Eat Pak’d Review

Lunch time for my girls can sometimes be a struggle. We try new things and most the time, it’s a complete fail. I try to make it exciting, cutting different shapes and making faces with their food, but we always end up in the same slump. We go back to our main staples and I can’t stand it. There are only so many days a week I want to make the same thing over and over.

Also, with homeschooling, I can’t take all morning prepping lunch. It needs to be quick and easy, so it doesn’t take any time away from learning. I desperately wanted something new for my kids. That’s when I found Eat Pak’d.

One day, during nap time, I was browsing around on Facebook. I came across a sponsored ad for Eat Pak’d and basically, it was this young boy explaining what it was and it caught my eye. They were fun, little packaged lunches that could surprise my girls daily with healthy food to eat. They can even pick out what they want for the following week, as the menu changes. How cool!

The ordering process is so easy. They list the meals for you to pick from and you just select the ones you wish to receive. The great thing is that,  if your child doesn’t like something, you can swap it out for another option or make your own combo and pick a special name to call it.

They come in a box with freezer packs that keep the lunches cool until it’s time to take them out of the package. Check out great these look!

They are perfectly packaged, so you can see what comes in each pack and they easily snap apart to fit into any lunch box!

 

The quality of food that comes in each pack is great! It’s super fresh and delicious. Yes, I made sure to sneak a bite of everything that came. Some of the things I never thought my kids would try, but they did! Some things were quickly shoved to a side, However, most of the food that came, both my girls enjoyed!

^^This girl is my picky eater!

She was so excited every day to get a new lunch out of the refrigerator to try!

^^This is the face of food concentration!

Anything that her sister passed on ended up on her plate. She didn’t let a single package of food go to waste!

Eat Pak’d is so awesome! I highly recommend it for any busy parent to give to their kids. Take back lunch time with Eat Pak’d!

Martha and Marley Spoon Sweet and Sour Chicken

 

I am such a huge fan of subscription meal boxes. They make my life so much less complicated and stressful! Having the ability to just open a box and all of my ingredients are right there without having to decide what to make is genius!

This box is from Martha and Marley Spoon! Martha, as in Martha Stewart. So, you know the food is going to be good! Now, not all the ingredients are organic, however, they are great quality. Just washing the produce thoroughly is really key.

I had this whole plan of setting up to record the whole process of making this meal. My daughters, on the other hand, had other plans in mind. They wanted to commentate. I’m sure this would have been absolutely hilarious, but I didn’t want to miss any steps. Instead, I decided to record as I was cooking and take a lot of pictures. No judging, my camera and editing skills are still lacking, but this is worth the watch!

This sweet and sour chicken recipe was so good! Joe and I are both huge fans of Chinese food. We serve a lot of foods over rice and this is exactly what we like. The Chinese broccoli really threw me off. I have never seen that before, but it was good! We both agreed that if we can find this locally, we will be cooking with it more often!

This meal gets 2 thumbs up from the Taylor family. Even our children liked it! Rylynn wasn’t a huge fan of the broccoli, but liked the chicken and rice! Remy has very few foods that she doesn’t like. She ate everything we gave her!

Thank you, Martha and Marley Spoon!! Stay tuned for the other recipe I made from this box!!

Sun Basket Unboxing Review

I can’t tell you how excited I was to open my Sun Basket box when the Fed Ex driver dropped it off. I was running around trying to get my children situated so I could get that bad boy opened.

If you don’t know what Sun Basket is, they are a meal delivery service based out of the West Coast that offers meals that are all organic, containing no hormones or antibiotics, humanely raised, fresh ingredients to make some fancy looking meals! They have a lot of different options to fit all diet needs. I personally chose a steak, shrimp and cod dish to try. I got 3 meals, each having 2 servings.

I received notice on Tuesday that my package was shipped and on Wednesday it was delivered. I was very surprised to feel that the box was cool to touch. Which made me happy. I was a little nervous on how all the works, considering they are shipping meat.

20160720_212641Well, there it is! Loved the box design. I think that’s initially what made me excited. It just screams… Open Me!

20160720_212919_resizedThe Box is fully insulated and was cool to the touch. I knew everything that was inside remained the appropriate temperature throughout it’s travel. Opening you can see that all three meals have their own back of ingredients. I thought this was awesome. How much easier can it get right?

Under all food bags was another cooler section that had freezer packs surrounding the meat! How smart!

20160720_213012_resized

The meat looked great. The best part that they are labeled with handling instructions and when to use by. So, even if your plan isn’t to cook right away, you’ll know when you need to do it by.

It comes with all the recipe cards as well and any tips you may need when it comes to cooking your food.

Thank you, Sun Basket!
