Murfreesboro's meal delivery market is saturated, making the selection of a service that aligns with your convenience, price, and dietary needs crucial. While the sheer number of options could be overwhelming, choosing the right one is important for a seamless and satisfying dining experience.
I personally researched and reviewed dozens of meal delivery services in Murfreesboro for their meal variety, freshness, convenience, price, and dietary options. From this assessment, I've shortlisted the 10 best meal delivery services tailored for people living in Murfreesboro.

Factor secured the first position on my list thanks to its incredible quality and convenience. Although the quality of microwavable meals can be a mixed bag, Factor proves that it's possible to enjoy restaurant-quality dishes in just a matter of minutes.
Factor stands out from most prepared meal delivery services by sending meals fresh, not frozen. It's recommended to consume the meals fresh, but you can easily store them in the fridge or freezer in the trays they come in if you need to extend their shelf life. A fellow reviewer tried Factor's meals and mentioned, "if healthy, prepared dinners are what you're after, then Factor ranks among the best."
Factor also provides 6 meal plans – all of which are gluten-free! You can choose to receive meals from only 1 plan or select all plans to enjoy recipes from the whole menu. These plans include:
Chef’s Choice – featuring recipes from every diet plan
Keto – focused on low-carb, high-fat, and moderate-protein recipes
Calorie Smart – offering recipes with 550 kcal per serving or fewer
Vegan & Veggie – comprising meat-free meals
Flexitarian – boasting veggies and proteins
When it comes to high-quality ingredients, Factor sets the bar. Sourcing only from farms that adhere to humane and sustainable practices, it ensures you're not just eating well but also making an ethical choice. This is especially important for those of you who often seek to support ethical and responsible agriculture.
Unlike other services that ship frozen meals, Factor delivers its dishes fresh. This quality is crucial for residents in Murfreesboro who appreciate the difference that fresh, rather than frozen, meals can make. Other prepared meal delivery services freeze meals for an unstated amount of time, begging the question of how long the food you receive has been in the freezer.
You won’t find preservatives or artificial flavors in any of Factor’s meals. This is a significant advantage for those who are health-conscious or have dietary restrictions, ensuring that you’re consuming only natural and wholesome ingredients.
Factor offers a free 20-minute nutrition consultation before you place an order. This added service helps you make the most informed choices tailored to your nutritional needs and lifestyle. Coaches will help you choose the best Factor plan for your goals. For residents of Murfreesboro focused on well-being, this personalized touch makes a world of difference.
Prices start at just $6.19 per serving when you order the maximum number of meals, making Factor a more premium service. You can order 6 – 18 individually portioned meals each week, making it best for singles or couples wanting to add more convenience to weekly meal planning and prep.
Organic fresh produce and proteins
45+ unique recipes each week
8 meal plans, including keto, gluten-free, plant-based, and more
Current deal: Get $250 off + free shipping
Green Chef offers USDA and CCOF-certified organic produce in all its meals. You can have peace of mind knowing that you're feeding you’re getting the highest quality ingredients. Green Chef almost made the top of this list since it’s one of the highest quality services out there.
Every week, you can choose from 45 recipes across 8 plans:
Keto – recipes that support the high fat, moderate protein, low carb keto regimen
Gluten-Free – certified gluten-free by the Gluten Intolerance Group
Plant-Based – vegan and vegetarian recipes
Protein-Packed – high protein recipes with 40+ g of protein per serving
Calorie Smart – recipes of 650 calories or fewer per serving
Quick and Easy – recipes ready in 25 minutes or less
Mediterranean – focused on veggies, fish, and healthy fats
Delicious Discoveries – new international recipes weekly
The Protein-Packed plan is particularly impressive with 40+ g of protein per serving. Few other meal delivery services offer protein-focused plans, and when they do, the protein per serving is typically 20 – 30 g per serving.
You’ll also find a range of meal kit prep times from 10 – 45 minutes, with most kits requiring around 30 minutes. Whether you're a culinary enthusiast or looking to simplify your weeknight cooking, you have options.
Plus, your ingredients arrive fresh and pre-portioned. Say goodbye to the time-consuming task of measuring and chopping. The ingredients in each kit are carefully portioned to streamline your meal prep process so that you won’t have to throw away any extras.
Allergy accommodations are a strong point for Green Chef. Most of its foods are whole and unprocessed, reducing the risk of hidden allergens. Meals are also clearly labeled with any potential allergens due to possible cross-contamination so that you know exactly what you’re eating.
There are also zero preservatives or artificial flavors. You get meals that are not only delicious but also free from additives or sweeteners. It emphasizes the importance of natural, whole foods, a bonus for anyone in Murfreesboro concerned about clean eating.
While Green Chef is a more premium service, it's a justifiable investment for those whose version of healthy means eating organic. A colleague of mine tried Green Chef’s high-quality meals at home and found that the ingredients were exceptionally flavorful.
Pricing begins at $9.99 per serving when you order a maximum of 24 servings per week. This is great for singles wanting to cover all meals, couples wanting to cover meals for a few nights, or small families wanting to include a few more organic meals on the menu each week.
Large selection of family-friendly meal kits
60+ meal options and plenty of add-ons from the Market
Dietary options include low-calorie, pescatarian, and vegetarian
HelloFresh features 6 flexible meal plans from which you can mix and match recipes:
Meat & Veggies – primarily protein and vegetable-based dishes
Veggie – timeless vegetarian options
Family-Friendly – well-loved dishes to satisfy everyone
Fit & Wholesome – health-conscious meals ready in under 25 minutes
Quick & Easy – dishes prepared in under 25 minutes
Pescatarian – meatless meals and Mediterranean cuisine
Customization options extend to protein choices for certain meals. If you prefer chicken over beef or tofu over shrimp, many recipes offer protein swap options. However, be aware that the availability of such customizations depends on the current ingredient stock.
Each meal kit comes with easy-to-understand recipe cards, making the cooking process a breeze, even for beginners. It's no surprise that my coworker mentioned how well-structured the recipes were and how delicious the meals were after trying out this service.
The meal kits offer predominantly American cuisine with some international flair. You don't have to drive to different parts of Murfreesboro for Italian, Mexican, or Asian food. From the comfort of your home, you can enjoy a variety of dishes that span multiple culinary traditions, making your weeknight dinners a little more exciting.
Plus, there’s a market feature that expands your options further. This market includes proteins, sides, veggies, desserts, and even breakfast items. If you want to supplement your meal kits with added proteins or sides.
One downside is the inability to browse meals by specific diets. If you're someone in Murfreesboro with strict dietary requirements like keto or paleo, you'll need to sift through the menu manually to find meals that meet your needs, as it doesn’t allow for diet-specific browsing.
It offers a family-friendly angle both in recipes and pricing. Many of the recipes are familiar American classic favorites that appeal to most palates. However, it's worth noting that the maximum you can order is 24 servings per week, so larger families in Murfreesboro may find this limit somewhat restrictive.
The order minimum is 2 recipes for 2 people and the maximum is 6 recipes for 4 for each plan. Prices start at $3.32 per serving.
Switch proteins or double up on protein portions
17 dinner kits, 20+ fast and easy kits, and 6 microwavable lunches
Dietary options include calorie-conscious, carb-conscious, and vegetarian
My colleague tested Home Chef and said it was "practically flawless," due to recipe quality and portions, since recipes were tasty and there were often meal leftovers. You can check out their review of Home Chef’s complete service here.
Home Chef offers the best protein customization options in Murfreesboro. You'll find a wide array of protein choices, increasing your meal variety like never before. For a small extra fee per portion, you can substitute a standard protein for something more upscale, like a premium cut of steak or organic chicken.
Keep an eye out for the "Customize It" feature on the recipe cards. Say you're hosting pescatarian friends; simply swap out the pork for shrimp. Or if you're vegan, replace shrimp with an Impossible Burger.
You can also filter the menu by Calorie-Conscious, Carb-Conscious, Vegetarian, and meals that take less than 30 minutes to prepare. This streamlines your selection process, letting you quickly find what suits you best. When you check out you also have the same options by which to select the meals you’ll receive.
It offers a variety of meal prep types for every culinary aspiration. From elaborate Culinary Collection meals that might take over 45 minutes to complete to microwavable lunches, Home Chef lets you pick according to how much time you're willing to spend in the kitchen. This offers something for everyone, from busy parents to cooking enthusiasts in Murfreesboro.
The service also provides Easy Prep kits that take only 10-15 minutes to complete. These are part of a whole plan called Fresh and Easy, perfect for when you want something quick and delicious. It's a godsend for those hectic weekdays when time is of the essence.
However, it may not be the best option for people with certain dietary restrictions. Home Chef does not offer specific allergy accommodations like gluten-free or dairy-free meals. Moreover, it offers few dietary accommodations for lifestyles like keto or paleo. It's better suited for people without allergies or specialized dietary concerns. Check out Green Chef for better diet accommodation.
Home Chef offers great extras you can use to enhance recipes or build your own meals. You can build your own meals by selecting from an assortment of proteins and fully prepped sides, desserts, snacks, and beverages. This flexibility allows you to truly curate your dining experience, a valuable feature for all you foodies of Murfreesboro.
This service also offers the largest amount of meals you can order per week – up to 36, making it highly convenient for larger households. With per-serving prices starting at $7.99, Home Chef offers a versatile, cost-effective way to feed your family without compromising on quality or variety.
Home Chef’s line of quick meals
Low-prep kits and prepared meals
Calorie-conscious, carb-conscious, and vegetarian options
One notable feature of Fresh and Easy's meals is that they arrive in oven- and grill-friendly dishes. Oven-ready meal kits are delivered in an oven-safe aluminum tray, while grill-ready dishes arrive prepped for easy grilling. Since the packaging is ready for immediate use, there's no need to break out your pots and pans. As a result, choosing Fresh and Easy means minimal cleanup. You can learn more in my colleague’s review of Fresh and Easy’s complete service.
Fresh and Easy is a subsidiary of Home Chef, only offering meals ready in 25 minutes or less. If you're a resident of Murfreesboro leading a busy lifestyle, it's hard to find the time to cook gourmet meals from scratch. Ingredients arrive pre-portioned, ready to be mixed, baked, heated, or grilled.
You can even make use of the same customizations as with Home Chef. With Fresh and Easy, you get the freedom to swap proteins, exchange meat for fish, or even opt for plant-based alternatives all the recipes of which are ready in 25 minutes or less.
Like Home Chef, Fresh and Easy doesn’t cater to all dietary restrictions. The service is best suited for those without gluten or dairy allergies and offers few options for specialized diets like keto or paleo. If you or someone in your household doesn't have any allergies or dietary restrictions, this is a great service to reduce meal planning, prep, and clean up.
Meals come in oven-ready aluminum trays or portioned and prepped for grilling. In Murfreesboro, where backyard BBQs and home-cooked dinners are a way of life, this feature shines. Whether you're planning to use your oven or take advantage of the nice weather with some grilling, Fresh and Easy has you covered.
You can also access Home Chef's whole menu, including extras. If you've ever used Home Chef and liked it, here's the good news: you can still order from its extensive menu. This means more choices and the ability to add extras like appetizers, prepared sides, or desserts, making your easy prep meal kit experience even easier.
Along with Home Chef, Fresh and Easy offers the largest plan size on this list. This is great for small families who want to cover a few full days of meals or couples who want to cover almost a full week’s worth of meals.
Prices per recipe start at $7.99 per serving for the maximum order, with the cost per meal increasing if fewer meals are purchased. The minimum order is 2 servings for 2 people per week. As with Home Chef, you can order different serving sizes per recipe, meaning you can order 6 servings of your favorite and 2 of a new recipe you’re trying.
Low-calorie meals for people wanting to start a weight loss diet
150+ low-calorie recipes across 7 dietary plans
Calorie smart plans with keto, gluten-free, and heart-healthy options
BistroMD offers structured, low-calorie plans for various diets. If you're living in Murfreesboro and have weight loss or calorie control on your agenda, BistroMD offers an entire menu of meals designed to fall within a 1,200–1,400 calorie per day range for women and 1,400–1,600 calories for men. This makes it easier to maintain a strict dietary regimen without the hassle of counting calories yourself.
Breakfasts contain about 250 calories, with lunches and dinners averaging 300 calories, and snacks clock in around 200 calories per portion. Check out my colleague’s thoughts on the menu and BistroMD’s claim that customers often see results within 10 days of starting a BistroMD diet plan.
BistroMD is unique in that it offers plans tailored for men and women. Men’s plans include a higher calorie count, while women’s plans include a slightly lower calorie count. You can further personalize your meal plan by selecting from the following plans:
Signature – the non-diet-specific menu of 150+ low-calorie recipes
Gluten Free – not certified gluten-free but zero gluten added
Heart Healthy – recipes with 3.5 g of fat or fewer per serving
Keto Flex – 85+ high fat, moderate protein, moderate carb meals
Diabetic – 25 g of carbs or fewer per serving
Menopause – recipes designed to help manage hormonal changes
Vegan – a program of 25 meat- and dairy-free meals
Heating up your meal is a quick process. Meals take just 2–5 minutes to heat in the microwave, making it possible to fit a balanced meal into your busy schedule. However, all meals arrive frozen, so you’ll need to ensure they’re defrosted before you heat them.
One drawback is the potential compromise on ingredient quality. Given that the meals are stored frozen, there might be some concerns regarding the freshness and quality of ingredients. BistroMD doesn’t explicitly state how long meals are frozen before they’re shipped to you. This is something to consider if you prioritize eating whole, fresh foods.
Allergen accommodations are limited to a Gluten-Free plan, which isn’t certified. If you have specific allergies apart from gluten, you'll find BistroMD lacking in options. There's currently no provision for other types of allergy accommodations, which could be a deal-breaker for some Murfreesboro residents with nut, dairy, soy, shellfish, or other types of allergy concerns.
There’s also no room for recipe customization. The meals are designed to be eaten as is to help you best stick to your calorie-restricted diet. So if you're someone who enjoys tweaking meals to suit your taste, this service may not be for you.
It’s best suited for singles embarking on a low-calorie weight loss journey. If you're single and reside in Murfreesboro, this could be an excellent starting point for achieving your weight loss goals. Because the meals are packaged in single portions, it’s convenient for those who are only shopping for themselves.
Order limits range from a minimum of 10 to a maximum of 21 meals per week. For those interested in trying it out, the commitment is relatively low, with a minimum order of just 10 meals per week. If you find it to your liking, you can scale up to 21 meals, ensuring that you’re eating low-calorie meals 3 times per day 7 days per week.
The cost per serving varies depending on your chosen program. Prices start at $8.24 for the 3 meals for 7 days (minus 1 dinner) plan. The price per serving increases as you order fewer meals. Please note that BistroMD’s shipping is the highest on this list at an extra $19.95 per delivery.
Plant-based meal kits and prepared meals
16 entrees each week, covering 3 meals a day and snacks
Dietary options include high-protein, gluten-free, and more
The entire menu from Purple Carrot is 100% plant-based vegan. For residents of Murfreesboro who are committed to a vegan lifestyle or are simply interested in plant-based eating, this service makes doing so as convenient as possible. No more sifting through produce or reading labels – everything on this menu is plant-based.
You can even choose from 8 microwavable meals each week. These meals are ready after 4 or 5 minutes of heating in the microwave. Prepared meals are best for singles since they’re individually packaged. They're even great as vegan sides in addition to your usual plant-based menu.
The menu includes 4 breakfasts, 4 lunches, 12 dinners, and 25+ Pantry items. This means you can cover breakfast, lunch, and dinner several days each week. Whether you’re trying to cover weekday meals or simply want to stock up your pantry with vegan products, Purple Carrot has you covered.
A minor downside is that you must choose between meal kits or fully prepared meals. While both options offer convenience and quality, some people prefer the flexibility to mix and match. If you're looking to combine the joy of cooking some meals with the ease of ready-to-eat options, you might find this limitation a tad restrictive.
My colleague is an omnivore but tried out Purple Carrot at home and was impressed. He wrote a complete review of his nearly flawless experience with its food and service.
Veggies are the undeniable stars in Purple Carrot's dishes. Instead of treating vegetables as mere sidekicks, the service puts them front and center in every meal. Whereas alternative meats are used more frequently than not as protein sources in plant-based diets, Purple Carrot instead uses beans, quinoa, and the like for “meaty” ingredients.
Purple Carrot also offers plenty of globally-inspired cuisine. If you're a Murfreesboro local yearning for flavors beyond Southern comfort food, you're in for a treat. From Thai curries to Mediterranean-inspired salads, the menu covers a wide range of international tastes.
The complete menu rotates on a weekly basis. While the menu isn’t as large as HelloFresh’s or Factor’s, you’ll find new recipes each week to give you enough variety that will keep you interested in its menu.
You can select between 6–12 meal kit servings per week or 6–10 fully prepared meals each week. The price per serving begins at $8.50 per serving. A $10 shipping fee applies to orders under $99. Otherwise, delivery is free.
Nutrient-dense, low calorie, and humanely sourced foods – all gluten-free
11 protein, 4 carb, and 4 veggie ingredients to build your own meals
8 plans, including Keto, Paleo, High Protein Vegetarian, and High Protein Vegan
Trifecta is laser-focused on serving singles with athletic lifestyles. It provides fully prepared, single-portioned, microwavable meals. This eliminates the hassle of food preparation and minimizes waste, giving you the fuel you need to maintain an active lifestyle. You can select the diet plan you’d like and fill your fridge with Trifecta meals for the week.
Trifecta prides itself on offering chef-designed recipes featuring top-tier ingredients. You can let the company choose dishes for you or select them yourself if you prefer. Ingredients are high-quality and minimally prepped to ensure they’re as close to their original form as possible. Chefs design new recipes each week based on the freshest seasonal ingredients available.
Various meal plans are available, including:
Clean – non-diet-specific Trifecta recipes
Keto – recipes with an average macro balance of 30 g protein, 28 g net carbs, 20 g fat
Paleo – recipes with an average macro balance of 30 g protein, 28 g net carbs, 20 g fat
High Protein Vegetarian – vegetarian recipes with at least 21 g protein per serving
High Protein Vegan – vegan recipes with at least 21 g protein per serving
Whole30 – recipes with about 28 g net carbs per serving, certified Whole30
Meal Prep – build-your-own-recipes plan from Trifecta’s super clean ingredients
Classic – order a la carte from 9 recipes each week
The Meal Prep plan is a flexible alternative for all you DIY types. Sometimes you might want to combine your proteins, carbs, and veggies differently than what’s available on the menu. You can pick and choose fully prepared lean proteins, complex carbs, and vegetables, then simply construct your meal, heat, and enjoy.
A minor drawback is the limited menu visibility. You can't preview the menu until after entering payment information, which can be a bit of a leap of faith. However, once that step is complete, you're free to pick your recipes from their list. Just ensure you're committed before taking the plunge.
Free dietitian consultations set it apart and help you decide whether Trifecta is best for your goals. Trifecta offers Murfreesboro residents a free 20-minute consultation with a Registered Dietitian before placing an order. This is an invaluable resource for those focused on nutritional balance, fitness goals, or other dietary concerns.
For nutrition-tracking nerds, you’ll love Trifecta’s app. If you're the type to keep tabs on every macronutrient, water, fitness, and sleep patterns, you're in luck. All Trifecta’s meals are programmed in the app, so you can easily select which ones you consumed that day.
The service offers meal plan flexibility for different lifestyle needs. With Trifecta, you're not boxed into a one-size-fits-all meal program. You can choose between 5 to 21 meals per week, covering breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. This allows you to adapt the service to fit your specific needs, whether you're a busy student at Middle Tennessee State University or a full-time worker juggling multiple responsibilities.
For more insights on Trifecta's service, you can check out my colleague’s complete review, which highlights the communal feeling they found with the in-house trainers and diet coaches.
However, Trifecta is a premium service and not quite budget-friendly, which means it's pretty pricey. You’ll pay about $300 per week for 21 meals, with per-serving prices beginning at $6.00.
Clear recipe cards with images
19 unique meal kits and 8 microwave-ready per week
Dietary options include vegetarian and low-calorie
Blue Apron delivers restaurant-caliber meals without the restaurant prices. The service specializes in delivering meals with the highest quality ingredients, ordering from 100+ family-run farms that only adhere to the strictest humane and sustainability practices. While ingredients aren’t often organic, they exclude artificial flavorings, preservatives, hormones, and antibiotics.
You can choose from the following meal plans:
Signature for 2: Blue Apron’s main menu
Vegetarian: includes some pescatarian options
Wellness: Weight Watcher’s approved recipes
Signature for 4: Balanced menu with meals serving 4 people
Each recipe card features images and straightforward instructions, and you can even find how-to videos on the app, ensuring that chefs of any skill level can successfully cook each recipe. My colleague tested Blue Apron's service and found that the recipes are fun for skilled and unskilled chefs.
The average cooking time for Blue Apron's recipes is about 35 minutes. However, some recipes may require up to 50 minutes. This is a big long if you’re hoping for something easy. If you’d rather not spend that much time in the kitchen, you can check out the microwavable meal options in the Add-Ons section on the main menu, where you’ll find about 6 options each week.
Blue Apron not only emphasizes the quality of ingredients but also how they arrive. Ingredients are packaged to stay fresh and are portioned per recipe to minimize waste. When you open a Blue Apron box, you'll find carefully packaged produce, proteins, and spices, so all you have to do is follow the recipe.
Though not as extensive as Home Chef, Blue Apron allows you to add Signature Spices, kitchen utensils, 1 dessert, 1 breakfast, a salad, and some proteins to your order. You’ll even find a blue apron. Proteins are great for enhancing meals or using them as the center of your own culinary creation.
One minor drawback is its limited accommodations for allergies. While Blue Apron offers a variety of meal plans, it may not be the best choice if you have specific allergies. If dietary restrictions are a significant concern for you, this could be a limiting factor in your choice.
Blue Apron is ideal for singles, couples, or small families looking to simplify life. If you're aiming to cut down on the time and effort spent grocery shopping and meal planning, while still experiencing high-quality culinary recipes that are easily made in your home kitchen, Blue Apron's service is tailored for you.
Ordering options are designed to be flexible but do have limitations. The service requires a minimum order of 2 servings for 2 people and allows a maximum of 4 servings for up to 5 people. This makes it more suitable for smaller households in Murfreesboro, where larger families may find Home Chef’s or Fresh and Easy’s 36-portion option a better deal.
Blue Apron provides great value with prices starting at $5.74 per serving when you order the maximum serving plan.
Recipes curated by kitchen guru Martha Stewart
100+ dishes on the menu per week
Dietary options include vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and more
Marley Spoon boasts the largest recipe selection on our list. If you love variety, this feature alone makes it worth considering. With a staggering 100+ recipes to choose from every week, you're far from boxed into repetitive dinners. Whether you're a busy parent who needs to keep things fresh for picky eaters or a culinary enthusiast looking to try new things, this diverse range gives you the freedom to explore.
The cuisine primarily centers around American comfort food. While Marley Spoon offers a classic taste of home, it also adds a sprinkle of global inspiration to its menu. You'll find options like Asian stir-fries or Italian pasta dishes, giving you a bit of culinary world travel right here in Murfreesboro.
A focus on budget-friendly meals is evident. While it doesn't offer diet-specific plans or allergy accommodations, it concentrates on delivering affordable meals with a huge variety of recipes.
Though diet-specific plans are not offered, recipes are tagged by diet. You’ll find a handful of calorie-smart, zero-gluten-added, keto-friendly, vegetarian, vegan, and more recipes each week. You’ll just have to manually scroll and search for them.
Some customization options are available for recipes labeled “Customizable”. If you're in the mood to get a little creative, you can swap out proteins or even add sides and desserts to your order.
Marley Spoon is committed to being 100% carbon neutral in its shipping and delivery. Environmental concerns are a growing global concern, and it's heartening to know that your meal kit delivery is not contributing to your carbon footprint. All packaging is designed to be recyclable, and its carbon emissions are offset, making it a responsible choice for the eco-conscious.
One downside of this service is that you’ll be required to have pantry items and utensils not normally required by other meal delivery services. However, Marley Spoon compensates for this inconvenience by listing each item you’ll need to complete your recipe on each recipe card on the website. My colleague reviewed this service and mentioned that anyone who wants to cook at home more frequently will appreciate what Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon has to offer.
Ordering is super simple since there aren’t any diet plans. You simply choose how many portions you want per week, ranging from 4 to 24. This makes it accessible whether you're cooking just for yourself or planning meals for a large family. There's no need to get lost in complicated plans or pricing tiers. Per serving prices start at $2.99.
Affordable meal kits and microwavable meals
100+ recipes on the menu per week
Dietary options include omnivore, no gluten added, and vegan
With Dinnerly, you can still experience the convenience of meal delivery without breaking the bank. Its 100+ recipe selection is impressive given its affordable price point. You can cover 3 meals a day with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert recipes. You’ll also find fun appetizers like Garlic-Chive-Stuffed Mushrooms or Chorizo Corn & Bean Nachos.
What’s impressive about Dinnerly’s affordable menu is the dietary options. You’ll even find about 5 vegan recipes each week and 25+ vegetarian recipes, with a sprinkle of Keto and plenty of No Gluten Added recipes. While you can’t filter the menu by diet, each recipe is tagged with the diet it can accommodate.
A minor con of budget-friendly meal delivery services like Dinnerly is recipe complexity. Dishes are simple and easy enough for chefs of any skill level to prepare, but you won’t find any gourmet meals or fun culinary projects. Dinnerly’s priority is offering affordable, convenient meal kits. Read more about Dinnerly’s complete menu and service in my colleague’s full review.
You might try Dinnerly’s PremiYUM or microwavable meals with the money you save. PremiYUM meals offer slightly more complex recipes with a small, per-serving upcharge and microwavable meals offer added convenience for those busy days when meal prepping is just too much of a chore.
Overall, Dinnerly is a great choice for budgeting singles or small households. If saving money is your priority, and you don’t mind eating a simple, standard American diet, Dinnerly might be a great meal delivery service for you.
Dinnerly is the cheapest service on my list, with per-serving prices starting at $2.12. To get this lowest per-serving price, you have to order the maximum meals per week of 24 meals. The minimum order required is 2 meals for 2 people per week.

While compiling this top 10 list, I integrated the following tips to narrow down the best meal delivery services in Murfreesboro.
Consider your price point: Each meal delivery service on this list offers a different type of value. Home Chef offers a great per-meal price point for small families looking to cover several nights’ worth of dinners for the week. Trifecta is on the pricier side but offers amazing quality and convenience for athletic singles.
Consider your dietary needs: Dietary restrictions and preferences might be your top concern. During my research, I found Green Chef offers an excellent range of organic and specialized diet-friendly options like keto, gluten-free, and plant-based.
Consider required prep time: If your lifestyle is hectic, and you need quick and easy meal prep, Fresh and Easy is a great choice. It provides recipes that are ready in 15 minutes or less, including some oven-ready meals that only require you to throw a few ingredients together and pop them in a preheated oven.
Consider trying new recipes: Factor offers microwavable meals with an impressive array of globally-inspired flavors. These are anything but the classic TV dinners, so Factor is a great service for adding a few heat-and-eat meals to your weekly menu for those non-stop days.
Dinnerly offers the most budget-friendly options in Murfreesboro. Starting at around $2.12 per serving, Dinnerly offers a variety of recipes tailored to different cuisines and dietary preferences. Its meal kits include pre-measured ingredients, reducing waste and saving you money. Its weekly subscription model allows flexibility for your budget.
Green Chef is the top choice for diet-specific meal plans. You’ll find 8 meal plans, 5 of which are diet specific, including Keto, Plant-Based, Calorie Smart, and certified Gluten-Free.
Factor excels in providing the healthiest meal options. Each meal is free from hormones, antibiotics, and GMOs, with a focus on organic produce.
