When it comes to our day-to-day lives, convenience is key. Everyone is so busy with work and other commitments, and this is why a lot of us fall short when it comes to our eating habits. How do some people manage to eat a home cooked dinner every evening?
The secret has been revealed: Meal kits.
The meal kit industry has been booming for years now and it shows no signs of slowing down. One of the top dogs in the Canadian Market is Chefs Plate, which has thousands of 5 star reviews. Our editors decided to do some research to see if it's all that great.
Here's what we found:
It's Super Affordable: Chefs Plate starts at just $8.99 per meal. It's much more affordable than takeout but still so convenient. With all the ingredients they supply, some recipes end up being far less expensive than buying everything individually at a grocery store. Not to mention, nothing goes to waste because of their perfect portions!
"I have really enjoyed this service from Chefs Plate and will continue to use it for the foreseeable future. It is truly awesome! I save so much money and the food is delicious! I am learning better ways to save and to meal plan. My son is also learning how to cook and he is learning so much as well!" - Kate
Huge Variety Of Meals: There are 15 different options every week spanning lots of cuisines. Pick between classics like Chicken Parmesan and Meatloaf, or experiment with the likes of Spicy Korean Beef Tacos and Za'atar Pork Burgers.
"The recipes are very tasty and easy to prepare. I find they take longer to make if one person is doing the work. The portions are generous and we often get 2 extra meals from a 2 serving recipe. I like the variety of recipes to choose from each week." - Tracy
Record-Fast Cooking Time: Because all of the ingredients come pre-portioned and ready to be cooked, there's very little prep involved in cooking with Chefs Plate. Most meals take about 30 minutes to cook, some even only take 15 minutes (no, really!), like the delicious Curried Beef and Golden Rice.
"My husband And I adore chefs plate. It's great for saving time in the kitchen working and having a child at home. My toddler loves all the meals. No waste and makes cooking fun and simple." - Larvae
High Quality Ingredients: The ingredients are top quality with Chefs Plate. The vegetables are super fresh and the meat is excellent. Their packaging ensures the ingredients stay fresh while travelling.
"Chef's Plate provides a number of meal options ranging from mild to very spicy. As I am a single male who has not cooked much in the past I find the instructions extremely useful. The products are fresh and are delivered with ice packs so there is minimal likelihood of the items spoiling, if I am not home at the delivery time. " - Jim
Extremely Convenient: Signing up for Chefs Plate is quick and easy. You can skip, pause, or cancel your subscription at any time. Their simple step-by-step instructions make all the recipes foolproof.
