Get to Know Lionfish

You might recognize the striped and striking lionfish from saltwater aquariums, but these spiny fish are actually very harmful to reefs and the other animals in the ocean. Luckily, solving the lionfish problem has a delicious solution! Since the Monterey Bay Aquarium rated lionfish Green in early 2016, Whole Foods Market is now able to offer lionfish in our stores, creating a market for this tasty predator and hopefully making a dent in the growing population.

Get to Know Teff

Teff is one of the oldest cultivated grains in the world, originating in Ethiopia as plant domestication began thousands of years ago. It is a grass, not a variant of wheat, and is very similar to millet or quinoa, but this seed is even smaller. The small size makes it ideal to use in porridges and savory polenta-style meals. It’s also ground into flour and used traditionally for flatbreads like injera. Teff is high in protein, carbohydrates, and fiber, which has made it a staple for seminomadic farmers for centuries.
