Green Chef Recipe Kit at Your Service

Green Chef

I have to admit, I turned my nose up at the idea of Green Chef, and all of the similar services.  I really enjoy every part of cooking, well except cleaning.  But the point is, the fact that everything is portioned for you, I thought I would just be adding things to a pot or a skillet and and heating it up.  I was pleasantly suprised that the portioned out ingredients means that if the recipe calls for half an onion, the box includes just that, and you then have to prepare it, dice chop, or whatever.

Green Chef Pros

Each box from Green Chef comes with 3 very different recipes, to eat through the week.  I ordered the box for 2 people, therefore each meal serves 2, however, the portions are quite big, so I am able to stretch the entire box for most of the week. The ingredients are fresh and organic.  There is no waste as far as food spoiling because there are excess ingredients.  You have several choices regarding types of meals including, Omnivore, Carnivore, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Paleo, Vegetarian, and even the new popular Keto.

Green Chef Cons

The only draw back with Green Chef is that their is no recipe for the sauces that come in the box, because typically they are just sent already prepared.  For someone that enjoys the process, I really would like to be able to duplicate the recipe.  Also, since I would definitely suggest this service to someone that is not very comfortable in the kitchen, providing the recipe for the items that are already prepared, like sauces, would be awesome to allow someone to repeat a recipe and duplicate it themselves.

  • Like you, I’m skeptical of trying out the boxes because I enjoy cooking. I like that everything in this one is organic. I’ll keep this one in mind for when I know I’ll have busy weeks.

    • I highly recommend it for the busy person that wants a healthy meal, but doesn’t have the time to shop or prep, each recipe is 30-40 minutes from start to finish
