14 Healthy Meal Delivery Services for Busy People Who Want to Eat Well
The internet is inundated with dozens of meal-delivery services, from the healthy to the indulgent, the vegan to the keto, the novice-friendly to the chef-driven. We covered all the bases and found the web's best options for healthy meal and snack delivery companies so you can find what works best for your diet. Click on for a service that lets you order whatever nutritious food you like to your front door, be it a juice cleanse, a lot of low-carb snacks, a ready-to-eat salmon fillet, or a kit for Thai curry.
Daily Harvest ($7/meal): This soup, smoothie, and anything-you-can-eat-in-a-bowl service delivers concoctions you'd never think to make yourself, including carrot cake smoothies and mulberry-dragon fruit overnight oats. All ingredients come frozen and pre-chopped in a single container, so you need only blend or heat for a ready-to-eat meal.
Green Chef ($11/meal): These organic meals fit any diet from vegetarian to keto, and all of its pre-measured, pre-chopped ingredients come in eco-friendly packaging. Have your friends over for the roasted honey-mustard salmon with kale salad and Parmesan potato cakes. They'll think you're Wonder Woman.
Kettlebell Kitchen ($9/meal): Kettlebell's premade meals, like bison beef burgers and basil-peach grilled chicken, are designed to help you reach your fitness goals, whether you want to shed fat, build muscle, or fuel up for intense workouts. Meals can be ordered a la carte or as part of a plan, and they check out for vegetarian, keto, paleo, and Whole30 diets.
Terra's Kitchen (from $72/week): We'd show a photo of a Terra's meal if we weren't nerding out so hard over their drawer-style packaging, which is upcycled up to 100 times. The service offers ready-to-eat salads, snacks, and smoothies, as well as meal kits for any size household and dietary need. The colorful, always healthy ingredients come pre-chopped, so you can get a meal on the table in 15 to 30 minutes.
PeachDish ($13/serving): If you want to lower your butter intake but can't give up the flavors of the South, try PeachDish, which serves lightened-up takes on comforting classics like chicken and dumplings and shrimp and grits (and a quinoa bowl here and there for good measure). In addition to the rotating weekly menus, there's an online market for grocery staples and desserts — and everything is farm-to-door.
Sakara (from $80/plan): Celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow and Chrissy Teigen have turned to Sakara for plant-based, detox-friendly meal plans. Choose a complete meal-kit delivery service or a detox plan, which we've tried and is #worthit.
Pete's Paleo (from $123/plan): If you want to follow a paleo diet without searching for recipes and cooking every night, you can order a week of Pete's Paleo frozen meals, like Italian pork butt with mushroom and leek medley and mashed yams, to your front door.
Keto Delivered ($40/box): If you tend to lose control in the snack aisle, opt for Keto Delivered, which sends you a batch of enticing, low-carb snacks and ingredients to help you stick to your keto diet.
Veestro (from $7/meal): Order a la carte meals, juice cleanses, or goal-oriented meal packs, such as a 30-day wedding prep box or an athlete-friendly protein box. These ready-to-heat meals don't require a subscription, either.
Freshly (from $50/week): Freshly delivers healthier takes on traditional meat-and-potatoes-style meals, like buffalo chicken with loaded cauliflower and chicken parm with side of broccoli instead of spaghetti. You'll also find veggie options and meals inspired by other countries. Conveniently, the food is sent fresh, not frozen, so it takes under three minutes to reheat.
Purple Carrot (from $8/meal): Purple Carrot is for the plant-based eater in a tofu rut. Experiment in the kitchen with kits for miso-ginger polenta with stir-fried veggies or peanut tempeh with mango and green fried rice. Choose from quick-and-easy, high-protein, and chef's choice plans.
Thistle (from $12/meal): Thistle is health city, serving more than 40 superfoods, housemade nut milks and cheeses, and at least five fruits or veggies per meal. Plant-based and dairy- and gluten-free meals, including beet poke bowls and Mediterranean tofu scrambles, are ready to eat when they arrive.
Sun Basket (from $11/meal): Sun Basket's 30-minute meals can satisfy paleo, vegan, and other lean diets with organic produce, hormone-free meat, and wild-caught seafood. Each week's menu has 18 meal options, from squash fajitas to gingered turkey meatballs, so you'll constantly have fresh flavors to savor.
Splendid Spoon (from $65/week): Splendid Spoon's smoothies, soups, and stews could bounce you back from a week of carb-loading in Italy with light, liquid-diet wonder. Each plan (choose breakfast, lunch, soup cleanse, or a combination of each) comes with instructions on how and when to consume your items, a meditation guide for mindful eating, and plant-based dinner recipes.
