Superfoods Swaps

Once a new superfood is declared, it starts to pop up everywhere. From restaurant menus to your local grocery store, demand for superfoods is often high (even higher if it aids with weight loss). Unfortunately, with this high demand comes high prices. Luckily, there is a wealth of nutritious foods out there for a fraction of superfood prices. Here are some smart superfood swaps that won’t break the bank.

Quinoa -> Wheat Berries

Quinoa is actually lower in fiber and protein content than wheat berries.

Chia Seeds -> Flax Seeds

While their nutritional content is relatively comparable, flaxseeds contain 9% of the RDA iron while chia seeds contain none.

Coconut Oil -> Virgin Olive Oil

Coconut oil is not ideal for higher heat cooking, while virgin olive oil is best from medium-high heat cooking.

Kale ->  Spinach

If you’re looking for similar nutritional benefits of kale but for a lower price, spinach is a smart option.

Goji Berries -> Blueberries

Both are great sources of antioxidants, however, blueberries are slightly more accessible (and definitely less expensive) than goji berries.

Wheatgrass ->  Broccoli

Broccoli is a smart alternative for wheatgrass as their nutritional content is relatively similar with slight variations in vitamin and mineral content.

Golden berries  -> Apricots

Golden berries tout excellent benefits, but for a much smaller price, apricots can also provide great nutritional benefits.

Salmon -> Sardines

While your taste buds may disagree, sardines are a great swap salmon if its omega 3 fatty acids that you’re looking for.

Other good, affordable foods to incorporate into your diet:

  • Plain yogurt (look for active bacterial cultures)
  • Berries Oatmeal
  • Ginger
  • Eggs
  • Beets
  • Almonds (and other nuts)

While superfoods promise wonderful nutritional and health benefits, it is wise to have a diet that includes variety. Eating the same things over and over can get boring. Plus diet diversity can help maintain healthy gut bacteria.

Sandwiches: One, Two, Done.

When we’re hungry and short on time, we may not make the best snacking decisions. Resist the junk food temptation and check out these quick, two ingredient sandwiches – simple, tasty, and easy enough to throw together when you’re running late.

The “Tomayo”

Toast a slice of crusty bread. While it’s still warm, spread mayo on the bread. Top it with sliced tomatoes (you can stick to red, or try the green or yellow variety), season with salt and pepper to taste, and you’re done!

Ricotta-Honey

Creamy ricotta cheese drizzled with sweet honey will likely taste divine on any type of bread, toasted or not. Spread the ricotta, drizzle honey to your liking, and, if you’d like to take it up a notch, add some pistachios to the mix.

Cucumber & Cream Cheese

Spread cream cheese on untoasted white bread and top with slices of cucumbers. The mix of soft bread, crisp cucumbers and smooth cream cheese is quite refreshing and a breeze to make.

Mustard & Cheddar

Bold flavors are what you can expect from this one. Use multi-grain or rye bread, and spread wholegrain mustard over the slice. Top it with slices of strong cheddar for a simple yet flavorful cheese sandwich.

Do you have an easy, go-to snack when you’re short on time? Any unique, two ingredient sandwich recipes you would like to share? We would love to hear from you! Connect with us on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, LinkedIn and Pinterest.

The Brick Market & Deli – Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

On a sunny Thursday in Pomona, members of the Pomona Chamber of Commerce & City Council, employees from the Pomona Unified school district, and friends from the local Pomona community gathered at The Brick Market and Deli for an exciting day.

Brick Market Pomona, CAOur ribbon cutting ceremony kicked off around 11:30am on February 13, 2014. Entertainment was provided by the Pomona High School drum line and cheerleaders. Tables, chairs, and balloons were set up in the patio area and parking lot with a wide assortment of food samples. These included Stacy’s pita chips and house made hummus, as well as hearty chili, pasta salad, coleslaw and a platter of Boar’s Head meats & cheeses. Samples of baked goods were also brought out and went fairly quickly.

Attendees took advantage of the special discounts as they tried sandwiches and salads from the menu. They mingled and madBrick Market Deli certificatese new friends as they enjoyed their food, while others took some time to browse our market area.

Finally it was time for the ribbon cutting. Kind, supportive words were shared from council members as they welcomed the Brick Market and Deli to the Chamber of Commerce. The ribbon was cut and the festivities continued.

Unfortunately, the heat cut the ceremony shorter than expected. By about 1pm, scraps of samples were left and, with the exception of a few, most of our guests resumed their work day.

We showered with praise for our hard work on opening the place, and providing a fresh, new alternative to the Pomona community. We sincerely appreciate your support and would like to thank everyone who made our ribbon cutting ceremony a success.
