If you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time, you know two things about me:
- I’m passionate about food – both it’s origin and it’s preparation
- Often, I’m so busy with other projects, I hate to take time out to cook – –
Now, I have an option to eat well and still pursue my 1,001 other passions –
Some disclosures before we go further:
- I host and help Patty with her website
- She tested out some of her recipes and delivery methods on me
- I’m not paid to tell you about her, but I’m sure she’ll appreciate me doing so, probably in the form of food – –
So why am I telling you about this, other than the opportunity to do a good turn for a friend and maybe score some awesome free food?
Because nutrition is as important to her as it is to me.
Because I happen to know how she sources her ingredients and it meets with my approval.
Because the frozen dinners you get at the store (whether it’s Wal-mart or Whole Foods or Natural Grocers) just do not meet my standards for: good fats, no additives, short ingredient list I can pronounce and understand.
For years I believed if I wanted to eat nutritiously in a hurry, I had one option – Make Ahead Dinners I Froze Myself.
I’m the Queen of Big Batch Cooking. Why make a small batch of soup when you can make supper for tonight and have enough to freeze for seven other suppers?
But these past few years have seen me in a change of priorities – yes, I want to eat good, but I’m no longer a fan of all day cooking – too many other wonderful things to do.
Patty sent me 2 soups and 1 entree to ‘test’ out the weekend I worked on adding all her offerings and a shopping cart to her website.
I ate heartily anytime I got hungry on these ‘samples’ from Friday evening through Monday mid-day. She markets her items in ‘serving’ mode, but I’m telling you, one serving of these nutrition packed dishes lasts 2 or 3 meals for me.
She also offers Gluten-Free alternatives for her menu items – while this isn’t a requirement for me, I understand it’s becoming a big requirement for many in their quest to feel better.
