Here at Diabetes Daily, we recently tried out several different meal kit delivery services and we learned that while pricey, they did save us a lot of time and mental efforts when it came to preparing meals for our family. One of the caveats for our family’s meals is that we often eat a lower-carb diet to help optimally manage our type 1 diabetes, while other family members may eat a little bit higher carbohydrate than we do, not entirely avoiding items like pasta and potatoes.
One of the reasons we chose to try out the Sun Basket meal kit delivery service was because they seemed to offer a lot of different options we thought would be able to meet our very low-carb requirements while also offering additional options that would please other family members. We received several meal kits and snacks at no charge and all opinions are my own.
Sun Basket offers a variety of meal kit delivery plans and strives to provide numerous options, including, among others:
The company aims to source their food responsibly and be environmentally-friendly by working with local farmers and ensuring that their packaging is recyclable whenever possible. Also, over 99% of the food shipped by Sun Basket is organic.
Excitingly, the company offers a variety of meal types, including breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snack items as well.
We sampled the following items from Sun Basket:
Overall, we were very happy with the product packaging (complete in a brown paper bag), protein and produce quality, as well as with the ease of following each recipe.
We thoroughly enjoyed all of their meals and found them to be easy on our blood sugars. One stand-out was the steak with roasted sweet potatoes. I had never tried chimichurri before and was pleasantly surprised by the flavor. Also, I am a sucker for sweet potato fries and the little cubes only took a few minutes in my air fryer. I plan on preparing them this way moving forward. I also enjoyed the other meals and found the instructions very easy to follow and perfect for the cook-challenged.
Overall, here at Diabetes Daily, we were very happy with the meal kit and snack options offered by this company. We like the idea of having the a-la-carte options when it comes to the snacks, in addition to the variety of meals that are offered each week. We appreciated the organic protein and produce and was very pleased to see that everything was very fresh. The available options made it easy for us to stick to lower-carb eating while allowing our families the option of having more carbohydrates on the side. If you’re considering investing in a meal kit delivery service, Sun Basket should definitely be on your radar, especially if you need a variety of options to please your family!
