Soba Noodles Star in Salad

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer April 2, 2012

This recipe brings to mind my first days on the job at Outpost. I was amazed by the many strange products on the shelves that I had never seen in any other grocery store. Having worked in the world of conventional grocery stores all of my life, being at Outpost was like walking into a foreign country. I would scour the aisles, read labels and absorb everything I could in efforts to help my customers find products that I, too, had never heard of. There was no computer at my fingertips to do a quick search of tamari, nutritional yeast, gomasio and yes, the soba noodles used in the recipe for today. I learned a lot by trial and error, tasting and, best of all, listening to the audience of Outpost customers.

Slimed: beef mix exposes our conflicted relationship with food

Postscript
By Malcolm Woods March 26, 2012

There has been a lot of talk lately about "pink slime." That's the term a former USDA official gave to a commercially prepared mixture of beef trimmings, dosed with a puff of ammonia to thwart germs and often mixed with ground beef as a cost cutting measure.

Two Burgers for Meatless Monday!

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer March 26, 2012

 

I love veggie burgers but tend to stay away from those that are highly processed and high in sodium. Unfortunately, it's hard to find a recipe for a good meatless burger – if you’ve ever attempted to make them you know - sometimes they just won’t stick together and you end up with more of a veggie crumble than a burger.

A Pocketful of Salad

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer March 19, 2012

 

Pita breads have inspired unlimited recipes from many cuisines. Tasty and low in fat, pita breads can be made into sandwiches, pizzas, appetizers and my favorite – pita chips.  The truth is that pita bread can be served with just about anything.

A Meatless Reuben for St. Pat's

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer March 12, 2012

This scrumptious Meatless Monday recipe is inspired by St. Patrick’s Day, one of the most meat-influenced days of the year. I’ve decided to share a Tempeh Reuben in honor of the holiday. The general taste of this is quite similar to the traditional corned beef sandwich but it has considerably less saturated fat, which gets a big thumbs up from me. If you don’t believe me, just pretend!

A Hearty Irish Lager Stew

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer March 5, 2012

 

 

I wish you were in my kitchen right now and could smell the delicious flavors coming from this hearty stew simmering on my stove.  It would only be better if I could tell you that I had grown these beautiful vegetables in my garden.  There is new snow on the ground and no garden in sight – Outpost is my garden right now with tastes just as good as fresh picked.

An Eggsellent Dinner Idea

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer February 29, 2012

 

I just love having breakfast for dinner! (I also love dinners for breakfast) What’s more – I love eggs – only from Outpost, of course!

If you like eggs, too, you’ll be happy to hear this news: Last year a study from the United States Department of Agriculture found that eggs are 14 percent lower in cholesterol and 64 percent higher in vitamin D than previously thought. That’s 164mg of cholesterol, down from 215mg. Eggciting!

A Mediterranean Meatless Monday

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer February 27, 2012

I remember when Eating Well Magazine published this recipe in 2006. The Mediteranean Diet wasn’t as popular then as it is now – unless you lived in the Mediterranean. It’s now highly rated and is currently the second most popular diet in the country – right behind the DASH (dietray approach to stop hypertension).

Looking for that Meatless Monday recipe again? I’ve come up with another flavor explosion! African Curried Coconut Soup with Chickpeas is so thick it could almost be called a stew. It’s also gluten free.

What is Nutritional Yeast?

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer February 16, 2012

Some of you have asked about an earlier column, in which I suggested sprinkling nutritional yeast on popcorn. Here is a question I received from Julie:

 

 

"Judy, You are the fourth person this week to mention 'nutritional yeast' to me. Can you tell us more about it? What is it, where do you find it, what is it used for, etc? Thanks"

Tempt Them with Tempeh

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer February 13, 2012

 

It’s Meatless Monday again.  Funny how quickly Monday’s roll around!

Well, hold on to your hats – this meatless recipe will knock your socks off. Tempeh Tacos were a hit in my last vegetarian cooking class. I have to admit I’m not normally too crazy about tempeh – it has a beanie and nutty taste by itself, but, like many other soy products it absorbs the flavors of whatever you’re making it with. This recipe is delicious!

Fish Tacos for TGIF!

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer February 10, 2012

 

TGIF! You’ve made it through another week and need to take a break. Living in Wisconsin gives you permission to enjoy the traditional Friday Night Fish Fry, just not the “all you can eat” offering! Almost every restaurant, tavern and many churches have an offering of deep fried fish, French fries, baked potato or potato pancakes, coleslaw, rye bread and a hearty brew or two.

Hey, It's Meatless Monday!

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer February 6, 2012

 

Today is Meatless Monday. Meatless Mondays were established in the US during the first and second world wars to promote voluntary vegetarianism. Americans were asked to reduce their consumption of meat to benefit the economy. Today, the movement is more about nutrition.

It ain't easy being green

I love sprouts, but they don’t lend themselves to vivid and colorful descriptions. They are not sensual and they aren’t complicated. They’re green.

Pass the nuts

In the Aisles
By Paul Sloth December 16, 2011

Walk through the bulk section at an Outpost and you’re likely to stand in awe of the dizzying array of food available in bulk. You can get lost if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

The Natural War of the Words

Postscript
By Malcolm Woods October 17, 2011

A new report is generating buzz in the natural foods industry. The Cornucopia Institute, a Wisconsin-based advocacy group which pushes for sustainable and organic agriculture, tested a number of natural and organic cereal brands and found that many of the cereals labeled as natural contained evidence of genetically modified products (GMOs). Further, the report suggests that “natural” cereals may contain pesticide residues.
