Home Chef gourmet meal delivery service

I recently tried Home Chef gourmet meal delivery service and I really enjoyed it.  This service allows you to choose how many people you are feeding and what type of meals you would like to receive (there is a vegetarian option).  There is a variety of meals to choose from each week so making your selection is easy since you can be flexible.  There is something for everyone!  The meals come with ingredients pre-measured, which makes it very easy to cook a gourmet meal in your own home.

For my first delivery, I received rosemary cider chicken, BBQ chicken panini with cheddar cheese and steak marsala with parmesan mash.  I didn’t get to snap a photo of the rosemary cider chicken because it was so delicious that my husband and I ate it quickly, but here are the other two meals:

HelloFresh gourmet home delivery meals

HelloFresh is a home delivery service that provides meals for 2-4 people with all of the necessary gourmet ingredients included, as well as thorough directions to help you prepare a beautiful, flavorful meal.  I am terrible at cooking, so it is amazing how easy HelloFresh makes it for me to create delicious meals for my husband and I.

helloYou can choose between three different plans- classic, veggie and family plan.  The classic box includes a variety of meat and fish dishes with seasonal produce.  The veggie plan is a meat-free selection for vegetarians.  The family plan includes meals that are appropriate for the entire family, including small children that may not be able to eat as much.  After you choose a box, you can select the number of people you are feeding and how many meals per person you would like.  The meals range in price from $8.75-9.90 each, which is quite reasonable considering that they are gourmet dishes and you are paying far less than you would for a dinner portion at a nice restaurant.  You can choose to have a box delivered weekly, or skip however many weeks you would like.  If you want to try this box at a steep discount before paying full price, use the code 2225252BJUN5 for $40 off.

Wisma Gourmet Fresh Tomato Sauce – Rustic Tomato – Vegan Marinara Sauce Sold by: Wisma Gourmet

Wisma Gourmet Fresh Tomato Sauce – Rustic Tomato – Vegan Marinara Sauce

Sold by: Wisma Gourmet

sauceI am a huge fan of pasta dishes so I was very excited to try this sauce. This sauce is vegan and is made with natural ingredients so I feel good about eating it. I purchased rustic tomato sauce flavor and it went really well with my spaghetti and meatballs. It is very easy to prepare- just heat the sauce in a pot or microwave it and add it to the other components of your dish. That is it!

The flavor of this sauce is pretty good but it is somewhat blander than others that I have tried. This could be due to the fact that it contains less sugar than many store bought brands. I added a bit of garlic powder to the sauce to give it more flavor and it was delicious. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a healthier, more natural alternative for their pasta sauce. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Disposable Clear Plastic Cups Offered by eLuxury Supply

Disposable Clear Plastic Cups for Iced Coffee Bubble Boba Tea Smoothie, 12 oz – 100 Sets with Flat Lids
Offered by eLuxury Supply

cupppI love these awesome cups. I use them every morning for my smoothies and iced coffee. The domed lid is the best part because it allows me to add more than I would be able to with a regular cup AND has a hole for my straw. That makes it especially convenient to drink while I’m on the go. The cups are sturdy and well made.

I see that the listing now says that they come with flat lids, but mine were definitely domed as you can see in the photos. There are 100 12oz cups so they will last me for a very long time. I would recommend this to anyone who makes smoothies or coffee drinks and consumes them on the go and to people who are planning parties and events because these would also be useful for feeding large groups. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Reusable and Portable Neoprene Lunch Tote with Heavy Duty Offered by NOBOUND

Reusable and Portable Neoprene Lunch Tote with Heavy Duty Zipper for Both Men and Women – Bag Designed to Stretch for Big Healthy Meals on the Go (Floral)
Offered by NOBOUND

I carry food with me wherever I go because I like to at least attempt to be healthy, so I need a lunch bag that I can rely on. I also want a bag that is cute so I feel proud to carry it. This is the perfect bag for me because it is both good looking and well made. As you can see in the photos, it is roomy enough to fit an entire meal or just snacks and drinks. The zipper makes it even more convenient to carry because if the bag accidentally tips over, the contents won’t just fly out.

The material is soft and flexible which is nice because a lot of bags are bulky and take up too much space. This bag will extend a bit or can be made to be more compact, depending on my specific needs for that day. I like that the material is easily washable so I can keep the bag looking nice and new. The description says that it is insulated which I was unsure about since the material didn’t feel like it had an extra layer in it. However, it kept my food cool for hours so I’m guessing that it is insulated well enough!

I highly recommend this to people with special dietary needs, especially those like me who don’t want to sacrifice aesthetic appeal for convenience. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Mr Beer North American Collection Beer Home Brewing Kit Offered by Better-Deals

Mr Beer North American Collection Beer Home Brewing Kit
Offered by Better-Deals

If you are interested in brewing your own beer, this is a great place to start. I got the gold edition Mr. Beer kit for my fiance and he loved it so much that I got him a second kit so he can make more than one batch. This kit is the standard kit so it’s not quite as fancy but it has everything you need to get started. I considered buying ingredients for my fiance separately but this kit was much cheaper plus it is easy to follow the step-by-step process when everything is already laid out for you. This kit was worth every penny and he will be using it for a long time.

Coopers DIY Home Brewing Carbonation Drops

Coopers DIY Home Brewing Carbonation Drops

My husband brews his own beer and the refill kits do not come with carbonation drops. This bag of 60 drops is a great addition to his supplies because it is enough to create 6 gallons of beer. If you have the 2 gallon system like my fiance does, that means that it can be stretched over several batches. Directions state that you add two to each beer (place in the bottom of the bottle before adding your fermented beer on top.
Carbonation drops are really an essential part of brewing your own beer. I would recommend this to anyone who creates their own, especially if you are just starting out and getting a lot of refills.

One Step No – Rinse Cleanser 16 OZ Offered by HomeBrew4Less

One Step No – Rinse Cleanser 16 OZ
Offered by HomeBrew4Less

My husband brews his own beer and this no rinse cleanser has been a great addition to his supply. As you “brew masters” know, sanitizing your equipment is a necessary part of the process. If for some reason you lose the no rinse cleanser that comes with your kit, you cannot really make beer without it. That is why I got this 16oz package of it for my fiance- just in case!

This is a large package that comes with enough no rinse cleanser to make 32 gallons of beer! If you have the standard 2 gallon Mr. Beer system like my fiance does, that is 16 batches! I would highly recommend this to anyone who brews their own beer as a backup for the no rinse cleanser that comes with many refills because unexpected problems could arise with your cleanser and you cannot brew your beer without properly sanitizing everything.

Inspire Protein Powder- Banana Smoothie

Inspire protein powder if a line of whey protein isolate powders that claim to be specially formulated products that are easier to absorb for individuals who have had bariatric weight loss surgery, that are both lactose and gluten free.  Unlike many whey protein powders on the market today, they are not made from a concentrate or blend.

The banana smoothie flavor of Inspire protein powder is awesome.  I love banana smoothies but sometimes I don’t have time to blend multiple ingredients into a smoothie so it’s nice to be able to just add a scoop of banana smoothie flavored Inspire to my shaker bottle with either almond milk or Fairlife milk and shake.  That’s all it takes for a flavorful smoothie.  The banana smoothie flavor of Inspire blends well, with very few lumps.  Sometimes I like to blend half of a scoop of this flavor with half of a scoop of peanut butter cookie Inspire for a great banana/peanut butter protein drink.  I have also used this flavor of inspire to make flourless banana pancakes.  This is one of my favorite flavors from the impressive line of Inspire protein powders.

Each bag has 20 servings of protein powder (1 scoop, which is included) and each serving includes 103 calories, .5 gram of fat, 5 grams of carbs and 20 grams of protein.  I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great protein powder, regardless of whether or not you have had weight loss surgery.

Inspire Protein Powder- Blueberry Cheesecake Flavor

Inspire protein powder if a line of whey protein isolate powders that claim to be specially formulated products that are easier to absorb for individuals who have had bariatric weight loss surgery, that are both lactose and gluten free.  Unlike many whey protein powders on the market today, they are not made from a concentrate or blend.

Blueberry cheesecake Inpsire protein powder is an incredible flavor of protein powder.  I mix it with almond milk or Fairlife milk, and sometimes just water or a blend of half water/half milk.  I have also used this flavor of protein powder in a recipe for flourless protein pancakes and they turned out quite well and super fruity, even without adding any extra fruit pieces.  I will say that this flavor seems to clump slightly more than others, but I do not mind one bit because the clumps are delicious!  This is the flavor that I find myself drinking most often because I cannot get enough of it.  Even my husband who is generally not a big fan of protein powders loves the blueberry cheesecake flavor.

Each bag has 20 servings of protein powder (1 scoop, which is included) and each serving includes 104 calories, 0 gram of fat, 5 grams of carbs and 20 grams of protein.  I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great protein powder, regardless of whether or not you have had weight loss surgery.
