New Momscape Giveaway: Annual Membership to The Fresh 20 Meal Planning Service

Lately, I’ve been talking to a lot of moms who say they have hit a wall when it comes to what to feed the family each night. It seems quite a few of us are on a 2- or 3-week cycle of dinners because it’s hard to find meals that fit 3 important criteria. Optimally, those family dinners will be:

1. Quick to prepare.

2. Agreeable to at least a majority of the people sitting at the table with you (otherwise, what’s the point?)

3. Healthy and made with primarily fresh ingredients.

So I was thrilled when The Fresh 20 meal planning service approached me to say they wanted to give an entire year’s membership to one of you Momscapers!

This service does all the planning and thinking for you. I’ve just reviewed one of the weekly meal plans, and it’s got 5 savory dishes, such as braised flank steak with garlic mashed potatoes and pan roasted broccoli, or how about Mirepoix scallops and quinoa?

Subscribers to The Fresh 20 receive a weekly email with everything you need, including:

* A week’s menu of five dinnertime meals, along with detailed recipes and quick tips to help make the cooking easier and more enjoyable.

* A well-organized list for you to take to the store with all the ingredients you’ll need for the week’s meals.

What sets this meal planning service apart is that the meals center on fresh ingredients. These plans use only 20 fresh ingredients per week to make 5 weeknight dinners, and quality is a priority, so you won’t find any canned soup or frozen foods, nothing processed, and no preservatives. And it’s budget friendly. The average cost of dinner for four is $14, and each meal plan comes with a corresponding cost estimate.
