This Dinner Hack Has Millennials Ditching Delivery

Can Millennials change the food industry? If you look at the evidence, from calorie counts posted at fast food joints to convenience stores selling fresh produce, it appears they already have. Millennials have shown that they value delicious, balanced meals, whether they’re at home or on the go. And they value the skill, satisfaction, and Instagram-rights that come with creating a dinner at home.

But for a generation with schedules more packed than ever, the question is: who can find the time to research recipes, gather ingredients at the grocery store, and try complicated recipes at the end of a busy day?

The life-hack solution is a service called Plated, a company that delivers fresh ingredients and step-by-step recipes directly to your door each week.

This dinner-kit service offers boxes filled with chef-designed meals made up of pre-portioned ingredients that take all the guesswork out of making a restaurant-quality meal. Within 30 minutes, you’ll have delicious, Instagram-ready plates that leave you full and happy (not to mention thrilled with your cooking mastery).

Here’s a summary of how it works:

1. Visit and order new meals each week.
2. Receive your box, which includes each pre-apportioned ingredient.
3. Follow the simple-to-use recipe card, prepare your meal, and enjoy.

Picky eaters take note: The meats are artisanal and raised without antibiotics or added hormones, the seafood is sustainably sourced, the produce seasonal and fresh. And for those who love variety, there’s a range of cuisines from Thai to Greek to Mexican.

Each week, Plated will select recipes and ingredients based on your preferences, or let you build your own menu. No racing around, no scrounging for dinner, no hassle.
