Eating a balanced breakfast is the most important thing to do, and eating local is something that I believe in as much as possible. There are many locally produced food products that can fit into your daily routine. These are some new locally produced foods that these companies have sent me recently which I have tasted, of course my flavour preferences may be the opposite of yours.
One newcomer to the all-natural nut butters world, is Bare Butter, a company that produces a variety of nut butters and delivers them by bike. I thought this was pretty cool, it’s a great product and its sustainable as well. I tasted several of their flavours and my absolute favourite was the Choco Haze. You can order their products off their website here and then receive you products delivered to you at home or at the office by bike. For now we do online orders delivered to your house by bike! You can find them on Twitter @Bare_Butter
Another new product, is the Love Crunch Carrot Cake from Nature’s Path Foods, it was like eating carrot cake with a crunch except in this case it is granola not an actual slice of carrot cake, it is best eaten sprinkled on vanilla or plain yogurt or in a bowl with Avalon milk.
If you eat Gluten Free, then you will want to try the Cloud 9 Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Mix and bake your favourite breakfast cookies and other baked goods at home! You can find them on Twitter @Cloud9NewWest
Vancouver is fortunate to have many local producers of great food products to start your morning!
