, I was thrilled that I would be able to enjoy the taste of soy sauce without the health problems.
The 2nd choice from the Healthy Shopper is the NatraCare’s Regular Natural Ultra Pads. These femine hygeine products are GMO-free and are made from 87% renewable, natural and sustainable materials. They contain no plastics, latex, perfumes or gels. The 100% organic cotton used for the cover helps keep moisture away from the skin and the pads are ultra-thin so they are very comfortable and discreet. Both the pads and packaging are compostable. Natracare’s also has new cloth wipes enriched with organic oils which is a great natural solution for personal health care.
Simply Natural Organic salad dressings are the 3rd pick from the Healthy Shopper duo. All the Simply Natural Organic salad dressings are made with organic vegetables and herbs. There are also a bunch of gluten-free salad dressings in the Simply Natural Organic line – which makes me ecstatic! Now I can enjoy my salad with multiple flavors.
The final pick for Fall 2012, from the Healthy Shopper is Ecover products. The Ecover dishwashing liquid and the Ecover ZERO Natural Laundry Powder were the top 2 picks. With the Ecover dish washing liquid you can easily cut through grease and grime without all those unnecessary chemicals. The Ecover ZERO laundry powder is especially formulated to give you effective cleaning on all your whites and colors. The laundry powder is tough on dirt and will help get your family’s clothes looking clean with a great scent! Both the laundry powder and the dish washing liquid are plant based making them safe for septic tanks.
