    Best for Families: One Potato

    One Potato

     One Potato

    Getting kids to eat organic can be tricky, but luckily, One Potato makes mealtime a breeze. Plus, they offer special pricing for children’s servings (half of an adult serving), making it a win for families. The company strives to deliver delicious food that the entire family wants to eat — and not kid’s meals for grownups, or grownup food that kids have no interest in eating.

    Seasonal, farm-fresh options, such as spinach ricotta gnocchi and chicken paillard rotate on a weekly basis to shake things up, but there’s an ongoing picky eater menu with staples such as tacos, burgers and pan roast chicken as a foolproof dinner backup. Omnivore, vegetarian, gluten-free, and nut-free meals are also available. 

    Ingredients arrive pre-chopped and pre-measured in recyclable, insulated boxes, with recipe cards included for easy direction to ensure more time is spent with family at the table vs. shopping and prepping.

    Availability: Select states, currently including Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington (certain zip codes excluded), along with several zip codes in Montana and New Mexico; check the website to verify zip code.

    Pricing: Starting at $12.95 per serving; Customers can pause or skip at any time.

    For On-the-Go Lifestyles: Daily Harvest

    Daily Harvest

    Daily Harvest

    A company built on giving customers a healthy dose of organic fruits and vegetables, Daily Harvest is one of the best options for those with busy, on-the-go lifestyles. Never sacrifice taste, no matter how busy you are. Farm-frozen ingredients, including both sweet and savory options, arrive at your doorstep nearly ready to consume — and offer an instant energy pick-me-up. 

    Whether breakfast, lunch or dinner, there’s no shortage of tasty options. From tomato and bell pepper gazpacho (chilled soup) in the summer months and warm cauliflower and leek soup in the fall, endless options for bowls and smoothies, and even nutrition-packed lattes (like Chaga and chocolate), eating organic will never become stale. Simply choose from 9, 12 or 24 cups delivered weekly or monthly, and the rest is a breeze. 

    Filters give customers the ability to really pick and choose recipes that work for their dietary needs or personal likes and dislikes when it comes to ingredients. Taking it a step further, Daily Harvest also created results-oriented filers such as beautifying, energizing, and workout recovery to help cater to specific needs. Items are delivered frozen and the most work you’ll have to worry about is flipping on the blender switch — no chopping necessary. And no second-guessing mediocre produce from the market, as its as fresh and organic as it gets. 

    Availability: Delivery is available to 95 percent of the United States (check online with zip code to confirm); customers may cancel at any time.

    Pricing: Starting at $7.75 a cup for a weekly subscription of 9 cups; you may skip or pause at any time.

    Healthy Chef Creations

    Most associate organic with bland and boring, but thanks to chef-driven meal delivery brands like Healthy Chef Creations, that’s a thing of the past. Whether breakfast, lunch or dinner, they offer plans that help support a healthy lifestyle, and most importantly, that taste good. The program was developed by chef John Proccaci, with an emphasis on providing healthy, organic meals to everyone.

Items such as seafood paella with chorizo, roasted Greek vegetables over orzo and chicken parmesan are available and come in oven/microwave safe and BPA-free containers. The company saves you time by taking the grocery store, prepping, cooking and cleanup out of the equation — all you need to do is heat and eat. 

    There’s an entire tab for weight loss, including the Mediterranean weight loss diet (including lots of olive oil and Mediterranean-inspired dishes), a low carb diet and HCG diet, where meals are developed with specific dietary needs in mind. It’s essentially like having a nutritionist on call. If no plans online are appealing, the brand will also work on custom plans to fit all your needs. 

    Availability: Nationwide, although certain areas (parts of Alaska and Hawaii) may require additional delivery charges.

    Pricing: Starting at $11.99 per serving for breakfast and upwards of $16.99 for dinner; diet plans are slightly more expensive, with the Mediterranean weight loss plan starting at $17.66 per meal.

    Most Wallet-Friendly: EveryPlate

    Every Plate

    Every Plate

    Meal delivery kits can get spendy, depending on frequency. Starting at just $4.99 a serving, EveryPlate strives to keep meals affordable but also wholesome, hearty and organic, and most importantly, super easy to assemble. 

    Each delivery comes equipped with easy-to-master recipe cards and includes two to four recipes, depending on the subscription. While recipes are more simplified and don’t cater to those with food intolerances or lifestyle preferences, recipes rotate on a weekly basis and will do the trick of putting good food on the table. Harissa roasted chickpea bowls, carne asada fajitas, and caramelized onion burgers are a few meals to look forward to. There’s also a premium upgrade of $3 a meal to get items like herbed butter steak. 

    Price aside, an organized box of ingredients and easy recipes that can be executed in 30 minutes or less, from start to finish, are a real draw to this service. It really is that easy (and affordable) to create a standout meal with EveryPlate.
