Eating Clean & staying on top of your New Years Goals doesn't have to be complicated. Many people consider cleaning up their diets & choosing wiser food options. We encourage you to consider a whole food approach to your new routine and not to be overwhelmed & fooled by "weight loss fads". Choosing wholefoods will not only improve your overall health, but get you back in touch with your kitchen. Even if life is busy, choosing to take a little extra time to make wise food choices will actually save you time, money & you will feel the benefits faster. At Cowan's we are making it our goal to keep it easy for you!

Love Bread but starting to have a love/hate relationship with it? Sourdough is not only delicious, but it is a natural alternative to those avoiding gluten.

It is also available with your Fresh Box for an additonal $25 (for 5 loaves). PS. Because there is no sugar added to the dough, to rise, the bacteria eats at the gluten containing in the wheat which reduces the gluten overall once its baked - no suitable for celiac but a popular choice for those avoiding high gluten foods.
