ORRVILLE, Ohio, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While it's easy to indulge in comfort foods during the dark days of winter, the lighter days of spring usher in opportunity to renew our eating habits. The season, associated with renewal and rebirth, provides a bounty of produce and when accompanied by ancient grains, such as truRoots organic quinoa, legumes and seeds offer endless opportunities for perfectly delicious meals.
truRoots Ancient Grains feature the highest quality organic ingredients that are harvested by traditional farmers using certified organic standards and time-honored practices. One of these ancient practices includes sprouting, an age-old tradition dating back to over 5,000 years ago. Sprouting helps to break down the protective coating of the grain, which helps unlock its natural goodness.
truRoots makes it easy to enjoy and incorporate ancient grains into your diet by offering a few recipe suggestions:
- Peanut Chocolate Chia Quinoa Poppers – truRoots Organic Chia Seeds mixed with a combination of dates, peanut butter and cocoa powder provide a great on-the-go snack alternative to sweets.
- Sprouted Quinoa Mandarin Fruit Salad – Try a spin on the traditional salad by adding truRoots Organic Sprouted Quinoa to the mix. Combining the natural sweetness of fruit with the earthiness of ancient grains delivers a great tasting lunch or shareable dish for spring gatherings.
- Cilantro Lime Brown Rice – Swap out traditional brown rice with truRoots Organic Germinated Brown Rice. The addition of lime juice and fresh cilantro creates an instant side staple to accompany a variety of spring meals.
truRoots products are available at natural and conventional grocers. Varieties include: Quinoa, Sprouted Quinoa, Germinated Brown Rice, Sprouted Mung Beans, Sprouted Green Lentils and Chia Seeds. For more information about the products, visit www.truroots.com.
The truRoots brand was founded on the philosophy that people should understand not only what's in their food, but where that food comes from. That's why truRoots forges personal connections with farmers and supports techniques that are rooted in tradition. These commitments have helped truRoots become a leader in the whole grains and sprouted foods category.
