My Newest Mom Life Hack: Daily Harvest

I recently gave Daily Harvest a try and I was NOT disappointed. As a busy women and mom, I love anything that makes my life easier, and these my friend should be a staple for anyone looking for just that, especially when it comes to meal time.

They make it almost too easy, if you can say that.  You log into your account, select how many you would like per week or month then make your actual selections (cauliflower rice and pesto is my current favorite).

They arrive via FedEx on the date selected, packaged with dry ice (my 8th grade self would LOVE this as I did my science fair project on dry Ice).  You place them in the freezer until you’re ready to eat then it’s simply microwave for 4 minutes or use the stove top, eat and ENJOY.

I won’t lie.  My first experience I was expecting it to be what you would expect from your “typical” freezer meal and THEY ARE SO MUCH BETTER!  If you didn’t know any better, you would think it was home made right there in your kitchen.

You can get smoothies, harvest bowls, soups, lattes and more!

I have been choosing harvest bowls as I’m not a huge soup person and have a set smoothie recipe that works for me at the moment.  The best part is, that if you don’t eat them in a certain time frame, they are still good as they stay in the freezer.  What?!?!?  Mind blown.

I don’t know how they do it but the flavors go beyond what you would expect from frozen goods and any meal delivery service you can find (trust me, I’ve tried quite a few!)

Don’t take my word for it though, give it a try for yourself.  (But use my code so you get 3 FREE!)

Thursday Taste: Easy Egg Cups

This is real life.

I’m not a chef. I’m not trained. I’ve actually always had this thought that cooking was meant to be hard, take a long time to make anything worthwhile and always steered towards the “easy” way.

Truth is. I am simply a mom, trying to make a healthy lifestyle change for myself and my family.

Truth is. Most of the meals I make are NOT “Instagram worthy”. But you know what. That is real life. That is mom life.

Truth is. Most of the time I suck the first time I make something. But I keep at it. I keep trying.

And today I learned that I will not use baking cups when making egg cups again . . . 

Ingredients:

  • Nonstick spray or reusable silicone baking cups
  • 1/2 cup Almond Milk
  • 2 cups Egg Whites
  • 1 cup chopped peppers and onions
  • Dash of himalayan salt and ground pepper, if desired

 

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350° F.

2. Line a twelve-cup muffin tin with fun silicone baking cups or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

3. Combine almond milk and egg whites in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, if desired; whisk to blend. Set aside.

4. Evenly divide chopped peppers and onion between prepared muffin cups.

5. Evenly pour egg white mixture over onions and peppers.

6. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of egg cups comes out clean, and eggs are set.

7. Enjoy!
