You all know how much I love to cook and, I do say, I pride myself on getting homemade dinners on the table most nights of the week. But let’s get real, life is busy sometimes and we don’t always have the time to run to the store multiple times per week to grab all the fresh ingredients we need to whip up a spectacular and healthy dinner. (I hope I am not the only one that finds herself at the grocery store every other day). When I was offered the chance to try out some of the Sun Basket Meals, I jumped at it.
Enter Sun Basket Meals
Sun Basket Meal kits are gourmet meals that are sent right to you, ready to cook and get on the table for your family to enjoy. You still have to do the cooking and can also customize the meals further to suit your tastes but the high quality ingredients are all there for you. My kids call them “Master Chef boxes” and for some reason tend to find them more appealing than meals that I cook. Go figure!
We tried this family friendly 2 bean chili mac ‘n’ cheese with lime yogurt first. Funny how eager my son was to taste it even though he swears he “hates beans”. It’s easy to spice it up to your taste level.
Sun Basket offers high quality organic & Non-GMO ingredients as well as grass fed and hormone free meats and seafood. Sun Basket understands that diners have different tastes and offer meals to suit paleo, gluten free and vegetarian meals geared toward families.
What’s different about Sun Basket?
I’ve tried a few other meal delivery services and one thing I noticed with other boxes was how complicated some of the recipes were. The 2 Sun Basket meals I prepared were super easy and were done in around 30 minutes. For a weeknight family meal that’s pretty reasonable in my book.
The variety of flavors is unique. The Miso Ramen Bowls with Braised Tofu and bok choy introduced me to a bunch of Korean spices that were new to me and that I loved. I can’t wait to purchase them and try to replicate the soup myself. My husband and son, who normally would not come near a vegetable soup, both ended up “sampling” a nice helping for themselves. The hard boiled egg suggestion was a great addition and really made the bowl special.
The Sun Basket meals are geared towards families cooking together which has always been something we love to do as a family. The instruction booklet has specific tasks that are suggested just for little chefs to help out with.
The “green” nature of the insulated packaging was like nothing I have ever seen. All the packaging rolls up and can be recycled-kind of cool in my book.
Take out meals and meal delivery services can get expensive for sure. All the Sun Basket family meals are designed to feed 2 adults and 2 kids. You can try Sun Basket at 50% off of your first order this link .
