I thought food delivery services were meant for people that didn’t know how to cook or were just too lazy. My Mom’s a chef and I love to cook, so I didn’t think a food delivery service was for me.
If you’ve been following me, then you know my Dad is battling cancer, so eating well and taking time to make sure I’m eating nutritious foods has been really hard to do. I have food allergies too, so finding readily available foods that are gluten-free, dairy free, and soy free isn’t easy. Plus making sure my fridge is stocked with foods I can eat and prepping foods has been overwhelming. While randomly scrolling IG I saw a sponsored ad for THISTLE – a plant based food delivery service – and I was intrigued.
My Mom and Brother have used other food delivery services and it never looked as appetizing, but THISTLE’s food service did. I also liked that this wasn’t a diet service. When I found out about my food allergies/sensitivities I learned eating more plant based really helped. So, this was the first time I discovered a food delivery service that focuses on making nutritious plant based foods convenient and accessible, but also a delivery services that pays attention to food sensitivities and sustainability. Their food is sourced from local farms and their packaging is either reusable, recyclable, or compostable.
I’m excited to share I partnered up with THISTLE the entire month of July!! I’ve been receiving meals Monday thru Friday (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and it has been such a treat! The meals are delicious and remind me of meals from some of my favorite LA restaurants. What’s really important to me is that THISTLE’s service is customizable. All of my food is free of gluten, soy, eggs, chicken, and dairy – my food allergies. You can customize your order, so not everything is vegan or soy free, but if you have allergies like mine, then you don’t need to worry. You can add chicken or eggs to your meals, but since I’m allergic, I opt for Turkey and Pork when available. I LOVE that I don’t have to worry about what I’m eating anymore. Your meals get delivered to your front porch between 1am-3am, so there’s no excuse to miss a meal. When I’m hungry I just head to the fridge and grab a meal. It’s especially convenient when I’m headed to the hospital with my Dad. I don’t have to Ubereats food, eat lousy tuna salads from the hospital cafe, or protein bars from Starbucks anymore.
After almost a month of eating Thistle I’m amazed by how energized I am. I’m going through one of the most stressful experiences of my life and I don’t have to worry about what I eat. One of the biggest reactions when eating foods I have an allergy to is inflamed cystic acne and right now my skin is so clear too! I feel so nourished. Also, you don’t have to order 3 meals a day everyday. You can pick and choose what type of meal you’d like to have. Maybe you prefer having breakfast readily available, lunch or just dinner – it’s completely up to you. So, if you’re interested be sure to use my Promo code for 25% off your first week!!
