Sweeten and Flavour all in one step!

April 20, 2020 Report

Please select a reason

I recently received Ecoideas Ginger Coconut Sugar and I absolutely LOVE it! I have so many recipes that call for ginger, and this all-natural sugar also contains organic ginger. I used this to sweeten a curry I made and it added that hint of sweet and spice all at the same time.

As a Mom of three, I'm always looking for ways to save time when cooking and this is the ultimate two-for-one.

To make my curry, I used the following ingredients:

1 tsp coconut oil

1 onion, chopped

3 carrots, chopped

2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

1/2 cup broth/water

1 handful asparagus, ends removed and chopped

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup sweet peas

1 handful spinach

For the curry sauce:

1 can full fat coconut milk

1 tbsp curry powder

1 tsp tumeric powder

pinch red pepper flakes

2 tsp Ecoideas ginger coconut sugar

salt and pepper to taste


I cooked the onions in some coconut oil and added the chopped carrots and sweet potato.

I added some broth (you could add water) to let the vegetables cook down a bit more. 

I then added the curry powder, tumeric and red pepper flakes and let that cook another minute or two.

Add in the coconut milk, sugar, salt and pepper, chickpeas, and asparagus.

Once everything is thoroughly cooked and the sauce is thick, I added the peas and spinach, just to wilt.

Serve over rice and enjoy!

The Ultimate Superfood!

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts are my absolute favourite food. I eat them everyday, whether it's in my smoothie or oatmeal in the morning, or in a salad, soup or yogurt parfait. I love how I can digest so much fibre, plant protein, and healthy fats from one product.

The best jam-and it's Canadian!

I know all jams contain sugar, but Crofter's JUST FRUIT jam is sweetened with concentrated fruit juice, making it 100% fruit. If you're going to have jam, this is the one. Not to mention it's run by the same family that started it years ago and it's made right here...

Chips that contain protein? You bet!

We all love a good chip, and this one really satisfies. Not only do they come in a range of flavours, but they have the crunch to keep you happy, and the protein to keep you full! Win-win!

Red is the New Green!

Don't get me wrong-I love my greens, but they're a bit of a harder sell when it comes to my family. But this superfood? The kids will drink their vitamins with no coaxing whatsoever-and I'm right there with them! It's delicious, easy to drink, and so so good for you!

Not right for me...

With very fine hair, it is difficult for me to use a serum that doesn't weight it down. While I love the ingredients in this product and the delightful scent, I think my hair is too fine to use it. I think this would be perfect for thick or curly...
