We live a very busy on-the-go lifestyle, so sometimes finding recipes and gathering ingredients from the grocery store to make a healthy meal just doesn't happen. That's part of the reason I was so intrigued by Home Chef. It was one of the first meal subscription services that I had ever heard of and have been wanting to give it a try.
Home Chef delivers perfectly portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes directly to your door, so whether you're an amateur cook, or more seasoned in the kitchen, cooking with Home Chef is easy and enjoyable.
Each week, you can use the personalized recipe recommendations they provide you based on your dietary recommendations. For us, I chose low carb and no dairy. But you can also change the recommended recipes and pick from 11 fresh, chef-designed dinners, priced at $9.95 per serving. They change their menu weekly to give you countless new dinner options. I did end up changing outs a little bit. They also have little additions that you can add to your order for $4.49 each, like a smoothie or seasonal fruit basket (which I added).
The recipes take about 30 minutes to create, but by using the simple, step-by-step recipe cards that Home Chef provides, I was able to confidently prepare these meals from scratch. Plus all the ingredients were perfectly portioned as well as packaged into each meal so there was truly no guest work involved. The two meals that we re-created were Al Pastor Pork Tacos with pineapple & chipotle pepper and Fiesta Chicken with fresh salsa, roasted chayote squash, and queso fresco. I had never had chayote squash before. My favorite was definitely the Fiesta Chicken.
My favorite part of this entire experience was having my husband tell me how much he loved these recipes. He said they had so much flavor (which they did) and that he would love for us to sign up regularly. He did have two takes on this service: he loved the convenience and that it can help you get out of a "recipe funk" when you are cooking at home quite often like we do because of our weightloss journey. He also liked that the service had less waste because with the grocery store you may buy a whole bunch of parsley, but only use about half and end up throwing the other half away.
For a limited time, you can score $30 off your first box from Home Chef. Making this a steal of a deal you will definitely want to grab. Plus score free shipping when your order reaches $45. And you can skip weeks or unsubscribe completely, if you'd like, at any time.
