Monthly Favorites: August Edition

Monthly Favorites August 2015

Redwood Hill Farm plain goat milk yogurt

Goat milk yogurt may seem odd, however it is actually extremely close to human mother’s milk than one might think. Plus it also has great health benefits. For example, it is easier to digest and is best for people who have bowel inflammation. It can also increase ones ability to metabolize iron and copper. It also has naturally low levels of fat while maintaining high levels of proteins and important amino acids. It has an average of 35% of fatty acids unlike cows 17%, making it more nutritionally wholesome. While it is easy on the stomach, especially for many people with allergies (even people who are lactose intolerant) it is rich in calcium and amino acid tryptophan making it a great cows milk alternative. This tends to be thicker than most cows milk yogurt, but I find it to be just as delicious if not more, and is great for breakfast or a snack.

Naturesall Dried Fruit

I have tried both the pineapple and apple flavors and both are absolutely tasty and addicting. While it is simply dried fruit it may seem quite plain, however they are jam packed with flavor. The pineapple one has a tangy, tart flavor while the apple has a sweeter flavor.

Wedderspoon 100% Raw Organic Active Beechwood Honey

This honey has no added flavorings or sugar and is simplistically scrumptious. A little goes a long way with this one. I like to add this on top of my yogurt in the mornings to sweeten it up a bit.

Bare Simply Toasted Crunchy Coconut Chips

Another great thing to add to my yogurt that has great natural flavor without any added sugar. It gives a great crunch to any meal and is also a great snack on its own.

Go Macro Macrobar

These bars are both healthy and filling. They are also not only gluten free but vegan and low in sugar as well.

OceanSpray Craisins Snackboxes

These snackboxes are the perfect size for a quick snack and come in a pack of 6. Just like the regular craisins these dried cranberries are both sweet and tart in flavor.

Feel Good Foods

These frozen dinners are delicious, healthy , quick, and easy to make. They have a selection of Asian flavors. My favorite are the vegetable dumplings and the vegetable spring rolls. Both are gluten free and perfect for a quick dinner, when you don’t have a lot of time to make something fresh.

Goji Berries

I add these as well into my yogurt in the mornings. They have a kind of crunch to them while also being soft and gummy as well. Goji berries are originally from China and are high in vitamin C , fiber, and antioxidants. They are also a good source of iron, vitamin A. They also have a slow blood sugar rise helping to prevent a sugar crash later. They also can make you feel fuller and keep you from overeating. They can be eaten in numerous ways. Try them out-of-hand, in cereal, in oatmeal, in yogurt, with nuts for a trail mix snack, or in juice or tea.
