If you’re like me—I eat out ALL the time. I mean, if someone else can do it better, who am I to get in their way? Also, the prep time for cooking and the clean up is not my forte. It’s too time consuming and I have trouble following recipes and directions. Which is probably a personal problem. Basically, I don’t have the time, energy or patience to cook myself a nice meal. However, recently, I discovered really great subscription meals, prepping bases and pre-portioned meal plans, which actually saves my life. In fact, I already cooked the Real Eats meal while writing this..
RealEats, is a newly-launched subscription service that delivers healthy and deliciously prepared meals, served in a vacuum-sealed pouch. Each meal is made by one of America’s most renowned chefs who collaborated with Real Eats’ Executive Chef Katy Sparks, including Dale Talde, Bill Telepan, Kat Turner, Lien Lin, and Silvia Baldini. Meals stay fresh in the fridge for seven days from delivery and are prepared by placing the pouch into boiling water –and simply waiting for 6 minutes!!! THAT’S IT! It was so easy and there’s no microwaving or nuking, which just puts this over the top! Order yours on www.realeats.com
The ultimate cooking hack that cuts the prep time in half—finally. I hate prep! Also, I’m not good at slicing, dicing or creating a good base sauce that actually tastes good, hence, enter: Santina’s Harvest. Santina’s Harvest is a quick, easy and healthy way to add some character to your meal! Their new all-natural sauces are GMO, sugar & gluten-free as well as low on cholesterol and sodium. They offer flavors such as Blanco, Verde and Rojo – all shelf stable. These three base sauces are a blend of fresh vegetables, inspired by Italian “sofritto”. Santina’s Harvest suggests that customers use their imagination with the sauces by adding it to their own creations. The sauces can be used in marinades of all meats, seasonings of all roasts, homemade salad dressing, or added to butter, mayo and sour cream. By jarring their delicious sauce, Santina’s Harvest is giving everyone the chance to prepare all natural, flavorful food in their own kitchen without the hassle! Their products have a remarkably sustainable shelf life due in part to the vinegar & sea salt – giving the sauces a pickled effect. Santina’s harvest is available in select supermarkets and available nationwide via HSN.com. For a complete listing, visit www.santinasharvest.com.
