I opened up one of these behemoth bad boys for no-bakes today, and the peanut butter inside tasted and smelled great just by itself. Promising review: “Until I tried pink salt, I never realized regular salt is so harsh. The flavor of this salt is mild and subtle, and I use this stuff in everything. It makes everything I prepare taste better, and people compliment the flavor all the time. Promising review: “Hemp protein is a powerhouse of protein and nutrition and is so very easily consumed, because it can simply be added to things you already eat. It’s fantastic, for example, in your morning smoothies, and you can sneak it in without your spouse or kids even knowing they are consuming something healthy.
We bought these to compliment an antique display we had purchased. Wide variety of healthy snacks. If you use a lot of shredded skim mozzarella or cheddar, buying them in bulk will save money and ensure you can improvise dinner with things you have on-hand. Use them for baking, as a healthier filler for meatloaf or crab cakes, or for overnight oatmeal. A good example of this for my family would be oats.
Bulk food stores are a good solution to the problems of plastic waste, food waste, and soaring grocery bills. But the flip side of bulk-buying means that you’ll have ingredients on hand for much longer before needing to restock. For that reason it’s important to choose foods that last. EcoWatch published a list of the best healthy foods to buy in bulk, and I’d like to share some of their suggestions below, as well as a few of my own. I like this list because it challenges assumptions about expiration dates being the final word on when a food is safe to eat. In most cases, a food can last longer than we think, as long as it’s stored properly. Still, it’s always a good idea to check with a source such as the FoodKeeper app or Eat by Date, if in doubt. Dried beans and lentils are among those few foods whose shelf life is listed as “indefinite” on the Eat by Date website. This is because their nutritional value does not deteriorate with time, although they will lose moisture after years in the pantry and need longer to soak and cook.
