Recently, we caught up with mom and entrepreneur Catherine McCord, founder of  Weelicious and One Potato, the super fresh, delicious, and healthy meal box delivery service for families. Not only did we ask her about her own holiday plans, but we even got her to share one of her favorite holiday recipes. Take a look below, and head to OnePotato.com to check out all their special holiday box offerings, from Thanksgiving meals to cookie kits!

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving! How will you be celebrating this year?

It’s a very different year. This year we will be making a huge and festive feast for the 5 of us. We will be sadly missing our parents and friends, but will be Zooming with them.

 

What’s new with One Potato for the holidays?

In addition to Thanksgiving, we’re also shipping a delectable Hannukah meal, sugar cookie decorating kids including cookie cutters and sprinkles plus Christmas dinner in case you’re keeping it under 6 people this year.

 

How has One Potato pivoted during the pandemic?

One Potato has grown in a big and beautiful way this year. The greatest gift in this time has been having the opportunity to reach so many families in a safe way offering meals that only take 12-30 minutes start to finish. We now offered a variety of meals week to week including 7 ready to blend frozen smoothies plus our signature homemade cookie dough.
