It’s summer time, who wants to waste it inside of a grocery store walking down freezing aisles trying to buy enough food so you don’t starve for the week, yet dreaming of how you could be on the beach? Well, we have the perfect solution(s)! There are tons of new sites popping up that will deliver food right to your door. And I’m not just talking about PeaPod or FreshDirect. I’m talking some good quality shh. We ran a post a little while back on some of our faves. Here comes round two…
Fill up your online cart and a personal shopper will deliver it to you in about an hour. Um, yes please?! (Although they’re not available everywhere (yet), they are available in the big cities: NYC, Philly, Chicago, LA.)
You know the rage this summer is all about farmers markets. Can’t seem to get to one, but don’t want to miss out on the trend? Fresh Nation will have the food delivered to you! No more carting heavy bags up five flights of stairs.
You can also check out your local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Some require pick up, but at least you’ll be outside!
Listen up here, I know this title may be shocking to some of you as this is a blog about recipes, but we all have those moments that we are just too tired or bored with our go-to meals that we need a little help from the outsiders. Below are some suggestions for the times where we can’t be bothered with grocery lists, grocery store lines, and just the whole thinking of how and what to make.
First batter up is, Blue Apron – Their claim to fame is: “A better way to cook. Fresh ingredients, great recipes delivered weekly to your home”.
Our second contender (by the way this is in no specific order, definitely not in terms of preference either) is Plated – which is similar to the above in that they want you to: “Cook something extraordinary tonight. Chef-designed recipes & fresh ingredients delivered to your door”.
Last is this little gem that I referenced in my weeknight dinner recipe. It somehow got buried in the rambling of my blog post, Fresh 20 – means shopping for 20 Ingredients in 20 Minutes to prep the entire week’s meals. It takes an hour at the start of your week to save you valuable time during busy weeknights.
I don’t want to hear any of you ever sigh and say “I just can’t”. Good food doesn’t have to be a pain in the butt. Get your A game on and check out one of these sites to help you eat well with minimal effort.
