Clean Eating - - BITS & BITES FOODIE FAVES - BY LAURA SCHOBER

1. FLOUR POWER

The sprouted wheat in One De­gree Or­ganic Foods Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour ac­ti­vates es­sen­tial en­zymes and is nat­u­rally richer in pro­tein and cer­tain vi­ta­mins and min­er­als such as fo­late and vi­ta­min B6. Use in recipes like breads, pizza crusts and naan. $6, onede­gree­or­gan­ics.com 2. A BET­TER BUT­TER

Vital Farms Pas­ture-Raised Al­fresco But­ter Un­salted comes from grass-fed Jer­sey and Guernsey cows. This slow-churned option is higher in but­ter­fat and lower in wa­ter than other but­ters on the mar­ket. Its plas­tic­ity makes it great for achiev­ing light, flaky re­sults in bak­ing and pas­tries. $4, vi­tal­farms.com for where to buy

3. A HEALTH­IER OIL

A purer re­place­ment for pro­cessed veg­etable oils, Car­ring­ton Farms Liq­uid Co­conut Cook­ing Oil works well in higher-heat bak­ing and cook­ing (up to 350°F). This neu­tralfla­vored oil comes in a BPA-free bot­tle. $14 per 16 oz, car­ring­ton­farms.com 4. SWEET HIT
