What I liked about the Gousto Website
- Super easy to use.
- The calorie content of every meal is displayed making it easy for you if you are counting calories like me.
- There is a wide selection of meals from Mexican Pork Chilli with Apple Salsa to Smoked Mackerel Nicoise and you can choose which meals you would like. The recipes change weekly.
- Delivery is free.
- You can choose family sized boxes or boxes for 2 and they are flexible with how many meals you choose.
- There is no commitment.
We selected two meals to test out and they were delivered in a special cool box which will actually keep your chilled food at the optimum temperature until midnight on your delivery day.
Meal One - Thai Pork Salad with Lemongrass Rice
|Everything is provided|
|The correct size portion of Thai Curry Paste|
|Our vegetables were in perfect condition|
|Easy to follow instructions on the back of the recipe card|
|Nutritional information has already been calculated|
|Easy enough for an amateur to prepare|
|This was the first time I've cooked 'proper' rice and it was very easy!|
Wow we absolutely loved the Thai Pork dish - it was so easy to make, delicious and very filling. We couldn't believe it was under 800 kcals. The good thing about Gousto boxes is if you don't want to use them every week, if you use them on an ad-hoc basis they are great for getting you out of a cooking rut and giving you ideas for future meals.
Meal Two - Pork with homemade apple sauce and cheddar
Would I recommend Gousto? 100% yes. It is ideal for those weeks where you don't really have time to recipe plan but still want to cook from scratch and prepare a meal that is healthy (and you know the calorie content of). If you are a new customer you can receive £15 off your first order (follow the link on the Gousto homepage). Our two person recipe box retails at £27.49 and the more recipes you buy, the cheaper it becomes. It is only £41.99 for 4 recipes for 2 people which I think is ideal for mid-week suppers and around the same I would probably spend if I went to the supermarket anyway.
I don't think I could order every week (as I do like planning our own recipes too) but will definitely re-purchase every few weeks, especially when we are busy and don't have time to make dinner plans.
Thanks to Gousto who sent us a complimentary recipe box in return for this review. All thoughts and words are our own.
