Dinner time can be such a challenging time of day for a busy mom like me. Between working, taking care of my two young kids and looking after the house – cooking a tasty dinner every night can be overwhelming. I love cooking, and am someone who loves embracing a healthy lifestyle by eating nutritious and well-balanced meals. Yet lately it feels like I have been caught in a never-ending cycle of eating the same meals repeatedly or just ordering-in pizza or Chinese food. This is obviously rarely ideal!
If you have been following my website, you know how much I love the concept of meal kits. Using them and receiving pre-portioned recipes of your choice on a weekly basis, makes life so much easier and most definitely saves you time.
Recently, I learned about a new service that is like an upgraded version of a normal meal delivery service – GoReadyMade. This service is really all about ease and convenience.
GoReadyMade delivers fresh and delicious food that is made using all natural ingredients. Everything you receive in your weekly delivery is fully prepared, chilled and ready to heat and serve.
Ordering my GoReadyMade box was super easy. Their website is easy to use and all the meals look so delicious and healthy that I wanted to order them all!
Out of the 20 meals offered on a weekly basis, I eventually decided on eight meals for my first order. When using GoReadyMade you have a few subscription options to choose from and you can select the number of meals you would like to receive on a weekly basis.
I received my GoReadyMade box on Monday morning and was excited to get started with my week filled with easy-to-fix meals! The box was made using recyclable insulating material and the meals were packed with some large ice packs. This ensured that the meals were kept fresh and chilled until they were unpacked and placed in the fridge. The meals themselves were delivered in containers that are safe to heat and wrapped in a labelled sleeve with the meal’s name, heating instructions and nutritional facts of the meal. This style of packaging is incredibly convenient and informative!
The first two dishes my husband and I tried were Smokey Chicken Fajitas and Butter-Basted Chicken. Both were delicious and so easy to make. All you needed to do was remove the top of the container and place the meals in the oven for 15 minutes, or in the microwave for three minutes, and serve.
I’ll be completely honest with you – I was surprised at how delicious and fresh the meals were. The buttered chicken was super moist and tender, the carrots and the creamy mashed potatoes were of a very high quality, and everything felt like it had just been cooked! Also, the chicken and vegetable filling of the fajitas was amazing and super fresh!
The next evening, we tried the Veggie Buddha Bowl and the Soy Glazed Chicken, both of which were very easy to heat. I placed the containers in the oven and continued doing what I was doing until they were ready to serve a little while later. Again, you can also heat the meals via the microwave and save some extra minutes.
We both loved the seasoning of the meat that was included in the buddha bowl, and felt that the rice was perfectly cooked. None of the meals tasted like they had been prepared in advanced but rather like they had been freshly cooked! The soy glazed chicken was also very good, and we loved the delicate flavours of the glaze.
Our positive experience with GoReadyMade continued with every meal that we had that week! My husband even took a Spicy Poblano Chili meal to work for his lunch and heated it in the microwave. He reported back to me that he was the envy of the office that day. There is no doubt that the GoReadyMade culinary team is doing something right. As the meals are prepared, chilled, and packed right before each day’s shipment, you are guaranteed to get meals that are as fresh as can be. Also, their meals contain only ingredients of the highest quality and they are all well balanced and contain minimal fats, so you really feel like you are eating in a healthy way with GoReadyMade.
To top it all off – I cannot stress enough how easy they were to prepare. It really is just a matter of heating and then eating! Delicious!!
GoReadyMade is perfect for busy people who want to eat well-balanced, fresh and delicious meals but don’t have the time to cook such meals from scratch. GoReadyMade believes that just because you have a busy life does not mean you have to eat unhealthy meals. The company goes the extra mile by doing all the hard work for you – so all you need to do is to enjoy your dinner and then have the rest of your evening off.
I highly recommend giving the GoReadyMade service a try. I am sure you won’t be disappointed!
