Best Meal Delivery Services to Make Life Easier

Jan 06, 2021 ByLaura Lee

For many of us, this past year has included a lot of quality time in the kitchen. With seemingly all the time in the world, you might have tried every recipe in your favorite recipe book. Your New Year’s resolution might be to finally cook a little bit less. The best meal delivery services can help you with that! No matter what your dietary preferences, there is a crazy amount of meal kits out there just for you. Some meal delivery services, like Sun Basket, focus on providing quality, farm-fresh ingredients for people who want wholesome food without having to step foot in a grocery store. Other services, like Home Chef or Gobble, want to simplify dinnertime for busy families by serving kid-friendly, delicious meals. And then you’ll find meal kits boasting flavors from around the world, or oven-ready TV-dinners that just require a few minutes of reheating.

Blue Apron

Blue Apron is one of the O.G. healthy meal kit companies. Every ingredient is measured, portioned, and packaged, the step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, and it has a mix of meat, fish, Beyond Meat, Weight Watchers–approved, and diabetes-friendly recipes. Bonus: You can add a wine pairing to your order! Two-person plans, with three fresh meals per week, start at $60.

Sun Basket

This one is for all the clean eating vegans, vegetarians, and pescatarians out there!  Also suitable for anyone managing diabetes or eating paleo or gluten-free, Sun Basket is a sold option. The food delivery service offers organic produce and antibiotic- and hormone-free meats and seafood, and everything arrives at your door in recyclable, enviro-friendly packaging (ice packs included). The best part? The healthy meals aren’t boring, with recipes like Mediterranean quinoa salad and turkey tacos with roasted red pepper salsa. It costs $71.94 for a classic box, which provides three meals for two people.
