Change up the Dinner Routine with Quick and Easy Meals from Home Chef

Part of living a healthy lifestyle includes making healthy meals on a daily basis for my family.  I have a repertoire of recipes that we love and enjoy, but it can be boring to eat the same dinner on a repeat basis, so I am always looking for new ideas that are quick and easy to prepare, are healthy and that my family will enjoy.

I recently had the opportunity to try out a meal kit delivery company called Home Chef, which helped us sample some new meals and break out of our dinner rut!

Home Chef offers busy families a convenient way to try out new meals that are quick and easy to make.  It takes the stress out of meal planning and preparation. 

It has 15 weekly menu options, which provides a lot of variety and choice.  The meals cost $9.95 per serving and arrive with the pre-portioned ingredients that are needed to cook each meal.  That means no measuring and no waste when trying out new meals!

There were so many meal choices on the Home Chef website, it was hard to narrow it down.  My kids and I do not eat red meat or pork regularly, so that narrowed down some choices, but there were still many to choose from.  Most of the meal choices were family-friendly and all were familiar, but with a twist.  There were low-calorie, heart-healthy and vegetarian options to choose from as well, so eating healthy is also easy with Home Chef.

I chose two meals from the Home Chef website to try out that I felt my family would enjoy: French Onion Shrimp and Grits and Mexican Street Corn Salad.  Both meals were quick and easy to prepare.  Because the ingredients came pre-portioned, all I had to do was chop, saute/bake and assemble.  Each meal took less than 30 minutes to make, and the clean up was minimal since the recipes encourage using the same pans for multiple steps.  I hate doing dishes, so win-win for me!

The meals were a hit with my family.  My children enjoy shrimp but I've never made Shrimp and Grits, so I wanted to try something new.  By preparing it with the French onion cream sauce, this classic dish was elevated to a new level.  My husband, especially, gobbled down his meal.  He loved the flavors of the French onion cream sauce.

The Mexican Street corn salad was equally tasty.  My kids were enthralled by the tortilla bowls that I made by following the Home Chef instructions.  I was excited to learn a new cooking technique.  Another win-win!

All in all, Home Chef provided an easy way to try some new meals, break up the boring dinner routine, and make it simple and quick for me to prepare healthy and fresh meals for my family on busy weeknights.  The beauty of the service is that you can pause or skip a week.  There are no binding contracts, which makes it easy to try it out.
