Meal Delivery Services

Meal Delivery Services

Covid times call for meal delivery services. Several benefits of using a meal delivery service are:
  1. It eliminates a good portion of your grocery shopping allowing for more leisure time.
  2. It allows for a safe and contactless means to get high quality produce and ingredients.
  3. The meals don’t take long to make and the recipes are easy to follow.

There numerous companies that offer meal delivery service. However, finding the one that’s best for you can be challenging especially if you or a loved one has any dietary restrictions or food allergies. Let’s dive into some of the more popular meal delivery services. I’ve personally tried a couple. If you’ve tried any of the below, we’d love to hear your feedback in a comment! 

 

Sun Basket:

Sun Basket offers organic and fresh produce. Plus, all recipes are developed by a chef and are nutritionist approved. Meal options can include paleo, gluten-free, vegetarian, diabetes friendly, quick & easy, lean & clean, carb-conscious, pescatarian, and Mediterranean. You can also select breakfast, lunch, dinner, and/or snack options as well. Doesn’t deliver to some states and there’s sometimes an added delivery cost.

*I tried Sun Basket’s Carb-Conscious Meal Plan, and I thought all of the meals were fantastic. The Beef lettuce wraps were so delicious! In my opinion, Sun Basket has the most variety to choose from if you have any dietary restrictions.

 

Hello Fresh:

Hello Fresh doesn’t have as many meal plans to choose from as the options include: Meat & Veggies, Veggie, Family Friendly, Or Low Calorie. This meal delivery service is more ideal for couples or families. Recipes take around 30 minutes to make and have 6 steps. Not designed for singles, and there isn’t any dessert options. 

 

Home Chef:
Choose from 14 different meal options every week with meals catering to variety of dietary needs and restrictions, such as as vegetarian, low-carb, and low-calorie. Meal suggestions are based on your preferences and the recipes are ideal for all cooking levels. However, there are limited options for vegans and doesn’t deliver everywhere within the US.

 

Freshly:
Is a fully gluten-free meal plan featuring seasonally fresh and nutrient packed food up to 3 times per day. You can choose 3, 6, 9, or 12 meals per week, which are delivered fresh and never frozen to your door. All recipes are free of artificial preservatives and hydrogenated oils. All food is prepared in a peanut-free and gluten-free environment. Freshly does not cater to other specialty diets outside of gluten-free and weight loss. Does not deliver to all 50 states or provide dessert or snack options.

 

Blue Apron: 

The OG Meal delivery service. Blue Apron only lets you choose between For Two Or The Family Plan and offers free shipping. Recipes are easy to follow. Some recipes require some of the same ingredients, so you have to be careful not to use everything they send when you cook your first meal. There isn’t much variety in terms of meals to choose from or for any dietary restrictions.

**I tried Blue Apron and thought the food was really tasty, but some of the recipes were a bit random and weren’t dishes I would typically eat to be honest.
