The discovery of Blond Story
If you follow my Instagram account, you probably already know that last week I discovered the products of Urban Picnik. Indeed, during a busy day of filming, the guys of Alkalime Studios (our video crew), Catherine (our new intern), Sarah and I had the opportunity to test the 100% organic ready to eat salads – a concept developed in Québec by Urban Picnik.
Our impressions on this concept ?
1. The taste
All these salads are equally delicious. More importantly, they are perfectly balanced as the recipes have been created by Julie DesGroseilliers, nutritionist. As a result, we find a perfect mix of colorful vegetables, whole grains and plant proteins for healthy eating even on the go.
In addition, the #TeamBlondStory totally agreed on the fact that the glass jar content was REALLY fresh. The vegetables were crispy, the plant proteins well prepared and the sauces extremely tasty. Even if I had the jars in my possession for the past two days, the salads tasted exactly as if I had prepared them in the morning and placed them in jars until lunchtime in the fridge !
2. The concept
I must confess that we have not only loved the salads, but also been impressed by the whole concept. The idea of being able to get healthy meals, vegetarian / vegan, 100% organic and gluten free in reusable jars is absolutely great. All you have to do is clean them well and reuse them to prepare in advance breakfasts and lunches on the go. Be creative ! Store your cereals and grains in the pantry or simply insert a candle in the jar as a decoration.
3. The accessibility
We have finally been delighted by the accessibility of the products. These are offered between $8.99 and $9.49, which is excellent for a complete meal made with 100% organic healthy ingredients. Moreover, they are available in several points of sale like all Avril Supermarché Santé, La Moisson (in St-Thérèse), some Métro and pretty soon in all Rachelle-Bery.
It is precisely because perfection does not exist that I am giving to Urban Picnik 9/10 for their great products... I strongly recommend you to try them if you see some at the grocery !
