It’s that time again! For our third installment of the digital care package, we added a new section – HighPoint at Home. We hope you enjoy it!
- We’re spending more time in our homes than ever before, which makes those junk drawers and disorganized cabinets feel like a much bigger deal. This list of organizing tips can help you get your space under control.
- Need more masks for your bi-weekly grocery store runs? These step-by-step instructions for DIY Face Masks are organized by your level of craftiness.
See the World
We may be stuck at home, but that doesn’t mean we can’t explore new and interesting things around the world! Here is a new, curated batch of fun sites to check out:
- Live vicariously through real, high-impact adventures. The Wild Ideas Worth Living podcast highlights fun and wild stories of explorers and scientists who embark on travel adventures around the world. (135 episodes)
- Gourmet Makes from Bon Appetit follows the trials and tribulations of a pastry chef trying to create gourmet versions of our favorite junk food. A little bit of food science, a whole lot of fun.
- Date night under quarantine is a challenge, but these couples are making it work! We got some good ideas from reading their stories.
- Looking for a more “submersive” experience? These live webcams of the inhabitants of the Georgia Aquarium will keep you – and your cat – mesmerized. So much better than that old screensaver!
- Is finding the invisible cow a fun way to spend five minutes? Not really. Will you feel calmer, and more centered after trying it out? Absolutely not. If you do find the cow, will you feel accomplished? It’s possible. Will you find yourself asking, “Why is this a thing and why did my Financial Advisor decide to send it to me?” Most definitely.

Chelsea’s Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl
Chelsea’s been on a keto journey for the past six months, and this has become one of her favorite meals. Even if you’re not following a keto diet, this is an easy, tasty recipe to make at home!
- 1 lb (16 ounces) ground pork or beef
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 14 ounces shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix
- 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons sriracha
- 1 whole egg
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons sliced green onions
In a large skillet, brown the pork or beef until no longer pink. Drain the meat if it’s really wet. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the cabbage/coleslaw, soy sauce, ginger, and sauté until desired tenderness. You can add a little water if you need more liquid to sauté the coleslaw down.
Make a well in the center of the skillet and add the egg. Scramble until done over low heat.
Stir in sriracha. Drizzle with sesame oil and sprinkle with green onions. Add additional soy sauce and sriracha if desired.
We want to hear from you! If you have things to share, we’d love to include them in our next installment**!
