Happy 2017!! 2016 was a great year for myself and my family. This year I do want to make a resolution, to eat healthier. I now work part time in the afternoons/evenings, so trying to come up with healthy meals at lunch time and dinner time is becoming quite the task. For lunch sometimes I grab fast food for a quick option which isn’t healthy, or sometimes I skip and eat a snack at work which is not healthy either. I get home after 6pm and the last thing I want to worry about is what meal I will be cooking. I would rather spend quality time with my family. Sometimes I wish their was an easier way.
Well, I found one! I was contacted recently by Blue Sage Cuisine, a local catering company out of Jacksonville, FL. They provide locally sourced, scratch/made organic/natural cuisine, including Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free options.They offer weekly meal prep and delivery. After speaking to the very sweet owner, Jasmine Wooden, I was very intrigued and definitely wanted to give this a try.
Here is some information about Blue Sage Cuisine:

Then, click on “Info Sheet-Meal Delivery”. Fill that form out and Blue Sage Cuisine will be in touch with instructions on how to order.
When you are ready to order, you will see the weekly menus being offered for the following week. They are currently delivering to a select location in each of the following areas: Mandarin, Nocatee, Baymeadows/9A, Stands/UF, and San Marco. In order to pick up your meals on a Monday, your order must be placed by the following Saturday. Jasmine will explain all of that information in her email to you.
You can choose from a weekly lunch option which includes 5 different meals. You can purchase the “regular” lunch serving size, which is what I reviewed, or they have a larger portion option for an additional cost. All of the meals are packaged in BPA free containers and they are re-heatable making it very easy! The meals I received in the regular portion lunch option are below:
Lemon Chicken Pasta
Chicken Chili Verde
Shrimp and Avocado Salad
Turkey Burger and Sweet Potato Fries
Each meal comes with heating instructions and calorie count. These meals make it super easy for my busy mornings/afternoons before I head out to work. They are also great for a quick and easy dinner just for myself. All of the ingredients are very fresh and everything was so tasty. Each meal kept me full until dinner time. My husband tried the Mediterranean plate and he is pretty hooked!
I was able to choose a Family Meal as well. Each meal feeds a family of four. They all looked so good, it was hard to choose. Each comes with a salad or side dish.
I chose the Lasagna Bolognese which comes with a salad.
The family meal was more than enough food for my family of 4. We had plenty of leftovers for the next day! The food was so good and I love that it is a much healthier version.
In conclusion…. the website was very user friendly, ordering process using PayPal went smoothly, and the meals are affordable, healthy and delicious. If you are looking to start eating healthier or are in a time crunch to prepare meals, then definitely give Blue Sage Cuisine a try!!
