NCP Blog: Meal Kits Make Meal Prep Easier

What Are Meal Kits?


Meal kits provide you with all the ingredients needed to make a specific dish, often down to the spices. The ingredients are usually pre-measured and portioned, and the kit includes all the instructions you need to make the recipe.


Meal kits have exploded in popularity over the past few years. Many companies sell them online, usually by subscription. You can find options to satisfy nearly any kind of lifestyle preference, such as vegan, vegetarian, low-calorie, organic, and even family-friendly versions for those picky eaters!


You don’t have to buy meal kits online, though. Local grocery stores and other retailers have added these items to their shelves, making it easy to grab them during your regular shopping trip.


Advantages of Meal Kits


Haven’t tried a meal kit yet? Here are a few reasons people like them:


  • Diverse recipes that you might not otherwise try


  • Less waste of ingredients because everything is pre-portioned


  • Saves time in the kitchen and on shopping trips


  • Kits can make healthy eating easier


One reason I like them: it cuts down on decision fatigue. Sometimes the hardest part of dinner prep is deciding WHAT to make!


If you’re interested in trying them out, Epicurious curated a list of 41 options for all types of cooks- you can check it out here.
