The cost of produce and groceries continues to climb just as peak demand for fresh and GMO-free foods hit an all-time high.
We know the importance of eating healthy, but sometimes the way we currently look at food planning and budgets, (or our dining habits) is a hard thing to break away from. Planning a healthful meal on a budget isn’t always easy to do; fresh food for less can be a challenge.
Georgie’s Custom Catering wants to help with a “Fresh for Less”© meal planning campaign that leverages the seasonally abundant fresh produce and ingredients in a new recipe which will be provided for you each week.
For those of with families; especially families with small children, the news of what long-term consumption of some of our favorite treats and comfort foods can do to our bodies continues to rattle nerves and raise concerns as parents. Then, couple that with a concern of regular food recalls each year, or the concern of balancing a healthy diet for our children against those concerns of our household budgets and emergency needs, and it’s easy to see why we continue to navigate back to what we know… what we’re familiar with… and what’s easiest on our limited time and budgets.
In other words, we find ourselves having to choose between “Fresh food or Less food”.
Nonetheless, the message is still clear… for our children to succeed in life, both mentally and physically, and so they can achieve their highest potential in school, family, work and personal relationships, the answers always come back to our core health, and the way we nourish our bodies and minds. Balanced child nutrition is paramount, but this doesn’t stop with our children. Parents and other adults need to lead the way; set the example if you will.
We know change is not easy.
So, what if we were able to provide you a way to introduce healthy, yet tasty options to your household each week, and all without putting a dent in your budget (or, a minor adjustment that can be easily offset)? What if instead of asking “Fresh food or Less food” we could say without a second thought… “Fresh food for Less“, and change the way we think about food?
- Fresh food.
- Freshly prepared.
- Less processing.
- Less GMOs.
- Less pesticides.
- Less portions.
- Less money.
For some readers, you may find you even start to save a little money. When you start eating healthier and begin expanding and filling your pallet with flavor and heartiness of fresh; less processed food over other prepackaged options, you find a little goes a long way. This means, again, for some readers your portions will naturally reduce over time which will also aide in managing not only a healthier lifestyle, but a healthier food budget.
Sometimes, it’s just about finding the time to “come up with a recipe”, or time to “gather” those ingredients, and even “prepare” those ingredients. So, we want to introduce you to just one new dish a few times a month. A recipe that will leverage the seasonal abundance of one key ingredient at your local grocery store, farmer’s corner, or meat market. These are recipes that can feed anywhere from 4, 6, or 8 people… and will take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to fully prepare from start to finish… saving you time in the kitchen to keep on doing what you need to be doing. Living and loving time with family and friends.
Interested in participating? If so… just signup here: http://eepurl.com/bvpmLH. We’re currently gathering a number of great recipes together for you now and will start sending out one new one each week (or less) starting in August.
These email communications titled ” Fresh for Less” will be delivered to your inbox just once a week (or less), and deliver you a fresh new recipe leveraging seasonally available vegetables, fruit or meats abundant in the marketplace at that time, and will include an expected budget for your serving size.
