{LIFESTYLE } Gutsy Green - Is it worth it ? My mini review on my first meal week

Hi guys ! Happy Wednesday. Hope you are having a great week so far.

Today I have a bit of a lifestyle post for you guys - and it is all about food. Yum ! A little while ago I discovered a great company called GutsyGreen that delivered all the ingredients to make amazing meals at home .

The site is pretty fool proof - you decide on the package you need ( I got the one for 4 people ) and the meals you would like. You can pick the ones that's recommended according to your dietary preferences or pick the ones you would like to try. In my case I picked three meals . They have different options so the choices are endless. What I love most is YOU get to pick what you would like to eat based on any lifestyle preferences. They have classic meals , vegetarian and low carb meals.

The ingredients gets delivered in the exact pre-portioned fresh ingredients on Mondays - and the recipes are pretty easy to use and make. You can also choose to skip a week .. and decide when YOU want them to deliver. Which is a huge bonus. I love how all the nutritional info is on the recipe card too - making it perfect for those who would like to watch calories but still eat yummy healthy food.

Today I'm sharing my first weekly meal box I got and my thoughts on the food I got.

Updated Steak and Potatoes with Fennel Good old Steak and Potatoes! We love this age old classic and tonight we’re adding our own little spin on things with this utterly divine dish of since rubbed sirloin steaks seared and served with some amazing sides. Baked potatoes are taken to new heights as they are topped with sour cream and crispy bacon bits and served alongside some fragrant roasted fennel. Simple, yet elegant and super sophisticated. Your’e in for a treat!

This was such an amazing meal. The portion sizes are HUGE . I loved making this and it was such a perfect meal. The food went perfectly together and I love how yummy the sour cream was for the potatoes. Everything was pretty easy to make - which is a bonus because while I love cooking - I don't like spending to much time in the kitchen. The best part was the smoked crispy bacon bits to use for the potatoes. This one is definitely worth trying if you want to order.

Lemon Butter Crispy Chicken with Fresh Pomegranate and Rocket Salad

Crispy pan fried chicken breasts infused with lemon butter for the most sensationally crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, Winter winner of a meal. Served with a fresh side salad of peppery rocket, Parmesan cheese, baby tomatoes and sweet pomegranate pips, this dish proves again how quick and easy a delicious meal can be.

While I love a good steak , my favourite is always chicken. Again , this meal was super duper easy to put together in no time and I love how healthy and yummy it was. The salad was pretty unique - Rocket and pomegranate salad . This one was super yummy and perfect for the calorie conscience too. The salad portion was huge - and it was such a nice and filling salad.
Beef Rump Steaks with Potato Balls
Meaty rump steaks served with blistered baby tomatoes and crispy Parmesan potato balls. Topped with a rich onion, thyme and cream sauce, the flavours and textures of this dish work beautifully together.

All I can say is - this meal was the most fun to make for me and learnt me so many new things.  I loved making a sauce from scratch (which I have never done before ) and the potato balls was such an easy recipe - but gives you so much inspiration to try things outside the box. . Again - the portions are really decent and I will be making some more potato balls in the future for dinners - they are super yummy.

If you'd like to try out this amazing service - you can use my referral link - You will get 50% off your first box (making it so much more worthwhile to try - GutsyGreenReferalLink and give me some credits for some money off my future orders.

  2. This sounds like an amazing website! I love the fact that the meals are already portioned so you go straight to cooking - no prepping! While I love cooking I dread prepping (cutting onions and mincing garlic are my least favorites!). :)
