TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: SooFoo Whole Grains & Legumes

Sandwiched between holiday feasting and Valentine’s Day sweets, January is “Healthy Food Month” at THE NIBBLE. Our first few Top Picks of the year are foods that are delicious and healthy, to start the year on America’s second most popular New Year’s resolution: lose weight/eat healthier (first on the list is better money management).

SooFoo, a blend of nine* whole grains and legumes, was invented by the person who created SKYY vodka. He blended it at home for his own healthy eating plan, and found many ways to use the versatile food:

  • As a nutritious substitute for white rice—in jambalaya, for example
  • As a substitute for other grains—for example, SooFoo tabbouleh, or mixed with ground turkey for healthy sloppy joes
  • Baked in a casserole
  • In green salads and vegetable salads
  • In pilaf and other rice dishes
  • In soups
  • With cooked greens (chard, collards, kale, mustard greens)

    SooFoo can be used in a multitude of recipes.

  • With international flavors (Asian, Mediterranean, Southwestern, etc.)
  • With mushrooms
  • With pesto or tomato sauce
    Soon, friends and family who tasted the all-natural, low-fat, sodium- and cholesterol-free blend encouraged him to market it. The name, SooFoo, is a contraction of “super good food.”

    SooFoo proves that “better for you” can taste better, too. Add it to your meal plan for variety, texture and flavor.
