Delivered to your door: how meal kits can help you eat well right now (Sponsored)



From convenience to culinary variety, we all know the perks of meal kits - particularly in times like these. But what about the downsides?
Meal kits bring you all the ready-to-cook ingredients you need straight to the door. In uncertain times such as the present – with empty supermarket shelves and governments encouraging quarantines – the value of meal kits is clearer than ever.

However, from expats to locals alike, there are plenty of us out there who have reservations about meal kits. Aren’t they expensive? Don’t they produce loads of food waste – and not to mention all of the packaging?

And then there’s the necessary cooking skills. What about those of us who haven’t spent the last decade diligently watching each and every cooking show with a pad and pen, who somehow seem to mess up everything in the kitchen – even a piece of toast?

Together with our partners Hello Fresh, The Local have dished up some tasty facts on meal kits.

I tried this about 6 months ago (Hello Fresh). Beautifully presented menu and ingredients. It was the 3-meal vegetarian special offer starter pack.

Although the menus give cooking times like ½ hour, it took me an hour to separate the items all sent in one box into the various meals using the menus!

All 3 menus were good, although if you are used to shopping for ingredients rather than ready meals and have cook books, there is little advantage other than the time saved shopping.

They spoke English on the phone. But be aware if you do not stop deliveries they will keep sending you them every week.

Ideal for those working who want to eat healthily, but for us pensioners, there is no massive advantage...

Yeah i get it for a certain demographic..
But i like to cook, i like to experiment.. For me a recipe is just a idea, a suggestion, i play around with it and make it my own.

I can't imagine only having a set bunch of ingredients to work with :-)
