Dinners w/o 6/4:

Sunday – out

Monday
Last week we tried Sun Basket for the first time and loved it. We have never tried any meal delivery services in the past but was intrigued with Sun basket for the following reasons:

  1. 100% Organic
  2. Shipping and packaging material is minimal and 100% recyclable (unlike many other companies)
  3. You can do a family order for 4 (more than enough food for the 5 of us) or a an order for 2 adults – 2 different menu options and you can choose 2 out of 6 dinners each week
  4. Recipes are fresh, good quality and simple
  5. Food lasts for up to 5 days after receiving so you can use later in the week if needed
  6. No commitment and can skip weeks or cancel all together anytime
  7. If you want to try it out with no obligations – here is a link for 3 free meals https://sunbasket.com/3free/michele732586
