          I've been trying out several meal delivery services recently, since I love the idea of having chef inspired meals delivered to you with just enough ingredients so there's no waste and easy to follow instructions so the recipes are basically fool proof. Most recently I tried Plated, which is another great option and so far has offered the most flexibility and variety (you can choose 2-4 meals from several different options).

Here's an overview of Plated
  • Plated delivers everything you need to create chef-designed recipes, making it simpler and more fun to cook at home.
  • You get a weekly box of fresh and seasonal ingredients, pre-portioned for the recipes you choose, so you can create great food with less effort.
  • Plated exclusively source meats raised without antibiotics, sustainable seafood, and fresh produce. Everything arrives pre-portioned to minimize food waste and prep time.
  • Once you sign up, you can add, swap, or remove recipes or skip deliveries anytime.

          The sign up process was very quick and easy - I signed up online and chose a delivery day, number of meals, and entered any dietary restrictions or preferences. I opted for a Friday delivery and chose Pork Tonkatsu with Cherry Salsa and Caprese Roasted Chicken Wraps.
          The food arrived mid day Friday, packed in plenty of ice so it would've been fine if I hadn't been home for several hours. Each component was labeled so that it was clear which entree it was for, and the recipes came on individual cards with detailed instructions and pictures.

           Both meals were delicious and very easy to prepare with the instructions provided. There is prep work involved, but not so much that it would prevent me from making these on a weeknight after work. I also loved that the recipe cards included nutritional information on each dish (~600-700 calories).

           Now for the best part - I have an chance for you to try out Plated! My readers get two free meals with a purchase of four - redeem them here  to get started!
