Good for: The multitasker who wants meal kits and groceries in the same order
The details: With Hungryroot, you can customize your weekly delivery to include any recipe mix (including all the ingredients you’ll need), groceries, and snacks. Meals use organic, high-quality ingredients, and recipes can be tailored to your exact specifications. For example, let’s say BBQ grass-fed sloppy Joes catches your eye, but you don’t eat red meat: you can select the recipe and replace the organic grass-fed ground beef with a meatless alternative like Beyond Meat (or ground turkey, or chicken).
Hungryroot helps you customize your overall plan by asking about your dietary goals and dietary needs, and even has you fill out a flavor profile to help it suggest options that suit your tastes. You can choose between breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
Special dietary options: Vegan, Vegetarian, Pescatarian, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Nut-Free, Peanut-Free, Egg-Free, and/or Shellfish-Free.
Examples of meals: Cold noodles with zucchini and peanuts; Black Bean Brownies; maple chia cherry oatmeal.

Customer reviews: Everything arrived neatly packaged, with a single sheet containing the simple recipes I had selected for the week. Each meal took five to 20 minutes to prepare, and I was so happy with the quality of the ingredients, the deliciousness of the meals, and the simplicity of the recipes. My favorites were the green chili and cheese chicken enchiladas, the classic Italian stuffed red peppers, and the spinach and artichoke turkey wraps. —Exit
