Happy hump day! So todays post is a review of a new service I have tried last week called Blue Apron. I love to cook, I like trying new recipes and producing home cooked meals, I don’t always enjoy meal planning, list making, shopping etc. I often thought how nice would it be to have a service who took some of the hardwork out of it and voila we have Blue Apron. I had been meaning to try this for a while but with moving etc the time had never been right. When I got my hands on a coupon I thought lets give this a try. Now I am aware that Blue Apron is not the only place that provides this service but from what I have read to date Blue Apron has good feedback. It is a service which sends you in refrigerated boxes with fresh produce to provide meals for your family. You have two basic options 2 meals for 2 covers (2 person plan) or 4 meals for 4 covers (family plan.) I went with the latter because I need leftovers to send with Mr L for his lunch. Blue Apron explain that the meals are farm-fresh, seasonal produce, meat and poultry with no added hormones and sustainably-sourced seafood. So if like my family you are conscious about where your food comes from this is for you. As well as the fresh produce you are provided with extensive recipe cards which guide you in producing each meal.
A Photo Diary Of My Blue Apron Experience
I have Blue Apron delivering this week, mainly because I have been so impressed. The app and website have a great interface, clear and easy to use. The service is first class, every time I have emailed the response has been prompt and effective. I will add, this service is not for someone who has little or no interest in cooking, it does require prep. If you are looking for a prepared meal service this is not for you. If you are a family or couple pushed for time who like wholesome good food and enjoy eating around the table this is for you. If you are in a meal rut and like some insipiration this also may help. The meal cards, provide extensive photographic and written method so if your wanting to improve your cooking this would also help. I really wish they had this service when my husband and I were both working. This would be a great gift idea for new parents or a family or couple on the go. I have been so impressed I intend to keep the service up, I will use in weeks where we have lots going on. If you wish to cancel or miss a week to do so is very easy and straightforward.
My husband and I are definitely planning on trying soon! I think we will love it!
That’s great, it is worth trying. Thanks for visiting.
I recently tried Hello Fresh & thought about trying Blue Apron too but my biggest complaint/problem is that they don’t have options for food allergies. I get that it’s hard, but I got the Hello Fresh box free from someone, but ended up buying groceries to replace the items that I couldn’t eat with versions that I could. :-/
Yes it seems a shame they can not cover allergies. I am sure they will do very soon. Thanks for visiting.
Definitely going to give as a gift and hopefully try myself. Thanks for testing for all of us!
Blue Apron sounds so interesting! I’ve read a lot about it, but still haven’t given it a try. I think it would be the perfect way to spend a fun date night at home. I love trying out new recipes!
Yes what a great idea. It is surprisingly labor intensive, so a great thing to share.
All of these dishes look really yummy!!! I have been wanting to try Blue Apron because I have heard such good reviews on it. I think I will try it out soon!
All those meals look great! I’ve done Blue Apron before but we cancelled it. It’s fun to use to switch things up though!
Yes your right but there is a lot of prep involved. Thanks for stopping by.
