4 meal delivery kits that make healthy eating easier

If figuring out what to make for dinner each night stresses you out more than going to work in the morning, meal delivery kits can seem like a total godsend. For a fee, subscribers receive a single recipe and all the ingredients needed to prepare it in an insulated box, rendering mealtime a no-brainer for those who’d rather order food than cook it.

These kits are a great way out of meal ruts. “I made a few items I wouldn’t have thought of making,” says Kerrie Lynch, from Brooklyn, NY. “It’s great for when you don’t want to think or shop, or when you get back from vacation.”

For some, these kits can be cost prohibitive. Julie Taylor of Glendale, CA recently put her meal kit subscription on hold because, at $72 per week for 3 meals for 2 (plus $6 shipping), she felt the indulgence was getting rather expensive. However, if the price were more palatable, Taylor says she would start ordering them again. “If money were no object, I would still totally do it for convenience sake,” she said.
