Busy Families Can Benefit From This Meal Kit Delivery Service

What a Crock Meals To Go Logo

What a Crock Meals to Go is the next big meal kit delivery service. Eliminating processed foods, this company is starting to change the meal delivery landscape.

Chemically processed foods are made solely from refined ingredients and artificial substances. Our crock pot creations are made fresh and then frozen immediately–serving a healthy alternative.”

— Brieanna West, Founder

BROOKHAVEN, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — We live in a world of innovation. As a society, we are constantly looking for ways to simplify tasks and save time. This holds true to food preparation and has become apparent with the rise of meal prep delivery options.

About a decade ago, a phenomenon started occurring in American grocery stores. Someone had the genius idea of selling meal kits that contained all of the ingredients you would need to feed a family of 2 or 4 instead of needing to purchase and measure all of the ingredients separately. Additionally, some retailers had the idea of pre-slicing or cooking the ingredients to help save preparation time along with including recipe cards of instructions. This meal option was met with overwhelming success, and it was only a matter of time before someone turned this small, grocery shopping idea into its own business.

If by chance, the majority of the components are included and pre-measured, what else could these retailers do to make the meal prep process easier? Get the meals sent to your home.

Meal Kit Delivery: A New Culinary Industry

From New York City to the deep Southern states, many meal kit companies have emerged that all claim they’re the best. Whether it’s Martha Stewart or Amazon Fresh, they all can’t be the best. An industry has been created, threatening grocery stores and the traditional way of preparing dinner as we know it. There are now more than 100 meal delivery plans available in some form or another, from those who specialize in microwavable meals and juice cleanses to those who sell healthy crockpot meals.

A meal kit delivery subscription is a complicated purchase. The traditional services mail you three nights’ worth of portioned, fresh ingredients and the corresponding recipes to prepare them. Is there a perfect meal kit delivery service?

According to experts, the industry is predicted of being a multi-billion-dollar market by 2022, and about 19% of adults claim that they have tried a meal kit service at least once. Which is the best? There are many factors that go into determining that.

How What a Crock Compares

When trying to decide which meal kit delivery service option is best, there are a few factors to weigh. What are the cheapest options? Which choices will provide you with the best home-cooked meals? We’ve highlighted five of the most popular meal kit delivery services in the country to see how What a Crock compares:

1. Plated
According to Money, Plated is the “best meal kit service on the market.” Plated offers creative recipes that you probably wouldn’t usually prepare on your own. These recipe options require a bit of skill in the kitchen and don’t always come with all of the ingredients you need to make the dish, such as oil or eggs.

How What a Crock Compares:
What a Crock has less prep time but doesn’t necessarily have dishes that are as “creative” or “adventurous” as the ones through Plated. The aspects that What a Crock does have instead is a larger variety of meals, a lower minimum order requirement, and the option to ship to the entire country.

2. Blue Apron
When it comes to meal kits that are prepared with recipes, Blue Apron is one of the best. It is not necessary of being a culinary whiz to take on a seared steak or saffron pasta dish. However, Blue Apron’s recipe database is quite limited. Each week you are only given about 8-12 options to choose from and the prep/cooking time tends to be longer than other services; about 40-70 minutes on average. Blue Apron sets themselves apart from the rest with a wine delivery program which finds the best wines to pair with your meal plans, delivered right with your food.

How What a Crock Compares: What a Crock’s menu is much more in-depth. Meal prep time virtually disappears. What a Crock’s $40 minimum order requirement is also much lower than Blue Apron’s $60 requirement.

3. HelloFresh
HelloFresh has a similar model to Blue Apron but with quicker prep times; usually 20-30 minutes. HelloFresh breaks down their categories into “fit” meals, “quick” meals, and “variety.” The meals are also a bit simpler and less adventurous than the others we’ve highlighted. Depending on the culinary journey, it could either be good or bad based on what the consumer wants to experience.

How What a Crock Compares: HelloFresh was the most comparable to What a Crock in terms of variety, healthy options, low prep time, and low price.

4. Sun Basket
Sun Basket prides itself on offering health-conscious recipes that can accommodate almost any diet. Sun Basket’s main talking points are about its use of organic produce to have a fully organic meal with clean ingredients. You are also able to swap out ingredients for premium ones. For example, you can swap out a recipe that uses salmon with a better ingredient like halibut.

How What a Crock Compares: Sun Basket is incredibly environmentally conscious which makes it tough to beat in terms of sustainability. However, Sun Basket fails where their ingredients are usually pre-cut and pre-chopped, making it so the consumer has to use the ingredients very quickly before they go bad. With, What a Crock, your crock pot creations are saved in the freezer until you use them. What a Crock has a more expansive product offering, and the portions are cheaper.

5. Home Chef
Home Chef is similar to Blue Apron in the way that they offer a different set of available options each week. However, due to that, the offerings are limited (8-12 options). All options include easy-to-follow recipes. You can also choose a family plan based on how many servings you’ll require.

How What a Crock Compares: Home Chef offers fruit and smoothie options where What a Crock only has options that can be prepared in a crock pot. Home Chef also beats What a Crock’s shipping charges by a slim margin. However, What a Crock’s menu is more robust with lower prices per serving, on average.

Why What a Crock Meals are the best options

We believe that there are quite a few reasons why What a Crock meals are the best meal kit delivery service:


Everyone loves processed foods. A lot of us were raised on processed foods due to how cheap they are, how long their shelf life is, and how easy they are to keep around when you live a busy life and need a quick bite. One of the downsides to processed foods, though, is that they tend to be much less healthy than meals equipped with fresh ingredients. These processed foods are usually found with harmful ingredients such as preservatives, other artificial ingredients, high-fructose corn syrup, and sugar. These ingredients are one of the main causes of obesity in the United States and also contribute to other health-related issues. Our crockpot creations are all healthy meals. It’s also important to note that slow cookers use water and time to cook food, as opposed to added oils and fats found in other traditional, ready-made meals. What a Crock’s healthy crock pot meals cater to dietary restrictions such as vegetarian options and gluten-free ones as well.

More variety and creativity

The best meal kits seem to offer many options but not a lot of variety. With What a Crock Meals To Go, you have the option to choose from more than just dinner options. On top of dinners, we offer dips, soups, sides, and multiple dessert options to always have something new for your weekly recipes. We also offer bundles where we select a group of items that pair well together. For example, our Trip to Italy bundle features some Italian favorites such as Grandma’s Homemade Meatballs, Sausage Scallopini, Chicken Marsala, Tomato Basil Bisque, and more. We also have a No Gluten for Me bundle which brings some of our favorite, gluten-free crock pot meals together.

When you’re busy or crunched for time

Goodbye, unhealthy fast food and takeout. Hello, healthy crock pot meals delivered. No matter how busy your schedule may possibly be, prepared crock pot meals are the best solution for saving you time and money while also giving you optimal convenience when meal prepping. Your slow cooker is best for healthy, simple, and wholesome prepared meals that you and your family can enjoy at the end of any long day. Slow cooked crock pot creations are perfect for days that you’d rather spend by the pool or relaxing on a hammock instead of running around the kitchen. There are tons of summer-ready crockpot options available that would make any outdoor dinner or barbeques complete such as philly cheesesteak dip, old bay crab chowder, slow cooker steak sandwiches, and more.


Unlike the meals found in other dinner delivery services, What a Crock’s meals can all be frozen after they are prepared. This means that you can make a meal and freeze whatever you don’t use for a later time! This not only reduces food waste but also saves your budget. And what better way to save cooking time than by saving it twice?

Easy to make

What if we told you that it is possible to make an entire meal for your family in one single step without doing any prep work? It’s true! Most competitors require about 40-70 minutes of prep time. Cooking is so easy with a crock pot. Open up one of your What a Crock meals, pour it into the crock pot, cook, and serve. That’s it. You are able to set up your slow cooker in the morning before heading out and when you come home dinner is done and ready to serve. Also, most slow cooker recipes are so simple and require no culinary skills.

Clean up is a breeze

With other meal kit delivery services such as HelloFresh and Blue Apron, you’re given the task of preparing the meal yourself. This means cutting up all of the veggies, using multiple pots and pans to cook the dishes, and making a mess of your kitchen. With our prepared crock pot meals, there is no prep work associated with the meal that will make a mess of your kitchen. The only aspect that is in need of cleaning is your crock pot. You’re able to spend that time you would have wasted by preparing the meal on other parts of life such as hanging out with friends and family.

Food tastes better

Slowly cooking meat in a crockpot can effectively soften even the toughest of meats. In addition, you are able to purchase cuts of meat that are less expensive and would be tougher to chew if they were prepared on the stove or in the oven. There is a lower chance of your food being scorched or burnt due to the low temperatures that a crockpot uses to cook.

What a Crock: The Meal Delivery Service You Need

What a Crock began with a simple idea: produce healthy crockpot meals that help families save time and money. We have retail locations in Brookhaven, Garnet Valley, Ridley, Chestnut Hill and Quakertown. Make planning dinner easy without bundles. Choose from seafood, pork, chicken, sandwiches, soups, vegetables and more! Call us today at (484) 474-0451 or visit our website to place an order. Don’t forget we have gift cards!

Seriously FAB LLC launches ZINC IT OVER® – Finally! A sunscreen consumers will actually WANT to use.

Natural skincare startup Seriously FAB, based in Los Angeles, CA, announces the highly anticipated launch of its flagship product, ZINC IT OVER®.

SIERRA MADRE, CA, US, July 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Natural skincare startup Seriously FAB, based in Southern California, announces the highly anticipated launch of its first product: ZINC IT OVER® — a revolutionary Broad Spectrum SPF 25 Over Makeup Sunscreen Facial Mist designed for active women who desire a truly exceptional sun protection solution.

ZINC IT OVER® addresses a crucial dilemma: Topical sunscreens are only effective for two hours, so if a woman is out all day with makeup on and not re-applying sunscreen throughout the day, she is exposing herself to the sun’s damaging rays for an extended period of time. 

Seriously FAB’s flagship product was designed to wear over foundation and other cosmetics to set makeup, and to provide elegant and convenient protection against UVA + UVB damage and skin aging via re-application throughout the day.

Experts such as the American Academy of Dermatology, Skin Cancer Foundation, Environmental Working Group, and the Federal Drug Administration have long touted the need for sunscreen re-application every two hours in order to effectively protect the skin from sun damage and to reduce the risk of skin cancer, but there has not been an effective solution with makeup present, until now.

Zinc Oxide, which is widely known to be the best sun protection ingredient available in the US market, historically has been limited in versatility, due to its thick and opaque nature. The formulation team at Seriously FAB discovered a way to overcome this challenge. The formula delivers lightweight and precise sun protection coverage with NO white cast via non-aerosol high quality fine mist spray application.

Other well known sunscreen manufacturers are using controversial chemicals such as Avobenzone, Homosalate, Oxybenzone, Octinoxate, and Benzophenone to hold their product formulas together and to achieve a higher SPF. Seriously FAB’s formulation team took a different approach and was determined to create something completely safe and effective without the use of any controversial chemicals.

Seriously FAB’s Founder Lisa Mary stated, “There has been little innovation in sunscreen in recent years. Prior to this product, the only options for consumers to choose from were either sunscreens laden with a bunch of awful chemicals, or thick, opaque Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide topical sunscreens which are better for one's health, but very limiting in application and not elegant. We set out to create something totally different than anything on the market.” She went on to say, “Our mission is to give women a better option for sunscreen, because when you have something that's fun and easy to use, you're going to want to do it more often!”

In addition to its convenient sun protection function, ZINC IT OVER® contains Phytonutrients and Antioxidants that protect, hydrate, and nourish the skin. Some of the carefully selected, nutrient-rich ingredients include Aloe Vera, Blueberry, Pomegranate, Pumpkin Seed, Rooibos Tea, Vitamin E, and a special ingredient that contains its own UV protective qualities.

Also, of highest importance to the company was that there would be no animal testing performed and that no animal byproducts would be used, allowing for the delivery of a formula that is both Cruelty Free and Vegan. The formula is certified Vegan through Vegan Action (Vegan.org).

A full size bottle (3 fl. oz. / 90 ml) of ZINC IT OVER® is available in Unscented, Tropical Floral and Citrus Passion and retails for $39. The product can be purchased through approved retailers throughout the US and at www.SeriouslyFAB.com.

ZINC IT OVER® is a new generation of physical sunscreen that is poised to become the gold standard in sun protection for active women who are looking for an elegant, effective and convenient way to protect themselves against premature aging caused by UVA + UVB damage.

About Seriously FAB
Seriously FAB exists to shake up the natural beauty products genre by designing fun, innovative and effective sun protection and anti-aging products for active and forever young-at-heart individuals who believe in the value of quality and share in our vision of living each day fully, accepting nothing short of greatness & giving back for a better tomorrow.

Maureen Sheeran, NCJFCJ Chief Program Officer, Announces Retirement

The NCJFCJ is the Nation’s Oldest Judicial Membership Organization

Maureen “Mo” Sheeran, chief program officer for family violence and domestic relations programs at the NCJFCJ, has announced her retirement.

From a time when domestic violence was barely understood, Mo grew the NCJFCJ to its stature as the preeminent leader in the country.”

— Honorable Susan B. Carbon, New Hampshire Circuit Court

RENO, NV, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Reno, Nev.) – Maureen “Mo” Sheeran, chief program officer for family violence and domestic relations programs at the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), has announced her retirement from the organization as of August 15.

Sheeran has been a leader in domestic violence prevention and services for more than 30 years. She has significantly contributed to the NCJFCJ’s efforts to improve judicial response to domestic violence, and to improve outcomes for victims of domestic violence and their children involved in the family court and dependency systems. Since assisting in the establishment of the Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody in 1994, she has spearheaded initiatives to design more effective approaches to working with battered women and their children.

“From a time when domestic violence was barely understood, Mo grew the NCJFCJ to its stature as the preeminent leader in the country,” said the Honorable Susan B. Carbon of New Hampshire Circuit Court and past president of the NCJFCJ. “She has grown and cultivated a staff that share her drive and dedication. Her energy and passion are infectious. Every life she touches is made better because of it. I am one of the fortunate beneficiaries of the privilege of knowing and working with Mo for the past 22 years.”

She has provided leadership nationally on supervised visitation and exchange services that account for domestic violence. She also serves in an advisory capacity for numerous organizations, focusing on collaborative efforts that harness the resources and expertise of various professionals and organizations to achieve safe and just outcomes. She has developed a myriad of groundbreaking judicial curriculum at national conferences on domestic violence. During her tenure with the NCJFCJ, she has overseen more than $50 million in federally funded grant projects; served as an advisor for many organizations; and developed national conference curriculums on such issues as full faith and credit, firearms and domestic violence, and effective interventions in domestic violence and child maltreatment cases.

“Mo has a great ability to work and build relationships with government agencies, domestic violence advocates, other organizations, and judges,” said the Honorable Dale Koch (Ret.) of Multnomah County, Ore. and past president of the NCJFCJ. “She is a problem solver, who is always working to find solutions, rather than create barriers to success.

How Does a Hospital Stay Open When Its Water Supply is Cut?

The first time a Utah hospital used an emergency water filtration system was a success

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, July 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Early Saturday morning, July 14, flash flood waters that ran over the site of the 2017 Brian Head fire in Utah overwhelmed and contaminated the spring water collection boxes that feed into the Panguitch, Utah culinary water system. It caused the rural city of 1,800 to declare an immediate "No Water Use" order for culinary water. What that meant is: absolutely no water use, even if boiled.

What did this mean for 14-bed Intermountain Garfield Memorial Hospital, managed by Utah’s Intermountain Healthcare system, who used the city's culinary water? Water is used in so many ways inside a hospital, not just for drinking or bathing. There’s food preparation, dishwashing, laundry services, hand washing, and sterilization of instruments.

The Intermountain Healthcare Emergency Preparedness team was ready. They immediately responded to the notification, putting into action the water disruption emergency response plan for the hospital. The hospital needed both bottled water and filtrated water, and not knowing how long the “No Water Use” order would be in place, also needed water filtration systems.

The Southwest Utah Healthcare Preparedness Coalition was contacted for help. This coalition is comprised of healthcare representatives from five southwest Utah counties, and includes six hospitals, three of which are Intermountain hospitals. This coalition was formed to pool knowledge, resources, and support in case of emergencies. The Coalition had used federal grant funds to purchase low and high-density water filtration systems. Neither filtration system had ever been made fully operational, but coalition members had previously trained on how to use them. These filtration systems were transported to Intermountain Garfield Memorial.

By 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon, the filtration systems were fully hooked up, filtering water through a four-stage process. Before the filtrated water was used, a water sample was taken by the local health department and tested to make sure the filtration system was functioning properly. The testing showed the water was clean and safe to use, so the filtrated water was used for drinking, handwashing, bathing and food service operations.

Thousands of bottles of water were sent from other Intermountain hospitals as well as food service items like disposable plates, cups, bowls and cutlery, as dishwashers couldn’t be used.

Intermountain Garfield Memorial's chef created six-day food plans for all the inpatient, caregiver and long-term care residents, and coordinated how foods would be prepared and managed without use of culinary water.

Another issue to solve was laundry services. Intermountain Garfield Memorial washes their laundry on-site. Another rural facility, Intermountain Sevier Valley Hospital (about 100 miles away) coordinated with Intermountain Garfield Memorial to do their laundry, keeping the hospital supplied with clean linens.

Sunday afternoon, July 15, Panguitch City moved from the "No Use Water" order to "Boil Water" order. But the "Boil Water" order did not mean it was yet okay to use the culinary water system at the hospital. Even though the water could be boiled for use elsewhere in the city, the hospital still only used bottled or filtrated water.

The "Boil Water" order for Panguitch was lifted on Wednesday, July 18. At this point, it was time to fully clean the hospital's water system. The process was a highly systematic, thorough one. Water was fully drained out of pipes, filled with chlorinated water, allowed to sanitize for several hours, then fully flushed out of the system. Once that was done, the water was tested once again to ensure it was clean and safe.

Alberto Vasquez, administrator at Intermountain Garfield Memorial, said, "I am so proud of our team and how our hospital has responded. When a hospital has never experienced something like this before in our state, it's hard to know what to expect and there are so many elements that must be considered and handled proactively for the safety of all. And having been able to ensure the safety of all has been a testament to the above-and-beyond attitude of all involved, along with the training, foresight, and everyone working together."

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit www.intermountainhealthcare.org.
