The Healthy Shopper’s goal is to put LESS artificial ingredients and MORE organic and healthy food options into your basket when you are shopping!
The Healthy Shopper™ Coupon Book as well as their online E-coupons enable you to buy high quality natural and organic products in Canada at more affordable prices allowing you to enjoy a wider range of healthy alternatives for you and your family.
The Fall Healthy Shopper Picks including organic and healthy options are:
Olympic Dairy’s new Chia yogurt
I typically add chia seeds to my yogurt every morning, now with this first ever yogurt on the market that includes chia seeds, I can reduce my morning routine by one step. With the addition of chia seeds (a super food), this yogurt is made even healthier! Olympic yogurt contains pre- and probiotics for an extra immunity boost and has NO artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Not only is Chia the richest plant-source of healthy Omega 3 oil, but it is also important for heart and cholesterol health, and is now recognized as a weight-loss helper too as it keeps you feeling fuller, longer (bonus!).
Thanks to the Healthy Shopper, I have discovered my new favourite snacking food: Made Good Organic Granola Bars and Granola Minis. They are nut-free (yay!), making them a school safe lunchbox essential and each bar or package of minis is made with whole grains and a vegetable powder equivalent to the nutrients found in one serving of vegetables. I can finally have my son consume a serving of veggies without him even realizing it, these bars are THAT good! This yummy snack meets a minimum of 20% of an adult’s required daily intake of vitamins A, B1, B6 C, D and E coming from the vegetable sources. Made Good Organic Granola Bars and Minis are non-GMO, wheat-free, vegan and Kosher. Flavours include chocolate banana, chocolate chip, strawberry, apple cinnamon, and mixed berry. My daughter LOVES the chocolate banana and my son loves the mixed berry. I am IN LOVE with the Granola Minis – they make snacking on the go so easy (and healthy).
For those of you who are on a gluten-free diet, Pamela’s Products are a must try! The Healthy Shopper picks this fall included their wheat and gluten-free Sugar Cookie Baking Mix and All-Purpose Flour Artisan Blend. I have used the All-Purpose Flour Artisan Blend as a one-for-one replacement in many of my recipes with very little noticeable difference.
The Healthy Shopper has also revisited Simply Natural and this time chosen the top four best-selling organic Pasta sauces because they’re low in sodium, gluten-free, non-GMO and such great value. They retail at $3.99 which is a very reasonable price for organic tomato sauce. The top four include Tomato and Basil, Tomato and Roasted Garlic, Fra Diavolo and Vodka Cream Pasta Sauce.
This fall, if you’re looking for a way to prevent and treat colds and influenza, bacterial, fungal and viral infections, The Healthy Shopper selected and recommends Allimax, a high-quality herbal supplement designed to help maintain a healthy natural defense system. Allicin found in garlic, is the ‘mother’ substance and is responsible in total or in part for many of the properties attributable to garlic. The sophisticated refinement process of Allimax allows allicin to be captured and delivered to where your body needs it. Allimax has all the benefits of garlic locked in an odour-free, 100% vegetarian capsule.
Finally, this season The Healthy Shopper has chosen Hyland’s Homeopathic Baby Tiny Cold Tablets and Baby Cough Syrup. Its Baby Tiny Cold Tablets instantly dissolve in your baby’s mouth (yay – no more messy liquids for baby!). Hyland’s Baby Cough Syrup is naturally sweetened and a safe way to soothe babies six months and up, by relieving the harsh symptoms of coughing.
