As an dietitian and business owner, I am a lover of healthy meal delivery services for convenience. 

However, they have to be good quality! Eating healthy meals is a priority to me no matter how busy things get although it can be a challenge on particularly busy days and weeks. I have had the opportunity to try many services, each unique in their own way including ethnic cuisine and pre-made, plant-based meals. I was thrilled to be able to partner with Sun Basket and try their service.

Sun Basket is a new healthy, organic meal kit delivery service that incorporates only sustainably-sourced ingredients.

What makes them unique is that they use all organic ingredients and their meats and seafood are responsibly sourced, grass-fed and antibiotic-free. How it works is each week you choose three recipes for 2 or 4 people at $11.49 per meal. Their ingredients are pre-measured so it eliminates prep-time and waste. They are delivered right to your door every week – taking the guess work out of weeknight dinners.

Their recipes are easy to follow at home and include paleo, gluten-free and vegetarian options. I am already recommending it to my clients with dietary restrictions. Definitely RD-approved! You can visit their website and get $30 off your first order here.

I chose the following three meals last week:

  • Salmon with roasted new potatoes and green beans
  • Roast chicken with spiced cauliflower and green romesco
  • Butternut squash risotto with Meyer lemon
Talk about yum! I truly loved all three meals but my boyfriend and I decided that the roast chicken was our favorite. He was apprehensive about the butternut squash risotto since he isn’t keen on vegetarian dishes but I thought the flavors were the embodiment of fall! Each dish not only tasted great but presented well. I loved the sauces for each dish which elevated them visually. The components were balanced and I felt satisfied after each meal. 
 
As a dietitian, I feel comfortable recommending this service to my clients who find it mostly difficult to prepare healthy meals at the end of the work day – we’ve all been there. Let me now if you have a chance to try their service! Feel free to share with me on Instagram!
