Hey everyone! I tried Blue Apron and I am so excited to share information about it with you. Blue Apron is a subscription service company that delivers three meals a week to your door. They send you everything to make three dinners for two people. You can pick between a number of options. Such as whether you want fish, meats, or if you are a vegetarian.
I had a little trouble because if you choose that you eat meat, you are also possibly sent pork and beef which I'm not a fan of. I'm also allergic to shellfish and I love vegetarian meals but was curious about the chicken dish. I can't wait for them to open up the options more so we can pick and choose the exact meals we want. I think I will place another order under the vegetarian menu.
The cool thing is that all meals are typically under 500 calories. I did think that the meals I received were heavy on dairy. We had a beef chili, buffalo chicken and pizza. My favorite was the chili.
We actually had two days worth of meals with the chili alone.
The pizza was ehhh. We had little success with the dough and it was interesting. It was a white pizza with egg and arugula on it. I wasn't much of a fan.
The buffalo chicken wings were cool. I really enjoyed the side salad that came with it. For the sour cream, I replaced it with Greek yogurt because I'm not much of a fan ... Oh and I removed the skin on the drumsticks before cooking them.
Overall, it's a cool service and fun. The cost is about $60 a week so you have to know that you will be eating dinner at home and that perhaps you can have leftovers. The leftovers of the chili really made it worth it. And you receive recipe cards so you recreate the meal with store bought ingredients.
I also like that you get sides that are healthy and green and creative. Definitely a great way to spruce of a diet. I get bored with my regulars.
I don't think I will purchase weekly from blue apron but I will definitely check the website weekly to see if the meals are something we want.
Hope this helped you out a bit!!!!
