Cooking can be great. You spend some time in the kitchen, looking at a screen only when you need to know the next step of the recipe, zoning out as you chop onions and garlic, breathing in the delicious smells, feeling the rush of satisfaction that comes with accomplishing a goal. Really, it can be a zen-like experience.
Other times, you’ve had a long day at work. And you’re burnt out. And you’re hungry. And despite the recipe saying you’ve only got ten minutes of prep time and twenty minutes of cooking between you and a meal, you know the truth is, in your current state, it’s going to take you roughly fifteen minutes just to peel and cube a single potato.
In a case like this, you just need anything that’ll fill your stomach so you can deposit yourself on the couch feeling vaguely sated. In other words, you need some serious low-effort food.
Preferably, this low effort food will meet the following three qualifications:
- it won’t be super expensive (otherwise, just order something),
- it will be at least somewhat satisfying, and
- it won’t be total bullshit.
Simple enough, right? But it can be almost impossible to find anything that fulfills all three of these. Two? That’s easy. A big candy bar or a frozen pizza is indulgent and won’t cost you too much, but wow, there’s some garbage in those things. A bag of baby carrots and a little hummus on the other hand is cheap enough, and it’s healthy, but is it satisfying enough to be “dinner”? Then there are the dinners from your various upstart meal services and bougie grocery store frozen sections, but while these can be tasty and not too bad for you, the price isn’t so much cheaper than takeout.
In other words, you’re destined to be disappointed. Unless you get this stuff. It’s loaded with vitamins from broccoli, kale, spirulina, strawberries, and the like, and each serving packs a mighty 20 grams of plant-based protein from pea, hemp, sacha inchi, and flax. You also get some good fiber, some omega 3s, antioxidants, all that good stuff. So, it’s healthy. But it also tastes pretty good, at least according to Amazon reviews. (We like the suggestion from one reviewer to blend it up with a banana. Friggin’ yum.)
Long story short: healthy enough and satisfying enough. Check and check.
Usually, sort of. As in, at the standard price, it’ll run you $1.57 per serving. But at our price today, it comes out to only about 50 cents per serving. AKA cheap as all hell.
So get some. You might not be a protein shake kind of person, but we’re willing to bet you’re an occasional just-need-something-tasty-to-fill-me-up kind of person.
