In the next few months I will be highlighting some of my absolute favorite subscription delivery services. With hundreds of options to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming deciding what service is right for you. For this reason, I am going to be helping you by writing about some of my personal favorites. Recently I discovered a fantastic meal delivery service named Sun Basket. I’m in love with Sun Baskets, easy, affordable, and healthy meals. Here are 6 reasons I am over the moon and stars for Sun Basket.
Healthy Cooking – Steve and I embarked on a healthy lifestyle several months back. One of the biggest challenges that we have faced is overcoming the boredom of the same menu week after week. It’s the lack of variety that always gets us into trouble. One amazing aspect of Sun Basket is the unique recipes and meals chosen for the health conscious. Each meal is; Certified Organic & includes non-GMO produce. Knowing that not one eating plan works for everyone, Sun Basket has several options to chose from, including Paleo, Gluten-free, Vegetarian, and Breakfast options. A visit to their website will confirm this finding as you will discover several delectable meals available each week. You will notice these meals are not just your standard chicken and vegetables variety, but instead chef inspired masterpieces with clean eating in mind.
It’s Easy – Meals are selected each week from a list provided on Sun Baskets website. Your meals are delivered to your door packaged in an insulated recyclable box. Most meals are designed to be prepared in approximately 30 minutes. The ordering process is convenient and can be completed in minutes. Managing deliveries is effortless and there’s no obligation to continue orders every week. With ease you are able to skip deliveries directly through the Sun Basket website and you will be under no obligation to keep the service if you are not completely satisfied.
Cost – Sure it’s easy to stay fit and eat healthy if you can afford a personal chef, but what about the rest of us? I was under the misconception that embarking on a meal plan would be costly and unaffordable. I couldn’t have been more misinformed. Each meal is approximately $11.50 per serving & shipping is just $5.99 per order. If you look at the math think about how much we all spend each week at the grocery store while trying to eat fresh healthy meals. Imagine these same delicious meals at a local restaurant or eatery. How much would you spend? I am routinely turned away from trying new recipes for the simple fact that my shelves are not stocked with seasonings & ingredients not used daily. Every meal comes with almost everything you need, items such as: fresh dill, mint leaves, leeks, & fresh parsley. (note: there are some cooking items you may need to have on hand, such as: olive oil, salt and pepper.)
Learn to Cook Differently – Differently being the key word here. I only know what I know… High carb meals consisting of pasta in every form known to man. Ask me how to prepare a low fat – high protein meal and I will give you plain old chicken. What’s so wonderful about Sun Basket is you have someone else work out these details of taste and proportions. Each meal is accompanied by an easy to follow instruction card. Detailed instructions, along with a photo of what your meal will look like once completed. You will notice from my personal photos what the end result looked like, keeping in mind my kitchen skills are still a work in progress. I really never expected my finished product to look exactly like the recipe card.
The Taste – Taste is the most important reason to subscribe to Sun Basket. Each meal I prepared was enjoyable and mouth watering. The freshness of the ingredients was evident in each bite. (…Lemon chicken with roasted carrots, fennel and mint… Pork chops with roasted grapes and pear-chicory salad… Kale, ricotta and carrot gratin with parsley-arugula salad…) Flavorful recipes that overwhelm the sense of taste and smell were created by the Sun Basket, with some help from me. Meal selections are never boring and there is something with every ones taste in mind.
Have Fun – When’s the last time you had fun in the kitchen? Steve an I had a blast cooking these meals together. We spent our time in the kitchen focusing on the food and the company of each other. We took time together to enjoy our creations undistracted from outside entities ( aka… our phones ). Sat down to a nicely prepared dinner, got out the nice dishes, turned off the television, and marveled at the meal we created. We laughed a lot, during our fine dining experience at home…
I’m sure there are more than 6 reasons to be over the moon and stars with Sun Basket. I’m so happy that Sun Basket gave me the opportunity to review their product. My experience with Sun Basket was accompanied with three complimentary meals for my honest reviewing. Only products that I love make their way to Finding Kathy Brown. What’s so wonderful is that Sun Basket is offering $30.00 off your first order. What do you have to lose? If you are a current subscriber to Sun Basket or decide to give them a try, I would love to hear you’re feedback. Please let your voice be heard and lets add to this list of reasons. You may have a perspective that I had not thought of or readers may be interested in. I look forward to your feedback and also let me know about any other subscription based services I should try. Nothing is more exciting than coming home from a hard days work with a surprise box awaiting.
