When you’re seriously looking to eat better and live a healthier life, you must remember 3 important things: eat natural foods, exercise often, and reduce your stress. Sometimes it’s hard to find the balance between the 3 facts, but eating healthy is extremely important in maintaining and achieving a healthy lifestyle. One company who strives to bring you healthier food choices is a company called Bob’s Red Mill. At Bob’s Red Mill, they make a wonderful assortment of food products for people who strive to eat better and live healthier. In our home, we have countless products from Bob’s Red Mill ranging from their pancake mix to their cereal blends. Bob’s Red Mill makes wholesome, natural, and delicious food for everyone.
You may have seen and heard about Bob’s Red Mill. They’ve been around for over 30 years making natural products that are good for you and good for the planet. Bob’s Red Mill started humbly in a small town in Oregon by Bob Moore and his wife after his pursuit to find original stone-grinding flour mills. When by chance he came upon an old mill for sale one day, he took the opportunity to start his own business of stone-ground flours and cereals for his friends, family, and customers. From then on, Bob’s Red Mill products slowly but steadily became a popular trend in the health-conscious industry. Bob’s Red Mill started as a family-owned company but recently became an employee-owned company because of Bob’s dedication to his employees and his company. In fact, as the company stated, you might even meet Bob himself if you ever decide to visit his store and visitor center in Oregon.
Bob’s Red Mill truly has a great assortment of products to choose from for your everyday cooking needs. They make products ranging from 10 grain whole grain hot cereals to flaxseeds to dried fruit. In fact, you can probably make an entire meal out of Bob’s Red Mill products and be extremely happy and satisfied knowing that you made something healthy and wholesome for your family. I’ve used their whole wheat flour and oat flour to make cookies and on most mornings we like to eat their 10 Grain Hot Cereal. The 10 Grain Hot cereal is super delicious as it contains stone ground high protein hard red wheat, rye, triticale, oat bran, oats, corn, barley, soy beans, brown rice, millet, and flaxseed. Talk about a nutritional powerhouse! We love the 10 Grain Hot Cereal with a little bit of milk or soymilk and some organic brown sugar or honey – yummy! Bob’s Red Mill has so many great products to choose from, you’re bound to find something that you’ll like and stock up on.
Bob’s Red Mill’s philosophy in providing healthy, wholesome, and natural foods extends beyond other normal food companies. They do all the milling, testing, packaging, and distributing in house and they source their ingredients from responsible farmers and farms who abide by the organic standards and laws. Bob’s Red Mill believes in close relationships with their farmers to ensure quality control and they inspect every ingredient that comes into their facility. And Bob’s Red Mill’s belief that whole grains are better for you and for the planet is evident in the quality of their products. They don’t add any unnecessary ingredients like preservatives, artificial colors and flavors, or sulfites. Their products are pure and simple and you can use them in virtually any baking or cooking recipe you have. In fact, on their website, they even offer recipes using their own products: http://www.bobsredmill.com/recipes.php and they encourage you to submit your own recipes as well.
Bob’s Red Mill makes organic, natural, and even gluten-free products so there really is something for everyone. They care about their products, their customers, and the environment and you’ll even find biodegradable packing peanuts in their packaging. Their see-through bags are easy for customers to see what they’re purchasing and the friendly, familiar face of Bob himself is on every package. Simply put – Bob’s Red Mill products are healthy, wholesome, and can fill almost every cooking need you may have. Bob’s Red Mill was also interested in my review of a few of their products and to give away to 3 LUCKY readers of Happymomblogger! The products they sent me were the Date Pieces, Pecan Halves, and Raw Pumpkin Seeds. Imagine the things you can cook and bake with those! Bob’s Red Mill’s Date Pieces are little bite-sized pieces of real dates and coated with oat flour. They’re great by itself or mixed into your cereal or even in your trail mixes. The Pecan Halves are plump, dark brown pecans that has a nice crunchy bite in them. I like to bake them with some organic brown sugar and organic butter and they become incredibly tasty snacks! And the Raw Pumpkin Seeds are great for baking, stirred into soups, or eaten as a snack; just make sure to toast them first since they come raw.
