Welcome to the Daily Distance, a new daily series from the creators of #WeGotGoals. In these short episodes, we’re bringing you one daily goal you can set for yourself during this chaotic time- one actionable thing you can do to move your body, connect with a friend, prioritize your mental health, get some work done, and practice a little bit of self-care.
Today’s special guest is Katlin Smith, CEO and Founder of Simple Mills. She comes on to share her secret weapon in supporting organic farmers, avoiding the grocery store, and avoiding a cooking rut: farm boxes. We chat about what surprising ingredient she’s mastered cooking with, how she stays creative in the kitchen, and why it’s so important for her to support the food service industry right now.
- Katlin’s previous episode of #WeGotGoals and her appearance on our #FearlessFriday series (plus, our first-ever interview with Katlin)
- The Chicagoland farm boxes Katlin personally recommends: Local Foods (they’re currently revamping their farm boxes, but never fear—you can still get all your locally sourced grocery must-haves via Mercato), Fresh Picks by Irv and Shelly, and Green City Market.
- Simple Mills on the internet: their website and their Instagram.
- In addition to their website, you can buy Simple Mills online via Amazon, Thrive Market, and Target.
