Blue Apron Review.

Hi there! Today I wanted to give you a quick review of this awesome meal service that’s all the rage. That’s right…Blue Apron!

They just started to deliver to Texas so I could not be more happy about having this wonderful option to try new meals with fresh ingredients. I was so thankful to receive a free offer from my good pal Elisha for three meals that were delivered right to my doorstep! With airtight/insulated packaging and ice, of course. The box arrived early Saturday afternoon. I was stoked to see it after coming back from my early morning run!

There were tons of ingredients in this box. Mint, cilantro, scallions, fresh garlic and ginger, onion, and meats!

I have to say this was a huge lifesaver for me this week. I’ve been CRAZY busy these last couple of weeks working late and covering shifts at the gym…this week I taught 5 spin classes total – on top of running and working out on my own. So I was thrilled to have an option that just takes all of the guesswork out.

The meal plans you can choose from include a 2 person plan and then a family plan. The 2 person plan for me is nice because that gives me 6 meals total (and I can cook for my date…or friends that come over and we can share!). Definitely enough to cover me for the work week.

My meals included turkey steamed buns, a pasta with fresh arugula pesto and my favorite dish of all, pan seared cod with curried basmati rice and snow peas. What I like the most is that all of the meals are pre portioned out, 500-700 calories a serving…and yes, still absolutely delicious! You can also alter the plan if you are a vegetarian, or if you want to cut out certain types of meats.

Overall I truly enjoyed receiving these meals from Blue Apron and I have already set up my next delivery in a few weeks. Very cool too that you can skip several weeks at a time if you want…like if you want to do 1 delivery a month, it works! I especially like the option to skip as a budget friendly way to cut back…but still get excellent meals and ideas to keep things spicy.

Have you ever tried Blue Apron or any meal delivery service that sends you FRESH ingredients to make at home?
What’s for dinner tonight?
Leftover yumminess!

  1. Oh, that meal looks so good. I will have to really sit down and look at our food budget and see if this would be way better. I like the idea of being able to cancel a week, etc. Now, can you choose what foods to get?

    • There are several meal options from week to week and you know way in advance (all of the meals are posted right now for the rest of June into July) so yes you can choose which ones you want…if there is something you do not like. It’s really nice! And I was skeptical but the food is really good and provides a ton of healthy options!!

  2. I’ve always wanted to try a service like that but have been worried about how “fresh” they actually are after shipping and sitting on ice in the hot Texas heat. Especially this time of year.

    • It comes in a refrigerated box with insulation so the food was still frozen when I received it. Also they will give you a time of delivery so you can be around when you get it. You sound just as much of a skeptic as I was! haha not for everyone obviously but try it if you want and let me know how you like it! Have a good day!

      • Thanks for the reply. I will look more into it and maybe order a 3 day supply to see how I like it. Maybe I will who knows. And since I juice twice a day I could probably stretch those portions out : )
