Traditional Medicinals LogoTraditional Medicinals lifestyle photos

In 1974, community activist Drake Sadler and fourth-generation herbalist Rosemary Gladstar launched Traditional Medicinals, a medicinal herbal tea company. With the goal of reviving herbalism in North America, they traveled to the source of medicinal plants—often in remote, rural areas. On their travels, they were shocked to discover the poor social, living and working conditions of the mostly indigenous and impoverished herb farmers and wild collectors.

Following the principles of right livelihood, the company pioneered a new ethical sourcing model by promoting organic agriculture, developing long-term equitable and fair trading relationships, and investing in these sourcing communities.

Over four decades later, their teas are still formulated by herbalists, sourced responsibly and tested for quality by plant scientists. Their purposeful mission continues through your conscious choice to support Traditional Medicinals. Hoping to empower consumers to take responsibility for their own health, Traditional Medicinals believes in creating the highest quality products by considering every step of the process from their farms to your pantry, from sustainability and responsible sourcing, to social business practices. Plant Power for a Better You® isn’t just a tagline—it’s their mission.

Guayakí Story

Guayaki photosLike the seed of the mate tree, Guayakí started small on California’s Central Coast in 1996 by two university buddies. Alex Pryor (from Argentina) first introduced yerba mate to David Karr (from California) while attending Cal Poly University in San Luis Obispo. Fast friends and ultimately soul brothers, Alex and David set out to share yerba mate with the world, recognizing that people were in need of a nourishing source of energy and a healthy dose of optimism.

As good fortune would have it, co-founders Alex and David were swiftly joined by three other pioneering partners to round out the original founding group: Don Miguel, Steven Karr and Chris Mann. From two with a vision to five friends on a mission, they channeled their activist mentality to pioneer a revolutionary market-driven regeneration business model that empowers customers to drive tangible change with every purchase.

They first sprouted roots in the fertile grounds of San Luis Obispo, California, nestled comfortably between Santa Barbara and Big Sur. This coastline, riddled with good surf breaks and mountains, provided the perfect backdrop for many extended mate gourd sessions while looking for surf or mountain biking the scenic landscapes. As passionate lifestylers, they were intimately committed to holistic living and a business practice that was philosophically aligned with their love for nature and adventure.

With a blend of West Coast pioneer spirit and Argentine hospitality, the inspired group took to the road to share mate with all those who would listen. Traveling in a mix of VW vans, pickups and RVs, they took the wheel in one hand and the mate gourd in the other to the four corners of the United States. With a strong brew of yerba mate, good tunes, flowers and genuine hospitality, they encouraged keen samplers to develop a relationship with the yerba mate plant.

Now headquartered in Sebastopol, California (a leading hub of craft food and beverage) with a team of cebadores, Guayakí is serving up yerba mate culture and connecting with communities worldwide.

Primal Kitchen founder and New York Times bestselling author, Mark Sisson, reminds us to Eat Like Your Life Depends on It. It means that the power of food can lift you up to new heights to find the greatest amount of pleasure, joy and contentment from every moment possible.

Mark spent three decades researching and educating folks on why food is the key component to achieving and maintaining optimal health. Once an elite endurance athlete, he lost both health and vitality through an oppressive training regimen and a highly inflammatory diet. He vowed to find a way to be as fit, strong and healthy as possible, with the least amount of pain, suffering and sacrifice required.

After extensive research and years of experimenting, Mark regained his health and enjoyment of life by simply changing how he ate. Blown away by the dramatic shifts in his own health that came from simply rethinking his food choices, Mark started to wonder how many tens or hundreds of millions of others might be suffering the same fate.

Primal Kitchen® delivers on its promise to provide uncompromisingly delicious condiments, dressings, marinades and vinaigrettes, avocado oils, collagen protein bars and protein shakes that are full of heart-healthy, natural fats, clean protein, and ingredients rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

The entire Primal Kitchen collection aims to exquisitely satiate while also packing beneficial fats, high quality, clean protein and nutritional ingredients—like avocado oil, collagen, organic herbs and spices.

Sprouts’ Whole30 Approved® Foods & Shopping List from Melissa Hartwig

Article by Melissa Hartwig, co-creator of the Whole30 program

If you follow me, you know I love shopping at Sprouts. While my first stop is always the fresh-cut flowers, the rest of the store is FULL of Whole30-friendly products. So many of you have asked me about my Sprouts hauls, so I’m here to share my personal Sprouts Whole30 shopping list. But first, in case you haven’t heard of our program yet … what IS the Whole30, anyway?

Whole30: A Reset, Not a Diet

Think of the Whole30 like pushing the reset button with your health, habits and relationship with food. For 30 days, you’ll eliminate the foods that are commonly problematic in one of four areas:

  • Cravings and habits
  • Blood sugar regulation and metabolism
  • Digestion
  • Immune system/inflammation

During the elimination, you’ll pay attention to what changes in the absence of these potentially problematic foods: energy, sleep, focus, mood, bloating, digestion, cravings, skin, aches and pains, and more. At the end of the 30 days, you’ll reintroduce those foods one at a time, like a scientific experiment, to identify the foods that may not be working well for you. You’ll use that information to create the perfect, sustainable diet for YOU—grounded in new healthy habits, keeping you looking, feeling, and living your best.

Shopping Guide

Fresh veggies, fruit, and herbs; meat, seafood, and eggs; natural fats; and pantry staples make up the bulk of your Whole30 shopping, but Sprouts makes it even easier!

Rosé All May

If you’re looking for an easy-drinking summer wine, rosé is a crisp, lean, delicious and refreshing option that is easy to shop. Made all around the world, rosé is produced from a variety of red grapes with minimal contact from their grape skins, which results in the soft color.

Shades of Pink

Darker rosé may be slightly richer and can sometimes be a bit fruitier than the paler options, which may suggest floral notes.

Looking for something sweet?

Find one from the U.S., South America or Australia. They’re fruitier, sweeter and usually have a lower alcohol content. Italy, Spain and France will typically provide a crisp and tart wine with an ABV above 11%.

What’s Your Rosé Style?

A wine’s style is represented by its flavor, body and overall taste experience. For Rosé, there are three styles to choose from:

Soft & Off-dry

Offering flavors of berries, cherry, apple and peach. Pairs perfectly with Mexican dishes and spicy curry.


Easy-going & Fruity

Light and refreshing, these styles feature flavors of summer berries and are perfect paired with appetizers, bbq and pizza.


Medium-bodied & Dry

Full flavored with notes of cherry, vanilla, strawberry and even a bit of pepper. Grilled meats, salmon and fresh veggies will make the complete experience for this style.
