Their motto is Shop once, prep once, enjoy stress-free meals all week. Their meal planning system has completely changed my dinner time routine (for the better). They provide Paleo and Gluten Free meal plans, with a grocery list, prep instructions, and cooking instructions.
The idea is that you take a couple hours to prep each week and then when it’s time to cook dinner, you’ve already prepped the meal and you’re halfway done. Honestly I didn’t know what to do with myself for the first week. I had so much free time, and no rush!

I love the model of Imperfect Foods. They source the “ugly” produce that isn’t perfect enough to make it to the grocery store, and sell it at a discount to you and me. They’ve recently expanded to offer more than just produce, discounted. They’re on a mission to reduce food waste and I love being a part of it! They’re available in most major cities, and are growing rapidly.GET $10 OFF YOUR FIRST BOX WITH THIS LINK
In your quest for real food, you might struggle to find quality meat in the stores near you. If you live in the country (and have a big freezer), you might be able to buy a quarter cow straight from a farm (like we do). Crowd Cow is the next best thing. They partner with independent farms and provide the highest quality of meat and deliver it to your door. True farm to table food. Pastured chicken, craft beef, wild caught seafood, and more. Plus, you get to learn a little bit about the farm your meat came from.SHOP BETTER MEAT WITH CROWD COW

We are stressed people. No doubt about it. Rasa’s adaptogenic coffee alternatives energize while helping your body cope with stress.

Rasa brews their coffee alternatives from organic, sustainable herbs. Try the sampler pack to see which variety is your favorite!
