Hello from Ives & Christy
Our desire is that the ula and us blog inspires, educates, and provides practical tips and tricks to help you conquer your individual summits.
“Simplify your life, to make room for what matters." This quote struck a chord with me in 2018, as we are continuously trying to optimize our time. I am 100% guilty of being SO optimistic that I over estimate how much I can get done in a day. The first step is to recognize your own struggle and from there, determine what tools you can put in place to help, because I realize it ain't just going to go away... so how can I help myself, help myself? Ya with me? Ya girl needs help!
One easy way to simplify life and save time, is to determine what you can outsource. Taking something off of your plate and paying someone else to do it, so you can focus your efforts on something more meaningful or maybe just something that is needed in your phase of life. Sun Basket, a meal kit delivery service is one example of how I have been doing just that.
Sun Basket is my solution to provide nutritious meals to me and my little family, without the hassle of meal planning or grocery shopping! Don’t get me wrong, I truly enjoy recipe searching and grocery shopping is one of my top favorite things to do, but I needed a little time back in my Sunday. When I received a discount for Sun Basket, with a coupon code for $40 off, I thought why not give it a try, I can always use a hand in the kitchen!
So here's my review for anyone that may be pandering the idea of meal kits.
The Low Down:
You get 3 delicious recipes per week for 2 or 4 people, $11.99 per serving. They are delivered on auto-pilot weekly (each Wednesday in my case) and I recently found out that they launched a feature where you can schedule a basket every two weeks, or once a month rather than every week! Long term, I will probably opt for this!
If you only want it occasionally and when you decide, you can set the default to skip so that you only schedule a basket at your convenience.
Why it wouldn’t work for you:
All in all, I really enjoyed it. It does take away the creative freedom, but you can absolutely add your own ingredients/spices if you chose to do so (obviously, whose stopping you!? Unless you are a rule follower stopping yourself😊). The meals were SO delicious (husband approved), we loved them ALL (no joke) and have stashed some recipes away to make on my own, even without Sun Basket meal kit delivered. It’s a good way to try new recipes that you typically wouldn’t want to buy all the ingredients for or just simply wouldn’t think to give a whirl!
