Easy bein’ green

The Colorado-based company, which has been featured in Vogue and Forbes, offers the first USDA-certified organic, non-GMO, sustainable meal kit delivery with diet-specific plans, including vegan, keto, gluten-free, paleo, carnivore, omnivore, and vegetarian. Choose the meal plan that best fits your lifestyle, and you will receive pre-measured, mostly prepped ingredients (including sauces and dressings) in recyclable packaging, delivered on the weekday of your choice. Most meals are ready in about 30 minutes. Dig in.
Hot and bothered
Need a kick in the tastebuds? Try Chipotle Joe Hot Sauce, the combined work of two local purveyors, Pablo’s Coffee and Merfs Condiments. The $5.25 bottles, available at all three Pablo’s locations, at Whole Foods, and at Snooze Eatery locations, as well as online, combine the flavors of sweet red cherries, smoky chipotle peppers, garlic, and apple cider vinegar and are finished off with smoke and Pablo’s coffee. Perfect for everything from breakfast tacos to Bloody Marys.
Cook up a storm
If the idea of cooking your own romantic dinner for Valentine’s Day strikes your fancy, check out the new Create Cooking School at Stanley Marketplace. The school, which opened late last year, designs each class around a specific cuisine—from tapas and wine to British pub food to San Francisco Yakitori to Southern home cooking. For you romantics, each of the school’s date-night classes explores a different region of the world and includes a three-course meal and a signature cocktail. (Best of all, there’s no cleanup afterward!)
