Completely overhauling our diets is hard when it comes the convenience of snacks. I haven't done it all for none. I've made sure to cut out certain things here and there. I'm taking baby steps and progressing a little at a time. It's hard enough convincing the boys that my "healthy food" isn't just a kick I'm on for me! I didn't want to just start buying new stuff because of labels and ingredients though. You can spend a lot of money on "good for you stuff" that tastes like a cardboard box. Boxed foods are what I'm trying to avoid anyway - whether it is in a box or tastes like one! LOL There are things out there that are more convenient and that do come prepackaged that are good for you! It's scary buying them though because of the unknown. I was sharing this new revelation with a friend of mine at church. She introduced me to Love With Food.
Here's how it works. I sign up for either monthly membership or I can sign up for more. With this being new, I am just doing month to month for now. Each month, I'll receive a Love with Food box in the mail with samples of yummy gourmet food. Food with REAL ingredients - none of the bad stuff. For each box I purchase, LWF will donate a meal to a needy family. Also, with giving reviews and such for items found in my box, I earn points toward purchases of items from the website.
Yesterday, I received my first box.
