B Corp Companies | http://mybakingheart.com #StonyfieldBlogger

Have you heard of B Corps? If not, no worries! After working with organic companies for the past several years, I’m just now learning about this growing global movement of people using business as a force for good™ myself. The best news is, Stonyfield is now a Certified B Corporation™!

Certified B Corporations™ redefine success in business. Individually, B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, and aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems.

Through the power of their collective voice, one day all companies will compete to be best for the world™, and society will enjoy a more shared and durable prosperity for all.

Some of my favorite companies like King Arthur Flour, Method, Preserve Products, Pukka, Purely Elizabeth & Pete and Gerry’s are already B Corp Certified, and this makes me feel like I’m doing a small part in helping the environment when I’m stocking the pantry with their products.

Lemon Almond Butter Bars

Since Chris’ work schedule takes him away from us at night, we won’t be able to celebrate his birthday with our usual dinner & cake tonight. I wanted to send him off to work with a portable sweet treat, so when these Lemon Almonds & Unsalted Organic Almond Butter from Woodstock Foods arrived, I knew just what I’d make.

Chris loves anything with lemon, and these bars did not disappoint! Especially since I also included Stonyfield’s Double Cream Yogurt. It’s so rich and creamy, I’m using it in everything from sauces & dips to baking sweets like these Lemon Almond Butter Bars. They’re sweet & chewy, with a little tang from the lemon and crunch from the almonds. Just perfect for picnics, lunch boxes or celebrating something special!

Raspberry Cheesecake Shortbread Bars

A few weeks ago, I posted to Instagram that I was asked to be a part of Walkers Shortbread Society… which means, shortbread all day, err day. Seriously, when this month’s shipment arrived, I opened the box and it was more shortbread than I could ever imagine! So many cookies, so little time, right? Since […]

Berry Blast Smoothie

Now that I’m no longer eating for three, it’s definitely time to get back on the wagon… the healthy wagon, that is. I didn’t gain as much as you’d think, being pregnant with twins. In those first few weeks postpartum, I lost almost all of that baby weight. Hopefully, the last few pounds that are […]
