Happy Thursday! A lot of people ask me, "what is the HARDEST part about being a new mom?" and for the first few weeks I didn't really have an answer. I don't want to upset anyone by saying that the frequent feedings, dirty diapers, and adjustments were not hard for us-- I actually loved every single minute of it. It wasn't until Lillian was a few weeks old that I realized the hardest thing for me was going grocery shopping!!!!
I could never quite figure out how to take Lillian to the grocery store, get what we needed and then load up the car and then unload and unpack everything at home. It was such a process and by the end of it I would be so hot and sweaty and starving. Inevitably I would reach for the most convenient thing and just eat some chocolate. I tried to make our shopping trips super fast so that we could be home in time for her nap.
I have always been a healthy eater but I find myself with little variety when it comes to snack foods: Fruits and vegetables of course, but then I head for trail mix, dried mangos (which I am allergic to and get really chapped lips), pita chips, and honey wheat pretzels.
I was pleasantly surprised when I first heard about Love with Food, a snack food delivery service that sends you a box of healthy, organic, and delicious snacks. I felt like they were the answer to all of my snack food frustrations! I love the variety in the box and it allowed me to try different things that I never would have purchased. I am surprised I had enough patience to snap even just a few simple photos of the Smarty Pants and Road Trip boxes that arrived on my door step because they arrived on a day when I was particularly hangry! Eating healthy, checking nutrition labels and verifying that things are organic is very important to me while breastfeeding. I want to make sure that what I put in to my body is good enough for my darling daughter.
I also love that Love with Food donates meals to hungry children in America for every package you buy. There are a variety of options that you can get: Tasting Box, Deluxe Box, Gluten-Free Box-- there really is something for everyone.
I just signed Jesse's company up for the Office Box so that healthy snacks can be delivered to the hard working employees of BuildingConnected!
Check out Love with Food today!! I am happy to share discounts to get you started!
