Having a household of three growing boys and my husband, it seems that I am always in the kitchen. There is never a shortage of “I’m hungry’’ going around.
Now that life is all about being locked up 24-7, I have been struggling with ways to keep the boys fed and keep the diversity in meals going.
When all you have to do is eat, sit around, eat some more, and binge on Netflix, cooking turns into a chore and you get tired of the same old meals. Thanks to my secret listeners on Facebook, I had an ad pop up on my feed for a meal service called EveryPlate. It was advertising three meals with two servings each for less than $3.99 a plate. That was six meals sent to my house to make, for less than $40 including shipping!
I have always wanted to try a meal service, and with Oliver being so picky yet striving to provide him with the best choices, I opted to try this one out. Three months in with the service, and needless to say I am in love! I have been able to get multiple people sign up for the service (no pyramid scheme here), and they love it too!
Every Tuesday, I get my meals and ingredients sent to my door in a box with adequate packing and ice blocks to keep everything cold and fresh. In the box is the meals you pre-selected along with the recipes on how to prepare them. Every recipe comes with everything you need, starting with the meats, fresh produce, all the way down to the seasonings and herbs. Most of the time you just need to add your own flour or water and oil.
Because I have boys who can eat, we get 4 meals sent to our household each week. With the option to skip or cancel anytime, I am never in fear that I am locked down in some kind of contract. And no, I did not or am not getting paid to write this. Lol.
Just from one family to another, this has saved so much time and stress off of my hands and mind.
The recipes are ever changing and always top notch. Oliver, being my kiddo who has the allergies and pickiness, has enjoyed himself some bacon grilled cheese, chicken sausage tomato soup, and even Honey Chipotle chicken!
With it being such a risk to head out to the stores these days, this is such a great option to have your food delivered right to your door!
