When SodaStream Canada asked if I would like to try a convenient healthy food delivery service to help simplify my life – of course I said yes. For the past month, I received fresh ingredients and easy-to-prepare recipes for 3 meals a week. I had just moved into my new home so the MissFresh meals couldn’t have come at a better time. I had the stress of unpacking and settling in, but zero stress about getting groceries or worrying about what I was going to make for lunch or dinner. Saving time and money after buying a home was a welcome plus. It was also nice to eat out less and re-discover my love for cooking. Below are some of my favourite meals from MissFresh, prepared by yours truly!The ingredients for the Strawberry Balsamic Glazed Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts.
The ingredients are REALLY fresh! I would receive a recyclable box every Tuesday with three meals for the week. The recipes were always simple to follow (there are step-by-step photos) and take no more than 30 minutes to prepare. I loved trying all the different recipes and of course, I liked some more than others, but at least now I know which recipes I would order again.
All the meals were really healthy and filling. My guy was impressed that I was enjoying cooking so much. He knows how much I hate grocery shopping and meal-planning. Give me ingredients and a recipe and suddenly I love cooking! We decided to take healthy to the next level by sometimes only drinking water with our meals (in champagne glasses just to be fancy). Already a huge fan of my SodaStream Power machine, I would add a splash of one of the SodaStream drink mixes. My favourite is lime-basil because it goes perfectly with a fresh and healthy meal.Pork Chops Sauté with peaches and couscous. I loooooove peaches! Cooking for myself and my partner in our new home made me really happy. I enjoyed taking my time and plating the dishes with love. The only extra work we had to do was add a bottle of wine once-in-awhile or maybe a salad.On a hot Summer day, a nice glass of sparkling water made with my SodaStream, served on ice with just a squeeze of fresh lime always did the trick! No hauling of water bottles from the grocery store either – score!Another MissFresh hit – Kale and White Fish Salad FTW. This kale and portobello pizza was so good. I actually brought the ingredients to my girlfriend’s house last Friday night. What better way to bond than over pizza and girl talk?
Our favourite dish of all was this Pomegranate Glazed Chicken. Since we happened to invite friends over for dinner that day – I just picked up more of the same ingredients that were sent to me to double the recipe. It was so good – we loved the spices in this recipe – our house smelled amazing after.
Have you tried MissFresh or a similar service? Let me know how you liked it and if there’s another one you’d suggest. I have to admit, I’m sad that my month of MissFresh deliveries has come to an end, I think I’d better place another order soon!
