Our Favorite Organic Meal Kit Companies

Organic Meal Kit Companies are more popular than ever. They provide healthy meal options, fresh ingredients and detailed instructions on how to prepare the meals. They are the perfect alternative to not-so-healthy fast food and casual dining options. Plus, they save you time and energy.

Here are a few of our favorite Organic Meal Kit Companies:

  1. Trifecta

Trifecta is the perfect answer for environmentally conscious consumers with a variety of dietary interests, needs, and concerns. Trifecta’s meals are not only made with sustainable ingredients and practices, but they are also 100% organic.

Trifecta allows you to choose from 4 meal plans:

  • Classic Meals – Fully cooked meals that come with classic proportions of 4 ounces of meats or fish; 4 ounces of carbohydrates; and 4 ounces of vegetables.
  • Clean Eating – Minimally processed foods focusing on whole grains, vegetables, and lean proteins as close to their natural state as possible.
  • Paleo – Sugar and grain free meals, prepared with organic fruits and vegetables and sustainable meats.
  • Vegan – A plant-based diet that abstains from animals and animal byproducts.

Meals from Trifecta will stay fresh, in your refrigerator, for up to 2 weeks, and you may freeze them for up to 6 months. Trifecta’s meals are fully prepared by gourmet chefs from some of the country’s top restaurants. They are made completely from scratch, and the menu changes frequently.

If you are interested in adopting a healthier lifestyle, this is a fantastic and easy way to plan healthy meals.

  1. Blue Apron

While Blue Apron doesn’t offer exclusively organic ingredients, they do provide locally grown and sustainable ingredients – many of which are USDA certified organic.  All of Blue Apron ingredients are also non-GMO ingredients. They believe following this model helps provide families with fresh, seasonal ingredients, grown locally (to reduce emissions in transportation and delivery), at any time of the year.

Blue Apron sources hard-to-find ingredients for you, enabling you to cook inventive meals with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Each meal comes with step-by-step instructions, including photos and videos, and the kitchen utensils you will need to get the job done.

  1. Green Chef

The philosophy at Green Chef is that eating organic makes a difference. All of their meals contain at least 90% USDA certified organic ingredients and they are non-GMO, sustainable and traceable. The wonderful thing about ordering from Green Chef is that they’ve done most of the prep work for you. It’s like having your own sous chef to handle the chopping, sauce making, ingredient gathering, etc.

Hello Fresh provides customers with fresh, healthy, high-quality ingredients, from local suppliers and family farms (to reduce emissions in transportation and delivery).
