  • Simply Summer Chip Challenge: Third Place

    Thanks to all who entered our Simply Summer Chip Challenge! All of the recipes submitted looked delicious, and it was very hard to pick our favorites. This week we'll be sharing our top three favorite recipes with you from the dozens of delicious options submitted.

    In third place - BBQ Tomato Zucchini Patties submitted by Isabelle Lebel:

    We loved this recipe for its wholesomeness and simplicity. Using the savory flavors of our BBQ tomato chips to contrast some of the lighter and more aromatic flavors of the zucchini patties makes for a well-balanced entree.

    BBQ Zucchini Patties (1)

    Ingredients (8 patties):
    -1 large zucchini
    -1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (if possible, freshly grated)
    -1/4 tsp paprika
    -1 garlic clove, minced
    -1 egg
    -1 bag BBQ Tomato Simply Protein Chips, crushed
    -1-2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil (for cooking)

    Steps:
    -Grate the zucchini, then remove excess water (very important!) by putting the grated zucchini in paper towels or a cheese cloth and squeezing to release the water
    -Beat egg with hand whip, then combine with drained grated zucchini, Parmesan cheese, paprika, minced garlic, and crushed protein chips
    -Using a heaping table spoon, form 8 patties
    -Heat oil in a pan over medium heat, then add patties and cook until golden brown (about 3-4 minutes/side).

  • 5 Easy Ways to Spruce Up Your Home This Summer

    With long days and plenty of sunshine, summer is the perfect time to get creative with DIY projects. You may not have time for a full-blown renovation, but periodically refreshing your home with easy projects is a great way to shake things up and revitalize both yourself and your space. Here are some simple spruce-ups to try this summer.

    1. Plant a garden.

    While springtime gets the most press for planting, midsummer is a fine time to start a garden—and nothing will rejuvenate your backyard more. Vegetables like broccoli, spinach, and kale are perfect for second season planting, as well as flowers like pansies, poppies, and sweet peas. Worried that your black thumb can’t handle a whole garden? Start small with a planter of herbs—cilantro, chives, and parsley are all good choices.

    2. Create a gallery wall.

    Turn those memories of summer fun into a gallery wall that you can enjoy all year long. Gallery walls are a wonderful way to let your personality shine through because they’re so versatile and can showcase anything from family photos to favorite works of art. Check out Pinterest for ideas, or get started with one of these tutorials instead.

    If space is an issue, fill a collage frame instead. You won’t have to worry about spacing each frame perfectly, either.

    3. Make a fire pit.

    Whether you’re enjoying a few drinks with friends, or making s’mores with your kids, there are few things better than cozying up to a warm fire on a cool summer night. You can build one yourself, or let Home Depot do the heavy lifting. It can be as inexpensive or elaborate as you’d like, making it an accessible project for anyone. Arrange a few Adirondack chairs around it, and you’re all set for outdoor entertaining.

    4. Paint an accent wall.

    The fastest way to brighten up a room is to paint it, but who wants to spend the dog days of summer on such a laborious project? Instead of painting the entire room, try painting an accent wall instead. Not only does an accent wall take less time, but it also allows you to be bold with your color choice and style.

    5. Befriend backyard birds.

    Bring some life into your yard by setting up a bird feeder, or better yet, a hummingbird feeder. It’s quick, inexpensive, and fun to see which birds live in your area.

    Keep squirrels at bay by hanging your feeder on a metal post, which they’ll have difficulty scaling. You can also use safflower seeds instead of sunflower seeds, since squirrels don’t enjoy munching on them as much.

  • "Hi, You've Reached Simply Protein..."

    10840659873_6e77fe06d5_zAs the creators of the SimplyProtein bar, we want our work environment to reflect our products' ability to renew one's energy .

    We love hearing stories from customers who tell us how our SimplyProtein bars help give them the extra energy boost they need to get through their day. Stories like those inspire us to find new ways to boost our energy as a company, both in the new products we deliver to our customers, and the way we work together on the Wellness Foods team.

    That's why we're experimenting this month with disconnecting the phones in our main office. By minimizing unnecessary and redundant ways of communicating, we're hoping to simplify our workflow and create a  more energetic workplace.

    On one hand, this could help us streamline our communication into fewer channels. On the other, we could wind up with collectively much fuller email inboxes, and spending more time clicking at a keyboard. We're going to give the experiment two weeks, updating on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn along the way.

    Customer service calls will still be answered, of course, but vendors, cold-callers, and solicitors take note: email, snail mail, and even carrier pigeons will have a better chance of reaching us at Wellness Foods HQ.

    Would your workplace benefit from fewer unexpected calls?
