I love to try new things and change it up, so I make an effort to find a new ingredient to cook with when I go to the grocery store every week. But there are a few things I ALWAYS seem to pick out, here are some of my favorites!
1. Favorite bar: gomacro bars
I love them because they are organic and they are real food. When you look at them you can tell what’s in them and they actually are made of what flavor they say they are. The products have positive effects on our bodies and the world. I try to buy from companies that are sustainable and organic and this one is pretty awesome.
2. Favorite pasta: Tolerant Organic Red Lentil Pasta
Making a pasta dish is an easy, fast and cheap dinner but it’s not the healthiest thing you can eat. Of course you can still eat real homemade pasta once in a while (if you’re not gluten free), everything in moderation! This red lentil pasta is a fabulous substitute for pasta. It is gluten-free, organic and only contains one ingredient: red lentils! They also make a black bean pasta. I love it because it tastes great and is packed with protein.
3. Favorite yogurt: Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt
I don’t eat a lot of plain yogurt but I love it in the morning with granola for a quick healthy breakfast and I love to use it in smoothies! Smoothies are an awesome way to get fruit, greens, protein, probiotics, etc.. pretty much anything your body needs you can put it in a smoothie. When I buy real dairy products I like to buy 2% because the natural fat is important. Greek yogurt is also a great protein packed snack for after a work out.
4. Favorite hummus: Hope Hummus
Hope hummus is sooooooo good! Thai coconut curry is my favorite flavor but the Sriracha is a close second. They have so many amazing spreads. They are great for dipping vegetable and chips or as a sauce for a sandwiches and entrees.
5. Favorite kombucha: Better Booch
If you don’t like kombucha yet, try this!!! It tastes amazing. Kombucha is a probiotic, fermented, bubbly tea. It is energizing, helps with digestion, boosts the immune system and is said to improve liver function, aid in weight loss and even prevent cancer. I love Better Booch as a brand, It is made in Los Angeles, buying local is always a good choice. It is a great company, they use the best ingredients which get the best taste.
