GOLD NOTES

NUGGETS FROM THE WORLD OF RESIDENTIAL DESIGN
Small Kitchen Appliances Help Support Healthy Cooking Needs During Pandemic And Beyond

I need a new refrigerator. The freezer side of my 15-year-old GE Profile side by side doesn’t work well any more. Fortunately for me, I don’t eat much frozen food, so the replacement can wait. Given how scarce major appliances are these days, that’s a blessing!

In the meantime, I heavily use my small, countertop appliances to support my healthy eating habits. Based on skyrocketing sales of these babies, millions of other Americans are too. Are you? Here are three pros to weigh in on the benefits they can bring to your nutrition and how to design them into your space in my latest article.

I can’t wait to talk to them during my WELLNESS WEDNESDAYS Clubhouse conversation this afternoon! Hope you’ll join us for that event.

BOOK REVIEWS!

Thank you to everyone who has taken time to write an Amazon review in the past few weeks. I’m so excited to be closing in on 50. Only six more to reach that goal! As I mentioned in my previous post, if the book is accepted into the trade show bookstore I’m submitting it to, I’ll do a wellness design gift drawing for my Book Launch Circle members, so be sure you’re on that list! Past giveaways have included an anti-fatigue mat from GelPro and a handheld massaging showerhead from Kohler. I haven’t chosen the next one, but it’ll definitely be something worthwhile!
