I am not one to perpetuate busy (we’re all busy, we just have different priorities), but the past few weeks have been non-stop. To the point where I haven’t been able to make it to the grocery store. And sushi delivery knows I like extra spicy mayo with my tuna rolls. So when PlateJoy offered me a week of healthy, fresh, and ready to prepare meals, I answered with my stomach.

The delightful Marilyn was my grocery shopper. She called from the grocery to okay a substitution (white instead of whole wheat pitas), wore the most fabulous green octagon sunglasses, and brought me flowers. She’s pretty much the best.
For my meals, I picked three new-to-me dishes that were all quite tasty.
The Mediterranean artichoke and feta pita pizza was ready in under 15 minutes, and was easy to pre-prep for lunch the next day. I love that my recipes came with single serving instructions and I ended up getting three meals out of the ingredients.
The Fusili with lemon pesto and spinach was an unexpected delight. The pesto was made from spinach, sunflower seeds, jalapenos, lemons, and olive oil and was bright and savory at the same time. I have enough of the shelf-stable ingredients on hand to make this recipe several more times.
I am addicted to phở but have never made it at home before. This vegetarian pho was light and flavorful and and I was especially pleased with how easy it was to whip up on a weeknight.
Other little things I love about PlateJoy:
- They email and send printed recipe cards, so if you like something, you have all the instructions to make it again in the future.
- Nutritional information for each meal is available online.
- They were on time and all ingredients were fresh and perfect.
- If you need any of the basic ingredients required for a recipe, they’ll pick them up for you at cost. If you need a roll of toilet paper, they’ll pick that up for you, too.
If you’re busy busy busy, need some new recipe ideas, or would rather read a book than go to the grocery, I highly recommend PlateJoy.
