Most of us who aren’t fond of cooking are having to prepare our meals at home these days. Fortunately, there are plenty of meal delivery kits that provide convenience and delicious food that we can enjoy in the comfort of our own kitchen. There is no food wasted and no grocery shopping, as everything you need, including directions and recipes, is shipped to your doorstep. From basic to gourmet, there is a dish for every palette with meal delivery kit services.
Here are a few meal delivery kit options to choose from:
Blue Apron includes recipes that are chef-designed so diners can create high restaurant quality meals at home. They offer different types of plans including the Signature for creating multiple meals in one cooking session, the Vegetarian for meat-free dishes and the Signature for Two plan. Meals average $9.99 and start at $7.49. Since we cook often we definitely found the recipes easy to make and liked that most of the spices and sauces were already mixed and measured out. We also liked that we could choose what day of the week our delivery would arrive. They also offer a wine delivery service to pair with your menus. Our favorite dish was the Italian chicken and prosciutto panzanella, https://www.blueapron.com.
Sun Basket is a great option for diners that want a variety for special diets including vegetarian, pescatarian, gluten-free or Paleo. A big plus is that they offer heat-only options for those who don’t feel like cooking at all. They feature great dairy-free, vegan and gluten free sauces for sandwiches or snacks as well as healthy flatbreads, rice bowls, empanadas, rice, soups and salads perfect for lighter meals or snacks. They also feature egg bites, yogurts, oatmeal, juices and smoothie options for breakfast. Dinners are available in two or four serving sizes and start at $6.61. We loved that you could choose just how much cooking you want to do with everything from cut, prep and cook to oven-ready options. We also like that they had a lot of variety and interesting flavor choices. Our favorite meal from Sun Basket was their steak with chimichurri and harissa roasted sweet potatoes, https://sunbasket.com.
EveryPlate is one of the more affordable meal-kit delivery services featuring American comfort foods. Meals start at $4.99 with Premium meals costing a few dollars more. There is also a minimum number of six dinners per order. The menu includes plenty of comfort food so carb counters and people on special diets might find it harder to find meals that fit into their diets. EveryPlate offers diners a choice of two or four people with three, four or five meals per week with thirteen meals to choose from for each week with a few vegetarian choices. Since we are big meat and potato eaters we loved the selection, especially the steak with buttery pan sauce and the sticky sweet chili chicken, https://www.everyplate.com.
