Blue Apron

As many of you know from reading here at Chic + Shimmer, I have my BS in Dietetics. As a marketing manager for a local magazine, I don't get to utilize my nutrition knowledge in that. That's yet another reason why I love having my own little creative corner here at Chic + Shimmer - to bring you wonderful nutrition tips like Blue Apron!

I recently started my first week of Blue Apron and my, oh, my do I love it! I'm pretty sure my face was the epitome of the heart eye emoji when I opened the box. It was overflowing with greens, spices and all things nice for cooking! 

The dish that you see above was brown butter and chestnut gnocchi. Just take a minute and let that marinate because yes - it was as good as it sounds. One of my friends and I popped a bottle of champagne and had such a great time preparing everything! What's not to love when there's brown butter and pasta involved, ya know?!

With Blue Apron, you can sign up for either a two person plan or a family plan. I opted for the two person plan which normally runs for $59 per week. Not bad if you think about all the grocery shopping you can avoid. I mean it's delivered directly to your door. That's a working girls heaven if you ask me. If you live alone, this can create six meals per week for you. Such a great deal! 

If you have food allergies, don't worry for a minute as you can factor that in as you set up your account. Thankfully I don't have any so I was able to get a wide variety of meals for the week. 

Not sure if this is for you? Not to worry! I have a free week trial for you all below. Make sure to let me know what you think! I'd love to hear :)

I hope you're enjoying these last few days of 2016. Can you believe it's almost over?!
