Gousto Food Box Subscription Review

May 9, 2017 No Comments

I have never tried a food box subscription that actually provides every ingredient and I do mean EVERY ingredient, you need to plan and prepare meals with. So, when I had the opportunity to try out Gousto, I was pretty excited.

For those that have never heard of Gousto, it is a food subscription box but the great thing about it is its flexibility.

Each week there are 22 recipes to choose from and you can have your food box weekly, fortnightly or monthly at dates and time to suit you and your needs. You also have the option to pause or skip your subscription at any time too.

So, what do you get in each box?

  • Recipe boxes contain everything you need to cook up to 4 delicious meals for 2 or 4 people
  • Freshness Guaranteed
  • High welfare British Meat
  • Easy to follow recipe cards
  • Woolcool packaging that keeps your food fresh even when you’re not at home

As you can see, everything comes really well packaged, chilled and insulated to keep all your ingredients as fresh as possible. I was really impressed just how well they packaged all the different ingredients. Even the fresh meat was kept so well chilled, in the insulated cooler bag.

I choose the following 2 recipes which were:-

  • Quick Persian Lamb Couscous
  • Lemon Pepper Chicken & Rosemary Potatoes

You get an easy to follow recipe card for each meal you chose, so if you enjoy your meal once cooked, you can, of course, keep the recipe and use it cook from again. I find that super handy!

 

Lemon Pepper Chicken & Rosemary Potatoes

I nearly forgot, that also included was a fab wooden spoon too, with the Gousto logo on it.

So, pictured above are all the ingredients that were needed to make the Lemon Pepper Chicken & Rosemary Potatoes recipe.

Now, I am not physically able to cook due to illnesses,  so Andy cooked both of these recipes and he said they were extremely easy to follow.

I can, however, eat them and it was really delicious. I really loved the rosemary potatoes and the chicken was really tender and juicy. A really lovely recipe and one we will definitely be buying the ingredients for again!

It’s so convenient to have everything you need from the main ingredients such as the lamb mince, right down to all the necessary herbs and spices.

Another, super easy and quick recipe to follow and make.

This one went down really well with Andy. I tried some but this just wasn’t for me. I much preferred the chicken dish.

But that is another thing that is so great with this subscription. It allows you to try recipes you think you might like and if you’re not too keen then you haven’t got extra ingredients that will be gathering dust in your kitchen cupboards if you happen to not like it.

Gousto has plenty of variety in their 22 recipes each week, and you can even search through recipes for, family friendly, vegetarian, quick and easy etc.

I really do think it is a fabulous food subscription box for people who love to cook on a regular basis and for those maybe just branching out into experimenting with cooking.

You can find more great recipes and product reviews from our friends at the Village Bakery

  • So when I purchased the Honey Potion from @Beautylish about 3 months ago, I also purchased these bad boys from @goodmolecules too! 😀⠀ ⠀ I haven't cracked them open yet though as I already have a few serums/oils in rotation at the moment. So, I don't want to waste products by opening these yet.⠀ ⠀ This is the Super Seven set & cost me $56!!! For seven products - can you believe that!? 😲⠀ ⠀ These are the seven products you get:⠀ ⠀ 💠Hyaluronic Acid Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Niacinamide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Overnight Exfoliating Treatment Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Squalane Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Super Peptide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Wake Up Eye Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ ⠀ I'm really looking forward to using them - trust me it's killing me not to open them already!⠀ ⠀ Since I purchased these they have actually brought out four more products, which I will aim to purchase at some point in the future.

  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀ ⠀ Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀ ⠀ Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub. (Citrus Blend) ⠀ ⠀ Smells amazing, leaves my face clean, soft, moisturised and gently exfoliated - not tight and dry like some products can. 😍⠀ ⠀ Such a great way to recycle the coffee grounds too. 😀⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite exfoliator to use? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #coffeescrub #veganfacescrub #scrub #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #instaskincare ⠀ #organicskincare #cleanbeauty #upcircle #upcirclebeauty #repurposed #repurpose #upcycle #upcycled #circularskincare #circulareconomy #coffeeskincare #caffeinatedskincare #sustainablecosmetics #coffeewaste #coffeerecycling #cleanskincare #veganskincare #greenskincare #skincarecommunity #plantbasedbeauty #plantbasedskincare #skincareroutines #skincarebloggers
  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
  • {gifted} I don't really like wearing foundation so this 'Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base' by @touchinsol_ldn is perfect for me. It's not only a great base to use under your makeup but also makes your skin glow all on its own! 😍⠀ ⠀ I happily wear this without feeling the need to put foundation on, or even a BB or CC cream. ⠀ ⠀ Of course, it is a honey & collagen-based primer with a host of natural extracts & vitamins, so no wonder it makes the skin look, radiant and, for want of a better word, bouncy! 🍯 ⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite primer/base to wear alone or under makeup?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #touchinsol_ldn #mmcl_ldn #primer #skincare #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #discoverunder20k #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #kskincare #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #theblogtribe ⁣#화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⁣ #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #kbeauty #abskincare #abblogger #instablogger #kbeautyblogger #petitejoys #theeverygirl #touchinsol⠀
