Meal Kits are Beneficial to Everyday Life
Griffin Lawlor ‘21
Cooking has been the same for years. You go to the store, purchase your ingredients and go home. Now, in this new age of technology, you can have your food delivered right to your home. There are many services out there: Everyplate, Blue Apron, Hello Fresh and more. Most of these, including Everyplate, offer deals and plans. These meal kits make a busy night much easier, which is why I believe that people should subscribe to Everyplate.
The meal kit will improve your life in a myriad of ways. First, it allows people to find new recipes and to try new things you thought you might not have liked. Even if you only order for one or two weeks, you can find new recipes to add to your kitchen. This adds more variety to your dinner menu instead of cooking and eating the same thing every week.
In addition, a meal kit saves time because it eliminates the need to shop for ingredients or cook food. With a meal kit, ready-to-eat food is delivered right to your door, which makes it an ideal program for busy families.
The meal kit will also send pre-portioned amounts of food to your door, so you can avoid having leftover amounts of something that you may or may not end up throwing out. Also, if you end up not liking the recipe, then you won’t have leftover ingredients lying around.
Continuing, there is nutritional value to the meal kits. The nutrition facts are listed online when you pick your meals for the week. The meals also have options for dietary restrictions. Finally, these meal kits cost less money than buying all the ingredients separately.
It’s as the saying goes: give a man a meal, and he eats for a day. Give a man a meal kit subscription and the whole family saves time and money, enjoys a wider range of experiences and receives more complete nutrition.
