Enjoying Healthier Meals at Home with WW Smart Kitchen

Disclosure: We were sent the featured products for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.

I love a recipe box. There is something so lovely about having everything you need for meals delivered right to your door and when I found out about WW Smart Kitchen I couldn’t wait to try it. The thing that makes WW Smart Kitchen different from other recipe boxes is that it’s a partnership between Bearfaced Groceries and Weight Watcher, offering a great range of fresh food accompanied by recipe cards, all with clear calories and Smart Points so you know exactly what you’re eating.

WW Smart Kitchen comes well packaged and includes ice packs so that everything arrives ready to just be popped in the fridge. There’s a choice of three or five meals per box and with each meal to feed two or four people – we were sent a three meal box for four people to review so that we could still cook one meal each evening to enjoy as a family.

The three meals we were sent were Quinoa Stuffed Courgettes, Chorizo Bean Stew and Piri-Piri Chicken with Kale Rice. They were all so different to the things we would usually cook and home and I couldn’t wait to start cooking. Everything was included that we would need to complete the recipes aside from oil, salt and pepper – things that most people would have at home.

The recipe cards were easy to follow and made of coated paper so that they will be long lasting and you can cook the same recipes again and again. I love that WW Smart Kitchen not only sends you meals to cook but teaches you new things to try at home, gives you the confidence to cook with different ingredients and introduces you to recipes you probably won’t have had in the past.

The first meal we cooked was the Chorizo Bean Stew. This was so easy to cook and is a great one pot meal full of flavour that WW Smart Kitchen served with rice. The only slight niggle, comparing WW Smart Kitchen to other recipe boxes is that some of the ingredients were more than we needed. In this case there was 500g of rice when we needed 240g and there was a whole tin of tomato puree when we just needed a tablespoon. I would have preferred to have the exact amounts as it saves time and waste. We often buy these sorts of boxes on self catering holidays as a treat and wouldn’t have anywhere to store the excess.

But, the Chorizo Bean Stew was a hit although very spicy. As we were having it with the children we left the red chilli out of the recipe but the spices still made it quite hot. The flavours were wonderful together and I’ve never thought to serve a stew with rice and it worked really well.

Our favourite meal from the box was the Piri-Piri Chicken. We were able to adapt the recipe to cook the children’s chicken without the marinade and we had ours as the recipe suggested. The flavours of the piri-piri were fantastic and we don’t often eat chicken breasts – usually chicken cut up in a stir fry or one pot dish so having really succulent, flavoursome chicken was a hit in our house.

The Kale Rice was something the whole family enjoyed and so simple to cook – kale and courgettes mixed in with basmati rice, cherry tomatoes and some added flavours too. It was such a nice side dish and something we will definitely be cooking again in the future.

The last recipe we cooked was Quinoa Stuffed Courgettes. We don’t eat many vegetarian dishes in our house and I don’t think I have ever cooked or eaten quinoa before so this really pushed us out of our cooking and eating comfort zone but the recipe was really simple to cook and the finished dish looked lovely.

I loved that each of the meals within WW Smart Kitchen were so different and we could choose a classic or vegetarian box as well as choosing which meals from that week’s selection we would like to receive. WW Smart Kitchen have made it as simple as possible to have healthy, nutritious and low calorie meals that everyone will enjoy.

The finished dishes looked so much nicer than the meals we would typically cook and they contained ingredients that we wouldn’t usually buy but ones we would definitely experiment more with in the future. We loved trying the meals from WW Smart Kitchen and it’s really renewed our enthusiasm for cooking – as well as making cooking such a sociable thing and then enjoying the food together afterwards.

Enjoying Healthier Meals at Home with WW Smart Kitchen - and Win!

WW Smart Kitchen costs as little as Β£3.65 per meal and really saves so much time – as well as taking all the thought out of what you’re having for dinner. With WW Smart Kitchen I can just go to the fridge, get everything out and start cooking without the shopping and planning. For me, the convenience of WW Smart Kitchen and the quality of the meals is fantastic and I would definitely buy their recipe boxes again in the future.
