Carrington Farm Organics
I love blogging about healthy, quality products so I thought Carrington Farms would be a great fit because all of their products are certified organic and non-GMO. Carrington Farms, founded in 1999, offers tea, flax, chia, hemp, coconut oil and other natural food products to the health conscience consumer.
“Our comprehensive line of flax and coconut oil products serves a range of purposes, from conditioning hair and nails to weight loss and staving off chronic disease. From our pure whole seed flax to our chia blends and cold-pressed organic extra virgin coconut oil, all of Carrington Farms’ vitamin and mineral-full health food products are a great way to start adding a little more nutrition to your everyday life!”
Carrington Farms Organic Coconut Oil
I love coconut oil. I mean, I could just eat it with a spoon! I know that is naughty but true. Carrington Farm’s cold-pressed Organic Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil is simply pressed and bottled so it retains its original nutrient content, flavor and color. Carrington Farms extra-virgin coconut oil is certified organic, has no trans & hydrogenated fats, and is perfect for healthy high heat cooking up to 350 F. You can use coconut oil as a healthy and delicious replacement for butter or fat; sauteed vegetables, roast sweet potatoes, add to smoothies or mix into cereal. I use it in baked goods all the time. I also use coconut oil on my dry winter skin and it is supposed to be great for hair too. Coconut Oil turns into a liquid at 76 degrees F or higher.
Carrington Farms also offers Liquid Coconut Cooking Oil, which is the first of its kind. Liquid Coconut cooking oil is a healthy and great alternative to traditional oils such as vegetable, olive, canola, and corn oil. The Carrington Farms Coconut Cooking Oil is naturally rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) which are efficiently utilized by the body for energy production and helps aid in calorie burning. The Carrington Farms Liquid Coconut Cooking Oil contains 5 times more MCT’s than traditional virgin coconut oil and retains all the health benefits. Coconut cooking oil is all natural, gluten free, hexane free, NON-GMO, free of hydrogenated and trans fats and comes in a BPA free bottle. Coconut cooking oil is perfect for cooking, sautéing, and baking. The oil retains all the health benefits of traditional coconut oil but is odorless and flavorless, and the bonus part is that it remains liquid. I used it in my pumpkin bread this year and it made measuring and pouring more easy in the liquid form.
Carrington Farms Organic Flax Seeds
“Whether you have a family history of certain cancers, are beginning to experience the symptoms of arthritis, or are simply trying to slim down for bikini season, flax seed benefits your immune system, metabolism, and more! The vitamins, lignans, fatty acids, and phytochemicals in flax, combined with its low amount of carbohydrates, make this tiny seed bigger than the sum of its parts when it comes to your well-being.”
My mom always ground up fresh flax seeds and sprinkled them onto my oatmeal. She also used them in baking. They are good for the brain and they are great fiber too, she told me. I use flax seeds in the same way and I also like them sprinkled over yogurt. Carrington Farms prides themselves in having premium quality flax seeds and they have several options for how you may want to eat them such as Flax/Chia blend, Flax/Hemp blend, and individual serving packages.
Carrington Farms Chia Seeds
I became familiar with chia seeds when my husband ordered some awhile back to start drinking to give him more energy for running. Chia seeds have become recognized as a sought after, nourishing “superfood”, loaded with beneficial properties that support a healthy lifestyle. These tiny seeds are the richest plant source of Omega 3’s, containing more Omega 3’s than salmon. Chia is high in fiber, has more calcium by weight than milk, is high in iron, potassium, folate, phosoporus, magnesium and manganese. Plus, chia seeds are one of nature’s highest plant based sources of a complete protein and are extremely high in antioxidants. The Carrington Farms Chia Seeds are naturally gluten free and can be added to salads, cereal, yogurt and smoothies or made into a gel shot for quick energy and hydration! I think they are pretty fun to drink in gel shot form, don’t taste like much, and are loaded with good stuff.
