Merriment is definitely in the air! Can you feel it too! It’s officially time for conversation over a cup of hot cocoa, cozy socks, ugly sweaters and CHOCOLATE. This month, our food experts from Martie have put together a list of top ‘must haves’ food items in your pantry to help you sort your holiday meal planning while saving big. Because even though we put a lot of attention on our big holiday meals, you still need to eat the rest of the week too! Did we mention we have CHOCOLATE in addition to the below pantry staples?
Alter Eco has it all! Melt-in-your-mouth truffles, compostable packaging, organic, and did we mention delicious? Bring these truffles literally anywhere over the holiday season and impress your friends. Or don't, and keep them just for you as you watch Hallmark movie #23.
If you are someone who wants olives on all dishes (like us!), these pitted Spanish olives with tomatoes are just the pick. Break the old snacks routine and experience the flavor of love. There’s no holding back, when the Spanish olives come to do the flamenco onto your plate.
Planning on an easy authentic Italian meal for dinner? Try out Colavita’s Potato Gnocchi. It’s rich flavor and classic structure make it a perfect addition to an evening meal. Enjoy it best with a rich pesto sauce. It’s truly delicious.
Trust us when we say Caesar salad grazing boards are the latest food craze! Bring your food game on with some chicken, bacon, cheese and Yo Mama’s caesar dressing. Why do we recommend Yo Mama’s caesar dressing - because it has no dairy, no artificial ingredients, no preservatives, and it’s gluten-free! No need to sacrifice your diet while enjoying this dressing.
If you are in the mood for some warm Thai curry, perfect for those cold winter nights, try out the Massaman curry from Mike’s Organic Curry Love. Strong spices like cardamom, cinnamon, cumin along with ingredients more commonly used in native Thai cuisine such as chili peppers, coriander, lemongrass, galangal, shallots are the secret to this authentic fusion curry. A must try for the love of curry.
Here comes everybody’s favorite section - desserts! One of the key baking essentials is sugar that binds the muffin and the cake. Hence, selecting the right sugar brand is crucial to have a smooth flavorsome bake. Nutiva’s unrefined organic coconut sugar is made from fresh coconut tree sap and hence it’s low on fructose. A 100% must have while experimenting with your baking skills.
We are ending this list with some sweets from Points! Rainbow Chocolate candies are made with natural coloring. Which means it resembles classic rainbow candies but with no artificial sugar or additives. A perfect low-sugar snack for your next road trip!
