Join the Food Revolution with EVOL foods! #EVOLRealFoodRev

Monday starts t-ball for the twins, which is twice a week.  Ricky has softball, I'm trying to run once a week with my Twin Moms group...yada yada.  To sum it up: our summer is going to be BUSY. There are many nights in the past month where we needed simple and quick meals that are healthy.

My #1 "oh-no, we have to eat dinner NOW" meal to is breakfast for dinner, but that gets boring really fast.  To get us geared up for summer chaos, I've been stocking up our freezer with basics to help my meal planning process: frozen veggies, brown rice, pizza crust, pre-marinaded chicken breasts, etc. One of our favorite new additions is EVOL foods!  I initially tried their meals because they had a cash back deal on Ibotta (a grocery shopping app) from Meijer and have fallen in love since. Their frozen meals have ingredients you can pronounce AND they're quite healthy.

Door to Door Organics: Box TWO {#Giveaway!}

May 25, 2015

Disclaimer: I have partnered with Door to Door organics for a review.  All opinions are my own and I promise to give my honest opinion.

So we are almost a month into this experiment with Door to Door Organics and we are quite pleased.

Quick refresher: we are pretty busy this time of year with the end of the school year, ballet, etc, so I chose to get shipments every other week, instead of weekly.  Also, despite being a family of 5, I chose the small mixed box (fruits and veggies) for our shipments, plus I add a few items from the grocery section.  I am using Door to Door Organics as a supplement to our groceries, not for ALL of our groceries.

If you haven't noticed, I'm all about the delivery services.  For starters, I love getting mail...isn't it the best? I see my FedEx, UPS and mail carrier people more than most of my family! They leave treats for Rambo and ask how my day is going.  Basically, we're besties.

Another reason I love deliveries is for convenience.  We have quite a busy schedule lately and I truly don't have as much time to search for deals and coupons.

I've been using the Absopure home delivery system for a few months now and it's amazing.  Each month, we get water bottles, K-Cups and big water jugs for our water tank.  Our family is pretty well hydrated!

Summer is the time for gatherings- Mother's + Father's Day, baby showers, wedding showers, weddings, BBQs, name it!  I love to buy special gifts that have a meaning behind them.  Since the March of Dimes has partnered up with some great companies, I thought I would show you some gift ideas that help out the organization!

Mmm Monday: Creamy Tomato Basil {Video}

I know, I know. I JUST posted a couple of patio drinks last week and was excited about the warm weather.  But in our house, soup is a year round meal....especially tomato. I've posted my roasted tomato and pepper soup before,  but this one is a bit different!  Since the twins will be on summer break soon, I'm stocking up the freezer with bread, muffins and soup. Mmm, mmm!

Summertime Patio Drinks: Oberon Chelada + Skinny Paloma

I think I can safely say that we have hit the point in the year where there will be NO MORE SNOW here in Michigan (....until October-ish, that is).  YAY!  I love spending my days soaking up that Vitamin D that we've all been so deprived of.

This month, we are trying out Door to Door Organics.  If you're unfamiliar, they deliver organic food (fresh produce, dairy and more!) right to your front door.  I was first on board for the we love to try out new foods!

I know a lot of people are interested in these deliveries, but aren't sure if it can fit in their budget. This month is a somewhat of an experiment to see if it fits in OUR budget and I'm set to give you honest feedback!
