My Experience Trying the Sunbasket Meal Delivery Service #sunbasket #mealdelivery #healthyandeasy

I recently had the opportunity to try Sunbasket's meal delivery service, and I have to say I am very impressed! I especially loved that Sunbasket provides two different meal options available for ordering: (1) Meal Kit recipes AND (2) Fresh & Easy ready-to-eat meals. That flexibility allowed me cook when I had time to spend in the kitchen...and simply reheat a delicious meal in the oven or microwave on my most hectic days.

Sunbasket's tagline, "Your Kind of Healthy," immediately caught my eye. To that end, Sunbasket offers customers a customized meal selection process. Each week's menu selections can be filtered for eight popular nutrition plans -- including Diabetes-Friendly, Carb-Conscious, and Vegetarian. Menus can be further filtered to focus on...or avoid...specific kinds of foods. 

From there, Sunbasket filters each week's menu options to offer customers recipes that match their personal dietary needs. The last step is to select the number of menu items you want included in your box...between 2 and 5...and whether you want 2 or 4 servings for each selected meal. 

I loved seeing just the menu items that matched my personal eating habits...such a time saver! I follow a Carb-Conscious eating plan these days, so filtered for that. I also eat mostly chicken and seafood...and I've reduced my consumption of beef and other red meat. Based on this individualized input, Sunbasket recommended several delicious options for my four-meal (two servings each) box. I selected two easy, healthy recipes: 

  • Migas with Crisp Tortilla Strips, Chorizo, Eggs, and Salsa Verde
  • Mediterranean Honey-Harissa Salmon with Apple-Cabbage Slaw
My box arrived at my door on my selected delivery date. My two recipe meals were neatly organized with all ingredients needed to cook them packed inside of two labeled paper bags. 
The Fresh & Ready meals arrived in ready-to-bake containers that were sealed in plastic for freshness. Everything was securely packed and kept perfectly cool via frozen gels packs. Even in the Texas late Summer heat, my box contents remained perfectly cold.

Both of the recipe meals I cooked were delicious, and they made enough food for me to enjoy dinner + lunch the next day. The salmon meal came with every ingredient needed to cook a gourmet-quality meal in about 30 minutes. Sunbasket provided the perfect amount of fresh organic produce, salmon portions, and seasonings and sauces to make two servings. Easy prep...and zero waste! The only ingredient I had to add from my kitchen pantry was a bit of olive oil to sautee the squash. This was a delicious meal with a bit of exotic flavor. Hightly recommend!
I also selected two Fresh & Ready Meals:

  • Roasted Chicken Breast with Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce and Broccoli
  • Chicken Chow Mein with Broccoli, Mushrooms, and Toasted Garlic
Both meals warmed up in my oven in about 20 minutes, but the microwave heating option is even quicker! The Fresh & Ready meal portions were filling, and the quality rivaled anything I could order from a restaurant. Both Fresh & Ready meals were head and shoulders above a typical frozen meal -- especially the chow mein. Zero prep, healthy ingredients, and delicious taste? It doesn't get better...or easier...on a busy day!

Bottom line: I love my Sunbasket experience! The weekly menus are customized to the way that *I* like to eat, and the food tastes delicious. I can pick the delivery day that works best for me each week...or even skip a week or two if that works best for my schedule. Total flexibility!  Prices for Meal Kit items start at $11.49 per serving, while Fresh & Ready meals start at $9.99 each.
