Check Out This Delicious and Healthy Food Subscription!

Fun fact about me and my family: we’re vegetarians! I definitely don’t condemn anyone who eats meat, I just know it isn’t right for me. So how did I come to the decision? A few things. First, there’s the ethical, which I won’t get into because everyone has different opinions. Secondly, I read this really interesting book called Eat Right 4 Your Type.  It’s all about eating right for your BLOOD type!

According to my blood type, my body doesn’t even process meat very well and it’s recommended from the get-go that my blood type is vegetarian, or only eats fish. If you’re interested in eating for your blood type and feeling really healthy, I really recommend the Eat Right 4 Your Type book. I knew from past experience that the healthiest I’ve ever felt was on a vegetarian diet, but let’s face it, IT’S HARD!

At one point I was scrolling through social media and I stumbled upon Hungryroot. Here’s a few key points as to why they’re absolutely awesome:

  • Meals delivered to your home (Hey, I hate grocery shopping, okay?)
  • They come in subscribeable bundles, or a la carte
  • They’re healthy! Everything is less than 500 calories
  • They’re Gluten Free, Non-MGO, Vegan, AND preservative free!
  • Everything is ready in SEVEN MINUTES OR LESS
  • All of their packaging is either 100% recycleable or biodegradeable
  • Their meal serving sizes are HUGE and I either have leftovers or can share
  • Most important: They’re delicious!!!!

I’m sure you can see why I absolutely love them. I’m a working mom and the last thing I want to do when I get home is cook. Andrea’s cooking skills are limited to eggs and grilled cheese, but these meals are already prepped and everything. You can microwave them or use a skillet. I usually use the microwave because, c’mon, the last thing I want to do when I get home is use a skillet, stand at the stove, and clean dishes. I promise I’m not lazy! I’m just not the SuperMom everyone thinks we should be. 🙂

Right now, Purple Unicorn Designs is offering $20 off your first bundle! If you get the basic package, you get 3 meals and can mix/match between 5 breakfasts, sides, and deserts. Here are my current favorites, and the meals even my 4 year old loves:
