Let's be honest, weeknight meal planning can sometimes be a chore, time consuming and even a bit stressful. So when I heard about Sun Basket, a weekly food delivery service, I immediately thought, "what a great idea." Meals are only $11.49 per person and include high quality produce, and meats and seafood which are sustainable sourced from top West Coast farms.
Sun Basket definitely makes meal planning easier. Creative and easy to follow recipes are posted online a week in advance and include photos that will tempt your taste buds. Everything you need to prepare the recipes is per-measured, packaged in individual bags, and shipped directly to your door. Which means no waste and no unnecessary trips to the grocery story for forgotten items.
You can choose from several meal plans including, paleo, gluten free and vegetarian. All recipes, which are created by Chef Justine Kelly, are nutritionist approved, approximately 500-800 calories per serving and take about 30 minutes to prepare.
I recently had the opportunity to try Sun Basket and I loved it. We had a stress free week of delicious new recipes and were able to make good use of the time we saved not having to meal plan. The dishes were all very tasty and simple to make.
I tried the: Pork blade with roasted sweet potatoes and olive & bell pepper salsa.
What I liked most about this dish was how flavorful it was and how easy it all came together. Yes, there was a minimal amount of chopping but other than that...it was cooked and plated in no time.
Steak with artichoke butter, braised green beans and bell peppers.
This dish was bursting with flavor, so much so I didn't even miss the carbs! Artichoke butter is new to me but something I will be making again.
Skillet "poached" eggs with chard.
This was probably my favorite meal. Although listed as a breakfast option I made it for dinner with some crusty bread and it was delicious.
Sun Basket is perfect for young, newly married couples, those that like to try new things and those that just want a break from the hassle of weekly meal planning. Basically just about everyone would enjoy a Sun Basket delivery.
