I have mentioned on previous posts how happy I am that major grocery stores (like Walmart and Loblaws) now have a lot of organic foods under their own brand (President's Choice, in this case). It makes organics so much more affordable.
And this product is another great example of that. The taste, like many other organic products, is great. I also love that it is much more affordable than my previously favourite quick oats.
I usually have this with soymilk and sometimes blueberries or raspberries. I also occasionally add hemp seeds to give a different flavour and get a serving of protein in. And very rarely, when the sweet crave is strong, I put a bit of maple syrup or honey on top.
The other reason I love this oats so much is because it doesn't have any refined sugar. It's still very hard to find organic breakfast cereal without refined sugar, so this is one of my go-to breakfast meals.
This had become my go-to quick oats until I discovered another one (stay tuned for the post!). I would still recommend this, though, and I occasionally still buy it when it's on sale, or I won't have time to go pick up the other one.

I've been using this tooothpaste for years now, so I thought I'd write a review.
The reason why I chose to buy it initially was because it was the best EWG-rated toothpaste that I could find for sale at well.ca. You can see how good it is in the ingredients list: they are few and all pronounceable.
The paste itself is very different from conventional ones, in that it doesn't foam (but apparently, foaming agents are bad for you, so that's a good thing). That took a little bit of getting used to.
The other thing I noticed with this toothpaste is that it doesn't have that fresh/minty feeling after I brush. As a society we are conditioned to think that our mouth will only be clean if we have that sensation, so it took me a while to get used to this different feeling. Now that I've been using this toothpaste for a while, though, whenever I try a "regular" toothpaste, it tastes really chemical and super harsh on my mouth.
But most important of all, I feel really good using this toothpaste because I know I am taking care of my body.
I highly recommend this toothpaste, and will beep on buying it.
