What’s Unique About Green Chef?

Green Chef is your one-stop shop for organic, non-GMO, chef-inspired recipes that use sustainable ingredients. 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 multiple meal plans to accommodate different dietary preferences, Green Chef puts the fun back into following a truly green lifestyle by making healthy eating 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.

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 preferred dietary plan. 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.

Meal Options

Green Chef offers 3 distinct dietary plans: Carb-Conscious, Balanced Living, and Plant-Powered. The Carb-Conscious plan features all keto and paleo meals, while the Plant-Powered plan is a mixture of veggie and vegan dishes. The Balanced Living plan is a combination that offers a variety of what Green Chef has to offer, and may be most appealing to those without strict dietary restrictions.

On each meal plan the recipes are varied so you’ll never get bored of a certain dish. With Green Chef, you can’t choose specific recipes, only meal plans, which may be disappointing for some customers, but it does keep your palate surprised and refreshed. You’ll receive a different menu weekly and every box you receive has color-coded recipe cards so you won’t get confused.

If you want to contact Green Chef directly you can either email, (you’ll get a response within 24 hours) or call the hotline (Monday-Friday from 7am-7pm).

Bottom Line

If you’re committed to following a specific dietary lifestyle, Green Chef is your strongest contestant. With high-restaurant quality ingredients, combined with original and refreshing recipes, you definitely won’t get bored with your meals. What’s nice about Green Chef is that you’re still cooking home cooked dishes—so it doesn’t feel like you’re getting ready-made meals. It’s just a really simple way of saving time in the kitchen and money from your pocket—not to mention following a truly healthy, and green lifestyle.

I really enjoyed the food and everything was high quality. It was a little overwhelming though to get so much food at once. I wasn't sure where to put it all.
