My Week With Blue Apron

One of the things I’ve always wanted to try but never did are those weekly food deliver meal kit things (idk what the real term is). I almost did last year and then they wouldn’t send it to me because my roomie had already done it and they were like girl you been caught. So I never went through with it. One of my resolutions was to stop spending money on clothes and junk food, which sounds so easy but I love clothes and candy is life so its NOT. This was my way of “treating myself” to some healthy means for a decent price! A win-win!

So I received my lil box on Sunday and I was pummpppeeddd to try this stuff cause it looked damn good. I decided to start on Monday to do my week right, ya know.

Maybe it was just me dilly-dally-ing but this shit took me an hour to cook, so I didn’t eat until after 8 and guess who woke up twice during the night with what can only be described as pizza sweats. If you don’t know what pizza sweats are then I’m sorry you’ve never drunkenly eaten pizza and then gone right to sleep and you don’t know what living really is. Let’s be real they call it “flatbread” but its just a fancy word for “thinnish pizza.” The salad was the grossest thing ever, no idea what an endive is but its is horrible. Just leave it in the ground where it belongs if you ask me cause it is not for humans.

The next meal I made on Wednesday and lemme tell you by then I was very discouraged, didn’t even document it and made pasta just in case it was gross and/or took too long. I finished it in a decent amount of time and this one was DAMN GOOD. So good that I really would even make it again cause it had so many veggies and kale with so much flavor I would never even think to put together! It really restored my faith and was even really good the next day I was so impressed.

By my last meal on Friday I was feelin’ like this:

But it was my last one and it was tacos and potatoes so it had to be good right?

The meat part really sketched me out because it was pork, the sketchiest of the meats. Also the directions called for a lot of water while I was cooking the meat?? I’ve never made ground meat so this was all weird for me. The tacos included radishes which lemme tell you are the grossest things ever. They had this weird bitter after taste and I am not about it. After eating I felt kinda gross and the only upside was that the potatoes were amazing, but like obviously.

Overall, I wasn’t impressed. This could be better maybe if I ate meat, but since I try to cut it out wherever I can’t, this really wasn’t for me. If I had gotten more meals like the Cauliflower Kale one, it would’ve been great. Next up I’m trying Hello Fresh!!!! Lets compare and see which one is better shall we?
