Using Youfoodz To Survive The First Few Weeks of Parenthood with Minimal Cooking

Being a first-time mum is life changing – literally. Not only do you become responsible for keeping a teeny tiny miniature version of yourself (or your partner) alive, but any routine you had goes out the window. To add to the laundry list (note: you will literally have more laundry to do) your existing responsibilities don’t magically fade away upon the arrival of your mini-me. For example, unless you have a personal chef on hand, you will still have some level of responsibility to ensure the rest of your family gets fed.

So how did I personally survive my first year of Delta Force training? (I mean parenthood). Enter YouFoodz.

YouFoodz offer a variety of ready-to-eat, fresh meals delivered to your door. Why do I love them? The thought of doing a grocery run in my zombified state, prepping, cooking and cleaning was the furthest thing from my mind, especially in the first few weeks of becoming a mum. Youfoodz saved me time and energy (mentally because I didn’t have to think about what to cook, and physically because like I’ve mentioned – no cooking or cleaning).

Convenience factor aside, there’s a large variety of meals on offer which can cover your nutrient needs if you select meals that include a good balance of vegetables, proteins and wholegrain carbohydrates. If you want them to make the decision-making process easier for you, then you can simply select from 1 of 3 meal plans – Weight loss, clean eating or muscle gain.

Most importantly, the meals taste GOOD. You can choose from lunch & dinner options as well as breakfast, snacks and drinks.  Youfoodz have also created a nifty little app, so if you’re literally stuck under a sleeping baby with no end in sight, fear not! You can order straight from your phone with the option to reorder your favourites within a matter of seconds.

As most first-time parents will know, there will be days where you might be able to squeeze in a decent, uninterrupted meal and some days where you’ll be lucky to shower. One thing is for certain though.  Having fresh, pre-packaged meals that require zero prep time in your fridge can be a lifesaver.  Especially in those first few blurry weeks where you’re so busy looking after your baby that you forget to look after yourself.
