Get Nutty on National Almond Day

  Today is National Almond Day and we couldn’t be more psyched. The delicately-flavored nuts pair perfectly with kefir when sprinkled on our smoothie bowls, rolled in our Farmer Cheeseball Bites, or as a yummy filling in our delicious donuts. Other than offering a crunchy, contrasting texture to creamy kefir, almonds deliver a stellar nutritional profile. They’ve been shown to reduce […]


Foods that Make You Feel Good

What we choose to eat and what we choose not to eat directly affect the way we feel – both physically and mentally. We’re not talking about the sense of pride you feel when you choose a vibrant salad over a greasy cheeseburger, but the physical and emotional changes we experience when we eat real, nutrient-dense food. The consumption of […]


Healthy Ingredient Spotlight: Dark Chocolate

Today’s healthy ingredient spotlight needs little introduction, but perhaps some explaining. Typically, the words “dark chocolate” and “world’s healthiest foods” don’t appear in the same sentence, let alone the same discussion. Until very recently, that is. We’ll never know why scientists chose to look into the health benefits of dark chocolate, but we’re extremely glad […]

Donna Schwenk’s youngest daughter Holly, was born seven-and-a-half weeks premature via emergency C-section.

Sitting: Your Newest Health Risk

Sitting gets a bum rap for good reasons. Study after study proves that chairs are basically a swift, direct path to disability and disease. And no, it doesn’t matter if you hit the gym after work: the simple act of remaining sedentary is enough to put you in an early grave. A new study from […]
