Have you ever had those weeks where all you eat is mac & cheese, quesadillas, & ramen? Yeah me too. Cooking in college can be super fun, but the hard part is grocery shopping, planning, and deciding what to cook.
I am always looking for ways to make my life easier while also saving money, so here is my tip for the week: EveryPlate.
If you have never heard of it before, EveryPlate is a meal subscription box company. When you order a box, they send you all of the ingredients for the meals. This makes cooking sooo easy & they have tons of fun meals as well.
Note: This post contains affiliate links which means that I may receive commission at no cost to you. I only ever promote products that I truly like and would use myself. To see my full disclosure, please see my legal pages HERE.
Each box includes 3 meals, but you can choose if that comes with 2 servings or 4 (I order my boxes with one of my roommates, so we get the 2 serving box). You are able to customize each box & choose the meals that you would like. If you aren’t a fan of a certain protein, you can typically upgrade or change it as well.
When you open it up, you can find all of the produce, condiments, protein, and recipes that you need. It comes in a little box that you can stick directly into your refrigerator to keep it separate from everything else!
The best part about getting the ingredients in this way is that you do not need to buy entire containers of spices, bottles of sauces, or packs of produce that you do not need & BELIEVE ME THIS IS A HUGE MONEY SAVER.
The recipe cards are perfect as well because now you have more ideas of food to make in the future. So if you love a meal and want to buy the full sized ingredients for it, you now know exactly how much you need to remake the recipe. We popped all of ours in a recipe binder that is in our kitchen!
Is it Good?
This may seem like a silly thing to talk about, but yes. It is so good. I have eaten much better since I started using EveryPlate. Here are some of the meals that we have tried so far…
Those were not the best pictures in the world, but look at all of the variety we got in one box! The portions for meals are also so big. Every night that we made a meal, I was completely full and we have had extras in the past as well. For a meal at college, it was awesome to feel full.
How much does it cost?
Here is the best part of this WHOLE blog post (maybe besides the pics of food that I’m still drooling over). EveryPlate is only $4.99 per serving. Where else are you going to get a meal that looks like this for UNDER $5?
If you are a student and register through UniDays, you can get your box for $3.99 per serving too for some extra savings!
How do I get started?
I hope that y’all check out the company because it has saved me so much time as a busy college student and the meals are amazing. Tag me on social media if you make any fun EveryPlate meals because I love seeing what y’all are up to!
