It can be hard to come up with different keto-friendly meals everyday when cooking doesn’t come naturally to you — not to mention there’s not always time to shop for groceries when you have a busy schedule. Luckily, if you’re strapped on time — or ideas — you can always opt for a meal kit subscription box.
These services allow you to get meals tailored to your diet and delivered straight to your door. Some of these services will provide you with just the ingredients and recipes, so you can cook them yourself, while others provide ready-made dishes for an added time-saver.
There are many meal kit subscriptions on the market, but when you’re doing a special diet, you’ll want to find one that fits your dietary needs. Fortunately, many meal kit subscription boxes cater to diets like keto and Whole 30, giving you a number of options. Here are some of our favorites:
If you like to cook for yourself but are sick of wasting money on different ingredients you only use for one meal, Green Chef is a good choice for you. Choose your own meal plan depending on your taste and preferences, and they’ll send you the pre-measured and pre-prepped ingredients. Follow their step-by-step instructions to whip up a fresh meal, no waste or extra trips to the grocery store required. Green Chef has an entire keto menu to choose from, and menu items change weekly. Plus, their ingredients are organic and they don’t contain GMOs, toxic pesticides, irradiation, sewage sludge, antibiotics, growth hormones, or steroids.
Not everyone has the time to cook, and with Kettlebell Kitchen, you don’t have to. Each meal comes ready-prepared, and you can tailor your menu based on your health goals, such as whether you are looking for weight loss or to improve your athletic performance, etc. They have both Whole 30 and “Complete Keto” meal options, and you can pick your own meals, or you can opt to have one of their nutritionists choose for you. You can also rest easy knowing Kettlebell Kitchen uses quality ingredients: All of their beef is grass-fed, their poultry and pork is raised without hormones and antibiotics, and their fish is wild-caught.
Like Kettlebell Kitchen, Factor 75 meals come already prepared, which means you can relax after a long day and enjoy a from scratch meal without lifting a finger. Their keto and low-carb meals are always fresh and never frozen, so you don’t have to sacrifice taste for convenience. Depending on your needs, you can choose from between four and eighteen meals per week, and you can choose your own options or let Factor 75 randomize them based on your preferences.
With a name like Keto Fridge, you know you can’t go wrong with this meal kit subscription. They are the first, and only, fully prepared ketogenic meal delivery service, and each meal roughly follows the ratio of 75 percent fat, 20 percent protein, and 5 percent carbs. Options change weekly, so you never get bored, and the best part is, you don’t actually have to commit to a subscription to receive their meals. Instead, you just order from their list of keto-friendly meals, sides, snacks and even drinks whenever you need them. Their meals stay fresh for seven days, which gives you plenty of flexibility. You can also freeze them for up to two months, so nothing will go to waste if something comes up.
Although Sun Basket doesn’t offer keto-specific options, they do offer meals that can be keto and Whole-30 compliant. Like Green Chef, Sun Basket provides all the ingredients, and you do the cooking. Choose from their “Carb-Conscious” offerings and “Lean and Clean” menu for low-carb and low-calorie meals. With Sun Basket, you can choose from different menu sections, allowing you to pick meals that are best for you. They strive to source all their produce from organic providers, they only use wild-caught seafood, and they select antibiotic-and-hormone-free meat as well as organic eggs.
Using a meal kit subscription can help you enjoy fresh and healthy meals without the stress of trying to come up with them yourself. Depending on your schedule, you may want to choose a subscription that comes with meals already prepared, or if you enjoy the process of cooking, you can choose an option that sends you just the ingredients. Meal planning has never been easier!
