I’ve known about Simply Good Jars for a while but was sad to learn they were not widely available to the general public, rather as a grab and go meal in offices and other commercial buildings. COVID-19 changed that.
Recognizing a need to get these fresh, prep-free meals delivered to people’s homes during the stay-at-home restrictions brought on by the coronavirus outbreak, they decided to offer home delivery within the Philadelphia area on Wednesdays or Fridays between 10AM-6PM. Brilliant!
There are four varieties available:
➡ Heavenly Pesto (Vegetarian) — Israeli couscous, Spring mix, Mozzarella, Tomatoes, Red drop peppers, Basil pesto
➡ Simply Greek (Vegetarian) — Farro, Arugula, Tomatoes, Feta, Red onion, Cucumber, Kalamata olives, oregano vinaigrette
➡ Smoked Salmon — Israeli couscous, Arugula, Smoked salmon, Cucumber, Feta, Radish, Fennel, Scallions, Aji-lemon vinaigrette
➡ California Cobb (Gluten-free) — Chicken, Spring mix, Corn, Cheddar, Tomatoes, Bacon, Red onion, Avocado-ranch dressing.
Upon invitation, I sampled one of each of these meals and they are simply delicious. The portion size is quite generous and each jar is enough food for two people or two meals — depending on how much you like to eat. Or a perfect entree size for dinner. All of the ingredients were crisp and fresh and can last for up five days in the fridge. This is set-it-and-forget-it eating which is perfect for busy professionals who are working and taking care of their family at home. You just shake the jar, pour onto a plate or into a bowl, and voila! It could be any more convenient!
Each meal package can be ordered one-time or as a weekly subscription. A one-time purchase of a 5-pack will cost $48 and an 8-pack will cost $68. If you choose a weekly subscription, you’ll save a few bucks. A weekly subscription of a 5-pack will cost $42 and an 8-pack will cost $60. If you were eating out for lunch often, trust me, you’re probably going to save money. Plus you’ll have the added bonus of feeling good about eating healthier and supporting a local small, Philadelphia-based business!
As a promotion to my readers, they are offering 15% off your first order through the end of May. Use promo code “PHILLYGRUB” to snag that discount. I want you to try these meals for yourself and tell me what you think. I guarantee you will love them!
