Behka’s Meal Prep Box Weekend, Reviewed – Worth It? Judge For Yourself
So in the last few months or so, I've kind of lost interest in cooking.
Since it's just me, I tend to get frozen low calorie dinners or just make the bare minimum. I know you wouldn't think it to look at me, but I actually don't eat that much. I kinda snack during the day a little bit and have a small meal for dinner and that's it. It is very rare for me to have two full meals in a day. And often times, if I go out to eat with someone, I end up eating about half of what is given me and if it's good I take the rest home.
So I was a little skeptical about the big trend of food boxes, where they do the meal prep for you and you just cook it up. I mean, how would they possibly be any good, and aren't they kind of pricy? Well, I decided to bite the bullet and try one. Now please keep in mind, I did not contact this company professionally - I'm just doing this as a customer. I am not being compensated for this one jot. If I like it, great. If not...well, you'll know it.
The one I decided to go with proclaimed themselves to be the least inexpensive, so I decided to give them a shot with one box. After all if I don't like it, I can just cancel, right? Right. The company I chose is called EveryPlate. I ordered from them a few weeks ago, planned the day the box would come, chose how many portions I'd get, and decided I'd make a weekend out of it. Each one of these meals is designed for two, so I had about half and the rest were socked away as leftovers. Here's how it went.
My Food Box Weekend
So there you have it. My weekend in a food box. Would I recommend it? Sure. Especially if you can get the deal (I can get some of you a free box btw if you email me, part of their promo deal). The meals were fairly easy, and a good 95% of what you need to cook em up was in the box (not cooking oil or butter or salt and pepper, that kind of stuff). I mean, not every meal was stellar, but one was amazing, one was good, and one was bland. So overall, I'd say that's enough of a win for me to try a second box. Will I be doing it next week like they want? Heck No. I put it on pause for a couple weeks, I'll try again next month. Still, the meals had easy to follow recipes, good/fresh ingredients, and were tasty for the most part.
Now we just have to see how well the leftovers hold up.
