Cold pressed, unrefined, extra virgin olive oil. I've been using this a lot on my salads lately. I don't buy much salad dressing from the store lately because of all the corn syrup, dairy, and MSG added to them. It's easy and cheap to make at home anyway. I used to use the regular olive oil, but knowing all the benefits of coldpressed extra virgin olive oil I decided to get it and save the other stuff for baking and frying. The first thing I noticed is that it has so much more flavor than the normal kind and now I think I'm hooked forever!
Chia Seed Pudding. I saw the recipe for this originally on Daniel Hampton's Instagram. The recipe seemed super simple and healthy, so I gave it a try. You can mix in some sweetener(honey, stevia, etc.) with it while you make it, but I decided to leave it plain and eat it with fruit. The texture of it seems to go perfectly mixed with fruit, so I think that's my favorite rout when making this. Here's how you make it. 1/4 Chia seeds to 1 cup coconut milk. Mix and put in refrigerator for 2-3 hours(I did it over night). It turned out so good! Let me know what you think, if you try it.
Local Farmer's Market's. This isn't something new for sure, but this year I've been going a lot more than normal. I went to a new local one for the first time and the variety they had impressed me so much. It's amazing how much cheeper some of the stuff is compared to grocery stores too and since I've been trying to eat what's in season, it helps a lot. I also noticed I've been making a lot less trips too the normal grocery stores AND I get to help out local farmers! You just can't go wrong visiting your local farmer's market's a little more!
