Don’t Change Much picks Chefs Plate as the top meal kit delivery service in Canada

Mankind has come a long way when it comes to dinner. Sure, hunting a woolly mammoth was probably pretty exciting back in the day, but it’s hard to beat picking up your phone and having 700 chicken wings delivered to your door in minutes. Now THAT’S progress!

That is, until you get a hefty bill for all those food delivery orders, and you start to look and feel like a woolly mammoth after eating all that greasy, salty junk food.

That’s where the recent rise of meal-kit delivery comes in. These subscription services combine the time-saving convenience of restaurant take-out with the cost-savings, nutrition and great taste of home-cooking. In fact, these inexpensive, easy-to-use services are so good for your health and wallet that Don’t Change Much has partnered with Canada’s own Chefs Plate to offer guys a special deal:

Sign up here, or apply the Promo Code DONTCHANGEMUCH at Checkout, to get 40 percent off your first Chefs Plate box and ANOTHER 40 percent off your second box.

Here’s how Chefs Plate works:

They create menus for you

People have used menus for centuries, and for good reason. Not only do they list what’s available to eat, they also give you ideas. Chefs Plate does the same thing. Using its website or app, you can choose from one of four meal plans: Classic, Family, Vegetarian and 15-Minute.

That last meal plan was one of the reasons we chose to partner with Chefs Plate. You’re a busy guy, and busy guys need to eat ASAP! The other reasons we joined forces with Chefs Plate is that the service is available across the country (with free delivery in most areas), has been endorsed by Don’t Change Much Champion Chef Ned Bell, and uses healthy ingredients that taste great and are easy to prepare. On that note…

They shop and do plenty of prep for you

Grocery shopping takes time you may not have, so Chefs Plate delivers all the fresh ingredients you need right to your door. Recent mouth-watering dishes created weekly by the Chefs Plate team include Hot Honey Buffalo Chicken with warm potato salad and roasted broccoli, and Tex-Mex Halloumi Fajitas with blackened peppers and garlic-chipotle crema. (Heads up: The rotating menu means that dishes change from week-to-week.)

A special insulated box keeps the food just as fresh (or fresher) than in the supermarket, and everything is portioned and ready for you to work your magic. Not much of a magician in the kitchen? No problem…

YOU close the deal

With all the ingredients ready to go in front of you, putting meals together is easier than assembling anything from Ikea or the hardware store. Just follow the step-by-step instructions, and before you know it a delicious dinner is served! With proven recipes from Chef’s Plate in your corner, you can build confidence in the kitchen. An added bonus: Impressing your partner with your new culinary skills! Guys are deemed to be sexiest when they’re whipping up meals, after all.
