Love to eat, hate to cook, and looking for a satisfying but good-for-you meal without turning to Blue Apron? Me too.
I love to eat and don’t HATE to cook, but I’m not great at it (nor very creative in the kitchen.)
And between all the dining out I do, I’m always grateful for a clean, healthy meal that actually tastes great.
That’s where The Blossoming Kitchen comes in.
This meal-prep business is owned and operated by three women: executive chef Katrina Bearer (previously with Nolen Kitchen), nutritionist Adrienne Wei and marketing guru Kara Markley.
“We started it to try to take the stress out of meal prepping and trying to plan for your family,” said Markley.
The Blossoming Kitchen does anywhere between 300 – 500 meals each week depending on demand.
How it works
Each Tuesday, a new menu is launched on their website, and it’s live until Friday at 10 a.m.
Your meals (whether you ordered one or twenty) will be delivered Sunday or Monday ($5 fee, unless your order is over $60) or you can choose to pick them up at the designated locations.
Meals run $12 each, sides are $4 and desserts are $8.
If you think that’s a lot, wait until you see the portions. I was impressed by the amount of food Chef Bearer fits into the microwave-safe containers.
Each item is crafted with fresh, local, organic ingredients without sacrificing a bit of flavor.
So basically, dishes like chicken picatta, tikki masala meatballs and pork carnita bowls taste amazing and are actually good for you. Win.
Each dish is also labeled with calories, carbs, fat and protein for those who are keeping track.
Just so you get an idea, here’s a sample of last week’s Blossoming Kitchen menu items: Greek Burger, Carnitas Stuffed Sweet Tater, Italian Mushroom Bake, Chicken Marsala, Orange Sriacha Drumsticks and Spicy Shrimp Pasta
