my secret to meal balance

Working a 9-to-5 and living the side hustle life can be tough to balance. For me, I struggle the most with food. I'm either snacking away as I work, or I get so caught up in the hustle I forget a meal. 

I tried meal planning on Sunday, only to give up by Monday. I'd hate the food waste caused by either being too lazy/distracted/unengaged to cook, or by having to buy more than I needed cooking for one. The typical solutions to ensuring I stuck to a balanced diet just weren't working for me. 

So I was super excited when I received a flyer in the mail (hey, sometimes old school marketing methods work!) for Goodfood. They deliver four recipes right to my door along with the exact amount of ingredients required to cook them! The only exception would be pantry basics like salt and pepper. 

My main worry was definitely the quality of the food. I mean, how fresh could those veggies be? Not only are the basics like meat, fruits and vegetables high quality, the pasta they sent for my ramen recipe were fresh. Not dried. From that moment on, I was sold. 

They deliver once a week to my door. I don't have to worry about being home because the Goodfood boxes are designed to keep the food cold, plus they are 100% recyclable. My recipes serve two, so I save the leftovers for the next day's lunch. Because they don't even skimp on serving sizes. Plus, constantly changing up the recipes is forcing me to always try new foods. 

I mean, I cooked plantains. And ate them! 

The second feel good thing about ordering from Goodfood? They are a Futurpreneur Canada supported business. Aka, my 9-to-5 job helped get this Canadian company started! 

So if you struggle with balance when it comes to getting in your breakfast and lunch, might I suggest Goodfood?

FRESH FREAKING PASTA NOODLES

I still don't believe it to be honest.

Hey, so though this is not a sponsored post, I did include my referral link as a Goodfood member. If you sign up through this link, you'll get a $40 credit for your Goodfood purchase and a $25 credit will slide on in to my next order. Just wanted to be upfront on that. But there are a lot of meal kit options out there. Pick the one that works for you!
