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…]

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…]

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…]

Tempeh Time: Cauliflower and Tempeh Curry

We’ve had a lot of fun exploring the different ways to cook with tempeh. It’s a great source of plant-based protein and as you know, we’re pretty obsessed with any form of plant-based nutrition at BumbleBar. For the last recipe in the Tempeh Time series, we decided to make a yummy veggie-centric comfort food: Cauliflower and Tempeh Curry. Follow along to make your own!

Tempeh Time: Vegan Tempeh Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

If you liked following along to our post on how to make tempeh hot wings, then you are going to love this Vegan Tempeh Gyros recipe with Tzatziki Sauce. The hot wings were good, but I have to say these gyros are better! If you’re in the mood for a great Greek dinner sans any meat or dairy, these are the way to go.

Tempeh Time: Vegan Hot Wings

Looking for something plant-based to serve on big game days? Turn your wings to tempeh! But wait, what’s tempeh? Tempeh is an Indonesian soy product produced by natural culturing and fermentation processes that bond the soybeans together into a patty form. It’s chewy, earthy, and absorbs whatever flavors you want to throw at it. To learn more about tempeh before making this recipe, check out our post about it!

Tofu Tour: Crispy Tofu and Sprouts Sandwich

For our final stop on the Tofu Tour, I decided to choose a recipe that was a little different than the other four we’ve made while exploring the different ways to prepare tofu. We’ve done nuggets, roasted veggie bowls, curry, and mini quiches, but now it’s time for something you can pack for lunch. It’s easy to make, it consists of three fresh ingredients, it comes with a crunch, and you’re going to love it. Without further ado, let’s make a crispy tofu and sprouts sandwich!

Tofu Tour: Mini Veggie Quiches

The next stop on our tour is mini tofu quiches! When choosing these recipes, my main goal has been variety. I want to show several ways one can enjoy tofu, even when one of the steps is to blend it into a purée. That’s not very appetizing to think of but bear with me because this recipe does not disappoint. I’d say these quiches are one of those recipes that you could set down in front of someone and they wouldn’t know the difference between it and the real deal.

Tofu Tour: Very Easy Vegan Curry

We’re exploring the different ways we can enjoy tofu and the next stop on the journey has a delightful kick. This was my first time making curry, and I was a little bit intimidated. I’ve heard talk of it from more sophisticated palates all my life, but I’m not entirely sure if I even really knew what it was until making it this weekend.

Curry is an all-encompassing term referencing a variety of recipes from the Indian subcontinent and South Asia. The linking factor is that all curry dishes feature a complicated mixture of herbs and spices that typically include hot chilies. There are dry curries out there, but our recipe is the saucy kind!

Tofu Tour: Vegan Roasted Veggie and Tofu Buddha Bowl

Tofu is one of those funny foods that everyone seems to say the same thing about. Usually, that thing is along the lines of, “it doesn’t really taste like anything.” While it’s true that plain tofu on its lonesome is pretty underwhelming, the same could be said about bread, and we find plenty of delicious ways to dress up and eat that. Unlike most bread, however, tofu is both a nutrient dense food and an excellent source of protein.
