Cooking weekly dinners is something we’re super intentional about. I’m often asked about meal planning, because I do it religiously, and it makes life so much easier. However, last week Sun Basket took the load off us! And I want to take the load off you, so make sure to enter our giveaway for a free week of Sun Basket meals!
The Sun Basket box arrived refrigerator packed with fresh ingredients I pre-selected from their weekly menu. First up, we tried the pan-roasted salmon. We’re not talking farm-raised fish. This wild caught salmon is the real deal. We followed the recipe card and in less than half an hour all three of us scarfed down this flavorful and flaky salmon dinner. PS – sometimes wild-caught salmon can taste extra fishy, but whether because it was so well-seasoned or just super fresh, both Ryan and I remarked how much we enjoyed the taste. The artichoke pilaf side paired really well with the salmon, plus I’ve never cooked with fregola before (it’s a lot like cous-cous) so was excited to not only try a new recipe but a new ingredient all together.

Ryan wins MVP of the house while I’m pregnant. He’s taken over dinner-making duties on many a night since growing a human pretty much zaps your energy. He’s a keeper. We annihilated the lemongrass and coriander-crusted pork loin with Asian greens before getting any photos, but suffice it to say, it was real good. Equally important to us, the meat was hormone and antibiotic free!
Hard to pick a favorite but the grilled sirloins with roasted poblanos and New Mexican chile sauce had me wishing I was eating for more than just two. Oh and three cheers for grass-fed beef.
Overall, I was super impressed with the quality of the ingredients. I feel a little crazy admitting there are days when I travel to as many as three separate grocery stores for hard to find grass-fed, pasture raised meats or organic, non-GMO produce. To have it all delivered is such a luxury. Also when comparing similar services, it can be tricky for me to find dairy-free options, so it’s worth mentioning how accommodating Sun Basket is of various food aversions. Now your turn! If you’re into it and want to try it out, we’re giving away a free week of meals on my Instagram!
