At a Glance

Green Chef offers customers a fully organic and healthy menu with specialised dietary options; keto, paleo and more, with a great meal variety. 

Quick Introduction to Company:

Green Chef is a company that specializes in providing a broad range of options for those who have special dietary or lifestyle requirements.

Green Chef is a meal kit service company that is focused on delivering tempting, organic, healthy and vibrant food to your table. Because of their focus they have one of the most extensive meal kit menus available in America.

Their menu choices include selections that are suitable for a paleo, vegan, keto, omnivore, carnivore, vegetarian and gluten-free diet. Anybody who follows a special diet will understand full well the challenges you can face when trying to create menus for you and your family that follow sometimes strict guidelines.  So, to find a company that not only does this, but also ensures your meals are incredibly tasty and appealing as well, can be incredibly convenient. It certainly takes the stress out of planning your weekly meals.

Green Chef is unique in the meal kit industry in the States for two very special reasons: 

Firstly, they have worked in conjunction with the USDA to become the first certified organic meal kit company in America. Secondly, they were also the first company to receive a gluten-free certification through the Gluten Intolerance Group’s GFFS program.   

For those of you who require gluten-free food, you will be delighted to find that Green Chef provides three fully certified gluten-free menus.

These are two incredible distinctions and obviously, because of this, all their menu options include ingredients that are 100% organic.  Some might think that because of this, their meals might be difficult to prepare. Nothing could be further from the truth, as Green Chef has also made the fact that they love meals that are easy to prepare, a final company focus.

Green Chef is not only about healthy, delicious and organic meals, they are also about convenience. All their incredible dinners can be fully prepared and on the table within 30 minutes.

Like their name, the company is also a big believer in being green, and by choosing Green Chef you are choosing one of the eco-friendliest options available. Their packaging is primarily recyclable, reusable or compostable!

Green Chef meal kits are not only good for you, but they are also good for our planet!

If your priority is organic, healthy and modern food that is exciting and tastes great, then Green Chef is for you.   It is a wonderful alternative for anyone who follows a specific diet as mentioned above. It is also great for busy people, with their 30-minute meal preparation promise, and with their eco-friendly focus, good for the planet.

There are two different types of plans offered by Green Chef:

  • Two-person plan with three meals per week (total of six servings)
  • Four-person family plan with two meals per week (total of eight servings)

With Green Chef, you also have the flexibility to change plans from week to week.

Menu selection:

Green Chef offers an impressive selection of meals on a weekly basis.  These menu options are spread over seven menus for different lifestyles. These menu options include paleo, vegan, keto, omnivore, carnivore, vegetarian and gluten-free.

Each plan includes three tempting and delicious meals every week. The carnivore and omnivore menus are also offered as part of the Family Plan.

It really is hard to beat both the style and convenience that is offered by the Green Chef service.

All their ingredients are beautifully fresh, pre-measured and usually pre-cut for you. Their recipes are designed and created by professional chefs and one of the highlights of the Green Chef meal kits is that they include incredible house-made sauces, dressings, and spice-blends.   

Part of the attraction of Green Chef is also that their recipes are fast, always easy and lots of fun to cook at home.

The delivery:

Receiving a Green Chef delivery is always a pleasure.  The organization is second to none and your ingredients arrive beautifully packed and organized.   Proteins are packed at the bottom of the box and are surrounded by enough ice to ensure the correct temperature is maintained.  Then the ingredients of each meal kit are usually pre-cut and always labeled which means that unpacking the box requires no sorting by you.   It is just a matter of unpacking the meal kit ingredients and storing them until you are ready to use them.

Quality of ingredients:

Due to the USDA certification that Green Chef has, all their ingredients are organic and sustainably sourced. They are without fail, of the highest quality and many of them have already been prepared for you.


Our team found the whole ordering process via the Green Chef website very easy to complete.  Although they do not have an app as their website is mobile optimized, you can do everything you need to do, to manage your account via the Green Chef website. 

We also made some changes to our order and it was very simple to do. The whole process including registering, selecting your plan, changing your payment method and even cancelling your account can all be accomplished online, in a very user-friendly way.  You will also be able to access additional information on each dish via their website which includes a list of ingredients, nutritional facts and cooking processes, which is both informative and convenient.

Green Chef Ingredients


Our experience with Green Chef has made us conclude that it offers one of the healthiest meal kit options on the market.  Not only are their meals healthy and organic but they also taste great and are incredibly easy to prepare. They are experts at catering for the many specialty diets that now exist. We love the fact that most ingredients are portioned and cut for you and the spices and sauces are already prepared.

Green Chef provides a convenient, healthy and delicious option.

Green Chef FAQ: 

Green Chef delivers meal kits to your front door weekly. Your Green chef subscription continues until you decide to make changes or cancel your membership. 

Ingredients are organic and fresh, so Green Chef claims that the food arrives sooner to your home than it would if it came from a grocery store. Green Chef has air-tight and safe eco- friendly packaging that keeps it all fresh until it reaches your home. If you keep the appropriate ingredients in the fridge, then your food can last up to five days after delivery. 

Seafood is different. You should prepare and eat your seafood meals within three days of arrival. 

Green Chef is an excellent way to save time on grocery shopping and cooking. With a subscription, you get weekly meal kits delivered to your home. In the Green Chef boxes, you get fresh, organic, pre-measured ingredients. You also receive easy-to-follow recipes. 

To get started, create an account through Green Chef. Select your meal preferences, including dietary restrictions – like Keto, vegetarian, and more –  and serving sizes. Then, pick a day for your pre-prepared meal kit to be delivered. 

When the Green Chef box arrives, all you must do is follow the recipes with the pre-cut and prepared ingredients. You can feel like an expert chef without cooking classes or even a trip to the grocery store. 

Green Chef makes it easy to skip a delivery week. Go to your online Green Chef account and select “Your Plan.” Find the week you want to skip and click on “Edit Order.” From there, choose “Skip Order” and confirm the action when the pop-up appears. 

Of course, you do not get charged for weeks that you plan to skip. We recommend confirming the skip at least one week in advance to your delivery date. You can skip for up to five weeks of food at a time. 

If you change your mind, you can un-skip by completing the same process stated above. However, you must do so one week before the delivery day at 11:59 pm ET. Otherwise, your order cannot get processed and shipped on time. For example, if you have a Green Chef delivery scheduled for Monday, then you must make the edits the Monday prior by 11:59 pm ET.

You can skip your order at any time if it is not within one week of delivery. If you decide to cancel when your food is getting processed and shipped, then Green Chef cannot stop the delivery. If it is more than a week away from delivery, then you are free to cancel. 

To cancel your subscription, log into your account. Click on your name, which appears in the top right-hand corner of the page, and scroll down to “Account Info.” Click “Cancel Subscription,” follow the directions, and provide feedback if necessary.
