Almonds have been the top nut in global new product development since 2006. There are over 14 versatile ingredient forms we’ve come to know and love, like almond milk, almond butter, and almond paste, etc.  Beyond the kernels we eat, almond hulls, shells and trees themselves can be used in mushroom cultivation, soil amendments for crops, animal feed and more.

Did you know More than 2 billion pounds of pumpkins are grown every year for all our pumpkin needs?⁠  And, according to the US Department of Energy, 1.3 billion pounds are uneaten and sent to the landfill. ⁠  ⁠  Food waste in landfills can’t break down so it’s stuck in limbo releasing methane a greenhouse gas 30x more powerful than carbon. ⁠  That’s why I love to use up my whole pumpkin – and that includes the seeds. If you have a big backyard or gardening space, you can save the seeds for planting next year and have your own pumpkin patch!    My favorite wa ..read more

Celery is definitely not my favorite vegetable. I mean… is it anyones? But, no matter my personal feelings, I can’t deny how important it is when it comes to developing flavor. It’s a centerpiece of the holy trinity used to make the foundation of many meals through a soffrito, mirepoix, and more.  Most people just use the heart of the vegetable, the long stalks often sold bundled together at the supermarket, but the celery leaves hold SO MUCH FLAVOR! So if you feel like your grocery store is skimping on the leaves, head to your local farmers market. You should be able to find plenty of le ..read more

This vegetarian chili is based off My dad’s famous chili recipe. Seriously, he makes the best chili! Now, I know everyone thinks their dad makes the best chili, but I’m just going to unequivocally say that my dad’s is definitely up there and you know why…. I don’t even like chili. I have nightmares of my grandma making me eat an entire bowl of canned chili, and I could not stand the stuff. This happened more than once and scarred all future chili interactions. I was never a rebellious child, but if it were chili night at church – I was probably going to be sick. Chili night at home, definite ..read more
