Sun Basket Unboxing
Here is how our first Sun Basket shipment arrived:
Not only was it obvious that they took extra care with the packaging to ensure all of the food arrived safe and fresh, all of the packaging was recyclable as well.
Right on top we found the welcome booklet and the recipe guide. The recipe guide contained not only instructions for the particular meals we had ordered, but also all of the other meals offered in this week's menu as well, giving us a sneak peek at what other types of meals were available. Everything looked delicious, but we picked the Paleo meal plan options since we are trying to eat healthier these days. Sun Basket also offers Lean & Clean, Mediterranean, Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten Free options.
The ingredients for each of our meals came in a labeled recyclable bag, except for the meats (not pictured) which were packed separately with reusable ice packs. This made it easy for us to just grab a baggie out of the fridge and start cooking. We decided to make the Korean beef skewers with sesame-cabbage slaw first since it sounded delicious.
All of the ingredients arrived fresh and intact – even the peaches weren't bruised, which was pretty impressive. The instructions for cooking the meal were easy to follow, and didn't require anything beyond the usual kitchen tools like a knife & cutting board and a cheese grater. The sesame-cabbage slaw came together quite easily, and the only thing we wished was that there was a little more of the Asian slaw dressing that came with it. It was really tasty but there wasn't really enough of it for our taste. We also happened to have some fresh carrots and cucumbers from our garden, so we added those to our salad as well.
We didn't take any pictures while putting together the beef skewers because our hands were covered in meat, but the end result of the meal was delicious! The skewers had a really authentic flavor that wasn't hard to achieve at all, and the slaw was refreshing.
The meal was very filling, and the portions were perfect for two people. If you like to take leftovers for lunch, though, you may want to order the 4 person kit instead of the 2 person kit so that you have enough left over to bring with you.
Our other two paleo meals were also delicious and satisfying – we ate them too fast for pictures!
The Bottom Line
Overall, Sun Basket is a great way to try new recipes that you might not otherwise be brave enough to try at home, while keeping your health and the planet in mind. For the price, it's a good value especially if you are trying to follow a special diet like Paleo, Keto, Vegan, or Vegetarian. Their produce is fresh and the flavors are complex and fun. It's easy to change your order as well – we contacted Sun Basket customer service and were in touch with a representative who happily changed our order for us within minutes.
The bottom line is, if you like eating healthy food and cooking but don't like shopping, Sun Basket is for you. Why not try it today?
