Now for my Purple Carrot review!

Ordering: Big lesson learned (x2) this week- when you order 10 different meal service subscription boxes and try to have them all set to skip you will eventually mess up and have extra food delivered! Not good! I had Home Chef delivered to my home while I was in Santa Fe and now I have Purple Carrot coming again to Santa Fe while I'll be at home! So if you are ordering from a couple of different services I recommend only doing 2-3 at a time so you can keep track of the deliveries.

That issue aside, the ordering process is more simple than other meal services but has fewer options for modifying based on preferences. There are 3 plan options:

  • "1-2 person plan" with 3 preselected meals for $68

  • "3-4 person plan" with 2 of the meals from the 1-2 person plan for $74

I find making detailed lists and rearranging them in the order to be complete and by category. I use the app AnyList, which allows me to share my lists with my hu...

You have a big project due at work so you get there at 7 am to get a head start. You look down at the clock a few minutes later and all of a sudden it's 3 pm and you haven't had a thing to eat all day! Most likely once you get to this point you'll go for anything and everything that crosses your path. After you over indulge you're likely to feel bloated, uncomfortable and fatigued. How can you help build a system of healthy eating when you have a heavy workload and the only convenient foods near your office also happen to be less nourishing or filling? Stocking up on these mini office pantry staples will help you stay nourished and feeling good all week.

1. Nut Butters: Peanut butter, almond butter (good for those with peanut allergies) or sunflower seed butter such as Sun Butter (good for those with both peanut and and tree nut allergies). Any of these selections will give you filling nutrients including protein, fat and fiber.
