While some got in the best shape of their lives and were winning fitness competitions in 2020, others were just trying to do their best and keep their head above water.
In 2020, I was the latter.
I went from cooking clean, high protein recipes, to wandering down the frozen section in Target looking for the easiest pre-made meal. I wanted something that I could just heat in the oven and call it a day.
Like, let’s just survive and keep this as simple as possible.
I didn’t care if it was gluten free, organic, protein, or healthy in the slightest bit.
But it was food on the table. We were doing our best.
I think many people were just trying to do their best.
Some still are.
And doing their best is a Stouffers family sized pot pie or take-out.
I’m sharing not for sympathy, but to encourage, motivate, and inspire you that anyone can have those days, seasons, or years.
But there comes a point where you are ready to increase your dial, get out of your funk, and take the next step.
HEALTHY MEALS MADE SIMPLE
I was so excited to discover my next step. No more freezer meals. I needed something easy, a little healthier, and no stress.
Like, no stress at all. Do you hear me?
Do what’s best for you, your family, and your overall well-being.

I started with Every Plate and it saved my butt. Not a Jesus kind of saving, but still. The amount of pressure and stress this took off my mind allowed more space to heal and regain my focus.
But then I was ready for better.
Still not wanting to hunt for recipes and shop for ingredients, but ready for the next step up, whatever that looked like.
Like getting back to my high protein, cage free eggs, grass fed beef, fresh vegetables, organic, no preservatives, no gluten, and no sugar kind of ways, but someone else planning the meals for me.
So I quickly fell in love with Hungryroot, because they do all of that for me, and for less.
They have all of that and delicious! Never boring and so many more options to choose from. With Every Plate, although we still use it and love it, you get the same recipes and not as much variety.
I was completely wowed and amazed when my first box arrived with Hungryroot, and feels like Christmas every week! I couldn’t believe everything I got for the price.
Here’s my first box that totally rocked my world, check out the video on instagram below:

STICK WITH HEALTHY MEALS
So I decided to stick with Hungryroot.
I feel so much better because I am not snacking on the gluten that my body doesn’t tolerate well. I can choose how many and what kind of meals I want, it’s diet friendly, snacks, fresh vegetables, salads, smoothies, cage free egg bites, grass fed beef, and so much more. It really feels like Christmas every week.
One of my favorite snacks, is cookie dough. It’s cookie dough made out of chickpeas… and it’s crazy delicious without any hint of guilt. I eat it raw and if I’m patient enough to wait for the oven to pre-heat… I”ll make a batch of gooey cookies with it.
Another benefit? Is that the recipes take a fraction of the time to make vs Every Plate. I don’t even chop. It comes ready to go. Here’s a super short video below of how I made Organic Thai Peanut Chicken Stir-fry with a fraction of the time. You can serve over rice or rice noodles if you like.
Like, thank you Jesus, this is what I needed!

The breakfast smoothies help for those mornings I am running late, or for a quick snack for energy between my appointments.
FEEL BETTER WITH BETTER NUTRITION
I’m sticking with Hungryroot. They go above and beyond.
I’m impressed with the variety of recipes and how delicious they are.
I love that everything is guilt free.
SAVE TIME AND MONEY ON MEALS AND SNACKS
And surprinsgly, I actually spend LESS money on groceries with Hungryroot. If I would go to the grocery store, I would easily buy more than what I need or should.
I mean, I still go to the store for fresh eggs and milk, but I actually save a lot of time and money going this route.
No mental stress at all trying to figure out what to cook for my family.
Someone once said, “Nobody told me growing up meant that you worry about what to cook for dinner every night until you die.”
Well, in that case, I found the fountain of youth because I never need to think or worry about that again!
