I feel like it’s safe to assume that most of us consider ourselves “busy” people. We’ve got jobs to go to, workouts to attend, and social lives to maintain so for the most part not many of us are doing a ton of sitting around. Factoring in meals throughout the day is a piece of cake for some, but for me, anything outside of dinner (my favorite meal) is like taking a ride on the struggle bus. I actually have to admit that during the week I really don’t exactly loooove lunch and usually I don’t even bother with breakfast. (Coffee yes breakfast no.) Lunch M – F while I’m at my computer working is kind of a pain in the butt; I’m usually right in the middle of something, there’s never anything in my fridge to eat, and going out to get something will cost me time and money that I’d prefer not to part with. Most of the time I end up cooking eggs because it requires the least amount of ingredients and effort, or I have a protein drink like I’m 80 drinking an Ensure. You’re so sad for me, I get it I was sad for me too, but I have just discovered the perfect remedy for us busy non-cooking types. Allow me to introduce you to Thistle.
Thistle is one of those discoveries that I didn’t realize I’d wanted/needed in my life until it was actually created. Thistle originally started in the San Francisco Bay Area, but with the success of their healthy meal delivery plans they’ve recently expanded south to Los Angeles! The whole idea behind Thistle is to offer/deliver nutritionist-designed meals straight to peoples homes for less than the price of eating a meal out. Every week their chefs create new menus (all gluten and dairy free) that are made with the highest quality ingredients and superfoods. You can choose between 3, 4, or 5 days worth of food and you can choose to have just one type of meal covered (like just lunches), you can choose two, you can add snacks, or you can have them all! Don’t let the subscription component scare you; you can skip any week or cancel at any time with no commitment.
I tried everything Thistle had to offer for two days and could not report back a more pleasant experience overall. I love that all I had to do was grab a meal out of the fridge and eat it, especially those pesky breakfasts and lunches, and I love that I knew I was eating something delicious AND nutritious. If and when you give Thistle a go, do not skip the juices, they are all so tasty they could have been desserts. Thistle is all about “putting your diet on autopilot” so you can start feeling amazing without having to sweat the big stuff like what the hell you should eat and when the hell you should make it. Convenience is king and Thistle has busybodies and lunch haters like myself completely covered!
Now that you’re all like, “daaang, I really want to try that…”, Thistle and I would like to extend a bonus little treat just for you: use the code “LOVELOATHING” to get 20% off your first order!
