Food Finds – Choice Organic Teas, Healthy Bites, and More
Posted Feb 07 2013 2:50pm
I love finding new clean eating approved foods don’t you? Here are a few I have discovered in the past few weeks.
Right now I am really into chai tea. It has been a cold and wet winter, and this spicy blend is keeping me warm and cozy. A little while ago I was given the opportunity, through my affiliation with Girls Gone Sporty, to try Choice Organic Teas . They have two new chai flavors: Masala and Rooibos that are great. I also tried their green teas, which were also good.
Not only is it good on its own but it is easy to turn into a sweet chai tea latte.
Brew a mug of tea using Masala Chai teabag, add in a little warm milk (to taste), 1-2 teaspoons honey, and ½ teaspoon good vanilla extract.
If you’re unsure about how much to add, try a teaspoon of honey, and 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla and a splash of milk and work from there,
Holy amaze-balls! These snacks have become one of my new faves! My friend Lindsay not only blogs over at Cotter Crunch, she is a certified Nutrition Manager and Fitness Consultant who make these most amazing snack balls. They are gluten free, some are dairy free and she can make your balls customer order (even vegan). She also has an e-book that you can purchase that contains several recipes for similar snack balls.
She also shared a recipe which I am dying to try – and will just as soon as I can get to the Fresh Market to get some dried cherries. It’s on her blog: Cherry Chia Fudge Bites – they look amazing!
La Tortilla Factory Tortillas
It’s hard to find tortillas that don’t contain partially hydrogenated oil – but I finally found some! La Tortilla Factory carries several flavors but I tend to stay as close to natural as I can (even when it’s processed). These tortillas are the least processed I can find that actually taste good. I found mine at the Fresh Market, but if you log onto their website you search for a location near you.
