The story behind our fresh citrus juices

The summer months bring out the best in fresh fruit. With our stores overflowing with sweet, irresistible flavors, it’s hard to ignore these healthy treats. One of my favorite things about summer is taking fresh fruit home every week to savor those distinct juices, which more often than not wind up dripping down my chin.

Lunds and Byerly’s Wild Rice Soup

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Our soup recipe originated in the early ‘80s in the Byerly’s St. Paul deli. It was produced in small batches and packaged in mason jars. Lunds also made a wild rice soup, albeit a slightly different recipe with both white and wild rice and chicken. A few years after Lunds and Byerly’s merged, we consolidated our wild rice soups and the Byerly’s version became standard in our delis.

The whole story on whole grains

Have you heard the recommendation to make half the grains you consume each day whole grains? It’s not always easy deciphering what constitutes a whole grain so let’s dive into what it really is and how to get your fill.

Whole grains are complex carbohydrates rich in antioxidants, B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, and fiber. The term “whole” means that all three parts of the grain are present—germ, bran, and endosperm. A whole grain can be crushed, rolled, cracked, or even ground into flour as long as the end product contains all original parts of the seed. Whole grains include oats, corn, bulgur, brown and wild rice, amaranth, quinoa, and many more.
