Marpé + Instacart: Your grocery shopping just got a whole lot easier!

In our go-go-go culture with jam-packed schedules, convenience really is everything. Since you are reading this, my guess is you prioritize cooking healthy meals at home like I do. But as with most American families, it is likely a struggle to make this happen. Our mission at Marpé is to simplify this process for you with services that save you time and effort. And we are always looking for new and better ways to do just that. Recently, we stumbled upon a nifty little grocery delivery service called Instacart that is sure to make your life a whole lot easier and has definitely made our offering a whole lot better.

Meal Planning with Marpé

Our theory is that most families want and can manage to eat at home at least Monday through Thursday. Weekends, on the other hand, are usually a lot less predictable. So for the past three years, we created meal plans with this in mind. In an effort to minimize waste, our meal planning service simply included the recipes and grocery list, in mobile and printable form, for four dinner recipes per week with two weeks shown at a time.

Enter Instacart.

One day when I was desperate to fill my pantry but strapped for time, I went on to Whole Food’s website and ordered my groceries. I was pleasantly surprised when the service, fulfilled by a company called Instacart, was quick, inexpensive, and super simple. A few weeks later I realized just how valuable this might be not only for me but for my customers as well.

Marpé + Instacart: A Perfect Marriage

On the Instacart website and app, you will find a “Shop with Friends” feature. With this feature, I am able to turn grocery lists to online purchasable groceries. What a game changer for us! Our service now compares to meal ingredient delivery services but for a fraction of the price. Plus setting it up this way provides a flexibility that these other services lack.  By sharing a cart, customers can omit any ingredients they already have on hand or add any extra foods beyond the ingredients of the recipes.

So if you haven’t already, go sign up for Instacart and download their app. Order your groceries while drinking coffee in your PJ’s. It’s awesome.

And then, if you aren’t a current member but love the idea of having a healthy, paleo-inspired dinner menu laid out for your work week and the ability to order the ingredients for that menu online, sign up for our meal planning service today!

The end.
