NEW JOB! ALL OF THE DETAILS

In 2018, I had two goals: focus on my overall health/wellness, and support more women-owned businesses. I ended up taking both to heart and joined the team at Further Food at the end of the year. I'm so excited to continue both of those "goals" in 2019 in this new job!

Today I want to share all of the details on my brand new job with Further Food! 🙌🏻


WHAT IS FURTHER FOOD?
I'm so glad you asked! Further Food is an online community that focuses on holistic wellness and healing from the inside out. All 3 partners have experience with chronic illness so the focus from the beginning was to advance natural, holistic health knowledge through food.

As part of their mission, Further Food donates to chronic illness and healthy eating nonprofits and programs.

Now, Further Food sells collagen products, turmeric, matcha, and more! (Plus is still a great online resource with recipes and other articles.)


WHAT IS COLLAGEN?
Collagen is a natural protein produced by our bodies that decreases in production starting in our 20s. (Hi!) Bovine collagen is made from the hide of the cow (FF sources from South American pasture-raised cattle), and marine collagen is made from the skin of fish (FF uses wild-caught North Atlantic Cod). Our ancestors used to eat a ton of collagen in their diets because they used the entire animal, but as we've become more modern, we've stopped consuming it as much.

Some benefits of collagen include increased skin elasticity, stronger nails, hair, and joints, digestion aid, and more.  

WHY I LOVE THE COMPANY
As I mentioned, I love the fact that FF is 100% women-owned. They're growing so fast without sacrificing the things that make them great: high-quality products, community, and using food as healing.

I also love that they're committed to a specific mission and give back to similar non-profits.

I've been using the product for almost a year now, and my nails have never been stronger and my hair is so healthy! 

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
I'll be doing social media content creation and management, customer service, brand ambassador management, recruitment, and upkeep, and more! 

The great (and scary! but great) thing about a startup is that I'll be wearing so many hats and learning so many different things about how a business operates. It's certainly going to be a challenge and a change from my previous position, but I'm so excited!

OK, I'M SOLD. CAN I TRY SOME? 
Of course! You can shop here with the code TORI10 for 10% off your entire order! 

If you're new to collagen, I'd start out with the collagen peptides (teal jar - bovine source) as it is 100% tasteless and dissolves right into hot liquids. You can also bake with collage, mix it into a bowl of oatmeal or yogurt, bake with it, and more! I also love the Mindful Matcha - their newest product! I've never had matcha before this week but now I'm officially hooked.

OKAY, I think that's mostly it. If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback, please let me know!
