I am a terrible cook. It doesn’t matter if I follow recipes exactly, none of the dishes I attempt turn out. I either end up with a meal that is super bland or horribly spicy. I either burn everything or undercook it. I am impatient when it comes to chopping things, tend to turn up the flame on the stove too high and forget to stir. I also resent spending the time to prepare a meal. I don’t like to grocery shop, so I never have the proper ingredients available. I’ve found that making substitutions when following a recipe rarely works. Since my husband refuses to cook anything, we were relying heavily on take-out from local restaurants. This got expensive, and it was very unhealthy. I started looking for a more economical and nutritious alternative. I came across a local meal delivery service. It’s wonderfully convenient. I simply went online and set up an account. I was able to choose from different plans for the number of meals we would like to receive each week. Since we both work during the day, I opted for strictly dinners. The first week of the month, I make selections from an expansive menu. There are changing items from week to week. I’m able to choose main courses, side dishes and even desserts. The website provides a listing of all the ingredients as well as sorts of nutritional facts, such as calories and fat content. There are vegetarian options, gluten-free choices and low-calories meals. My husband and I have been pleased with the taste of the meal and the size of the portions. It’s not overly pricey and we can either pick them or get them delivered right to our door. All we need to do is heat them up.
