Weeknight Convenience with Marley Spoon!

Those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I love to bake and cook.

If you follow me, you also know that I recently left my flexible, but also all over the place, schedule as a freelance writer and print model behind to join the 9-5(ish) world as a children's entertainment writer. I love my job!

But that doesn't mean that adjusting to the new, structured schedule didn't require a little work. While I no longer have to be up at 5am on shoot or writing until 2am to meet a deadline, I also don't have time to pop out in the afternoon for a grocery run or precook part of an elaborate dinner when the mood strikes me.

But home cooked dinners are not only fun to make, they're also generally more nutritious than eating out and that's important to stay healthy and happy!


Luckily, there's a middle ground between the time-effective but less nutritious option of eating out and the healthy but time-consuming process of grocery shopping, recipe finding, prepping, and cooking your own dinner. It's called Marley Spoon!
Marley Spoon is a subscription service that drastically cuts down on the time that making home cooked dinners takes, making them an accessible option for weekday nights. Eating in doesn't have to be just for the weekends!



With Marley Spoon, you get a weekly delivery of pre-measured ingredients for pre-selected healthy and delicious meals that are quick and easy to make, but still flavorful and nutritious. There are several meal options per week, so you can just choose the meals that you like. There are vegetarian options, pescatarian options, and omnivore options. They change each week so you'll never get bored!



And the recipes themselves are definitely not boring. I opted to try making the Cumin Spiced Lamb Noodles with Spinach and Lime and the Sticky Glazed Salmon with Ginger Corn and Broccoli.

Both recipes were straightforward and took just under 30 minutes from start to finish, making them perfect for a quick after-work dinner.


But they were both a lot more exciting and a lot healthier than turning to ramen noodles or a basic pasta dish for convenience!

Because the Marley Spoon chefs work so hard to develop recipes that are health, easy, and flavorful, you don't have to choose just two out of the three. You can have them all!

With subscription options starting at just $8.90 per serving and customization that allows you to cook for anywhere from two to eight people per meal, it's cheaper than eating out!

Personally, I also really like that you can cook up for eight people and order a box with as little as one meal (for eight). With the holidays just around the bend, that makes Marley Spoon not only a great option for your usual weeknight dinner cooking, but also to simplify holiday hosting. I can't imagine anything more helpful for hosting a hassle-free dinner party!
