I’m excited to share a really great site with you today… Simplify Supper!
Krista is passionate about helping families have healthy, simple, tasty meals- Simplify Supper will simplify your life 🙂
AND who doesn’t need a little bit of that once-in-a-while! (or every day of our lives) I’m happy to introduce you to Krista and I’ll let her take it from here…
My name is Krista Numbers and my mission is simple- to relieve the stress that goes into meal planning so you can enjoy the time around the dinner table with your loved ones.
I had my first three children in 3 ½ years. Talk about survival mode! A trip to the grocery store was up there on the pain scale with natural childbirth. I tried to be organized. I would write out grocery lists just to leave them at home, lose them on my way to the store and oh, there was that time I went to get my infant out of the car and realized she had eaten half the list on the way. Not our finest moment.
I knew that family meal time was important for so many reasons. Healthier meals, less money than eating out and quality family time just to name a few. But how could I enjoy that quality time with the sick amount of stress I was feeling just trying to plan what to feed my crew and forgetting those needed ingredients at the store? I knew I wasn’t alone in my plight. Other moms (and dads) I knew who were also trying to make family meal time a reality had their own stories of insanity and frustration.
I figured there had to be a better way. Surely someone had created a resource for us peaceful family mealtime wannabes. I found a few sites with meal plans. They tell you what to make and when. That was helpful but not exactly what I had in mind. I wanted it to do the work for me but still allow me to tailor it to my family’s size, allergies, likes, etc. I also wanted an organized grocery list. Break it down by aisle in the grocery store so I can take one trip through I begged, just one trip! That’s all I can handle with kids in tow. Oh and give me coupons, lots of coupons that I can use anywhere. And while you’re at it I told my imaginary deliverer from meal time despair, keep it simple! Give me simple meals that don’t cost a lot or take a lot of time to prepare. I like to cook but let’s be real- my kids don’t do gourmet.
When I couldn’t find the resource I wanted, Simplify Supper became my next baby. I have since spent the last few years making that vision a reality for me and other busy homemakers to use as a resource. What an amazing and fun journey it has become. I have been amazed at the positive feedback from members who have joined the Simplify Supper family and I am so grateful it has been useful for so many people who share my same goal of making family mealtime a reality. My team and I are continuing to add new features all the time that save our members time, money and most important, sanity.
I am inviting you to join our family and share your feedback with me. You can try it out at www.simplifysupper.com.
Much love and happy eating!
That’s just SO great! I can’t wait to give it a try… even with as much as I love cooking, I could use some easy ideas to speed up my foodie life too 🙂
