Sun Basket Meal Delivery

I have wanted to freshen up my kitchen and try new things so I decided to try a couple meal delivery companies. Now, I am reviewing them for you to try your self. If you want to see all the companies that I have reviewed, please click on "meal delivery service" under labels.

Many of you know feeding my family is difficult with one child being celiac, allergic to corn, and can have a few other things like soy and peanuts, then there is me who can not have dairy and corn. We struggled a lot in the beginning, but have got it down pretty good now. However, I had to find the right meal deliver service that we could all eat.

First is Sun Basket:

What I liked:

*Everything is organic. They even use the mayonnaise that our family can eat that tastes yummy!
*It is not quite as expensive as some of the other organic companies. But still a little high at $11 per serving.
*You can choose your meals for your box in which ever category you choose.
*They have a paleo option! That makes things wonderfully easy.
*Portions were great with some left overs.
*This last one is a huge plus!! The meat was all cut for me. I hate cutting meat. I found this to be unique to Sun Basket. Along with everything else being individually wrapped.

*It was also easy to bring a couple meals camping when we had a trip planned and I forgot I had a box coming.
*You do get the whole recipe book and not just the recipes for your meals. So if you want to try something else, you have the recipe.

What I did not like:

*Meals were still on the pricy side (except for the introductory box.)
*Flavors were not as powerful as the other companies.
*Meals could use more greens. (Only because I like every meal to have a green veggie.

Final decision: I will try it again occasionally when my work gets too crazy and I just need some time to catch up because I made wonderful meals without having to shop, plan or prep. It was a huge time saver and my family ate well.

Here is one of the latest meals we loved from Sun Basket, it is a broccoli fritta with arugula salad. Even one of my littles went back for seconds!
