First of all, in case you're not sure exactly what The Healthy Shopper is, let me fill you in. They simply help Canadians get natural and organic foods into their lives. Their focus is on healthy ingredients and their goal is to help families make simple changes in their homes to get rid of conventional products and replace them with natural ones. They do the research, ingredient-reading and carefully select their top picks every spring and fall. The Healthy Shopper is a fabulous resource for busy families.
So, let's take a peek at what The Healthy Shopper has chosen for fall 2014. There are some great ones that are definitely going to be staples in our pantry in the future! Their first choice for this fall is Olympic Dairy's new Chai yogurt! I've often heard about how healthy Chia seeds are - and even have some in my own pantry, but rarely find places to use them, so I was excited to try this new combination of Chia & yogurt from Olympic Dairy. Olympic Dairy has great ingredients to begin with (no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives), but the Chia, which is considered a super food, makes their yogurt even healthier! Did you know that Chia is the richest plant-source of healthy Omega 3 oil, important for heart and cholesterol health? Combine that with the pre- and probiotics that Olympic Dairy yogurt gives you and you've got a winning product!
