While meal prep kits have been popular for some time, a new option is beginning to show up on the market. Instead of sending out partially prepared ingredients in a kit, some meal delivery companies are instead sending out fully prepared, chef-made meals. This type of delivery service is a great option for busy, working adults who don't have time to finish prepping a meal kit every day. Ordering tends to be pretty simple, but there are a few tips and tricks you'll want to follow.
Choose a plan that fits your overall diet.
Do you eat low-carb? Maybe you follow a vegetarian diet. The easiest way to make sure the chef-made meals you order fit your preferred diet is to select a meal plan that is specifically made for your diet. For instance, rather than combing through lists of meals to choose the five that happen to be vegetarian, sign up for a vegetarian meal service. Most chef-made meal companies offer several different diet-specific plans, and if the meal service you're currently considering does not offer a meal plan that fits, you can bet that another service does.
Order fewer meals than there are days.
If you order seven meals a week, then chances are, one or more of them will go to waste. Inevitably, someone will invite you over for dinner one night, or you'll decide to splurge on takeout. If you order six meals a week, that should be plenty. If you are someone with a smaller appetite, you may even want to order five meals a week and plan on eating leftovers one night.
Keep track of the meals you like and those you don't.
As you try each meal, make a note of whether you like it or not. You could even go into a bit more detail and rate each meal on a scale from one to five. This way, after a couple of weeks, you can look back over the meals you've tried and easily remember which ones are your favorites. Most meal services do let you select specific meals to add to your plan, so you can add those favorite meals and enjoy them again and again.
Chef-made meal services give you a convenient way to enjoy professionally prepared food in your own home. With the tips above, you'll have a great time trying, comparing, and enjoying the various meals that are delivered to you. Contact a company like Chef Beaus Klean Kitchen to learn more.
