Want to save time making dinner?

Do you ever go through periods in life when one or two areas start swallowing up more and more of your time and energy, leaving little room for anything else?  Maybe work gets a bit crazier than normal, you start training for a big race, or you decide to move.

Inevitably, some things just have to fall off.

This happened to me a few months ago and what fell off was something I absolutely love. Cooking.

Work was busy and I had to stay later most nights. I also really wanted to keep my commitment to my yoga practice, which meant going to the later classes.

Finding a recipe, grocery shopping, and cooking a meal from scratch every night just didn’t seem feasible.

We were going out to eat or ordering take out almost every night.

I was feeling guilty about this one day when I saw an ad for a special trial offer on a meal kit delivery service, Green Chef.

After some quick research, I realized there are a ton of these companies who will send you recipes and all the ingredients you need to make dinner for a few nights each week.

Since that would save me tons of time on the meal planning and grocery shopping, I decided to give it a shot!

I ended up trying three different services(Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, and Green Chef) to see which one was the best and to share my experience with you!

Overall, the experience was exciting and pretty easy! All kits had delicious and creative recipes that I may not have otherwise tried. The recipes were printed on cardstock so that they are easy to save a reuse.

Below is an infograph summary of the three services I tried.

Meal Delivery Kits

 

My favorite by far was Green Chef. One of the main reasons was that it’s all USDA Organic.

They also had some ingredients and sauces already prepared (not having to chop onions? YES PLEASE!) which made it even quicker and easier to prepare the meals. Another benefit of Green Chef is the variety of options. They have options for vegetarian, omnivore, carnivore AND special Gluten Free and Paleo options. The only thing that I wasn’t a huge fan of was that the vegetarian meals sometimes included tofu or seitan, which I personally do not eat.

By using my link, you’ll receive $40 off per box.

I’d highly recommend trying all three, leveraging the first time user promotions that make it even more affordable!

I hope this was helpful, ends up saving you time, and makes it a bit easier to do it all 🙂
