As a busy family, with work commitments, FIFO rosters, play dates, travel – keeping up with the shopping, meal plans, cooking is exhausting.
But what if I told you that you could have home cooked, nutritious meals every night, without planning, shopping or prepping the ingredients.
In fact, all the ingredients and the step by step recipes can be delivered to your door!
It’s called Dinner Twist … and it’s going to put a positive twist on your family meal time!
You basically outsource the planning, shopping and prep … and you get to do the fun part – cooking!
Here’s 5 reasons we love Dinner Twist!
Passion in the Kitchen
Now, I love to cook – but since becoming a mum and a FIFO wife, I just never really get the chance to cook things I love. I’ve lost my passion and creativity for cooking – and part of that is because I just don’t have the mental energy to think about what to cook, let alone actually buy ingredients prep them.
Dinner Twist takes away all the thinking, so all you need to do is enjoy the cooking and creating! I even poured myself a glass of wine while I cooked! And I haven’t done that in quite a while.
Dinner Twist is Versatile!
Now, I know some of you will say, but it’s “adult” food and we have little ones. Well, I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old, so one of the best things about Dinner Twist is your ability to adapt the meals.
So on night 1, we had the Meze Share Platter with Lamb Koftas. Instead of traditional Koftas, I made a heap of meatballs. It made it much more toddler friendly! And they loved the share style platter – although I did end up putting their servings on their normal plates just so they ate a variety and not just the bread!
On night 2 we had Sesame Fish with Honey Soy Rainbow Noodles. We opted for chicken instead of fish (you can tell Dinner Box your preferences). My boys loved helping to prepare this meal and when I served it, I sliced the chicken into strips and served the cucumber separately. It was a hit!
The third meal we cooked was Creamy Tomato Chicken with Brown Rice. On the first night, I forgot to add the sweet potato to the roasted vege, but rather than waste it, I was able to add it to this meal and it was delicious.
I also loved that on the nights where hubby was at work, I was able to create a couple of meals for myself to take for lunch or dinner the next night. Love!
Total disclaimer here – I am no food stylist – and these were all taken on my trusty iphone – but you can see just how delicious all of the meals look, right?
With the average Australian household throwing away over $1000 of food each year, creating less waste is really important to me. With the carefully prepared ingredients list, a lot of the ingredients are used in 2 or 3 recipes, meaning that you’re not left with unused portions of food. I absolutely loved this as my fridge has enough half empty jars in it as it is.
I was a bit concerned at all the packaging – however, it’s actually no different to the amount of packaging you’d create if you shopped at a major supermarket.
And you can imagine my relief when I read that Dinner Twist will actually pick up your foam eskies for reuse and recycle your soft plastics for you too. How cool is that?
They also work with WA suppliers and producers who share their ethos on food, so you can be sure you’re really serving your family a good, healthy meal with local ingredients.
It’s so easy!
You don’t have to think of what to cook, write a list or go to the supermarket!
In fact, Dinner Twist even delivered our fruit for the week!
This makes life so easy! I’m a working mum, hubby is FIFO – time is definitely of the essence. Dinner Twist took away so much stress for us this week! And each meal is designed to be cooked in less than 30 minutes.
On the Thursday before delivery, they emailed me a list of pantry staples that I would need to cook the meals – things like oil, vinegar, dried spices (basic), salt and pepper. Things that I always have in the pantry anyway – but it was great to be able to check so that we were prepared for the whole week!
And because it’s all set out in 6 easy steps (yep there’s even pictures), there’s minimal washing up too! It just gets better and better!
Nutritious & Healthy
One of the things that I’ve really enjoyed about Dinner Twist is that we’ve eaten good, wholesome food each night.
We’ve had vegetables and protein with each meal. And not just token vege – but a variety, more than what I would normally prepare. Hubby has been really impressed with the meals too – he’s so excited we are eating a variety of food.
We really are reclaiming our dinner!
You want more?
There are so many other things I thought of that you could do with Dinner Twist – it would be perfect for busy working families who still want great quality, fresh, easy meals. It’s great if you can cook – and if you can’t. It really is super versatile and will exceed your expectations, I promise!
Would I buy Dinner Twist for my family again – you betcha! In fact, we love it so much we are going to make it a regular addition to our household. Date night without having to drive anywhere or get a babysitter? Yes please! And now I don’t have to think of what to cook!!
