We’ve been admiring the lovely boxes from the guys at Mindful Chef for a while, so we jumped at the chance to try them and they did not disappoint!
Mindful Chef is a small business set up by 3 friends in 2015 on a mission to make healthy eating easy. They are the UK’s favourite recipe box company, as voted by customers on Trustpilot. All their recipes are gluten-free and contain no refined carbs or sugars.
How It Works:
- Their professional chefs create nutritious recipes using seasonal ingredients. No pasta, no white rice, no bread.
- They source the finest organic ingredients from their farms in Devon, pre-measure them into the exact quantities and deliver to you for free at home or work. No more traipsing around the supermarket.
- The ingredients get delivered to your door along with a recipe cards with instructions of how to cook them. Healthy, delicious, hassle free meals ready in just 25 minutes that keep you and your body on track.
Firstly, I love the quality of the ingredients- the meat is sourced from Eversfield Organic, veg from Langridge Organic. This is really important for me as I love to know exactly where my meat is from. Plus, everything is portioned up and ready to go.
I made the Thai pork meatballs in a coconut courgetti noodle soup first. This is my kind of dish- fresh and healthy, simple to prepare and packed full of flavour. It still feels like you’re doing proper cooking, but without the hassle of buying all the ingredients and worrying about wasting what you don’t use. The portion size was bigger than I thought as well, which my greedy side was very happy about! And as all the meals are gluten free and don’t contain any refined carbs/sugars I was more than happy to devour all of it without an ounce of guilt.
The next meal- beef koftas with cauliflower tabbouleh and harissa was just as good. I even took the leftover cauliflower tabbouleh for lunch the next day, I couldn’t get enough of it! I have cauliflower rice quite often, but I always find it annoying to prepare this was perfect for me.
I would definitely recommend the Mindful chef boxes for anyone who loves delicious healthy food, without the hassle. Great quality ingredients, tasty meals and all delivered to your door. What’s not to love!
