I’m really excited to let you all know that I have recently become an independent representative with Wildtree! Wildtree is a RI-based direct sales company (yes I am from RI!) that specializes in USDA ORGANIC gourmet culinary spice blends, infused Grapeseed oils, dressings, & sauces. But more than that, Wildtree is about bringing cooking back into the home. Our Simple Healthy Workshops take place in the comfort of your home surrounded by friends & family. You learn how to efficiently meal plan & prep 10 meals in 90 minutes all while socializing & having fun with your friends.
What does it mean to Wildtree?
It means thinking about the food you eat, how it’s produced and where it comes from. It means you make a conscious decision to choose food with without additives, preservatives, chemicals, and GMO’s. When you Wildtree, you prepare delicious , healthy meals in minutes, saving you time and money.
Does that not sound exactly like what we are trying to do here at FMFP? The above statement is directly from Wildtree but is sounds exactly like our mission statement. My goal is to help as many people as I can realize how important whole foods are to one’s health.
Now I have to be honest with you guys. When I first heard of Wildtree I blew it off. My CrossFit box
was holding a workshop a few years ago; I read the email & immediately deleted it. I remember thinking I didn’t need Wildtree because cooking in bulk is what I do….it’s kinda my thing. I have a blog for Pete’s sake where Dani & I teach people how to meal plan, grocery shop efficiently, cook in bulk, & make things from scratch! We have an entire section devoted to meals and foods that are freezer friendly. I grew up watching my mom cook 40 quarts of gravy (that’s an Italian word for marinara sauce with lots of meat) and freeze it in Newport Creamery gallon ice cream containers that I used to bring home when I worked there in high school. When we needed something for dinner we were told to go the freezer to get it.
But then one day I was answering a question online. Someone asked for recipe recommendations that were freezer friendly. I linked over to our freezer friendly section of the blog and went on with my day. A little while later I received a private message from someone in the group who thought that I would be interested in Wildtree. I read everything I could find on their website, asked lots of questions. My upline leader Darci answered every question I had…and 90 minutes later we were done talking. I was impressed & I knew it was for me; I just couldn’t find one thing about this company or their products that I didn’t like! They even have paleo-friendly menus & products! I realized Wildtree would allow me to broaden my scope & help more people. Instead of just writing posts and hoping that people read them & use the information to make better decisions; I meet people in person and teach them how to feed themselves and their families better. I teach them how to make better nutritional decisions & how to use their time wisely. I take my 10+ years of nutrition teaching & cooking experience, and my 20+ years of fitness experience to make the night informative & fun. When you work with me you not only get a Wildtree representative, but a wellness coach.
Here are 4 reasons why I picked Wildtree to represent when I’ve declined many other companies & products in the past?
1. Wildtree is certified ORGANIC & GMO free.
2. Their ingredients are CLEAN-they contain no preservatives, fillers or additives.
3. Wildtree promotes COOKING nutritious whole foods for your family. No pre-packaged meals or supplement filled with weird sounding chemical ingredients here.
4. Wildtree makes cooking real food EASY; it SAVES TIME, & is more NUTRITIOUS.
I’ve been asked to cook for people before. While I can’t come to your house and cook FOR you, I can do better than that. I can come to your house and TEACH you how to cook simple healthy meals for yourself. Wildtree is kinda like CrossFit. I mean think about it…CrossFit did not invent circuit training or high intensity interval training just like Wildtree did not invent freezing meals. The success of both companies comes from the way it’s packaged & marketed. I love CrossFit because it makes exercise fun & I have some great friends that I’ve met over the past 4 years. I love Wildtree because it’s a great product and it makes meal planning FUN and EASY! What is not to love about getting together with your friends (because let’s face it, that doesn’t happen often enough) drinking some adult beverages (if you do that sorta thing) and bang out 10 freezer meals in 90 minutes? I love to cook. It’s what I enjoy doing when I have free time. I love the way I feel when I am all done and I have a finished product to show for my work. I feel productive, accomplished, organized, & proud. Before Wildtree I would spend all weekend in the kitchen browsing through recipes, making a grocery list, going shopping, putting the groceries away, cooking, & finally cleaning up. When I bought my first Wildtree bundle (collection of products that goes with a specific menu) it took me less than ONE HOUR to prep 6 meals!
Now I can spend my time in the kitchen doing fun DIY products like making homemade deodorant! See I really do love to be in the kitchen, it’s one of my only creative outlets (this blog is the other!) But now I have the time to work on some of the DIY products I’ve seen on Pinterest. If you want to check out any of Wildtree’s products, you can go to my website and look around. A cool feature that we have on our site is a recipe section. You plug-in any Wildtree product into the search bar and get tons of recipes! I tried it with Rancher Steak Rub (one of our more popular products) and got 89 different recipes!
I hope you’ll check out my site and give Wildtree a try. If you’re interested in getting together with friends and want me to come and organize a Tasting or a Simple Healthy Workshop just let me know. Here are some pictures from a Tasting I did this weekend.
