This Week In The Model Meals Kitchen

Posted by Kylie Hodges on

As we roll into the Thanksgiving holiday, we have so much to be thankful for and it just isn't possible to list every single wonderful thing.
But the most important thing we are grateful for is you!
To all of our customers, team members, and anyone who has contributed to making Danika's vision of Model Meals come true, we are so grateful for you!
Model Meals simply wouldn't be what it is today without you. Thank you for being a part of the Model Meals family.

Tis the season to get back in your kitchen!
I can't believe I'm saying this, but Thanksgiving is next week. And whether you like it or not, you're probably going to be dining with some folks you may or may not be related to.
Are you a daring soul who is undergoing a Whole30 for the month of November? Or are you just maintaining a clean lifestyle into the holidays?
Well, then 1 - I am proud of you. 2 - Try to maintain composure when your mother-in-law gives you a hard time for not eating that sweet potato casserole smothered in marshmallows. 3 - Let us help you, and show everyone how delicious and nutritious Whole 30 holidays can be.  We are currently offering holiday side dishes in addition to our weekly menu. Our mashed yams with pecan crumble will make your mother-in-law eat her words. Literally.

At Model Meals, we take modeling how to live and eat cleaner pretty seriously. Our kitchen team loves swapping recipes, sharing any deals they found at the local market, and arguing over which Model Meal is the best meal (the real answer is ALL of them!) But did you know we share our recipes on our website? If you're ever craving Garlic Shrimp + Romesco Sauce on Zoodles during a week that it isn't on our menu, you can pop on over to ModelMeals.com and take a crack at it in your kitchen at home. And if you do, share on social media and tag us! Your post just might make it into our weekly newsletter that arrives in your inbox every Thursday.

This Week In The Model Meals Kitchen

Happy Halloween! I hope you had a great week. What did trick-or-treating look like for your family this year? My Halloween was spent with friends in costume, and I opted out of the indulgent candy snacking, which is a huge change for me from years past. Don't beat yourself up if you snuck a piece of candy or two this year - always remember that Model Meals is here for those days when you need a little extra help getting clean, nutritious meals in front of you. Plus, less time cooking means more time for bingeing season 2 of "Stranger Things". Now that is a win-win in my opinion!

Can we talk about all of the beautiful colorful ingredients in your meals this week? This is why I am so bananas (pun intended) about cleaning up my diet. Never have my meals or my refrigerator looked so gorgeous! One of the (many) exciting things about eating Whole30 compliant is getting acquainted with produce you may have never batted an eye at before. It's kind of like dating. Eating processed foods was all fun and games until it made me feel like garbage after I had it; it just took me a minute to discover the loyal sweet potato was gonna treat me right every time. Better late than never, right? Let's talk produce: what was one ingredient in your meals this week that you were loving and it took you by surprise?
