….kits be the answer?.

"FORGET the dull trudge down the supermarket aisle, and keep your thumb away from that takeaway app there is a third option for dinner. The growing food trend is meal delivery kit services, where pre-portioned ingredients arrive in the post, ready for you to whip up into a meal at home without having to go shopping.

As well as being more convenient, firms like Blue Apron and HelloFresh make cutting down on food waste a selling point, as they only send …"

Tried these-not worth it.

We had that when I was a child-frozen tv dinners! Don't really think these would be any better!

HEB here in Texas has their own brand of prepacked meals that are actually pretty good. Run 4-8 dollars depending on ingredients and portion size.

I am prepared to discover that one of these genuinely adds value, but so far what I've seen is the delegation of a simple task for a lot of money.

the delegation of a simple task

Not just a simple task, but an enjoyable one. SWMBO and I used to love going grocery shopping with the little anklebiters. We would discuss things like planning, nutrition, price per unit, etc. (as well as manners, inside voice, walking in single file and being respectful of others – the grocers is a public place) That eventually led to how do you make a trade-off between quality and price and other higher order things (or what are our social responsibilities in a public place).

Plus, it's time to spend together talking and participating in mild exercise. Much better than zoning out in front of a screen.

So … with what do we replace the saved time and effort?

Actually, more food is wasted or thrown away because people who don't understand 'sell by' or 'best by' dating on food items.

Canned goods are shelf stable for 7 years after the date printed on the can. And while the recommended cut off for milk and cream is 7-10 days, I have safely used both for at least 2 weeks beyond the sell by date. Cheese actually ages and mild cheddar will become 'sharp' stored unopened in the back of the frig for 6 months or more.
