If you have ever browsed the Green Chef menu, you probably instantly noticed two of its main features, one of them good and the other not so good. Namely, Green Chef offers 2 meal plans – one designed for 2 people and one for a family of 4 – and an impressive number of meal programs for various diets – 7 to be exact. This is not at all common among meal delivery services nowadays and we applaud Green Chef for investing major efforts into making its recipe boxes suitable for home chefs with all kinds of dietary preferences.
Now, the not-so-good part. No matter which program you choose, the weekly menu includes just as many recipes as you can order – 3 if you opt for a program included in the 2-Person plan and 2 if you opt for a program included in the Family plan. Thus, you cannot choose your own meals, but you can, however, skip a week if you do not like what is on the menu.
Now that we have covered the basics, let us take a look at all the different menus Green Chef meal delivery service offers.
Something For Everyone
The 7 meal programs you can choose from include Omnivore, Carnivore, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Vegetarian, Paleo, and Keto. All of these programs are available with the 2-Person plan. The Family plan allows you to choose between the Omnivore and Carnivore programs. Now, it is time to focus on each of these programs and their respective weekly menus individually.
Just like the name suggests, this menu is designed for foodies who love all kinds of food, as long as it is good. The meals feature meats of all sorts, from light and juicy chicken to rich red meat, as well as high-quality fish and seafood and plenty of healthy produce and grains.
For home chefs who like extra proteins in their meals, Green Chef has designed the Carnivore menu. The recipes on this menu frequently overlap with the ones on the Omnivore menu. The main difference is in the fact that Carnivore recipes always primarily focus on meat and protein-rich fish like tuna while meat is not the star of the dish every single time with the Omnivore plan.
This is one of the 3 certified gluten-free menus Green Chef offers and the only one particularly designed for people who want or need to avoid gluten. The recipes are just as creative as the ones available on the previously described menus and they are perfectly balanced, with plenty of nutrient-packed veggies, delicious meats, and various seafood.
The Vegan menu is always colorful and frequently features gorgeous dishes from various European and Asian cuisines. Since Green Chef is a USDA organic certified company, you can expect to get all the best and most flavorful produce, which means that all the meals you cook are sure to be amazingly healthy and wonderfully delicious.
The recipes on the Vegetarian menu are particularly creative and include all kinds of meat-free wonders, from Japanese cabbage pancakes to the hearty black-eyed pea stew. If you are craving for a fresh dose of culinary inspiration, be sure to give this menu a try, even if you are only a part-time vegetarian.
The Paleo menu is designed in complete accordance with the rules of the Paleo diet. That means that it focuses on animal proteins and fresh, healthy produce. Heavily processed foods are nowhere in sight and the same goes for dried legumes, dairy, and notorious grains. All recipes are certified gluten-free.
This keto-friendly menu is the newest addition to Green Chef’s offer and it is one of its certified gluten-free menus. The recipes are low in carbs and free from dairy. They mostly focus on nutritious leafy greens and meat and fish rich in protein, with a sprinkling of healthy nuts like cashews and pine nuts.
As you can see, whichever menu you choose, you are in for a treat. The recipes are quick and simple, yet surprisingly creative. Most importantly, everything is perfectly healthy and delicious, so you can enjoy great flavors without adding inches to your waistline.
