I've always enjoyed home cooked meals. When my children were younger, I made it a point to sit down together every night. Now that two my three children have moved out, I'm working outside the home more. This means I have less time to shop than I use to and not as much motivation. However, I still prefer eating at home to eating out
I like to know exactly what I put into my body. I constantly struggle with my weight but do better when I eat at home.
I love the idea of home delivery service. Green Chef has mastered the art of home delivery.
It's nice to come home from work and find a box of groceries sitting on my doorstep. Since the box is well insulated with great ice packing, I didn't have to worry that my food might spoil. before I get home. Even better, I don't have to waste time at the grocery store only to get home to find out I forgot half the ingredients and have to make a return trip.
With Green Chef I can choose three meals that work for my family. I love that the meals are USDA certified organic which means all of the ingredients are organic including the meat. I chose the gluten free option and the meals for two people for three days.
The options include:
With so many options, it's unlikely that one wouldn't be able to find a meal plant that works for them.
The meals are super easy to prepare. The ingredients are pre-assembled and pre-measured. They also come color coded. A colored card for each meal shows the step by step instructions so it's hard to go wrong.
The Creole Steak was a hit. I have a teenage son but between my husband and my son, we're not big eaters. I was able to feed three of us on the recipe made for two. I doubt that would work for most families but I was excited it worked for us.
I love that the meals have great tasting veggie options. I was pleasantly surprised with the combination of butternut squash and red pepper with the creole seasoning. It's not a mix I would have thought of on my own but we loved it.
Our favorite meal was the Tandori Chicken. This meal and the most generous portion sizes and fed three instead of two. Again, it's only a two person meal but worked for my family of three small eaters. The garam masala seasoning mixed with tandoori yogurt sauce gave this a flavor I haven't tried before. The white quinoa with cinnamons a raisins added a slightly sweet flavor which went well with the chicken. I like the healthy alternative of quinoa to regular grain. My favorite was generous serving of vegetables.The green pepper and the sweet potatoes were a great combination.
I don't like eating meat every night so it was great to have a vegetarian option. I loved the Red Beet Risotto. I never imagined I would get a meal made with red beets. I love beets so I was excited to give this a try. I didn't care for the goat cheese on my risotto but my husband liked it. Out of three meals, only having one optional ingredient I didn't like was awesome. I left the goat cheese off my serving and enjoyed my risotto. I've never had a meal anything quite like this one and I felt like I was living on the edge trying something so different. I loved the citrus, snap peas, and mint salad. This one the one salad I wish had been a bigger serving. This was the one meal that only served two.
The meal service costs between $10.49 per person per meal to $14.99 per person per meal. I have to admit, when I thought about paying $30 per meal, it sounded expensive. However, as I broke down my grocery bill, it dawned on me that I buy a lot of things I don't need at the grocery store. By the time I factor in the time I save shopping and the extra things I wouldn't buy, the price didn't seem so bad after all. Since Green Chef is a subscription service, you get a delivery every week. I like that they give you the option of skipping weeks. I travel a lot so a weekly subscription doesn't work but knowing I can cancel weeks makes me more likely to use the service.
