Mommy in Pink – Have you heard of Alter Eco Organic and Fair Trade gourmet foods? They have an incredible variety of Fair Trade Certified and USDA Certified organic products ranging from exotic rice, olive oil, chocolate, coffee, sugar and teas.
I recently had a chance to try their Coral Red Jasmine Rice, which was fantastic, their Extra Virgin Olive Oil and my personal favorite…the Organic Dark Chocolate Mint Bar. I was absolutely blown away by the taste and quality of these particular products.
Each and every one of Alter Eco’s products are cultivated using sustainable farming methods using natural fertilizers that are used both for economic reasons, as well as a way to ensure good health for the farmers and the land that they work on.
The Post-It Place – Need a Chocolate fix? Let me just tell you…this stuff is smooth, rich, decadent. And, it only takes a bite and you take care of your needed fix. Seriously, it will satisfy any chocolate craving you might have. Alter Eco’s chocolate bars are made in the pure Swiss tradition from Fair Trade and natural ingredients. For these mouthwatering, soul-quenching bars, Alter Eco has selected fair traded ingredients from distant corners of the world: Fair Trade cocoa from Ghana and Bolivia, unrefined organic Fair Trade sugar from the Philippines, as well as Fair Trade cashews, raisins, and fine Arabica coffee beans. These chocolate bars are 100% natural and do not contain artificial flavors or sweeteners, chemical additives or emulsifiers.
Here at the Post-It Place, we love Jasmine Rice. Since the first time I ever cooked it this whole family has loved it. But here in Hick Town it is hard to find. I have to wait till I make one of those blessed trips to a real grocery store to find anything exotic like Jasmine Rice. But, now I can order it through Alter Eco. It is a scented rice and will smell your whole house with delicious goodness. This unique and natural aroma is a result of the dry, salty soil specific to the Isan plateau in Thailand. Alter Eco Thai White Jasmine Rice can be used as a main dish, a side dish or, as in Thailand, a snack. It is Organic and it is healthy. And, I have to say…they have great prices. I can’t even get it for this price anywhere near here.
I think by now you all know how much I love me some good Olive Oil. I love to cook with it. I love to make salad dressings with it. I love to dip bread in it. It is just good all the way around…and so much healthier than most other oils. My favorite is the Robust Olive Oil from Alter Eco. It is GMO free, Gluten free, dairy free, and the vegan oil originates from Rumi olives, native to Palestine. Each bottle directly supports a better life for farming families by having an over 30% increase in farmer revenue over conventional prices. This translates into financing scholarship funds, micro loans for women’s empowerment programs, and olive tree planting.
Alter Eco has many other products available through their website. Check them out to see what healthy product yo can find for you and your family…supporting Farmers and Fair Trade all over the world as you do so.
