Last week I was offered the chance to try a Gousto box for free, which I obviously couldn’t refuse. I love food and me and my husband both enjoy cooking, I’m more of a freestyle chef who likes to make it up as I go along ,whilst my husband likes to stick to a recipe. I found the website easy enough to use, a good selection of recipes and we waited just a couple of days for delivery.
The box came on Monday and was dropped off in our porch, ready for when I got back home. The boxes stay cool for up to 24 hours so if you’re not in, it’s not a problem. I decided to hang fire cooking the meals until my husband had a couple of days off work so I wasn’t cooking the meal for just one person.
Everything was packed nicely, labelled, measured out and made easy for preparation. We got a free wooden spoon and recipes came on a card so we could keep it if we decided we wanted to make it again.
I happily went off to work that day knowing that I would have dinner cooked for me when I got home. My husband cooked the Hoisin Meatballs and Chinese Sesame Rice on the first night and I can honestly say it was so tasty and surprisingly filling. The recipe took around 30 minuets to prepare and cook and the meal came in at under 700 calories.
The next day I happily trotted off to work and kept myself motivated at the thought of the tasty dinner that would await. The second meal my husband cooked was the Indonesian Chicken Rendang. I wasn’t sure it could out do the meal from the previous evening, but it did. Again we had another tasty meal prepared and cooked in less than half hour and 600 calories.
I think I will order again from Gousto, not every week, but I like the idea of trying out meals I wouldn’t usually want to commit buying all the ingredients for. These recipes are tried and tested and are restaurant quality meals that are fairly low in calories.
