I’m starting something new this year!!

Each month I’ll be reviewing a few products I’ve tried and rated based on taste and ingredients. I’m always trying random products so that I can know what to recommend to clients, so this is just me letting you in on the process! I hope this will introduce you to some new products you may like, as well as save you a few bucks by avoiding those I didn’t! 🙂

I’ll also note if it will fit into various nutrition therapy protocols, such as gluten-free, elimination diet for food sensitivities, etc.

Comment if you have a product you’d like me to try or a category you’d like me to add to the review. 🙂

Is Campbell’s Well Yes! brand actually better? Ever wondered whether Boom Chicka Pop is healthy? Or is macadamia milk good? Here goes:

1. Campbell’s Well Yes! Roasted Chicken with Wild Rice

Campbell’s Well Yes! Roasted Chicken with Wild Rice Soup
Taste: 6 (To me, it tasted like a normal canned soup. I added sriracha.)

Ingredients: 6 (Great whole ingredients, but it does contain carrageenan, which some research suggests may be harmful to the gut lining)

Dairy Free

X Not gluten free

X Not appropriate for Food Sensitivity Elimination Diet

Overall Rating: 6

2. BOOMCHICKAPOP Real Butter Microwave Popcorn

BOOMCHICKAPOP Real Butter Microwave Popcorn
Taste: 8.5 (Tasted like it was supposed to! Buttery!)

Ingredients: 8 (Simple ingredient list. The palm oil is expeller pressed, which is good, and it is lower in saturated fat than palm kernel oil. But it is not clear whether it is sustainable. For more on sustainable palm oil, click here.)

Certified Gluten Free

X Not dairy free

X Not appropriate for Food Sensitivity Elimination Diet

Overall Rating: 8.25

3. Milkadamia Unsweetened Vanilla Macadamia Milk

Milkadamia Unsweetened Vanilla Macadamia Milk
Taste: 9 (Much less bitter than almond milk!)

Ingredients: 6 (I like that it’s fortified with calcium, vit D, A, and B12, but I’m not a huge fan of the vague “Natural Flavors.”)

Gluten Free

Dairy Free

X Not appropriate for Food Sensitivity Elimination Diet

Overall Rating: 7.5
