Dinner is a hard meal to tackle, when working a regular 9-5/40hr work week plus trying to get my triathlon training in. I have a 30min-1hr commute each way depending on traffic. After training, work, driving, and the simple necessities in life, like sleep, where is the time to buy groceries and cook? It makes it really difficult. So, it’s only brilliant that there are plenty of companies out there trying to help us all be healthy and cook at home, by making it convenient and delivering meals straight to your door.
Sunbasket is the latest “meals to doorstep” service I have tried. I love trying different ones to see how they all compare. Here’s what you need to know about Sunbasket:
- 3 meals per week – for 2, 4, or 6 people
- You can choose your meals. They have a selection that you can choose from, which is pretty cool, to ensure you like them 🙂
- Paleo, Gluten Free, and Vegetarian options
- Packaged fresh to last up to 8hrs after delivery – so no need to be home when it arrives.
One of my favorite things about Sunbasket compared to other food delivery services is that they send each recipe individually packaged, that way you don’t have to search for the ingredients for each meal. They also send you a return label so that all the packaging can be recycled.
So, what were the three meals, Topher and I chose to try?
Banana-leaf wrapped salmon with cabbage slaw
570 calories per serving. Perfect light meal for an athlete and healthy, too! This one was gluten-free and paleo. (I don’t have an dietary preferences, just healthy, but fun fact for you all)
Portuguese bread and garlic soup with shrimp
We were kind of super hungry after our workouts, so we added in a side salad, not included in the meal that was sent to us.
The Sunbasket meal was 540 calories and super delicious.
Rigatoni with parsley pesto and white beans
This meal was absolutely delicious and filling and perfect for a night before big workouts. It was 720 calories and vegetarian. Holy moly, goodness! We did add Tempeh for a little extra protein since we were prepping for a big workout day the next day. 🙂
What do I love about Sunbasket?
- healthy meals delivered (convenience)
- athlete food
- each meal is packaged individually
Each meal per person on average is about $10-12. It also makes cooking in the kitchen fun, as Topher and I team up to make dinner together. <3
