Why I Love Sun Basket

Sun Basket is a meal delivery subscription that offers all organic, non GMO produce and responsibly sourced meats and seafood. Users have the option to select Paleo, Gluten-free or Vegetarian meal plans with 3 meals per week, 2 or 4 servings each.

I started SunBasket because I desired some variety to my home cooked meals. On average, I cook 5 nights a week, and I wanted some inspiration to mix up my dishes.I chose to try Sun Basket because I get to choose the meals, the total cooking time is always less than 45 minutes, and everything is fresh and delicious. Plus, I can pause the service at any time. Lately, I’ve ordered SunBasket for about 2 weeks out of the month.

When sharing the concept with friends, they ask “Is it enough food?” The meals are usually between 450 and 750 calories per person, so I almost always add to them, especially for my husband. (It’s different for everyone, but as a super active person, I know I need my calories). Easy ways to make the meals more filling including adding runny eggs, grains, spinach, beans or meat. I usually have these staples in my kitchen, which makes it simple to do.

Last night I made an amazing vegetarian soup dish that was super filling and so delicious!

I’ve seen some other bloggers utilize the service and love it as well!

Note that I typically add my own twist to the recipes, so they don’t look exactly as Sun Basket presents them.
