For the second year in a row, Jason and I have set reading goals for the year. We have had fun setting the goal, figuring out how to read more, and having fun competing over those reading goals. So listen in today as Jason and I share our mid-year check up on our reading goals.

Make more time for reading with our favorite way to meal plan:
Please welcome our sponsor to today’s episode, Hello Fresh! They are a meal kit delivery service that delivers fresh and delicious ingredients to your door that you can make into meals in about 30 minutes or less.
When we got our first Hello Fresh box, honestly, I had no idea what to expect. I’ve been intrigued by these box meal kits in the past but with so many options, it felt a little overwhelming. So when I got the chance to try Hello Fresh, I jumped at the chance.
Well Jason and I both have been extremely happy with the box! It has been really fun to cook with Hello Fresh! Okay so how does it work? You get three meal options to choose from: Classic, Veggie, or Family. We got the family box and as a huge plus, all of our kids devoured the meals!!
Each of the meals comes packaged in it’s own bag with all the ingredients in the perfect portion for that recipe. So you literally just pull the bag out of the fridge for that recipe and everything is ready. I did not anticipate this being one of my very favorite things about the service. 30 minutes before dinner, I literally just pull out the bag, grab my full color recipe card, and take the items out.
I had no idea how much mental energy actually goes into planning my menu, shopping for each ingredient, and assembling it all…all before the cooking even begins. Plus, as a bonus, it had me cooking more involved recipes that I’ve felt like I had time for (even though they were only 30 minute recipes).
So you are getting delicious and nutritious meals delivered to your door for less than $10 a serving which is pretty amazing! Especially if you are in a rut of eating out a lot, this can be an incredible switch! AND if you go through my special link for todays episode, you can get $30 off your first box. I went in to test $30 off and it makes the box and the serving price an amazing offer!
So go to hellofresh.com/foundation30 and this is important, use coupon code Foundation30 at checkout to get $30 off your first box. If I hadn’t just got one, I would absolutely take this deal right now. It’s such a fun thing to try out!
