Culinary Director Rachael Perron's picks for April include a bagel from a local partner that has the Twin Cities fired up! It's perfect for a holiday brunch. Among her other top selections are ready-to-cook dinner solutions from the Meat Department, flavor-packed krauts and fizzy beverages to cleanse the palate:
Get Fired Up
Delivered fresh daily, wood-fired bagels from Meyvn's popular Uptown restaurant are the bagels the Twin Cities are raving about. These Montreal-style bagels from Meyvn’s Executive Chef Adam Eaton have a sweetened dough and a bigger hole. Wood-firing after boiling gives them a beautifully bubbly, crispy exterior and superior chew on the inside. We love them best when they’re lightly toasted or gently rewarmed. Find a variety of flavors every day on the Artisan Bread Table or Donut Case in the Bakery Department.
Small But Mighty

These delicious, delightful creations are peanut and tree nut free and are loaded with simple, natural, wholesome ingredients with no artificial preservatives. Look for resealable pouches of Shorts in the Cookie Aisle in the Grocery Department.
Get Your Fix

Raw, unpasteurized and lacto-fermented sauerkraut from Cleveland Kraut is rustic-cut to lock in fresh flavor and crunch.

Even though it's the smallest element, hydrogen has tremendous power. When added to carbonated water, it produces a super-smooth sparkling water sensation that some may find more soothing on the belly and esophagus. Made with only carbonated water, certified organic flavors, magnesium and hydrogen, all HyVIDA drinks are caffeine free and contain no calories, sugar or sweeteners of any kind. Find HyVIDA in the Beverage Aisle in the Grocery Department.
