The Street (and syndicated by MSN) comprised a list of health-conscious gifts for Mother’s Day for any budget explaining, “from fitness trackers to healthy food, gifts that enhance and support good health are not only sincere and sweet, they keep mom in better shape.”

The product write up states, “Love quinoa, hate waiting the 40ish minutes it takes to cook? This snack’s for you. It’s already toasted, so you can grab it by the handful and nosh on it like you would popcorn. Really, really, really tiny bits of popcorn. You can pick up a bag at Walmart or order online at carringtonfarms.com.”

Add Chia to Your Cookies
Chia seeds add fiber, omega-3s, potassium, iron, and calcium to your baked goods. The folks at Carrington Farms recommend adding 2 tablespoons of the seeds to your batter for every dozen cookies or muffins. (For more ideas, check out these Quick and Easy Chia Seed Recipes.)

Phil Lempert (aka The Supermarket Guru) reviewed Carrington Farms Sriracha Liquid Coconut Cooking Oil where he rated the product as a “HIT” with a score of 90 out of 100!
Review: This is a good idea, finally a good use of sriracha. It adds just the right amount of burn to the oil and has a great flavor. I know that coconut oil is popular, but I’m still not a fan. The mouthfeel is a bit to oily for me. I’d like to see them do this with olive oil instead. According to the company this oil has 4 times more medium chain triglycerides than regular coconut oil. As with all oils it is 100% fat, 14 grams of fat per tablespoon and has 130 calories. If you are a fan of coconut oil and want to add zing to your foods – this is it. Imported from the Philippines.
