{Meal Delivery Kit Review} What I Thought of Every Plate. #everyplate #mealdeliverykit #fresh #costfriendly


Hey everyone!

I've used a number of meal delivery kit services and so far there has been only one that has just blown me away. But that wasn't Every Plate and I will talk about that one in another post.


Now, Every Plate isn't horrible by any means. The food delivered was fresh, easy to prepare, and didn't take forever to cook the dishes. But there were some things that I didn't really care for and things that other meal delivery kits spoiled me on. Such as having everything put together in its own bag so that when I am ready to make the dish all I have to do is pull the bag from the fridge, pick my protein and bam I am ready to start prepping and cooking.

With Every Plate, the produce itself is put into a box and all of the other ingredients are put into one big resealable bag so that when you want to cook something you have to go searching through the produce and the bag to get everything. No, this isn't that big of a deal but once you get used to having everything already done for you, it's hard to go to something else.


What bugged me the most though with Every Plate is that the recipe cards were only half-sheet cards and not full cards like every other meal delivery kit service. I guess not doing all the other stuff is what helps keep cost low, but honestly, you can't skimp on the recipe cards. I love keeping them in a binder so that I can go back and cook the best recipes. However, having such a small card, well for lack of a better word, sucks. Also, for someone with crappy eyesight, also doesn't help. The bigger cards allow me to see everything much more clearly and fit nicely in my binder too.

Now, when it comes to the actual meals. Well, you don't get the variety you do with other delivery services. Pretty much you get around 8 different choices with Every Plate where you get around 12 to 16 with other services. That might not seem like that many more choices but it really is when you think about the different kinds of meals such as vegetarian, vegan, keto, seafood, chicken, and so forth. Overall though, the choices you do get are pretty good and I wasn't disappointed in the recipes I did choose.




The first recipe that I ended up trying is the Soy-Glazed Meatloaves. This also turned out to be my favorite recipe of the three that I got from Every Plate. It was easy to make and delish to eat. I will be making this more often, for sure. I didn't follow the recipe completely though, and I love that you can leave out some ingredients, because I hate wasabi, so that did not go into my beautiful garlic mashed potatoes.

The next recipe that I ended up cooking was the Tangy Apricot Pork Chops and I gotta tell you that the apricot sauce was divine and I will totally be using that sauce again. However, I will do what I can to make it sugar-free, as I try to do low carb and sugar-free. The couscous was a perfect side for that beautiful pork chops and sauce. Very happy with this recipe and will be cooking it again.



I'm sad to say that this was the one recipe that I ended up not making like the recipe called for. When it was time to make this, we just didn't want burgers so instead, we ended up making another meatloaf and mashed potato dinner. It still turned out quite good and I have the recipe card so that I can make this another time whenever I want.

Last Thoughts

Overall, Every Plate was a great meal kit service and does have great recipes for on the go people and families. However, with all of the other home delivery services available, there are better ones that give more options for recipes, diets, and other things people look for when planning their meals. Yes, Every Plate is on the cheaper side of the meal delivery kits but it just doesn't offer everything other meal delivery kits offer, that I personally like and enjoy.

Will I be getting Every Plate again?

No, there are other meal delivery kits that I like much better. However, you don't have to take my word for anything. Feel free to try Every Plate for yourself and have fresh, delicious recipes delivered to your house as often as you would like.

My Thoughts


Look this said it was for cats too along with dogs and I am always on the lookout for a good grooming brush. Gave this one a try and I hate it and so do my cats. In all honesty, I didn't know what I was expecting when I got this comb but it's useless on animals with short hair. It just drags through it and that's it. Unless your pet has some thick long hair this comb isn't going to do anything. I ended up passing this brush onto a friend who has a long-haired shaggy dog and it seems to work well but they have said that they have had better combs but they did like the metal comb part and glad that it wasn't made from plastic like some other combs. The prongs are also, on both sides, pretty far apart so brushing through the animal's fur is pretty useless and doesn't do much if they have short hair.

Overall, I don't recommend this comb, brush, rake, or whatever you want to call it unless you have a long thick-haired cat or dog and then it might not work as well as you think it might.

I do want to add that it's a nicely made comb. It sits nicely in the hand, easy to hold and use. It's also lightweight and the comb part is made of metal and not plastic. So, when it comes to the design and actual product it's great. It just doesn't work with short-haired animals.

{Recipe} Creamy Tomato Cucumber Salad #cucumber #tomato #salad

Hey everyone!

I have such an amazing and super simple recipe to share with you guys.

With it being summer time the last thing I want to eat is something hot and heavy. This fresh cool salad is bursting with fresh veggies and the creamy dressing won't weigh you down.

This salad can be paired with any kind of meat or bbq and will be a big hit with the family.

Feel free to tweak the dressing or add in more veggies to make it your own. Instead of using mayo try using greek yogurt with a splash of lemon juice. Maybe throw in some garlic. You can't mess this salad up even if you tried.

Have fun in the kitchen and make the food you will love.


The Recipe

Creamy Tomato Cucumber Salad

1 cucumber
1 bunch sweet tomatoes
1 small red onion
1 pkg small mozzarella balls
1 heaping tablespoon fresh dill
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup sour cream
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
.
Wash all the veggies and set aside. Peel your cucumber or leave the peel on if desired. Cut cumber lengthwise and use a spoon to clean out the seeds. Once cleaned slice cucumbers into bite-sized chunks or slices. I cut the cucumber into fourths and then cut into bite-sized pieces. Put into a large bowl. Slice tomatoes in half and the onion into thin slices. If you want to slice the mozzarella balls in half or even forth go ahead otherwise drain off any liquid and put them with the veggies.

For the dressing mix together the mayo and sour cream along with dill, salt, and pepper. Taste to make sure the seasoning is to your taste, if not, add more dill, salt, or pepper. Once to your taste mix into veggies and be careful not to break up the tomatoes too much.

 Chill and enjoy.

My Thoughts


I love silicone so much. Like seriously, I have so much of it that it's kinda scary. I have it for everything from baking, stirring, and now freezing.

I go through a lot of ice because I have to have it in everything that I drink. Normally I buy at least two bags a week because I can't stand the taste of our water. That's where these ice molds have come in handy. Two of these spears or three of the cubes fit into my tumbler and keep my drink cold for hours.

These silicone molds are easy to use and even easier to pop the ice right out of them. The best part is that these molds can be used for more than just ice. I've already used the square ones to make mini cheesecakes in which nothing has stuck whatsoever.

These are great molds and I am happy with them.

{Fitness Tracker Review} Willful SW330 Waterproof Fitness Tracker #willful #fitness #tracker #fitnesstracker

Hey everyone!

I am so excited to show you all this great product. All information is located below along with links to the product and, of course, my review. So, let's get into it.

My Thoughts


There are so many different fitness trackers on the market I honestly couldn't tell you where to begin to pick out one that would be right for you. Honestly, I go for ones that are in my price range and then go from there.

That's where this fitness tracker comes in, while it's not on the pricey side it's packed with great functions and the app is pretty awesome too which makes this tracker easier to use, keep up with your sleeping habits, calories burned, steps, and so much more. I've just been using it for the last few days and it's become a staple of my accessories, with the only time I take it off is to shower.

Now, there are a few cons but way more pros. It's easy to charge on a USB charger or even through a computer USB port. However, it doesn't come with a charger or USB plug so you do have to buy it separately if you don't already have one. However, it charges within an hour or less depending on how drained the battery. The tracker does come with two bands but you can't buy extra so if one of them breaks that's it for that band. So if my purple band breaks I have a black backup but that's it. The band itself, however, is a great size and fits even my fat wrists, which really says something. However, the buckle part of the band is made from plastic and not metal, which is a major con for me because as soon as the buckle breaks that's it for the band that you can't buy replacements of. For the tracker itself, it's easy to use with just a swipe of the screen and you can easily see your heart rate, steps taken, miles traveled, and calories burned.

Overall this tracker isn't close to being a Fitbit but it's great for keeping track of the important things like heart rate and steps. I know it says that it can do a lot more like let you know when you have messages and stuff but honestly I don't care about that stuff. I want it to do just what it does and it does it well. I am happy with my tracker and love wearing it.
