You can uncheck foods you dont eat to prevent from getting them.  I uncheck fish because it never tastes right when it is shipped.  iI personally prefer some other services (plated.com and hellofresh.com), because I like their menus better.

If you feel like using a coupon, you can use my referral codes!

Plated.com: 1b0d87 (2 free plates)

Hellofresh.com: D8CDA2 ($20 off)

I’ve tried Blue Apron for a few weeks. Here’s my take on it:


– You can preview the menu of the week and know what you’re getting. You can cancel if you don’t like the food that week.

– All the food we’ve gotten so far has been pretty delicious and relatively healthy.

– The food is definitely more upscale than the typical dinner I haphazardly throw together on a weekday.

– It’s a fun thing to do as a family or couple for date night. 


– The food can take forever to prep. It can easily take 45-60 minutes to prep one meal.

– Some of the recent menus have had pretty lame options. Really, you want me to pay $20 for 2 BLT sandwiches?

– It’s on the pricey side – if I cook on my own, the cost is way less than $10/meal. But to be fair, my food looks a lot less photogenic and fancy.

I don’t have a lot of time these days for Blue Apron, nor have I liked the recent menus. I’m experimenting with Munchery this week!
