Meal delivery services are lifesavers on busy weeknights. Not only do they provide the exact amount of ingredients necessary to whip up a home-cooked meal (without leaving any waste behind) — during the time of COVID-19, they offer a safe way to shop for food from home. Plus, they take the guessing out of the what’s-for-dinner-tonight-game. Nowadays, there are lots of meal delivery services for every diet available, from paleo to plant-based. Here are our suggestions for the ones to try based on your dietary needs.
First up is Blue Apron, the original meal delivery service. If you’re sticking with a Mediterranean diet, you’ll love Blue Apron’s offerings. Their dishes feature protein-packed meals with healthy grains, fruits and veggies.
Another meal delivery service option is Sun Basket, which is the way to go if you’re following a paleo or pescatarian diet. They provide fresh, organic ingredients for paleo-friendly meals. Menu examples include Greek beef skewers with arugula pear salad and hazelnuts and spicy chipotle turkey and sweet potato chili with cabbage slaw. Sun Basket is also great for pescatarians, with meals like roasted salmon with pearl couscous and date-apple salad.
Purple Carrot is a plant-based delivery service that offers unique and tasty meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus snacks. Their dishes feature global flavors, so you’ll never have to worry about getting bored. Menu items include dishes like Korean tofu tacos and vegan Caesar salad. Choose from a two-serving or four-serving plan.
Next on our list is Hello Fresh, an ideal meal plan option for vegetarians. However, they have options for meat eaters and low-calorie diets, too. Vegetarian offerings include delicious dinners like black bean and poblano quesadillas and mushroom ravioli with kale and walnuts.
Last on our list of meal delivery services for every diet is Green Chef, the go-to option for keto dieters. With organic meals that have just 8-20 net carbs per serving, you’ll be full and satisfied without having to sacrifice your diet. Meal examples include roasted red curry chicken and Baja shrimp bowls. Yum!
