Brought to you by You Plate It
Dinner time for my hubby and I is often the first chance we get to have an uninterrupted conversation and catch up on our day, but it’s also the 4th meal of the day that I’ve prepared and coming up with new and exciting ideas can be a massive struggle.
I’m always looking for ways to make life easier so when we heard about You Plate It from friends, I placed an order and a box full of super fresh ingredients along with two delish recipes was delivered on a Sunday afternoon in a specially insulated box, so we didn’t even need to be home to accept the delivery.
It meant my Sunday usually spent meal planning for the week ahead, was free to enjoy with my hubby and girls. Yay!
Having all the ingredients for meals to cook, along with the recipe and step by step instructions – I had a big head start on the week, and rather than having to rush to the shops to pick up last minute groceries – I took the my girls to the park.
I really enjoyed cooking something different and my hubby loved having something new and exciting for dinner. We ordered a Couples Box and had yummy stuffed snapper with couscous and marinated tomato salad one night and a Chinese chicken salad the next – YUM!
There’s so much to love about You Plate It.
Delivery is free, there are a choice of 6 recipes every week that are fresh, healthy and delicious but not complicated. Meals can be cooked in under 35 minutes and I really love that there’s no wastage, if you need half a bunch of mint for a recipe – that’s exactly what you get, you don’t end up with leftover ingredients wilting in the fridge and there’s no need to use measuring cups and jugs which means less washing up. Bags that ingredients come in for each recipe are compostable which also gets a great big green thumbs up!
Recipes are super easy to follow, with six step by step instructions which includes photos – so even the person who claims they can’t cook has no excuse (I’m looking at you hubby!).
All produce is sourced from local suppliers like Mondo’s, Partridges and local WA Farmers which is something I’m really passionate about, plus it means everything is super fresh.
You Plate It is also really cost effective, when I told my hubby how much it was he couldn’t believe it – I would even go as far as saying ordering your meals through You Plate It could save you money. I know whenever I pop into the shops for just a ‘few things’, I walk out with at least $20 more groceries than I need every time (hello chocolate).
Chinese Chicken Salad
But the biggest bonus about You Plate It is time, knowing all the ingredients for dinner are in the fridge ready to go, I loved having free time with my girls and not feeling stressed or rushed at meal time.
I had a stess free afternoon and still prepared a fresh and healthy home cooked meal for my hubby.
It’s win win!
I am SO excited to extend this exclusive special offer to all my lovely readers. When the boys first sent this through to me, I had to double check it was correct – but they are really keen for people to experience You Plate It for themselves.
