Whole Foods Market® Game Day Tips

 
Whole Foods Market® Game Day Tips 

AUSTIN, Texas (Jan. 21, 2013) — February 3 has earned a special place in the hearts and stomachs of football fans as America’s 2nd biggest eating holiday, but you don’t have to leave the party feeling like a linebacker this year. Whole Foods Market’s healthy eating chef, Chad Sarno shares tips from his healthy eating playbook for lighter takes on game day favorites that will have your guests cheering.

Easy Swaps for Dips and Appetizers:
      ·  Revamp the classic crowd pleasers, salsa and hummus, with healthful alternatives such as Black Bean Hummus or Fresh Pineapple Salsa

      ·  Ditch those oily chips and fatty dips, and serve up some Edamame Guacamole or Nutty Red Pepper and Basil Dip with fresh veggies or make your own Cheesy Kale Chips for a nutrient-packed, crunchy snack.

Enough to Feed the Whole Team:
      ·  Appease even the pickiest of eaters by offering a smart alternative to personal pan-pizza with Engine 2’s Plant-StrongTortilla Hummus Pizzas

      ·  Entertain your whole sideline with Pita Chips with Sweet Potato Mash and Smoked Almonds

      ·  Put your own twist on a traditional game day dish by serving up protein-packed Lentil ChiliBison Chili or Turkey Sloppy Janes.  

If Your Party Goes Into Overtime:
      ·  Once the fourth quarter comes to a close, surprise everyone by breaking out some special treats from our playbook such asCocoa-Oat Truffles or No-Bake Thumbprint Cookies     
 
      ·  Try this tip! Lighten up baking even more by swapping up to half the butter/margarine in a recipe for unsweetened applesauce or try adding in beets or dates, which are naturally sweet for added flavor and health!

Whole Foods Market® Healthy Pantries and Healthy Dishes

Whole Foods Market® Healthy Pantries and Healthy Dishes 

AUSTIN, Texas (Jan. 3, 2013) — After all of those holiday indulgences, most will be ready to watch their waistlines and wallets. As the New Year approaches, Whole Foods Market is making it easy to stock up and slim down with a list of their Top 10 healthy pantry staples for quick, affordable, tasty meals that won’t break the bank. Shoppers can stock a healthier pantry that, with a few fresh ingredients, herbs and spices, will give them everything they need to cook a range of healthy snack and dinner recipes from Quinoa with Balsamic Roasted Mushrooms toBlack Bean Hummus.

 
Here are the 10 versatile essentials:

     1.     Black beans –great for soups, salads, spreads and dips as Chef Chad Sarno demonstrates in this cooking video.

     2.     Lentils – hearty addition for a healthy chili dish, stew or soup like Indian Red Lentil Soup or Lentils, Brown Rice and Caramelized Onions (Mujadara)

     3.     Quinoa –can be served pilaf-style, stuffed inside peppers, served as an alternative to oatmeal for breakfast and even used for burgers! To incorporate some seasonal veggies, try Quinoa with Roasted Veggies

     4.     Low-sodium vegetable broth – culinary staple for sautéing vegetables in addition to a soup base

     5.     Rolled oats – January is National Oatmeal Month!  Try Apple-Scented Breakfast Oatmeal and Buckwheat for a hearty breakfast, or add oats to a range of desserts

     6.     Whole wheat pasta –making the switch to whole wheat is one of the easiest ways to make a small change for healthier meal options.

     7.     Balsamic vinegar –drizzle this over a range of dishes from salads to roasted vegetables with this high-flavor, healthful topping.

     8.     Almond milk –this is a must for breakfast, baked goods, desserts, smoothies … you name it!

     9.     Diced tomatoes (When fresh isn’t available, canned tomatoes are an easy & healthy alternative to add into soups, stews, chili or to a main entrée)

     10.   Frozen fruits and veggies—picked and frozen at the peak of freshness, it’s easy to throw in frozen veggies to a soup, pasta or stir-fry dish and frozen fruit is a great addition to smoothies or hot cereals in the morning.

Whole Foods Market® Kildeer Vendor Fair

Illinois vendors offered chance to meet with Whole Foods Market® buyers
Future Kildeer store holding vendor fair Jan. 17 to find great new local products, deadline
for entry submission Sunday, January 6
  

Kildeer, IL (January 2, 2013) – Whole Foods Market, the world’s leading natural and organic grocer, is holding a local vendor fair Thursday, Jan. 17 at the Holiday Inn Express in Palatine to discover new products to sell at the Kildeer location. The event offers local producers the opportunity to meet with Whole Foods Market buyers and learn the viability of having their products sold in the new store, with potential for growth within the region and the company. Only vendors that grow fruits and/or vegetables commercially or manufacture and package products in Illinois are eligible. Those interested in learning more are encouraged to visit wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/kildeer.

“As a mission-based company, Whole Foods Market believes in supporting local farmers, producers and artisans by buying locally,” comments Stefanie Garcia, local forager. “There are so many great products available right here in Illinois and we greatly look forward to learning about them and working with their creators to potentially carry them in our store.”

With a companywide goal of sourcing 20 percent of products from local producers, each store works independently to acquire products that best suit the tastes and needs of customers. Vendors are required to ensure their product meets the company’s strict quality standards. 

“Every product gets its start somewhere. We love working with local vendors and have many success stories of products being carried regionally or even nationally after starting in a local store,” states Garcia. “The relocation of the Palatine store offers us more shelf space to encourage even more local vendors to work with us.”

Whole Foods Market believes there are many benefits to buying local, including:

•      Local farm production helps stores and customers stay connected to the seasons, regional varieties and the people who grow our food.

•      Family-run farms put a face behind the product. Many local growers visit Whole Foods Market stores to share their products and to meet the people who buy their food.

•      Shoppers are given the freshest, most flavorful seasonal offerings of regional growers.

•      Supporting local family growers and co-operatives creates local jobs and ensures the continuation of independent farming and the diversity of land use.

Whole Foods Market® named ‘the leading national retailer’ in personal care products

 
Whole Foods Market® named ‘the leading national retailer’ in personal care products

Campaign for Safe Cosmetics praises company’s Premium Body Care™ and organic labeling guidelines
 

AUSTIN, Texas (December 12, 2012) – Whole Foods Market has been named the highest ranked retailer for personal care product safety in the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics’ Retailer Report.

In the report released today, the company is commended for implementing “a rigorous and transparent approach to screening the personal care products it sells.”

“We are proud and thrilled to be mentioned in the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics’ Retailer Report in such high esteem,” said Jeremiah McElwee, executive Whole Body coordinator. “This validates both our team’s hard work and that of the wonderful supplier partners we work with to deliver the absolute highest quality natural and organic body care products to our customers.”

The Retailer Report goes on to say that “no other national retailer comes close to rivaling Whole Foods Market’s leadership in the realm of safer personal care products.”

Whole Foods Market announced its Premium Body Care standards in March 2008, which was the first private standard for personal care products created by a major retailer in the United States. The company now offers more than 3,800 personal care products that meet these rigorous standards.

In September 2012, the company announced that all organic personal care products in its U.S. stores are third-party certified, making Whole Foods Market the first national retailer to mandate certification for all organic personal care products on its shelves.

“Believe it or not, there are no federal laws that regulate how the word ‘organic’ can be used on personal care products,” McElwee said. “Our shoppers don’t expect the meaning of organic to change between store aisles and neither do we.”

8 Cheats for Holiday Hosting in a Hurry from Whole Foods Market®

 

8 Cheats for Holiday Hosting in a Hurry from Whole Foods Market®

AUSTIN, Texas (December 4, 2012) – Hosting a classy holiday soiree doesn’t have to call for 12 hours of toil behind the stove. And let’s face it, stressed and sweaty isn’t a good look on anyone. So step away from the garlic press and put down that rolling pin– these simple cheats will have you prepped and hosting like a pro in minutes so you can get out of the kitchen and join the party.

For piping-hot nibbles in no-time:
     1)     Spread your favorite pre-made pesto (either your favorite store brand or a go-to recipe), a few sundried tomatoes and Whole Foods Market 365 Everyday Value Goat Cheese on 365 Everyday Value Naan and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees for a delicious gourmet flatbread with a light crispy crust.  

     2)     Try our new 365 Everyday Value Trio of Three Cheese, Mushroom and Spinach Florentine Mini Quiches. No need for pie tins here – just pop these delicious morsels into the oven, you’ll have a home-baked taste your guests will love in no time.

     3)     Make your oven multi-task as well as you do. Add some 365 Everyday Value Mini Pizzas to the oven while the quiches are cooking. With 12 in every box and plenty of variety, you’ll have something tasty for everyone to try.

For the dippers, spreaders and friends of cheese
     4)     Arrange a few people-pleasing cheeses such as a small wheel of our Wellspring Goat Brie, a traditional British blue like Borough Market Stilton, with a dollop of Dalmatia Fig Spread and a wedge of creamy, complex Le Gruyère on a serving platter with 365 Everyday Value Entertaining Crackers, Marcona almonds and olives for an elegant and appetizing arrangement. 

     5)     For something a little different, add some Divina pickles, made for Whole Foods Market by an Arkansas family who has been preserving fresh seasonal produce since 1947. We love the Pickled Spicy Green Beans and the Mild Crunchy Okra Pickles.

     6)     To add a nice pop of color and flavor to the table, blend together 1 cup olive oil and 1 cup fresh herbs (basil, cilantro, chives, etc.) with a few pinches of sea salt to make a perfect herb dip for crusty breads and crudités. Or drizzle a bit over Greek yogurt for a tangy treat.

To satisfy the sweet tooth:
     7)     Whip up a batch of your favorite cookies and pair them with one of three seasonal 365 Everyday Value ice cream favorites — Pumpkin, Peppermint or NEW Eggnog — and make your own one-bite ice cream sandwiches. For an extra twist, dip one half into melted white or dark chocolate and freeze. Don’t have time to make your own cookies? Try pairing 365 Everyday Value Ginger Snaps and 365 Everyday Value Pumpkin Ice Cream, or 365 Everyday Value Chocolate Covered Pretzels with 365 Everyday Value Peppermint Ice Cream.
 

     8)     Offer your guests a delicious assortment of bite-sized gourmet treats – try Whole Foods Market Organic Truffles in Cappuccino, Chocolate or Caramel, Whole Foods Market Fleur de Sel Caramels or Whole Foods Market Truffled Roasted Walnuts. No assembly required, and smaller portions means you can have more than one!

Whole Foods Market Music Competition

Whole Foods Market® music competition
Two Chicago area bands finalists; opportunity for customers to win a trip to Napa 
 
CHICAGO (August 17, 2012) –Whole Foods Market announced that The Welcome, a band from Chicago, IL, and It Is I., a band from Naperville, IL, are two of the ten finalists in the first-ever Raw and Unprocessed™ —Team Member Music Project. The winning band or musician will be the opening act for a VH1 You Oughta Know concert in Napa, CA in November as part of the Live in the Vineyard series, exclusive to top-notch members of the music industry. Other prizes for the winner include a music video produced by Whole Foods Markets’ professional video team and a concert at the Whole Foods Market Napa Store. Anyone can listen and vote daily for their favorite song at rawandunprocessed.com now through August 31, for a chance to win a trip for two* to Napa for the Live in the Vineyard concert.


Two members of The Welcome are Team Members at Whole Foods Market stores in Chicago—Sarah Johnson from Gold Coast and Jonah Kort from Lincoln Park. The song “Don’t Need Detectives” highlights their dynamic guy-girl vocals, a healthy dose of loud hooks and unrelenting melodies.

After recently returning from a brief Midwestern tour in support of their EP, The Welcome is writing new material for a follow-up release due at the end of 2012. Zachary Porlier, a Team Member at the Naperville store, submitted “I Want More of You” for the band It Is I. The band’s sound has evolved in the years following its formation, switching frequently from a rock heavy to pop influenced sound. It is I. has previously released an official debut EP, Madeleine, and has toured extensively around the Midwest while constantly at work on new material. Both bands were selected from more than 700 song entries across all Whole Foods Market stores. Hi-res photos of the bands are available. Participate in the conversation online at #wfmmusic.

*Grand prize includes airfare for two to Napa from anywhere in the continental U.S., two nights hotel and passes to the Live in the Vineyard concert. For official rules, click here.
