The Best Home Meal Delivery Kits!

Keeping all the balls in the air when it comes to organizing a household, work obligations, plus being an attentive son, daughter, wife, husband, sibling, neighbor and friend is sometimes a challenge. Add to that the necessity of coming up with tasty dinner options for meals every night – usually for multiple mouths – and meal delivery can seem like manna from heaven!

We surveyed the newest and most popular meal delivery kits to help simplify your life, and if you haven’t investigated this convenience – now’s the time to eyeball the options, many of which offer huge discounts on your first order!

MEAL DELIVERY KITS FOR FAMILIES

Sun Basket uses organic produce, clean ingredients and has vegan, Mediterranean, “lean and clean”, quick and easy options and you can mix and match to your heart’s content. The 30-minute recipes are designed for busy people and delivered right to your door. The cost is either $10.99 or $11.99 per serving (based on the Classic Menu program with 18 recipes to choose from per week, or the Family Menu, choosing from six recipes each week). Recipes include favorites like Simple Sausage Tacos, Tex-Mex Turkey Skillet with green chiles and avocado, and Mediterranean Lemon Chicken with artichoke ragout. The recipes are online so you can see the steps, as well as their prep time and calorie information.

Each week Home Chef sends fresh ingredients in the correct portions to create the meals inside the insulated, ice-packed delivery box. The cost is $9.95 per serving and each recipe details the prep/cook time, the difficulty level, the longevity once the kit is delivered, and food allergy warnings plus nutrition information before you order. You can even download the recipes from the site. Some of the recipes for the week we surveyed included Salmon with Green Goddess Sauce, Thai Steak with Peanut Noodles and Parmesan-Crusted Pork Piccata Medallions. Yum.

MEAL KITS FOR EVERYONE

The Good Kitchen sends fresh, fully-prepared meals “from farm to table in three minutes.” Using grass-fed and pastured proteins, organic produce and heirloom grains, you can select a meal plan or customize your own from a seasonal rotating menu. A few of the meals we scanned included Low Country Shrimp Boil, BBQ Rubbed House Wings and Chef Thomas’ Salmon Patties. The blog posts on The Good Kitchen include recipes from chefs, i.e., “How to Make a Paleo Shepherd’s Pie” to cooking and meal prep tips like “5 Everyday Kitchen Essentials.” Plan prices range from $98 per week for seven single meals up to the All-In plan for $231 per week – 21 meals delivered to your door.

GLUTEN-FREE MEAL KITS

All the meals on the Freshly menu are 100 percent gluten-free and prepared by the Freshly chefs then sent to your door with the promise that dinner can be on the table in a few minutes! With 30 meals to choose from each week, there’s not much we didn’t want to order from this site. The meals are protein-packed and Paleo-inspired (whole unprocessed foods, leafy greens, fresh pesticide-free vegetables, nuts, fruits on occasion, grass-fed meat, pastured free-range poultry and wild-caught fish), and the subscriptions are flexible with dedicated meals for kids.

Not only does Bistro MD offer gluten-free menus, you can order breakfast, lunch and dinner meals for every day of the week, the work week, or custom-design your meals. The Bistro MD program includes meals that are designed for weight loss  and can be tailored for men and women. They also offer free consultations with registered dieticians and a free diet analysis based on your height, current weight and desired weight. With more than 100 doctor-designed and chef-prepared entrees, the program is designed for healthy weight loss and has been featured on The Biggest Loser and The Doctors.
