Finding Hope in El Salvador

Joanna, our R&D technician, shares her El Salvador experience

It is a profound experience to have your heart broken and then filled with hope by the people of a foreign country. I spent the last 10 days of October in El Salvador learning about the violent history of the country, meeting its people, and seeing the hope and hard work they pour into solving their current social issues.  [Read more…]

We Have Adaptogens on Our Minds

Three Adaptogens to Help with Stress

Fatigue — unfortunately — is universal in our culture. We all could use a little more energy, a little less stress, and a good mental boost. It’s wonderful to know amazing adaptogenic herbs are out there to aid us.

We at BumbleBar get excited about any plant-based, nourishing foods, so we’ve been thinking and talking about adaptogens lately, and the wonderfully natural way they support our bodies.  Three, in particular, have been on our minds: Rhodiola rosea, schisandra berry, and eleuthero root. These three adaptogenic herbs have been the most extensively studied of the adaptogens and found to be both effective and safe. [Read more…]

5 Reasons to Become a CSA Member of Your Local Farm

The breakfast menu for this morning: Chioggia beet and red Norland potato hash with two soft-fried eggs seasoned with summer savory.

I have been making these types of delicious, simple dishes for every meal since I became a CSA member of my local farm this season. My meals are made up of about 65% fresh vegetables—roasted, sautéed, or chopped raw—which is more than double what I ate prior.

It may sound like an overstatement, but I assure you it’s not: Becoming a CSA member has changed my eating habits, and in turn, my life. I’m making healthier, more knowledgeable decisions about the food I put in my body and being culinarily inspired along the way. [Read more…]

Make a BumbleBar into a Smoothie

We’re not sure how hot it is in your part of the country or the world, but here in Spokane, Washington, it’s been in the mid-90s for the past couple of weeks. The heat sits on you like a heavy blanket you just can’t kick off. The best relief for us here at BumbleBar is to go jump into one of the numerous lakes in our region. Making a cold drink proves to be another great option.

We grabbed a Mixed Nut Medley BumbleBar and blended it into a smoothie for a nutty-meets-fruity, refreshing beverage. [Read more…]

In Praise of Plant-Based Protein

It’s no secret many Americans are in love with meat. Burgers, BBQ, steaks, and tacos make up a massive portion of restaurant menus and home-cooked meals.

People justify their large meat consumption with their need for protein. That’s legitimate. Your body requires protein. But meat isn’t necessarily the healthiest source of it. Studies show eating plants for protein is better. [Read more…]

It’s Pride Month, Let’s Celebrate!

Why We Celebrate Pride Month in June and Why It’s So Colorful

Love, acceptance, and rainbow flags are in the air!

It’s Pride Month, and people are taking to the streets to celebrate the LGBT+ community and to raise awareness.

Every year, we parade in June to commemorate the Stonewall riots in New York. On June 28, 1969, police raided a gay bar in Greenwich Village, called the Stonewall Inn. The raid sparked neighborhood riots that lasted for days after. New York’s gay community was fed up after years of enduring harassment from authorities. [Read more…]
