When we first signed up, we had to choose between a two-serving plan that ships three or four meals every week and a four-serving plan that ships two or three meals a week. As the company states, it are often great for a small household of meal-preppers who want to stock their fridge with meals for the week.
The two-serving plan costs around $12 per serving, shipping included, and offers a variety of eight meals per week. The four-serving plan costs about $10, and you’ll choose between four meal options. You can see what’s on the menu up to four weeks ahead and skip the weeks that don’t have dishes you would like .
Meals include a variety of fresh, high quality ingredients, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, herbs, spices, and sauces. Salt, pepper, and vegetable oil may not be included with your order. Nut milk, beans, tofu, tempeh and other non-produce items are organic.
Prioritizing on fruits and vegetables that are organic and free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), these options are sometimes limited by shipping constraints and availability.
