Do Meal Kits Live Up To The Hype?​

Everything you need to know about Green Chef

Lately, more and more people have been signing up for meal kit delivery services. At a glance, meal kits seem like a big task and commitment, but it turns out, they're possibly the most convenient way to cook homemade dinner.

One of the main players in the meal kit field is Green Chef, the number one meal kit designed for eating well. It's perfect for people who want a healthier lifestyle but don't have the time to find, prep, and cook healthy recipes from scratch.

Curious to know more? Here are all your questions answered:

What exactly is a meal kit company?

When you subscribe to Green Chef, you'll choose your plan along with what recipes you want to receive from their weekly menu. With that, they'll send you out a box with all your ingredients, pre-portioned, right to your doorstep. No need to search the internet for new recipes, trek to the store, or measure ingredients. With a meal kit, dinner time is completely seamless. No more repeating the same recipes over and over again or ordering take out every week!

Why do people use meal kits?

For many people who live busy lifestyles, cooking the traditional way, which means finding recipes, sourcing ingredients, and measuring everything before you cook, is just not feasible. Some people rely on takeout a lot, but that ends up costing too much. With Green Chef, all the ingredients are sourced for you, and the prep is already done, so the meals only take about 30 minutes to throw together. Plus, you get to experience that sense of achievement and great taste you get from a home-cooked meal!

How much does it cost?

Meals start as low as $11.99 per serving with Green Chef (although there are many new customers discounts floating around out there--the best one we could find linked at the bottom!). Takeout with delivery fees averages around $15 personally, so it's crazy to me that I can get much higher-quality, healthy, and delicious meals for less.

What kind of plans and recipes do they have?

Green Chef has four plans available: Keto, Paleo, Plant-powered, and Balanced Living.

The Keto plan consists of recipes such as Roasted Red Curry Chicken, Cajun Pork Tenderloins, and Pork Bahn Mi Bowl. The Paleo Plan offers recipes such as Sesame-Ginger Beef Patties, Cherry BBQ Pork Meatloaves, and Honey Citrus Glazed Salmon. The Balanced Living menu consists of Homestyle Meatloaf & Gravy, Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl, and Sundried Tomato Flatbreads. The Plat-Powered menu consists of Thai Peanut Noodle Stir-Fry, Orange-Miso Tofu & Black Rice, and Creamy Corn & Potato Chowder. And that's just one taste bud of flavor--there's so much more with their menus rotating each week. Everything sounds delicious if you ask me!

Subscription? Am I locked in?

Nope, you can pause or cancel your subscription whenever you want! When you sign up, you get a login where you can choose your recipes, select your delivery day, and pause when necessary. It's completely flexible.

How come you're such a big fan?

Personally, I love Green Chef because of how convenient it is. Everything I need is delivered right to my doorstep every week, and I haven't had to stress about dinner once since signing up. Plus, as meal-kits go, Green Chef is super healthy and makes specialized dieting way easier. I never thought it would be this easy to cook healthy homemade dinners! Give it a shot, and you won't regret it.
