Avocado toast, 6 ways!

posted on January 10th, 2019 by Dani Fogel

There are very few foods out there that are equally as delicious for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but we’re very grateful that avocado toast is one of them! This healthy food trend is definitely here to stay, so we’ve outlined a few of the most craveable ways to enjoy the ever so popular and even more addicting "avo toast". The green fruit, that honestly tastes and spreads like some kind of healthy green butter, is packed with nutritional benefits like good-for-you, heart-healthy fats, fiber, and potassium. Paired with whole-grain or gluten-free bread and some creative toppings, avocado toast is a meal that allows you to show off your inner chef and will have you feeling completely satisfied with just minimal effort in the kitchen. 1.

A runny yolk adds multi-dimensional flavor and even more health benefits, like a boost… Read More

A Lesson in Winter Citrus Fruits

posted on January 8th, 2019 by Dani Fogel

If you’re looking to add a little brightness to these cold winter months, you’re not alone. Although a variety of fruits peak in their sweetness and juiciness in the summertime, citrus shines in all its glory in January and February.  And a huge health bonus for you - citrus fruits are rich in potassium, fiber, and vitamin C, which can act as an immunity booster to keep you from catching a pesky winter cold. From funny-looking Sumo Mandarins to tangy Texas Grapefruit to gourmet Meyer lemons, we have every citrus variety you could ever dream of in our stores right now, all from our trusty and loyal farmers who bring us only the best fruit each and every year. Here's your guide to everything Winter citrus - the look, taste, and texture of the fruits plus recipe tips for a few as well. Mandarins Mandarin oranges are a small, loose-skinned variety that are typically sweet juice bombs much less acidic than a common orange. There are many types of Mandarin oranges… Read More

6 Winter Whisk(e)ys to Wet Your Whistle

posted on January 3rd, 2019 by Dani Fogel

Winter is here to stay for a while, and let’s face it; sometimes a cozy sweater just doesn’t cut it. If you’re looking for ways to warm up from the inside out, look no further than these beautifully smoky and smooth whiskeys (and whisky) to wet your whistle and sip on alongside some friends, all from the comfort of home. But first, a brief lesson... what exactly is the difference between whiskey and whisky? It mostly comes down to where the liquor was made. Whisky without the “e” is considered a Scotch whisky, though it’s sometimes distilled in Canada or Japan. Irish and American whiskeys on the other hand, are usually spelled with the “e.” Now that we’ve covered that tidbit of knowledge, let’s get into some of our favorite varieties. The Macallan, 12 year Single Malt Scotch Whisky This highly esteemed single malt Scotch whisky is revered all over the world. It’s delightfully smooth, with notes of dried fruit and sherry and a balance of woodsmoke… Read More

Easy Weeknight Roasted Veggies

posted on January 2nd, 2019 by Leslie Thomas

The New year means getting back on track with a lot of things in life. Back on the grind at the 9-5, back to the gym, and back to healthier eating. But just because the holiday season is over doesn't mean that things are slowing down for all of us. A busy work and home life can still lead to deceptively healthy take-out, which will prevent us from fulfilling those healthier living new year's resolutions. We're here to help. May we suggest an all too easy and oh-so simple weeknight dinner? A hot and juicy hormone and antibiotic-free rotisserie chicken from our stores paired with easy and oh, so flavorful roasted vegetables. Because roasting vegetables like carrots, squash, and potatoes is what you do in the chilly Winter months. Ingredients: 2 lb Yukon Gold potatoes 2 lb. Rainbow carrots, peeled and cut on a bias 2 tablespoons olive or grapeseed oil 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely cut 1 tablespoon Rosemary, finely cut 1 tablespoon butter Salt and… Read More

Meal Prep Like a Pro in 2019

posted on January 1st, 2019 by Leslie Thomas

We get it; takeout and processed foods are just so much easier. Cooking a wholesome meal is sometimes the last thing we have time for. You’ve probably heard of meal prepping - it’s a health trend that got popular a few years ago and has stuck around - for good reason. Meal prepping makes eating healthy easy and quick, week after week. But there’s a misconception about the trend - you don’t have to eat the same thing everyday. You can absolutely mix-and-match your meals with just a few variations in sauces, toppings, and sides. That way it never gets boring and it's easier to stay on track. All is takes is some patience in the kitchen and just a couple of hours (3 hours, max if you're not much of a cook) and you've got a week's worth of healthy lunch and dinners that won't break the bank or upset your taste buds either. We suggest going through the meal prep on Sundays, when you're least likely to have work or social obligations. So go grab your favorite glass… Read More
