Home Chef, a meal solutions brand and Skinnytaste, the popular recipe and cookbook franchise founded by chef Gina Homolka, teamed up to bring customers 12 simple, delicious and well-balanced meals to kick off the new year with a fresh start. For a limited time only, Home Chef will feature three rotating Skinnytaste recipes each week and two in-store Classic Meal Kits will be available at the Kroger family of stores nationwide.

The 12 recipes were co-created for different dietary preferences and needs such as sodium sensible, calorie conscious and vegetarian.  

Over the next four weeks, customers can try eight new Skinnytaste recipes, including Latin-Style Steak with Onions and Tomatoes, Butternut Squash and Black Bean Enchiladas, Sesame Tofu Rice Bowls and Oven-Ready Crispy Chicken Piccata. Four returning fan-favorite meals, such as Basil-Parmesan Crusted Salmon and Shrimp Scampi with Broccoli Orzo, will be featured on the Skinnytaste menu as well.

"I heard the overwhelming feedback from my community and fans about my collaboration with Home Chef last year, and I'm excited to introduce my newest recipe lineup which includes more meal options each week," said Gina Homolka, author and recipe developer at Skinnytaste. "Featuring 12 carefully crafted recipes, I hope our co-created meals inspire people to prepare fresh, delicious and simple meals their whole family will love. Plus, new for this launch, people can order multiple Skinnytaste meals from Home Chef's online menu each week and find our meal kits in local Kroger grocery stores, making simple, well-balanced and delicious meals even more accessible."

About Skinnytaste
Skinnytaste began in 2008 when Gina Homolka, author and recipe developer, wanted to slim down some of her favorite recipes. The result was "skinny" and "tasty" creations made with real food. Gina's meals quickly turned into a blog reaching over 17 million people and then a healthy food empire with numerous best-selling cookbooks, and becoming both a Iacp Award Finalist and James Beard Award Finalist.
