I was really excited about the entire Chefs Plate experience for a number of reasons. First and foremost, delivery was so easy. On my delivery day, it was dropped on my doorstep in an insulated box with ice packs – so I didn’t have to worry that it was left on my porch before I got home!
The biggest appeal of Chefs Plate is that it takes out the headache of meal planning. Seriously, that’s already half the battle. Having a week’s worth of meals delivered to my house saved time in planning and simplified my weekly grocery trip.
With three kids under the age of five, planning time to prep a meal is a challenge… so Chefs Plate to the rescue! Meals took no more than 30 minutes to prepare, so I could fit the meal prep in at a time that worked perfectly for my schedule. Of course – as any mom knows – my meal prep happened when the kids were asleep, and we ate the meals the next day!
There’s also the added benefit of no waste. Typically the extra ingredients left over are put away in the fridge with the hope that we’ll get to it next time (and inevitably never do).With Chefs Plate you get perfectly portioned ingredient for each recipe – no more, no less.
I enjoyed the unique twists on foods that I love, like fish tacos or Greek turkey burgers. As most moms can attest to, navigating with a newborn and taking care of two toddlers makes having a complete sit down dinner difficult. So, a lot of my gourmet and delicious meals were done ‘on the run’ style.
Now let’s talk produce. Chefs Plate has high quality, fresh produce and restaurant quality meats. I was seriously impressed with the quality of the meats. Like Well.ca, when you exist online, the standard is set even higher. You need to deliver on the customer expectations, and we are no stranger to meeting and exceeding those expectations for customers. Chefs Plate did the same. Over-delivered on the food and the experience.
I’m happy to say I was incredibly satisfied with the Chefs Plate experience, and can certainly see it becoming part of my weekly planning cycle for family dinner. Chefs Plate offers the perks of making my life easier when it comes to dinner planning for the family, and ensuring we have healthy food options. Hmmm… convenience AND healthy food options? Sounds like another company I know, right here at Well.ca!
