Blue Apron is a meal delivery service that provides something to please everyone. From comfort food to more adventurous options, most dishes can be prepared and cooked in around 30 minutes. This is perfect for people who don't have much time to plan, prepare, and cook meals regularly.
Michigan dieters can take advantage of the range of WW-recommended options. Choose from the recipes on the wellness plan, like the Moroccan-Style Chicken and Couscous, or the Seared Salmon and Walnut-Cilantro Sauce. These are nutritionist-approved recipes, so you get all the flavor and fewer calories.
The Blue Apron app offers easy-to-cook recipes and videos. If you're interested in learning about cooking with Blue Apron, you can read our full review for more information.
There’s a range of quick prep or heat-and-eat options. The quick prep options are great for novice chefs who want to start building skills in the kitchen. The ready-made meals are the perfect choice for busy weeknights, and make your mealtime completely stress-free.
Blue Apron is a great option for families, as it provides family-friendly meals. The Yellow Tomato and Basil Pesto Pizza or Balsamic Chicken and Green Beans are sure to please even the fussiest of eaters.
You can mix and match your preferences when you sign up. For example, you can choose Veggies as well as the Wellness options so you see those choices first. These can easily be changed in your account and you can still access the full menu.
If you're looking to splurge a bit, Blue Apron also offers premium options for an additional cost. This includes options for special occasions like dinner parties, date nights, and celebrations. You can even get a wine delivery service to go with your meal, which is perfect for a romantic night in.
In addition to main courses, Blue Apron also offers sides, desserts, and breakfasts to make meal planning even easier. That means fewer trips to the grocery and extra options if you want to take the hassle out of preparing additional meals in the day.
If you have allergies or are on a specialized diet, Blue Apron may not be the best option. Instead, I recommend Green Chef. If you’re looking to introduce more plant-based options in your diet, Blue Apron offers 3-4 additional vegetarian recipes each week on the Signature for 2 meal plan. Just look for the Make It Vegetarian tag when you select a meal image.
Blue Apron offers different pricing and serving options, ranging from 2 meals and 2 servings per week up to 4 meals of 4 servings per week. Prices start at $5.74 per serving. This is great for families who want to cut down on meal planning and get healthy, tasty meals delivered straight to their door.

Factor offers high-quality, zero-prep meals that are healthy and ready to heat. The best part is there's no need to spend lots of time in the kitchen, just simply heat them in the microwave or oven. Whether you're looking for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks, Factor has a wide variety of options to choose from that are sure to satisfy your taste buds.
Factor offers different plans to choose from when you sign up, including Protein Plus, Calorie Smart, and Keto plans, so you're sure to find the perfect plan that meets your needs. I like the look of the top-rated Garlic Pork Tenderloin and the Spicy Poblano Beef Bowl, which are both keto-friendly.
There’s a wide range of keto-friendly meals that are perfect for those who are following a low-carb or high-fat diet. You can also choose the low-carb option and add extra protein to expand your range of choices. This feature means you’ve always got an excellent selection of meals to keep you on track with your health and wellness goals.
Factor is a great service if you're vegetarian, vegan, or wanting to try more meat-free meals. There are 2-3 vegetarian options on the menu every week, and many are vegan too, so you can enjoy a delicious and nutritious meal that meets your dietary preferences. This is a great option for those who are looking to try new foods and explore new flavors.
Factor provides single-portion meals that are perfect for people cooking for 1 or those who want to control their portions. However, it may not be the best option for families or those with a larger appetite. Factor makes it easy to see the nutritional information of each meal, so you can be sure you're getting the right amount of nutrients to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
If you are an adventurous eater, you should know you can't customize Factor’s meals. So it’s worth bearing in mind that it may not be the best option for picky eaters. My colleague liked the transparency about ingredients and that “every dish is GMO-free and made with mostly organic produce”.
Factor offers a free consultation to help you with nutritional advice and guidance. This service can be particularly helpful if you’re looking to make lifestyle changes but don’t know where to start. Factor's expert team is ready to help you with your nutritional needs and answer any questions you may have. It’s great that you can have this consultation before signing up to check if it's the right choice for you.
It may not be the best option for those on a budget. This is because the meals can be expensive, and the minimum order is 6 meals per week. Prices start at $6.19 per serving, which may not be practical for larger families or if you’re trying to save money.

HelloFresh is a great option for families. It offers a range of cuisines and a variety of meal kits so you can get your kids involved in the kitchen and make cooking a fun family activity. They’ll be sure to love recipes like Sausage and Roasted Bell Pepper Pasta or Smothered Pepper Jack Burgers.
The recipe instructions are detailed and clear, so novice chefs are welcome. The company provides a complete list of everything you need for each recipe, making meal prep a breeze.
The Fit & Wholesome plan is perfect if you're looking for low-calorie or low-carb options. All the recipes are clearly tagged, making it easy for you to find the meals that are just right for you. You can choose from a variety of categories, such as Mediterranean, Seasonal Faves, and Hall of Fame recipes, which are the ones rated as most popular by customers.
HelloFresh also has a useful recipe archive called the Cookbook, which is perfect for those who want to expand their technical kitchen skills. If you prefer less hassle, you can choose Easy Cleanup or Easy Prep recipes to cut down on kitchen prep and spend more time with your family.
One of the best things is that it helps you get more adventurous in the kitchen. The company focuses on developing your cooking skills alongside your confidence, making it easier for you to try new things. The mouthwatering photography featured on their website will have you drooling over its recipes.
Some recipes allow you to customize your meal kits using the HelloCustom Feature. This makes it easy to upgrade, swap, or add extra protein to your meals. Also, you can add grocery items from the HelloFresh Market to your meal delivery. That means fewer trips to the grocery store as well as expanding your cooking repertoire with different meal types.
HelloFresh is committed to reducing its environmental impact. The recyclable packaging really impressed our reviewer.
You can order 2 recipes for 2 people up to a maximum of 6 recipes for 4 people per week. This makes it perfect for couples as well as families. Prices start at $3.32 per serving.

Green Chef provides meal kits with high-quality, organic, and sustainably sourced ingredients. It’s also the first meal kit service to be USDA-certified. This makes it a great service if you’re looking for top-quality ingredients.
It caters to a range of healthy diets including keto, vegan, and low carb. This is great for those with specific dietary needs. Check out our detailed review for more about dietary preferences and how many options there are on the menu each week.
In addition to meal kits, Green Chef also offers handy add-ons such as breakfast, snacks, salads, and protein options. You can order Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, Tilapia Fillets, and Pesto Caprese Sandwiches.
Green Chef's meals typically take around 30 minutes to cook. But it's worth noting that additional time may be needed for prep and clean up. It may not be the best option for busy people who are short on time. However, for those who want nutritionally balanced meals without the hassle of meal planning for specialized diets, Green Chef is an excellent choice.
The meal kits are designed to serve at least 2 people, which isn’t ideal for singles. However, you could try eating the extra serving for lunch the next day. Recipes like the Plant-Based Protein Tacos can easily be popped in the refrigerator to save for later.
The recipes are adventurous and combine unique ingredients to make delicious tasting meals. I like the look of the Pecan-Crusted Sockeye Salmon with Creamy Kale and the Sweet and Spicy Orange Cauliflower Bowls.
Green Chef is best for niche diets, so fussy eaters might not find anything to their taste. For more traditional American cuisine options, try a service like Blue Apron instead.
There is a minimum order of 3 meals for 2 people per week, and prices start at a relatively steep $5.99 per serving. But the quality of the ingredients and the restaurant-level meals you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home are well worth the cost.
Meal kits and ready-to-cook options

5 dietary options including vegetarian, pescatarian, and high protein
Home Chef offers a wide range of meal options, including meal kits, easy prep meal kits, bundles, and extras. One of the main advantages of Home Chef is its customizable meal kits.
You can use the "Customize It" tool to upgrade, swap or increase the protein option in lots of recipes, helping you tailor each dish to your preferences. For example, the Gordita-Style Shrimp Tacos recipe can be created with shrimp, beef, chicken, or steak strips.
Use the calorie-conscious filter if you’re on a diet or watching your calorie intake. The menu will show you only the meals that fit the calorie-conscious tag. And fewer calories don't mean any less flavor. You could try the Turkey Burrito Skillet or the Prosciutto Pasta with Brussels Sprouts and Parmesan.
Home Chef offers a small range of vegetarian options, with 6 meal kits available each week plus a variety of extras like breakfasts, snacks, and desserts. But if you’re on a strict diet or need vegan options, other meal delivery services like Green Chef may offer a better choice.
One of the standout features of Home Chef is the variety of ingredients available. It's an excellent choice for adventurous chefs who want a lot of variety in their dishes. Home Chef's recipes are easy to follow, and customers can feel like real chefs in their own homes, experimenting with different flavors and ingredients.
Home Chef also offers a Culinary Collection of recipes. These take longer than standard recipes but are great for special occasions when you have extra time on your hands. One recipe that takes longer looks very impressive is the Fried Mahi-Mahi and Pickle Remoulade, which takes around 50-60 minutes.
Don’t worry if you're short on time, opt for Fast & Fresh and Oven-Ready meals. They need no preparation at all and are perfect for a quick and delicious meal. Read our full review for more about meal options.
Home Chef's prices start at $7.99 per serving, with premium dishes costing more. To get started, customers can order 2 meals for 2 people per week.

Fresh and Easy is an ideal option for beginner chefs who want to make delicious meals in no time. Their meal kits are easy to prepare, with everything prepped and chopped, so you can cook them in just 15 minutes.
The meal delivery service offers Grill Ready, Oven Ready, and Fast & Fresh meal options that can be popped into the oven or microwave, making meal prep a breeze.
One great feature of Fresh and Easy is the prices start at the same as Home Chef, at $7.99 per serving. Additionally, if you're feeling adventurous and want more variety, you can access all of the recipes on Home Chef's menu as well.
Fresh and Easy is the best option for those with a busy lifestyle and a hectic schedule. It's also perfect for people who want a few more meal options but don't enjoy cooking. The meal delivery service offers fuss-free and convenient meal solutions, making it a great choice for people with limited time.
If you follow a plant-based diet, Fresh and Easy might not be the best choice for you. In this case, Purple Carrot is a better option as they offer a wide range of vegan recipes. However, Fresh and Easy do offer salads as an option, making meal planning even easier.
Another great feature of Fresh and Easy is their Customize It option, which allows you to swap your proteins and upgrade to organic meat for an additional cost. This gives you even more control over your meals. Find out more about Customize It in our detailed review.
The minimum order for Fresh and Easy is 2 recipes for 2 people per week, but you can order up to 6 recipes for 6 people. This makes it a perfect choice for families. Whether you're a beginner chef or a busy parent, Fresh and Easy has something for everyone.
Full meal plan plus snacks

6 dietary options including carb-conscious, diabetic-friendly, and vegetarian
BistroMD is an excellent meal delivery service for dieters, particularly those on specialized eating plans. Unlike other meal delivery services, BistroMD offers a unique range of plans such as heart-healthy, menopause, or gluten-free to cater to specific dietary needs.
All meals are fully prepared and ready to heat, which does limit customization. However, you can choose to avoid certain meals when you sign up, so if you aren't a fan of red meat, you can skip those meals.
A unique feature of BistroMD is its dedicated meal plan for diabetes-friendly meals. These meals are low in sodium, low in carbs, and high in fiber.
If you follow a vegan diet, BistroMD may not be the best option for you. In that case, you can try an alternative prepared vegan meal delivery service like Factor instead.
BistroMD's 6-week rolling menu offers over 150 options, so there's plenty of variety to choose from. Dishes are based on Mediterranean, Mexican, and American cuisines.
As a weight-loss-focused service, BistroMD provides nutritional support to help you on your weight-loss journey. Your program is created with the help of dietitians, so you know it's tailored to your specific needs.
BistroMD's packaging is recyclable and eco-friendly. This makes it a great service for those who are environmentally conscious as well as looking to lose weight. Read about my colleague’s experience ordering from BistroMD in their comprehensive review.
All meals arrive frozen, so you'll need to make sure you have plenty of freezer space. You can opt for the full program of breakfast, lunch, and dinner for 5 or 7 days, or choose the breakfast and lunch option for 5 or 7 days a week. Prices start at $8.24 per serving. You can also add snacks at an extra cost to help you eat healthily all day and stop you cheating on your diet.

Purple Carrot is the perfect meal delivery service for those who are on a plant-based diet or want to add more plant-based meals to their diet. With its focus on veggies, Purple Carrot provides nutritious, delicious, and veggie-packed meals that you’ll love.
Purple Carrot offers meal kits or prepared meals ready to heat and eat. I really like the flexibility it offers. You can choose from meal kits, prepared meals, or a mix of both. If you have a busy weeknight, you can have dinner on the table in less than 5 minutes.
While Purple Carrot isn’t completely organic, it does use non-GMO ingredients for most of its dishes. If organic is important to you, I recommend you try the meals at Green Chef.
Meal kits are easy to prepare and take an average of 30 minutes to cook. You'll have everything you need to create a healthy and satisfying dinner. In fact, our reviewer found that only basic cooking skills were needed to create delicious dishes that’ll impress even the pickiest eaters.
You can also add on a few groceries from the Plantry. If you fancy a treat, you can try the Chocolate Glazed Mini Donuts.
Purple Carrot has recently introduced a Less Prep plan, which focuses on meal kits that are quick to prepare. These meals are designed with speed in mind, making them ideal for busy weeknights. Veggies may arrive pre-chopped, sauces pre-made, and there are fewer pots and pans needed, making mealtime simple and hassle-free.
Purple Carrot focuses on high-quality ingredients with tofu, tempeh, and seitan used as protein sources. This is a welcome change when many other meal delivery services rely on imitation meat in their vegan meals. I like the look of the Gochujang Tofu Bowls with Brown Rice and Sesame Garlic Green Beans.
Allergens such as nuts and soy are clearly labeled on each recipe. This allows you to filter your choices at a glance, making it easier to find meals that suit your dietary needs.
One downside of Purple Carrot is that it uses a lot of plastic packaging. However, it does offer some ingenious ways to reuse or upcycle your packaging. For example, you can repurpose your plastic pots as a herb garden.
If you want delicious and nutritious dishes that focus on plant-based meals, Purple Carrot is an excellent choice. The minimum order is 2 servings of 3 meals per week for meal kits and 6 single servings of prepared meals per week. Prices start at $8.50 per serving.

Dinnerly is budget-friendly and ideal for families who have a lot of mouths to feed. This service offers simple ingredients, straightforward recipes, and only 6 steps or less to prepare any dish. This makes it a great option for busy families who are looking for quick and easy meal solutions that are both healthy and affordable.
I was pleasantly surprised at the number of kid-friendly recipes that are available. This means that families can have a quick and healthy dinner on the table without any fuss. The No Chop! Buffalo Fried Chicken Tacos could become a new family favorite and there’s always the classic Cheeseburger for more picky eaters.
The menu is huge and contains options for every meal. Customers can choose from a wide range of breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes that are sure to satisfy everyone's taste buds. Read more about available recipes in our in-depth review.
There’s so much choice when it comes to adding additional items to your order. When editing your weekly recipes, click the Market tab to see what else you can add. It includes soups, sides, snacks, and other pantry staples. This makes it easy to get everything you need in one place and eliminates the need for multiple trips to the grocery store.
You can decide to make all of your meals vegetarian if you don’t eat meat. This makes it much easier to see what’s on the menu and to plan your meals accordingly. Some vegetarian options include Black Bean Burrito Bowl and Crispy Maple-Tamari Tofu, which is also suitable for vegans.
Recipe cards are only available digitally, but there’s an option to print them if you prefer. While most of the recipes are beginner-friendly, some customers may find them hard to follow as there are no step-by-step pictures.
Managing your account with Dinnerly is easy, and you can skip, pause, or cancel deliveries easily in advance. It's important to check the recipes beforehand in case you need any pantry staples. Our reviewer recommends doing this as you might need something out of the ordinary like white wine vinegar.
The minimum order for Dinnerly is 3 meals for 2 people up to 6 meals for 4 people. Prices start at $2.12 per serving, so you can have fresh food sorted for a reasonable cost.

5 dietary options including paleo, keto, and vegan
Eat Clean is a meal delivery service that caters to your specific dietary needs. It offers meal plans for those on paleo, keto, plant-based, or traditional diets. So, whether you are a meat eater or a vegan, you can find something that suits your needs.
The meals are delivered fresh, not frozen, and are prepared and nutritionally balanced. All you have to do is heat them up in the oven or microwave, and you have a delicious and healthy meal in minutes. It's that easy!
If you’re following a paleo diet, you can try some unique and tasty recipes such as BBQ Pulled Pork with Plantain Mash or Jumbo Shrimp Jambalaya with Cauliflower Rice. However, it's important to note that you can't mix and match between plans, so choose carefully which plan suits your needs.
The plant-based menu features processed proteins like Chick’n Nuggets and Beyond Sausage. So if you prefer whole foods and natural proteins, head to Purple Carrot instead.
Nutritional information is provided on each recipe, so you can easily see the protein, carbs, and fat in each meal. This is helpful if you are tracking your macros or following a specific diet. Check out our in-depth information about Eat Clean.
Meals are portioned for 1 person, making it a great option for singles. Unfortunately, families may find the portion sizes too small, and it's better to try other meal delivery services like Blue Apron. If you need keto or vegan meals, I recommend Green Chef for its delicious prepared meals.
The selection of meal types isn’t as extensive as some other meal delivery services, and you can't add any extras to your delivery. However, Eat Clean does offer some breakfast options like Whole Wheat Blueberry Stuffed French Toast, so you can start your day off right too.
Prices start at $8.60 per serving, and the more you order, the lower the cost per meal, making it an affordable option for many. You can choose between 4 and 12 meals per week. So if you want healthy, fresh meals every day, Eat Clean has got you covered.

From pricing and menu options to delivery schedules and meal types, it can be overwhelming to navigate the many options available. Here are some tips to help you choose the right meal delivery service for your needs and preferences.
Consider your dietary needs: Before choosing a meal delivery service, it's important to consider your dietary needs. If you follow a more restrictive diet such as vegetarian, gluten-free, or keto, try a service like Green Chef.
Look for a variety of options: The best meal delivery services offer a wide range of meal options to choose from, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Look for a service that offers a variety of cuisines, meal types, and prep times. Many also offer add-ons such as desserts, sides, and salads.
Check delivery areas and times: Some services may only deliver on certain days of the week, so make sure the delivery schedule fits your needs. It's also important to check if you need to be available to accept the delivery.
Decide on meal types: Consider whether you prefer meal kits or prepared meals. Some services may offer both options. If you enjoy cooking and have the time then try meal kits like those from HelloFresh but if you’re super busy or dislike cooking then opt for prepared meals such as those from Factor.
