Summer is a time to grow, blossom and tap into that energy and momentum to drive us through long summer days. This has been a huge time of growth for Catalyst CC and as the team grows, we are trying to remain cognizant of the type of environment and culture in which we want to work! For me, that means an abundant, healthy, productive environment in which we are all nourishing our minds and our bodies.
For a small business, when you are firing on all engines, it's very hard to look after 'numero uno' - meetings simply run into one another, lunch becomes a bagel, and your afternoon energy becomes coffee #3. Nuh - uh. Could you imagine coming into work, knowing that someone had already lovingly prepared you a healthy lunch and snack, based on your needs? Wouldn't you rather function in that type of environment?
Yes! So, then we met Jessika from Harvest and Thyme who has agreed to feed us! We're going to be trying out a nutrition program for our staff which will provide 3 weekly lunches accompanied by a healthy snack or shake to fuel the afternoon.
I think the part I'm looking forward to the most is actually breaking each day to gather AS A TEAM and share in this delicious food - thereby fueling our souls and creativity as well as our bellies.
Here is a sample from DAY ONE: Lunch - Power bowls loaded with sweet beets, roasted sweet potato and cauliflower, red cabbage, chickpeas, radicchio, and the ancient grain Teff. Layed on a bed of fresh spring mix, arugula and frisee. Topped with a lemon tahini dressing. Snack - raw "cheezy" nut crackers (made with almonds, cashews, nutritional yeast & red pepper) , orangic kalamata olives & local cheese curds.
We'll be keeping a monthly diary of how we are feeling on our new program and highlighting our awesome meals on Twitter and Instagram #CatalystEatWell #HarvestandThyme.
So check in over the summer months! We hope it's something Catalyst CC can continue to offer as part of the benefits of working on our team moving forward.
Have a healthy day :-) #MakeItHapnCapn
