Home Chef Delivering Healthy Meals Weekly

Let’s face it we’re all busy. Whether you’re a stay at home mom, a work away from home mom, a childless couple, you have band practice/football practice/cheerleading/dance, we’re all busy. At times the business controls us and we forget to make healthy meals. Half the time we forget to shop for those healthy meals. I’ve seen a few of the home delivery options out there but most of them do not have a gluten free option or they have only one meal option. Home Chef reached out to me and offered a credit that would allow us to try their service. Of course my first thought was the gluten free options. So I used my credit and ordered dinner for our family. You can chose how many servings your meal is for and there are multiple options each week to choose from for your meal. I chose to do a 4 serving meal of balsamic steak. I set delivery for the next week and got a shipping notification when it was passed to UPS. I was then able to track it to see where it was and how it was moving.

Packaging:

The day it arrived we were actually running errands and I was concerned we might have a problem with the food being cold still. We arrived home to find this stunning box on the front porch. It was heavy, sturdy cardboard box. But inside was perfection.

What a beautiful Home Chef Box!

The Food:

The one thing that I loved about the Home Chef service is that every thing comes for the meal. From the butter to the glaze, potatoes and broccoli. Every single thing for the recipe is in the box except simple seasoning like salt and pepper.

The final meal was delicious. I didn’t think the kids would eat the steak with the glaze and I actually made them something else for dinner. It worked great because we had the entire casserole for the next night and no cooking was needed. The bad part? They ate most of my steak.
