Toni’s OatMEAL is now featured at Sigona’s Farmer’s Market located at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, CA. Toni wanted to meet the demand of her growing clientele and offer convenient access for her local customers.

John Nava, General Manager and Grocery Buyer of Sigona’s commented “We’re ardent supporters of our local food artisans. Healthy, high-quality and whole foods is what our customers have learned to expect from us.”

Sigona’s offers everything from fresh olive-oil to organic produce and specialty wines and cheeses. Now with Toni’s OatMEAL added to the line-up, customers can also come by for a uniquely healthy meal solution.

What makes Toni’s OatMEAL so different is that it’s a complete meal, boasting one-third the protein people need in a day, provides sustained energy and is simple to make.

It’s not conventional oatmeal. Instead of eating pure carbohydrates, it’s designed to metabolize slowly, to keep people full and fueled for hours. The hidden benefit to this of course, is that when people are satiated and satisfied, they tend to eat less, have fewer cravings and can hit their goal of leaning down.

There is an extra benefit for athletes, in that it provides sustainable energy. Toni’s OatMEAL has recently been endorsed by Bob Anderson, Founder of Runner’s World Magazine and the Double Road Race Federation for it’s ability to provide him with the sustained energy he needs for his runs.

Toni’s OatMEAL is being offered at introductory pricing for a four week period, beginning October 16 through November 16. She has recently introduced Grab and Go Cups and 7-meal pouches in all five flavors and wants to meet the needs of families and athletes who are looking for convenient foods that are healthy too.

Five Cup Sampler Large-ProfessionalDelicious flavors include Sweet & Creamy Coconut-Blueberry, Crunchy Cranberry-Walnut, Savory Cinnamon-Raisin, Sweet & Spicy Ginger Apple-Raisin and her newest in the line-up, Tart Cherry Chocolate-Almond.

Sampling events at Sigona’s are scheduled through the next several weeks so people can try all the flavors and take advantage of the introductory reduced pricing.

Sunday, October 25th 11am-1:30pm

Friday, October 30th 11am-2:30pm

Toni’s OatMEAL Protein Poppers

15 minutes | Makes 24

New from Toni’s Test Kitchen!

Three simple ingredients, no-baking, and deliciously healthy, these high-protein poppers are simple to make and a guilt-free alternative to typical treats. Guaranteed to stave off hunger and delectably fulfilling. Share them with friends and neighbors, bring them to a holiday party, and make them your “go-to” snack to get through the next few festive weeks. They passed the Toni’s Kitchen test when served this weekend at my daughters 27th birthday brunch.

They were a hit!

WHAT TO BUY:

2 Cups Toni’s OatMEAL**Any flavor is delicious so choose your favorite. We used Sweet & Creamy Coconut-Blueberry for this recipe, and Crunchy Cranberry-Walnut would be another great option.

**Available online here. Use coupon code BETTERBREAKFAST for free shipping when you order any four flavors. Ships in one business day.

1 12 oz Jar Smooth Almond Butter at room temperature (you may substitute peanut butter if you prefer)

1/2 Cup Chopped Raw Almonds (you may substitute with walnuts)

Optional: White Powdered Sugar

WHAT TO DO:

Place two cups Toni’s OatMEAL in a large bowl. Add chopped almonds and almond butter.

Mix together with a spoon or use your hands to mix thoroughly. Mixture will be crumbly. Using a small ice cream scoop press mixture firmly to form a ball. You can also use your hands and roll them just as easily. Make sure they are “bite sized” for best results. If they are too large and are bitten into, they can crumble so smaller treats that can be popped into your mouth work best!

This part is completely optional: You can roll your poppers into powdered sugar, or a combination of cocoa powder and white powdered sugar (about half of each).

Here’s a beautiful assortment of Toni’s OatMEAL Protein Poppers. Have a few crumbly morsels remaining? Sprinkle them over non-fat plain Greek yogurt. This chef deserved a perk! Enjoy!
