As I began my journey with Project Totus, I knew that I would have the challenge of learning to eat healthy and nutritious meals and feed my family. As a graduate student, freelance writer, wife, and mom of three streamlining meal time or other activities helps me create space for balancing all the things I need to do: clean, exercise, spend quality alone time, write, study, play with my kids, walk the dog,
watch real house wives, journal... WHEW! I am tired just looking at the to-do list.
If you are anything like me, I like things that help me be effecient without being overly complicated. I got recently got the chance to work with CollectiveBias (#cBias) for a really cool shopping opportunity. I got to try out "WalMart Meal Solutions". The WalMart Meal Solutions App allows you to explore suggested meals and snacks, add them to your meal box, and even email yourself your meal planner. The WalMart Meal Solution App even provides a shop list with the recipe. It is quick, succinct, and has good meal options. Part of Project Totus has been dedicating myself to six weeks of vegan and vegetarian eating. When people hear the words "vegan" and "vegetarian" they frequently think meal planning requieres specialty and natural food stores. The reality, however, is that you can shop at your neighborhood grocery store, WalMart, and find exactly what you need.
I chose Linguini in Tomato Sauce with Garlic Toast. I added more vegetables to the recipe:
I think that anyone who has a thing for social media and online gadgets would love this app. I especially like that you can email yourself your meal plan that includes a shopping list. The WalMart Meal Solutions App has:
1) healthy meal options
2) easy to follow cooking instructions
and 3) color pics of the finished recipe. I always like a visual of what I am making :)
I made a quick and easy Vegetarian #family meal in less that 30 mins, using all the things I found on the WalMart Meal Solutions App. Check out this deliciousness!
I think that we will certainly keep trying out the Meal App. I think it will be another tool in my arsenal of living a healthy lifestyle (with little time on my hands). If you are interested in seeing more about my meal and shopping experience check out my "This Moment" at ThisMoment.com
Thanks #cBias and WalMart Meals Solution App
