How to Blue Apron Your Life in 10 Ways

Originally posted on How To Get Things Done in 10 Ways:
Okay, another lazy factor in my life. I hate grocery shopping, so I do the online shopping and then I drive to the store and they bring it out to my car. I hate cooking because I never have any ingredients to try new recipes. But behold, Blue Apron stumbled into my lazy life. I had heard of this awhile ago, but I could never quite commit to giving it a shot. I’ve also been comparing the other companies that do the same type of business, but then I saw Blue Apron on Groupon. A discounted price to try something that had intrigued me for so long?! I immediately purchased that one! 1. So simple to order You literally just put what kinds of meats you want, and yes, they have vegetarian options too! And then you pick your delivery day and then BOOM you’re done and now you just wait for the amazingness to arrive. They also have an app so you can check…

Sweet potato and black bean chili

In my opinion,  Chili is an essential recipe during the winter.This hearty vegetarian chili includes sweet potato and black beans along with flavourful seasoning such as cumin, cinnamon and chili powder.  This chili is bursting with flavour and is my favorite chili recipe at the moment. This chili is the perfect healthy weeknight meal. You can even make it and take it with you for lunch,  I am sure you will make everyone jealous!

It’s that time of year. Your Christmas tree is probably up, most of the Thanksgiving leftovers have been eaten through, and possibly, there’s a little bit of snow on the ground. For me, two of those things are true,?still no snow days for me yet! But even if none of those things are true, you cannot go wrong with chili. If I thought my last time in the kitchen was bad, then this time is in a category all it’s own. I have to admit, getting the hang of cooking is much harder than it looks! Getting all the right ingredients, preparing the food successfully, everything running smoothly, at the same/correct time, and then coming out deliciously? Much harder said then done. But, I learn something new every time. This time around I found out just how important it is to have simple recipes when you don’t cook often. One reason is, you will waste a ton of money on random ingredients that will end up going bad before you…

Summer is arriving in Cape Town (yeahyeahyeaaah!) and I couldn’t be happier. I am done with rainy, grey days and cold weather. Take away my pale, untanned skin and cold hands! Give me all of the sun, clear blue skies, beaches and ice cream! I pulled this recipe together in anticipation of the soon-to-be sunny, hotter weather. It’s a super easy recipe, only takes 5 minutes to make and BEST of all, it’s on the healthy side. Made with beautiful tarte berries and a little bit of açaí (ahh-sah-ee) powder for a rich, dark chocolatey flavour.
