How To Make Healthy Eating Simpler With Sun Basket
Have you ever tried a meal delivery service before? Maybe you’ve been intrigued and thought about trying it, but haven’t committed because it didn’t seem worth it. I feel you, friend.
In general, I don’t talk about food much on my blog because, simply put, I’m not a food blogger. I’m not creative in the kitchen, and I’m also pretty lazy when it comes to making food. That being said, I like my meals to be simple and quick, while still healthy and delicious.
Since The Blissful Mind is all about making your life simpler, I’m always on the hunt for ways I can make things just a little bit easier. That’s where Sun Basket comes in!
Sun Basket Meal Delivery Kit
Sun Basket is a new healthy meal kit service that delivers 3 recipes per week for 2 or 4 people, with organic ingredients and easy, delicious recipes for cooking at home. I was kindly sent a Sun Basket delivery box to try and was totally amazed with the recipes they sent me. And because I was so impressed and wanted you to try it too, there will be a giveaway at the end of the this post! Heck yeah.
I was sent a breakfast frittata with spinach, pepper, and pesto plus a coconut-almond smoothie which tasted legitimately like a creamsicle! I also had pan-roasted salmon with fregola and artichoke pilaf which was amazing, as well as a red lentil soup with arugula, yogurt, sumac, and goji berries. My tastebuds were in heaven.
Their recipes are designed for minimal cleanup and take no more than 30-minutes, which is fantastic because I absolutely hate cleaning up after cooking. Each week, their chef develops an array of quick, healthy recipes to choose from, including Paleo, Gluten-free and Vegetarian options, plus healthy breakfasts. One of the things I love the most about them is that their packaging is 100% recyclable and they offer a free return shipping label so they can recycle the materials for you.
Other reasons I love it:
- The ingredients are pre-measured which means less hassle and less waste
- You get to enjoy the best seasonal ingredients
- You can discover new products and flavors that are hard to find on your own
I know what you’re thinking…are meal delivery services really worth the investment? I’ve definitely been skeptical of meal subscription services in the past because I couldn’t comprehend how it could possibly be worth it to pay that much for three meals every week. After all, I can probably go to the grocery store and put together more meals for way cheaper.
But as soon as I tried the whole meal subscription thing, I was completely hooked.
I realized that it’s actually a complete lifesaver, at least for me. I work from 9 to 5 which means that the last thing I want to do when I come home is cook a meal. You all know I like to keep things healthy, but if I’m not prepared, I will end up eating cereal or waffles for dinner.
In order to make sure the entirety of my paycheck isn’t being taken by food, I think that getting a box delivered every other week works the best for for my needs (and bank account). I’m basically hooked on the meal subscription idea, and I’d 100% recommend Sun Basket if you’re interested in giving it a go.
