This past week, I tried my first meal-kit delivery service with Terra’s Kitchen. I honestly did not know what to expect, but I was surprised that I really enjoyed the service. I travel often for both work and pleasure and when I return home, the last thing I want to do is grocery shop. This service would allow me to schedule a meal-kit so healthy and delicious meals are waiting for me at my door step. Here is the skinny on Terra’s Kitchen.
Terra’s Kitchen is a Farm to Front Door meal delivery service where you can enjoy chef designed meals that are packaged in eco-friendly climate controlled vessels that are delivered to your door. Terra’s kitchen incorporates organic, non-gmo, antibiotic & hormone free seasonal & sustainable ingredients into their menu’s, when possible. Every recipe (except the ready-made salads or snacks) are accompanied by menu cards. These cards not only give you a step by step instruction on how to prepare the meal, but also provide nutrition content and wine & beer pairings. Wine pairing suggestions are by grapefriend. Time to Table for every meal I made was less than 30 minutes. I loved that everything is perfectly portioned – which means no waste. Ever purchase a vegetable or other ingredient for a recipe where all you need is one cup and the rest goes to waste? No waste here. Depending on the recipe, you literally just have to dice, mix or sauté – and dinner is DONE. My favorites from my first meal delivery were the ready-made salads, the Southwestern Steak and Sweet Potato Bowl and the Greek Pasta Salad.
I loved that most of the veggies are already chopped – which means little assembly required and less dirty dishes. No grocery list is required and no grocery trips are required. Truth – I am not the most efficient grocery shopper. When I make my own meals, I visit the grocery store 3-4 times a week – maybe more. The only items that I used that were not included in my Terra’s Kitchen packages were oil, salt and pepper – which most of us should already have in our pantry.
How do you get started? Visit Terra’s Kitchen website – Click Here ! It is easy to navigate. You create a User ID and Password and you are now ready to add meals to your shopping cart. I like that you can filter the meal options by low-calorie, paleo, vegetarian and gluten-free. For my first delivery, I did select the paleo option. Since I am single, I ordered the meal delivery option for two people. This is great, because I can have lunch or dinner prepared for two days. Since last week, Terra’s Kitchen has added new items to their menu, so I am looking forward to trying some new dishes.
Once you place your order with Terra’s Kitchen, you will receive a tracking number. If you have questions about your order, their customer care is very responsive. In fact, one day, I contacted them early in the morning and I did not expect a response, but to my surprise they contacted me immediately which was great.

I think this service is perfect for singles or families that want to have a nutritious and delicious meals without having to spend hours in the kitchen. Use that extra time to bring your family back to the table and focus on being together. The reduced time to table gave me back time – which is invaluable. If you decide to try this service, let me know your experience. Would love to hear which meals are your favorite!
