Green Chef caters to those looking to try the latest diet trends such as keto, paleo, and pescatarian. You select the meal plan and Green Chef delivers the ingredients to your door. Each recipe takes about 30 minutes to make and includes step-by-step instructions on how to cook your meal.


The Good

  • Certified USDA Organic Company
  • 5 Meal Plan Options
  • The #1 Sustainable Meal Kit
  • Sustainability Partners

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. The company works closely with farmers and food manufacturers who are working to keep their foods clean.

5 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

The #1 Sustainable Meal Kit

Green Chef prides itself on being the number one sustainable meal kit. The company is dedicated to minimizing its environmental impact while at the same time providing people with delicious home-cooked meals. The company claims that its meals produce less waste than traditional grocery store meals (since there is no guessing the ingredients and how much you need) and offers 100 percent recyclable packaging. 

Sustainability Partners

Green Chef is partnered with several leading sustainability organizations. The company states that these partnerships ensure that Green Chef is meeting and maintaining the highest standards in the sustainable meal kit production. The company partners with the following:

  • Terrapass
  • Plastic Bank
  • TemperPack
  • USDA Organic
  • Monterey Bay Aquarium: Seafood Watch
  • Sustainable Packaging Coalition

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. Fortunately, 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 requires some experience in the kitchen (so be prepared to chop, cut, and dice), but overall the recipes are pretty simple. We also like the variety of meal plans for those on a specific diet. It doesn’t matter if you’re on the keto diet, paleo diet, or vegetarian or vegan, Green Chef has plenty of unique and delicious meals.

Additionally, Green Chef’s prices are fairly reasonable (it’s not the cheapest option but also not the most expensive), but you’ll need to consider the price of the meals and the shipping costs. Overall, we recommend that consumers look into Green Chef’s services.

I love Green Chef! The price is very fair for organic produce and the meals are tasty and very easy to prepare in 30 minutes or less. Sauces are made for you which really cuts down on cooking time and I’ve never had a meal I didn’t like. Delivery has always been on time even during a pandemic and I live in an apartment with no package receiving. Customer service is fast and top notch - they’re always willing to help.

I tried the Caribbean Shrimp & Coconut Rice. My son had ordered the Balanced Living Meal Plan dish and was then called out of town unexpectedly. This was my first experience with a meal delivery service and i was impressed. This dish was very easy to assemble and offered fresh ingredients in just the right portions. My meal was very tasty. Additionally, the leftover heated up nicely for lunch the next day.
