Blue Apron is a meal delivery service based on New York City which is a gift for people who hate fiddling around grocery shop. I have seen so many reviews about their services online, so when Blue Apron contacted me to try their meal delivery service, i happily accepted it.
I went on their website and created my menu for the entire week. You can sign up to receive three meals a week which are already pre portioned for you. The meal comes in either two, four or six person portions.
When you order their meal service, you will receive big boxes of already pre portioned fresh ingredients to create your meal. On their website you will find six different menu options in which you can choose from. They have separate meal options for vegetarians as well. All their menu is mouthwatering delicious and takes less than 30 to 35 minutes to prepare.
I picked these three meals and it was delicious.
Chicken Yakiniku with Sesame-Marinated Carrots & Garlic Rice,
Tangelo & Honey-Glazed Salmon with Farro, Apple & Crispy Rosemary &
Falafel Pitas with Roasted Sweet Potato & Yogurt Sauce
The package was neatly arranged and everything is already pre portioned for you to the right size. The produce and meat is as fresh as possible. I got the plan where you get 3 meals, each of which serves 2 people. The cost for this would have been $59.94. They have separate options for family plan which serves 4.
How was my Experience
1) All the foods & their menu were pretty good.
2) The ingredients were fresh and tasted best
3) Recipes given were clear with pictures and easy to follow.
4) Great when you have no time to shop.
Over all my experience with blue apron has been great and i would definitely be using their service again.
