The brainchild of friends Timo and James, Gousto was created in 2012 with two things in mind; a desire to cook, and a lack of time – a conflict most of us can relate to today.
It has never been easier to save time when it comes to eating in 2017, even if we are more health conscious than ever before. Life is busy, and with restaurants, fast food and microwave meals aplenty; there’s really no need to prepare anything ourselves.
Unfortunately we’re often ingesting unwanted preservatives and additives from convenience food because we just don’t have the time or energy to cook; woe is us. Ah, wouldn’t it be wonderful to live in a world where we’re able to cook delicious healthy meals from scratch with minimal effort? Well, we do! Enter, Gousto!
You can peruse the Gousto menu of 22 recipes and decide which meals you fancy for the week. These vary from vegetarian Crispy Mushroom Dal & Coriander Chutney to a Lamb Meatball Rogan Josh. All the ingredients are top notch too, with organic veggies, high welfare British meat and sustainably sourced fish.
Hurrah, now you don’t have to go trudging around Sainsbury’s or your local market to get all your ingredients; your Gousto Box is delivered to your doorstep. The exact amount of everything you need, from a handful of chia seeds to a splash of soy sauce is included. There’s step-by-step, easy-to-follow instructions, so there’s no measuring, no wastage, no confusion.
Not a big fan of commitment? You can always skip a week or cancel any time. So if you’re short on time, but still want to make creative, satisfying meals, why not give it a go today?
