If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I have taken to trying to look after myself more and food and drink have been having a massive overhaul.
As part of this overhaul I have cut back from fizzy pop and I have tried to limit convenience foods as they tend to involve a lot of preservatives and processing.
Recently I was asked if I would like to try out Everdine, Which is a meal provider with a difference. Everdine is committed to providing foods based on the clean eating concept of not over processing and ensuring that meals are cooked from scratch with the freshest ingredients possible, all the while maintaining super tasty meals.
Everdine offers 8 or 12 wholesome and clean meals subscription plans which are delivered on weekly basis or on a basis of your choosing and are cooked by chefs trained at Michelin-starred restaurants. As soon as the meals are cooked they are then frozen straight after cooking, locking in all the goodness and freshness.
So wanting to give it a go I opted for the 8 meal plan online and picked 8 meals that I thought I would like and then picked a delivery date to suit me. However being in is not an issue either as they delivery can be popped in a location of your choice should you not be in, which I thought was genius (no more sitting by the door and waiting in)
When our delivery arrived it contained all my meals plus an insulated liner with several freezer blocks in there to and all my meals were still perfectly frozen, which is always a worry with fresh or frozen foods as in the past some have arrived half thawed, however this delivery was all rock solid frozen.
First thing I noticed about the food packages was the size, most frozen convenience foods come in smaller packaging and often result in a super small meal. However after cooking my first meal (10 mins in the microwave) I was happily thrilled that tea was going to one I was going to enjoy, it smelled amazing, was a fantastic portion size and it tasted delicious …. Oh and no nightmares getting into the boxes as they have proper tabs to open the containers!
I am not going to lie initially I was maybe a little resistant to the price of the subscription. However the fact you don’t need to add anything to it at all, and the fact that the meals I had were even better than some restaurant meals I have eaten recently I am totally thrilled with them. I wish Everdine had been around when I was living on my own, I would never have to cook!
However all that being said the fact you can amend what is sent each time and move the dates around for delivery means you can fit the subscription service into you life far easier.
By far some of the best meals I have eaten, all while sitting in my PJ’s!
If you fancy trying the new subscription service yourself well nows your chance! If you head over to Everdine website and enter IN1OLIVERS you will receive £30 off your first order!
