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?
