We cooked it, baked it, ate it. Here are 30 new items to refresh your pantry with to start a cleaner diet in the new year. This past year there wasn't a day we weren't talking to, meeting new food makers or making food with their products in our test kitchen.

The verdict? These are the food makers that changed our eating habits and diet this past year for the better. With healthier, cleaner options -- no preservatives, all natural ingredients (locally sourced ingredients whenever possible or farm direct) -- these food makers elevated the flavor in our dishes and improved our well-being.

Our list includes four farms from which you're getting fresh food direct. It also includes food makers that go directly to their local farms to source their ingredients, expert artisans crafting exceptional new flavor and health into categories of food like chips and tomato sauce that have grown boring over the years in other markets, and small batch food makers making food that never sits in a warehouse.

Plus, there is something more to these food makers. They are small businesses with incredible love not only for their products but their customers. That is the secret to great food. Each one has a story that needs to be tasted.
