A food trend that is still going strong, meals delivered straight to your doorstep with all the ingredients needed to whip up a home-cooked meal. But which have your health in mind? Here are five meal delivery kits with the healthiest options available today.
Purple Carrot is solely a plant-based meal delivery kit service offering a fun way to enjoy more fruits and veggies in your life. I’ve heard these vegan meals are quite large and still just as satisfying with halved portions. (Pst! They also offer breakfast and lunch add-ons.)
With a variety of meal plans to suit your lifestyle, including “Heart Smart” and “Omnivore”, Green Chef prides itself on being a USDA certified organic meal delivery kit company. I also love their transparency with their ingredient list on their nutrition label so it’s not a guessing game.
Eat Well Nashville
Eat Well Nashville was founded on the goal of helping the people of Middle Tennessee live a happy, healthy life. This company provides deliciously healthy, fully-prepared meals delivered straight to your door.
It’s no surprise to hear that as the largest meal-delivery kit company, HelloFresh delivers nationwide. What I love about this option is that it is lower in sodium than its competitors (~500 mg or less). And with heart disease being the number one cause of death in Tennessee, we love any reason to eat more heart-healthy.
MEEL is a local meal delivery kit service from Nashville, TN that also offers “Farmstand Boxes”. MEEL kits are always organic, locally sources, freshly harvested, and sustainably packaged. This is a perfect fit for those who want local farm fresh goodies, but may not have time to get to the farmer’s market.
