Come Back to us Whole Foods

Whole Foods has been one of the most successful natural products stores in the United States.  From small beginnings, they have become a publicly traded market leader, and were recently acquired by the ubiquitous AMAZON.

Beyond the huge corporate story of Whole Foods rise, however, is the fact that they are still a health food store.  In as much, they are part of the larger Natural Products Industry which has done important things as a whole such as fight for the Dietary Supplements Health Education act, strengthen the integrity of the Organic act,  and has generally involved the work of many to bring the natural food and holistic medicine/lifestyle to a wider range of people across the country.

This is why it makes me sad to read things like the following articles posted in my feed this week by former and current employees of Whole Foods;

Oh and ESPECIALLY this one since it affects me and a lot of people I care about….

My point is this – for many years Whole Foods was based on things like being good to their employees, helping the environment and supporting local food and small businesses.  They referred to their vendors as “partners in the trade.”  They developed groundbreaking vendor partnerships which gave them market advantages and a lot of good will with their business peers.  Unlike the banks which are “too big to fail”, sometimes companies become too big to sustain their success – growing to the point where they can’t see their own shoes that got them to the place where they were. Ever seen a brand go down the toilet? It isn’t pretty.

Once you said we were partners. We supported you as such, and were happy to spend our dollars with you.  Come back to us Whole Foods – it isn’t too late.  We need you now more than ever as part of this movement.  Respectfully, your former partners in the trade.

Introducing Boneless Broth – the plant-based super food instant health drink!

Folks, over at the Food Movement we are ringing in the New Year in a really special way! We are soon unveiling our brand new Boneless Broth product line, with our first recipe – Boneless Broth Moringa Miso.

‘Lots of us try to add some nutritional benefit to our lives by supplementing with super foods. There are lots of good ones out there; but this new Boneless Broth formula combines three heavy-hitters for a trifecta of souper foods!

Our new formula contains

-freeze-dried organic Red Miso (made from non-GMO soy beans)

-organic Moringa oleifera leaf (known as the ‘Miracle Tree’)

-organic Dulse flakes – a treasure trove of ocean nutrition in the form of a delicious seaweed that has been called “bacon of the sea” for its savory, meaty flavor

What you get is an amazing instant soup mix dietary supplement; that is to say you are getting complete proteins, minerals, antioxidants – and lots of unique constituents like the dipocolonic acid in Miso that makes it a powerful detoxifying food!  This is a daily nutritional supplement made 100% from organic food.

And – get ready for this – it contains no sugar.  It is naturally savory, full of umami flavor – if you will, and deeply satisfying.  It is a great way to start and end your day, and for anywhere inbetween.

There’s still about another week before this new recipe becomes available online, but in the meantime we are running a special deal on our organic Moringa.  Check out our limited buy one get one free warehouse special!
