If you’ve tried EveryPlate and realized it’s not for you, there’s no reason to give up on meal kit delivery services altogether. When I first tried EveryPlate, I was drawn in by some of its features. You can read about the whole experience in my full-length EveryPlate review.
To be honest, while EveryPlate has a lot going for it and I enjoyed putting my meals together, I found comparable options elsewhere.
Fresh and Easy was perfect for the days when I wanted to do more than just order take out. I still felt like I was “cooking” – but didn’t have to deal with the prep and any of the cleanup.
HelloFresh offers a ton of choices, which means that, unlike some other meal kit delivery services (including EasyPlate), you feel like you always have a wide range of options instead of choosing between a handful of meals that don’t tickle your taste buds.
Then there’s Green Chef, which gets a big thumbs up for its organic options and the ease of its recipes.
Canceling your EveryPlate subscription is really easy. Unlike some of the others, it doesn’t involve speaking to anyone on the phone or sending an email (what’s with that?). All you need to do is log in to your account, hit “Plan settings” and scroll down to “Deactivate Account.” Once you’ve done that, you’ll see this warning:
Stay firm and don’t let this enticing offer sway you! Instead, choose the reason you’ve decided to cancel, then click “Deactivate plan.” Once you’ve done that, you’re free to find a better-fitting meal kit delivery service.
As with all of these companies, timing is everything. If you decide to cancel fewer than five days before your next delivery is due, your credit card will still be charged. To make sure this doesn’t happen, cancel before 11.59 pm PST at least five days before delivery to stop the recurring order and receive a refund.
Just because you canceled your EveryPlate subscription, it doesn’t mean you have to go back to the old days of time-consuming meal planning, grocery shopping, and recipe searching. There are plenty of alternatives to EveryPlate that might work out better for you. Here are three great options worth a try.
There’s a reason why Home Chef’s Fresh and Easy Plan calls itself the easiest meal plan ever.
Fresh and Easy provides you with a menu of easy-to-cook meals. So easy that all of the veggies come pre-portioned, peeled, and sliced. Now that’s service. All that’s left to do is put the ingredients together in a pan and cook!
There are around 11 different meal options available each week, and you can customize your choices so you get exactly what you want. All you have to do is choose how many diners and meals per week, then filter out any ingredients you don’t want.
I really enjoyed testing out this meal plan for a few different reasons. For the full scoop, check out my Fresh and Easy review.
HelloFresh is one of the biggies in the world of meal kits. Aside from offering four plans – Veggie, Meat & Veggies, Family-Friendly, and Low-Calorie – it also offers meals for a range of skill levels. That means you can up your kitchen game without too much effort. When you’re ready, you can challenge yourself with more complicated recipes.
I go through this in detail in my Hello Fresh review.
If organic ingredients are top of your must-have list, you have to try Green Chef. The company is the first USDA-certified meal kit delivery service and it’s also a really good option for anyone following a specific diet or eating plan. Green Chef’s keto plan is a particularly popular option.
Apart from loving the organic aspect, find out what else I thought about Green Chef in this full-length review.
If you decide EveryPlate is not for you, canceling your subscription is among the easiest of any meal prep service I’ve tried. Just make sure you plan ahead (at least five days) to make sure you aren’t charged for a delivery you don’t want.
Once you’ve canceled, the good news is there are plenty of other companies out there offering reasonably priced and easy-to-follow recipes for you to try out.
