Dinner Thyme

          I recently had the opportunity to check out a new-to-me meal delivery service, Dinner Thyme. Dinner Thyme was the original cook-at-home meal delivery service; they started in 2010 in Manhattan and over the past several years expanded throughout the eastern US including Boston.

          I've tried lots of different meal delivery services over the past couple of years, and several things about Dinner Thyme immediately stood out to me:
  • All of the meals are designed to be cooked in 15 minutes (and the vegetables and herbs come chopped already)
  • The options are incredibly flexible and they are the only company that offers single portions (although you can order more)
  • You get 9 different menu options (weekly) to choose from
  • They are there for people "on the go", people who don't have 45 min - 1 hour to cook a meal
          Dinner Thyme posts their menus on their website several weeks in advance, and you can customize orders based on your preferences. I was able to find 2-3 gluten free meals available each week, and found that most meals could be made gluten free with slight substitutions if you keep a few basics in your pantry (pasta, flour, etc.).

          I tried two meals: Jerk Chicken with Mango Salsa and Curry Rice, and Pork Chops with Apricot Sauce and Glazed Carrots.

           Both were delicious, and really were done in under fifteen minutes with minimal prep work. I also appreciated that both meals were relatively low calorie at about 500 calories each. Dinner Thyme really is a quick, easy, and healthy alternative for weeknights when I come home from work and don't want to spend a lot of time preparing dinner!

           Now for the best part: If you want to try Dinner Thyme, you can get $20 off using the code READYSETCOOK at checkout; that's ~2 free meals!  To get started, check out their website or find them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
