Ready to Eat Deliverable Meals

Thoughts? Every tried them? Cooking was never my milieu. I can only assume it would be cheaper than delivery/pick-up. Possibly healthier.

Are you from India? Or did you just land in the USA by boat??

Even the better quality options become unappetizing after a few weeks. I was enrolled in a very expensive Zone Chef diet and enjoyed some items more than others. Breakfasts were interesting (a ball of ricotta with nuts and some honey). Lunch was light salads with sliced chicken or steak and a few nuts or maybe chèvre . Dinner sometimes included roast monkfish, which is sometimes called poor man’s lobster. It was very mild and firm, pretty delicious. Snacks were things like yogurt with nuts and berries (lots of blueberries).

I did lose weight. I remember a huge stacks of the re-usually trays accumulated fast. They left these meals on my doorstep very early each morning.

Factor is great, but it's expensive.

I tried Hello Fresh for 2 weeks. Best was to describe it was like airplane food.

Someone is giving me a gift card to either Hello Fresh or Blue Apron. I get to decide which. Any input, Dataloungers?

I can't believe these mail-order meals are anything but wasteful in terms of climate impact (no matter what they say in their advertisements). Also, even though they talk about how healthy they are, in the end they are PROCESSED foods that you finish at home.

Don't believe the hype!

Cook Unity is really good and affordable.

But agreed about the packaging. Lots us waste.

Ready-to-eat meals from the local deli are better. No preservatives. Buy a few at a time and you'll have four or five dinners. Much better than having the MREs - and that's what they taste like: military Meals Ready to Eat

I had to go on a no-sugar, no-gluten, no-I-don't remember what, no-fun diet for a month while doctors did some tests. The delivered meals were perfectly edible but limited, nothing special, and a freaking fortune.

They never worked for me. I tried several times. If it wasn’t that they generated enormous amounts of packaging it was because they didn’t taste good or they were so much more expensive than my rudimentary cooking would’ve been or I didn’t want to eat whatever was left when it was the only thing I had, so I ended up eating pizza instead and wasting the food and money.

It was just always something.
