During the first few years, when it was Meal Packs, I really enjoyed the app and found it useful. Overtime, the recipes have gotten more complicated and require more equipment and ingredients than what I am able to afford or find in my area. I'm in the rural Midwest USA. The conversions have been difficult and lately I have too many leftovers and the food is claggy and heavy. Not every dish needs a sauce or a starch and could do with fresher/lighter options. I love Sorted though.

Great tool overall for trying new recipes, limiting food waste, and improving confidence with cooking. The portion sizes are often a bit off. Sometimes we end up with tons of leftovers and other times we just have enough for one meal. They are constantly adding new recipes, so I'm hoping to see them eventually work with a dietician to get some better-balanced meals available. The meat-focused recipes are often missing veggies, and the vegetarian recipes are usually too low in protein.

I've been cooking 3 meals every week for the last month. I'm not sure if it's the audio guide or that the shopping list is made up, or the meal packs designed to minimize waste, but this app surprised me by making me consistently cook my meals. It really has been a game changer for me. My only quips are that the portions seem to be larger than for 2 people ( I just cook for myself) and some of the recipes love using a LOT of oil. Recipes have been hit or miss, but nothing's been bad so far.
