Hello everyone. Staying healthy and on the move is a chore sometimes. I find it hard to get motivated off the long winter that we all have had. Carrington Farms has has made it easy to stay healthy throughout the year and start off your summer right. Being part of the #CarringtonMayontheMove has really shown me wonderful ways that I can stay healthy while eating those wonderful foods that I still love, Carrington-May-on-the-Mover-BadgeBy getting the nutrients that your body needs. Since 1999, Carrington Farms has made delicious, 100% organic, non-genetically modified health food products accessible to nutrition-conscious consumers and what makes these products perfect for the average consumer is that the packs are individually portioned and ready to go.

Included in the pack is the Flax, Flax Hemp, Flax Chia and Coconut Oil Paks. What makes these packs so brilliant is that they are proportioned packs, this not only makes them perfect for home use, but when you’re traveling. You could use them in restaurants, airports and hotels. Any situation you find yourself in.

I actually had the pleasure to try these prepackaged packs out and I have to say that not only are all the products of a great quality, but Carrington Farms being prepackaged really takes a lot of guess-work out of making sure that you get the proper amount of each in your diet. My husband and I use a lot of Coconut oil. In almost everything we cook daily we use coconut oil. Coconut oil is a great replacement for butter or fat. Next time you are sauteing vegetables, roasting sweet potatoes, or even whipping up some baked goods with your family, try replacing the butter, with coconut oil. The first time I switched out butter for coconut oil, my husband gave me the strangest look. Like I had lost my mind! To his surprise, you can’t taste coconut, nor is there a smell of coconut. So no worries about your dishes being coco for coconuts!

I think another product in this pack is something that most people would not think about putting into their home cooked meals and that is the Flax Chia seed. If you look up the benefits of flax, the great ones that really stick out in my mind are the benefits it has to your heart and giving your metabolism a boost. Not only does flax offer those benefits, but is it also a great source for Omega-3’s, fiber, antioxidants, protein, and minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc. So you might be wondering what in the world do I put my new Carrington Farms Flax Chia Paks in? I thought that I would share an amazing recipe with you to try. I actually made my picky husband try these out for me. Since the grilling season is upon us, I thought a great burger recipe was in order. I had to make my husband try these of course, because, I am a no meat kinda girl. You could certainly add the Flax Chia Paks, to a veggie burger or turkey burger.
