Every once in a while, I'll have a craving for crispy, salty French fries but before I satisfy my craving, the guilt of enjoying this favorite American snack takes over and I pass on my craving. I was happy to discover Veggie Fries, which are a great alternative when it comes to French fry cravings.
With three active and busy kids, the Peters family had a challenge—find healthy yet convenient meals the whole family would enjoy. That challenge led Dave and Cristina Peters to create Veggie Fries—nutrient-packed French fries made from farm-grown vegetables, beans, and potatoes. In fact, each 14-oz bag of Veggie Fries boasts nine servings of vegetables! Yes, nine! And, low in sodium, Veggie Fries are also a good source of fiber, packed with protein, plus vitamins A, C, and K.
But that’s not all. Veggie Fries are also gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO verified, and free of the top eight allergens, including wheat, dairy, soy, and nuts.

The creators of Nomva share the simple belief that the food we eat should empower and inspire us.

From it's humble beginnings in 1959, Konditori was opened by Mrs. Frati with the simple idea of serving good 'ol fashioned opened face sandwiches and special recipes from her home of Sweden. They soon hosted many of Hollywood's elite of that era, Gary Cooper came on the second day and it wasn't long after that they would regularly have such notables as William Holden, Glenn Ford, Richard Widmark, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, Rock Hudson, Julie Andrews, Jane Fonda, Gregory Peck, just to name a few. The sauce was used with poached salmon and the gravlax (cured salmon) sandwiches, but everyone wanted it with every single item that was served, even the warm Swedish meatballs. Now a local favorite, the dill sauce became the house tossed salad dressing and customers couldn't get enough of it so they finally put the sauce in jars which is where they are today. Still the same recipe from 55 years ago but with today's standards, Konditori is now Kosher certified and Gluten Free.
