If you are too busy to grocery shop, but still want to cook a healthy meal for the family, have you considered trying a home delivery service? There are a number of companies that will put the ingredients together for you and include the recipe to create a healthy meal. On this page I compare Blue Apron, Plated, and Hello Fresh. All three offer the same type of service, and all ship within the United States only.
This page is written as much for myself as for the reader, because I find the concept appealing. In this super fast-paced world, grocery shopping is an unappealing task. Between finding a good store to purchase quality fish, meat and produce, then driving there and back, unpacking, freezing, storing and organizing the food, shopping is a giant chore.
My first thought is that having a food delivery service would be too expensive to use. So I want to find out the cost, the quality of ingredients, and the products available. Is this a feasible idea for a family or a single person or both?
On this page I'll compare three services that basically supply the groceries needed to cook the meals. The upside is there is no meal planning or shopping, but cooking is required.
