Meal delivery companies, such as Home Chef, are subscription-based services that deliver either recipes and ingredients, or prepared meals to your door. Most services offer weekly deliveries, others can be as and when you need them.
Food delivery services, including Postmates and Grubhub, deliver ready-to-eat restaurant food that’s been ordered via the company’s app or website.
While food delivery is quicker, and no doubt more convenient than meal delivery, it can also be unhealthy and hard on your wallet if it becomes a habit, so meal delivery services are the better long-term solution.

The recipes are easy to follow, with detailed instructions and videos available on the app. Alongside its creative, global-inspired dishes, you’ll find a Wellness plan that features balanced, WW-Approved recipes – a perfect solution for anyone looking to cook healthy meals at home. Find out more in our complete Blue Apron review.
On the website, you’ll also spot a Market page where you can buy one-off meal kits, kitchen utensils, wines in bulk, and its signature spice blends.

Purple Carrot brings the power of plants to meal delivery. Unlike many other meal delivery services, Purple Carrot doesn't focus on processed meat substitutes. Instead, it creates inventive, nutrient-dense meals using fresh vegetables and plant-based proteins. To find out more about the thought behind the recipes, read our dedicated review.
The company also has a dedicated Plantry, where you can buy snacks and desserts like vegan marshmallows and chocolate. It also offers a couple of speedy breakfast and lunch options per week.
The meal kits are super simple to put together and will usually be on the table in around 30 minutes. But for those nights when you need something quick, Purple Carrot also offers a selection of prepared meals.
25 or more recipes on the menu each week
High-quality, locally sourced produce
Great for busy families
HelloFresh is a firm favorite with many Americans – and for good reason. Not only does it offer a good range of recipes (more than 25 each week), it also has a strong focus on sustainably sourced ingredients, and starts from an affordable $7.49 per serving.
There are six plans to choose from, including Veggie, Pescatarian, Calorie-Smart, and others. The nutritional info is clear on every recipe, but you might find this is one service that falls short for vegans. For more details about the plans, read our in-depth review.
If you’re looking for a meal kit to feed the entire family, HelloFresh is a good place to start. The menu is varied and nutritious, with everything from Easy Prep and Easy Cleanup recipes to Takeout Favorites the whole family will love. A family of four can also order up to six meals per week – if that doesn’t take the stress out of meal planning, I don’t know what does!
Order meal kits and prepared meals
Premium, organic, sustainably sourced ingredients
Diet plans to cover almost every kind of lifestyle
Sunbasket’s goal is to make healthier living both more sustainable and accessible. It’s a certified-organic company that prides itself on using only high-quality, locally sourced ingredients – and that includes hormone-free meat and sustainably caught seafood. It also strongly believes in giving back, which is why every week it donates food and meals to various charities across the US.
Another thing that sets Sunbasket apart from other meal delivery companies is its range of plans. From Gluten-Free to Diabetes-Friendly, Paleo to Mediterranean, there are 10 to choose from, and more than 40 meals on the menu each week.
Sunbasket is also one of the few meal delivery services to offer prepared meals alongside meal kits. Find out more about the menu in our dedicated review.
And as well as a range of dinnertime meals, you can pick up tons of fridge-fillers – think sauces and dips to bread, pasta, plant-based proteins, and more.
Certified organic produce and high-quality proteins
Keto, paleo, and vegan-friendly recipes
Prepped ingredients include ready-made marinades and spice blends
Green Chef is a meal kit delivery service that takes a rather different approach to healthy living. Firstly, it uses only certified organic produce and responsibly sourced, non-GMO ingredients in its recipes, all of which are expertly crafted to be nutritionally balanced.
Choose from three plans: Keto + Paleo, Plant-Powered, and Balanced Living. You’ll find around nine to 12 meals on the menu each week, depending on the plan, including many vegan-friendly recipes and certified gluten-free dishes.
The company also takes an ethical approach to its packaging and shipping, using only recyclable materials where possible. All of Green Chef’s carbon emissions are offset through its various sustainable initiatives, too.
Green Chef recipes can be on the pricier side, but if you value high-quality, sustainably sourced ingredients and ethical practices, the price tag might be worth it for you. For a full breakdown, you can check out our in-depth review.
From a budget-friendly $4.59 per serving
Crowd-pleasing, family-friendly meals
Protein pack add-ons available
EveryPlate focuses on bringing affordable meals to its customers, which makes it great for families. You’ll find 16 new recipes each week, around four or five of which are suitable for vegetarians. Unfortunately, there are very few – if any – meals that are suitable for vegans or anyone with dietary requirements, but that’s how this company keeps its prices so low.
Look out for hearty dinners and comfort-food classics such as Ponzu Pork Meatloaves with Garlic Sesame Rice, or Hosin Turkey Sloppy Joes – they’re meals that the kids are sure to love. Find out more about the menu in our dedicated review.
Another bonus with EveryPlate is its protein packs. You can purchase chicken or steak add-ons that work perfectly for big gatherings or barbecues. They can also be frozen.
