30 Healthy Meal Prep Delivery Services You Need To Try

Healthy delivery services have increased in popularity in recent years, and it's no secret why this has occurred. After all, meal prep and food delivery services take the guesswork and time out of preparing food. If you want to eat healthier, these services make it that much easier. Whether you dislike cooking, struggle to find the time to prepare more nutritious meals, or want to change your lifestyle, these companies can potentially solve all your culinary quandaries.

Of course, you'll still have to do some thinking, at least at the outset. When choosing a meal prep delivery service, consider the number of meals each package provides, the ingredients used, specific dietary preferences they target, and the price of the service. If you eat gluten-free, are vegan, want to up your protein intake, or simply do not want to worry about grocery shopping this week, such considerations can factor into your final decision.

We did the research and taste tests, so you can focus on what matters: adding to your cart. These 30 healthy meal prep delivery services will help you get started.


Kicking off our healthy meal prep delivery services is arguably one of the healthiest companies on our list: Sakara. Sakara operates on twelve nutritional pillars that include no calorie counting, plant-based protein, and nutrient density. This program focuses on whole foods and is all plant-based, with the argument that do so will leave you looking and feeling your best.

Sakara offers a variety of meal prep plans, but the weekly menu reigns in popularity, consisting of three meals a day over five days for $349. If you can afford Sakara, the company provides incredibly clean and delicious meals. However, keeping up with a weekly plan that costs $23 a meal can get expensive quickly. Other programs like the 30-day reset and a Bridal Program will set you back even more. While spending this kind of money on a meal prep service might sound absurd, we can see how the marketing and benefits of their programs rope so many people into purchasing one of their programs.

Home Chef

If you want more autonomy in your food choices, Home Chef asks you to take a short survey to help narrow down your menu. We love the customizability of Home Chef to enable you to order meals that fit your diet and preferences.

When personalizing your recipe selections, the site first asks you to choose between Home Chef, a more recipe-based option, or Home Chef's Fresh and Easy, which requires little to no prep work. We'll dive into Fresh and Easy in more detail later. Next, you can decide between calorie or carb-conscious recipes and, finally, disclose any foods you want to avoid.

While Home Chef does provide healthier options, the meals appear to have relatively large portion sizes. However, Home Chef checks the affordable box, with each meal coming to roughly $6.99, depending on the program you choose. This is practically a steal if you want a delicious meal prep service that fits your dietary needs without breaking the bank.

Fresh and Easy

Brought to you by the same creators of Home Chef is Fresh and Easy, the low-to-no-prep recipe service. We appreciate this option for those weeks when you're in a hurry but don't want to compromise your health goals. Like Home Chef, you can still opt for calorie or carb-conscious meals and avoid certain foods you do not prefer.

Since, spending hours in the kitchen does not always make sense in our busy world, Fresh and Easy allows you to select meal kits that you can prepare in 30 minutes or less. You can dig into meals like Jalapeño Popper Shrimp Quesadillas and Carne Asada Steak Burritos with minimal prep and wait time.

Not having to cook takes the pressure off you and leaves time for more important things in life, so Fresh and Easy may be the best bet for you and your more harried, time crunched days.


Factor focuses on fresh, tasty, and easy meals delivered right to your door. What makes it unique is that those meals are designed by a dietician so you can feel especially good about what you're eating. It's easy for companies to use buzzwords and leave us thinking we're making the best eating choice for our bodies. With Factor, you can rest easy knowing dieticians put science-backed nutritional quality at the forefront of every meal.

Those following most diets can benefit from eating on Factor, including low-carb, low-calorie, and plant-based needs. Factor charges between $11 and $12 per meal, depending on your particular plan, making this a relatively affordable meal prep service.

We love the weekly variety, includingmore than 29 delicious creations like Keto Ranch Chicken, Yia Yia's Greek Beef Bowl, or the Jalapeno Popper Burger. You'll probably find something to love, but if not, Factor allows you to pause your subscription.

Daily Harvest

From smoothies to bowls and flatbreads, Daily Harvest strives to make eating fruits and vegetables accessible to anyone. The brand commits to providing a better food system, given that our foods can affect our look and feel. Plus, while Daily Harvest strives to help you get your daily serving of fruits and vegetables, they are also committed to cutting their carbon footprint.

Daily Harvest offers three different meal plans to choose from, ranging from your choice of nine to 24 food items. As you add more to your cart, the price per item decreases. The Medium Plan is the most popular, and includes your choice of 14 items. If you choose a mix of smoothies and bowls, your total will come to $116, but the medium plan discount and new member discount will drop your total at checkout to under $100.00. For the healthy ingredients and variety of meals, this service is worth it for the price.


If you like to cook but struggle with finding new recipes or buying all the right ingredients, consider HelloFresh. This service sends you fresh, pre-portioned ingredients with easy-to-follow instructions. It makes cooking a breeze and allows you to feel like the ghef you always dreamed of being.

One of the biggest perks of HelloFresh is its variety. Each week you get to pick from over 50 meal options, then personalize your plan based on dietary preferences, along with number of meals and people. With the new member discount, you can receive HelloFresh's most popular plan,for two people (consisting of four recipes a week) for only $35 the first week.

If you like to cook but need a nudge and help in the recipe and prep work department, HelloFresh saves the day. These recipes create delicious meals. We will warn you that if cooking still overwhelms you, then you may want to stick to the premade meal prep services.

Blue Apron

This healthy meal prep service markets to those with a busy lifestyle, but we feel like kits are slightly more time-consuming in the kitchen than other premade meal services.

Like so many other services, Blue Apron allows you to choose your meals, then sends fresh ingredients and instructions to your door. The service enables you to pick from over 50 recipes, but we found the choice of the number of meals per week surprising. When finalizing your meal-kit plans, Blue Apron prompts you to choose your dietary preference. Next, you choose between two to four servings per meal and two to four meals per week.

While the meal amounts feel limited, if you choose the four servings per meal, you can still enjoy leftovers the next day. Overall, Blue Apron's meals make up for the quantity as we loved its choices, like Cheesy Grilled Chicken and Pasta and Crispy Skin Salmon.


Thistle's menu mimics a healthy food Pinterest board, and we are here for it. The colorful and nutritious meals get you excited to eat healthier. This aligns with the brand's mission to provide meals packed with quality ingredients and superfoods. Additionally, all meals are gluten and dairy-free.

For all that, we expected Thistle's price to be much higher. However, meals start at only $11.50, consistent with other tried brands. And the more meals you order, the lower the price per meal. It's a steal, if you ask us. If you live in Thistle's local delivery zone, you can choose your meals and juice. Otherwise, you can enjoy a preset plan if your meal service needs to be shipped.

Menus include smoothie bowls, salads, grain bowls, and fresh vegetable spreads. Thistle provides plenty of healthy variety on their weekly menus, a pleasant surprise for a plant-based company with a more focused direction that other services.


Freshly takes the cake in the easy healthy eating department with meals that are ready to eat in under three minutes. Not only does Freshly make eating convenient, but the meals are also nutritious. The service prioritizes simple swaps and veggies to eliminate unnecessary sugars and processed ingredients. Easy and healthy? Freshly is a meal service we can get behind.

Freshly offers extreme flexibility in the number of meals you can order, ranging from as low as four to as high as 12 meals a week, with prices as low as $8.99 per meal. Affordable is our love language, and Freshly certainly checks that box. The more you buy, the more you save on creations like Homestyle Chicken, Sausage Baked Penne, and Pork Carnitas. Freshly keeps getting better with gluten-free, dairy-free, plant-based, and low-calorie meal options to fit your dietary needs and preferences. You really cannot go wrong with this healthy meal prep delivery service.


Let's switch gears from meal prep for cooking to meal delivery services for weight loss, shall we? Nutrisystem provides balanced, nutritious meals specifically intended to help you lose weight. That said, anyone looking to live a healthier lifestyle can use this service, not just for weight loss.

Nutrisystem offers some of the greatest meal variety of our reviewed plans, upwards of 160 per week. It is also one of the cheapest options of all, ranging from $9.99 to $13.57 per day. You can get seven days' worth of meals and snacks as well, maximizing the benefits of your service.

Nutrisystem offers skillet meals and frozen microwavable meals, so you can get the feeling of cooking a bit if you'd like and the convenience of ready-to-eat meals. Each week, you can either let the chef pick or make your own decisions on meal types. We also appreciate that Nutrisystem prioritizes protein in every meal to keep you satisfied.

Green Chef

Thirty minutes is all you need to whip up a delicious dinner, at least with Green Chef. This meal kit service provides the ingredients, seasonings, marinades, and directions, so all you have to do is get cooking. As is the case for previous meal kits, this service eliminates the guesswork of cooking, but not the cooking method itself.

With Green Chef, you can choose meals that fit a variety of dietary needs, including keto, paleo, low-carb, and plant-based diets. Yet, you can still expect decadent meals like Cheesy Pesto Chicken Bowls, Kale Salad with Pork, or Tofu with Cherry Barbecue Sauce.

To order, simply select your meal type (that is, your dietary preference), how many people you will be eating with (from two to six), and whether you would like three or four meals per week. We find this last number of meal selections slightly random, but the meal options make up for the slightly confusing quantity.


It's no secret we love affordable meals, so EveryPlate struck a chord with us. This service offers meals as low as $4.99. Yes, you read that correctly. This healthy and affordable meal kit service will have you feeling like a chef and saving money in the process.

We expected something to be missing when we noticed the low prices. As it turns out, catering to special diets was the missing puzzle piece, with the exception of plant-based options. If you have dietary restrictions, then you'll probably want to look elsewhere.

Everyplate offers 17 diverse recipes weekly, which is lower than what you can get from other services. Still, items like French Onion Chicken, Gravy Lover's Meatballs, and Chicken Sausage and Tomato Linguine made up for the limited choices. Like many other services, you can choose between ordering food for two or four people and three to five meals per week.

Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon

Martha Stewart is known for her culinary work, so it's no surprise she also created a healthy meal prep delivery service to share her skills in the kitchen with others. Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon allows you to choose from 40 weekly recipes, which is a nice sweet spot between having options but not feeling overwhelmed.

Like other plans, Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon allows for customization and cancellation at any time. This service lets you choose between enough food for two or four people and between two and six meals a week. Two people can enjoy six meals each week for as low as $3.92 per portion, making this one of the more affordable kits we reviewed.

It's no surprise Martha provides especially tasty dishes like Sriracha-Butter Ranch Steak and Greek Chicken Gyro. If you have dietary preferences, Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon offers gluten-free meals, low-calorie, kid-friendly, and meals to make in under 30 minutes.


Diet-to-Go operates by creating meals straight from their chef's kitchen to you, with a particular focus on weight loss. Diet-to-Go's secret to losing weight comes from their portion-controlled offerings to help you eat well without overthinking or overeating. It's nice to know the delicious creations are nutritious and portioned to help you reach your weight loss goals.

We appreciate that Diet-to-Go creates balanced meals to ensure you don't feel restricted while eating their meals. One of our ranking pillars in this roundup includes variety, and Diet-to-Go offers certainly goes there, with keto, vegetarian, and seafood-free options. However, it does not offer gluten-free meals. Overall, the menu features more basic meals like Egg Quesadillas, Chicken Burgers, and Harissa Salmon to make eating healthy easy and delicious. If weight loss is your goal, Diet-to-Go is a great option, but if you want to cook more flavorful meals, you may want to check out another service.

Purple Carrot

The name speaks for itself, with plant-based meals to help you feel your best. Purple Carrot promotes a vegetarian diet and highlights the health and environmental benefits of eating plants.

Purple Carrot offers both meal kits and prepared meals, which differentiates it from many other services that only offer one or the other. Their kits feed two or four people, while their prepared meals come in single servings.

Purple Carrot provides a variety of delicious plant-based meals, but let's talk price. Meal kits offer the option of two to four serving for three of four meals each week, totaling $11.99 per serving. Purple Carrot charges slightly more for the prepared meals ($12.99 per serving), and you can pick from six, eight, or 10 dinners per week.

If you don't mind eating sans meat, Purple Carrot is top-notch. We love choosing between a meal kit of prepared meals and knowing the meals will make us and the environment feel a bit better.


Sunbasket is a service that prioritizes organic produce and clean ingredients to leave your stomach and heart full, no matter which Sunbasket plan — meal kit or prepared meals — you choose.

Sunbasket provides some of the most diet-friendly offerings of the meal prep services. Whether you want to eat paleo, vegetarian, gluten-free, Mediterranean, or one of any number of other options, rest assured that Sunbasket delivers. Enjoy meals that serve two people, like Paprika-spiced chicken with frisée salad and sweet potato wedges. These colorful, delicious meals will surely make you want to order more week after week.

Sunbasket starts meals as low as $4.27 a serving, at least with your first order discount. We recommend Sunbasket for the wide variety of meals and diets the company encompasses. If organic ingredients, food diversity, and price are important to you when ordering a healthy meal prep service, look no further than Sunbasket.


Ed and Caroline Cederquist designed the next healthy meal plan on our roundup, BistroMD. Losing weight can be stressful, challenging, and overwhelming. BistroMD strives to take some of the work off of you with their science-backed healthy meals.

BistroMD helps you spice up your diet life with delicious meals like Italian Style Omelets, Lasagna, and Espresso Fudge Cookie Bites. Dieting does not necessarily mean giving up your favorite foods. Instead, BistroMD can help you focus on portion control and getting more high-quality nutrients.

While the other healthy meal prep delivery services thus far include a selection of portions and meal amounts, BistroMD gives you the option to select the number of weeks you plan to participate in the program. Choose between five or seven weeks or call to customize a program. Another differentiator between BistroMD and other services is that this meal prep offers men's and women's programs to help you lose weight.


Let's make dinner affordable again, shall we? Dinnerly strives to bring yummy recipes and ingredients to your door to make dinner tonight a bit easier without utterly breaking your bank account.

What sets Dinnerly apart from the others? The price. Dinnerly costs $4.99 per serving, making this one of the most affordable dinner meal kits on this list. With only minor differences separating one healthy meal prep delivery service from another, it's hard to think how Dinnerly could be significantly cheaper than what it chareges right now.

Dinnerly uses quality ingredients but cuts costs first by eliminating paper recipe cards and delivering them electronically. Second, the recipes are more straightforward, with fewer ingredients that make it easier to prepare and package. Finally, Dinnerly uses simple packaging and avoids fancy marketing. Who knew all the logistics and costs that went into a meal prep service added up to so much?

Pete's Paleo

Pete's Paleo meal prep service is perfect for a cave dweller. The paleo diet supposedly mimics how people ate in the Stone Age, after. all. It is also no surprise then that the menu changes seasonally, as different foods are in season.

For those not familiar with paleo, this diet includes lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, and little to no grains. Pete's Paleo whips up meals like Ground Beef Stir Fry (no rice, of course) and Chicken Meatballs with Spaghetti Squash. Every meal contains four and a half ounces of protein and seven ounces of veggies to keep you satisfied.

Now, let's talk price and quantity. This meal service allows you to choose from five meals a week to 14. The family plan increases the serving size of every meal by four. If you adhere to a paleo diet or are interested in trying it, Pete's Paleo meals are a great place to start.

Splendid Spoon

Convenience is the foundation for Splendid Spoon, which makes eating healthy easy with smoothies and microwavable meals that will help keep you full and satisfied. Splendid Spoon works closely with chefs and nutritionists to ensure all meals contain the nutrients needed to sustain a healthy diet.

High-quality ingredients are at the forefront of Splendid Spoon's mission. Additionally, the brand makes it easy for those with dietary restrictions and preferences, given that all its meals are plant-based, gluten-free, unprocessed, non-GMO, and made with no artificial sugars.

Splendid Spoon makes choosing meals easy and allows for filtering based on the benefits the meal provides and your dietary needs. You can pick from a fairly diverse menu of smoothies, soup and grain bowls, noodle bowls, soups, and more. We recommend the Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner + Reset Plan, which includes five smoothies, five soups, grain bowls, five noodles, and five light soups.


Do you find yourself having stomach problems? Food can be good medicine, as I'm sure the founder of Eipcured would agree. Chief Culinary Officer chef Dani feels good knowing the food the team creates can help people feel better and love food again. Epicured focuses on Low FODMAP foods to make healing your gut easier. This meal plan differs from the others because it's not for those feeling lazy or unmotivated in the kitchen but rather for those with gut health issues.

Epicured is the first 100% gluten-free and low FODMAP meal subscription service to aid those who may be dealing with digestive disorders. The service offers various meal bundles depending on your goals and preferences. We found the Freezer-Filler Bundle unique as it preps for a rainy day when you might need a gluten-free or low FODMAP option. Otherwise, standard bundles range from three to four days in length.


Start eating more plants with Veestro's plant-based creations, which can help you eat healthier, feel better, and perhaps lose weight. This plan makes it eating plant-based and nutritious, convenient, and straightforward.

Like other services, Veestro allows you to choose your weekly meals. Chefs will work tirelessly to deliver these delicious frozen creations to your home. From there, you only have to heat the meals and enjoy them. Veestro requires no cooking or prep, so it's a nearly foolproof way to start eating better and plant-based.

Veestro offers two weekly menus, based on whether you intend to eat plant-based or lose weight. The A La Carte menu allows you to filter by dietary preference and includes creations like Jackfruit Jambalaya and Meatless Lasagna. The Weight Loss Menu highlights lower-calorie offerings like Beluga Lentil Braise. These plans land in the middle price point of our list, at around $11.93 per meal.


It's time to start feeling like a top chef in your kitchen. CookUnity provides dishes from incredible culinary professionals, so you don't have to work so hard in the kitchen to put out qualityy meals. CookUnity started with the idea that chefs no longer need to be locked into the typical culinary restaurant model. Now they can share their delicious creations with people like you looking for healthy meal prep delivery services.

To kick off your order, input your zip code, and choose the subscription that works for you. With CookUnity, choose from four to 16 meals each week. As you can assume, the more meals you choose, the less each meal costs.

CookUnity prioritizes using sustainably sourced and seasonal ingredients, while the weekly menu accommodates a wide variety of dietary needs and healthy ingredients. Still, the calories are higher in these dinners than in others we reviewed. In this case, we'll enjoy the delicious creations by turning a blind eye to the added calories.


Mealtime does not need to be a long process, at least not with a service like Gobble. Their meal kits take just 15 minutes to prepare, significantly shorter than other healthy meal prep kits. With less time at the stovetop, you can focus on unwinding after a long day or spending time with those you love.

To start eating with Gobble, go to their site and choose your meals. They prep everything you need, deliver the kits to your door, and you can have dinner on the table 15 minutes after taking it out of the package.

Whether you choose the classic dinner, lean & clean, or the vegetarian plan, the prices remain consistent. Gobble remains a relatively affordable option in the world of subscription meal kit services, especially if you don't enjoy cooking and prioritize convenience. For less than $120 a week, a couple can enjoy five dinners like Parmesan-Crusted Chicken with Basil Lemon Orzo Salad or Shrimp Tacos with Avocado, Cabbage Slaw, and Chimichurri.


Our next healthy meal prep delivery gives us more veggies and fewer problems. Mosaic makes it easy to eat well with veggie-filled meals ready in minutes. We loved the mission of Mosaic, which is to get good food on every table. The founders strive to share the home-cooked meals they were lucky enough to enjoy while growing up with others.

Uniquely, Mosaic lets you shop in the following categories: veggie bowls, family meals, soups, oat bowls, and mosaic+. Additionally, the mosaic+ section showcases meals created by your favorite chefs. With this feature, you can potentially feel like you're eating in a five-star restaurant in the comfort of your home.

Initially, we found it interesting that Mosaic charges a $70 minimum for each box but know that this rule is intended to reduce packaging waste. Mix and match your favorites and add to your cart for a plant-based week full of meals.


Have you ever let a quiz decide your meal fate for the week? If you answered no, Hungryroot will change how you pick your next meal. With Hungryroot, you take a quiz and tell the company what you usually eat and your goals. The service then recommends foods catered to those goals.

The biggest differentiator here is personalization, which you won't always find with other meal services. Hungryroot provides a mix of chef-curated recipes, fresh groceries, and snacks to keep you living your best life all week long. And if you follow a specific diet like paleo, gluten-free, or vegan, the quiz adjusts your meals accordingly.

If you want a healthy meal prep service that takes out all the work of meal planning, grocery shopping, meal prepping, and recipe finding, Hungryroot saves the day. It takes the guesswork out of living a healthy lifestyle, so you can focus more on what's essential in life beyond the kitchen.


No preparation, no problem is the name of the game with this healthy meal prep delivery service. Snapkitchen provides a variety of never-frozen meals, so you don't need to worry about the quality of your food even as it makes its way to your home. Instead, you can simply leave that sort of time-consuming work to the professionals.

Why might you pick this service? Snapkitchen prioritizes quality ingredients, for one. What's more, evey meal is gluten-free and, with good ingredients, it makes clean eating delicious and convenient. This meal service allows you to choose six to 12 meals per week and mix and match the favorites based on your preferences. 

As a preview, you can choose from items like Turkey Meatloaf With Potato-Turnip Mash and Green Beans or Almond-Crusted Salmon With Roasted Carrots and Zucchini. You certainly won't stray away from a colorful plate packed with nutrients with Snapkitchen.

Jenny Craig

If you're familiar with meal prep services and weight loss programs, Jenny Craig might bring on a wave of nostalgia. Jenny Craig has rebranded in recent years, giving you more options to lose weight in a healthy way. Beyond pre-made meal, the service includes one-on-one coaching in some programs.

For as little as $13.99, you can receive seven lunches and dinners per week. For $21.99, they add seven breakfasts. Finally, for $23.99 a day, you can ensure all seven days of meals, snacks, and desserts are Jenny Craig approved with the addition of personal coaching to help you through the program.

The menu items take the guesswork out of eating healthy but still typically allow you to enjoy the foods you love most. What other diet lets you eat cinnamon rolls and pepperoni pizza on a semi-regular basis? For many, Jenny Craig makes it easy and delicious to lose weight.

Fresh n' Lean

Fresh n' Lean bills itself as the ready-to-eat, organic, and chef-prepared meal service. This one screams healthy from the second you land on the website until the box gets delivered. It's the food your gym-rat best friend used to make, but better.

With Fresh n' Lean, you know the quality will be elite. The brand focuses on organically-sourced ingredients with no added sugar or artificial stuff. "Fresh" is in the name, after all. With Fresh n' Lean on hand, you can pop these meals in the microwave for three minutes and still feel good about your food choices whenthe timer dings.

While these meals contain clean ingredients and will help you reach your goals, we did find that they lacked flavor compared to many of the chef-inspired meals and kits we tried. Still, with the assistance of a little hot sauce, we'd recommend Fresh n' Lean to a friend.
