Mealtime Made Easy

Does this sound familiar? It’s getting late, the kids are hungry and you haven’t even started thinking about what to make for dinner. But what if you had three healthy, delicious, semi-prepped meals waiting for you in the fridge, and the kids were excited to help you cook that night? No, you’re not dreaming. Enter the magic of One Potato.

Followers of Catherine McCord’s Weelicious website and cookbooks will love the fresh and convenient One Potato meal kit delivery service, which she co-founded with Jenna Stein and Chris Heyman, featuring the ultra kid-pleasing recipes that have made Weelicious a family favorite. Each week, your family will receive everything you need to make three mouthwatering meals with organic ingredients. One Potato is designed with families in mind, by focusing on simple and healthy meals, with adult and child portion sizes. And the best part? You can get all of the dinners ready and on the table in 30 minutes. No more of the hectic kitchen scramble trying to figure out what to cook.

Inside each One Potato box, you’ll receive three family dinners, with the ingredients for each meal individually packaged, pre-measured and labeled, so dinner prep is a snap. Step by step instruction sheets with full-color pictures show you exactly what to do from start to finish. You’ll even get tips and ideas for involving the kids in the cooking process and encouraging them to try new flavors. Give each of the kids a job to do, and transform the old dinner rush into family bonding time as you whip up a meal together. In addition, your mini chefs will love finding the free slice and bake cookie dough that comes included in every box for a sweet after-dinner treat!

If you won’t be home right away, no need to worry. Your delivery will stay nice and cold in the insulated box with frozen gel packs. Plus, all of the One Potato packaging is made from recyclable and biodegradable materials, so you don’t end up with a ton of waste.
