I am thrilled to announce The Scramble’s partnership with Prepear for all your meal planning needs!
See below for details about this exciting new chapter in The Scramble’s journey, why it is happening how, and what it means for you.
When I first became a health coach and was working with families and individuals who wanted to change their lifestyle, I knew that cooking was at the core. As the years have gone by and through my work at The Scramble, I have come to believe even more strongly that the secret to a healthy and happy relationship with food is cooking for yourself.
In 2017, when I took over The Scramble, I did so because I saw it as a unique opportunity to share my belief that cooking doesn’t have to be a scary, stressful, or overwhelming process, and that making simple delicious meals is something that anyone can do. Our rebrand in 2019 was a further realization of my dream to create a place on the web where people could find practical cooking resources and delicious, satisfying, and healthy recipes that are perfect for daily life.
Now, as The Scramble is in its 17th year of existence, I have found that it is time to look closely at the meal planning service that we offer. There is no doubt that our recipes are some of the most family-friendly, delicious, and healthy recipes out there. But the reality is that while our recipes have stayed top notch, our user experience has become dated.
The feedback from our member surveys has been consistent: keep the great recipes, add a native mobile app, include online grocery delivery (something that is even more important in these times), and give members the ability to see only recipes that work for their dietary needs or restrictions.
These are all features that I have wanted to offer to our members since the moment I took over and have striven to do so. The reality, however, is that given the scale of the business, the only way to deliver on these enhancements would be to significantly increase the subscription fees. As our mission is to help as many families as possible, we have been looking to decrease the cost of participation, not increase it.
So, after years of searching for the perfect solution, I am thrilled to announce that we have partnered with Prepear to provide our members with a meal planning solution that will continue to provide them with healthy meal plans full of delicious family-friendly recipes.
I am so excited for this next step in The Scramble’s mission to help people to discover the pleasures of easy cooking and joyful eating, and I am certain that Prepear is going to provide families with all that we could and more. Please see below for a list of answers to what I anticipate will be your burning questions.
More than anything, though, I want to express my deep gratitude for your belief in and support of The Scramble over all of these years. You have been a part of our family, and I like to think that The Scramble has been (and will continue to be) a part of yours.
