There are many good options for meal delivery services in Anaheim, so I put together a few tips that might help you choose the best one for your diet and lifestyle.
Consider your dietary needs: All meal delivery services offer different menus and levels of recipe flexibility. Ensure that the meal service’s menu options accommodate your dietary and allergen requirements. All the services on this list include detailed recipe cards that list ingredients and common allergens in each fully prepped meal or meal kit. You can also consult FAQ or chat with customer service.
Consider your lifestyle: Meal prep times on this list range from 0 – 50 minutes and include fully prepped, heat-and-eat meals to culinary projects. Ensure the meals you want to order require the amount of prep time you have available and that you don’t receive meal kits when you’re expecting fully prepped meals.
Consider price: Each meal service offers different per-serving prices that usually decrease as you order more meals. And keep an eye on shipping prices! Shipping is free for some services, while others charge an arm and a leg.
Consider different services: If multiple services cater to your dietary needs, taste preferences, and lifestyle – give them all a try. You can use our discount codes to make trying out these services more affordable! Each meal delivery service on this list offers a little something different that might surprise you.
My top recommendation for the best meal delivery service in Anaheim is the Anaheim-based company Fresh N Lean. Fresh N Lean offers microwave-ready meals with super high-quality ingredients
such as non-GMO produce and humanely raised proteins. Plus, you can choose from eight different meal plans from Low-Carb Vegan to Protein+.
Additionally, all meals are gluten-free and have zero preservatives, sweeteners, or flavor enhancers added. They're delivered to your door fresh from their prep facility in Anaheim and are ready to be eaten after 2 – 3 minutes in the microwave.
You can't go wrong with such clean and convenient meals.
Fresh N Lean is my top choice due to it’s eight dietary plans. Close behind though is Freshly which offers a variety of cuisines with a wide range of dietary and allergen accommodations. Also worth noting is Purple Carrot which offers fully prepared vegan and plant-based meals with gluten-free, soy-free, and high-protein options.
If organic is your definition of health – Green Chef takes the (organic) cake. All ingredients are certified organic by the USDA and CCOF.
If plant-based is your definition of health, Purple Carrot deserves an honorable mention because most of its products are organic and non-GMO such as beans, nut milks, tofu, tempeh, vegan cheeses, and yogurts.
Fresh N Lean, Freshly, and Purple Carrot all offer plant-based, vegan options. Fresh N Lean offers Vegan and Low-Carb Vegan plans of microwave-ready ready meals, while Freshly offers a Plant-based plan of microwave-ready meals.
Purple Carrot’s menu is 100% plant-based vegan, gluten- and soy-free meal kits and fully prepared meals. You can also choose for your meals to be high-protein, meaning they’ll each have at least 20 g of protein per meal.
