What’s Unique About Green Chef?

A fully certified USDA organic company, Green Chef is a one-stop shop for chef-driven recipes using organic, non-GMO, and sustainable ingredients from trusted suppliers. Green Chef achieves this through a cooperation with farmers, producers, and fishermen, bringing you the kind of top quality ingredients you’d otherwise have to hunt around for at your local farmer’s market. 

Everyone knows sticking to a healthy lifestyle can be expensive and difficult time-wise. Green Chef removes the fuss of researching recipes, prepping shopping lists and grocery shopping. Offering 7 different meal plans, Green Chef puts the fun back into following a truly green lifestyle by making healthy eating more convenient. The service is fully customizable so you can decide on how often you want to cook. There's no minimum commitment, which means you can skip orders and easily change or cancel your subscription. All meals are designed to be prepared within 30 minutes. 

Green Chef dinner options

Keeping with the green theme, Green Chef comes with eco-friendly packaging and sends you exact quantities of food so you’ll never have to throw anything away. Its raw ingredients are responsibly sourced from sustainable growers.

How It Works

Joining Green Chef is straightforward. To sign up you’ll need to put in your email and ZIP Code. Next, pick the number of people you’re going to be cooking for, between 1 to 4 people. Then you’ll want to pick your choice of 7 healthy dietary plans. Once you’ve entered your delivery address you’ll be directed to payment. Deliveries will be made to your selected address from Monday to Friday (you can select the day that suits you) and between 8am-9pm. The last step is to put your feet up and wait for your pre-portioned box to arrive with absolutely everything you need to produce delicious meals.

On each meal plan the recipes are varied so you’ll never get bored of a certain dish.
