Streamlining the dinner routine with Blue Apron

This post is sponsored through my partnership with Blue Apron. The first 50 readers to order will get two free meals here!

Before Delivery Day arrives, I’ve been trying to streamline our routines as much as possible. I know the days are closely ahead that will consist of feeling like I’m busy all day, and going to bed without feeling like I’ve accomplished much (besides keeping tiny humans alive, happy and fed). Thankfully, the Pilot and I have it down to a fairly orchestrated chaos that works well for us; we swoop in to help each other out when we need it.

On Sundays, I’ll usually clean the house while he takes Liv for the weekly grocery and Target run. Before they head out to get groceries, we’ll sit down and think of ideas for dinners and snacks so we can write out the list. Lately, it’s been a lot of, “Umm. I don’t know. What do you want?” “I don’t know. What do you feel like?” and we’ll resort back to the usual staples.

Thankfully, Blue Apron has significantly streamlined our dinner routine. Not only do we find ourselves constantly trying new things, but there’s something truly magical about having the bulk of your groceries picked out for you, delivered to your doorstep, and recipes to create chef-quality meals at home.

During Blue Apron weeks, our grocery bills are remarkably less expensive (since we’re only buying breakfast, lunch and snack staples, and far less proteins since we usually consume those at dinnertime), and the quality of the produce is consistently amazing.

Banana flour chocolate chip cookies

Hellooooo. How was the long weekend? Anyone else moving in slow motion this morning? 😉 Behold, the latest and greatest on the gluten-free, dairy-free, Paleo-friendly front: Banana Flour.

New one-song workouts for fall

Hi friends! How’s the morning going??  Yesterday I had to get some blood work done, so I grabbed the usual celebratory green juice afterwards.  It’s no longer a belly; it’s a legit shelf. 😉 Lunch was a TBLAT: tempeh bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato (+ mayo) on a brown rice tortilla.

Happy Squatember (Challenge #1) + back in the game

Hiiii! How’s the morning going? It’s a great one over here because breakfast was waiting for me. It’s almost enough motivation to wake up early and crawl out of bed when you know you have something delicious waiting in the fridge. I’ve been going crazy for this new Trader Joe’s Super Seed mix. It has […]

A comfy guest room with a small space

This post is sponsored by Leesa.  There’s quite a bit happening in our house right now! We’re moving a ton of baby items in from storage, shuffling things around, starting to baby-proof, and redecorating. And…because I’m crazy, I thought I’d make some changes to Livi’s room, too (I think it’s safe to say that nesting […]

TRX Superset Workout

Hi friends! Happy humpday! Hope you’re enjoying the week. I am DRAGGING today, which is totally my fault because I stayed up way too late reading this book. Source It’s perfectly scandalous and intriguing; everything an end-of-summer read should be. It’s also been some welcomed respite from the dry birth books I’ve been re-reading/skimming. I’ve […]

the end of an era

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Hope you’ve been enjoying the morning! It’s raining here, which has been cozy and absolutely beautiful (and much needed here in CA, where we currently have a crazy drought). Liv and I were total sleepyheads and took our time getting ready this morning. Thank you so much for your […]

PiYo Review: Month 1

Hi friends! How’s the afternoon going? Some Facebook friends and I just finished up the first month of PiYo yesterday, and I thought I’d write a review. I’d been wanting to try a new Beachbody workout (<— coach link) for a while -especially since P90X3 was a womp- and hadn’t committed to anything, especially since they […]
