If you’re looking for a simple and easy solution for meal planning, Prep Dish is everything you need, and more. Prep Dish is a subscription-based meal planning service with both paleo and gluten-free options. When you sign up for PrepDish, you’ll receive an email every week with a grocery list and instructions for prepping your meals ahead of time.

Warby Parker

This podcast is sponsored by Warby Parker! I first became familiar with Warby Parker because they were interviewed on the podcast “How I built this” by NPR. Go download it, it’s one of my favorite episodes and super inspiring.

Basically, you can go on their website, look at all the eyeglasses, pick 5 pairs of glasses and try them on for free — there is no obligation to buy! You just get them shipped to you, you try them on in the comfort of your own home with no one hovering over your shoulder, and ship them back with the pre-paid return shipping label.

Their aesthetic is vintage-inspired with a contemporary twist. Glasses start at $95, including prescription lenses. Almost every single pair on their website is $95. Lenses include anti-glare and anti-scratch coatings—which with my last pair of glasses, it was $100 add-on, just for the anti-glare.

Go to to take the quiz which will help you determine what shapes are great for your face, and order your Home Try-On! I cannot recommend it more. And if you choose to order, you can also add a blue-light-filter to your glasses, which doesn’t change the color at all. So, I did, and I have them on right now.

And if you’re into contacts, try Scout by Warby Parker – comfortable, breathable, and affordable daily contact lenses! They’re made from a super-moist material that resists drying. Order a trial pack that includes six days’ worth of contacts for only $5 – and then receive $5 off your next order. Learn more at
