Cooking and Pairing with Culinary Lavender

Lavender in food may seem like an acquired taste, but when used properly and paired with the right ingredients, it can enhance flavours while also providing calming benefits of the herb. Bonnieheath Estate Lavender in Waterford, Ontario has many products ranging for bath and body, and culinary uses. I recently...

A probiotic and digestive enzyme in one product.

Digestive enzymes and probiotics a definite essentials for good gut health. Moreover, digestive enzymes in particular don't get enough recognition for their importance. To have both in one supplement such as EcoIdeas Vegan Enzybiotiq might be a game changer for those who need extra digestive support or leaky gut issues....

A high mineral Ayurvedic toothpaste

This is not your average holistic toothpaste but it sure gets the job done. It's also not for everyone. Although I have successfully switched our family toothpastes over to 100% natural varieties, my husband still needs to have the foaming component in order to "feel" fresh. He also needs a...

Pure-Lé Naturla Liquid Chlorophyll is a winner with ten year old!

I'm not a big fan of liquid chlorophyll so I wasn't sure what to make out this one, until my ten year old daughter tried Pure-lé Natural Liquid Green Chlorophyll Detox in Mint flavour. She LOVED it. What a great way to get your kids to drink water, get some...

A sea salt for an acquired taste

This is an interesting one. I love good quality sea and himalayan salts and appreciate what they can add to a recipe. EcoIdea's Fine Black Salt is not something I would usually go for in that it is infused with the Salsola Stocksii plant. Truth be told, I couldn't find...

Kaley's Barbecue Kale Chips are a Busy Mom's Dream Come True!

THIS is a great snack! Kale chips in general are an easy snack to make but I often struggle to find the time to make them on a regular basis. As well, homemade ones tend to lose their freshness, so I find I am in a hurry to eat them...

Finally you don't have to go to Siberia for a good quality Ginseng

When Farmaroot’s 100% Natural Canadian Ginseng arrived, I was super excited for all the things I could make with it, especially during these cold months. Used in traditional Chinese medicine, there aren’t many people who haven’t heard of the root and its therapeutic benefits. But for a reminder, here are...

Nagi Makaroons (I've seen bigger).

Ok. I know we all want convenience and natural together, but when it comes to buying two small power balls at almost $5.00 a package, it’s a hard no for me. They tasted…ok. I tried both the chocolate almond and the vanilla almond. A little too much sea salt for...

Feel good about chewing gum again!

I used to be a big fan of gum. It calmed my nerves and kept me from biting my nails. I let go of buying gum years ago once I understood about the chemicals and harmful toxins that I was consuming. I have also tried many different “natural” gums and...

I've got a Good Gut Feeling from Fermented Vegan Protein

Protein powders are an ideal way to directly repair your muscles after exercise and an easy fix when alternate protein sources aren’t available. But a fermented protein powder is unique in that the bacteria in the protein is broken down and therefore allows for better absorption in the body. This...

Pink Salt is a Non-toxic Salt

I’m a big fan of sea salts. Salts in general have exploded on the market and it isn’t always clear what the benefits are. I think it goes without saying these days that iodized salt should be avoided due to the high chemical processing involved. Sea salt comes from (you...

It's All About that Fat: Raw Avocado Oil

The Versatility of Coconut Flower Nectar

Coconut Flower Nectar is becoming another alternative sweetener, and for good reasons. Amber in colour with a consistency similar honey, it is ideal for teas and drinks, smoothies, baking, or simply drizzled as a syrup over your favourite foods (I’m thinking oatmeal). Packed with an abundance of nutrients and B...

Rice Bran Oil is gaining attention for high nutritional value and versatility

I am amazed at how many healthy oils EcoIdeas carries and their Organic Rice Bran Oil is no exception. It’s an oil that I didn’t know existed and another fantastic option for high heat cooking. Common in a lot of Asian countries and used for frying, it has only gained...

I’m not vegan by any stretch, but I am always looking for more plant-based options. EcoIdeas Organic Shredded Plain Jackfruit is a unique alternative -  and for someone who at times struggles with creating new vegan additions, this helps in a variety of ways. Native to southwest India, jackfruit is...

Green Coffee Does NOT Replace My Coffee

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am always looking for a good coffee alternative. I love coffee but I also opt for reducing my caffeine load when I can. Sadly, I felt that this product fell short on the taste-o-meter. Part of the appeal of coffee for so...

Cooling things down with some Tiger Nut Oil

I have previously posted about tiger nuts and all of their benefits and uses. What I didn’t know is that tiger nuts can also be expressed into an oil. EcoIdeas carries a 100% pure cold pressed oil from Spain. That’s great! But what do I do with it? As soon...
