Twenty-five eight is a prepared meal delivery company that serves ready-to-heat, curated food designed for motherhood. We take care of mamas so they can take care of everyone else!
Sourcing is my absolute obsession. It is our priority to limit 3 P’s: packages,
places, and processes. Limiting packages means that we always use whole food
ingredients combined in our kitchen to make your nourishment, thus limiting the
packages used from the time the food was cultivated to its arrival at your doorstep.
Limiting processes is similar to packages in that we limit or completely eliminate the
processing of any food ingredient outside of our kitchen. Finally, limiting places means that we strive to have all of our ingredients come from the farm directly to our kitchen.
Most days you’ll find me on the phone with our farmers. Particularly animal
farmers, why? Not because animals matter more than plants, but because the treatment and care of the animals that we purvey is my passion. I believe that those without a voice deserve an advocate, and that is exactly what I do. I know exactly where our animals were raised, how they were treated, what they were fed, and where/how they were processed into life-giving nourishment for our mamas. Our animals do not get passed through a third party facility, we get all of our animal protein directly from the ranch they were raised! We take farm to table to a whole new level.
With regard to produce, organic (or beyond-organic) and seasonal is best both
for our body and for the planet. When food is eaten seasonally it is typically grown in the same soil we are grounded in, drinking the same water, and breathing the same air.
Eating foods this way allows our bodies to attune to the harmony of the season. Also, there is much less impact on the environment when you eat foods grown close by!
My values in wellness have changed drastically since Aydan joined us earth side.
Before, my idea of wellness revolved around stillness. Cultivating my Yin (feminine,
quiet, soft, healing) was always a strong focus because I tend to get caught up in the Yang (masculine, productive, exponential, go-go-go) energy. My life looks a little
different now, and my opportunities for stillness and quiet have almost completely
Today, my ultimate self-care and wellness values lie in giving myself some slack.
Allowing my body to tell me what I need and when. For example, today I woke up
feeling tired because Aydan was up a few times nursing last night. So today for my self-care I will be napping with him. Simple as that.
The absolute game-changer, the one thing that I truly believe can make a
different between a good life and a great life, is the quality of nourishment we consume.
I always allow my intuition to guide my eating, no portion distortion here. If I am hungry, I eat slowly until I am full. If I am craving a certain food, I include that food in my diet until the need is fulfilled.
My ideal fitness routines have changed drastically as well, but in a really beautiful
way. Where I may have over-exerted myself in the past with an extensive exercise
routine, now a simple walk with Aydan will feed my need for circulation and motion.
