Green Chef delivers healthy, easy-to-follow recipes to your door while making no ethical compromises. It prides itself on sustainably sourced, organic ingredients, and it’s the only meal kit company out there that offsets 100% of its direct carbon emissions and plastic packaging in every box.
There are three plans to choose from: Balanced Living, Plant-Powered plan, and the certified gluten-free Keto + Paleo, each boasting around nine new recipes every week. Be sure to choose your plan wisely though, as Green Chef doesn’t allow you to mix and match like many other meal delivery services.

The low price means these recipes are no-frills, and can usually be whipped together in six simple steps.

You’ll find a few veggie options, like the Mushroom Biscuit Pot Pie with Peas and Thyme Gravy, but even these are limited.

with Roasted Zucchini & Garlic Mashed Potatoes, alongside burgers, tacos, and hearty bowls of pasta.
