Today’s staff pick comes from Alex, one of our awesome Organic Produce guys. He starts his day off with a Ciara’s Kombucha, nearly every day. Most of you already know that Kombucha is a refreshing, healthful, living enzyme beverage traditionally made with tea and sugar. What’s special about Ciara’s is that for every bottle sold, they make a donation to fund liver research. What an amazing company. Stop by today to try one of the many awesome flavors.
Debbie absolutely loves this blend of brown rice, red rice, and veggies as a side to any meal. When she needs an easy side to chicken, steak, tofu, or chops, this is her go-to. The directions call for water, but Debbie says you can make it with Vegetable or Chicken broth for an even richer flavor. Stop by tonight to bring home a quick, easy, and affordable side dish that your family will love.
Andrew’s favorite treat to eat both right out of the jar and to bake up is Eat Pastry’s Cookie Dough. It is Vegan, and GMO-Free. The dough contains no dairy, egg, cholesterol, artificial flavors, or hydrogenated oils. THANK GOODNESS! They use Organic and Fair-Trade sugar, and nothing unnatural! Lucky us, they come in several Gluten-Free varieties, too! If you’re going to bake these yummy morsels, it is so easy. All you do is spoon some dough onto a cookie sheet in any size you like, flatten them out a bit, and bake for 12-15 minutes. How easy is that!? Stop in and grab a flavor or two, try not to eat it all right out of the jar!
As we’re getting through flu season, you may have been on antibiotics, or maybe your body is just out of whack due to stresses or your environment. This Raw Probiotic powder is perfect for your situation. This 5-day, Maximum Care blend is great for replenishing your internal flora. Heather is always reminding us that the gut is the largest part of your immune system, and we should always take care of it! Another reason Heather really likes this powder is because it really doesn’t have too much of a flavor, so it’s mild and easy to drink. Raw, Organic banana is added to soothe the stomach and provide a very light taste. If you want to achieve balance, this is going to repopulate your belly with good bacteria.
…And laughter is the best medicine! It’s an old adage, but a true one. Organic Apples are so healthy and delicious. How could you resist a Fresh, Organic apple. It’s compact, high in fiber (and so much more-see below), comes in its own package, and is a sweet treat all in one. Pat’s favorite variety changes according to season, but right now the Pink Lady is at the top of her list. They are sweet with just the right amount of crispy tartness. Right now, Debbie’s favorite is the Fuji. Both delicious! Click through to read the many reasons Organic Apples truly do save you a trip to the doctor.

Casey is our dedicated, Straight-A student to is always trying to balance work and high school. He is amazing! Inko’s White Tea Energy keeps him moving from one thing to the next, whether it be the juice bar, AP Chemistry, or just hanging out with friends. Constantly going every day, all day can take a toll, but with the right amount of sleep and a bit of help from Inko’s, Casey keeps his amazing pace. To be honest, I am not always a fan of energy drinks, but this tea actually tastes like TEA, without any processed, chemical taste at all. It’s delicious and seriously all natural. When you can’t make it in for your Organic Wheat Grass shot, take one of these to go.

Rachel just got back from Evergreen College in Washington State, and her new favorite product here at The Corner is this yummy Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk. The secret is out: This oh so dreamy beverage is sweetened with Stevia- which means you can add it guilt-free to your coffee, make hot chocolate, mix it into a milkshake, or use it for so many other creamy desserts like the tapioca pudding recipe on the package. Rachel is a Vegan, so this Dairy-Free milk is a winner. Stop by to try this amazing holiday treat!
