SupperWorks has done the cost comparisons and when you compare what you would pay to purchase all the ingredients, the cost of using their service is not a hit to the budget as you may think it would be. Here are the reasons that using SupperWorks doesn’t inflate my grocery bill:
1. SupperWorks uses Triple AAA or higher grade meat. And the portions you get are huge value. For a pork tenderloin recipe, you get 2lbs of pork. Any chicken breast recipes includes chicken breasts that are 5 ounces. When they say that one meal serves 4-6 people, I always find they base that on large serving sizes so you absolutely get what you pay for, if not more. If you bought the same grade of meat, you would pay a higher price as they have access to volume discounts and a restaurant level supply chain. At this point, to get enough chicken to feed my family (with a bit left over for lunches) for dinner is costing me $18 or more! And I haven’t even bought the rest of the ingredients for any recipe yet!
2. Ingredients you don’t use often and fresh herbs. I love using fresh herbs but to buy them at the grocery store leaves you with large portions that I find hard to use up. Cilantro, fresh rosemary and fresh parsley are three herbs that I love but usually stick to dry versions (or omit them all together) as I don’t want to buy the large quantity and have it go to waste. To me that seems like a waste of money. At SupperWorks you use fresh herbs and the recipes are full of flavour and freshness. I also love using things like shallots and sherry in cooking but often don’t have those items on hand (and cleaning shallots is a pain!) but I love being able to incorporate those things in the meals I choose at SupperWorks.
3. Variety. I find trying new recipes can be expensive as you usually have to buy ingredients you don’t have on hand. SupperWorks adds variety to my dinner table and gets us all trying new recipes and proteins (Basa fish anyone?) with little effort. One of the reasons people stick to the same recipes is because they want to use up ingredients on hand but that leaves little flexibility and makes the cost of trying new recipes expensive.
If I bought the exact same ingredients for a SupperWorks recipe I might be able to save a bit of money (I do have honey and garlic, etc on hand) but if I add in the time for chopping and prepping and cleaning…there is no contest in my mind. The money I spend at SupperWorks is totally worth it to me and doesn’t bust my budget. SupperWorks is a smart solution for those who appreciate family time and good food while sticking to their budget. No more last minute poor quality meal choices that are expensive and unhealthy.
