A Dietician Approved Lunch

A Dietician Approved Lunch

Charlotte loves our Miso Tempeh Bowl! We asked her what would be a perfect Mosaic lunch or a quick but impactful dinner, and here's her take:    "This veggie bowl is brimming with gut-friendly foods like tempeh and miso. Tempeh is one of the highest sources of plant-based protein. It’s made from fermented soybeans along with various grains and seeds, making it rich in fiber, too. Eating tempeh has been shown to increase concentrations of good gut bacteria, in large part thanks to its prebiotic fiber content. Miso is a traditional Japanese paste made from fermented soybeans that adds a salty...

Aside from the zero prep time needed for this vegan smoothie, the easiest thing about it is the 6 ingredients inside. This simple, but complex and refreshing smoothie is earthy, yet crisp but sweet and ready to blend whenever you need it.  Here's why we love it:  Strawberries: Aside from the taste and gorgeous color of this delicious summer berry, they're one of the best sources of vitamin C and manganese you can find.

A Dietician Approved Breakfast

 Charlotte loves our Peanut Butter, Banana, and Cacao Oats-It's the grown-up version of your favorite childhood snack. We swapped the jelly for potassium-packed bananas and added cacao nibs for a dark, bitter crunch. Here's what she has to say about this nutrient packed, filling breakfast. "This oat bowl contains not one but two nutritious whole grains: oats and quinoa. Oats are a staple in my morning routine.

Summer Entertaining for Plant Based and Meat Eating Guests

Summer Entertaining for Plant Based and Meat Eating Guests

Summertime, and the grillin's easy. Whether you're entertaining a family of fully plant based guests or you're expecting company with large appetites and preferences all across the board, here are my few tips to keep everyone full, happy and ready for seconds:  As a best practice, always grill any veggies first before any animal products and use separate grilling tools and serving utensils to avoid any potential cross-contamination  Invest in labeling! Since most BBQs are family-style, tent cards or labels for each dish as vegan or vegetarian will help eliminate any confusion for your guests while you are busy hosting or manning the grill. Intimidated by creating...

Family Time Made Easy, And Delicious

Family Time Made Easy, And Delicious

Now let me start by saying, I truly love to cook.  When my wife, Nikita, and I found our first apartment together, having ample space for us to cook for guests was our number one search criteria.  We loved that little one bedroom (it’s where I started Mosaic!), and while we lived there, I’d cook 3-5 nights a week. And then along came little Adrian, now 2 years old… and not long after, baby Zoe now 6 months old. And now cooking is one of a half dozen hobbies that has to fight for a slot on my packed weekend dance card, and...

Introducing Smoothies!

Introducing Smoothies!

Today is the day! We have officially launched smoothies, our coolest product category yet. After tasting our lineup of 9 flavors, our resident dietician, Charlotte Martin weighed in on why they’re so awesome:   When evaluating the nutritional quality of a new product I take a look at both the nutrition facts label, specifically the fiber, protein, and added sugar content, and the ingredients list. I first look for added sugar content, and, if there is any, I’d like to see sugar listed towards the end of the ingredient list. When it comes to smoothies, I’d look for little to no added...
