When we reopen our Deli after the remodel there will be a few things that are very different.  The first thing you will most likely notice is that we have chosen to use monitors to project our menus for the juice, smoothie, coffee, sandwiches, beans and rice, and burrito bars.  The reason we have chosen this technology is primarily because we can edit our menus...

If you read the most recent newsletter, then you are aware of why we are remodeling the Deli Department. For those that did not, in a nutshell we are trying to provide increased workspace for our employees, improve the shopping flow for our customers, and as a result provide a more delightful shopping experience with better service. We’ll still have a line of self-serve... [read more]

Our produce department will be getting new, more efficient vegetable displays next week. We are removing the produce display that greets you as you enter the store with boxed salads and berries in order to get ready for our Deli Remodel coming in June. We are then removing and replacing the entire line of vegetable displays that merchandise everything from... [read more]

I love fruit salsas especially paired with fish.  I usually gravitate towards a mango pineapple salsa but as the strawberries have been so luscious lately and mine in the yard are going to be hard to keep up with soon, I broke out of my fruit salsa comfort zone and made some strawberry salsa this weekend. I firmly believe that the kitchen is a place for experimentation... [read more]

This Saturday all over the country little ones and adults alike will be busy boiling eggs and dying them.  Whether or not Easter is a religious celebration for you and yours, dying eggs is a fun and creative way to spend some time on a spring day with your children. Using natural ingredients instead of those little chemical pills is not only safer for pets, people...

Well that was fun! There is nothing like the freedom and excitement of literally throwing ingredients together without a recipe to make you feel alive in the kitchen. As mentioned last week I was on a mission to create a grain free, egg free and sugar free (although that last part I had to give up on) version of something that I could call... [read more]

Recently, I have discovered that I am allergic to eggs, which in my world is akin to being allergic to something as integral to my diet as coffee, water, or maybe even air. I love eggs, I have been eating them my entire life and heck! We even got chickens to grow our own eggs. This has been a shift in my life and diet that has coincided with my eliminating...

You may have heard through the grapevine that a Deli remodel is in the works. I want to take this opportunity to begin the process of communicating the changes to you. As you know, the Deli register stationed in front of the Juice Bar creates quite a cross traffic flow that makes it difficult for customers to shop. For this reason, we’ll be removing... [read more]

I have been noticing flowering trees and bushes for weeks now and recently, there is even some serious growth in our greenhouse.  Spring is the perfect time to cleanse your system and eating greens is a perfect way to do so.  Although, eating greens is a year round activity in my family, I like to throw some of the less tame greens into the mix every spring. ...

In my family growing up we all seemed to have a favorite breakfast that we enjoyed and would make for the rest of the family on weekends and special holidays. My brother seemed to favor one eyed jacks also known as eggs in the basket, one in the hole, hen in a nest and most likely many other names. Essentially the idea is that you take a piece of bread and butter it, cut out a... [read more]
