Summer Yummies from Whole Foods Market

It’s movie night and the boys and I are munching on Iowa Popcorn…

Every member of our family noticed our new popcorn at a different moment and every one said ‘Iowa!’ You see Iowa is where we are from. I grew up watching the corn stalks grown right next door to me. My Hubby even helped with shucking corn each year. We were a bit excited to see our home state being brought into Whole Foods stores!

Tiny But Mighty Popcorn

TINY BUT MIGHTY HEIRLOOM POPCORN has kernels about half the size of kernels in regular popcorn. Tiny But Mighty popcorn is essentially hull-less (without the shell cooked away during the popping process), making it easier to chew and easier to digest. Tiny But Mighty Popcorn is a recipient of Whole Foods Market’s Loan Producer Loan Program (LPLP), a program providing local farmers and artisans a low-interest loan to help make their dreams a reality.

Don’t let me forget to say it is non-GMO verified!

Enchilada Sauce

A new enchilada sauce to try? Yes please! A fav in my house, I loved the taste of SKY VALLEY GRILLING SAUCES AND MARINADES. I also loved the ease of squirting right out of the bottle. Just added some shredded cheese on top before I baked and voila. yum!

Out with the old (Sriracha) and in with the new – Sky Valley is excited to release 10 brand new Internationally inspired, bold flavored sauces to your kitchen. With sweet, spicy, and savory options like Korean BBQ Sauce, Enchilada Sauce, Miso Glaze, Thai Peanut Sauce and many more, these gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO verified, and organic sauces.

Sprouting Seeds

HIGH MOWING ORGANIC HOME SPROUTING SEEDS is going to be a fun project for me and the boys. We’ve been busy packing, moving and traveling this summer, but I brought it with me to our summer destination. Can’t wait to unpack and watch our seeds turned into fresh food!

Pole & Line Tuna

Have you ever bought a can of tuna because of the cool looking can? You might now! POLE & LINE CAUGHT TUNA is the most sustainable canned tuna option on the marke. The fish in every can is caught one at a time using the pole and line method for sustainability, with a fisherman’s signature on each can—allowing shoppers to trace exactly where their can of tuna came from!

Watch this video to hear from the fishermen themselves, and learn why “pole and line caught” is the most sustainable fishing method out there.

 

Are you a hot sauce fan? You need to try SCRUMPTIOUS PANTRY HEIRLOOM HOT SAUCE. I knew the boys wouldn’t love the spicy taste so I added as a side choice to our bbq chicken the other night. The bottle informed me it was a great addition to bbq and mac & cheese night. Yes it was!

Founded from a passion for food with heirloom food values, Scrumptious Pantry is now offering three, gluten-free, non-GMO hot sauces made with heirloom peppers. Available in one-of-a-kind flavors like Beaver Dam Pepper, Chiltepin Pepper, and American Persimmon.
