  • Product Spotlight: Van’s Natural Crackers

    Posted on December 9, 2013 by Whitney Faber

    When it comes to powerhouse foods, Van’s “Lots of Everything” crackers pack two knockout punches: flavor and nutrition.

    Made with five nutrient-rich grains, these little wafers are crunchy, tasty and completely addicting. But unlike most foods with that just-can’t-stop-munching appeal, these crackers are totally guilt free. Perfect for dipping, stacking with cheese or plain old snacking, these crackers are a must for lunch or snack time.

    Like all Van’s products, “Lots of Everything” crackers are all natural, with their flavor coming from five great grains: gluten-free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. The crackers are also cholesterol free, dairy free, corn free and contain no trans fats or artificial colors or flavors.

    Van’s has been pioneering the path of cooking delicious, good-for-you foods since its start in the 1970s as a California beachside restaurant dishing up healthy, but still tasty, waffles. By now, they have expanded their repertoire to include pancakes, French toast, cereals, snack bars and, of course, crackers, that are sold all over the country.

    Though the original Van’s restaurant is no longer serving breakfast on the beach, the company still aims to bring the same “sunny Southern California sprit” to every product it makes. Maybe that’s why these crackers are so light and easy, just like a southern California day.

  • Product Spotlight: EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars

    Posted on June 11, 2013 by Whitney Faber

    It’s not just the adorable animals’ faces on the boxes of the EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars that has us spotlighting the product – though the faces are pretty difficult to resist. They are also a deliciously sweet snack.

    Finding treats for a child with dietary limitations can be a challenge, but these bars are a yummy take on the classic rice desert. The fruity bursts in each bite make it the perfect light snack during the summer, a time when the regular lunchtime meal may just not cut it after a full day of swimming at the pool or playing at the park.

    And you can be sure these snacks won’t just make your kids happy. The EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars follow all the philosophies of Nature’s Path foods: they are certified organic and non-GMO Project verified. They are also low in sodium, but make sure to note that they are produced in a facility that uses peanuts, tree nuts and milk.

    Nature’s Path is a family-run business with its roots in farming. Their motto is to “Leave the Earth better than they found it,” and they have multiple campaigns to try to do so. In that spirit, 1% of their sales are donated towards species and habitat conservation and environmental education. So snacking on these bars doesn’t just mean seeing cute cartoon animals on the box, but also does a little bit to be sure those faces are still seen in real life.

    For more information on Nature’s Path products and where to buy the Envirokidz line, visit shop.naturespath.com.

  • Are Genetically Modified Foods Safe for You and Your Gluten-Free Family?

    Posted on April 24, 2013 by Kira Russell

    Hail MerryFor years, gluten-free has been one of the top U.S. food trends, but it is GMO awareness that is currently uniting Americans who care about food quality and safety. You have a right to know what is in your food and GMO awareness is all about getting the facts and being able to make an educated food choice to protect your family’s health. As consumers become more aware, they overwhelmingly choose to buy non-GMO.  The gluten-free community should be no different.  Did you know most of the processed gluten-free foods sold in America contain GMO’s? If you answered no, you're not alone.

    What are GMO’s?

    GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE). This experimental technology merges DNA from different species, creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding.


    Are GMOs safe?

    Most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In nearly 50 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs.
