Earnest Eats Introduces New Hot & Fit Cereal Made with Superfood Grains

Earnest Eats, makers of natural foods rooted in the nourishment of whole, unprocessed ingredients, recently announced the addition of Hot & Fit Cereals to its line of products. The new Earnest Eats Hot & Fit Cereals blend a unique trio of superfood grains, including whole oats, amaranth and quinoa, with a hearty selection of nuts, seeds and fruit to create a deliciously unique hot cereal breakfast offering that delivers a deeply nutritious and vitalizing start to any day.

“In developing our new Earnest Eats Hot & Fit Cereals, I was incredibly inspired by the nutritional muscle and delicious simplicity of superfood grains used in different cultures around the globe,” said Andrew Aussie, president and co-founder of Earnest Eats. “We wanted to create a powerhouse hot cereal breakfast with flavors inspired from around the world that was unlike anything available in the market today – a breakfast option that enriches, energizes, and nourishes the body with real, whole-food ingredients.”

Earnest Eats Hot & Fit Cereals combine satisfying superfood grains with ingredients from around the globe, like rich dark cocoa, naturally-sweet fruits, and toasted nuts and seeds. The globally-inspired flavor blends include:

  • American Blend: Superfood Grains, Cranberries & Almonds

  • Mayan Blend: Dark Cocoa, Almonds & Pepitas

  • Asian Blend: Mango & Green Tea

The superfood grains found in Hot & Fit Cereals, including whole oats, quinoa and amaranth, have been cultivated for centuries, and are highly esteemed for their superior protein, fiber and phytonutrient properties. Whole oats are prized for their high soluble and insoluble fiber content, which is well known for its positive effect on heart health. Quinoa has been regarded by the Incas as “the mother seed,” and is considered a complete protein because it contains all of the essential amino acids. Like quinoa, amaranth is also well-balanced in amino acids, but is also known for its alkaline-forming characteristics, which help to boost energy levels.

A hearty and satisfying hot cereal that takes the “blah” out of old-fashioned oatmeal, Earnest Eats Hot & Fit Cereals take only five minutes to prepare and pair perfectly with milk, almond milk, soy milk or plain water. The unsweetened cereals can be complemented with the addition of honey, agave, brown sugar or any all-natural sweetener of choice.

Like all other Earnest Eats products, the Hot & Fit Cereals embody the philosophy that foods should be nutrient dense rather than calorie laden, and made with whole-food ingredients, not synthetic additives. Each serving of the 100 percent natural, vegan, and wheat-free cereals has 190 calories or less, and contains less than 2 grams of sugar and 6 grams of protein while providing an excellent source of fiber (5 grams). Hot & Fit Cereals are available in multi-use canisters, retail for $4.89-$5.49, and can be found online or at natural foods stores nationwide, including Target, Amazon.com and earnesteats.com.

New Technology Gives The PURE Glass Bottle A Clear Advantage In Reusable Beverage Bottles

For most people, glass bottles are the preferred choice of a drink container for better taste, cleanliness and fewer health risks.  But the challenge with glass has always been its durability and the risk of shattering – that is until now. PURE Glass Bottle is a new portable re-usable glass drinking bottle that allows people to enjoy that pure taste of their favorite beverage in glass without worrying about spills or injury resulting from broken glass.

Patent pending SafeShell technology is used to apply a clear protective coating to the outside of the glass bottle to create a protective covering.  If the glass does break, the coating encapsulates all the glass and liquid preventing messes and injuries from the breakage. The exterior of the bottle remains smooth to the touch so it can be disposed of or recycled safely and easily.

“The SafeShell technology alleviates peoples’ fear of carrying glass bottles outside of the home,” says PURE Glass Bottle, Inc. President Walt Himelstein. The bottles are 100% recyclable and BPA free. The coating is also slip resistant making it easier to handle than other re-usable glass bottles. Although no glass container is shatter-proof, the PURE Glass Bottle is shatter-resistant and much tougher to break than standard glass. The product was designed to help consumers save money and the environment by reusing the bottles over and over again, thereby eliminating the need to buy bottled drinks. The wide mouth design of the PURE Glass Bottle makes it easy to add ice, protein powder, water flavoring or any beverage.

Two styles are available: the 17.5 oz Traveler; and the 25 oz Explorer.  Both styles come with a selection of convenient tops and handles.  The bottles can be purchased for $19.95.  The entire product line and additional information is available at www.PUREglassbottle.com

Rickland Orchards Introduces the First Shelf-Stable Greek Yogurt Bar

Rickland Orchards recently launched the first-ever Greek Yogurt Bar; the optimal nutritious, delicious, and all natural, on-the-go snack. Rickland Orchards Greek Yogurt Bars feature honey-roasted granola and real fruit dipped in Authentic Strained Greek Yogurt imported from Europe. Rickland Orchards is the first to offer consumers Greek Yogurt in a shelf-stable, great tasting bar; and furthermore provide an excellent source of fiber and a good source of protein in each serving. Now, busy parents, active kids and teens, and health conscious consumers can enjoy the benefits of Greek yogurt AND probiotics effortlessly.

According to CEO and Co-Founder, Jason Cohen, “We are thrilled with the overwhelming positive response we have received on our Greek Yogurt Bars. We have developed the perfect combination of great taste, strong nutritional values and on trend, quality ingredients.”  And our “test kitchen” at the Green Living Newsletter couldn’t agree more.  “These bars are delicious.  We had a real hard time picking a favorite,” said associate editor, Kristyn Noren.  “But what a fun time we had taste-testing.”

The phenomenon of Greek yogurt has spreadacross all consumer groups, and Rickland Orchards is staying ahead of the curve by expanding into non-traditional ways in which to enjoy Greek yogurt. In 2007, Greek yogurt sales totaled $35.4 million and the projected Greek yogurt sales for 2012 are estimated to be well over $2 billion.  Rickland Orchards Greek Yogurt Bars are already flying off the shelves in major markets across the country. The company has received authorizations in over 10,000 locations in the first 90 days of its launch.  

“We have literally traveled the globe in the last 6 months searching for the best ingredients and securing our supply ofshelf-stable, authentic Greek Yogurt”, said President & Co Founder Michael Sands.  “Working with the top food scientists was a must before we approved the product for launch. The hard work paid off - the acceptance by dry grocery buyers has been incredible. They see the growth of Greek Yogurt in the refrigerated section and want to capitalize on it in their set.”

Rickland Orchards All Natural Greek Yogurt Bars are layered with the finest granola, real fruit and nuts, and authentic Greek yogurt.  The combination of our nutritional benefits and great taste are the secret recipe to our successful launch. Our one-of-a-kind bars are available in six distinct flavors – Blueberry Acai, Cherry Almond, Toasted Coconut, Cranberry Almond, Apple & Honey, and Orchard Peach. Rickland Orchards Greek Yogurt Bars contain all natural ingredients, 5g of fiber, 7g of protein, and probiotics.
