AND THE FOOD IS REALLY GOOD!
In addition to the two meals and snack balls that I've made from this week's order, I dug through their recipe archive and made the Cookie Dough Hummus. Sweet mama neptune! (<- as my nephew says) Seriously, though, that hummus is INCREDIBLE. I modified a tiny bit based on what I had available at home so I used Almond Butter instead of Peanut Butter, a sprinkle of sugar in place of the stevia, and I added a little drop of vanilla extract (to add a little extra touch to that cookie dough flavor). Now I love hummus normally, but this brings it to a whole new level. And it doesn't feel like eating hummus so it helped with a bit of my current "Eh, hummus again?" disappointment. (Sometimes I eat it far too often for my own good even though I love it)
THE BEST PART?
They are not expensive to begin with and they seem to like discounts! You really can't beat affordable, convenient, and healthy. Oh, and the portions are filling, the recipes usually make 4 servings, plus the items they send are great quality.
GO CHECK THEM OUT!
I am thoroughly impressed by The Purple Carrot. Planning on ordering from them on a semi-regular or regular basis to either cover a couple dinners through the week or to have a couple of meals to make in advance and use as a week's worth of lunches and easy to heat up dinners on busy nights. Check out their site and like them on Facebook while you're at it!
DON'T FORGET TO BE KIND.
While my story about the purple dog technically didn't have anything directly to do with The Purple Carrot review, it does bring to mind that children can, and should, learn compassion young so as to carry it through their lives. The Purple Carrot does provide an easy, convenient, and delicious way to bring more plant-based meals into your life so that you can eat healthier, and live in kindness while showing compassion for agriculture animals (and you'll make a positive impact on the environment). (Did you know producing just 1 lb. of beef requires about 1,800 gallons of water?! - Check out breakdowns of water use from National Geographic)
The Purple Carrot is solid! Check them out!
