The Healthy Shopper Picks for Spring 2012

Randy Boyer and Andrea Donsky are the co-founders of The Healthy Shopper, a coupon book that makes healthy shopping more reasonable.  As someone who uses coupons, the one thing I struggle with is that there are rarely coupons for fresh meat, produce, or even organic products.  There is the one one you find but its usually free fruit when you buy something processed.  If you are trying to cut processed foods out of your life standard coupons are not going to help you out to much.

In steps The Healthy Shopper!  A great coupon book full out coupons for some amazing products that I had the pleasure of trying out!

Organic Juices

Kiju juice, delicious, the kids loved it, and it comes from only 100% organic fruit, pesticide free and no added sugar or color!
NatraCare Breathable Panty Liners
Natracare, healthier by nature.  A line of totally organic feminine products.  They work just as well as any other brand full of chemicals but they are 100% organic.  When you are putting something inside of your body, you certainly don't want it full of chemicals.  With things like Toxic Shock Syndrome out there you certainly want to think a little bit more about what you are using.

Simply Natural Organic, a line of organic food products.  They make ketchup, pasta sauce, salsa, mustard, vinegrettes and more.  We tried the pasta sauce and it made the other brands taste bland and boring.  It was so good, and of course good for you.

Ecover, a line of natural cleaners.  I tried the dish soap and loved it, I have tried a few natural dish soaps that just don't work.  They don't bubble, don't cut grease and just don't work but now Ecover.  It worked great.  Now that we have a dishwasher I don't do dishes by hand a lot anymore though.  The Ecover dishwasher tabs have been used for the last month.  I really didn't think that they would work, there are no commercials about them, you don't really hear about them.  Holy man, they have been in my dishwasher daily.  Pasta, scallop potatoes, chicken on a cookie sheet, dried cereal on bowls, everything has come out sparkling!  I couldn't believe it.  They are awesome. 

You can check out the Healthy Shopper here and you can look at whats in the coupon book here.  You can even print some coupons off right here.  I looked through it and there are some good coupons in there.  I still would like to find coupons for apples and oranges and regular old milk but in time :)

There are some other great aspects on this site.  They have some great recipes on their as well as some other product reviews. Randy Boyer and Andrea Donsky even have a great new book out, Unjunk your Junk Food, check it out with a cup of coffee and let me know what you think!

Thank you for including Ecover on your Healthy Shopper Picks list! We're glad the Dishwashing Liquid worked well ... and were especially thrilled to hear your pleasantly-surprised reaction to the effectiveness of the Dishwasher Tablets! Thank you for taking the time to try the products and to review them so thoroughly!
