This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Newman’s Own. All opinions are 100% mine.
Have you guys seen this video that’s been going viral online? It’s rings very true to so many of us I think!
Sometimes as a blogger I feel partially responsible for this crazy urge we women get to do it all, make it all, and give this perfect outward appearance…but in real life no one can maintain those Pinterest standards all the time. Sometimes we need to give ourselves permission to NOT make everything from scratch-to realize that there are options that are just as good as homemade and take the pressure off!
Over the weekend we had a family pizza night-and I put this practice to the test by running to the store and buying some Newman’s Own frozen pizzas. And you know what? It was delicious, high quality, and all natural (no cured meat-I love that about their pepperoni pizza!) They also have Margherita and Four Cheese Flavors my boys love!
It was also affordable-when we order pizza for delivery it easily costs well over $30 to feed my family of 5, and we cut that by a third (and saved calories!) by choosing Newman’s Own as well.
One of the reasons I choose Newman’s Own is because I love the fact that all of their profits go to charity. Over $400 million has been given to thousands of charities since 1982. How amazing is that for a company in this day and age? I love being able to share that with my boys and plant those seeds of charity in their hearts.
So what do you say that you and I make a pact-let’s try to NOT be Pinterest perfect this week. Let’s carve out a time to take the pressure off of ourselves and still feel good about feeding our family healthy food and supporting a good cause? Anybody with me? (And can we please not clean the bathrooms this week too? I hate that!)
