Would this idea help you cook original meals and save time?post #2 of 38/23/13 at 11:53am
That is a neat idea. However, I wouldn't want to pay shipping costs, and I prefer to pick the food that we buy so we don't bring home MSG, high fructose corn syrup, etc. and so that we bring home the brands with Box Tops for Education and good organic produce and meat without antibiotics and growth hormones, etc.
Also what would be even more useful than a recipe that is emailed to me would be a recipe that is printed out on an index card or something similar, maybe coming with the food that is delivered. That way I wouldn't have to sit here at the computer and copy it from my inbox to an index card so that I have it to look at in the kitchen.
Finally, I realize I am not as busy as some mothers, but since I am home most of the time I welcome the chance to go and walk around the store and pick out healthy food for my family. And when gas prices rise even higher, the price of the food that is delivered to my door (if I were to participate in this service) would be through the roof.
I hope this feedback helps. :)post #3 of 310/2/13 at 12:50am
I see how it would be great in some ways, but I'm a little unsure. First of all, the cost of delivery like mentioned above. And really, the cost of the ingredients period - if I'm the one shopping I can choose more affordable substitutes if they happen to be on sale.
If there were options to exclude certain ingredients because I already have them in the pantry that would be a really important option. My only other concern is that I am picky, haha. I don't like some really common ingredients - mushrooms, bell peppers, etc and I'm very selective about ingredients (no artificial colors/flavors, no HFCS, no palm oil, etc) so I might be very difficult to shop for.
Also something to keep in mind would be the tools and dishes required for certain meals. I have a very well stocked kitchen now, but I have plenty of friends with little more than a frypan so that's a potential concern.
If you could do it in such a way to compensate for a huge selection of dietary preferences and make it affordable it sounds like an excellent idea.
