I’ve mentioned my penchant for grocery shopping before. I could spend hours in a food store, the way most women could spend time in a mall. The downside of this? I dress pretty terribly. The upside? I find some really amazing healthy foods to try!
I was so pumped when I came across this Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar drink. You see, I’m a big fan of apple cider vinegar as a natural expectorant when I get sick. However, it’s not for everyone. In fact, David hates the taste of it. I get it—it’s vinegar. But this simple drink is the solution! Sweetened with stevia, and with only about 40 calories per bottle, it’s a great way to get all the benefits of apple cider vinegar without having to hold your nose and swallow.
We eat a decent amount of Greek yogurt over here, and if you do the same, you’ve also probably noticed it’s hard to find organic Greek yogurt. I’m not an end-all-be-all organic girl, but I still was excited to find this Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt. It was thick and creamy (+1), the blueberry mix-in had real, tiny blueberries in it (+2) and it didn’t seem as sweet as other Greek yogurts, in a good way (+3).
I wish I could have had more than one bite so I could describe it more, but Hailey insisted on finishing it herself.
Speaking of Hailey…
I am always on the look out for unique and healthy snacks to keep her occupied while I cook dinner. Annie Chun’s roasted seaweed snacks seemed like a great idea! She tried it and immediately handed it back to me. Rare for her. So I tried it. GAG. I get it kid, they’re terrible.
Wheat berries. These little gems aren’t new to me, but I often forget about them. Maybe it’s the $6.00 price tag for this little bag? Turns out, there are more than I thought in this little bag and they cook up in only 15 minutes. They are my current grain for the week and I almost forgot how much I missed their chewy, nutty texture.
Wheat berries, kale, spinach, roasted sweet potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, roasted onion, goat cheese and balsamic dressing.
Finally, I found some raw almonds. Usually I eat these by the handful because I like them well enough when I don’t have my Blue Diamond Habanero BBQ almonds on hand.
But yesterday I was looking for a little more flavor, so I raided my spice cabinet and created
So good. So easy. Sweet and salty with a kick. Right up my alley.
They’d both be great to package in mason jars with ribbon for homemade Christmas gifts!
What about you… any good food finds lately?
