Prescription for success: The no B.S. bar
One of our top selling protein bars is the RXBAR, a whole food, delicious energy munchie that lists the ingredients on the front of its packaging in big letters so no one is disappointed or surprised what’s actually in the bar.

Don’t be a jerk, have a snack!
And that snack better be loaded with protein. If it’s not a protein shake—an industry that has become a $500 million behemoth—it’s a protein bar, or better yet something beefy and chewy such as grass-fed meat jerky or at least an all-natural meat and vegetable jerky. According to data from market research firm IRI, Jack…Read More
Diets—Do you have a favorite?
With all the diet or eating regimens out there, it was only a matter of time before serious foodies started proselytizing about which diet regimen works best for them.

Green with envy!
One of the big things to come out of Victoria Boutenko’s book, Green Smoothie Revolution, was the way the 20-40 age group embraced the green drink in this decade with gusto, preferring to sip salads through a straw…even for breakfast! The “envy” comes from all those over 50-somethings who somehow missed out on this new…Read More
Cholesterol—it’s a sticky issue

It’s estimated that one in four Americans over the age of 45 are taking a group of…Read More
Baking with Pamela
GreenAcres cooks bake almost exclusively with Pamela’s Gluten Free Flour. It wasn’t always that way. We started out experimenting with other flours, and for a time, we’d try new recipes with conventional flours, only to have our customers ask, “Can you make that same cake, pie or pastry for us who are gluten free?” Pamela’s…Read More
Save the bees!

Me woman, you man…let’s Paleo together

He eats meat, veggies, nuts and fruit, and eschews cane sugar in all its forms and bread, to my knowledge. So whatâs good about a diet that leaves…Read More
