Review of Sun Basket Meals
by Keleigh May on June 3rd, 2017

ATTENTION READERS: YES that is a raw piece of spinach on my fork- and yes I ate it. And what is even more shocking is I LIKED IT- I liked it enough I ATE SECONDS! But, before we get to all of that, let me first explain how this wonderful moment came to be.
The May's recently had the opportunity to try Sun Basket, a meal delivery service (our first experience with a pre-packaged, cook at home, meal delivery service). What sets Sun Basket apart from the competition is that they are organic, non-gmo, and have paleo, vegetarian, and gluten-free options, and even have meal plans geared towards families with kids!
If you've got a minute, PLEASE check out their website for more information on the farms they partner with, their James Beard award winning chef, and how they only use 100% compostable and recyclable packaging. 

What Comes In A Sun Basket Box?

As we are new to the meal delivery service craze, I couldn't wait to see exactly what was inside! 

Meal 1: Two-Bean Mac and Cheese with Lime Yogurt

Meal 2: Sesame Crusted Chicken with Roasted New Potato Salad

How easy was it to cook?

Very simple and easy! Each meal came with an easy to read recipe card with clear easy to understand instructions and of course the preportioned ingredients. 
Sun Basket even gets the kiddos in on the cooking process with recommended cooking tasks just for them, and a fun word puzzle to do (while the grown ups finish the meal). We did make some easy alterations to the 2 bean chili mac and cheese with lime yogurt (we added ground turkey, and pureed the celery, onions, carrots and tomatoes, because we be picky- and by we I mean me). All the meals can be completely prepared in around 30 minutes, which makes them PERFECT for, well, everybody really!

How Did It Taste?

The Two-Bean Mac 'N' Cheese we gave a soild B+, easily filled up the 3 of us with leftovers for Tucker's lunchbox. 
Our surprise favorite was the Sesame Crusted Chicken Breast with roasted new potato salad. Wow- who knew warm roasted potatoes, with an asian influenced dressing and spinach could be so good!   
The meal was so good, it not only got me to eat SECONDS of raw SPINACH (this was a monumental moment for this picky eater folks) but Tucker and our picky eater neighbor Chloe also liked it enough to eat seconds! Yea- it was that good. 

Try Sun Basket For Yourself!

Summer is here people! Meaning you probably have better things to do than meal plan, and grocery shop with a bunch of kids that would rather be at the pool. Sun Basket to the rescue! And because they just wanted to take their awesomeness to the next level, use this link to receive 50% off your first purchase! Looking to freshen up your dinners (aka get a picky eater to willingly eat spinach), and have it all delivered to your front door? Thanks to Sun Basket, where there's a meal, there's a way!
