Happy Take a Taste Tuesday! This week I have partnered with Fare and Square, a meal preparation service that is local to Columbus. Fare and Square offers individual curated meals and a la carte proteins and sides to allow you to mix and match to create a meal of your choosing. You can order what you need from a menu that changes weekly. Orders need to be placed by 3 p.m. on Friday, and the food is delivered on Sunday afternoon (or you can pick up on Monday or Tuesday free of charge).
Now that we are back on our school schedule, life is a definitely more hectic than it was this summer. By the time we are home as a family, the last thing I want to do is spend time in the kitchen prepping dinner. What is wonderful about this particular meal prep service is that the food comes fully prepared, so all that is required is reheating it in the microwave or oven. (I tend to think the food tastes better reheated in the oven, but the microwave is faster.)
Each week the menu changes to offer a variety of food combinations that I wouldn’t of thought to pair (or have the skill to create). The food choices have gotten me out of my comfort zone a few times, and I love that it allows me to introduce my daughter to new foods that are prepared well. The menu offers a variety of sides that generally wouldn’t be considered your typical “kid food,” but that is alright with me. I have watched my daughter try a variety of new foods that would not have been on her plate had it not been for Fare and Square.
This has been my go to meal preparation service for the past year. When I know our week is going to be especially busy, I try to plan ahead so a well balanced dinner is waiting for us at home. Fare and Square is also my go-to baby gift for new families. It’s a wonderful way to provide a new mom with a healthy well balanced meal and not subject her to my cooking. If you are ready to give it a try be sure to use the code saynplaycolumbus15 for 15% off your entire purchase. If you’re looking for some meal planning advice, I highly recommend the pork tenderloin, gnocchi, and summer vegetables as a meal combination.
Disclaimer: We were provided free meals from Fare and Square in exchange for a collaborating post. We have previously been enthusiastic customers of this meal preparation service and were excited for the opportunity to partner. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
