Celebrate our 2nd Anniversary! April 14 2017
Wow! I cannot believe that two years ago today I hit the button that made the Julie’s Beet Website Live! That’s right, today marks our second anniversary. I’m not sure I knew exactly what I was getting into 2 years ago but it has been an amazing adventure. The best part has been getting to share my knowledge of food and our amazing artisans with all of you.
In honor of our second anniversary we are having a Two is Always Better than One Sale. This is true of shoes, socks, glasses of wine and the products from our marketplace. We’ve featured products from artisans who joined the collection in our second year. Just add any of their products to your cart between now and April 30 and we’ll automatically add a second product from the same artisan to your shipment at no extra charge. That gives you two times the opportunity to taste and experiment with these amazing items. The artisans included in the sale are Artion Greek Foods, Cacao Prieto, Due Cellucci Tomato Sauces, EssieSpice, Paul + Pippa, Rick’s Picks and Tiny But Mighty Popcorn. You can shop the entire sale here. Visit our Facebook page during the sale to learn more about each of these artisan.
Who knows what the next 365 days will bring but I know I cannot find out. What will the new food trends be? What new artisans will be find to add to the marketplace? I hope you’ll stick with me for the journey ahead.
Granola- The Perfect Food for Anytime of Day April 29 2016
Granola is such a versatile food that I always have some in my cabinet. It is the perfect breakfast with the addition of some yogurt, milk or fresh fruit. I often start my day with this delicious combination. Granola is also great at other times of the day because it packs a lot of nutrition into something very tasty. It will get you through your afternoon slump and also propel you on that long hike!
I first met Lucy Benjamin of Lucy’s Granola last June at the Fancy Food Show. I’ve been hooked on her granola ever since. She makes her granola in small batches in East Blue Hill, Maine. From the pictures I’ve seen this looks like a great place and the granola produced there is just as beautiful as the nature that surrounds it. Lucy’s Original Blend is a mixture of Rolled Oats, Coconut, Almonds, Wheat Bran, Wheat Flakes, Cranberries, Raisins, Spelt Flakes, Wheat Germ, Flax Meal, Canola Oil, Maple Syrup, Honey, & Salt. I love the tartness & sweetness of the dried fruit paired with the crunch from the perfectly baked almonds and oats. The Really Nutty Pecan adds a lot of pecans to the already delicious mix. Both flavors are currently on sale in our marketplace for just $10 a bag. Trust me, this granola is worth every penny. Quantities are limited so don't wait. Start shopping by clicking here.
