The Good

  • Certified USDA Organic Company
  • 5 Meal Plan Options
  • Eco-Friendly Packaging

Certified USDA Organic Company

Green Chef prides itself on being “...the first company in the category to be USDA-certified organic.” In addition to being USDA-certified organic, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are excluded from its ingredients as well as work closely with farmers and food manufacturers who are working to keep their foods clean.

Five Meal Plan Options

Green Chef offers five meal plans for a two-person family or a four-person family. Two or four family servings vary depending on the type of meal plan.

2-Person Plan
Meals start at $9.99 and include three dinners each serving two people. Each recipe takes about 30 minutes to cook.

  • Keto — low-carb, gluten-free meal options
  • Paleo — gluten, grain, dairy, and soy-free meal options
  • Omnivore — meal options include meat, seafood, or vegetarian dinners
  • Plant-Powered — plant only meals for vegetarians or vegans
  • Gluten-Free — gluten-free meals with options of meat, seafood, or vegetarian adjustments

Family Plan
Meals start at $10.99 including two dinners to serve a family of four. Recipes take around 30–45 minutes to cook.

  • Omnivore — meal options include meat, seafood, or vegetarian dinners for both parents and children
  • Carnivore — meat and seafood-based dinners served with veggies

Eco-Friendly Packaging

Each order is delivered in eco-friendly containers that can be reused or recycled. The types of materials in each box are cardboard, ClimaCell, ice packs, paper bags made of 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper, #4 plastic film bags and packets, paperboard boxes, and #5 plastic jars. Check with your local recycling facility to ensure that these materials can be recycled at that location.

The Bad

  • Subscription Auto-Renews
  • Some Cooking Skills Required

Subscription Auto-Renews

When trying out Green Chef, set a reminder to cancel your subscription in case you decide it is not for you. If you do not cancel your membership, you will continue to be charged with meals delivered to you every two weeks. Luckily, you can cancel anytime without penalty as long as it is seven days before your next order.

Some Cooking Skills Required

While Green Chef provides the ingredients and instructions on how to cook your meal, some “assembly” is required. The recipes are designed for beginners but consumers will still need to know how to dice, chop, and grate some ingredients.

The Bottom Line

Green Chef is a great starting option for those looking to add a few healthy meals to their diet. The program is not as “hands on” as some other diet plans we have reviewed but still offers quality recipes. There is a little more work that needs to be put in since they do not come pre-cooked. Nonetheless, you will receive high-quality, fresh meals with easy follow-along steps. For those looking for a more direct approach to losing weight, consider some of the other diet plans we have reviewed.

Great variety of organic and locally sourced ingredients. Meals are delicious however prices are a bit higher than competitors.
