I’m joining the ranks of those who meal kit. Meal kits are for the the smart-minded, time-strapped, and health-conscious. Its what adults do, they choose efficiency over chaos, homemade over takeout–at least that’s what I gathered from all the meal kit reviews I read online. So of course I joined the herd.
But after a few trial periods with a handful of companies, I was disappointed and cancelled my subscription. Mainly because they were overly labor intensive, which ultimately seemed to be in contrast to what I needed from a meal kit.
I needed a meal kit that could cut through the busy-life factor. One that doesn’t involve too much prep or too many techniques. And if it happens to be organic—BONUS! If it happens to be something my 10-year-old, Cole, can also pull off with some assistance from me—I’m ALL IN!
Enter One Potato, a meal kit for people like me: minimal work, maximum pay off. And thank GAWD that Cole loves to be in the kitchen. I have Geoffrey Zakarian to thank for that (nevermind that both his parents are food bloggers – ???). Tuesday’s have gone from blah to awesome, because that’s when we get our meal kit. It’s a little like Christmas getting that refrigerated box of fresh ingredients.
It is by far, my favorite meal-kit service for its creative simplicity. Most importantly the ingredients are organic and everything comes pre-chopped and pre-measured, allowing for each meal to be ready in 30 minutes or less. A big hooray to that and gaining back some much needed time every evening and to this Black Bean Soup and Quesadilla meal that my family loved!
On a side note: This is NOT a sponsored post, nor was I given any product in exchange for a review. I ordered it, loved it and wanted to share my experience to help anyone else that has been disenchanted with meal-kits.
