Bob Moore founded Bob’s Red Mill 40 years ago with the mission of bringing people back to basics with nutritious whole grains and minimally processed foods. Since then, the company has expanded greatly—due in large part to Bob’s vision and incredible work ethic—but it hasn’t strayed from that core mission. Bob continues to be an inspirational leader to the company’s employee-owners, customers and the community. In the relatively short time since he founded Bob’s Red Mill, Bob has built a legacy that includes the respected company, the Employee Stock Ownership Plan, and generous contributions to nutrition research at Oregon Health & Science University, Oregon State University, National University of Natural Medicine and George Fox University.
When Bob founded the company in 1979, with stone ground whole wheat flour and a handful of other goods, he couldn’t have imagined the expansive and diverse product selection the company offers today. Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods is a leader in nutritious, organic and gluten free foods, and its mission to promote “whole grains for every meal of the day” is backed by a diverse line featuring over 400 products, including whole grains, flours, cereals, baking mixes, protein powders, seeds and more. Bob’s focus on bringing whole grains to the table and beyond has fueled their recent expansion into the grab and go market. In addition to the gluten free and organic oatmeal cups, the company debuted muesli cups and five flavors of Bob’s Better Bars, a wholesome snack made from whole grain oats, peanut butter and organic honey.
It’s great to look at the ingredients when picking your snacks, but be sure to check out the certifications. Find out what’s NOT in your snack. Here’s a few examples that make Bob’s Red Mill Bars certified Fit Snacks!

In today’s 24/7 world, staying plugged in has practically become a way of life. From navigating over-scheduled calendars to managing multiple to-do lists, it seems that some days, finding time to so much as sit down and take a breath is impossible.
Enter mindful therapy.
Mindfulness has shown potential to reduce symptoms of stress and depression, and improve general health; and mindful therapy is an effective way to learn mindfulness-based tools you can incorporate into your everyday life.
Here, Zencare – a search site to help people find great therapists – introduces mindful therapy, what you can expect in a typical mindfulness-based therapy session, and shares tips on how to find a mindfulness therapist who’s right for you.
Mindfulness practices include a wide variety of different exercises and activities. Generally, they are intended to help you learn to observe yourself and the world around you in an open, nonjudgmental way.
Mindfulness often focuses on increasing calm awareness of your own thoughts, emotions, and experiences in the moment.
Again, approaches and exercises can vary, but may include these two standardized approaches:
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction: MBSR is a proven way to reduce stress and emotional suffering. The therapist guides clients as they explore the connection between mind and body through meditation, dialogue, and mindful yoga, and movement. Through mindfulness practice, clients are able to connect with their inner resources for coping, growing, and healing.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy: MBCT illuminates thought patterns that take hold during depressive episodes. The therapist supports the client by noticing how their thought patterns impact their emotional experience and then provides mindfulness techniques to help them maintain optimal mental health and wellness.
Mindful therapy is a different experience for every individual, because every individual has unique situations and symptoms – so you may not practice every exercise below, or you may find other exercises are more helpful for you.
That said, typical exercises may include:
Consider asking the following questions when searching for a therapist who specializes in mindfulness:
Asking this open-ended question can help you determine whether the basics of their approach appeal to you and might make you feel comfortable in sessions.
Note that typically, there is no set endpoint for mindful therapy. You and your therapist will agree on treatment goals early on in the therapeutic process; this discussion should also include ways to measure progress based on your individual goals.
You have a few options when paying for mindful psychotherapy, including:
Regardless of which kind of mindfulness practice you’re interested in pursuing, make sure you work with someone who is trained in using mindfulness techniques.
Practitioners of various mindfulness practices will often have certifications and licenses to practice specific treatments, such as meditation, yoga, or Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. If you’re dealing with a specific mental health concern, it may also be helpful to find someone with experience using mindfulness to treat your particular symptoms or condition.
Also, keep in mind that practitioners of mindfulness — including yoga instructors and meditation coaches — aren’t always psychotherapists. If you expect psychotherapy to be part of your treatment and are looking for a mindful talk therapist, make sure to look for a provider who is licensed to practice in the state where you live.
Live outside those areas? Look for the certifications from the above section to start your search!
Whether the plugged-in stressors of today have you feeling tapped out, you’re looking to boost your external awareness and self-compassion, or you’re just curious about mindfulness, consider seeing a mindfulness-based therapist!
