  • Store bought food is affordable and can be healthy too with Nourish with Style reusable, refillable food pouch!!

    I have been running Nourish with Style for over 4 years, and now my sisters are starting to have babies and are able to use my products.  It's so wonderful seeing firsthand how pouches can make life easier for busy mom's and hungry kiddos!  

    My youngest sister remarked that buying pre-made food was so much easier than making it, and I agree but did have a few tips for her to help stretch her dollar and not spend a ton of time in the kitchen.  

    Store bought baby food is affordable and can be extra healthy too with Nourish with Style reusable, refillable food pouch!!

    My easiest baby food hack is a jar of apple sauce and a bag of spinach! Throw them in the blender and you have a whole bunch of healthy ready to go apple sauce with a kick! 

     

     

  • I'm Not a "Crunchy" Mom Anymore - How one mom gave herself grace and found peace

    Kylie at NorthwestArkansas.citymomsblog.com wrote an amazing article about how we try so hard an sometimes our paradigm shifts and we realize we had room to give ourselves grace after all.  There are all sorts of crunchy things I like.  For instance oils from PlantTherapy are my favorite first line of defense, and a good smoothie with spinach hidden never hurt anyone, but sometimes we just have to have taquitos for lunch with some no real fruit included fruit drink. 

    Love her words: "I’m not 100% organic. In fact, I’m not 100% anything anymore. It’s just not possible to raise two tiny humans and have a healthy marriage and a fulfilling social life and a rich spiritual existence and be physically fit and start a career and be perfect at it. “There is no way to be a perfect mother, but a million ways to be a good one.”

    Keep them healthy. Keep them safe. Keep them clean. Keep them loved.

    And most of all, let go of the guilt you have for not fitting into a preconceived idea of how you “should” be. Be the best mother you can be for your children. Full stop. "

  • Nourish with Style helps combat environmental damage with reusable food pouches

    The food industry is always coming up with new ideas and starting around 2012 baby food began to come in convenient pouches.  However, as with many conveniences, there is a huge environmental downside.  good.is reports that “The problem with the disposable pouches is that they’re made from multiple layers of materials and the reGetty Imagescyclable components can’t be separated out,” Brent Bell, vice president of recycling at Waste Management, told HuffPost.   So these pouches soon pile up in landfills, where they will take thousands of years to biodegrade. By 2018, Americans will throw out an estimated 80 billion of these packs a year. 


    romper.com reports that “There are some benefits to the baby food pouches. They reduce food waste and are made with fewer raw materials, which is a longer term benefit when it comes to sustainable eating.

    But overall, it's just like using a plastic grocery store bag every time you hand your child a snack. Which might just have to be done sometimes — parenting comes with lots of compromises and choices. But if you're worried about the trash crisis, going back to glass jars or actually reusing your pouches is the reusable food pouchesway to go.”

    Nourish with Style is so excited to report that we don’t have foil lined pouches which make them easy to recycle - and did we also mention they are reusable??! A single family can save up to $30 a week on baby food pouches as well as keeping over 20 pouches out of the landfill - just by buying a pack of 10 and filling them at home! Nourish with Style Reusable Food Pouches  - Good for your budget and good for the environment - buy some today and start saving the planet!

  • Reusable food pouches aren't just for kids....

    ..... they are for hardcore athletes too!! We found out thanks to our customer Ali that there is a whole market for them we never knew! Are you a athlete - let us help you!  

    Heres what Ali had to say. "You guys you guys you gu-hi-hiyyys! Because I can't have caffeine or citric acid, a lot of commercially prepared gels are out for me. Plus sometimes real whole food is just better. So while the gel flasks out there are a decent idea, they are heavy and bulky. On Etsy I found these cool flat REUSABLE WASHABLE pouchy things you can fill yourself with peanut butter/honey/pureed fruit/whatever... they are light and CHEEEEP! This marvelous gal has developed them after the baby food ones that you see at the store these days, but I think they are great for athletes too. Any ideas for how to break this KILLER product into the endurance market?"

  • #TBT Butternut Squash

    You know how the Halloween season spirals into crazy, awesome, busy family time and eating way too much? Well we've missed you and I found this picture of Maverick from like 2 years ago - miss this sweet squish!! One of his favorite things to eat was butternut squash.  

    It can be a pain the the tuchus to peel and dice a squash so I just started cutting in half, scrapping the seeds out and putting it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes and it comes out soft and ready to mash!

    You can serve it straight up or mix it with yogurt or rice cereal or so much more! Enjoy!!

  • Favorite Fall things - Orange Creamsicle!

    Fall has finally arrived in Texas!! And with it a new sense of needing delicious, warm comforting food that the whole family can enjoy.  This year I've been on a bit of a journey to let go of the desire for perfection and have started lightening up a bit on strict "must always be 100% healthy".  This orange creamsicle smoothie is just the ticket!

    Orange essential oil is my fall go to and this smoothie is delicious!! Enjoy this recipe from Sally's Baking Addition

    1. You can even add in kale, spinach or a protein powder for extra punch! Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

    Ingredients:

    • 1 frozen ripe banana, previously peeled & sliced
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup orange juice
    • 3/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
    • 1 orange, peeled and sliced
    • optional: 2 teaspoons orange zest

    Directions:

    1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender to break down the frozen banana and orange. I like this Ninja or this Vitamix.
    2. On high, blend the frozen banana chunks, vanilla, and orange juice together until thick, creamy, and smooth - about 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Add the yogurt, orange, and orange zest (if using). Blend until combined.

  • Entrepreneurs Reveal What Entrepreneurship Means to Them

    Recently we had a chance to talk about what this company and journey with y'all means to us over at Hearprenuer on CEO Blog Nation:

    A Journey

    To me being an entrepreneur meant dreaming of a product, creating it and selling it. I thought that the journey to accomplish those three simple steps would be easy, but I was wrong. This journey of entrepreneurship has stretched me, grown me and taught me more than I ever could have imagined and I’m sure that there are still a lifetime of lessons left to be learned as I continue down this path. Entrepreneur means to me a lifetime of learning and growing to create the best product and customer experience I can provide.

    "The openings on the bottom of these Nourish pouches is perfect: big enough to easily spoon in whatever mashed up food I feel like putting in! TIP: use a baby or toddler spoon for easier filling. It zips firmly and I gave it a good squeeze without busting the zipper. The colors are also cute!"

  • Nourish Reusable Food Pouches Review by Picky Peach

    Nourish Reusable Food Pouch Review by Picky Peach Blog

    The gorgeous Jennifer at The Picky Peach Blog from Georgia did an awesome review, discount AND new twist on apple sauce for us!!  She also brought up a great point about the age span of our pouches:

    "I love that her pouches come in geometric designs because they have a longer use, lets face it your 9 year old might not want to carry a cute bunny or panda bear in his lunch box. After all he has a reputation to protect, with these pouches you can choose from 4 different designs that are perfect for all ages."
