Want to take the guesswork out of dinner every night? With an Aussie Farmers Direct Weight Watchers Freshbox, it’s never been easier to make healthy, wholesome meal choices. And to top it all off, it’s delivered fresh to your door. I’m revealing all the details of what happened in my kitchen with a WW freshbox, plus I show you how to cook a dinner dish so quick and delicious, the kids will hardly believe it’s out-of-this-world healthy!
Aussie Farmers Direct together with Weight Watchers have created the ultimate freshbox – using Smartpoints friendly recipes, which are both delicious and easy to make. With meals from just $6.95 per plate, the WW freshbox will help you fuel your family’s bodies the freshest way possible. Just pick which WW freshbox best suits your family and choose which delivery day is most convenient for you. You’ll see which pantry items you’ll need at the point of ordering (flours, oils, etc) so you can check that you have those items too. It’s that easy.
The very first thing I noticed about the speedy delivery of my WW freshbox was the care taken in packaging. Upon opening, it was clear the contents had been packed far more carefully than I’ve experienced at some supermarkets. Fresh fruit and refrigerated meats and cheeses were divided and the cold items were contained within a sealed plastic bag, each layered with reusable ice packs.
As if I wasn’t already impressed enough, the vegetables are of the quality I’d expect from a green grocer – Australian grown, picked farm fresh and smelling divine. At this point I was already feeling quite smug about time saved worrying about dinners while simultaneously supporting Aussie farmers.
My Aussie Farmers Direct WW freshbox contained all the ingredients and recipe cards for five rather lush meals. My husband was home for lunch so I cooked the two of us Mee Goreng using the included recipe card. I know I’ll be cooking this again, it’s light, packed with fresh flavours and makes a fair bit for two serves – plus the kids were miffed they missed out.
To make the Mee Goreng for yourselves, here’s the recipe. The recipe serves two as is, but you can double or even triple it to feed your family, depending on numbers.
100 dried egg noodles
2 tsp vegetable oil
250g chicken thigh fillets, fat trimmed and cut into 2cm pieces
1½ spring onions, thinly sliced, plus extra for garnish
1 garlic clove, crushed
½ tsp finely grated fresh ginger
100g red cabbage, finely shredded
½ large carrot, grated
½ red capsicum, thinly sliced
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp lime juice
½ lime, cut into wedges to serve
- First up, have everything you need sliced and diced, ready to go and within arm’s reach. Stir frying is quick sticks cooking – there’s no time for hunting around the back of the pantry for soy sauce mid recipe!
- Cook noodles in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet instructions or until just tender. Drain.
- Meanwhile, heat a wok over medium – high heat. Add half the oil and heat for 30 seconds. In two batches, add the chicken and stir fry for three to four minutes or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a bowl.
- Reheat wok over medium heat. Add remaining oil and heat for 30 seconds. Add the spring onion, garlic and ginger and stir fry for one minute. Add the cabbage, carrot and capsicum and stir fry for three to four minutes or until vegetables are just tender.
- Add the noodles, chicken, soy sauce and lime juice to the wok and stir fry for one to two minutes or until heated through.
- Divide into two bowls, sprinkle extra spring onion on top and serve with lime wedges. Time to tuck in to a colourful meal that’s both delicious and healthy.
