The Healthy Shopper Picks and we've been thrilled to feature them here at Glimpse for the past few seasons!
Now that fall has arrived, we've got a great new line of Healthy Shopper Picks to share with you. The selection of products this year are ones that will be enjoyed by both children and adults. The first few products that we tried were ones that arrived in the nick of time. Cold & flu season is beginning to come upon us...and colds, runny noses and coughs were what were entering our home just as the Healthy Shopper Picks arrived on our doorstep. One of the picks for Fall 2013 was North American Herb and Spice Company's Oreganol P73 oil - in gelcaps! I've used Oregano Oil before - but not in the gelcap form, so these were amazing. It gave all the benefits of oregano oil without having to taste the incredibly strong flavor. It goes down easy and most certainly does the trick when it comes to beating a cold! These gelcaps are made using handpicked wild oregano from the mineral rich soil of the Mediterranean. It is a high quality product that has many health benefits.
For the kids, there was another cold remedy - Hyland's Cold 'n Cough 4Kids. This is a multi-symptom solution for children that is natural and safe (so that means, NO artificial sweeteners and preservatives!) We found that it did relieve our children of some of their cold symptoms - and they loved taking it. :)
Moving on, there were some delicious food items included in this fall's picks as well. Simply Natural is a great brand that has wonderful organic and healthy products. We've been enjoying their organic ketchup and mustards (3 different flavors/varieties to choose from). Although hotdog season is over for the year, we still enjoy using these on other foods such as eggs, sandwiches, etc.
If you're looking for some healthy options to send in your kids' lunch boxes for drinks, The Healthy Shopper is recommending the Kiju all natural and organic juice boxes which have NO sugar added. These come in a variety of different flavors and taste every bit as good (if not better!) than the 'other' juice boxes that we normally see.
Pamela's wheat and gluten-free cake and pancake mixes are included in the Healthy Shopper Picks this fall. Also, Pamela's offers a wheat and gluten-free artisan flour. The mixes are easy to use and healthier than other options that you will find on the grocery store shelves. It's a great way to fix a quick and easy breakfast or snack for you or your children.
Last, but certainly not least is the Olympic Krema Greek Style Yogurt. I've always enjoyed Greek yogurt but this one is beyond creamy. Mmmm, it's good! And the best part is that it uses only natural ingredients without any preservatives, gelatins or gluten. It's another great option for breakfasts or snacks.
Don't those picks sounds great? Just writing about them makes my mouth water...and the best part is that they've done the research for us. These picks have avoided the "Scary 7" ingredients (Glucose-Fructose (High Fructose Corn Syrup), Artificial Sweeteners, Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Artificial Flavours, Trans Fats, Artificial Colours and Preservatives) and are wonderful ideas to help you include more healthy foods into your home this fall.
