Plated Review & 50% Off Coupon
Plated is a weekly meal and recipe subscription service. So far my husband and I have loved all the meals we’ve tried from them – we’re officially hooked.
One thing I particularly like about this subscription, is that you preview the meals the week before, and they include any allergen information. I’ve found lots of gluten free and dairy free meals that I love, and the recently added vegetarian and vegan options too!
FYI – if you’re a beginner chef like me, make sure to check the difficulty rating on each recipe before you add it to your cart!
One other thing I really like about Plated is that while they are a subscription and offer a discount on meals if you sign up for their membership plan, you also can try the service without signing up for a membership.

The packages are sent with cooler packaging and ice packs and shipped 2-day air so everything arrives cold. The include absolutely everything you need besides pantry basics like salt, pepper and olive oil.
Each recipe card comes with detailed instructions and photos.
I wouldn’t have picked this out myself since it has gluten and dairy, but my husband loves Lasagna, so this was his meal pick. He liked it a lot!
This was my pick for the week. To make it gluten free I subbed in rice for the couscous. (Everything comes in separate bags, so it’s easy to switch out ingredients if you have a food allergy or intolerance).
My husband and I both were surprised by how much we liked this dish (mostly because we don’t normally make dinners with these flavors). The fresh mint with the rice was a delicious touch!
Verdict: I love that Plated is convenient, healthy, and encourages me to try new recipes every week. The few interactions I’ve had with their customer care have been great too! We will definitely keep subscribing to Plated – the value is there for us.
