Winter Citrus

posted on February 22nd, 2017 by Lauren Murphy

There is a lot to love about winter in California, but our very favorite thing is the abundance of fresh and delicious Winter Citrus: sweet Sumo mandarins, bright Persian limes and everything in between. Add these ripe citruses to your drinks, salads, and or enjoy on their own! NAVEL ORANGES Navel oranges are the happy little “belly-button” oranges you’ll find in our produce section when the weather cools. Pretty much everyone agrees that navel oranges are the best and most beloved of all: they’re sweet, seedless and can be peeled and segmented easily by even the littlest hands. In season: November through May At peak: January through March Produce Guru tip: Green-tinged oranges are ripe and still taste sweet (it’s just the chlorophyll helping protect the orange from sunburn!).   VALENCIA ORANGES Though Valencias start coming into our store in February, they’re actually a summer orange, and as the “orange-juice orange,” they’re the most… Read More

The Paleo Diet

posted on February 15th, 2017 by Lauren Murphy

You may have heard about the Paleo diet or know someone who follows it. This diet is inspired by our ancestors and how they used to consume their meals with clean food, free from additives with nothing processed or not found in nature. With Paleo, there is no calorie counting or portion control (unless you are trying to lose weight then you should limit the amount of fruits and nuts you eat or just enjoy them as snacks). Acceptable foods on the Paleo diet: Meat (grass-fed), poultry, fish, eggs Vegetables & sweet potatoes/yams Fruits Nuts Natural oils (olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil) Foods Paleo discourages: Dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt) Grains (no rice, pasta, barley) Grain-fed meats Sugar Legumes (peanuts, kidney beans) Sodas & packaged juices   Read More
