Top keto meal delivery services

With any meal service, take the time to review the nutrition information for each meal before you place it in your cart. Be sure that the carb count does not exceed your personal carb target.

Set your expectations for reheating food in a black plastic tray or similar container. A pre-made dinner can still taste delicious, but it may not have the texture, crunch, and visual appeal of a freshly cooked meal.

Plan ahead and understand each vendor’s delivery schedule. Some are flexible, while others only offer delivery on certain days of the week. Many need about a week to get your first order processed.


2. Keto meal kit services

Have you ever wondered if it would be fun to try a keto meal kit service? It’s a great way to expand your horizons and try new recipes. And it’s convenient — everything you need arrives at your door.

With meal kits, you do the cooking.

Here are three low-carb meal kit purveyors to consider:

Green Chef

Green Chef has been offering organic keto meal kits for years. The menu changes each week, with about half a dozen meals to choose from. Order for two or four and get cooking.

Order: select the keto menu
Price: about $13 per meal, depending on number ordered
Shipping: $8 per order
Minimum: 6 meals
Arrives: fresh ingredients and a recipe
Available: across the continental US (except parts of Louisiana)
Sourcing: organic

Home Chef

Although not quite keto, Home Chef offers a limited selection of low-carb meal kits. For some of their conventional dishes, you might be able to simply discard the rice to get carb counts down into the keto range.

Home Chef allows you to customize some recipes by swapping out one protein for another, and also offers some slow-cooker meals and entrée salads.

Order: select from the “carb conscious” menu
Price: starting at $7 per meal
Shipping: free if you spend over $49
Minimum: 4 meals
Arrives: fresh ingredients and a recipe
Available: 98% of US locations
Sourcing: conventional

Sun Basket

Sun Basket does not have a keto plan, but it does offer some organic, keto-friendly meals. Click through to view the carb count on promising looking “carb conscious,” “paleo” and “lean and clean” menu options. Sun Basket also offers several varieties of keto sous-vide egg bites, as well as prepared crab cakes, meat, and fish.

Order: “carb conscious,” “paleo,” and “lean and clean” options that meet your carb threshold
Price: $11-13 per meal, depending upon quantity ordered
Shipping: about $6 per order
Minimum: 4 meals
Arrives: fresh ingredients and a recipe
Available: across the continental US (except parts of Montana, New Mexico, and North Dakota)
Sourcing: organic

 

Before you purchase, check the nutrition information for each dish to ensure the carb count doesn’t exceed your personal target. This is especially important if you are choosing a “carb conscious” service rather than Green Chef’s keto offering.

How, exactly, do meal kits work? Most meal kit services have similar rules. When you sign up, you get to pick out the recipes that suit your taste, and select how many people you are ordering for.

Then, a box of ingredients will arrive (at an agreed upon time) with just the right amount of everything you need to make dinner. You provide a few basics:

  • butter
  • coconut oil, ghee or other cooking oil
  • olive oil
  • pepper
  • salt

Everything else is in the box.

You’ll get a step-by-step recipe card to follow, and most recipes can be prepared in about 30 minutes. Some are designed to be even quicker.

You’ll need a stove top, oven, and some kitchen equipment. These basics should do the trick:

  • aluminum foil
  • chef’s knife and paring knife
  • cooking spoon and spatula
  • cutting board
  • grater
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • peeler
  • pot
  • skillet
  • sheet pan
  • strainer
  • zester

The promise is a freshly cooked meal with great texture (like crunchy veggies). Plus, it’s a little more gourmet than everyday home cooking. There are often special sauces, garnishes, and other touches to make dinner more delicious and interesting.

What are the downsides? Cooking and clean-up time is pretty much like it is for conventional home-made fare. These meals are pricier, too. And, there’s a fair amount of extra packaging.

But, if you like to cook and try new recipes, keto meal kits can be a fun change of pace. They’re convenient, tasty, and ease some of the burden of planning and sourcing dinners. And they’re delivered to your door.

Bottom line

Whether you’re looking for ways to avoid cooking or ways to avoid the grocery store, keto meal delivery options can keep you fed and healthy.

With so many companies offering low-carb and keto dinners, we hope you’ll find the service you need to keep it keto and keep it delicious.
