And that’s fine–especially when you’ve got a host of meal kit delivery services at your disposal. There are three amazingly delicious and outrageously healthy services that you must try this summer. Convenience…it’s what’s for dinner!
Green eggs and ham? Not quite. Think: Green as in USDA-certified organic, GMO-free ingredients sent to your doorstep direct from local farmers. This meal kit delivery service is for the family that makes a conscious effort to eat clean dinners. Order the family meal plan, which sends two wholesome dinners for a family of 4 and the cooking is done in 30-45 min. Examples of the scrumptious meals you can be serving up include Hawaiian Pork Fried Rice, Steak & Smashed Potatoes, and Crispy Dijon Chicken.
This Baltimore-based meal kit delivery service recently launched “Family Meals,” featuring dinners that feed a crew of four (with growling bellies). Each recipe comes with pre-prepped ingredients and a step-by-step card that guarantees you’ll be chowing down in under 30 minutes. But what makes Terra’s Kitchen stand out is its delivery method–ingredints are delivered in a climate controlled vessel (likened to a mini-fridge) that is reusable and can be left out for next-day pickup. Barbecued Chicken with Summer Tomato Corn Saland and Pork Carnitas Burrito Bowls are just a couple of the mouth watering meals you’ll make in mere minutes.
Cost: $9.99 – $17.99/serving
