  • What’s your favorite Rhythm Superfoods snackMy favorite Rhythm snacks are nostalgia-driven.  Ranch dressing was not a thing in my life until I came to The University of Texas.  And then I put ranch on everything!  I love Rhythm’s Kool Ranch Kale Chips and Ranch Carrot Sticks.
  • How do you get more plants into your diet? My favorite ways are to replace pasta with veggie noodles and to puree veggies into sauces.
  • What do you like to do in your free time? Any favorite hobbies?  I would spend my life on the golf course with my husband and kids, if I could.
  • Favorite restaurant spot that has vegetarian and/or vegan options?  Matt’s El Rancho!  It’s an Austin, TX institution!
  • What’s your favorite plant-based food/recipe?  Ratatouille – I love the movie, too!

  • What’s your favorite Rhythm Superfoods snackRanch Carrot Sticks. The flavor is great and I love the fact that they are high in dietary fiber and potassium!
  • How do you get more plants into your diet? The quickest way that I get more plants into my daily diet is by drinking cold pressed juices.  Especially when I’m taking a road trip and it gets difficult to find healthy food options, juices are portable and convenient and packed with goodness.
  • What do you like to do in your free time? Any favorite hobbies?  Baking and landscape photography.  Baking is something I’ve always loved to do for people and I find the process to be a stress release.  Photography provides me great opportunities for adventure and being outdoors, seeing new places and meeting new people.

Rhythm Superfoods Team Mini Retreat
August 3, 2018

On July 24th the Rhythm Superfoods team stepped away from our desks to enjoy some of our favorite parts of Austin and beyond. Our mini retreat was filled with great food, team bonding and learning more about some of our favorite superfoods!

We started the morning off at the Rhythm office enjoying breakfast tacos from Torchy’s Tacos before driving to our first stop, Boggy Creek Farm. Located in East Austin, Boggy Creek Farm is one of the country’s first urban farms and home to one of the oldest existing homes in Austin. Fun fact, Austin use to be the spinach capital of the U.S.! Our friends at Boggy Creek Farm generously gave us some okra and cucumbers to enjoy in the office. We also learned that many Austin restaurants source their produce from Boggy Creek Farm. It’s great to be reminded that the community of Austin shares our passion for fruits and vegetables and a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

After our morning stop at the farm, we headed to CB’s Lounge at Stubb’s to dive deeper into what it means to be a part of the Rhythm Superfoods team. The team tasted some exciting new snacks while thinking about how we can better ourselves individually (challenging each other to improve our gardening skills with a gardening challenge) and as a team. Of course, our next activity also involved food because our team loves to eat. We watched (and later tasted) a fun and informative cooking demo from The Naked Bite, an organization focused on teaching and catering “plant forward” meals. Chef Amber taught us how to make raw cacao nut truffles and spicy tropical cauliflower ceviche with coconut milk and peanuts – both delicious vegan items!

Next we hopped on a duck boat for a tour of the city by land and water as we learned about the history of downtown Austin on our way to the water. The heat didn’t stop us from seeing some of Austin’s greatest sights including the Historic Sixth Street, the State Capitol Building, the Governor’s mansion and the beautiful Lake Austin.

Back on land, we headed out of Austin to Dripping Springs Hill Country Casitas. We continued our theme of learning about growing produce with a trip to Hawk’s Shadow Winery. Our curious team had lots of questions on the process of making wine. We enjoyed great views of the Texas Hill Country with our wine tasting and appetizers from Gourmet Gals. I especially enjoyed the beet & hummus bruschetta featuring our Naked Beet Chips! The team enjoyed a delicious dinner and catching up with old (and new) team members.

The next morning over breakfast we brainstormed innovative superfood snack products and flavors and ways to make our current products even better. We are so grateful that our team shares a passion for eating right with snacks that are both flavorful and nutrient dense. We are already looking forward to learning more about growing produce and enjoying great food and company at our next retreat!

Finding Our Rhythm During Austin’s Hot Summer
September 11, 2015

Rhythm Superfoods kept busy this summer in Austin, Texas with a variety of events including yoga (LOTS of yoga), Bike Austin, music events, volunteering at a local food bank, and good ol’ back to school fairs.

Yoga On the Roof, Summer at the Springs, Bike Austin

If you live in Austin there’s a pretty good chance you participated in at least one of the healthy lifestyle events we attended under the hot Texas sun. Austin is known for being a fit community and what better way to make hungry post-workout consumers happy than to feed them kale chips. This summer we participated in Yoga On the Roof at Whole Foods Lamar throughout July, Summer at the Springs – a free yoga event by Wanderlust Yoga at Barton Springs on Monday nights, and Bike Austin’s Hottest Day of the Year Ride. We could win awards for the tan lines we’ve acquired along the way…

 

Welcome Campers Wild Honey Pie Austin Premiere Party

As one of the sponsors for The Wild Honey Pie Welcome Campers Music Series Season 3, we attended the Austin Premiere Party at The Parish in July. The night was full of music, fun people, and last but not least Rhythm Superfoods’ Kale Chips! Check out the music series here: http://www.thewildhoneypie.com.

 

Volunteering

Twice this summer Rhythm Superfoods employees volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry. Lending a helping hand however we can is something we pride ourselves in. Want to get involved? Numerous volunteer opportunities await you: https://www.austinfoodbank.org.

 

Back to School

‘Tis that inevitable time of year. School is in session (or soon to be at least). Hopefully you had the chance to sample Rhythm Superfoods Kale Chips and Broccoli Bites at one of the many Whole Foods Back to School Vendor Fairs in August. We even attended Texas A&M’s Back to School Vendor Daze during the week students were moving in because our Kale Chips are now available at the campus stores!

 

We’re sad to see summer go, but excited for fall and winter events we have lined up. Be on the lookout for Rhythm Superfoods Field Marketing Team demoing in stores and at special events!
