Hi, Sweet Friends!
Welcome back to Nourish Together, a compilation of wellness products, practices, tips, and inspiration. Plus, any updates that we feel are awesome and worth sharing.
This week, I invited Katie to take over the newsletter! Katie is our Director of Operations and oversees so many areas of our business: production, inventory, buying, and so much more!
I know you’ll enjoy getting to know her. She’s a long-time friend, my right-hand woman, and I’m blessed to have her on the team.
Katie’s Favorite Recipe
I’m really into this Eggroll in a Bowl recipe right now! It makes for a super fast lunch to throw together while WFH. It’s warm, filling, and full of fiber and protein!
1 lb (16 ounces) ground turkey or beef
1 tsp minced garlic
14 oz shredded (bagged) coleslaw mix
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce (or liquid aminos)
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp sriracha
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp sliced green onions
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef or turkey until no longer pink. Drain the meat, if it's really wet. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add the cabbage coleslaw, soy sauce, ginger, and saute until desired tenderness. You can add a little water if you need more liquid to saute the coleslaw down. Make a well in the center of the skillet and add the egg. Scramble until done over low heat. Stir in sriracha. Drizzle with sesame oil and sprinkle with green onions. Add additional soy sauce and sriracha, if desired. Yum!
I often ask myself, "How is my resistance getting me closer to what I want or need?" This is more of a "keep going" question I ask myself when the to-do list feels overwhelming. It's a simple reminder that my resistance to tackle something is just keeping me further from that desired end-goal. So it's a helpful phrase that keeps me going!
Katie’s Product Recommendations
My favorite non-beauty product that we use all the time is Elderberry Syrup. I truly believe in its healing powers and respiratory support during cold and flu season. We’re a family of four, and each week, someone is reaching for it from the fridge! Locally, we enjoy Cassie's Natural Living. We also regularly splurge on syrup from Tasha Rose Remedies out of California. Once you find a tasty recipe your little ones are willing to take, it's worth always having a bottle on hand.
Katie’s Insider Secret
An unconventional use of a Nourish product
Glow Face Serum is one of my most favorite products and is extremely versatile. In the winter, I pump a few drops in my body lotion, and even my self tanning lotion in the summer. The primary ingredient is organic, cold-pressed Moroccan Argan Oil which rejuvenates the skin and is so hydrating for the whole body.
A Note from Jamie
It's been a real joy for me to treat you to complimentary shipping these past four years. I know that I don't like paying for shipping when I'm shopping online, and I'm guessing that you don't either.
My heart wants to keep offering free shipping to you, but my head tells me that change is needed.
Over the past two years, we've fully absorbed the ever-increasing prices for raw materials, product packaging, and postage that the pandemic has brought. We've resisted raising our website prices because we know that times have been tough for everyone.
We've come to the point, though, that with some orders, we're actually losing money when we factor in all the associated costs of getting products to you. Shipping is the largest of those expenses.
So, beginning on April 1, we will be instituting a $39 order minimum to qualify for free shipping. For orders under $39, the shipping fee will be $3.99.
It costs us an average of $8 to ship an order to you. So, while we are asking you to pay $3.99, please know that we are still trying to treat you as best as we can. Because YOU MATTER to us, and we are incredibly grateful for your continued support.
Live Well. Be Kind.
