Green Chef caters to anyone who wants to follow a well-balanced diet. Here is how it works:

You are asked to sign up with your email address and zip code. You could also choose to sign up using your Facebook account. Once that is done, you can move on to preferences. Here, you choose a meal plan that is right for you. Green Chef has a variety of meal plans that suit everyone’s lifestyle. You can choose from Keto, Paleo, Balanced Living, or Plant-Powered diet plans.

Features at a glance

  • Organic food
    Green Chef was the first company in the category to be USDA-certified organic. They feature different organic ingredients across their meal kits; however, not everything can be certified organic. Green Chef focuses on sourcing conventional options of the highest quality to people. They are particular about labeling, so there will be a stamp when a product is not certified organic.
  • Sustainable practices
    Green Chef ensures that they make sustainability a regular practice in their delivery service. They have partnered with Plastic Bank to offset their plastic footprint for every box. This has a significant impact on reducing plastic pollution in the oceans. They are also a part of the sustainable packaging coalition where they engage with industry-leading suppliers and innovators.
