We’ve been having summer weather here this week and are loving it!
Powered by Mom Blog wants to share some of her favourite summer and all year long healthy shopping and healthy eating items
We received a nice package of great healthy shopper Spring picks that we are still enjoying! From salsa to yogurt, to some take care of us products and some for new mothers which I shared with a friend who has a newborn. While we loved everything I just have to share some of my favourites! So it’s time to talk about healthy shopping healthy eating!
We enjoy yogurts all year long whether it’s Fall, Winter, Spring or Summer you will find yogurt in our fridge! Olympic Dairy is a nice choice for yogurt as they have it in organic and some amazing flavours! It just tastes good and we know it’s good for you. They have such flavours as Organic Plain Yogurt 3.5%, French Vanilla Yogurt and its new Coconut Yogurt, Lemon Yogurt and Mango Yogurt all of which are organic certified. My favourite out of those are both the coconut oh my and Mango yogurt two of my most favourite foods in the world! I also use plain yogurt in place of sour cream and even mayo. I’m not a mayo fan so I use yogurt when making tuna sandwiches and sometimes even my own salad dressings.
Up next is the Simply Natural salsa oh my they are soooo good! Simply Natural uses diced tomatoes and vegetables in their Organic Salsas rather than purees which I much prefer making them a chunky salsa. Naturally we like salsa on our tacos like the ones we made below but we also put it on nachos, in some salads and even some sandwiches with avocado. When you have so many wonderful flavours such as pineapple or mango salsa you can do that. You should try it some time it adds a nice flavour to foods without adding fat or a ton of calories!
I bruise easily and they take forever to go away but before I never thought to put anything on them as I have sensitive skin. Well now I have Zax’s Original Bruise Cream which is a patent-pending bruise healing formula that is made in Canada in a GMP and ISO-9001 certified facility and is Health Canada approved. It contains natural ingredients such as Arnica, Witch Hazel and Menthol!
