What a Crock Meals to Go is the next big meal kit delivery service. Eliminating processed foods, this company is starting to change the meal delivery landscape.

Chemically processed foods are made solely from refined ingredients and artificial substances. Our crock pot creations are made fresh and then frozen immediately–serving a healthy alternative.”

— Brieanna West, Founder

BROOKHAVEN, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — We live in a world of innovation. As a society, we are constantly looking for ways to simplify tasks and save time. This holds true to food preparation and has become apparent with the rise of meal prep delivery options.

About a decade ago, a phenomenon started occurring in American grocery stores. Someone had the genius idea of selling meal kits that contained all of the ingredients you would need to feed a family of 2 or 4 instead of needing to purchase and measure all of the ingredients separately. Additionally, some retailers had the idea of pre-slicing or cooking the ingredients to help save preparation time along with including recipe cards of instructions. This meal option was met with overwhelming success, and it was only a matter of time before someone turned this small, grocery shopping idea into its own business.

If by chance, the majority of the components are included and pre-measured, what else could these retailers do to make the meal prep process easier? Get the meals sent to your home.

Meal Kit Delivery: A New Culinary Industry

From New York City to the deep Southern states, many meal kit companies have emerged that all claim they’re the best. Whether it’s Martha Stewart or Amazon Fresh, they all can’t be the best. An industry has been created, threatening grocery stores and the traditional way of preparing dinner as we know it. There are now more than 100 meal delivery plans available in some form or another, from those who specialize in microwavable meals and juice cleanses to those who sell healthy crockpot meals.

A meal kit delivery subscription is a complicated purchase. The traditional services mail you three nights’ worth of portioned, fresh ingredients and the corresponding recipes to prepare them. Is there a perfect meal kit delivery service?

According to experts, the industry is predicted of being a multi-billion-dollar market by 2022, and about 19% of adults claim that they have tried a meal kit service at least once. Which is the best? There are many factors that go into determining that.

How What a Crock Compares

When trying to decide which meal kit delivery service option is best, there are a few factors to weigh. What are the cheapest options? Which choices will provide you with the best home-cooked meals? We’ve highlighted five of the most popular meal kit delivery services in the country to see how What a Crock compares:

1. Plated
According to Money, Plated is the “best meal kit service on the market.” Plated offers creative recipes that you probably wouldn’t usually prepare on your own. These recipe options require a bit of skill in the kitchen and don’t always come with all of the ingredients you need to make the dish, such as oil or eggs.

How What a Crock Compares:
What a Crock has less prep time but doesn’t necessarily have dishes that are as “creative” or “adventurous” as the ones through Plated. The aspects that What a Crock does have instead is a larger variety of meals, a lower minimum order requirement, and the option to ship to the entire country.

2. Blue Apron
When it comes to meal kits that are prepared with recipes, Blue Apron is one of the best. It is not necessary of being a culinary whiz to take on a seared steak or saffron pasta dish. However, Blue Apron’s recipe database is quite limited. Each week you are only given about 8-12 options to choose from and the prep/cooking time tends to be longer than other services; about 40-70 minutes on average. Blue Apron sets themselves apart from the rest with a wine delivery program which finds the best wines to pair with your meal plans, delivered right with your food.

How What a Crock Compares: What a Crock’s menu is much more in-depth. Meal prep time virtually disappears. What a Crock’s $40 minimum order requirement is also much lower than Blue Apron’s $60 requirement.

3. HelloFresh
HelloFresh has a similar model to Blue Apron but with quicker prep times; usually 20-30 minutes. HelloFresh breaks down their categories into “fit” meals, “quick” meals, and “variety.” The meals are also a bit simpler and less adventurous than the others we’ve highlighted. Depending on the culinary journey, it could either be good or bad based on what the consumer wants to experience.

How What a Crock Compares: HelloFresh was the most comparable to What a Crock in terms of variety, healthy options, low prep time, and low price.

4. Sun Basket
Sun Basket prides itself on offering health-conscious recipes that can accommodate almost any diet. Sun Basket’s main talking points are about its use of organic produce to have a fully organic meal with clean ingredients. You are also able to swap out ingredients for premium ones. For example, you can swap out a recipe that uses salmon with a better ingredient like halibut.

How What a Crock Compares: Sun Basket is incredibly environmentally conscious which makes it tough to beat in terms of sustainability. However, Sun Basket fails where their ingredients are usually pre-cut and pre-chopped, making it so the consumer has to use the ingredients very quickly before they go bad. With, What a Crock, your crock pot creations are saved in the freezer until you use them. What a Crock has a more expansive product offering, and the portions are cheaper.

5. Home Chef
Home Chef is similar to Blue Apron in the way that they offer a different set of available options each week. However, due to that, the offerings are limited (8-12 options). All options include easy-to-follow recipes. You can also choose a family plan based on how many servings you’ll require.

How What a Crock Compares: Home Chef offers fruit and smoothie options where What a Crock only has options that can be prepared in a crock pot. Home Chef also beats What a Crock’s shipping charges by a slim margin. However, What a Crock’s menu is more robust with lower prices per serving, on average.

Why What a Crock Meals are the best options

We believe that there are quite a few reasons why What a Crock meals are the best meal kit delivery service:


Everyone loves processed foods. A lot of us were raised on processed foods due to how cheap they are, how long their shelf life is, and how easy they are to keep around when you live a busy life and need a quick bite. One of the downsides to processed foods, though, is that they tend to be much less healthy than meals equipped with fresh ingredients. These processed foods are usually found with harmful ingredients such as preservatives, other artificial ingredients, high-fructose corn syrup, and sugar. These ingredients are one of the main causes of obesity in the United States and also contribute to other health-related issues. Our crockpot creations are all healthy meals. It’s also important to note that slow cookers use water and time to cook food, as opposed to added oils and fats found in other traditional, ready-made meals. What a Crock’s healthy crock pot meals cater to dietary restrictions such as vegetarian options and gluten-free ones as well.

More variety and creativity

The best meal kits seem to offer many options but not a lot of variety. With What a Crock Meals To Go, you have the option to choose from more than just dinner options. On top of dinners, we offer dips, soups, sides, and multiple dessert options to always have something new for your weekly recipes. We also offer bundles where we select a group of items that pair well together. For example, our Trip to Italy bundle features some Italian favorites such as Grandma’s Homemade Meatballs, Sausage Scallopini, Chicken Marsala, Tomato Basil Bisque, and more. We also have a No Gluten for Me bundle which brings some of our favorite, gluten-free crock pot meals together.

When you’re busy or crunched for time

Goodbye, unhealthy fast food and takeout. Hello, healthy crock pot meals delivered. No matter how busy your schedule may possibly be, prepared crock pot meals are the best solution for saving you time and money while also giving you optimal convenience when meal prepping. Your slow cooker is best for healthy, simple, and wholesome prepared meals that you and your family can enjoy at the end of any long day. Slow cooked crock pot creations are perfect for days that you’d rather spend by the pool or relaxing on a hammock instead of running around the kitchen. There are tons of summer-ready crockpot options available that would make any outdoor dinner or barbeques complete such as philly cheesesteak dip, old bay crab chowder, slow cooker steak sandwiches, and more.


Unlike the meals found in other dinner delivery services, What a Crock’s meals can all be frozen after they are prepared. This means that you can make a meal and freeze whatever you don’t use for a later time! This not only reduces food waste but also saves your budget. And what better way to save cooking time than by saving it twice?

Easy to make

What if we told you that it is possible to make an entire meal for your family in one single step without doing any prep work? It’s true! Most competitors require about 40-70 minutes of prep time. Cooking is so easy with a crock pot. Open up one of your What a Crock meals, pour it into the crock pot, cook, and serve. That’s it. You are able to set up your slow cooker in the morning before heading out and when you come home dinner is done and ready to serve. Also, most slow cooker recipes are so simple and require no culinary skills.

Clean up is a breeze

With other meal kit delivery services such as HelloFresh and Blue Apron, you’re given the task of preparing the meal yourself. This means cutting up all of the veggies, using multiple pots and pans to cook the dishes, and making a mess of your kitchen. With our prepared crock pot meals, there is no prep work associated with the meal that will make a mess of your kitchen. The only aspect that is in need of cleaning is your crock pot. You’re able to spend that time you would have wasted by preparing the meal on other parts of life such as hanging out with friends and family.

Food tastes better

Slowly cooking meat in a crockpot can effectively soften even the toughest of meats. In addition, you are able to purchase cuts of meat that are less expensive and would be tougher to chew if they were prepared on the stove or in the oven. There is a lower chance of your food being scorched or burnt due to the low temperatures that a crockpot uses to cook.

What a Crock: The Meal Delivery Service You Need

What a Crock began with a simple idea: produce healthy crockpot meals that help families save time and money. We have retail locations in Brookhaven, Garnet Valley, Ridley, Chestnut Hill and Quakertown. Make planning dinner easy without bundles. Choose from seafood, pork, chicken, sandwiches, soups, vegetables and more! Call us today at (484) 474-0451 or visit our website to place an order. Don’t forget we have gift cards!

Boxwood Kitchen to Open Location in Bend's Old Mill District

Popular online restaurant opens brick-and-mortar location in heart of Bend, Oregon dining scene

No location in Bend, Oregon offers views of the Deschutes, the iconic Central Oregon mountainscape and access to shopping, dining and entertainment like the Old Mill District does”

— Eric Rud, co-owner Boxwood Kitchen

BEND, OREGON, USA, July 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Boxwood Kitchen, which originally launched last year as a chef-inspired food delivery service, will open its first location in the Old Mill District in late fall. Known for inspired dishes that creatively incorporate flavors from the Far East to the Far West with locally sourced ingredients, Boxwood Kitchen’s new location will feature upscale yet casual lunch and supper club themed dinner with beer, wine and classic cocktails. Local co-owners Eric Rud and Riane Welch have been looking for a brick-and-mortar location for some time.

"Bend's rapid growth means that we've watched new developments popping up all over town, but none of these locations offer views of the Deschutes, the iconic Central Oregon mountainscape and access to shopping, dining and entertainment-all in the heart of Bend like the Old Mill District does," said Rud. "When the opportunity to open there came about, it was an exciting possibility for us, and when we met the Old Mill District team we knew that they were really invested in our business and that made the decision very easy for us."

Boxwood Kitchen was founded with the tagline of "Adventures, Good Food, Good People" and that mindset will continue as the owners move from a strictly online delivery model to add in their new permanent location. Rud draws on his passion for food and 20+ years of experience in the Bay Area and beyond to craft dishes with quality and value in mind. The final menu for the restaurant is still under development, but patrons can expect to see fare ranging all the way from a housemade porchetta sandwich with hand-cut pickled french fries to arctic char roulade with white bean puree and sauce almondine – and everything in between. They also plan to offer brunch on the weekends.

Rud and Welch will continue to operate their online food delivery services to the local community. Their new restaurant will be located at 330 SW Powerhouse Drive, Ste 150, Bend, OR 97702. More on their website: boxwoodkitchen.com

Frank Lennix Discusses the Easiest Health Codes Which Kitchens Are Often Cited For

Find out what which easy kitchen health codes are often the root of a citation

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — When people think of a kitchen, often, they think of eating. Many might remember their favorite food or a family meal. If the person knows or is a chef themselves, their mind might wander to cooking a meal.

What people probably don’t think about is health code citations. Unfortunately, Frank Lennix has cooked up some of the most common, easily rectifiable health citations found in a kitchen. Lennix warns that these might be disturbing, and they certainly are gross, but they’re a reality for many restaurant kitchens.

General Cleanliness

Anyone who has ever worked with food, in any capacity, knows that keeping a workstation clean is rule number one. In the kitchen, cleanliness is next to Godliness. Yet, many of the people citations for kitchen related health risks are due to uncleanliness. The inspectors who are giving these citations are going to restaurants. At restaurants, people pay for a meal that is supposed to be made by a professional. Although, it’s difficult to call anyone who can’t even clean up after themselves much of an adult, let alone professional.

Chemical Use

Yes. Chemicals. Cleaning products are among the largest offenders. It's usually safe to assume people aren’t cooking with chemicals. Although while cleaning, sometimes the right chemicals are not being used. For example, if the raw chicken is on a table, that table must be sanitized. Not cleaned, sanitized. Soap and water aren’t doing the trick. Kitchens are often called out for improper cleaning procedures.


This is gross, just on principle. Unfortunately, according to Lennix, it happens with a frequency that’s alarming. Cutting raw meat before cutting raw vegetables is cross-contamination. Cross-contamination also occurs when that chicken bacteria isn’t properly sanitized off the table. Cross contamination is usually due to negligence and laziness. It’s a simple, easy mistake, that could have dire consequences.


Another disgusting common kitchen citation is allowing food to reach an unsafe temperature. Food is stored in the refrigerator or freezer to keep bacteria from growing. The warmer something is, the more bacteria copulate. Mold is a visual fungus. Yet, most bacteria isn't so obvious. That’s why there are specific temperature restrictions on food. When storing, food must remain at a specifically low temperature. While heating, to cook the food enough, it must reach a certain internal temperature. This is basic food preparation, Yet, there are plenty of kitchens that do not abide by these rules. Again, their laziness could eventually cause someone to become sick, or even perish.

To close, Frank Lennix finds these easy health code violations appalling. While not every restaurant or kitchen is like this, there is a surprising number that are. Lennix urges people to remember this next time they sit down at a restaurant. Health departments are citing restaurants daily as a result.

Indonesia imports crab from Canada and USA

New Regulation will assist in the further development of the local fishing industry

JAKARTA, JAVA, INDONESIA, July 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With a population of 266 million Indonesia is the 4th largest country in the world. Its GDP of US$262b in the first quarter of 2018 makes Indonesia the largest economy in South East Asia. According to the World Bank Indonesia has significantly improved its ranking in the Ease of Doing Business (EODB) index for 2018 and has climbed 19 places to 72 from its previous rank of 91.

Indonesia is the largest country in the world in terms of tuna landings and it is in the world's top three producers of shrimp. However domestic production is currently insufficient to sustain its canneries. It is the 6th largest producer of canned tuna. As a result Indonesia continues to import tuna and many other kinds of fish especially crustaceans and imported 195,296 MT in 2017. In an effort to boost its local fishing industry Indonesia has been investing heavily and has taken stern action against Illegal Unreported and Unregulated fishing.

Against this background and in order to regulate the import of fish products used as industrial raw materials and to improve national competitiveness, the Ministry of Trade of the Republic of Indonesia has published a new Regulation No: 66 of 2018. The import of the regulated fish products is allowed only by importers with API-P (Producer) and API-U (General) licences issued by the Minister. An English translation of the Regulation may be downloaded from the URL shown below.

Applications to import fish products will be approved only if the importer holding an API-P licence can show evidence of cold storage, refrigerated transport and a recommendation from the Minister of Industry whereas holders of API-U licences must submit a distribution plan. The import approvals are valid for 1 year.

For goods that are already packaged a label in Bahasa Indonesia and English must show the commercial name of the goods as well as the scientific name, the net weight and name and address of importer and exporter. For fish that are not packaged the same information must be shown on a proforma invoice or packing list.

The exporter should also produce a Certificate of Fish Health or a Fish Processing Products Certificate signed by an authorised officer or competent authority in the country of origin.

All such imports of fish products are subject to technical verification or survey in the country of supply by a surveyor appointed by the Ministry of Trade. Information concerning the scope of the survey and appointed surveyors may be obtained by importers from KSO Sucofindo – Surveyor Indonesia.

Brady Bunte- “Tequila 101”, Silver, Reposado & Añejo.

Brady Bunte – Tequila 101

Brady Bunte – Agave- All tequilas are produced from a plant called “Agave”, preferably Blue Agave

With the peak of the tequila season approaching in the late summer months, here’s some helpful information about tequila. ”

— Brady Bunte

LAGUNA BEACH, CA, UNITED STATES, July 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Brady Bunte– “Tequila 101”, Silver, Reposado & Añejo.

With the peak of the tequila season approaching in the late summer months, here’s some helpful information about tequila. The tequila category has experienced astonishing growth with new and exciting offerings, and understanding the terminology is key, especially if you’re thinking about bringing tequila as a gift to your next party!

I hope my descriptions of Silver or Blanco, Reposado, Añejo & Añejo XXtra helps you decide which category of tequila you might be ordering at the bar or buying as a gift. Typically the longer the tequila is aged the more expensive it is.

Agave– All tequilas are produced from a plant called “Agave”, preferably Blue Agave. The blue agave plant grows into very large succulents that are very spiky. The Agave plant looks similar to an Aloe Vera plant but the Agave is a much stronger and larger in its overall size. The blue agave is typically grown at least 7-10 years before it reaches it ideal sugar levels to maximize its production for tequila.

Silver or “Blanco” Tequila is the most basic of the three. Silver Tequila is not aged so that it intentionally emits a stronger flavor and bouquet of the blue agave plant. The coloring of the tequila is clear and is usually 100% blue agave.

Reposado- translated to English means “restful” which implies that this type of tequila is aged or rested. Reposado Tequila is typically aged in white oak casks from 2 months to a year. Reposado must be aged for a minimum of 2 months to be called Reposado. The aging process is strictly monitored and enforced by the CRT. The aging process gives the tequila a mellow oak flavor combined with the flavor of the blue agave. The coloring of a Reposado is usually a slight golden color.

Añejo Tequila is typically aged in white oak barrels for over a year and aged in smaller batches. The lengthy aging process gives the tequila a heavier oak flavor and more complex qualities. Añejo must be aged for a minimum of 12 months to be called Añejo. The longer aging process creates an añejo tequila that’s a light brownish color.

Añejo XXtra Tequila is typically aged in white oak barrels for over 2 years and typically more than 5 years and is also aged in smaller batches. The extended aging process gives the tequila a heavier oak flavor and more complex qualities. longer aging process creates an añejo tequila that’s a darker brownish color. Some tequila makers are using Scotch Whiskey Barrels to enhance the flavors and smoothness of the tequila.

Brady Bunte is the founder of Tres Sietes Tequila which harvest its agave from the Los Altos region of Mexico also known as the “Jaliscan Highlands”. Brady Bunte has also created a unique website and has written several articles about agave for Agave Central: www.agavecentral.com
