9 Foods You Must Try

by | Jan 27, 2021 | Editor's Pick, Featured, Featured, Lifestyle

Our tastebuds are singing. Over the past few months, we made it our mission to try something new, and take a break from the same old routine. We were pleasantly surprised, and we liked it!

 

Here are a few of our favs

 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, keeping us healthy and energized to start the day. Did you know that breakfast foods vary from each country, France, Spain, and Italy start with a pastry and strong coffee? While Asian country’s breakfast looks more like lunch or dinner, the UK and Australia enjoy a full English breakfast, which includes eggs, sausage, bacon, beans, mushrooms, and cooked tomato. Delicious but after that, I’m ready to take a nap!

Something new for breakfast

I’m not a cereal person, I find myself enjoying cereal in the evening more than morning, but I must say these next four have quickly become my favorite vs my usual cheerios or rice Chex, and I am enjoying cereal for breakfast again.

Over the last 30 years, Nature’s Path has grown to be North America’s largest certified organic breakfast and snack food company with a product line of over 150 cold cereals, granolas, hot oatmeal, waffles, bars, and cookies.

 

Sunrise Crunchy Vanilla, lived up to the brand’s description, a delightful crunchy blend of flakes, puffs, and rice crispies, coated with organic molasses and natural vanilla. Carefully crafted with organic corn, omega-3 rich flax seeds, and ancient grains like buckwheat, quinoa, and amaranth, our cereal has 15g whole grains and 4g of fiber and is certified gluten-free and vegan.

Heritage Flakes, I was a little hesitant, I’m not a fan of spelt, but I must say I was delightfully surprised. Their number one organic cereal, thanks to its healthy ancient grains, with a touch of organic honey and sea salt. These deliciously crunchy flakes were crafted with six ancient grains: KAMUT Khorasan wheat, quinoa, millet, spelt, oats, and barley. Rich, nutty, and flavourful, each hearty bowl comes with 23g whole grains and 5g of plant protein.

Talk about waking up your taste buds, I ate this one separate and also added it to my other cereal bowl. Invigorating turmeric granola with crunchy cashews and powerhouse ingredients turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper, which are known to support anti-inflammatory and blood sugar balancing functions of the body.

We received a sample of this relatively new powder and were floored. I made mine with almond milk, a half banana, and or some fresh berries. Huel Powder v3.0 is a nutritionally complete meal in powdered form. Just mix with water in the free shaker provided and you’re good to go. Huel Powder contains an ideal balance of protein, carbs, essential fats, fiber, all 27 essential vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients, kombucha, pre-and probiotics.

Snacks – when it comes to snacks, you have to choose right or you will blow your caloric intake for the entire day in just one bite.

OK., yes, skeptical for sure, but one bite of Without a Trace, and these little sweet sun-ripened organic dates combine with the tartness of fresh raspberries and a hint of chocolate, did in fact create a powerful bite.
Oh boy, I’ll bet you cannot eat just one! Without A Trace Chocolate Chip cookie, is by far the best ever health cookie I’ve tasted in a very long time. Sometimes you just want to have fun! Our Soft Chocolatey Chip cookie is sweet, chewy, and yummy all in one.

Always in my bag, we get hungry throughout the day, especially if you are like me who swims or bike in the morning and then keep going until 6 pm. Thi delicious chewy mix of gluten-free oats, flaxseeds, and chia seeds combines with the classic flavor of cinnamon and just a hint of sea salt.

Or the chewy combination of gluten-free oats, flaxseed, and chia seeds meets real strawberries and the sweetness of strawberry juice. 3g of fiber makes this bar.

A must-have snack!

 

 

A brand that is catching on quickly. Sprout Living is committed to inspiring health, happiness, and balance in every person by crafting and sharing the purest health products and initiatives. Because of this, everything we make avoids a lot of the unnecessary additives you find in plant nutrition: no gums, no “flavoring” and absolutely nothing synthetic.

 

I am in love with this new Epic Protein, a multi-source, organic protein powder made with powerful whole superfoods sourced from around the world. With no gums, no artificial or “natural” flavoring, and no fillers, it is a cleaner plant protein that tastes better too.

Get your greens with this FD Sprout Mix Broccoli & Kale is a potent blend of broccoli and kale sprouts that is the equivalent of buying fresh sprouts but in a shelf-stable and convenient form.
