Emma's Food Bag

I should mention right now that this is not a sponsored post. I'm writing about this because I'm excited about this.

OKAY YOU GUYS. I'm stoked. I just received my Emma's Food Bag delivery and it's pretty exciting stuff.

What's Emma's Food Bag, you say? Well, let me tell you. It's a week's worth of recipes and local ingredients delivered right to your door. You view the menu and pick which bag is right for you, order, and then wait for the groceries to show up at your door! I never realized how exciting it is to receive your groceries at your front door. IT'S AWESOME.

I found a deal through TreatMe Waikato and thought I would give it a go. So aside from the discount, here's why I'm excited about it:

  • We get to try new things. WIN! I get a little bored of our regular routine. This is a great way to switch things up a little and try things I normally wouldn't cook! EXCITING.
  • Planned recipes. This means I don't have to dedicate much brains to organizing dinners this week. My recipes and ingredients are all ready to go. Super win.
  • Delivered groceries. I love my beautiful wee babes but sometimes going to the grocery store with two little ones feels like it's in the too-hard-basket.

  • -I don't have any control over what's in the foodbag. Not that big of a deal, but there it is. As much as I hate meal planning sometimes, I also enjoy meal planning. I'm a confusing person.
  • -I don't get to go grocery shopping. As much as grocery shopping is stress inducing, it also means I get out of the house.

So, let's get to the details.

We ordered the Couple's Bag which is enough for 2 people for 5 meals.

  1. wow talia! looks like an adventurous week! i havn't even heard most of those dishes let alone tasted, but looks yum. the calamari looked delish tonight :) go you x

  2. I'm with you on the love/hate relationship with meal planning, it's so easy to leave it to the last minute and fall into a food rut! This sounds like a great idea although I think I'd want to mix it up with weeks where I plan my own meals - I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes for you :)


I love and appreciate your comments and I try to respond to as many as I can so don't forget to check back! xoxo
