PeachDish Review

Being a complete foodie, I am always looking to try new foods, especially new recipes that I can make myself. I love to cook, but with kiddos it is not always easy to find new recipes, shop for ingredients, measure portions and still find time to actually cook.

Thankfully, there is a company that knows this struggle, and they take all the planning and (most of) the prep work out of it, leaving only the cooking. Not I can enjoy cooking without all the hassle. Not only that, but I get new, exciting recipes to try(and keep).

PeachDish is such a great asset to anyone wanting to cook more, especially those without much time. The way it works it PeachDish sends you 1 box a week. Each box contains recipes and portioned ingredients to create two delicious meals for 2(or 4).
What I love is that you don't just get ingredients and recipes for 1 main dish, you also get a side(or two), so you have the full meal. You even get surprise desserts, what be better than that?

The week I got featured 2 incredible chicken dishes made from one (pasture raised) roasted chicken, which really made the prep work for the second meal a flash.

There were 3 recipe cards, one was just how to roast the chicken. I already know how, but followed the directions exactly(slightly different than I normally do it) and it came out fantastic.
The first meal was Chicken with Pesto Pasta.
It was delicious. I adore pesto, and this was fresh spinach pasta, not dried, it was so good, the rich flavor of the roast chicken really brought this to life.

As I mentioned, the dishes all have a side, for this meal it was Asparagus Salad.
I was not sure I would like it(I have never eaten raw asparagus believe it or not), and I ended up LOVING it. Since I eat veggies but don't typically love them, that is huge. Ever more amazing is my hubby liked it, and he never eats veggies.

I am sure the delicious Parmesan cheese played a role in how much we liked it, but I had some bites without it and it is still great, which is nice because I've been looking for lower fat/cal ways to eat more veggies, and this is a keeper. It's just lemon juice, salt, pepper and (a little) olive oil. So easy.

I've already made it without the olive oil and cheese(to make it even more diet friendly) and it is still good. So happy I found such a great, simple, healthy recipe.

The next recipe(I did not get any pictures) was Chicken wraps. They had radishes, apples, curry mayo and chicken of course. They were so yummy. I left the mayo off mine since I hate mayo and it's less calories without it and it was still amazing. It worked out well too because hubby loved the curry mayo and he ate the extra on his wrap.

The (spinach?) wraps that this came with were to die for. I could eat them every day. The side dish for this was home made kale chips. I had never made kale chips before, it was easier than I ever though, and they were pretty good, especially since I normally don't like kale. It also came with Tangerine mint "salad".

Both meals had bonus desserts as well which were biscotti and animal crackers. All in all, the recipes, ingredients, portions, bonuses, and ease of preparation are all stellar. It is a bit pricy, but not for what you get, and especially for having it shipped right to you. I would love to get this every week, and I will be talking to hubby to see if we can.

If you are looking for inspiration or just to take the stress of of making real, home cooked meals, I highly suggest giving PeachDish a try. If you do try it, I would love to know what you think and hear about the incredible recipes you get to try.

Be sure to follow PeachDish on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to see all the mouth watering pictures and stay up to date on all things delicious.
