5 Reasons Why We Love Blue Apron

If you have been following along my blog, you already knew I partnered with Blue Apron. If not and you wanted to know my first experience with them read it here . Without further introduction, here are the reasons why we love Blue Apron .

1. Convenient – I enjoy cooking but I don’t like grocery shopping and sometimes meal planning is so tasking especially when you have so many things going on in your head. There were times when Steve and I spend atleast a half hour just trying to figure out what to eat or what to make for dinner. If we can’t figure something out, we spend another half hour again figuring out where to eat and what each of us have a taste for. It gets kinda stressful and frustrating sometimes and the result ? We end up opening a box of cereal for dinner. That’s why it is always important for me to do a weekly meal plan and with Blue Apron, meal planning and grocery shopping is convenient and stress free. You get to pick which menu/recipes you want for that week, they gather the ingredients for each recipes and delivered to your door, sealed and fresh. For me, there is nothing more convenient opening a box filled with fresh ingredients and all organized accordingly.

2. Fresh Ingredients – I am not a good shopper sometimes when it comes to produce, call me stupid but sometimes I didn’t realize I picked out a tomato that is going to get over ripe in a couple days. Blue Apron sent me ingredients and spices that are good quality and fresh. My meats are all organic, lean and good quality.

3. Delicious meals made from scratch –  I love the way they compose their recipe catalog .The instructions is very detailed down to a T , very organized and it has pictures. So, it is really easy to follow them. Their meals and recipes are curated by chefs and it is always different every week. I have to say this Enchilada recipe is delicious. It is kind of on a spicy side but you can tone that down by just using a little jalapeno or even not at all, it would still taste delicious. I think the major kick ass here that gives that flavor is the mixture of the roasted tomatillos and onions being sauteed together.

4. Get us to try new recipes of different cuisines and cooking techniques – Every week Blue Apron have new recipes, probably some of them you haven’t tried or heard before. If you are adventurous, they have a lot of selections of different cuisines but they also have a selection comfort food or the common food that most Americans eat.

5. Waste less ingredients – The ingredients are properly portioned sized according to each recipes. There were so many times, I bought ingredients for a certain recipe that I end up throwing the rest of it because it can’t be use anymore or sometimes I don’t feel like cooking the same kind. It turned bad in the fridge that I have to get rid of it. It was such a waste and I hate it because that’s money down the drain.

Those are the reasons why we love Blue Apron and ofcourse, we wanted to try  them again!

    I never tried this kind of service. I am quite paranoid and I have to touch my food before buying it.

    My dad recently just tried Hello Fresh and he loves it!! We are thinking of going in together and getting 2 meals each because the minimum is 3 meals per week! I can’t wait to try it!

    I have seen many of these services on FB and other sites. It seems like a great idea for just the reasons you posted. I’m not sure, however, if it is cost effective. I may give those 3 free meals a try…thanks.

    I’ve talked to my husband about trying the home meal delivery service but with 6 people in the house, it would be quite expensive after a while. It does look fantastic though.

    I love meal kits for new ideas for dinner. Do they have vegetarian options?

    It was such a great idea that the recipe and the fresh ingredients were all in 1 box. There is a lot of times that I really don’t know what to cook for dinner, Blue Apron could be a great alternative.

    I have never tried a food subscription service before. It’s great that you get the exact quantity of ingredients and you don’t end up wasting food.

    I’ve always wanted to try this, but always worried it wouldn’t be cost-effective or filling enough for our family of 5…

    We subscribed for a very long time and absolutely LOVED it! We stopped our subscription to save money but you know what … we spend more at the store! We need to get back to this!

    We have something similar in the UK called Hello Fresh – I love it as it’s teaching my kitchen-phobic boyfriend how to cook. Even he can follow the recipes and he’s rubbish in the kitchen. Every week I get one dinner cooked for me now!

    Out of all of the food delivery services, Blue Apron is by far my favorite! I’ve never had anything but excellent products sent – never a bruised tomato or funky looking meat. If I could afford it, I’d definitely get it continually!

    I think it’s an awesome service. I love cooking but it’s not always convenient to drive to grocery to pick up ingredients. This is a really awesome way to prepare dinner without having to run to the store. Perfect for busy nights.
