With everything life’s been throwing at you these days, it makes complete sense to sign up for a meal kit subscription that can help simplify your life. However, not any meal subscription will do - you need one that’s affordable, easy to prep, and downright delicious. Oh - and it has to meet the high expectations of each member of your household as well (i.e. your kids).

Luckily, EveryPlate checks off the above criteria and never fails to exceed expectations. Not only is it one of the most affordable meal subscriptions available today, but it also offers tons of weekly options to choose from that satisfy a wide range of palates.

Here, I’ll take a look at 5 deliciously easy meals from EveryPlate that go easy on the wallet and are sure to be crowd-pleasers among your family. Each meal takes 30 minutes or less and only costs $4.99-$5.89, depending on the plan you choose.

5 Deliciously Easy Meals From EveryPlate That Go Easy on the Wallet

1. Gravy Steak & Mashed Potato Bowls with Honey-Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Carrots

EveryPlate Gravy Steak & Mashed Potato Bowls with Honey Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Carrots

Want a hardy classic? Then this is the meal to try!

This family-favorite dish from EveryPlate is sure to impress both adults and children as it comes with good-’ol mashed potatoes and steak. It also manages to sneak in carrots and Brussels sprouts, but the gravy goodness and honey drizzle will help disguise their vegetable nature for your younger diners.

This meal only requires 6 steps to complete. Basically, you’ll just need to boil the potatoes, roast the veggies, grill the steak, make the sauce, and then serve.

Each serving is 630 calories and contains 58 g carbs, 34 g protein, and 31 g fat.

2. Roasted Bell Pepper Flatbreads with Creamy Tomato Sauce & Mozzarella

While you can’t give your kids (or yourself, for that matter) pizza every night, this flatbread makes a healthier and just as tasty alternative. It’s also perfect for your family members who aren’t the biggest meat-eaters and prefer more of a flexible vegetarian diet instead.

This meal only involves 6 steps in which you roast the veggies, bake the flatbreads, make the sauce, and then top off the flatbread with the remaining ingredients and bake for just a little longer.

Each serving is 610 calories and contains 72 g carbs, 19 g protein, and 30 g fat.

3. Cajun Chicken Sandwiches with Roasted Potato Wedges & Secret Sauce

EveryPlate Cajun Chicken Sandwich

While you may not be able to afford to buy your favorite fast-food chicken sandwich for lunch every day, this meal will at least fill your weekly cravings for it. Better yet, we can guarantee you’ll get a bigger portion of chicken than you normally would and the potato wedges are much better for you than the typical mystery oil-drenched fries.

This meal is among one of the easiest to make and only requires 5 steps. All you have to do is bake the potato wedges, make the sauce, grill the chicken, heat the buns, and then set your plate.

Each serving is 880 calories and contains 79 g carbs, 37 g protein, and 46 g fat.

4. Turkey & Pineapple Tacos with Spicy Pickled Onion & Lime Crema

EveryPlate Turkey Pineapple Tacos

Taco Tuesday you say? Great! Give this tropical spin from EveryPlate a try.

Rather than use ground beef or chicken, these tacos are made with turkey and flavored with pineapple, jalapeño, lime, and spices to create an incredible combination of sweet, savory, and a little spicy.

This meal only needs 5 steps to complete which involve preparing the fruit and veggies, creating the sauce, browning the turkey, warming the tortillas, and then combining everything together.

Each serving is 700 calories and contains 75 g carbs, 36 g protein, and 31 g fat.

5. Blistered Tomato & Feta Penne with Italian-Seasoned Kale

EveryPlate Tomato Feta Pasta

If you’re into Mediterranean dishes, then this is the one to try. It combines penne pasta along with tomatoes, feta, kale, and cream cheese, and is by far one of the easiest dishes to make.

This meal only requires 5 steps total which involve cooking the pasta, sauteeing the veggies, and then combining all ingredients together.

Each serving is 630 calories and contains 80 g carbs, 19 g protein, and 29 g fat.
