BIG NEWS! We’re Relaunching The Family Plan August 14, 2017
You ate, we listened. And now, after months of testing, tasting, re-testing, and crowd-sourcing from kids and adults alike, we’ve reached the 30-minute, 2 pot max, simple, kid-approved, minimal cleanup, Family Plan sweet spot. We may be biased, but we’re pretty sure our new and improved family recipes are revolutionary.
Here’s what you can expect from the revamped Family Plan hitting boxes on August 19.
1. Quick and easy recipes
Simplicity is the name of the game for the revamped Family Plan, which is why most recipes come together in around 30 minutes or less. But it doesn’t stop there. Because they only require two pots/pans MAX (with a whole lot of one-pot wonders like these Pork Carnitas Tacos thrown in there), you can kiss huge stacks of dishes goodbye. Minimal time spent cleaning up means more time for the zillion other tasks on your to-do list.
2. Kid-tested flavor
Recipes may be quick, but that doesn’t mean they skimp out on flavor. In fact, we conducted robust testing to gauge exactly what flavors, cuisines, and ingredients both kids and adults will love. We’re talking things as specific as what type of cheese reigns supreme (spoiler alert: it’s Parmesan, which explains this No-Fuss Pesto Chicken recipe).
3. Parent-approved nutrition
Don’t tell the little ones this, but the meals are balanced, too! They all come with a balance of colorful veggies, meat proteins, and hearty carbs to fill up those tummies and put smiles on everyone’s faces night after night. Case in point: Maple-Glazed Pork Chops with a Sweet Potato Mash and Garlicky Green Beans.
4. Expanded menu options
There’s now five (yes, five!) menu options to choose from every week to allow you more choice and the peace of mind knowing that even the pickiest of eaters will be asking for seconds. Because let’s be honest, three meals per week just doesn’t cut it when we get our hands on a recipe like Beef Rice Noodle Bowls with Carrots, Cucumbers, and Peanut Sauce. HOW CAN YOU RESIST?
5. A whole lot of fun
Instead of spending time planning out meals, fishing for recipes around the web, worrying about whether or not the kids will eat them, and stressing about how long they take to cook, you could let us do it. We’ve got you covered with recipes like these Monterey Jack Burgers with Jammy Red Onions and Zucchini Fries. Now just imagine how much more time you’ll have to do the fun stuff. We’re talking another two rounds of hide-and-seek, the chance to actually finish a game of Monopoly, time to help out with homework, read together before bed, pack tomorrow’s lunch, do laundry… the list goes on.
It’s about time dinner stress turned into dinner time, don’t you think?
Our revamped Family Plan is shaping up to be the best thing since the invention of the carpool. Or babysitters. In fact, the only hard part we foresee is deciding which quick and easy, nutritious, and delicious meals you want in your box.
