This week we rounded up our favorite new healthy products. From Icelandic sea salt to traditional Brazilian snack bites, these goods are definitely finding a permanent home in our pantry.
NORDUR SEA SALT
Does this need salt? If it’s Nordur Sea Salt (above), the answer is yes. Nordur produces high-quality salt in an environmentally conscious way. Their processes rely on traditional Icelandic/ Danish methods and are fueled by geothermal energy, bringing big flavor with little to no environmental impact. This North Atlantic salt is perfect to use as a finish and is a great way to support sustainable food-sourcing practices. (Available online; $11.99 for a 250g box.)
Brazi Bites prove what we already knew—nothing goes better than bread and cheese. These authentic Brazilian cheese bread snacks are naturally gluten-free and have no sugar, trans-fat, preservatives, or artificial additives. Pop them in the oven for 20 minutes for a mouth-watering snack that’s crispy, fluffy, and gooey all at once. Their four delicious flavors, Cheddar & Parmesan, Zesty Pepper Jack, 3 Cheese Pizza, and Garlic Asiago, are perfect as a side-dish, appetizer, or midnight snack. (Available in stores nationwide or online; $50.34 for a 6-pack.)
Cold-pressed juices have long been all the rage, but WTRMLN WTR is changing the hydration game. With high-profile investors like Beyonce, and endorsements from notable chefs like Mario Batali, this spunky drink is making a name for itself one bottle at a time. WTRMLN WTR uses ethically grown and locally harvested watermelons to create a rejuvenating drink packed with vitamins and nutrients. The beverage comes in five hydrating flavors, like WTRMLN GNGR and WTRMLN LMN. Drink it while working out, for an afternoon boost, or as a refreshing start to your day. (Available in stores nationwide or online; $49.99 for a 12-pack.)
An Instagram-worthy superfood lunch in minutes? We’re in. Daily Harvest, a ready-to-blend smoothie delivery service, recently launched its unique line of soups in addition to their frozen smoothie options. Pre-portioning its products for the ultimate convenience factor, Daily Harvest uses carefully crafted combinations of organic, whole, Paleo-friendly superfoods developed by a nutritionist to prioritize health while on-the-go. With rich flavors like Mushroom & Miso, harnessing the restorative properties of adaptogenic mushrooms, it’s no wonder why celebrities such as Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson have described these “daily doses of good” as seriously delicious game-changers for the wellness junkie. (Available online; weekly subscription $7.99 for a 6-pack.)
Start your Sunday Funday with the perfect stack. Foodstirs, a modern baking brand dedicated to the “Clean Baking Revolution,” just launched their Organic Sunday Stacks Pancake Mix for a super nutritious and kid-friendly baking experience. What makes this Foodstir mix stand out from the rest? Ingredients are all organic, chemical-free, and GMO-free, offering a simple-to-make mix that you can feel good about making. Not only free of artificial preservatives and coloring, Foodstirs uses ingredients hand-selected with both quality and ethical sourcing in mind, without sacrificing their integrity for flavor. If ingredients like “organic unbleached heirloom flour” and “organic sunflower oil” don’t inspire you to get out the griddle every Sunday, the fact that there are less than 5 steps for creating fluffy, light pancakes ready in minutes, will. (Available online; $5.99 a mix.)
