It is great that nowadays many local grocery stores (even small ones) and pharmacies have organic and healthy section to shop from, so almost all of the products from The Healthy Shopper Picks for Spring Picks 2013 can be easily found there.
The first product in a list is certified-organic and 100% natural yogurt Olympic Dairy which we already love for the taste and buy quite often. The Healthy Shoppers chose Organic Coconut, Mango and Lemon, these three new flavours with the original Organic Plain and French Vanilla. We tried mostly all the flavours and I love that feeling of eating fresh and tasty fruits.
Second pick is Earth Balance Organic Coconut Spread, the newest addition to the line of organic alternatives for butter and margarine. First I found it tastes quite different but after a while I feel like becoming addicted a little bit to that taste, I think because it is free of lactose, soy, dairy, casein and gluten.
Third choice is Simply Natural Organic Salsas, made using only organic ingredients. My family tried different flavors including Pineapple, Mango, Black Bean & Corn, and we loved their grandma’s homemade taste, they are so good for organic tortilla chips or as toppers for meat and fish.
Hygiene category has always been important for everyone especially for women and babies, so The Healthy Shoppers have chosen Natracare products again. My boy absolutely likes Natracare’s 100% Organic Cotton Baby Wipes same as I like Intimate Wipes. Natracare’s wipes are free from parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate - SLS, alcohol and synthetic preservatives and are perfect to use for the whole family. Donsky explains, “the baby wipes are also great to remove make-up, put in your gym bag or keep in your car to wipe sticky hands, and they’re perfect for camping, picnics and the list goes on.” Plus Natracare’s products are biodegradable, compostable, and are derived from sustainable, renewable resources and never tested on animals.
Next two the Healthy Shopper Spring 2013 Picks: Zax’s Original Bruise Cream and Hyland’s Homeopathic Leg Cramps are my favorites too. I feel so lucky to be introduced to them and try these products, because when I have bruises or suffer from leg cramping I leave it as it is, do not take any medication as these are conditions not severe or strong. But now after trying these two products I came to the certain relief level and I can better sleep also knowing that Zax’s Original Bruise Cream is Paraben and Propylene Glycol free, and Hyland’s Leg Cramps the only non-prescription OTC solution for restless legs, it is side-effect free, non-habit forming and drug-free.
In addition to Spring 2013 selection of high-quality natural and organic products, the Healthy Shopper also encourage people (consumers) to understand the importance of reading labels. As co-founder of the Healthy Shopper Randy Boyer said: “We want people to understand that it’s not just fat and calories they need to watch, it’s also what’s in the products they’re using. Our focus is on the importance of reading labels, if you don’t understand it, you probably shouldn’t be eating or using it.”
