◂◂ FIRST IMPRESSIONS▸▸
My order arrived on time and communication between myself and Everdine was great – I always appreciate fantastic customer service! The website is really simple to use and you can choose the meals you would like, or take them up on the suggestions that are available. There are veggie and classic options, or you can combine the two.
When the box arrived I noticed that it was filled with ice packs to ensure my food was kept frozen. So all I had to do was unpack my box and pop my meals in the freezer. All of the meals I choose I could microwave from frozen and the packaging is all microwave safe too. I really appreciated the simplicity of it, as when you are busy it can be difficult to grab yourself a healthy, nutrient dense lunch. I chose to transfer my meals to a plate, but you could eat them straight from the box they come in making them perfect to take to work with you.
The packaging of the meals themselves was sturdy, practical and really cute. All of the relevant information is on the outer sleeve, cook time, storage information and suggestions etc, and the little patterns are adorable. In fact, I really enjoyed the branding as a whole! It was really simple but on-trend too.
The thing that stood out to me the most, however, was how colourful the meals were. Usually, I am reluctant to eat ‘healthy meals!' I am that person looking glum over my salad, but these meals looked incredible! People were looking at my plate in envy.
