The Bottom Line: Why I love cooking with Purple Carrot’s plant-based meal kits and Brightland Olive Oils
After a year of cooking most of our meals at home, it can be unbelievably difficult to find the inspiration and motivation to try new things, get creative, and make nourishing foods. I have over 300 recipes saved to a board on Pinterest, yet rarely make the effort to plan ahead, buy the right groceries and actually try them! But the week I made my plant-based meals from Purple Carrot, I felt like a new woman — and that’s not an exaggeration.
From Sprouted Broccoli Salad to Peanut Noodles with Tofu and Amaranth Chocolate Porridge, I was eating meals that were even better than what I might get for takeout, but right at home and with the added satisfaction that I’d made each plate myself. It almost turned into a daily self care activity!
Elevated even further with Brightland Alive and Awake Olive Oils, my Purple Carrot meals were satisfying and absolutely delicious. I even managed to impress my boyfriend, who rarely eats anything without meat but absolutely loved every meal we tried. Both Brightland olive oils are flavorful, creamy, and super high quality — you can just taste it. I also love that they’re made right here in California, where we live, without any preservatives or fillers, and with a focus on wellbeing. Ultimately, Brightland made our meals feel extra special.
