Finding the Perfect Meal Service

What are you looking for in a meal service?  What factors decide whether a service is a great deal or not?

What's a good deal to you?  I realized that what would be a good deal to me might not be to another.  Our family has no allergies or dietary restrictions, however, we are a very busy family.  My husband and I both work full-time and have a "side business".  Our son is very busy with school, sports, and various clubs. We are so busy that at the end of the day it's often easier to just pick up something on the way home.  My sister suggested trying a meal service as a convenient way to eat healthier and have more family time.

When I compared meal services I looked at the price, the menu, and the plan flexibility.  

The Price

  • Is the plan worth the cost? 

The Menu

  • Will we like the food?
  • Is there enough variety?
  • How healthy are the meals?
  • Are the meals quick and easy?
  • Are the serving sizes sufficient?

The Plan 

  • Is there a contract?
  • Can I cancel or put the plan on hold?

The more I looked into things I realized that for other people there are many other considerations.  Also, I discovered that some companies offered things that I hadn't even considered.  So here are some other things to consider:

  • Does this plan meet my dietary restrictions?
  • Will this plan help me meet my nutritional goals?
  • Is is organic, non-GMO, USDA-certified, Kosher...?
  • Does it offer vegetarian, vegan, Paleo, portion control, low-fat... options?

I realized that I wouldn't be able to just Google "best meal service" and sign-up.  This is going to take time.  My plan is to sign-up for 1 or 2 weeks worth of meals, review it and then try another plan until I can find the perfect one for me.  Maybe I can help you find the perfect one for your family!

Review for:

Let me know if there's a meal service you'd like reviewed.  There are so many meal services that it can get overwhelming!  There are meal services catering to specific diets and dietary needs.  There are meal services that offer precooked, semi-pre-cooked, only soups & smoothies, every meal for every day, and more!
