Real talk: Meal planning is work. Especially when you have no time (AKA you’re trying to resist succumbing to takeout), so you’re automatically defaulting to your go-to dishes night after night.
To save you from eating avocado toast for dinner for a fourth night in a row, healthy meal delivery service Purple Carrot is coming in clutch with some pizzazz for your weeknight noshes—by including recipes from The Well+Good Cookbook in each of its subscription boxes for the month of January.
That’s right, you can kick off the new year with flavor-loaded, all-star dishes from our healthy eating manual (all of which can be prepared in 30 minutes) without even having to trek to the grocery store.
The Well+Good Cookbook features meals that wellness luminaries actually eat IRL (so you know they’re busy-schedule friendly), and we partnered with Purple Carrot to bring you four standout, plant-based ones.
Here’s the lineup: quinoa veggie bowls by SkyTing Yoga founders Chloe Kernaghan and Krissy Jones, Jenné Claiborne’s coconut black bean stew, Candice Kumai’s famous pumpkin mac ‘n cheese, and tempeh tikka masala by author and food coach Rens Kroes. Hungry yet?
And if you’re wondering why the emphasis is on plants, it’s simple: Purple Carrot is on a mission to make eating plant-based meals—that are good for people and the planet—delicious and actually fun to cook.
First off, going plant-based can lower your risk of heart disease, according to a 2019 study, and it has been linked to lower blood pressure, too. Plus, considering it takes 47 times more water to produce a pound of beef vs. a pound of vegetable—and that eating just one less burger a week could save the equivalent of 320 miles of carbon emissions, according to Purple Carrot sources—it’s beneficial for the environment, to boot.
So if you were looking for a push to add Meatless Mondays (or Tuesdays or Wednesdays) onto your 2020 calendar, getting started with Purple Carrot’s healthy meal delivery is officially the easiest way to do it.
Sign up for either two or four servings per week (with the option to add on five-minute breakfasts or lunches to your box), and all the ingredients will be brought to your door with easy-to-follow instructions on how to turn them into satisfying meals. It’s your chance to instantly score goodness from The Well+Good Cookbook and do the environment a solid.
