Nourished by Nutrition got a makeover! By now you’ll probably noticed Nourished by Nutrition’s new branding and website. This makeover took the original update and made it even better. Everything about this update has you in mind. The layout is more friendly, making it easier for you to search for recipes and articles. Plus, there’s new features and a beautiful design.
The original Nourished by Nutrition update was in fall 2018. This transformed the website from a food blog to a full functioning wellness website. With that update I switched up things on the backend, moving from WordPress to Squarespace. After a few months, I noticed a drastic shift in reach and performance. I had beautiful new branding and website but I wasn’t happy with the backend performance and some of the functionality. There were limitations that made it difficult to navigate. A few months later I took the plunge to go switch up the back to WordPress. I couldn’t be happier with the results!
THE DREAM TEAM behind this Update
The dream team behind this Nourished by Nutrition makeover is Kari Olson and Alchemy + Aim. Kari is an incredibly talented website designer. She designs for Squarespace and is the one who brought my vision and updated branding to life in fall 2018. Thankfully she agreed to work with me this spring on redesigning the website for WordPress. For the actual website development, I worked together with Alchemy + Aim. They’ve been on my radar for years as one of the top website developers. I even inquired about development three years ago, when I first started Nourished by Nutrition. Working with A+A to develop my dream site on a platform where anything is possible was the best investment I’ve made for my business this far.
I’m so excited to highlight the new features and let you explore the updated website. The new layout and functionality fully embodies all that Nourished by Nutrition has to offer. Continue reading to learn more about the new highlights, including the updated recipe, wellness, and nutrition indexes, new post features and 1:1 coaching clients.
NBN 2019 MakEover highlights
The new indexes might be my favorite feature of the Nourished by Nutrition makeover. There is now three indexes that allow you to locate recipes, wellness articles and nutrition articles separately.
Recipe Index Function:
The new Recipe Index on the blog allows you to quickly and purposefully search my entire recipe archive with just a few clicks! All of my recipes are now categorized by meal type and the option of search for vegan recipes. If you are searching for an ingredient or a specific recipe you can always use the search bar in the upper right hand corner to search for recipes.
Wellness and Nutrition Indexes:
The wellness index and nutrition index are structured the same as the recipe index. This allows you to quickly and purposefully search thought the various wellness and nutrition articles. You’ll notice there are categories in each index to help you narrow down your search. You can search for a specific top by using the search bar in the upper right hand corner.
New Post Features
The post layout got a makeover too. Every post now has the same format. This makes the posts easy to read and ensure there is valuable content in each and every post. The sections to pay attention to are the nutrition facts section, the recommended posts, and the recipe card.
Nourished by Nutrition facts section:
The Nourished by Nutrition Facts section highlights ingredients or unique nutrition components.. This sections is there to emphasize the nutrients and nourishing ingredients used in each recipe. All the recipes on Nourished by Nutrition are centered around high-quality, whole food ingredients. When we know the benefits of the foods we eat, it encourages us to eat more of them. Hopefully, this section will help you learn more about the foods you’re eating and encourage you to add more nutrient-dense foods into your diet.
Similar recipes section:
Each posts also has a section for similar recipes I think you’ll enjoy! These are recipes from Nourished by Nutrition but also various places around the web. My hope is to make it easy to find recipes using similar ingredients as well as introduce you to other amazing recipe creators.
Recipe card feature:
The recipes are now on a recipe card. This allows you to quickly multiply the recipe. For instance, if you’d like to double or triple a recipe to make for your family or a holiday party, this recipe card does the math for you! You can also print the recipe with ease by clicking the “print” button located above the recipe card.
