Happy Monday! This week I’m trying out a new trend from Plated, which is essentially a meal delivery service. They send a box of ingredients right to your doorstep to make “chef-inspired” recipes that you choose from their menu. The box includes just enough of everything you need and has instructions for how to cook the meal.
I have been so intrigued by this concept (Plated recently struck a deal on Shark Tank) and couldn’t resist when I saw they were running a promo for two free meals this week. So I took the plunge! I only had to pay for shipping which made it very affordable (just $20!). Based on the portions I received, I think I can make three meals out of each recipe – an even better deal. I’ll follow up later this week in a comment to let you know how I like it (follow me on Instagram @cooklikekayla for photos)!
