Food is not only a necessity, but for some it's a luxury; others, an obsession. No matter how you feel about food, two factors are universal when it comes to it... Time and Money.
In today's world, it seems that things are always moving - our day-to-day, technology, etc. With the hustle of our world it gets hard to truly take our time with things that are as important to us as our food and health. Like time and money, food and health go hand-in-hand. We all want to make sure we're eating healthier and slowing down to appreciate the small things, but in reality, it's hard.
Why go to the grocery store and spend an hour or more buying expensive healthy options, that you will also have to cook later, when you can go to a fast food restaurant for something cheaper and not even have to get out of your car? It's nothing to be ashamed of, we all do it, but it is something to take notice.
We must be better to our bodies and self. While an adjustment, it's actually not as time consuming and expensive as you might think to change any bad food habits. Thanks to companies like PlateJoy, you can start saving time and eating better tomorrow!
What is PlateJoy? PlateJoy is a meal subscription unlike other plans you're used to seeing. With no waste like the other delivery options out there that specialize in boxes packed with dry ice and plastic containers, this company goes beyond the food. When signing up with PlateJoy, you will receive tailored meal plans that include recipes and grocery lists for more flexibility and control. Thanks to their Digital Pantry, PlateJoy remembers what you have on hand to make sure you get grocery lists that smartly reduce food waste and cost as well. It doesn't matter whether you have a special dietary need, looking to lose weight, or just need something fast and easy, PlateJoy has you covered.
As for your time, the tailored meal plans take the guessing work out of what you're going to eat, and the grocery lists take care of what's needed. PlateJoy then goes a step further with their Instacart partnership and offers grocery delivery. You really can't get easier than that AND customers will get a coupon code for $20 off their first Instacart order + FREE delivery. That's a $30 value right there!
Okay, speaking of value, let's talk about the money part. Plans start as low as $8 a month and they're still offering $10 off PlateJoy subscriptions with promo code GET10- not to mention their free trial which saves money too. So far you are getting a total of $40 in savings for peace of mind and convenience. As for the reoccurring costs, some plans can end up being $2 for each meal per person or less and sometimes $2 per DAY.
To give an even better idea on how much you can save, PlateJoy's CEO/Founder, Christina, went on a pre-year resolution challenge last year and realized how much she was saving by meal planning and prepping. One example...
Cashews: $3 in bulk bins
Yogurt: $6 for 5
Almond butter: $8
Total = $5/lunch, or about half of what she'd pay if she was eating out, and she still had ingredients left over for a snack.
You can't beat that unless you're ordering something off the dollar menu which is, let's face it, the worst on the menu for you.
So, while it might seem easier and faster to get that processed granola bar with 15g of sugar than a fancy green juice from a trendy new store, remember you have other options.
Try out PlateJoy today and see how you can reduce your grocery bill, increase the quality of food you eat, and not feel like you just tacked on more things to your daily to-do list.
You won't be disappointed, and you'll feel better too!
