What’s for Dinner?


Going back to school is upon us. Those words alone will make you take a deep sigh and shake your head. I, for one, am a fan of making things easier. After having to raise my voice several times for my kids to wake up, eat breakfast, make sure they have on matching shoes, and get them to their destination on time, I am beat. And that’s just the morning! Once they arrive home, there’s homework, cleaning up to do, bathtime, and then the dreaded question is finally asked: WHAT’S FOR DINNER?

If you have a personal chef, it works out fine, but for those of us who actually have to cook, how can we make it easier?

Meal prep! While it may not be a personal chef, it’s as close as you can get. Meal prep companies will prep meals for your family so that all you have to do is warm it up or assemble it and serve.

Mindful Meals is known for providing healthy meal prep options. The owners recognized the importance and need for a meal prep company that served the needs of athletes.

“The family plan is a great option to ensure a quick and healthy meal for the busy weeknights. You’ll get two meals on Monday and two on Wednesday with kid-friendly options like Thanksgiving dinner and pulled pork with peach BBQ sauce.”

The Mindful Meals family plan costs about $145 a week with other options as well.

Mr. Meal Orlando is an affordable meal prepping service starting at $5 per meal. A new menu comes out every Thursday and you have the option to choose between two meal options. Meals can last up to 5 to 6 days from the day you receive them and can be warmed up easily.

Freshly offers a great menu with a wide variety of options for food, pricing, and consistency. Options for both gluten-free and dietary needs are available as well. Going through the reviews, many people agree that they love the convenience of the delivery system as well as every meal being packaged and ready to warm up.

Hello Fresh is always advertising specials! Currently, you can receive 14 free meals with your purchase plus free shipping. I love the concept of Hello Fresh because you can still cook your meals but you don’t have to put a lot of thought and preparation into it. Your delivery comes with all the ingredients you need to make a tasty, healthy meal for your family. They also have a great variety of meals to choose from and their prices seem to be highly competitive for all that you receive.

The 2020-2021 school year was pretty tough dealing with COVID-19 and keeping our families safe and healthy. We want to make sure 2021-2022 comes in and has a seat with no foolishness. We are claiming “ease” this year. So, let’s start with taking the guesswork out of dinner every night, and putting it in someone else’s hands; giving us time to enjoy what really means the most: our family!
