We’re taking sign-ups now for the Stretch app which makes it super easy to meal plan and save on organics.  Why? Because it’s the most practical way to reach the Stretch Recipes Vision.  In the meantime, we’ll tell you about THE PERKS!  :-)

The perks:

  • SAVE TIME. Time is money and with these recipes, you spend less than 30 minutes preparing a nutritious meal and the foods you love.  After a long day, this gives you more time to quickly head out with friends, read, check your instagram feed or watch your favorite TV show.
  • MORE VARIETY.  Order according to a single serving and add more dishes into your week without having to purchase too many groceries.
  • REDUCE WASTE. Variety is the spice of life, but most importantly, reducing food waste saves you money.  Don’t you hate it at the end of a week when you have all that left over produce that’s spoils!  Plus, our ability to reduce food waste helps improve the environment as we can reduce water waste and adjust for demand to prepare for a global population of 9 billion in 2050.  For more on the importance of this, check out our Vision and always tweet us @stretchrecipes for Q&A talks.
  • EAT ORGANIC.  When it’s available in Organic, that’s what you get.  Why?  Because we want you to have the best.  We also know that by purchasing more organics, we can drive the prices down creating the best prices for you.  We also believe that by purchasing organic, it drives the demand for these products allowing more opportunity for local farmers to get their products into stores as they help shorten the distance from farm to grocery store.  This creates a stronger local economy.
  • LESS FANCY.  Let’s face it, we’ll leave the perfectly seasoned 8 herbs and 20 spices to the Chefs and dining out.  These basic recipes aren’t seasoning and ingredient heavy to go easy on the cash and save you time while still tasting incredibly delicious.
  • ASSISTANCE WHEN NEEDED. Live google hangout or Skype with a cooking coach if there’s a recipe you’re worried you won’t get right.  This comes in really handy when you’re following a new recipe or concerned about cooking time.
  • EARN POINTS.  For each recipe you use to plan your meal, you earn 1-3 points.  The more nutritious the recipe, the more points you earn.  These points can be redeemed for travel, fashion, student loan payments, concert tickets, gift cards for restaurants, and more!  Check out the SAVE shop for more info and some of the awesome swag you can earn by meal planning and shopping with us.

Simply put, our mission is to empower everyone to eat better and save more.  By meal planning and buying these organics, you purchase what you need freshly every week will allow you to eat better at home, saving you money.  This not only helps to build a smarter, more sustainable planet, it helps you save time and energy.  Most importantly, you cook and that’s not only fun, but makes you officially grown and sexy.

We look forward to having you join us in living the Stretch Recipes lifestyle.  Eat better, Save more!
