Cooking often leads to too much time stuck in the kitchen, with entire days spent waiting for soups to simmer, ribs to marinate, and apples to wiggle themselves out of pigs' mouths. Avoid taxing culinary observation with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a Summer BBQ pack or a Smart 'n' Lean pack from Smart Minute Meals (a $159 value). Today's Groupon includes the cost of shipping (a $19.99 value).
Smart Minute Meals wraps and delivers wholesome preportioned meals that arrive frozen on doorsteps, ready to be quickly heated and served. Diners can munch merrily, knowing that all of Smart Minute Meals' mouthwatering creations are free of high-fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, MSG, and artificial fillers. The Summer BBQ pack houses two-cheese egg whites and tasty beef brisket for separate meals or combined chirp 'n' turf. The Smart 'n' Lean pack clusters thai basil tilapia, hickory-smoked almonds, and caribbean-blend vegetables. Each pack contains 24 items total, including a culinary cast of three breakfasts, two replenish shakes, snacks, five proteins, vegetables, and starches, several of which boast all-natural or gluten-free status, to mix and match for lunch or dinner. Heat and serve meals in less than three minutes, a faster process than starting a compliment-powered car.
Each of the Smart Minute Meals is delivered in a cold-ship container on dry ice. Meals can be stored in the freezer for up to one year, allowing them to be enjoyed during Thanksgiving dinner or dropped into trick-or-treaters' pillowcases on Halloween.
