Personal Chef To Go Review
Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
One of my daily chores that I hate is planning dinners, especially if we’ve been out all day running errands, at work, or at school. It always seems like I fall back on the same-old-same-old easy dinners most nights and I hate that feeling of being stuck in a rut. I’ve never tried a dinner delivery service before, but now that I have, I can understand why they’re so popular! I’ve been spoiled this past week by some fantastic meals from Personal Chef To Go.
I received four complete dinners from Personal Chef To Go for review. With a husband and two growing boys in the house, their Family Favorites menu was the perfect fit for my crew. The menu included:
* Southwest Shrimp with Roasted Corn and Black Beans, with a side of sweet potato mash (this one was my personal favorite from this menu!)
* Cilantro Lime Roasted Chicken with a side of organic brown rice and chef veggies
* Lean Beef with Mushroom Gravy with a side of fresh seasonal vegetables
* Grilled Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole
* 2 additional sides of whole wheat dinner roles and salad with dressing
The meals arrived fresh (not frozen) in temperature controlled packaging. All the meals and sides were packed separately with detailed cooking instructions on each. The great thing about all the meals were that they were each, on average, ready in 3-5 minutes in the microwave – making these meals ideal for those nights when you’re running behind schedule but want to get your family to sit down to a nice nutritious meal. Since the meals and sides were separate from each other it’s easy to mix and match from the set menu, and you can add more to one night, less to another if you like. That’s what I did and it turned out great. The packages are prepared to stay fresh for a week in the refrigerator, and can be frozen if you don’t get to them all in time. My family and I loved absolutely everything we received – my two boys devoured their meals and always asked for second helpings. I loved how simple everything was to prepare and how fresh everything tasted.
You can feel good feeding your family these meals because all of the Personal Chef To Go menus are low on the Glycemic index, heart healthy, and naturally low to no gluten. They are made from fresh ingredients and shipped within hours of being prepared. They offer three distinct menus based on your needs: Busy Singles, Couples On The Go, and Family Favorites. You can choose to order when you want/need to, or you can choose the auto-ship option which comes with exclusive access to what they call The Chef’s Table, which includes personalized menu planning, cookware and knife recommendations, and even the opportunity to chat with personal chefs on the phone.
