Authentic Product Pick: Drew’s Organic Salsas

 

Drews Salsa

Think you know salsa? Think again. You can’t call yourself a foodie until you try Drew’s Organic Salsas! I recently had the pleasure of trying these salsas out for the first time and I was HOOKED. I promise you…this salsa is so delicious that you will want to eat it right out of the jar. It’s that good! Best of all? Drew’s salsa is organic, vegan, Non-GMO project verified, and gluten-free.

Chef Drew Starkweather founded his company back in 1995. At age 12, he got his first restaurant job and worked his way up to become head chef at the Deerfield Inn in Historic Deerfield, Massachusetts. This was when people began to discover and love his delicious salsa dips and salad dressings. His recipes were so good that customers began requesting bottles and jars to take home! That was when he decided to start making and selling his own product line. Today, Chef Drew has 10 different types of salsas and numerous varieties of salad dressings to choose from. Best of all? They are all healthy and delicious!

Let’s talk about the Drew’s Chipotle Lime Salsa. This is my new obsession and I use it for everything. Not only is it delicious with chips and nachos, it’s wonderful when added to a homemade breakfast burrito. The lime flavor really enhances whatever recipe you use it with, giving it a nice summery taste. I also love that this salsa is not watery and runny, so you can add it to a variety of dishes without flooding your plate. I am also obsessed with Drew’s Quinoa, Flax, and Chia Salsa. Not only are you getting the delicious taste and texture of the salsa, you are getting a variety of nutrients from these added super foods.

Next up, I am loving the medium spiced Thick and Chunky Salsa. Once again, this can be used in a variety of recipes and it will help to compliment the flavors of each ingredient used. It’s loaded with delicious ingredients like organic diced tomatoes, organic onions, and organic jalapenos. Yum! I also had the chance to try out the hot Mango Habanero Salsa and oh boy…was that a treat. If you like spicy food, this is your new go-to salsa! I actually used this on top of a wild-caught halibut fillet and it was delicious! Of course it’s fabulous when dipped with corn tortilla chips as well.

Authentic Product Pick: Dr. Praeger’s Sensible Foods

Dr Praegers Sensible Foods

The other day, I was wandering around the grocery store, trying to decide what to make for dinner. It was later in the afternoon and after a busy day, I didn’t really feel like making something from scratch. So, I did something that I rarely do; I headed for the frozen food aisle to see what types of prepared foods were available. Of course, I found the usual suspects…the TV dinners, frozen pizzas, and microwavable burritos. None of these sounded particularly appetizing at the time. That’s when I stumbled upon the products from Dr. Praegers Sensible Foods. Kale burgers? Broccoli Pancakes? Sign me up!  I had to give them a try.

Dr. Praeger’s Sensible Foods began back in 1994 when Dr. Peter Praeger and his medical partner Dr. Eric Somberg set out on a simple mission. They wanted to create delicious and nourishing foods that people would actually eat! Today, this family owned and operated company has become the leader in the all-natural, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and kosher frozen food categories. How cool is that? There products are available at many stores across the country, including Costco, Whole Foods, and even Trader Joes. If you shop at any of these stores, make sure you pick up some of their products to try. You will love them!

The first product you should pick up is the Dr. Praeger’s Kale Burgers. Even if you aren’t a fan of kale, you will like these burgers. I promise! Packed with nourishing ingredients like quinoa, kale and 9 other different types of vegetables, these patties are destined to create one delicious tasting burger. If kale just isn’t your thing, be sure to try the Dr. Praeger’s California Burgers. These yummy patties are packed with carrots, zucchini and edamame. Yum!

The next product I absolutely love is the Dr. Praeger’s Broccoli Littles. Even though they are made for kids, there isn’t any reason why you can’t enjoy them as a healthy side dish! I pair them with my veggie burgers instead of using traditional french fries. These Broccoli Littles are like healthy tator tots but packed with healthy ingredients like broccoli, potatoes, and onions. Best of all? These tasty little treats are gluten-free. Dr. Praeger’s Sensible Foods also sells amazing Spinach Littles and Sweet Potato Littles that your kids will love as well.

So, the next time you are at the store, head to the frozen foods aisle and pick up a bunch of Dr. Praeger’s products. Keep them in your freezer for the next time you want a quick, nourishing, and easy meal that your whole family will enjoy.
