Carrington Farms is one of our favorite sources for great tasting, versatile Coconut Oil, as I've told you about before.
Their Unflavored Liquid Coconut Cooking Oil is All-Natural, Gluten-Free, Hexane-Free, and Non-GMO, It is a great alternative to traditional oils like vegetable, olive, canola, corn, especially for those with food allergies! With no coconut odor, it also has a higher heat point than traditional olive oils, so you can use it in more ways than you though possible, from sautéing to baking!
The perfect accompaniment to your favorite recipes, yogurts, parfaits, smoothies and more, Carrington’s Organic Flax Hemp PAKS are packed in a portable and convenient single-serve packet with a pre-measured daily dosage. Each pak serves as an abundant source of Omega 3's, protein and fiber. With no refrigeration necessary, ready-to-eat Flax Hemp Paks can be used at any time! It’s naturally gluten-free, contains no Cholesterol and is very low in carbohydrates.
Now how about a great recipe from Carrington Farms, using both of these great products, that is perfect for 'testing out' before the holidays get here! The same recipe could easily be expanded to a small turkey breast,or pork tenderloin, if you are having a intimate holiday dinner!
