With a few recent health-related dietary changes, I’ve been finding myself cooking at home more often these days. The problem? Coming up with enough dishes to keep it interesting!
When Green Chef, a USDA-organic certified meal kit delivery company, offered to send me a box of their meals, I knew it would be perfect for adding variety to my current meal rotation! They have seven different meal plans: omnivore, carnivore, vegetarian, gluten-free, paleo, vegan, and family-plans. I went for the gluten-free box and, before I knew it, it was waiting on my doorstep on my scheduled delivery date! The food comes in insulated, eco-friendly packing, so there’s no need to be at home the moment it arrives, which definitely took the pressure off for me.
I went for the 2-Person Plan, which is delivered each week in a single box with ingredients for three recipes that serve two people each. The best part for me? I’m only one person, so this meant double the meals- it’s totally revolutionized the way I eat! I’ll cook both servings in the evening, eat one for dinner, and bring the other with me the next day, which has been such a luxury.
Lately I’d been having to resort to the same few quick-service restaurants for lunch, since I’m usually on the go and options are slim for my dietary needs. The meals I’ve been preparing using Green Chef, however, are top-notch and I truly feel like I’m getting to eat food that’s better (and healthier!) than what I had been eating out. No such thing as sad lunch leftovers with these guys 🙂
Another thing is that when I was coming up with my own meals before, I’d end up with too many extra, unused ingredients, so I love that Green Chef sends exactly what I need with prepped, pre-measured ingredients and sauces. Major bonus: ingredients are sourced from local and regional farms, so you’re getting the fresh, organic ingredients from sustainable sources! Oh, and the meals only take around 30-minutes to prepare, which has totally saved me this week and I’ve loved trying out new ingredients and recipes! As they say, variety is the spice of life!
