As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her Halloween looks. I was even more pleasantly surprised that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Head to our blog to find out how. Have you ever made your own costume? .

I will never forget the day we brought Elle home from the rescue. Super Dad took one look at her and said he was sure she was part lion... She was just missing the mane. So, when we had to decide what type of costume to get Elle this year for Halloween, I knew she HAD to be a lion! And @chewy had the perfect costume for her! Of course, Super Dad and Falynn had to get in on the action too. 
Now tell us, WHO WORE IT BEST?
Super Dad, Falynn or Elle?

Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

Life is hectic. While I wish I could get everything in my schedule done and still have time to grocery shop and prepare beautiful home cooked meals for my family, it doesn’t always work out as planned.  While I wish we had a personal chef, that’s just not an option (at least not on our budget).  There are nights when I’m still working at 7pm and we are forced to order take out and while it’s not all bad, it’s expensive and not always the healthiest option. So what is a Mom with limited time to do?  Meal subscription services to the rescue! Here are the top 5 reasons to get a meal subscription plus a fabulous deal!

First, let’s talk about the deal… My first 50 readers will get $40 off their first two weeks of Blue Apron! Just click here.

1. Saves You Time

There was a time when I would spend approximately 2-3 hours a week planning our weekly meals.  I would check the local grocery store flyer, search for recipes, make a weekly menu based on what was on sale, search for coupons and then go grocery shopping (with all three kids).  Are you exhausted just thinking about that? I am. While it was fabulous to have all of the ingredients we needed to prepare each meal, I found that the fruits and veggies wouldn’t be fresh by day 3 or 4 and some of the fresh ingredients were sold in higher quantities than I needed.  I found myself throwing away food that I had just spent money on and in some cases, making a second trip to the store to re-purchase items I still needed for a recipe later that week.

With Blue Apron, I am only sent what I need for the meals I have chosen. There is no abundance of ingredients and it’s all right there in the box so no need for me to shop.  All of the meals can be prepared in 40 minutes or less, so I’m not spending too much time in the kitchen and am able to spend that extra time with my family, enjoying our delicious, chef-designed meals.

2. Cooking Can Be a Fun Activity for Families

With all of the shopping done for me and with some extra time, I’m able to invite my girls into the kitchen to help me cook.  Blue Apron provides recipe sheets with your delivery that are easy to read.  My girls love to follow each recipe and see their meals come to life.  It’s a chance for us to spend time together, creating something that we can all enjoy and I find that they are more likely to try something new when they’ve been a part of cooking it.

3. Portion Control

While I love to cook, I have a habit of cooking too much.  While we could save some for leftovers the next day, we tend to get seconds and sometimes even thirds, leaving our bellies way too full and nothing left for lunch the next day.  Our portions can get out of control.

Blue Apron allows you to choose from 2-person or family sized meals and they will only deliver the ingredients for the amount of servings you’ve requested.  With our healthier lifestyle, we are now able to perfectly portion the meals for our family and won’t have to worry about overeating or wasting food.

4. Variety

Let’s face it, we probably all have our favorite dishes and we tend to make the same meals over and over again.  It may be comfort, lack of time or just plain laziness. While I can search the internet for new recipe ideas, I just don’t have the time so we wind up eating the same handful of meals each week. While I know the kids will love them, it gets boring and doesn’t expand their tastes beyond spaghetti and vegetarian tacos.

With Blue Apron, you are able to choose from a large selection of recipes and because they are always adding new dishes, you can try new recipes every time.  There are 8 recipes to choose from each week and you can choose any combination of recipes you’d like! So instead of constantly eating the same meals each week, you are experiencing new meals. It makes meal time just a little more exciting for our family.

5. Fresh Ingredients

Blue Apron delivers your ingredients in a refrigerated box.  The ingredients will stay fresh, even if you aren’t home when it arrives.  These ingredients are all sourced from quality suppliers. I was very pleasantly surprised to find everything wrapped and labeled.  It was easy to just transfer from the refrigerated box, straight to our refrigerator.  When it was time to cook, I pulled the ingredients that are listed on each recipe sheet and had everything ready to go.

So, want to know which two meals we had last week?  We enjoyed Soy-Orange Salmon with Fried Rice and Spiced Rice and Bean Enchiladas.   Both were prepared by myself and my two younger daughters.  The portions were perfect and while everyone cleaned their plates, we didn’t find that we needed anymore to satisfy our hunger.  I was able to adjust the spiciness of the enchiladas by using only half of the spice packet and my kids absolutely loved them.  It was actually the first time they had ever tried enchiladas.  Both recipes were easy to make and tasted incredibly fresh and delicious.

While I’ve provided more than enough reasons for you to try Blue Apron, I have one more! They are offering my first 50 readers $40 off of their first two weeks of Blue Apron!   You can cancel or skip at any time, so what can you lose? Try them out.  We know you’ll love them as much as we do!

    This is such a helpful service. I’m not sure if it is available in my neighbourhood/city, but it would certainly save us a lot of time and I love that it helps to portion control.

    I like the convenience of these delivery services but much like picking up groceries I always worry about the little things being different than I would choose. I may just overthink it like everything but I have only had good experiences so far.

    Yes I can totally relate on not having extra time to prepare and cook meals now that I have a four month baby. This sounds a great help for busy moms like me.

    Cooking can be such a huge chore. Lately, I have been trying new recipes and making foods that is tasty. I can’t say everything that ive been making lacks preservatives but we aren’t eating out highly processed foods every single meal. It does take a bit more work but it is so much better. Now if only my youngest will stop turning up his nose to healthy food options. He would live off mac n cheese, pasta, or chicken nuggets.

    I can’t wait to start my Blue Apron subscription up again!!
    Their food is SO dang good!
    For real!
    Some of my favorite recipes also have come from them!
    The food quality is top notch too!

    I really have loved having meal subscriptions. I have tried a few of them, I can’t seem to keep up with them right now, but will be doing them again.

    Blue Apron is a great service for those who are looking for curb their cravings. And yes, prepping meals can be exciting with your family and friends.

    I hate deciding what to eat for dinner. I really should look into a meal subscription as it would at least help point me in a direction! I love the idea of having my portions controled too!

  • Heather
    March 19, 2018

    I’ve thought about doing Blue Apron before, but I do wonder if I’d be able to keep my $400 grocery budget in check doing this. I certainly can’t make the budget bigger, but would love the opportunity to have more variety in my life with meals designed by a chef.

  • Jeanette
    March 19, 2018

    I have been thinking about doing this, but I have not actually pulled the trigger yet. You have a lot of great reasons here and I think I should try it. It has a lot of variety and I like how healthy the food is.

  • Angie
    March 19, 2018

    I have been seriously considering doing this… I’m not sure I want to spend the money just yet, but man it would make life so much easier.

  • Sarah Bailey
    March 19, 2018

    I have to admit I’ve been thinking about doing a meal subscription service, I am awful at coming up with ideas for things to cook and this would take the hassle out of it.

  • Paula Schuck
    March 19, 2018

    I have tried almost every single one of these but not Blue Apron. I need to try Blue Apron. Do they deliver to Canada too? We love these services for the reasons you noted here. We love cooking together when the subscription box comes in.

  • Stacie
    March 19, 2018

    I really want to try this. I’m so pressed for time ALL the time, and I would love to be able to help make real meals with my husband and enjoy them with the kids.
