Try It: Swanson Health Products

Let's face it - we're all incredibly busy these days. But that doesn't mean we want to resort to eating junk when time is tight. One way to make sure you're able to maintain a healthy diet at all times is to keep your pantry stocked with the basics so you always have ingredients on hand to whip up a delicious meal. 

A few months ago, Swanson Health reached out to me to see if I'd be interested in checking out their online shop and trying a few products. Of course I said yes! Healthy products + the convenience of online shopping? Score!


I had heard of the brand but wasn't super familiar with all of their offerings. It turns out the website has thousands of products. Everything from vitamins and supplements to food and cleaning products. There are even beauty products on the site! 

I immediately went to the food section to pick out a few items to stock my pantry. Here I found a great selection of nuts, oils, baking products, protein bars, pasta, grains, soups, and even cookies! I was expecting to pick from just a few products but it was like shopping the aisles of any brick and mortar health food store. 


A few of the things I added to my cart:

  • Pistachios
  • Macadamia nut oil
  • Peanut butter
  • Organic medjool dates
  • Honey
  • Almond flour

I was especially excited about the macadamia nut oil as it's a harder-to-find item. I like drizzling it on salads and pastas to add a nutty flavor. 

It's a good thing I stocked up on these things because I was recently in the mood to bake and found I had all the ingredients I needed to try Running on Veggie's Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies. These cookies are so easy to make - just add dates, peanut butter and 1 egg to a food processor, blend and bake. So simple and so good!



I would order from Swanson again (if you sign up for their email list you'll get discount offers almost daily) for the convenience and selection of products. It's definitely worth checking out - particularly if you don't have health food stores near you or if you don't have time to get to one!

Tell me: What's your go-to health food shop/website?
