Recipe Delivery Services: The New Trend in Cooking at Home
Does cooking seem like a daunting task, and you have no idea where to start? A recipe delivery service may be what you’re looking for!
Eating out can really add up. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2015, the average American household spent $3,008 at restaurants. While cooking at home can be time-consuming, it is the better option for your wallet. There is a new solution to cooking at home: recipe delivery services. Companies like Blue Apron and Hello Fresh have emerged offering an easy and convenient way to cook at home without the hassle of grocery shopping, measuring ingredients, and finding a recipe.
Services like these mail you everything you need right to your door. You can go online to the service’s website and select what you want to be shipped to you. For about $190 a month, you receive perfectly proportioned meals and instructions sent to you. The options are healthy, and an innovative alternative.
You will save time. Because you are not spending time shopping and prepping, you can cut right to the cooking. These services mail vegetables, meat, and more. Since you are also getting appropriate proportions, you won’t waste money by throwing out extra food either. The company Blue Apron runs about $60 per week, with three different meals for two people. At about $10-$12 a plate, that’s not bad for a restaurant quality meal.
While you’re following the service’s instructions, you will pick up new cooking tips. Learn how to do things you never even knew were a thing, like how to blanch green beans or the best way to mince garlic. Some services even have tutorial videos online that you can follow as you prepare your meals.
Whether you’re in a bit of a cooking slump, or you’re just trying to save a few dollars, check out a cooking service! It could be the answer you’re looking for.
