GoReadyMade – October 2018

What is GoReadyMade?

GoReadyMade is a meal delivery service that delivers individually packaged, ready-made meals.  The meals are not frozen and all of the prep work is already taken care of.  Meal containers come inside a sleeve that has instructions for preparing the meals as well as a use-by-date.  There are different weekly plans with about 20 meals to choose from each week.  The option to skip weeks is available, if needed.  Price depends on the number of meals you order.  The plans are:

  • 4 meals = $11.99/meal + $3.99 shipping
  • 6 meals = $9.99/meal + $5.99 shipping
  • 8 meals = $8.99/meal + $7.99 shipping
  • 10 meals = $7.99/meal + $9.99 shipping

Meals

GoReadyMade Butter Basted Chicken.PNG

Butter Basted Chicken with Thyme Carrots and Parmesan Mash

The chicken was a little bland, but the mashed potatoes were delicious!  I noticed that some of the other meals that had raw meat had instructions to season the meat, but this one didn’t.  I think the chicken would have been better if we had seasoned it.  I appreciated that I could just stick this in the oven for 25 minutes and it would be done!

GoReadyMade Cherry Balsamic Pork Chop

Cherry Balsamic Pork Chop with Roasted Potatoes and Broccoli

The sauce tasted too much like vinegar for my taste.  The pork chop was good.  I’m glad it said to season it because I think it would have been too bland without.  We loved the mini potatoes and broccoli!

Beef Steak with Peppercorn Sauce with Herb Roasted Potatoes

This meal was our favorite of the lot.  I think it helps that the steak gets seasoned and pan fried.  We enjoyed the peppercorn sauce with this one more than the sauces that came with the other meals.  The potatoes were delicious! We also got some carrots and green beans that were tasty as well.

GoReadyMade Sweet and Sour Chicken.PNG

Sweet and Sour Chicken with Rice

This meal was our least favorite.  I’m guessing it would have been better if we had made it in the oven, but we took this one for lunch so our only option was the microwave.  I did not like that the sauce contained high fructose corn syrup.  The flavor of this one was okay, but not something I would want to eat again.

Teriyaki Chicken Noodles with Green Beans

Okay so I know I said the steak was our favorite, but that was before we tried the teriyaki chicken.  OH MY GOODNESS! SO DELICIOUS!!  It was an easy meal since the chicken was already cut up.  All I really had to do was cook everything in a pan and BAM! the meal was done.  I could totally see myself ordering this every week, it was that good.

My Thoughts

I seriously love how quick and easy these meals are! They definitely prevent me from picking up fast food because I’m too tired to cook when I get home from work.  I felt a lot better about myself eating these meals than picking up fast food.  All I had to do was stick the container in the oven or microwave, or put the contents in a pan.  I think the longest cook time was 25 minutes, but that was in the oven with absolutely no work required of me.  The quickest meal was about 3 minutes in the microwave.

Since the meals come in individually packaged, this is a great option for the times when you only need enough food for one person and don’t want to eat out or eat the same food over and over again. It’s also makes for a great packed lunch.  With that being said, I would have to try some other meals that can be made fully in the microwave to see if I like them any better than the sweet and sour chicken I had.

Although they offer a large selection of meals in a week, I did notice that there were several repeats from week-to-week. This can be good if you have a favorite that you want to order again, but it’s nice to be able to try different meals so you don’t get tired if eating the same things every week.

I think the price of the meals is pretty fair, especially the more meals you buy.  It can certainly be cheaper than eating out (depending on where you go) and probably healthier.  It’s also similarly priced to some other meal delivery services that require much more work with washing, chopping, measuring, etc.  For anyone who really doesn’t like cooking and/or doesn’t have much time/energy for cooking, I would recommend this service.
