5 Reasons You Should Be Eating Organic Almonds

What do you look for in the perfect snack? Filling, tasty, crunchy, healthy, versatile? Organic almonds hit all those markers beautifully. And yes, organic almonds. There are a few reasons to eat organic almonds over conventional almonds, given the chemicals that may be used on non-organic almonds. Plus, there are lots of health perks and delicious reasons to snack on almonds and include them in your baking and cooking. 

We use organic roasted almonds in a few of our BumbleBars: Mixed Nut Medley, Amazing Almond, and Chai Almond (the last two being on sale this month!). Our Apple Crisp and Brownie Batter JunoBars both contain creamy, organic almond butter.

Let’s jump into five reasons to eat organic almonds:

Stop Eating So Much Sugar! I Did, So Can You

One of the best things I have done for my body lately is reducing my sugar intake. When I first decided to do this, it seemed scary and overwhelmingly restrictive. Desserts are my jam. The good news I discovered: I don’t have to give them up.

By no means have I achieved a completely low sugar diet by now, but I’m certainly much better than I was before.

If you’re thinking about reducing sugar in your diet, too, here are 8 tips and things I learned so far that might help you on your journey. Let’s start with the benefits so you feel encouraged:

Check out this Amazing Vegan GF Lemon Date Bar Recipe!

I have been making these gluten-free, plant-based treats for years. Kids & adults love them equally. One of my favorite cookbook series is the Moosewood Collective. The recipe is a riff on a lemon date bar from Moosewood Cooks At Home, which I highly recommend. I recently found out about a great source for used vegan cookbooks, Thriftbooks. Many books are $4 and below. Shipping is free after $10 in books. The site is a little dangerous for someone who is obsessed with books like me. 🙂 -Liz

Healthy Holiday No-Bake Maca Cookies

Holiday cookies are unapologetically my favorite part of the holiday season! Growing up, I would start making cookies with my mom about mid-December. We baked anywhere from five to eight different kinds. We gave them as gifts to anyone we visited, we left them on neighbor’s doorsteps, and of course, we kept covered platefuls in the kitchen so anytime during the day I could float over and grab a little something to feed my sugary festive appetite.

But ever since I began working at BumbleBar, I’ve admitted just how unhealthful and harmful all of that refined sugar and gluten-filled flour can be. My sweet tooth can’t be stopped, though. That’s the truth. So now I just try to make my sweets with natural sugars—and a little less of it—and ingredients that actually provide some nutrients. [Read more…]

May is Celiac Awareness Month. What’s it like to Live with Celiac Disease?

May is celiac awareness month. As a gluten-free energy bar company, pretty much every month is celiac awareness month here, but we want to help spread the word.  

Celiac disease is an immune reaction to consuming gluten, a protein found in wheat. Check out our blog post specifically on gluten to learn more about it. Consuming gluten triggers a response in people with this disease. It damages their small intestine’s lining over time and prevents the body from absorbing nutrients. Celiac disease can manifest itself in many ways. The intestinal damage that occurs when eating gluten can cause an individual with this disease to experience anything from fatigue and irritability to weight loss and infertility as well as a variety of other uncomfortable and painful side effects.
