hello! with school coming up i decided to make a post to help you make fast and healthy breakfasts for when you’re rushing in the morning. breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it’s crucial for you to eat something before school, especially since you’re going to be using your brain a lot. recipes linked in the title!

1. nut butter, banana, and chia seed toast

really quick meal that i have in the morning that’s packed with vitamins and minerals! it’s not only healthy but very delicious. (note: it says sun butter but i use either cookie butter or peanut butter.)

2. berry and yogurt smoothie

fast and easy smoothie that can be made very easily! blend any frozen fruit with greek yogurt and any liquid (milk/juice works great). freeze overnight and thaw.

3. warm fruit bowl

bake a berry blend in the oven and add a cup of milk. dark chocolate can be added on top optionally. :)

4. blueberry overnight oats

if you’re lazy like me, this is a great recipe for you. combine oats, chia seeds, vanilla, blueberries, milk and yogurt in a sealed container. by the next morning it should be done. 

5. parfait

these are really easy to make! i’d just look up a parfait recipe; there are a lot of good ones on the internet! 

sorry this was a v quick post. i hope you found some stuff you can make!! another list of recipes here. (all recipes found via greatist.)

Shredded chicken breast with chopped celery, green onion, cilantro, an avocado, LOOOTS OF LIME juice, salt n pepp, 1 tablespoon of safflower mayo, and 1 tablespoon of homemade white bean hummus. Chilled in fridge for 20 mins, then served in a sprouted grain gluten free tortilla. This recipe was SO GOOD, and i really just kind of winged the recipe! You can’t go wrong! :)

How Do You Make 5,000 Meals From Food Waste?
At Feeding the 5000, volunteers make a meal for thousands of people out of food that would have been thrown away.

Each of these people here, they are all going to go and take a meal. And what I can guarantee is that each one is going to say, ‘Wow, that’s a delicious meal. Why would anyone have wasted that food?’ — Tristram Stuart, founder, FeedbackAll of these events, or events in general… a lot goes into them to make them look like nothing goes into them. — Mike Curtain, CEO, D.C.

New Services From the Creators of Blue Apron: 

Hello, loyal customer!

We trust you’re enjoying the fresh ingredients and recipes from Blue Apron. We also hope you’ll tell your friends that for only slightly more money than it costs to have a restaurant put all the ingredients of a meal together and cook it for you, you can receive all the parts of a meal along with easy-to-follow instructions, and cook it yourself! We deliver organic ingredients from sustainable farms right to your door. It’s nearly as convenient and environmentally-conscious as ordering from Seamless, and it only takes twice the time!

Today, we’re proud to announce a few other services you might like if you enjoy Blue Apron:

Random Package: Shopping for yourself can be tedious, even when you only do it online. You need new clothes, you need groceries, you need soap. What if all of that came to you with the push of a button? Random Package sends you a box each month with any items we think you might like. One month, a jar of peanut butter, some socks, and bungie cords. The next month, cat food, an Amazon Kindle, and various seeds for starting your own garden. Any items you don’t want, you put back in the box and carry to your local UPS pickup location, and you’ll be reimbursed in 3-5 weeks. Simple as that!

Model Home Gym: Look like a model after using Model Home Gym! It looks like a real home gym, but it’s actually a heavy model of a gym that you assemble and take apart once a day. It’s scientifically proven to help you burn more calories than a regular home gym that you only put together once.

Pageturner: Tired of boring old books but wish you read more? Why isn’t there a digestible version of the novel for the digital age? Pageturner will email you a single sentence of The Girl of the Train every morning for 6 years. Now you can savor the book at a leisurely pace, and let the suspense mount even more while waiting for the next installment.

Organic Bath: Ever wonder why people bathed so infrequently before indoor plumbing? It wasn’t bad hygiene. It’s because they were soaking in clean water that hadn’t been sent through old, rusty pipes! Organic Bath sends you a divining rod, a shovel, and four of our reusable green plastic jugs (that you can return to any of our 4 locations in New Jersey). Dig your own well, then conveniently fill your own tub with our water, and let your skin feel the difference!

Film School: Did you know the average American spends a total of $32,000 on movie tickets and rentals in a lifetime? That just happens to be slightly more than a year’s tuition at the New York Film Academy! If you give us that exact amount, not only will our staff handpick a prime studio apartment in Manhattan, but we will send a budding screenwriter to live with you and work on the next big indie drama to direct. If you don’t like the movie, whose fault is that, really?

Walk My Dog: Ever want to be around a dog but don’t want to own one? You can come to our Manhattan office between the hours of 1-3 PM and walk our CEO Matt Salzburg’s dog for free! Juniper is a 4-year-old Border Collie that loves meeting new people! Walk My Dog lets you feel like you own a pet without all the extra responsibilities. And playing with Juniper is optional! Just make sure she poops and pees. Thanks.

We hope you’ll try some of these exciting new services from Blue Apron, and that you continue to enjoy snow peas in literally every meal we send.

Sincerely,
Your friends at Blue Apron
