New Year, New Me With Tempo
Each year, as the clock struck midnight on New Year's Eve, I made those familiar resolutions again — sleep 8 hours a night, eat healthy, get back on the treadmill, and break up with my DoorDash delivery guy. But life kept getting in the way and they’d fall by the wayside.
Like most people, come February I’d return to my old ways. I’m doom scrolling at 3am, the DoorDash dude is putting his kid through college on my tips alone, and my gym membership card is nowhere to be found. So this year I’m determined to stick to just one goal this year — eating better.
But picture this: a bare bones kitchen that's mainly used as a storage solution — don’t look in the oven, it’s jammed with sneakers. This is not somewhere I can cook, even if I knew how.
I was just about to give up when my neighbor Samantha suggested I try Tempo, a brand new meal solution that delivers chef-designed, ready-to-heat, time-saver meals right to your door — perfect for those busy days.
Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical. I've had my fair share of disappointing experiences with meal kit services — the rotten produce, erratic delivery, the wrong meal choice, I could go on but I won’t.
Samantha was raving about how Tempo offers 20 delicious, nutrient-rich meals each week. Tempo’s seasoned chefs create quality meals that are fully prepared with fresh ingredients and contain 30+ grams of protein. This sounded promising, so I submitted an order.
Their menu has a range of tasty recipes, like Creamy Tomato Whole Wheat Penne with kale and roasted tomatoes. And I can choose the number of meals that suit my week. If I need to skip weeks or update my plan, I can do that easy-peasy. Tempo is so customizable that way.
As soon as my Tempo Box arrived, I dove right in. I was thrilled by how easy their dishes are to prepare, ready in only 4 minutes! I just have to pop them in the microwave for 3 minutes, let them rest for 1, and voilà — one unforgettable, balanced meal. Plus, they really help me with portion control — 600 calories per serving — the perfect solution to help me reach my fitness goals sooner.
And before you ask…no, Tempo isn't expensive. With meals starting at only $10.98,they’re suitable for any budget. They’re way cheaper than the grocery store. My DoorDash guy is in the rearview mirror.
And their meals taste heavenly! I can’t get enough of the Pesto Chicken with roasted tomatoes and parmesan cauliflower grits. But my favorite has to be Spicy Korean-Style BBQ Beef with roasted peppers and carrots — it’s mouthwatering and has just the right amount of spice.
Since subscribing to Tempo, my eating habits have improved tremendously. Their flavorful protein-packed, nutrient-rich meals help support my new healthy lifestyle. So I’m confident that I’ll reach my New Year’s resolution this year. Not to mention, I’m saving so much time and money!
If “better eating habits” is on your New Year’s list, Tempo is a terrific place to start slaying that resolution.
