This week’s episode is brought to you by Thrive Market, Bada Bean Bada Boom & Cook Smarts
2020 couldn’t be more scary, and damn it, we’re taking Halloween as an opportunity to embrace the madness instead of letting it get us down. We’re leaning into Halloween even though it’ll look different this year and have plenty of ideas for you to do the same. Whether you’re staying home with family, attending a small gathering, or looking for safe ways to go out, we’ve got you covered.

Keeping Halloween Freaky Fun
We have no idea what’s in store this Halloween — and it may not be clear until the very last minute — so we’re brainstorming all of the ideas to keep it fun for kids (and, ahem, grownups) of all ages.
Here are the links mentioned in our conversation:
CDC Halloween Guidelines Warn Against Typical Trick-or-Treating — and here are there actual Halloween guidelines
Halloween holiday mash up

Bada Bean Bada Boom are DELICIOUS high-protein snacks made of roasted broad beans, though you’d never know it. The 13 flavors are far from tasting like nutritious beans and, instead, serve up 7 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber in tasty flavors like Zesty Ranch, Everything Bagel, Nacho Cheese, Sweet Cinnamon and more.
We promise our kids are as obsessed as we are! If you’re curious to know whether you and yours will love these super crunchy snacks as much as we do, give them a try and get $10 off any order $50 or more at BadaBeanSnacks.com/didntijustfeedyou.
When it comes to cooking, we believe that meal planning is the absolute best way to make life in the kitchen easier, but we also understand that not everyone is a meal planner! If you’d rather have someone do the meal planning for you, you’re going to love Cook Smarts, the #1 rated meal planning service according to Lifehacker.com, and our favorite too.
There are lots of meal planning services is out there and we’ve given nearly every one a try; Cook Smarts is #1 for a reason. With tons of flexibility and choice, Cook Smarts makes meal planning — that isn’t too prescriptive! — super easy thanks to recipes that are simple, but far from boring and adaptable for any diet.
