One Potato Box Review
I’ve been having the hardest time feeding my boys who are 12 and 14. They’re growing like crazy, are somewhat picky eaters and I want to feed them healthy food. These things make dinnertime especially difficult. One Potato is a meal delivery service whose goal is to feed families organic, healthy food that everyone in the family will enjoy. My family was given a sample week of delicious One Potato meals.
One Potato meals are made with organic ingredients and delivered to your door in a box. The meals are made with kids in mind and can be customized in different ways. You can choose vegetarian, gluten free, the number of adults and kids, and how many meals you want for the week. You can pick your meals out of a few new choices for the week or standard meals that are available every week.
We had the 3 meal Six Potato Plan that is listed as being family size for 2 adults and 2 teenagers (or 2 adults and 4 small children). It’s $131.70 with free shipping in California. My husband has Celiac so we did gluten free, which added $1.50 per adult meal.
Our meals included Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry with brown rice, Chicken Arepas with a Stuffed Avocado and Stuffed Pasta Shells with salad. All of our meals were amazing. Honestly, I don’t buy all organic food so having three organic meals was a treat. I made the Beef and Broccoli first.
Putting together the meal was quick and easy. All I had to do was cut up the skirt steak and peppers and make the brown rice then stir fry the meat and vegetables. We all had seconds and had some left over for one of us to have for dinner the next night.
The box came with gluten free red velvet cookie dough. The cookies were wonderful and didn’t last long.
Our next meal was the Arepas dinner and it was the best because my 12-year-old made most of it.
I didn’t get a good picture of the stuffed shells because I had run 18 miles that afternoon so my husband made dinner while I ate most of it. It was really amazing – tasty sauce and a lovely salad on the side. My picky eater boys didn’t have any, but there was enough of the other leftover dinners for them to have.
We really enjoyed One Potato. We had three meals in our box, but we made many meals out of it. I used the leftover chicken from the arepas recipes to make tacos for my boys. My husband and I had the leftover stuffed shells for lunch for a week. The shells were so good and not like anything my husband has had since before he was diagnosed with Celiac 18 years ago (see the gluten free information on the One Potato site).
Because we had such a good experience with our sample box, I ended up signing up for a 2 meal plan. I didn’t love our first meal (the sweet and sour sauce was too sweet), but I did love the second meal of One Pan Chicken with Polenta Fries. The chicken was baked over caramelized onions and lemon and cooked with Brussels sprouts, potatoes and olives. Again, my 12-year-old made one of the meals and I’m so happy that he’s interested in making food and is happy to eat it.
We’ll probably end up skipping a week here and there, but we’re going to stick with the One Potato Box delivery for now.
One Potato was co-founded by Weelicous founder Catherine McCord. We did a Facebook live with Catherine and made a meal with her in her home. Check out our Facebook Live below.
