What’s up, everyone? Bernie Molina here, author of Herencia Cookbook, full of authentic SalviMex recipes with a modern twist. Today, I want to talk all about The Pinole Project ! The Pinole Project is a Mexican-American food company that sells a superfood pinole chia oatmeal. My friend Maya Jacquez is the owner and founder of the company I am very excited to tell you all about it. So, let’s get to it!
Why do I love oatmeal so much?
If you’ve been keeping up with me for a while, you know that I enjoy oatmeal for breakfast several days a week. As a mom and business owner, I need meals that will nourish me well so that I can keep up with everything I need to do. Additionally, my own grandmother often told her children and grandchildren that oatmeal is great for lactation, and milk production. Therefore, you will see me eat oatmeal almost daily. In fact, my mother made oats for me almost every day, in my first 40 days after giving birth.
The Pinole Project: Superfoods Galore
The Pinole Project contains chia, which offers protein, omegas, and fiber. Additionally, the Pinole Project also contains pinole! This is a superfood of the natives of Nothern Mexico, where my dad’s side of the family is also from. Pinole is rich in fiber and antioxidants. It also is a complex carbohydrate that is a great source of energy! In other words, this meal contains superfoods to keep our bodies well-nourished. Is it any wonder this is such a beloved food? As a result, I simply had to share it with you all here on the blog.
Latina Owned and Operated
Additionally, this is a woman-founded company. Maya Jaquez is the founder and owner of The Pinole Project. Since we are both Latina business owners, we have become friends. We have a lot in common! For example, her grandmother inspired her business. My grandmother is one of the main inspirations behind Herencia Cookbook. Finally, The Pinole Project honors Mexican-American heritage. At Herencia Cookbook, you know we are all about honoring heritage! In fact, I am so excited about this product launching that I collaborated with Maya from The Pinole Project to offer you 10% off their variety pack!
