Maybe you are in a good groove with your nutrition - you're feeling the results you want in your body, as well as the energy and vitality you want. For you, look at this post as a way to learn about fun new products you can add to your diet.
Or maybe your diet could stand to increase in its "healthy-ness," and you are ready for a change. If this is you, adding some of these healthy staples will help you in this endeavor. Whichever camp you fall into, we hope you enjoy perusing some of this list of products our fitness trainers love, and what we like about each.
1) Caulipower cauliflower pizza crust - If you haven't tried pizza on a cauliflower crust yet, you are missing out! It's absolutely delicious and a great healthy sub for the super calorie-dense and high-carb traditional crust. Top it as you would a regular pizza. Extra veggies always make it better.
2) Broccoli rice - Sounds strange, right? Though a little odd, riced broccoli is a great way to get your greens and healthy cruciferous veggies in. Plus, it actually is tasty. We really do sub this product where rice is usually used. Think Mexican bowls, stir fry, Indian curry bowls, etc. It takes on the flavor of the dish and provides a much healthier "base."
3) Coconut Wraps - When you pull these out of the package, you will undoubtedly think they're weird. But, trust us on this one, these are great. Low calorie and low carb, these wraps are great as a container for your favorite Mexican burrito, breakfast burrito, and more!
4) Primal Kitchen mayo - Mayo made with coconut or avocado oil is much less inflammatory than the traditional canola oil or safflower oil typically round in mayo. Use this for deviled eggs, or chicken or tuna salad. We like mixing in diced green chilies for a lettuce-wrapped burger topping. So yummy!
5) Primal Kitchen dressing - Same as the mayo - is much healthier than traditional dressings made with canola, soybean, safflower, and other inflammatory oils. Each dressing we've tried by Primal Kitchen has been wonderful. They have tons of different options!
6) Epic jerky bars - These are the best jerky bars around! A great naturally high protein bar that can travel anywhere for a perfect go-to snack. This bar proves that healthy food can be convenient.
7) Simple Mills crackers - Just taste them. 'Nough said. These crackers are grain-free and made from almond flour. Truly, they are some of the most delicious crackers ever. It's easy to overeat them because they're so yummy; watch the portion size!
8) Dang bar - Another awesome go-to snack that can be kept in a travel bag, at work, in your car, etc. They have so many great flavors to try too. Our favorite right now is the Chocolate Sea Salt bar.
9) Kite Hill dips - If you or someone you love is trying to avoid dairy, this is the brand to look for. They've got so many options for the dairy-free foodie (from cream cheese to yogurt). We love the French Onion almond dip most. We pair it with sliced up cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and sliced peppers for a fun and different appetizer.
** We recommend purchasing these products from the local grocery store, Natural Grocers or Sprouts. However, most of these products can be ordered from Amazon or Thrive Market.
