Happy Tuesday!! A lot of you know that I've been doing a workout program called BBG for the past twelve weeks (and I actually just started it again!! Round two!!) and I'm amazed at how life changing it has been for me. Not just physically but mentally as well! It has been so neat to see what my body can do and how far I can push myself. Along with working out Drew and I have made a goal to only eat out on the weekends (or just twice a week). We've been really trying to cook and eat at home for health and budget reasons. Plus let's be honest, it's usually a disaster to try and go out to eat with my babies (and sometimes even just a quick trip to the grocery store to find ingredients for meals is an adventure!!!).
I last posted about Blue Apron in this post, but last week we got a delivery and we were pretty excited about it! I love Blue Apron's food service because it makes cooking dinner simple and fun with unique meals I could never come up with on my own! The recipes along with farm-fresh ingredients are delivered in a refrigerated box straight to your doorstep in the right proportions (whether you are doing a 2-person plan or the family plan). Each menu is between 500-800 calories per person and can be prepared in less than 40 minutes (click here to see all of their delicious dishes that are available!!).
On the menu for this meal was General Tso's Chicken with sweet peppers and jasmine rice. It had all the right flavors of sweet, spicy and nutty and Drew and I loved it (I chose to have the sauce on the side to go along with the meal plan I'm doing).
If you've been wanting to give Blue Apron a try now is your chance!!!! They are offering three free meals to the first 100 readers who sign up. Click here to redeem the offer! Happy cooking!
