Whether you’re vegan or prefer animal-based protein, we have great new options for you.

We all agree the quality of the food you eat is important, and this applies especially to proteins.

For the carnivores out there, we’ve got new Organic Prairie Mighty beef jerkies and bars. A farmer-owned cooperative, Organic Prairie is one of the pioneers of truly organic and grass-fed meat production. The new jerkies and bars exemplify this — 100-percent grass-fed, USDA-certified organic beef. Besides the obvious benefits of beef having been raised without growth hormones, antibiotics, or pesticide-laden feeds, grass-fed beef generally contains higher levels of healthy omega-3 fatty acids than meat raised on conventional corn-based feeds.

For the herbivores, we have a terrific new alternative milk. Ripple vegan “milks,” in original, vanilla, chocolate, and unsweetened, are made from high quality pea protein, and are free of GMOs, soy, and gluten. Our staff tried these and loved them — the texture is smooth and creamy and the flavor is delicious.
