Palm Done Right

[ 0 ] August 16, 2017 |

“Palm can be grown for good.” I did not know there was a problem but this tagline made me curious.  The campaign known as “Palm Done Right” is actually just a culmination of brands working together to show how “Palm Done Right” protects the environment, supports small farmers and provides customers with healthy and organic alternatives to conventional products.  We like.

About 20 brands across the U.S. are working to partner with brands in Europe to make this campaign a success. “Palm Done Right” began as a grassroots movement out of Boulder, CO with palms that were grown in Ecuador and Sierra Leone.  Some of the brands that make up the campaign are Quinn Snacks (SB:  love, love, love their Parmesan & Rosemary popcorn!), Nutiva, La Tortilla Factory and Luke’s Organic.  The brands that make us want to join the movement are below.  Happy, clean, healthy, Palm, eating!

Aunt Patty’s Red Palm Oil: Light enough that my stir-fry remains on the healthy side instead of a greasy bowl of veggies, this oil stands up to the heat needed for this dish.  Because the oil is low on flavor, you can have fun with your spices and herbs cabinet.  Use it has the base to your fry pan.

Kaila Organic Stir-Fry Oil: Another light, stir-fry oil that does not put your veggies to nutritional sleep.  I would use as a saute go-to or a classic salad dressing base paired with a balsamic viniagerette.

La Tortilla Factory Organic Tortillas: THESE!  Fajita night has changed indefinitely.  Out with the old, in with these tortillas that taste nothing like the usual organic suspects.  They usually taste like bland pieces of cardboard that make you miss the white tortilla shells that you wanted in the first place.  These bundles of joy do just the opposite.
