Review: Easy and Healthy Blue Apron Makes Cooking Fun

I absolutely love the fact that we are constantly trying great places to eat, but sometimes it can get tedious and also boring. I also realize that sometimes people don’t get the nourishment they need from eating out all the time. Plus face it, eating out can also be expensive. Busy families don’t always have the time to plan healthy meals or shopping for them.  That is why someone came up with the idea for Blue Apron, healthy meals that are delicious and also all the ingredients are delivered right to your door. You don’t even have to set foot in a grocery store.

Our adventure started with the delivery. Upon arrival, we discovered all the goodies in each Blue Apron package. The meats  were all packed for shipment and were fresh, there was plenty of healthy fresh vegetables and fruits for each recipe,  even spices were included . The recipes were easy to read and cook. There was more than enough for each meal.

The ingredients were as fresh as could be. They were delivered so that each ingredient would be able to be put right in the freezer as soon as they arrived. Packages were wrapped and identified clearly. The food was also shipped , ready to be cooked

Blue Apron also has a vegan option for those who favor the vegan lifestyle. We preferred to try the meat/fish option. This actually worked out since we received our shipment during Lent. One of the meals we got contained salmon. We also like the idea that you don’t have to shop for the ingredients for two reasons, First, here in Chicago you never know what the weather will bring. For the past two years, we have had days so bad that no one wants to go out and buy food. It also allows busy people to eat healthier. I have to admit when people are in college or rehearsing a show, they don’t eat healthy. They go through drive throughs or eat out of vending machines. This allows the subscriber to enjoy healthy and delicious meals .


 The verdict? We really liked all the meals. There was definitely enough for two and more. We even have some ingredients left at this point.  I will say that the one salad was a little too try for my taste. a little bland and it was my own fault for not adding my fave low cal dressing to it.

Blue Apron is affordable only 9.99 a meal per person. It averages out considering how much a meal out is. For more info: go to
