My Favorite Things, Part Tres

When I come across high quality, yummy food products, I just have to share them with you. Obviously, food makes me happy, but healthy food that tastes great is what I get really excited about. Here are the top three things I have tried recently:

1. Sweetleaf came out with new Liquid Stevia drops that you can add to food, drinks, desserts, etc. The new Coconut flavor is my favorite. I add it to my almond milk protein shakes for a different flavor, and to coconut milk, pineapple juice and Malibu Rum, to make a dairy-free pina colada! Another new flavor is watermelon, and it tastes exactly like the fruit! What I am most impressed about with Sweetleaf is that the product is made with 100% stevia. I didn't realize until I started checking other brands such as TruVia, that they add other chemicals and ingredients in addition to stevia.

2. Lundberg Family Farm Rice Chips. These are made from organic corn and brown rice flours, so they are good for people on gluten-free diets. Plus, the sunflower seeds in the chips give them such a nice crunch. I really like the flavor I typically get: Sea Salt, but Lundberg also has Fiesta Lime, Santa Fe Barbecue, Wasabi, and many other flavors. You can find the chips at health stores, gourmet stores, and supermarkets.

3. Daiya Vegan Jalapeno Garlic Havarti-Style Cheese. Wow. This is really the closest thing to cow's milk cheese in terms of flavor and texture. And the jalapeno garlic flavor is not over-done. It adds a nice zip on tacos, in wraps and sandwiches, and when eaten by itself.

Have you tired these products? If so, let me know which flavors are your favorites!

  1. Hello Everyone, I recently tried the Sweetleaf Liquid Stevia and they are great for all the water drinkers out there trying to stay healthy.They are very convenient because of their size and come in a variety of flavors. I add a few drops to my water each day mixing up the flavors as I go. My favorite is Strawberry Kiwi because it is very refreshing. I would recommend it for anyone trying eliminate processed soda and move to something healthier. Enjoy
