As many of us continue to stay at home more than usual, finding new ways to make creative, easy and healthy dinners is a priority for many. Recently, I tried out a meal kit delivery service from Gobble and thought I would share my thoughts as a mom of two living with type 1 diabetes.
I received the products at no charge and all opinions are my own.
Who They Are
Gobble is a meal kit delivery service that aims to make delicious, home-cooked meals fast and easy to prepare. Everything you need is sent out perfectly portioned, and each meal takes about 15 minutes to make. They offer a great variety of dinner menus and incorporate a lot of classic dishes that can please all kinds of palates, including kids’!
You can select from the traditional Gobble box dinner plan that features classic dishes, or opt for the Lean and Clean version, which features “lean proteins, healthy fats, and under 600 calories per serving” while still delivering the “and convenience and flavors of Gobble’s 15-minute dinner kits.”
For each option, you can select to have dinner delivered for either two or four people, either three or four days per week. You can customize your choices, and request accommodations for dairy-, nut-, and gluten-free items. Meals start as low as $11.99 per serving, and you can skip deliveries or cancel your subscription hassle-free.
I tried out three different meals from Gobble and was impressed with all of them:
Pan-Roasted Chicken with Green Bean Casserole & Mashed Potatoes: This one was a classic and rustic choice. We all enjoyed it, and I just skipped the mashed potatoes, to make life easier for blood sugar management. The green bean casserole was delicious and the skin on the chicken came out super crispy! My husband and four-year-old daughter loved it, too!
Miso-Glazed Salmon with (Soba) Noodles & Snow Peas: I am the fish-eater in the family, so I was thrilled to receive a well-portioned a fresh-looking piece of skin-on Salmon. Again, preparation was easy-to-follow, and quick, and the meal came out great! One caveat: I substituted my own edamame noodles in place of the Soba noodles to keep the carb count down. Delicious!
Citrus Chicken & Broccoli Stir Fry: This meal was an option from the “Lean and Clean” plan, and it was super quick to make! Most of the dinners I eat are basically some protein and non-starchy vegetables, so this was right up my alley. The sauce was a bit sweet, but I used it sparingly and was able to enjoy this filling and delicious meal without a blood sugar spike, which is always a win!
The two big factors that make the Gobble meal kit delivery service a winner in my book are:
- They do not skimp on the protein!
- The meals are really quick and easy to make (and most importantly, taste great, of course!)
