I don’t know about you, but the thought of spending my Sunday in a grocery store getting my provisions for the week ahead makes steam come out of my ears. It’s THE most stressful experience, they’re always busy and I can never seem to buy the things I want.
Why don’t you do home delivery? You ask...because I’m a super savvy shopper and I literally can’t spend enough to be able to get it delivered. That was until I came across Gousto. It’s possibly the easiest way to do your weekly shop, you hop on your computer and pick from a range of around 60 recipes each week, you can also add in little extra treats too. You select your delivery date and the rest is taken care of by the Gousto team.
They select your fresh ingredients, British-farmed meats and your treats and box it all up in their super-sustainable packaging. It’ll then arrive on the day you’ve requested…so simple!
I chose the 4-meal box that caters for two people, when it arrived, everything was perfectly measured out right down to spices coming in little sachets to ensure that there’s zero waste, you literally get the exact quantities and the recipe cards to ensure that you get the perfect meal every time.
I have always liked cooking, but I wouldn’t say I was an amazing cook, however with Gousto I learned so many new techniques and tips and tricks to make cooking easy, on average the recipes took me between 30 and 45 minutes to prep and cook which isn’t too bad at all. In my first box I selected the King Prawn Paella, Beef and Mushroom Pie, Fiesta Chicken Fajitas and plant-based Pasta Alla Genovese. They were all super tasty and the paella had a really authentic flavour.
If you’re like me and you love a freebie then you’ll also love the little extras they put in the box for you. In my first box I got a wooden spoon, and I have just opened my second box to a really nice recipe book.
Overall I highly recommend Gousto, the produce is all really high quality, the meals are delicious and the recipes are really easy to follow. It really just takes the hassle out of cooking and you’ll be able to get your life back instead of spending it strolling around supermarkets! Fancy trying Gousto?
