[Disclosure: This week’s digital content is created in partnership with Simple Mills. As always, we only partner with the brands we truly love]
It’s our ninth week of creating a completely digital workouts and workshops schedule. In this ninth week, we’re bringing in the help of our friends at Simple Mills, a brand that loves and creates clean, nutritious food and is deeply invested in your happiness. They’re a match made in heaven for a week of digital fun.
You’ll see Simple Mills pop up organically in our schedule of digital events! Mother’s Day, they’ll help you connect with the moms, mother figures, kids, or kid figures in your life, even if you can’t be in the same place physically. There will be brunch! And they’ll also be a part of a workshop we’re hosting reminding you of ways to host celebrations right now! Food will be a major part of that event!
And we’re so excited to partner with so many people to bring this week to life: Eric Tenfelde from Bottomline Yoga, musician Pat McKillen, Chef Kendra Peterson of Drizzle Kitchen; Trista Greco; Maggie Umberger; Emily Hutchins; The Sill; Julian Collins Sr.; Liu Gross; DJ Blatner; Alia Dalal; Darcey and Matt Wion; and Barre3 West Loop.
Hot off the digital presses: Three workshops to bring something different to your days.
On Sunday, 5/10, aSweatLife is hosting a Mother’s Day Celebration. We are partnering up with our friends at Simple Mills to inspire you to bringing tasty brunch treats to the table. This day is all about finding a way to digitally say “WE LOVE YOU MOMS!” Invite your mom, your kid, anyone who feels like your mom or your kid, because you’re in for a treat. You’ll do a yoga practice with Eric Tenfelde that starts laying in bed and finishes standing on the floor. You’ll definitely be serenaded by guitarist Pat McKillen. You’ll make a new brunch dish with Kendra Peterson from Drizzle Kitchen that will be so delicious that you’ll be talking about it on your family zoom calls for months.
Start your journey to Plant Parenthood on the right foot with The Sill! On Tuesday, May 12, at 6:00 pm CDT, The Sill is bringing in a plant expert to share tips and tricks on plant care and plant styling. They’ll break down the science behind how to determine the light level of your environment, identify water stress signals, and teach you how to choose the perfect houseplant for your space and your schedule. Tune in to learn about common houseplants and ask all your burning plant questions!
On Thursday, 5/14, we are gathering a few of our friends to share easy, fun and delicious celebratory-treat recipes to help us do just that! Chef Alia Dalal and Dawn Jackson Blatner will be demoing a variety of goodies, all using Simple Mills products and other staples you likely have at home. Chef Alia will be making dips to pair with Simple Mills Almond flour Crackers and Mug Brownies. DJ Blatner will be making Supercharged Brownies and Vanilla Mint Nice Cream using Simple Mills Brownie Mix. We love Simple Mills because their products are made with only simple, whole food ingredients and contain nothing artificial, ever. The number one ingredient in their baking mixes are nutrient-dense almonds, and they have NINE different mixes including artisan bread, muffin mixes, brownies, pizza dough and more.
