My Experience With the GoodFood Meal Kit Delivery Service

A few months ago I wrote about Canadian meal kit delivery services and their time saving benefits. At the time, the concept piqued my curiosity because I was strapped for time and running out of creative meal ideas.

Fast forward a few months and I’ve finally taken the plunge. I’m really excited to share this post with you because its been a game changer for me and it can be for you too. If you’re on the fence about the value or the feasibility of meal kit delivery services, you’ll want to read this!

Canadian Meal Kit Delivery Options for Quick and Easy Meal Prep

Meal Prep

Between working 40+ hours a week and shuttling kids to their various activities, home life is becoming increasingly more busy. After a long day at the office coming home to cook a family meal can be daunting. Regardless of your skills in the kitchen, you might feel drained and not overly excited about not only whipping up something that your kids will eat but also something that’s healthy for all of you.

A few months ago this was my story. I was exhausted after long days and didn’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen when I finally got home. Continue reading

Unique Gift Ideas To Keep Mom Smiling on Mother’s Day

Mothers Day Teddy Bears

That time of year is fast approaching.  That’s right, Mother’s Day! There are 5 more days to go and if you’re anything like me, you’re scrambling to figure out the perfect gift for your mom OR preparing to drop some major hints to your significant other.  Instead of the staple lunch or dinner date along with flowers or a movie and some new jewelry or a box of chocolates, what about considering a completely different type of gift.  Though not tangible, experiential gifts can be memorable and just as enjoyable as any other gift.  Don’t get me wrong, a box of chocolates is welcome (I’m holding out for a box of GODIVA chocolates this year!) but perhaps a different approach might be of interest, especially now that the weather’s warming up.  Below are 5 experiential gift suggestions that moms will enjoy (start dropping hints and hopefully hubby and the kids will surprise you!).

Mommy and Me Pizza Recipe

DinnerI’ve been blessed with a daughter who is definitely not a fussy eater.  Mind you, she does have her favourite meals but she’s willing to try new things.  This is especially true when she’s involved in the preparation of meals.  I enjoy spending time in the kitchen with her, seeing me prepare meals encourages her and she actively asks to help.  To ensure that she can participate in meal prep, we make simple meals together once a week.  One of our favourites is “homemade” pizza (“homemade” because I buy the dough vs. make my own).  I’m going to tell myself that its healthier than ordering out!  The main benefit I find with this activity is it’s a great bonding exercise.  I can explain each step to her along the way and she feels confident knowing that she had a hand in making a meal that day.

Lentil and Potato Soup Recipe

Like most moms of a toddler eating solids, I have a hard time coming up with fun new ideas of things to feed my daughter. I not only want to give her healthy and nutritious options that are also tasty. When she started eating solid food, I was that the sooner you introduce your little one to new textures and flavours, the more likely they’ll be willing to try new things later on.  So far this holds true for her.  With that in mind, I tried something new for dinner recently: lentil and sweet potato soup.
