Growing Rule Breaker in the Nutrition Greenhouse

Growing Rule Breaker in the Nutrition Greenhouse
I don't want to brag (okay, maybe just a little)...but Rule Breaker has been named a participant in Pepsico's Nutrition Greenhouse Program, a natural food brand accelerator. You might not be aware of it, but Pepsico is behind some great,  better-for-you brands such Kevita, Naked, Bubly, and Sabra to name a few.  As part of Nutrition Greenhouse, we get to tap into their genius and experience, and learn how to bring Rule Breaker to more people, all while staying true to ourselves and our mission. We're in great company with the other 9 brands participating in Nutrition Greenhouse (see photo).  We just finished our first group giveaway on Instagram, and there will be more.  Congratulations to all!  Nancy Kalish, Chief Rule Breaker Continue reading

Peanut Allergy Update

Peanut Allergy Update
Could a new treatment reduce symptoms of kids with severe peanut allergies?  New research published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that being exposed to tiny amounts of peanuts over a long period of time eventually allowed the majority of children in the study to eat the equivalent of about 2 peanuts without serious symptoms. This could prove lifesaving.  But DO NOT try this at home.  The special peanut powder-filled capsules used in the study could be available through your doctor by next summer.  In the mean time, stick to foods you know are guaranteed peanut-free. All Rule Breaker Snacks are free of peanuts and made in a bakery where no peanuts (or any top 8 allergens) are allowed.  Try our new P'Nutter Chocolate Chip, which tastes like peanuts without the nuts.  Snack Safe!

Must-Have Vegan Cooking Tools: Onion Goggles!

Must-Have Vegan Cooking Tools: Onion Goggles!
I love onions.  Tears and irritated eyes, not so much.  To the rescue:  onion goggles!  Every vegan, vegetarian or any kind of cook should own a pair.  My faves are the RSVP Tearless Kitchen Onion Googles (about $18 on Amazon). Once you put them on, foam prevents those tear-causing vapors from reaching your eyes.  You can breathe deeply and fear not.  So you look a little silly--who cares?  You will be able to chop onions with abandon.

Getting Down and Dirty

Getting Down and Dirty

I grew up in New York City, and so I never had a garden until about 4 years ago.  But despite being a late bloomer (sorry, I couldn’t resist!), I love growing flowers, fruits and veggies on the Rule Breaker terrace high above Brooklyn.  No matter how bad the day has been, watering, deadheading, or getting my hands into the warm soil gives me an instant sense of peace and reconnection to the planet.  And there’s nothing like eating a strawberry or tomato that you’ve grown yourself.  It sure makes it easier to be a vegan.

The Secret to Vegan Lattes

The Secret to Vegan Lattes

Right now, I’m obsessed with Ripple Plant-Based Milk, which is made from pea protein. I’m a huge iced latte fan, but had problems finding a neutral, dairy-free milk that didn’t have an overpowering taste and didn’t end up looking curdled (ugh!).  But Ripple works great in iced lattes and coffee in general. It’s also great when you’re craving some Rule Breaker brownies with “milk.”

Brownie Superfood Smoothie Recipe

Brownie Superfood Smoothie Recipe

Our friend Krysten, the brains behind Krysten's Kitchen, put together a delicious superfood smoothie recipe featuring one of our Rule Breaker Deep Chocolate Brownies. We first met Krysten at Expo West and she has been hooked on our blondies and brownies ever since then! She took our Deep Chocolate Brownie to the next level by adding it to her smoothie. Check out her Brownie Superfood Smoothie recipe below.   

Brownie Superfood Smoothie Recipe

1 cup dairy milk of choice (Ed note: If you can't tolerate dairy, use your favorite milk alternative instead.
2 scoops of Nuzest Chocolate Plant Based Protein Powder*
4-6 pieces of frozen zucchini
1 small piece of banana
1 TB maca powder**
1 Rule Breaker Deep Chocolate Brownie

Directions: Throw everything in a blender, blend until smooth. Drizzle with your favorite nut butter, roasted coconut butter or your favorite granola. Get creative and enjoy your brownie smoothie!

* Krysten's Kitchen loves this protein powder because it's low in carbs, high in protein and low in sugar. It's made with clean ingredients and tastes chocolatey. Any protein powder will work. Krysten recommends you use chocolate, though.

** Krysten uses the Organic Maca Powder from Sunfood.
