Some people really love to put together meal plans, grocery shop, and get food prepped for the week ahead. But for others, doing all of that extra work takes too much time. Thankfully, meal kit subscription services have gained popularity, making that process a lot easier for hungry customers.
Since most people are motivated to get healthy at the start of a new year, popular subscription delivery service Blue Apron has partnered with WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) to offer customers healthy meal options. Each meal stays true to the WW eating plan and lists the specific SmartPoints for each meal. Some are as low as four SmartPoints per serving!
We got to try WW x Blue Apron meals
A few of our lucky editors had the chance to try some meals from this delicious collaboration. Here’s what they thought.
“As someone who wouldn’t even know how to start a diet, having fresh, portioned ingredients sent right to my door would be a huge help,” said associate editor Caroline Stanko, who tried the Seared Chicken and Chipotle Yogurt with Spicy Orange Slaw and Potatoes. “I liked it a lot because it was something that I would never look up and try to make myself. Now that I have the recipe card, I would definitely make it again.”
“I made the Beef & Vegetable Stir-Fry with Sesame-Sambal Sauce,” said Emily Parulski, Taste of Home‘s engagement editor. “Overall, it was a great weeknight dinner for me and my husband. It was a familiar dinner that’s right up our alley.”
Emily loved that she got to try a new-to-her ingredient without having to buy an entire bottle. How did they like it? “I’ll likely pick up some sambal hot sauce so I can make this dish again!” she said.
We’re sensing a theme!
