I don’t know about you, but one of the most stressful parts of my week is meal planning. I hate having to come up with meals ideas, make my shopping list and then find the time to grocery shop.
So you can imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to test out The Fresh 20 meal planning site. The Fresh 20 has taken all of the work out of meal planning by supplying you with recipes for five complete meals (main dish and side) along with a shopping list.
The best part about The Fresh 20 is that each week you only need to buy 20 ingredients (all fresh, non-processed, preservative free foods) in addition to using some of the 20 pantry staples you will probably already have on hand.
I have made several meals from the plan this week and have been really impressed with how delicious and easy the recipes have been. I will be honest, when I first saw some of the ingredients and recipes I was a little intimidated. As it turned out, I really had nothing to worry about. The prep has been very quick and the food has been fantastic. I have even altered a few of the recipes to save on time and fit my families tastes with no problems. Our favorite meal so far has been the salmon with parmesan cannellini beans. So yummy that even my 10-month-old was begging for more!
The Fresh 20 also has vegetarian and gluten free plans as well as a lunch plan. I would highly encourage anybody who is looking to make meal planning less stressful all while providing healthy meals for their family to give this a shot. It truly has made my life so much easier!
February is “Heart Healthy” Month so give your family a special Valentine and begin an amazing journey with The Fresh 20.
