Food Eyeswoon Kitchen:

Easy Cookin’ ~ Blue Apron!

Blue Apron Main2As EyeSwoon has grown, and I have gotten increasingly busy, I’m afraid to admit that eeeeek… I’ve been cooking far less than I used to! How is this even possible?! I’ve been creating meals during the day, so I can capture my creations when the light (and the food) looks the most perfect through my camera lens. And yes, I admit it, there have been more than a few complaints from Jivan and Victor who seem to be getting the short end of the Eye Swoon stick.

Between cooking on set, photographing dishes, writing and editing posts, keeping up my social media, and emails and meetings… who has the time to shop? Or even think creatively about meal time with the family? It certainly doesn’t help that A. We live in Dumbo, where there’s nowhere to eat. Boo hoo. and B. We have to nowhere to food shop! So 6:00pm in the evening is pretty much reserved for all of us saying, grrrrr… what should eat for dinner?! I know I’m unveiling something you might all be surprised to hear… giving a peak into a tiny shame, because I’m sure everyone thinks that every dinner is lush and swoon-worthy in the EyeSwoon kitchen, but I struggle to feed the fam just like everyone else.

Enter Blue Apron. A MAJOR lifesaver I discovered through a collaboration just last week. It’s such a brilliant brand and service! Blue Apron basically does all the work for you, so on those days when all you do is think, think, think and run, run, run from one meeting to another, you get to come home and not have that dreaded conversation… what do you want for dinner? Well amen and thank you Blue Apron!

So here’s the deal. All you have to do is register for the service  and Blue Apron will show you seasonal weekly options – categorized into veggie & proteins, letting you pre-select your choice of three meals that they’ll deliver – ready to go, right to your door. Inside the box of goodness that arrives is everything you need to create three thoughtful and healthy meals. AND the ingredients are even portioned out for you –  nick knacks in a brown bag included,  too cute! – and come with a step-by-step visual recipe cards. Easy Peasy. Totally foolproof. No thinking required and a fantastic fresh meal to boot!

I am beyond swooned and sold on Blue Apron to solve my mid-week mayhem food conundrum. As an added bonus Blue Apron is offering 2 free meals to the first 250 swooners who sign up HERE!  Major score!
