Every month, I highlight products and foods that I am really enjoying. This month, I have five delicious ones to share. Enjoy!
Emile Noel Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil
I love the subtle differences between different oils, so I am always up for trying something new — like this pumpkin seed oil. When I first poured this dark green oil over a green bean dish, I was intrigued. It’s a rich oil, with a stronger flavor. That said, it’s not overpowering and if you love pumpkin seeds the way I do, you will love this. Best used in its raw form, Emile Noel Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil is delicious on salads and drizzled on roasted veggies.
Get It: Available at select Whole Foods Stores in the United States.
Madhava Flip for Flapjacks Pancake Mix and Organic Pancake Syrups
Typically, when it comes time to make pancakes in our house, I make them from scratch. Pancakes only require a few simple ingredients and we generally have them on hand. But sometimes it’s nice to just mix, cook and enjoy — without all the measuring. So when we tried Madhava’s pancake mix, I was so excited. The fluffy pancakes are like homemade without all the work. And the Organic Pancake Syrups from Madhava were a delicious surprise as well. Will adores the Cinnamon Maple Agave Syrup especially.
Get It: I’m seeing these Madhava products more and more — at Whole Foods and grocery stores.
Carrington Farms Coconut Oil
I bet you think I am going to talk about how much I love cooking with this “Pure, Unrefined, Cold Pressed Coconut Oil” — but I am not. Instead, let me tell you how much I love this fabulous organic coconut oil as … facial moisturizer. With super dry skin in the winter, coconut oil is fabulous for restoring the smoothness of my skin and helping it be a little healthier. I spread a little on my face and neck after I shower (love the scent!) and it absorbs in.
Get It: Carrington Farms Coconut Oil is available at Whole Foods, Costco and other stores.
Disclosure: I was provided samples of these items by the companies to try them out. All products were thoroughly sampled before being chosen for the Things I Can’t Get Enough Of feature. Only my very favorites make the cut — so yes, there are plenty of things I tried but didn’t include. All opinions are my own.
