I don't' know about you, but this was my very first time trying out a food delivery kit that gets sent to your home. There are so many box kits out there these days from beauty boxes to fitness boxes and even food meal delivery kits. Well, I was sent a meal kit from Sun Basket to try out this past week, and to my surprise, I was pleasantly pleased.
Just the Idea of ordering food online sometimes scares me especially if its meat and vegetables. I like to smell my food and get a good look at it before I purchase it. However, I did my due diligence and Sun Basket Food Delivery kits do have many great reviews online.
So I was like, what the heck. I'll give it try. Trying something once couldn't hurt me, could it? 😉
Well, just so you know Sun Basket is actually a great company, in fact, they are a healthy meal kit service that delivers top of the line top sustainably-sourced meat items. They use only organic fruits and vegetables for you to cook with for your family or significant other. They have many other options for you to choose from, which means you are able to order different meal kits that are either Paleo, Gluten-free, Vegetarian and even a Family option.
The Family option though is for a family of four at the moment, I spoke to a Sun-basket representative and they told me this coming year they will options for a family of 6. Which is something I need since I have four boys. But that didn't stop me from trying out the kit. I just added a little more items that I already had on hand to make it stretch.
Hey, it was sent to me, so you do what you gotta do.
As of now they even have a breakfast option, but I'm not at the level yet. Breakfast is something I can do at home on my own. Since they did send me two of the Family meal options to try out which are all kid friendly and tested to be easy to cook and clean up well.
“Partnered with moms meet” To try out this delicious family kit of organic prepared for you meals! My kids loved this dish and it was a real hit, the Vietnamese steak stir-fry with jasmine rice. Trying out another dish tonight. (Chicken) Post coming soon! #momsmeet #sunbasket #sunbasketmeals #mealplan #organicfood #familymeals #momsmatter #lifestyleblogger
Something else that is really cool, is that all the recipes are healthy 30-mintue recipes designed for minimal cleanup and tested to taste well and be kid friendly. All recipes are developed by an award-winning San Franciso Chef and Chef Tyler Florence helps with one of the recipes each week for the family kit. In fact, the food kit's are sent in 100% recyclable packaging.
When you do order you are able to choose any recipe you like and I think up to two a week depending on which kit you decide to go with. You won't have to worry about the food because my food was sent very quick and very well insulated and cold when It got delivered to my front door. They even have the food delivered in the evening, to make sure it is not sitting outside your door for too long!
How cool it that!
My two meals that I chose was the Vietnamese steak stir-fry with jasmine rice and the Sesame-crusted chicken with roasted new potato salad.
I made the both dishes the same week, back to back. The first one with steak stir-fry was a huge hit in my home. My kids loved it so much that I plan to make the dish again in the future. Like I said before I had to add some more rice to it since I am feeding a family of six, not four. The meat stretched and the dish was very flavorful and really easy to cook.
The rice I cooked in my Rice cooker and everything else I made in the pan, once finished I topped the rice with the stir-fry and served. It was delicious!!!
The Sesame-Crusted Chicken with the roasted potatoes salad sounded and looked great in the photos, but for some reason, I could not get the crust to stay on the chicken while it cooked in the pan. I did the best I could and it smelled great. However, we ended up eating everything else with the chicken. Except the sesame panko crust did not stay on like I wanted it too. My kids still ate it though and it still had great flavor.
All in all, I was impressed with Sun-Baskets Food Delivery Kits, I'm not one to order too much food online. But the service was delivered quickly to my home. The items all were fresh, and the food recipes had great flavor with a restaurant vibe that you are able to make all from the comfort of your home.
Despite, the one issue I had with sesame seeds. I am curious to try out a couple more food items, especially for days when you don't want to cook and want to try something different. You are not stuck in any month to month contracts, in fact, you just order when you order, and you cancel membership at any time.
Sun-basket is really on to something here and I think they are going to be around for a very long time.
So you know if you do decide to try them you will be able to get your first three meals free!
