Since quarantine began, I’ve certainly had my share of struggles keeping healthy options on the table for my family. While many people suddenly found themselves with an abundance of time to prepare homemade meals from scratch and create and enjoy new foods, my cards didn’t quite fall into place in the same way. Like many parents of very young children, any and all of my “extra time” was now focused on other things, and getting to prepare new recipes and meals that require more than 15 minutes of prep and cook time flew out the window.
While most of my time in the kitchen is now spent making grilled cheese sandwiches and cutting grapes into tiny pieces for my girls, I’ve found myself in a culinary rut trying to find something quick and healthy to fix for myself and my husband, who started working from home at the beginning of this pandemic. Now more than ever, it’s incredibly important to fill up on nutrient-dense foods that fuel our bodies with vitamins and clean ingredients to help keep our immune systems operating in a healthy manner.
That’s where Splendid Spoon stepped up and saved the day during our quarantine-cooking blues!
Splendid Spoon is a subscription service that delivers healthy and precooked meals and smoothies straight to your door every week (or every other week, depending on how you choose to space out your deliveries.) Every single meal is plant-based, gluten free, contains no GMO’s and is made entirely out of clean and fresh ingredients. All meals are also soy-free, low in sugar and sodium. You’re able to easily customize and choose which meals you will receive in each shipment, so planning around any dietary needs is a breeze!
There are 3 subscription options available. You can choose the “Lunch” subscription, which contains 5 meal bowls for you to enjoy each day of the week. The “Breakfast + Lunch” subscription box (which is what I received) contains 5 plant-based breakfast smoothies and 5 meal bowls. The largest subscription option is the “Breakfast + Lunch + Reset” subscription, which contains 5 breakfast smoothies, 5 meal bowls and 5 light soups which are meant to be enjoyed in one day as a “reset” to your digestive system.
This subscription service particularly appealed to me because of the nutritional breakfast smoothies. I began making my own smoothies for breakfast in January of this year as a way to make sure I’m packing in nutrients first thing in the morning to help me fuel and power through my day. Creating my own smoothies has certainly had it’s share of challenges, as I was always left completely guessing on what to include and how to make them taste good. I’ve probably had more failures than successes on making great tasting smoothies on my own, so I was extremely excited to give their collection of beautiful smoothies a try. I love that all of the ingredients are featured clearly on the front of each bottle, and the majority of the ingredients are things that I would typically not have access to, like baobab powder and dragon fruit!
These smoothies are also a great way to make sure little ones are getting proper nutrients, too. My daughters have asked for a sip of my smoothies on multiple occasions! The meal bowls have been absolutely wonderful, and my husband and I have really appreciated the variety of foods available. How often can you say you had an Aloo Gobi Quinoa bowl for lunch?! The ingredients in each meal feel very well thought out, and certainly unique compared to things I typically cook. I’ve always considered myself an adventurous eater, and I love any opportunity I can get to try foods that are new to me.
While quarantine has certainly been a challenge, having Splendid Spoon shipped to my door every week has truly given us something wonderful to look forward to. I know that what I’m eating is healthy and full of nutrients, and I didn’t have to cook anything at all, just simply heat and go!
