Being a single working mom is a tricky balance. I have to avoid burning out while doing the classic 9 to 5 grind and ensuring my seven-year-old Kevin has all his needs met – it’s a lot! When I looked at where I could save time, using meal kits in place of cooking from scratch seemed right, but most meal kits that sold the promise of healthy, affordable convenience still required exhausting, time-consuming prep and cleanup. Well, except for one.
With Home Chef’s Oven Ready and Fast & Fresh meals, Kevin and I get delicious, nutritious, fresh meals that don’t require chopping, cooking, or cleanup. It’s a lifesaver for my most tired nights without sacrificing quality or flavor for convenience. All our meals’ pre-portioned, preservative-free ingredients arrive in trays that I can slide right in the oven or pop in the microwave. Once it’s mealtime, we toss the plastic cover, and once we’re done eating, the tray goes, too – no pots and pans to wash!
We have so many options, too – Home Chef’s menu has meals that are smoky, sweet, savory, umami, or anything else your taste buds desire. And as a carb-conscious gal, I love that Home Chef includes low-carb and low-calorie options, lets me double up on protein, and offers scrumptious vegetarian options that chicken-loving Kevin gobbles up, too.
All of this is far better than tasteless, tiny grocery store to-go meals and greasy, expensive takeout or delivery. It’s also way more convenient since Home Chef automatically delivers our fresh meals right to our doorstep without us getting in the car. And it’s beyond affordable: Home Chef plans start at $6.99 per meal, an unbeatable price point for appropriately portioned, entirely healthy lunches and dinners.
Although Home Chef gives the best possible bang for your buck, there are occasional weeks when we don’t use it. The good news is, we don’t pay for those weeks! Home Chef lets us pause our meals with just a click. Canceling is just as easy, but we’ll never do that.
If anything, when we pause Home Chef, we miss it deeply. Kevin is obsessed with the Oven-Ready Carolina BBQ Chicken, and I constantly crave the Fast & Fresh Pomodoro Pulled Pork Cavatappi. We’ve never eaten so happily, healthy, conveniently, and flavorfully all at once!
If you too are craving both flavor and convenience, now’s the perfect time to sign up for Home Chef. Its one-of-a-kind $90 off over your first four orders (that means 10 free meals in your first four deliveries!) is sure to expire soon, so sign up now for the best possible prices on convenient, delicious, family-friendly meals. Your stomach – and your wallet – will thank you.
