I tried two recipes over the course of the weekend and here are my take aways in a quick pro/con list:
Super easy to order online
All ingredients are measured out
Meals took less than 30 mins to prep
Instructions were super easy to follow (with pictures!)
They were delicious
Different (or variation) of meals we would normally eat
Not having to answer question "what's for dinner?"
Gave me confidence in preparing a meal (I hate to cook!)
You can skip weeks or sub out meal choices
I found it to be a bit pricey
We only had a few or no leftovers (which might be a pro for some)
I ended up preparing a few additional sides to have enough food (but easy things like fruit or extra veggie)
If you have a picky eater, this is not the meal plan service for you
One of the meals we got was BBQ chicken (which is something I already make)
I spent more time in the kitchen than I thought I would prepping and then cooking
While the cons list was smaller the pricing and picky eater issue outweighed the pros. I might consider doing it again if we had guests or a crazy busy week.
My advice would be to give it a try (especially if you have a promo code. On their website you can get two free meals with your first order!) and let me know what thou think.
I have to share my proudest moment...salmon with noodles and long green beans. So pretty and so good!
