These days, it seems like drink cases are stocked with cold brew as far as the eye can see. But this Califia Farms single-serving cold-brew coffee bottle swaps coconut cream for milk. It also includes 2mg of MCT oil (a fatty acid chain often found in coconut oil that's said to have health benefits, like improving digestion and your mood), which Stein said serve as a "vegan version of [the very trendy] Bulletproof coffee which is made with butter and coconut oil." Ideally, you'll get all the brain-boosting benefits of the butter-filled Bulletproof coffee without consuming all that dairy.
When you think of the Paleo diet, you might think of steak and cauliflower rice served atop one of those boxes CrossFitters do jumps onto. But with the power of almond flour and ingredients like tapioca, cassava, and sunflower oil, Simple Mills has turned the traditional cracker into a cleaner, Paleo-friendly snack, Stein says. Currently, Whole Foods stocks flavors like Farmhouse Cheddar, Rosemary & Sea Salt, and Sun-dried Tomato & Basil. And this isn't the last you'll be seeing of Simple Mills in the store -- other, presumably almond-filled, Simple Mills products are slated to hit shelves next spring.
In the boxed mac & cheese world, people generally think of Annie's as a healthier version of Kraft's gold-standard mac. So it's a big deal when a new version of Annie's mac hits shelves. This version features bee-shaped pasta, which tastes delicious and will be less painful than consuming actual bees. The cheese powder, which is made from certified organic dairy, is also a draw for shoppers -- but don't worry, it still has that bright-orange color everyone has come to love.
