Cooking at home has really been on the uptick over the past year. Between being “stuck” at home so to speak, trying to save money and cure boredom all at the same time – it seems like everyone has been having a little fun experimenting with different meal ideas, and trying new recipes at home. But even that can wear thin after a while. How many different ways can we cook chicken? Enter meal kits, curated to your liking and delivered to your home!
What Is It?
You might be familiar with meal kits, as the idea has been around for a while now. Home Chef allows you to subscribe to their delivery service, with a variety of options. Featuring fresh weekly meal kits, these can be customized to according to what you like, what you don’t like, and what you simply can’t have – from food allergies, to vegetarian dishes. The best part is that these start as low as $6.99 per serving, so you can still work within your weekly or monthly food budget. This is also a great way to cure food boredom, especially if you’ve had it with the same 3 meals on repeat every week. The variety here is amazing. We’re talking everything from quick and easy, and grill ready, to more detailed options like crispy ahi tuna with basil pesto cream, steak with Tuscan corn sauté, roasted beet and goat cheese risotto, etc…The menu changes weekly! You can also enter your email address and have free recipes and special offers delivered right to your inbox.
You can get yourself set up with a program in three quick steps. Simply start off by choosing the plan that’s best for you. Everything from carb conscious, calorie counting, vegetarian, quick and simple (yes, please!) and more. So it’s easy to find something that works with your dietary needs and scheduling (Need to take a week off? No problem). Then customize what you chose. You can upgrade, swap, or double up on proteins on certain meals. Then, enjoy! Every Monday, you’ll receive an email with 20+ meal options to choose from. Just make your choice by Friday (at noon CST) of that week, or go with their recommendations for you.
With so much to choose from, we’re definitely looking to experiment and change things up. Here’s what we’re looking to try:
- The Grill Ready Option. Toss It On The Grill! – See It Here
- Their Entrée Salads For Some Next Level Greens – See It Here
- The 15 Minute Meal Kit For Meals On The Double – See It Here
Looking to introduce this idea to someone as a gift? After all what’s better than an oven ready option, with little to no prep, toss it in the oven, and have dinner ready? Receive pre-portioned, fresh ingredients packaged up, along with an oven-safe tin. No mess really is the gift that keeps on giving. Their gift card options will allow them to try out meals for a week – 3 meals for 2 people, all the way up to 4 weeks – which includes 12 meals for 2 people.
Are There Promo Codes or Coupons?
We don’t have any exclusive coupons, or promo codes over here, and were hard pressed to find anything that actually worked out on the internet (booo!). With that being said, you actually can find coupons and discounts directly on their website. So all in all, there are ways to save. You can save 55% percent (score!) on your first box if you are an student, currently enrolled with a verified status on Student Beans. If you’re a member of the military, a first responder, a student, a teacher, or a nurse, you can verify your status with ID.me, and get a 50% discount off your first order, and 10% off subsequent orders. Lastly, active subscribers can be a part of their referral program, and earn credit for every referral that signs up! Invite your pals to join by sending an email invitation.
