This past week reality hit me like a ton of bricks, as I eased back into my work-life. We enjoyed a magical stay in Honolulu, Hawaii over the break and through the New Year, happily soaking up all the Vitamin D we could, before heading back to the Vancouver cold, dark & rain.
That’s why I’m especially proud and excited to announce my partnership with Happy Planet! Trying to juggle a full-time career, manage my business and plan my wedding leaves me virtually no time in the kitchen (although this IS one of my resolutions’ this year!) so it couldn’t have been more appreciated when Happy Planet contacted me to try out their fresh soups – knowing full well that they would fit perfectly (& happily) into my busy lifestyle.
Happy Planet has a line of 13 all-natural fresh soups that have become my go-to for cold, rainy, miserable winter days in Vancouver. The re-sealable, recyclable, BPA free packaging fits easily and conveniently in my purse to take to the office, simply pours into a bowl & heat as needed and you’ve got a hearty, delicious, healthy lunch for any day of the week.
All Happy Planet fresh soups are made from premium, all-natural ingredients with ABSOLUTELY ZERO preservatives or artificial ingredients – if you can’t pronounce it, it didn’t make it into the package. Happy Planet works with their suppliers to source the best local ingredients (whenever possible) from both organic and natural sources. AND they have 10 fresh soups that are gluten free. A packaged good I can finally feel good about buying!
