For those who know me personally, they know I do not belong in the kitchen. I’m not a great cook, the kitchen is my least favourite place in the house. We’ve got a little inside joke at home because my husband is very “traditional / old school” and grew up learning that a woman’s place is in the kitchen. Ironically enough, he married me. Now, he’s always been the cook over the past seven years. There have been some attempts I made that were a hit or miss. The first time I made Paul lunch on my own, I baked chicken. I asked him how it was after I watched him finish chewing the last few bites of the meal. He smiled and said “it tastes like cardboard.” (He ate the whole thing - what a keeper). Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I made a promise to myself to try to be in the kitchen more often. I was able to learn a little bit as long as I was following a recipe.
I first heard about the meal subscriptions from a YouTube Vlogger in the USA. I was interested back then but never really worked out because the company was based in the US and was expensive. I found out recently that there were other companies based in Canada and decided to give it a try. There are many meal subscriptions available but what made me choose Fresh Prep is that they were local, ethical and sustainable. They “prioritize local farmers who specialize in seasonal, all-natural produce, as well as local small businesses.”
I’ve started using Fresh Prep ever since I went back to work full-time. Thanks to them, I’m learning how to make these amazing meals. The exact ingredients needed are delivered to your door, so you won’t need to worry about groceries!
