Sun Basket Meal Delivery

Y’all already know my insane obsession with eating paleo – But now that I’ve had my twins it’s becoming increasingly harder to stay on track when I am busy tending to my home and my three little princes.

But, I need to make sure I also tend to myself so that I’ve got enough energy and strength for my kids, so I decided to begin a meal delivery service to give myself a little break AND help stay on my health track! I’ve tried several companies before but none of them could quite give me the paleo options that my family needed.

That’s when I found Sun Basket and it seemed as though it was made for me. They locally source all of their meats, all of their packaging materials (Besides the ice packs) are completely recyclable and they have many different diet accommodations!

Soon I’ll be posting all about our new delicious paleo recipes that I would’ve probably never thought of because I’d have to hunt the aisles for ingredients and take the time to prep (Which I don’t have at all) so be on the lookout for delicious recipes and pictures SOON.

I loved them so much I actually began a partnership with them! So NOW I’m able to give my readers $80 OFF their first 3 orders! That’s $80 off incredible, nutritious foods that makes life easier. Treat yourself y’all – Try it here!

Whole Foods

Eating whole foods is not as boring as some people may believe it is.. It’s a sore spot lately because I’ve heard so many people say they couldn’t possibly eat nothing but fruits, meats and veggies everyday..

Well, these are just a few snippets of things I wanna show y’all to prove it can be easy, cheap, quick and delicious to treat your body to wholesome real food!

Smoothie Bowl :: 3 minutes TOPS! Banana base (Just add a little water) then top with whatever! DELICIOUS – NUTRITIOUS – CHEAP – ANY.MEAL

So that’s a good start for meals but when asked how I snack? So many different ways, frozen fruits (Yummm..), nuts, sweet potato chips, etc.. But right now my current favorite is Kale Chips!

You can easily bake these on a low temp til crispy but we’ve got a lovely dehydrator that I throw them into after oiling and salting for 5 hours at 113*F. SUPER CHEAP – SUPER DELICIOUS – YUM.

Crazy, right? It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but my Husband and Father in Law who don’t like them usually LOVED mine! Seriously ridiculously cheap and tasty.

Everyone loves salads, right? There are even paleo dressings – And they’re really good! Simple salads are a staple.. They’re super easy and you can throw any type of protein on.. Duh… But this is just to show you you can still enjoy a delicious salad without the guilt of crummy-ingredient dressings!

Yummm.. The ranch is my favorite, SO GOOD.

Lastly, I am frugal-finatic – Got this salmon on sale at King Soopers (Kroger) and Hass Avocados and Purple Cauliflower on sale at Sprouts! It was delicious and added variety instead of chicken or beef which we use a ton 😉

Variety, Variety, Variety – You WILL burn out if you eat a ton of the same stuff over and over. Just find stuff with good ingredients that’ll satisfy whichever craving you’re currently having and your body will thank and reward you.

Smoothie Bowls

I am constantly asked how I make smoothie bowls.. They’re easy, quick, simple and can be pretty, but it also took me awhile to figure out how people were making these beautiful creations at first. I like having the smoothie consistency along with chunks of fruits/veggies/nuts which is different from what you’d get in a standard smoothie obviously.. So it’s nice to change it up if you have a smoothie for breakfast everyday.

I like putting Purely Inspired protein powder or meal replacement in my smoothie mixture because it gives me the energy boost I need in a meal!

The smoothie bowl base is made with whichever fruit you want to use but with less water/milk you’d use in a standard smoothie so that it’s a little more thick/chunky. Then top with whatever you want! Super simple right?!

My favorite is a base of 3 super ripe bananas and meal replacement powder with almond milk! I like mine thick so my fruits can sit on top without sinking in 😉 These are by far my favorite breakfasts.. Try one for yourself and let me know if you do a delicious mixture I need to know about ❥

EatingPrimal

I love finding Paleo eateries around us – It’s so exciting knowing that paleolithic eating is growing, expanding and that there really is a community of paleo enthusiasts EVERYWHERE! So when we heard about EatingPrimal we HAD to try them! They’re an amazing local gourmet food delivery service that makes Paleo and Pure meals.

If you’ve ever tried Blue Apron it’s a little like that BUT the meals are already made and are HEALTHY. So healthy… AND it doesn’t come in a shipping box. They home/business deliver Monday’s and Thursday’s OR you can pick them up from your local Crossfit gym (If they’re partnered 🙂 ) It’s SO convenient! It’s really helped us in a pinch when we didn’t want to head to the store (Which is when the Fast Food idea gets tossed around) but instead we’ve been able to throw their amazing meals in the microwave and EAT. And MAN even their single servings are FILLING!

They have food items I didn’t even know were possible.. Sweet Potato Noodles?! SO GOOD.

So after perusing their menu we decided to start with 3 meals on Monday. I wanted to try their Korean Beef Bowl, Brent wanted their Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Chicken Pasta and we decided to split the Bison Meatloaf and Gravy with Cauliflower Mash for lunch.

MAN. Seriously I have to say one thing – Their sauce is on POINT. It completely changes the meal! It makes the Korean Beef Bowl taste JUST like Chinese Food and the gravy on the Meatloaf was SO savory, which was phenomenal since the meatloaf was already so moist! The pasta was zucchini and accentuated the chicken really well!

After such an amazing day of food we were SO excited for our next delivery today!! We had such an amazing experience with their customer service and the deliveries were always so pleasant! Today for lunch we enjoyed their amazing Hanger Steak with Sage Sweet Potato Noodles (What?!?) and Ancho Chile Chicken Bowl.. They were JUST as amazing as we had hoped. The Chile Bowl has DELICIOUS sauce.. Again with the perfect sauces ❥ And the steak was cooked to perfection and the noodles were something we’re DEFINITELY going to try!!
