Making Time for Good Food
Back when I changed the way I ate from standard American diet to a very healthy style that took a lot of study, acquisition, preparation, and cleanup, I could spend hours on a snack, much less a meal. I needed to go to nutrition school just to be sure I got enough nutrients in my day. Years later, I no longer have the learning time, and I choose not to spend all the time shopping, preparing, and cleaning up after. My husband did all that for a few years. You probably know what I’m talking about.
When I started eating healthy, I hunted pictures of ingredients and challenged the clerks at Whole Foods to help me hunt them down. I’d order things in. I know many of you know what I’m talking about.
It’s a lot of work.
We’ve tried alternatives. The companies that send the fresh or frozen ingredients that are measured out with recipes. Have you tried those? Most of those are delicious, but many have a lot of salt and oil. They take a lot of time to prepare, and even more time to clean up after.
So, I’m to the point where I work a lot. When I’m not working in this business, I want to play. I don’t want to be stuck with chores. I don’t enjoy washing dishes. I enjoy cooking, but I don’t want to prepare fancy, healthy meals for two people every day, three times a day. I want to eat healthy, fancy meals every day.
I’m happy to say there is a solution. I still make healthy breakfasts. Well, truth, Gary makes healthy breakfasts. I order food prepared and delivered.
Because of this business, I’m approached almost daily to promote food plans. There are many of them. If you have a dietitian evaluate them, most of them are exceptional. Aside from a few mishaps, or a bad week here and there, their services are good.
They are a lot of work.
There is a company, CookUnity. I found them in a Facebook advertisement. They didn’t solicit me.
They create full meals and deliver them once a week. There is so much variety that it will accommodate almost any dietary theory. I’m a very picky eater and select eight meals a week for my husband and me. We enjoy them all.
There’s enough portion size to split a meal in two. We can eat for less than $120 a week. Local chefs create the food weekly, delivered warm, not frozen. We eat it throughout the week. The meals are hot and cold, depending on your choice. We warm our hot meals in the oven. You can choose to do that or use a microwave.
I’m sharing a referral link here. If you sign up for meals, they have an introductory discount of $50, and I’ll get a credit too. I don’t share things like this often, but I think this adds value to our lives. Check them out. I’m thrilled to refer CookUnity. Their values and mission are honorable, the food is healthy, and there is never any waste in my home. CLICK HERE and learn more.
Initially, I looked into this for my mom, who has macular degeneration and is having more and more trouble preparing food for herself. Prepared meals allow her to extend her time at home and age in place.
