Sometimes it’s hard to trust food these days, with questionable ingredients lurking about. So we’ve created Healthy Magazine’s food guide.

We love this fresh take on popcorn, with spices like coriander, cumin and chilies. We also love that this brand doesn’t carry any strange ingredients or preservatives. They also put probiotics in their popcorn, which is pretty cool.
Find it at most grocery stores or health food stores, or at livingintentions.com.
Love Beets Beet Juice (Healthy Magazine Favorite)
Beets are full of great stuff like antioxidants and nitrates. The Love Beets brand makes juice with no added sugars, artificial colors or preservatives, and it’s awesome. And if you’re a smoothie person, try their 100% pure beetroot powder (the powder is also good for yogurt, sauces, oatmeal, and baked goods).
Find it at select grocery stores, and at lovebeets.com (about $5.00/bottle)
The Pickle Juice Company Pickle Juice Sport
Some people like the taste of pickle juice. Some people hate it. Either way, it can be good at preventing cramps, and as a sports drink in general.
