Food Product Reviews: The Short List

February 20, 2012

Olivia’s Organics: Olivia’s puts together a variety of spring mixes that are packaged locally, and donate a portion of their proceeds to Olivia’s Organics Charitable Foundation. These mixes rock! They stay fresh for weeks, the packaging is 100% recyclable and BPA free, and the packaging is made in the U.S. powered by renewable resources.

Nayonaise: An eggless, soy-based alternative to mayonaise, and it truly tastes amazing! Nayonaise is made by Nasoya and is a based out of Massachusetts… a bonus for us New Englanders.

Daiya Cheese: Daiya makes shredded cheddar, mozzarella, and pepper jack cheeses that are free of dairy and soy. It is made with cassava and arrowroot, and melts fairly well.

Follow Your Heart Cheese: Luckily the vegetarian food industry has really boomed, and we are the beneficiaries. Preferences for vegan cheeses are particular to each individual, but this company out of Canoga Park, California is worth checking out.

Tofutti Cream Cheese and Dairy Slices: Tofutti is another awesome company with a TON of products. They put out a variety of different dairy-free ice cream, and frozen treats, as well as cream cheese, cheese slices, sour cream, and frozen pizzas. So many options, and very easy to like.

Field Roast Grain Meat Co: Field Roast provides all kinds of grain meat products including frankfurters, sausages, and meat loaf. Another perk is their use of the word meat, which was never intended to refer only to animal based meats. Meat originally referred to food in general, typically in the solid form.
