Living Without's Favorites: Seeing Red

Nutiva offers two new dairy-free replacements for butter and conventional shortening that contain unrefined red palm oil. Produced from the fleshy fruit of the palm tree, red palm oil is naturally more nutritious (higher levels of antioxidant vitamins A and E) than palm kernel oil. Nutiva’s Buttery Spread, a blend of red palm oil and virgin coconut oil, delivers a buttery flavor and can be used in any way you’d enjoy butter. Nutiva’s Shortening, also made with red palm oil and virgin coconut oil, has a neutral taste that’s ideal for flaky pie crusts and crispy cookies. These wholesome products are gluten-free, organic, vegan, non-GMO with no soy, dairy or trans-fat.   More...

Living Without's Favorites: Crispy Pizzas

We love Better 4U’s Gluten-Free Pizzas, a line of frozen pizzas that comes with plentiful toppings and ultra-crispy crusts. These pizzas are notable for their delicious texture and flavor. But here’s more: buckwheat, flax and brown rice flour boost the nutritional value of the crust. Varieties include pepperoni and mozzarella (with uncured pepperoni); four cheese (mozzarella, provolone, asiago and Parmesan blend); roasted vegetable with mozzarella; and Mediterranean (roasted red peppers, artichokes, roasted red onions, Kalamata olives, spinach, oregano and feta). There’s also a vegan pie with roasted vegetables (red and yellow peppers, eggplant, red onion, spinach, artichokes) that contains dried tomatoes and dairy-free cheese. Terrific any way you slice ’em.   More...
