Recipe boxes, i.e boxes of pre-prepared ingredients for a set number of meals, being delivered to your door, sound like a busy mamma's dream come true, but how do you know which box will be family-friendly, hearty (yet nutritious) and purse-friendly?
Cue: Gousto boxes which are simply divine, healthy without scrimping on taste and even Body Coach Joe Wicks is a fan.
Here are five reasons why Gousto boxes are ideal for families:
There's nothing worse after a long day, fumbling around with a misleading recipe card, an overflowing pan of pasta and a sauce that just won't reach it's desired consistency. Gousto's recipes are easy to follow, systematic and have images at each stage so you can continuously check you're at the right place! All you need to worry about, is which recipe you try first!
1) The recipes are easy to follow
Gousto cleverly have a Everyday Favourites range which includes family-friendly recipes including comforting cottage pie, spag bol and fish and chips, which will be a hit with little mouths.
