Letting Food Be Easy

Letting Food Be Easy
Written by Emily Clausen for PeachDish

All the information you need to whip up a meal is a quick Google search away. Trouble is, very few of us have time to sift through dozens of recipes, and planning, shopping, and cooking take time we don’t always have. Between full-time jobs, families, and an increasing desire for balanced lifestyles (how many meditation apps have you tried?), time spent on food can be deeply enjoyable, but is not always feasible.

Convenience doesn’t have to be the enemy of good eating. There’s a substantial difference between peeling off a slice of processed cheese and having fresh ingredients delivered to your door. PeachDish, a meal kit service based in Atlanta, sources from sustainable farmers and artisans across the region. Southern chefs write the recipes and plan the week’s meals, and a nutritionist keeps the dishes healthy.

For Seth Freedman, PeachDish’s Culinary Director, that’s what sets his meal kit apart. “Our recipes are a reflection of the foods grown in and around Georgia, and the diverse people and cultures who call this area home,” he says. “We strive to offer Southern dishes that are full of flavor, use locally grown, seasonal ingredients, meet the needs of diverse eaters, and are a delight to cook.”

Freedman is part of a community that includes Southern chefs and food writers who are working toward this same goal. Like you, they’re astoundingly busy, but one thing is certain—these folks love talking about good food and how to get it on the table. Let them and PeachDish take the work out of dinner and free yourself up to take another shot at meditation.
