More scran for your buck

Fancy a box of family-friendly meal kits delivered to your door each week? Gousto is officially the UK’s best value recipe box… (Sponsored)

It’s the trudge to the shop versus opening the front door; choosing a meal versus choosing a list of things you might eventually make into something edible.

Each week, a beautiful red box arrives on our doorstep as assurance that I’ll never have to stand bewildered in the wrong aisle of our local supermarket again.

In that red box are four perfectly proportioned meal kits, each with food for two adults (which usually has enough to feed our two young kids as well). It means we cook proper meals together, the kids grating and chopping (or casually throwing flour at each other), and learning about food as they go. Some days they fight over who gets to stir the sauce, some days they ignore me and flop on the sofa, but once the food reaches the table so do they and we get to sit together, look into each other’s faces and talk about our days.

Ordering that box takes as long as it takes me to tap my phone four times from the comfort of the sofa. Each week Gousto offers 60 recipes and I tap away, rather than getting home with a burdened bag for life to discover I forgot cornflour and henderson’s relish.

Some meals I chose for the whole family, some spicier ones are just for us, but they all taste great, they’re all easy to cook (some in less than 10 minutes), and they offer the best value of any recipe box in the UK. And, choosing Gousto recipe boxes over supermarket shopping reduces your carbon emissions by a whopping 23%.

So if you fancy giving meal boxes a go, I can heartily recommend Gousto.
