Hey luvs! So many of you have been asking me about what I’m eating lately to stay healthy during my pregnancy! So I thought today’s blog post was the perfect opportunity to share what my family and I are currently eating!
I wanna talk about HelloFresh. Yes, I have a partnership with them and I want to be upfront about that from the beginning. But I also want you guys to know that I work with them because I 100%, truly love what they do! I honestly feel like HelloFresh has completely saved me and my sanity at some points.
I don’t know about you guys but I feel like my time and my patience are constantly stretched thin. I hate even admitting that because sometimes it honestly makes me feel like a failure. I’ll get in my head and say things like “shouldn’t you have all your shit together? Shouldn’t you be supermom? What’s wrong with you?” I really get in my head and then stress myself out even more about how I don’t have time to do everything that I need to do in a day.
So how does one possibly eat healthy when they feel stretched so thin? When they don’t even have time to go pee some days never mind have time to feed her family healthy a meal. Well, I have to do some give-and-take here. Do I order takeout sometimes? Of course I do! I’m only human. But with that said, there’s no way I’m going to have my family eating take out seven days a week. But on the flipside I just don’t have time to plan out meals seven days a week, go grocery shopping and cook them for my family! It’s just not happening!
So what do I do? Well I try to limit as many of my responsibilities as possible when it comes to making dinner. And that’s where HelloFresh comes in. I don’t have to meal plan since the recipes are laid out for me. And I don’t have to go to the grocery store which saves me a ton of time! And to be completely honest with you, I hate going to the grocery store. Do I ever go? Of course! We need things in our fridge other than our HelloFresh meals like Molly’s milk and ice cream for me and baby of course! But I just don’t need to go nearly as often when I have HelloFresh delivered right to my doorstep! Not only does the food come to me, but it’s always fresh and delicious! Sometimes when I have friends over and I’ve cooked a HelloFresh meal, they ask to take a picture of my recipe card so they can make it for themselves at home. Those friends are usually the ones not working or without kids. My friends with jobs or kids just get online and sign up for HelloFresh themselves right away! Ha!
Anyway, I really wanted to share this with all you guys because it’s something that I absolutely love and really think is helpful. It’s been such a lifesaver for me that I know it will be helpful for so many of you!
