Happy Friday! I thought I would pop in today for a quick discussion about my meal planning efforts as of late. I won’t just flat out bore you, though, because I’m also pairing it with a fun giveaway. Sounds fair, right?
Back to the food. I’ve been struggling lately with eating well while making sure we aren’t wasting food and money every week. The issue with pregnancy cravings is that they make no freaking sense and can leave me skipping dinner in favor for a cream horn. It happens. Given the fact that I can’t be trusted to make good decisions on the fly, I need to plan ahead. I’ve been trying to work on my meal planning skills. It’s been helping but I still have trouble planning what I will eat along with what the boys will eat. They like meat. I do not. While they are both extremely patient with me and will eat whatever I serve them, I try to surprise them with “fun” (I mean, I guess it’s fun for them?) things like spaghetti and meatballs even though I won’t touch it with a ten foot pole. It’s on those nights that I end up eating whatever I can scrounge up.
I was randomly searching for new recipes when I received an email from Fresh ‘N Lean asking if I wanted to try out their vegan meal delivery service in exchange for a review. LIGHTBULB. Yes, yes I do. How did they know I needed help?
My first course of action was obviously to look and see what kind of food they would send. Yep, I wanted it. All of it.
Then I checked out their product video. I am such a Heather, y’all.
I emailed back that I was totally interested and I received my food shortly thereafter. I can honestly say that enjoyed the process, from the first step to trying each meal. Speaking of the meals, I got to eat some great food this week.
Butternut Cauliflower Rice
Maple Cinnamon Crunch Muffins
Greek Beans and Collard Greens
Coconut Mango Chia Pudding
Cream of Cauliflower Pasta
I was shocked by how much I enjoyed everything, but I was even more surprised to see just how great everything tasted with such limited, healthy ingredient lists. Seriously, every single thing I ate was made from whole, hearty things that I could actually pronounce. Huge win for me right now considering I’m really doing my best to clean up my act for this baby. I do not want to give birth to a little donut, you know?
