Well i am curious how it turns out. If the recipes are good and all. We talked about getting it from ICA here the other day.

Well, raggmunk with pork goes for around 1.2€ per (large) serving including jam, and since the ingredients keep quite well you don't even need to make a large batch to make it worthwhile. If you cheat and use bacon instead of proper pork, you can shave maybe 20% off of that price. If you want to go *really* cheap, anything based on cabbage is the way to go. Of course, how much you can save depends on your taste in food, but I'm fairly sure it's possible to cook every single dish from that batch at less than half of those exorbitant ~6.25€ even without buying in bulk. EDIT: 1.2€ per raggmunk serving, not 12. Oops.

I’m sure it is possible to get everything much cheaper. In Germany there was a right wing politician who calculated that unemployed people could only need 3,76 € per day to feed themselves healthy and nutritious, and he perhaps is even right http://www.welt.de/politik/article1649762/Sarrazin-entwickelt-Hartz-IV-Speiseplan.html

But I mostly wanted to try it out, one can leave the program every week so I’ll check it out before I condemn it ;)

You also pay for the service, not having to make a good and healthy food plan for the week which is varied etc, and not having to shop the food at whatever place you go to usually, and so on... We used a few different of those delivery services for a few years as I told you the other day, we think it was really great, but we had different issues with each service we tried. No biggies really, but it's a really good time saver imho

Ok, I just made and ate the first dish which was salmon on minitortilia with self made mango chutney, white onion with koreander and self made guacamole. It tasted really really great. But was so much work, damn. I’m not sure I’ll be up for those complicated meals for longer periods of time.

Wai, hehe yeah, I’m a bit sceptic too, actually they say it is 4 lunches for two people and they deliver once a week. We’ll see how it works out.

Anton, 40 lunches would be 1,25 € per lunch, which sounds strikingly low. This might work within a family with many children but for a single household it sounds kind of impossible if you at least try to eat fresh stuff. But yes, it isn’t cheap, but going cheap was not the goal of this exercise.
