I’ve tried a few meal prep kit services, but have found them to be too expensive for the amount of food you receive. I wasn’t planning to subscribe to another one, but I came across a great deal for a dinner kit service called EveryPlate. This service has the lowest serving cost I’ve seen, so I wanted to try out the quality of the ingredients.
EveryPlate offers a two-person and four-person plan with three meals per week. Recipes are healthy and menus can be customized to minimize pasta and gluten. You can choose your three meals from a selection of five. Selections include old-fashioned favorites, like Steak Frites, Bistro Burgers and Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, as well as exotic flavors like Balsamic Steaks with Bruschetta Toasts and Roasted Zucchini and Beef Banh Mi Bowls.
The preparation for each meal was relatively quick and easy. All the vegetables, meats, sides and spices were included, as well as recipe cards with a few quick steps. The recipes from my first box were Garlic-Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Root Veggies, Skillet Apple Pork Chops with Sweet Potatoes and Lemony Green Beans and Beef Banh Mi Bowls with Sriracha Mayo and Pickled Cucumber. Each recipe card walks you through all the steps of preparation, although in some cases I found that my own method of multitasking in the kitchen was more time-effective (i.e. chopping vegetables while meat or pasta is cooking).
The ingredients were very good quality and everything was packed with cold packs to keep the items fresh. The only things needed were occasionally some butter, oil, milk, etc.
Here’s a taste of my first EveryPlate box:
Stay tuned for a cook-through and review of my next box!
