If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s to appreciate the value of food. Specifically food delivered directly to our doors, therefore sparing us the trouble of donning a mask and venturing out. That’s where this list of best meal kit delivery services comes into play.
As much as we all love hamburgers and subs, we can’t live on fast food alone. Thankfully, a thriving new meal kit delivery sector has emerged. These handy boxes come complete with all the ingredients you need to make a nutritious, filling meal for the family.
So let’s take a look at the 5 best meal kit delivery services to try in 2020. Beats the heck out of going to the grocery store!
If you’re looking to begin your foray into meal kits, EveryPlate is an excellent place to start. The emphasis here is on simplicity and affordability. An EveryPlate membership is a great gift for a college student unaccustomed to cooking for her/himself. It’s also ideal for busy families who don’t have time for fancy cooking.
The only downside is that EveryPlate is not designed to cater to picky eaters or those with tons of dietary restrictions.
If you are a picky eater, HelloFresh may be more your speed. They allow you to customize your boxes based on the dietary needs (or desires) of your household. The meals are also simple and affordable. Nothing will take more than half an hour to prepare, and there’s minimal wastage.
As the name suggests, this is probably your best bet if you’re looking for a meal kit that caters to your diet. The ingredients are all premium and organic, catered by very skilled chefs. But don’t let that scare you: it won’t be hard to make these meals.
Green Chef can provide tailored boxes for those on paleo, keto, or vegetarian diets. You won’t be disappointed.
If you’re not restrained by dietary concerns and are more interested in impressive artisanal meals, this is the meal kit for you. Home Chef has tons of options, updating them every month based on the feedback of customers. It’s also very easy to make substitutions or request larger portions -- though this will, of course, cost more.
If you fancy yourself an amateur chef, this service will definitely be in your wheelhouse.
Farm Fresh To You
The title really says it all. If you’re the kind of person who loves hitting up the farmer’s market, this is the meal kit for you. You’re not getting any meat this way, though. You can customize to opt out of fruits and veggies you don’t like. You can also opt into other farm products like eggs and honey if you like.
The produce is fresh, but a little on the pricey side. It’s not really an option if you’re hoping to feed your whole family, but excellent for the couple who love to eat organic.
