    As a gal who grew up eating buckwheat pancakes and bulgur wheat pilaf, I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to announce a Bob’s Red Mill giveaway! Whether you’re looking to eat more whole grains or simply want to eat more “real” food that isn’t full of artificial ingredients, Bob is your man.

    These days, navigating the grocery store aisles can be intimidating. Rows and rows of brightly lit stores feature pretty boxes making big claims: all natural, gluten free, organic, whole grain, etc. You name it, products are claiming it.

    The fact is, Bob’s Red Mill has been offering real, natural, whole grain products for decades. Bottom line:? If Bob’s name is on the package, you can feel good about serving it to your family!

    Need a little inspiration? Here are a few of my favorite recipes using Bob’s products:

    Lentils: Lentils & Bulgur Wheat with Caramelized Onions
    Brown Rice: Creamy Brown Rice with Bacon and Corn
    Whole Wheat Pastry Flour: Chocolate Zucchini Bread
    Bulgur Wheat: Stuffed Peppers with Beef & Bulgur Wheat

    In honor of today’s giveaway, I am sharing a delicious, creamy and satisfying smoothie full of protein, fiber and healthy omega 3 fatty acids thanks to Bob’s Red Mill flax seed meal. Busy morning? Place everything but the ice in the blender, refrigerate overnight then blend with ice in the morning.

      1. Did you add in all of the spices? My smoothies usually end up on the brown side due to the cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices I add. :) Let me know if that helps!
