The Healthy Shopper Picks for Fall

For nearly 15 years, The Healthy Shopper has become an invaluable resource for healthier options for families to eat healthier and live better.  It was founded by Randy Boyer and Andrea Donsky in 1999 to encourage Canadians to pursue and maintain a naturally healthy lifestyle.  Their book “Unjunk Your Junk Food,” has become a very meaningful resource for educating those searching for healthier alternatives to their favourite junk foods and The Healthy Shopper Coupon Book has encouraged consumers to try high-quality natural and organic products at more affordable prices.   

I am always excited to see what is on the Heathly Shopper picks list. This time around there was a tasty variety of mustard’s and baking goods my family loved! 

The Healthy Shopper Picks for Fall 2013 Group Product Photo-600

 

For its 25th anniversary, Pamela’s has created some easy-to-make recipes that add a healthy twist to school lunches and afternoon snacks, as well as some delicious fun-to-make recipes for Thanksgiving and Halloween baking.  “Our families love sweets and Pamela’s cake, pancake and bread mixes offer us so many options; and while they’re gluten and wheat-free, I bet that once you’ve tried them you will never know the difference,” says Randy.  “On Sundays, it’s pancake day and my kids’ favourite pancakes are Pamela’s with mashed bananas inside, and sometimes for a special treat I add dark chocolate chips.  They’re easy to make, and a healthier choice that I can feel good about.”     

 

Olympic Krema Greek Style Yogurt is their next pick because it’s one of the creamiest yogurts on the market, and uses only 100% natural ingredients without preservatives, gelatins or gluten.  Their next choice is Kiju juice boxes, Canada’s first 100% certified organic juice boxes that are naturally flavoured without any sugar.  Simply Natural organic ketchup and mustards are The Healthy Shopper pick for condiments as healthier alternatives to traditional condiments for sandwiches, hamburgers or to add into our favourite comfort foods this season.  All Simply Natural condiments are organic, fat free, with zero trans fats and do not contain high fructose corn syrup, one of the “Scary 7” ingredients the Healthy Shopper recommends avoiding.

 

The other Healthy Shopper Picks this season include Hyland’s Cold ‘n Cough 4Kids, a multi-symptom solution for children that Randy and Andrea opt for because many conventional cold remedies contain food colouring, artificial sweeteners and preservatives.  Their last choice is North American Herb and Spice Company’s Oreganol P73 oil and gelcaps.  “With so many studies showing the benefits of natural oregano oil, we really wanted to include this one because we have experienced the results of using oregano oil first hand,” says Donsky.  North American Herb and Spice Oreganol P73 oil and Oreganol P73 gelcaps are made from several species of handpicked wild oregano from the mineral rich soil of the Mediterranean.  All of its products are supported with quality research.  North American Herb and Spice has always maintained that nourishment from raw, whole foods is the key to maintaining optimal health.

For me, wanting to introduce my family to other options is important. However it is sometimes a difficult task. They do not want to try anything new and are fine eating the same old stuff. The Healthy Shopper picks makes introducing new foods and healthier alternatives to our home easier. Most of the time they did not realize they were even eating a healthy option. The pancakes were so good and the kids could not get enough of the juice boxes. Being smack dab in the middle of cold and flu season I appreciated the cold and cough for kids as well. It was a great mixture of items to try out.

  85. breanna reilly says

    I would love to try absolutely everything the "Healthy Shopper" has to offer, considering I am a very health conscious individual, always struggling to find certified organic and preservative free goods. It isn't always easy! It is great to have a place like this to go for information and product description so that I am not stuck in stores reading thousands of labels and trying to descifer between which ones are acceptable among the majority of which aren't. One of the products that stood out the most to me was the Preservative Free Aloe Vera Drink! I would love to try this and see how it effects my IBS and Stomach spasmic issues – I have heard that it works wonders, but have never actually found a preservative-free, alcohol free & certified organic product such as this, so I am very interested – in all of the products including this specific one! Thanks!
