Ingredient Highlight: Cardamom

The intricate flavor of cardamom comes through as citrusy, spicy, piney, minty, and herbal all at once. Its robust complexity makes it perfect for both sweet and savory foods. 

If you live in the United States, you might be the most familiar with cardamom in chai lattes. Here at BumbleBar, we blend cardamom with turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon for our Chai Almond BumbleBar (now on sale for just $1 per bar!). The warmth of the sesame seeds and the sweet buttery flavor of the almonds pairs perfectly with the slightly spicy medley—if we, ahem, do say so ourselves. [Read more…]

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

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…]

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…]
