An overview of Terra’s Kitchen
This meal kit delivery service lets you customize your orders, where you can pick from their recipe selection. Or you can allow the team to mix and match recipes for you based on your choice of either vegetarian or combination meals. What’s great is it is not a one-size-fits-all delivery service where you get a surprise set of meals every week. While it works for some, most people would instead select the recipes that they want since meal preference is personal anyway.
The idea for Terra’s Kitchen is it does all the preparation for you, and all you have to do is to cook. As we all know, prepping is the most time-consuming in the cooking process. Depending on the recipe, you should allow at least 30 minutes to prepare the ingredients. If you get to stave off at least 30 minutes of the cooking process, cooking becomes more doable, and you get less of an excuse to say, “I don’t have time to cook.”
Meals range from $74.99 for two people for three dinners, $99.99 for two people for four dinners, and $99.99 for four people for two dinners.
What’s included in the price?
Apart from the meal kits, the price includes free delivery. All prepped ingredients are placed in separate containers and delivered in a small portable fridge. It is a good idea to have the ingredients in a refrigerator upon delivery. Because it allows you to enjoy your food fresh. You need to send back the portable fridge every time you order a meal kit. Which is an eco-friendly way to do deliveries.
What are recipe samples?
Some dinner recipe samples include baked cheesy chicken with kale and corn. Also vegetarian meatballs and tomato soup, quinoa bowl, and spinach salad with baked salmon. Most meals are vegetable-heavy. Even if you choose combination meals, you will still get lots of vegetables with your meals.
You also have the option to order dessert. And it includes yogurt topped with strawberries, mango and strawberry bowl, and peach jelly.
Who should try Terra’s Kitchen?
Terra’s Kitchen can be on the pricey side when you compare it with doing your grocery shopping. But the convenience of having prepped ingredients makes it worth the price. It is perfect for busy individuals who often don’t have time to cook because of their hectic schedule, those with small families, and working couples.
It is a good subscription for those who like to cook but can’t find the time to do all the prep. Likewise, it is excellent for those who would like to get started with cooking but don’t know where to start. Many buyers also purchase these meal kits because they want to eat less outside because of health and economic reasons.
