Less Can Be More!

Less really can be more, right? Everyday we are confronted with mountains of choices and the reality of 24 hours to spend. Deciding what makes it into your life takes some thought and intention. It can feel great to find something that adds to a little simplicity to your day, especially when you don’t have to compromise the quality you value to do it. We know that the food you put on your table is not an exception to that and so we’ve put together some ideas on how to simplify. 

Who doesn’t like pizza? Grabbing your favorite take out is always a treat but pizza doesn’t have to be a special occasion. Right now you can get Tandoor Chef Naan Pizza ready to go in the oven for just 2/$5.That and a quick salad and dinner is served. Making your own pizza can be quick and easy too! Plus, it is a place you can add lots of veggies without much effort at all. We’ve got what you need to have the pie of your dreams in your oven in minutes! Check out this stronger together article full of pizzariffic ideas! 

Start with Rising Moon Ravioli from the freezer section, then add some Organic Woodstock Frozen Spinach and Mediterranean Organic Sun Dried Tomatoes and you can serve up something delicious in just a few minutes. Plus, these are all on sale right now so it will be easy on your pocket book too. We are also excited to introduce to our freezer section Kite Hill Almond Milk Ricotta Tortellini or Ravioli. These are perfect for those looking for plant-based and/or dairy-free option. Add your favorite pesto, red or white sauce and you are in for a treat! We even have a vegan white sauce! 


What’s for dinner isn’t the only place where less can be more in the food world. We are excited to show off our new line of stasher reusable silicone storage bags. You can even cook in them! There are times a hard container just isn’t what you are looking for any more than the single use Ziploc bag is. Stasher has found a solution to that. Come by the Petoskey store and check them out! 

Along the same vein, we have a selection of To-Go Ware stainless steel lunch containers and bamboo utensil sets. If are looking for just the right vessel to replace single-use cups in your life, we’ve got you covered there too. We have a colorful selection of Klean Kanteen double-walled hot/cold cups, water bottles and even two sizes of insulated food containers. Sometimes having the right set up for lunch helps you get motivated to start packing it. Check out this collection of easy lunch recipes from strongertogether.coop. 

We hope this gets your gears turning on ways to simplify your week while still having the high-quality delicious food you want! Once you start finding ways to keep it simple, the possibilities are endless. Until next time, have a great week!
