Apricot Apple Crisp

When sweet, golden orange apricots start appearing at farmer’s markets and in supermarkets, it’s time to put away the dried apricots and take advantage of one of nature’s sweetest delicacies. Fragrant, juicy, and delicious, the apricot can be enjoyed fresh or in a summer crisp paired with apples.  The combination of textures and flavors – soft, sweet, delicate apricots and firm, tangy apples with a crunchy whole grain oat topping – make for a perfect summer dessert.

Anson Mills Stone Cut Oats

Behold the phenomenon of real fresh oats.

Agricultural products depend on soil, seed, farming practices, preparation and enjoying the final product so it goes beyond saying that not all oats are created equal. In fact, it’s more accurate to say that oats – like many other products (think grocery store tomatoes versus Farmhouse tomatoes) – vary tremendously in flavor and it’s not because some are instant, flakes, or steel-cut but rather if the oat has been bred for flavor (as opposed to yield, visual appeal, shelf life, disease resistance, or transport) and grown in soil that uses crop rotation to maximize the nutrients and thus the flavor of the oat. Healthy, nutrient rich soil makes great tasting food.

The Saturn Peach

Summertime is the best season to enjoy fresh peaches so be adventurous and try the Saturn Peach. Small (about 3 inches across), flat and less fuzzy than the standard peach, the Saturn Peach has a very thin red and yellow skin. Sweeter than a typical peach…and never dry and mealy – the Saturn Peach is a healthy delicious snack best enjoyed in its natural freshly picked state. Harvested from late Spring through the Summer, the Saturn Peach is gaining popularity among farmers (because it’s easy to grow and bountiful) and peach fans (because the texture is juicy and the taste is scrumptious).

Charra’s Baked Corn Tostados

Traditional tostadas are supposed to be crunchy because corn tortillas are traditionally deep-fat fried in oil, which doesn’t always make a tostada the most wholesome food choice. But, what if a corn tortilla is baked instead? Well, then a tostada becomes a more nutritious choice because oils are not used. Read more »

We are challenging the status quo with a wildly different approach to breakfast and snack foods.

The innovative and creative minds at the San Antonio, Texas-based Wildway believe in fueling bodies with high quality nutrition with nutrient-dense food because “it’s not just about the calories, it’s about how our bodies can use real food ingredients to thrive and get the most out of life.” With that principle in mind, Wildway created five grain-free instant hot cereals by starting with a base of 7 ingredients: walnuts, ground flaxseed, cashews, coconut flour, pecans, dried dates, and vanilla bean, and then adding cinnamon, cocoa nibs, coconut, freeze dried blueberries, or espresso.
