Menu Makeovers with Menu Therapy!
Tuesday July 16, 2013see more by christy
My family needs a dinner menu makeover. Does yours?
Could you use a family meal planning service? I could, because I always seem to be stuck in the same weekly food rut, cooking the same things over and over again because…
1.) It’s convenient. I default to comfortable when I’m busy.
2.) I always “pin” hundreds of recipe ideas on Pinterest and then don’t have time to shop or actually cook them.
3.) Many of the recipes I find look delicious, but then take 70 minutes to prepare and two hours to cook – who has the time?
4.) My cupboard full of all of the cookbooks we got for our wedding – with literally thousands of recipes – can be overwhelming when I want something quick during the week – seriously, I don’t need gourmet, I need a tasty chicken and veggie dish.
5.) I’m tired. (Not lazy, just tired by dinnertime!)
Can any of you relate?
I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to chat with our newest Tiny Oranges sponsor, Menu Therapy, about their fabulous family meal planning services they offer. They are offering the first month free for all Tiny Oranges’ readers, make sure to read below on how to sign up so you can try it out yourself!
Picture this – a new week rolls around and you can log in to Menu Therapy’s site and have access to five delicious, healthy family-friendly recipes, complete with a grocery list organized by food group. My favorite part is the grocery list, already planned out. Be still my heart.
Once logged in, you can also peek at the past month’s recipes so that as a new subscriber, you are still able to see what they’ve been cooking up for the past four weeks.
My next favorite part is that the culinary pro behind these fabulous menus, Loryn, picks five meals that will use ALL of the ingredients she puts on your list. No more recipes that call for a “pinch” of cilantro or a teaspoon of whatever…and then the rest goes bad because you don’t use it in another meal.
Hmmmm, a planned menu, well-balanced, delicious recipes, an organized grocery list, and a way to be more efficient with my food budget. What else could I ask for?
Oh, I know. Access to the chef!
Loryn explains that she created Menu Therapy to share her passion for food, healthy eating, and an easy way to help mamas who love to cook.
And because of that, she gives all of her clients her personal email address. She explains, it’s basically like having a “personal chef on speed dial.” So when you run out of an ingredient and want to substitute, have a dietary restriction question, or even want to know what an ingredient is, just send her a quick email!
Here are her Menu Plan Options
For only $15 per quarter (that’s just $5/month), choose from one of her tasty menus:
Yep, you read that correctly. She creates prenatal menus for all of you expectant mamas! (Disclaimer: Loryn writes – “I’m a chef not a doctor. Always consult with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns about your diet while pregnant.”)
