We gave Gutsy Green, the latest food subscription box on the scene a try a few weeks ago and we thought it was really great. Apart from the obvious – hassle free, inventive and healthy ingredients delivered straight to your door. We are happy to report that the recipes were not only tasty, but also super easy to follow.

Gutsy Green is a weekly food service where you can either order from the specific meal plans put together (classic, low carb or vegetarian) or pick and choose the meals you want from each category. The choice is entirely up to you. We thought this was awesome. Some weeks you need a bit of a switcheroo to keep things interesting. We also loved the cute packaging. Our weekly box came with 3 recipe cards and 3 little boxes that held the ingredients for each meal (with the perishables in a separate cooler bag). All the ingredients were pre-packed and individually measured out to eliminate waste and to make the process that much easier. Chef inspired meals with easy step by step instructions to cook them yourself = WIN!

Gutsy Green Cape Town Food subscription box

We ordered the low carb plan and our three meals included:

Succulent stuffed chicken with sides.
The stuffed chicken was moist and packed with flavour with butternut and spinach to go with it.

Lamb Koftas with cous cous
This was a fun dish to prepare because it was a first for us. The lamb koftas had lots of flavour and the fresh cous cous, yoghurt and squirt of lime added the Mediterranean vibe.

Gutsy Green - Low Carb

Hoisin Beef Stirfry 
This was our favourite dish of the week (even though someone ate the carrot for lunch). Those beetroot crisps were delicious and the steak, hoisin sauce and corn flavours were wonderful together.
