Good Day Colorado Puts Meal Kits To The Anchor Test

After seeing so many ads and pictures on social media about those meal delivery kits, the anchors of Good Day Colorado decided to put the top brands to the test.

Kirk Yuhnke cooked up Mojito Pork Chops from Home Chef. Meagan O'Halloran tried a veggie enchilada meal courtesy of Green Chef. Greg Dutra whipped up Chinese 5-Spice Salmon sent to us by Blue Apron. Reporter Dan Daru helped us out by trying the pan-roasted chicken recipe from Plated.

Watch the video to see how it turned out and how our guest, Chef Adam Sacks with the Culinary Nutrition Program at Johnson & Wales.

The four brands we tested all offer an introductory discount if you're signing up for the first time to just try it out.  Here are those links:

Home Chef - $30 off first order with a promo code

Blue Apron - $30 off first Delivery

Green Chef - $50 off first order

Plated - one free night

If you're concerned about your delivery and whether it's been kept cold enough in transit, check the temperature of the meat to make sure it follows federal food safety guidelines.
