Vegan Wednesday!

Dr. John McDougall, M.D. has been studying, writing and “speaking out” about the effects of nutrition on health for more than 20 years and is one of the “founding fathers” of modern wellness. He believes people should feel great, and should enjoy optimal health for a lifetime.

The McDougall Program teaches people about the benefits of a plant based, heart healthy diet rich in good starches like oatmeal, whole grains, legumes, and vegetables. Dr McDougall is certified as an internist by the Board of Internal Medicine and the National Board of Examiners. He has authorized (or co-authored with his wife, Mary) ten best-selling books about the connection between nutrition and health.

Food For Thought has a wide range of Dr. McDougall's line of foods. His line of heat and eat soups are available in regular and low-sodium varieties. The soup cups are a fast and easy lunch for the vegan on the go. His maple and brown sugar low fat oatmeal is a nutritious and tasty start to the day. McDougall's also has a new line of asian inspired noodle bowls that are out of this world!
Stop in today and try something from Dr. McDougall's!

Gluten-Free Tuesday: Udi's Granola!

It's that time of the year again! With school back in full-swing, easy, healthy snacks are a must for both adults and kids on the go. Granola is a wonderful option, and Udi's has a delicious artisan granola now available!

We carry it at Food For Thought in 5 delicious flavors, including: Original, Hawaiian, Cranberry, Vanilla and Au Naturel. You are sure to find a flavor to get hooked on! Granola is delicious on its own, added into yogurt, used as a topping... The possibilities are endless!

My personal favorite is the vanilla granola. At 120 calories per quarter cup, it is the ideal afternoon pick-me up. It also contains almonds (some of the varieties contain some kind of nut- beware if you have nut allergies!!). It's a light, but satisfying, flavor! And better yet, Udi's Artisan Granola is on sale this month for only $3.89 per 13 ounce bag! Stop in and discover your favorite flavor today!
