The last week of December is filled with lots of promises we make to ourselves for the New Year. And although January 1st has already come and gone, there’s no need to panic because resolutions are all about progress, not perfection.
Spending less, saving more and being more cost-conscious with our finances shouldn’t just be a goal to only think about in January, but something that’s practiced throughout the entire year. And with monthly shipments of the best wild-caught, sustainable seafood through a Wild Alaskan membership, you can achieve all that without breaking the bank or sacrificing your healthy habits and desire for tasty food.
A Cost-Effective Plan to Get Healthy in 2020
Getting healthy and losing weight are some of the most common New Year's resolutions. In fact, according to a survey of 2,000 respondents, the top three resolutions in 2019 were: 1. Diet or eat healthier (71 percent), 2. Exercise more (65 percent) and 3. Lose weight (54 percent). In order to achieve these goals year after year, you need a plan. Which is why signing up for a monthly seafood membership is the perfect health-focused gift that keeps on giving. Each month you'll receive wild-caught, sustainable, healthy (and delicious) seafood, delivered right to your doorstep, making it effortless to stick to those healthy-eating objectives you’re set on accomplishing. No excuses, no ditching your healthy habits halfway through the year and no looking back. You'll have easy access to nutritious and premium fish each month, and it's a cost-effective way to maintain a healthier diet all year long.
Cooking At Home = Saving Money
Everyone has their favorite restaurant or go-to food spots they love, but we’ve all got to feed our body three times a day. So constantly eating out can get expensive and impractical. Some research shows that ordering delivery can be almost five times more expensive than cooking at home. And with some restaurants charging a 300% markup of ingredient costs, we’ll leave dining out to special occasions or those days where turning on our stove just isn’t going to happen. It’s definitely important to treat yourself, but it’s equally important to keep an eye on your pocketbook as well.
The More You Order, The More You Save
So we know that cooking at home is cheaper, but how and where you get your ingredients matters just as much. With Wild Alaskan, signing up for a monthly membership can save you big bucks, especially if you sign up for our larger 24-pack box. The more you order, the cheaper it is per serving. That's because the majority of the cost is impacted by all the steps needed to get your fish from Alaska to arrive frozen at your doorstep. And for every additional individually wrapped portion of fish you order, it will cost less to ship those deliveries, a savings that we pass on to our members. And many of our members who order our 24-pack box have let us in on their own pro tip: going in on their box with friends, coworkers or neighbors. This way, whether you’re in a household of one or a family of five, everyone saves money together.
Our extremely popular quick cuts of wild Alaska pollock (when available as an add-on to your regular monthly box) is another easy way to cut costs while loading up on nutritious meals for your family. With 3 oz. being the the average serving size of fish for children up to 10 years old, an order of our wild Alaska pollock equates to less than $3 per serving for each little one. And as the star of any meal that’s the ultimate kid-friendly fish, it’ll be so delicious that all you’ll need is a simple, easy-to-make (and cheap!) side dish such as a green salad or steamed vegetables to serve alongside it.
Variety + Quality + Convenience = Wallet and Diet-Friendly Meals
Cost matters, and quality is crucial, but we all know that if a meal plan isn't convenient, it won't stick. If it's too much work to order, unpack, store and prepare your subscription ingredients, you'll never use them and you'll definitely never re-order. But Wild Alaskan delivers (literally) on all fronts. It comes right to your door – doesn't get much easier than that. It's as delicious as a catch right off the boat can get, thanks to sustainable harvesting and freezing the wild-caught fish immediately after it is caught, locking in maximum freshness. Our seafood keeps well in the freezer and we recommend consuming it within six months of delivery, which keeps food waste at a minimum. You'll be able to maintain a healthier lifestyle with minimal effort and almost zero planning.
And because you receive your seafood order every month, you'll automatically have a stocked freezer full of a variety of fish that you can whip up anytime you have a craving for a delicious home-cooked meal, which is a lot more satiating than spending way too much money on Seamless again. After all, flexibility matters, and having the option to cook a balanced, tasty, seafood meal when the mood strikes is priceless (though the price is appealing too).
So now that a Wild Alaskan membership will be saving you money while also encouraging healthier eating habits in 2020, it’s time to think about what beach to go vacation to with all the extra funds in your bank!
