Good Food Made Easy with Blue Apron
I've been trying (and mostly failing) to eat better recently, but it's easier said than done. I didn't realize how much work actually goes into planning and preparing meals every week. Enter Blue Apron.
I've known about Blue Apron for a while, but I stayed away, mostly because of the cost. 60 bucks a week isn't exactly cheap. But after trying the Whole30 and realizing that actually cooking real meals is a little more expensive than buying frozen dinners and Ramen, I decided to try it out. Suffice it to say, Blue Apron is my new favorite thing.
Subscription services of all kinds are popping up all over the place, and dinner subscription services alone make up a large portion of this new market. After trying Blue Apron for a week, I can see why. I just finished my third Blue Apron meal this week (literally I just put my dishes in the sink and am wonderfully full), and these meals are delicious. This week I had mushroom and poblano pepper quesadillas, cod kedgeree, and kimchi and barley miso ramen. The two-person plan gets you three meals a week, but the portions are pretty decently sized, so I ended up with leftovers from two of those three meals, which I'm not mad about.
In case you live under a rock and don't know, Blue Apron sends you all the ingredients, portioned out, for your three meals for the week, so there's a check for convenience, and I've already mentioned how tasty these meals are. In addition to both those things, though, one of the things I really love about Blue Apron is that the ingredients are sustainably, responsibly, and ethically obtained directly from farms to bring you the highest-quality ingredients possible. And while $60 a week isn't necessarily cheap, Blue Apron is one of the cheaper food subscription services out there. Honestly, there's not much to dislike about this company.
I kind of wish there was an option for more meals per week, but that's just because I'm lazy. That's the only real critique I can think of, though. Blue Apron is awesome, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who, like me, needs a little help eating better during the week. Check out Blue Apron and sign up to get your own amazing meals!
