We Tried RealEats, The New, Nutritious Food Delivery Service- So Let’s Get Real
 RealEats, is a newly-launched subscription service that delivers healthy, prepared meals by top chefs. The meals take under 6 minutes to make and are marketed to those who are busy and on the go. It is available to order in select states across the U.S. including Tennessee. Made by some of America’s top chefs using all fresh, never-processed ingredients, RealEats aims to make real food simple. 

Now let’s get Real..We were sent the box of the week to try featuring Glazed Chicken, Spiced Lamb Meatballs, and Buckwheat Soba Noodles.

Glazed Chicken w/ Spicy Ginger Sauce, Red Rice and Mustard Greens

I was very skeptical about this one with it being chicken and having a cook time of only 6 minutes. The chicken came out better than perfect. The rice was also very delicious. The mustard greens were just okay, but I am a girl from the south, so if there isn’t bacon or ham included in cooking and a little hot sauce I wouldn’t enjoy it.  

Spiced Lamb Meatballs w/ Garam Masala Tomato Sauce and Kale Saag

I was pleasantly surprised again on how much I liked the meatballs. I love a good pork or beef meat ball, but the lamb again made me skeptical. The flavor was enormous! I would pick this as my favorite of the three. Though I would make it unhealthy and add noodles. 

Buckwheat Soba Noodles w/ Smoked Salmon and Tofu

The salmon and tofu on this one was just not for me. I really have to spice up and sear tofu to eat it and the salmon scared me with it being raw so I won’t lie to you guys, I did not eat that part. The noodles however were great! Add them to the lamb dish and you win for me!  

The Verdict:

They were easy to store, quick, easy to make, and full of flavor. I would recommend it, maybe not these particular recipes (just not my thing), but there are a lot of choices and the website is easy enough to navigate to pick and choose what menu and week you want a delivery. Bon Appetit!
