The Healthy Shopper is back with their picks for Spring 2014! Their top picks include organic barbeque sauces, organic oils, natural and organic peanut butter spreads, rich and creamy organic cream cheese and yogurt.
Their first choice is Maison Orphée’s tasty unrefined organic virgin sunflower oil, extra virgin olive oil and virgin coconut oil. These cold pressed, organic and unrefined oils keep their nutritional properties and have a more intense aroma than their traditional counterparts. Maison Orphée’s products have not been genetically modified or treated with chemical fertilizers.
Next up are the organic barbeque sauces from Simply Natural. These sauces are organic alternatives to traditional barbeque sauces and come in organic tangy, smoky and honey flavours. They’re fat free with zero trans fats or high fructose corn syrup. We have had colder, rainy temperatures the past week, but we cannot wait until grilling weather to try out these delicious barbeque sauces!
Olympic Dairy’s organic milk, cream cheese, sour cream and yogurt are creamy and rich alternatives that are 100% natural. They are ideal for smoothies, salad dressings to top a fresh fruit salad or to add to dips. They are made without preservatives, gluten or gelatins.
Last is Earth Balance with its natural buttery spreads and nut butters that don’t have to be stirred. A great fit for organic and vegan consumers or those looking for health conscious alternatives to conventional products. The Earth Balance Crunchy Coconut & Peanut Spread is a delicious blend of salty and sweet and makes a great spread on your toast in the morning, or as an afternoon snack!
