Family Meals Made Easy with Fare Meals

This is a sponsored post. Thank you for supporting SITC.

Family meals are a great way to bond as a unit. From helping to prepare the food to just sitting around the table and talking over dinner, family meals have a big impact on unity. They also have a big impact on health. Studies have shown that when families cook and eat together, they’re more likely to make healthier decisions, and their children are more likely to try new things. During the past few months, I’ve realized this more than ever. Before Covid-19 hit our country, I would say our family sat down altogether for a family meal, maybe three times a week. Now its been every single day, and I can see the difference it makes, and I know now that even when things do go back to semi-normal, this is one tradition I plan to keep moving forward.

Fare Meals by Arielle was already in the works before Covid-19 hit our country, but after seeing the socio-economic impact it had on everyone, founder, Arielle, decided to fast track her business plans and provide free resources and tools to help families make and serve meals that are more affordable, healthier, and easier to make. While the pandemic has changed a lot about the daily lives of families, what it hasn’t changed is that they want to feed their families healthy and affordable meals.

Fare Meals mission is to help people prepare family meals that fit within their life and budget, allowing them to continue to create nutritious meals while keeping their tastebuds and pocketbooks into account.

Fare Meals is an interactive healthy meal preparation resource for families designed to help them prepare and eat healthier meals while giving them an easy to understand estimate of cost and prep time. Using this format, Fare Meals allows families to meal plan and prep more easily, explore new recipes, and encourage children to try both new dishes and new ingredients.

The entire premise of Fare Meals and the delicious family meals that the site provides is based on three pillars, which dietitian and creator, Arielle, has made the basis of her approach to meal planning as a dietician. These pillars are affordability, health, and easy. Over her years as a dietician, Arielle has developed a community-based approach to her meal planning and resources. Using this approach, she makes it easy for even the most rushed families to create family meals that are delicious and healthy, even when time and resources are limited.

All recipes range in cost from $4.00 to $25.00, depending on the ingredients, and they serve up to five people. The number of $ signs represents how much the recipe will cost. It’s a nice way to quickly decide on recipes based on cost.

For those who don’t love to cook or who want to get their kids involved in the cooking, the spatula rating system is key. Recipe difficulty is rated from on to three spatulas with one being the easiest, and three being the most involved. One spatula means a time of five to ten minutes. Two spatulas is eleven to sixteen minutes. Finally, three spatulas is anything longer than sixteen minutes. This makes it easy to decide just how much work you want to put into your recipe or if it’s a good fit for helping get the kids cooking.

If you’ve been wanting to prepare family meals that are healthy, delicious, and affordable but weren’t sure how, I encourage you to visit Fare Meals is an interactive healthy meal preparation. This resource makes it so easy to choose the perfect family meals for your family. It’s already saved me a ton of time, money, and frustration, and I think it can do the same for you.

Excited to announce that from May 28 to June 4, for every new follow to @faremeals on Instagram Fare Meals by Arielle will donate $5 to City Harvest in NYC.  City Harvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization and will rescue 81 million pounds of food this year and deliver it, free of charge, to hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens and other community partners across the five boroughs. It is no secret that COVID-19 has changed the world.  What hasn’t changed is the need and desire people have to feed their families good healthy food that they can afford, that is easy to prepare and time efficient.

    Yes the lock down has had its benefits. Families are gelling together. New dishes are being tried. Children in the family are getting involved with parents and contributing towards cooking meals. And this company Fare Meals seems to have touched the chords so well.
