Green Chef Menu Options
Green Chef is a good option for those seeking bright, bold flavors and products derived from environmentally conscientious practices. You can be sure your food is USDA certified organic, but you will pay more for it than your typical meal delivery service.
You can easily choose a meal plan option that is guaranteed to be free of certain food allergies such as gluten, dairy, grain, or soy. Each meal plan is developed to support your lifestyle.
Green Chef will have you first choose a meal plan of either keto, paleo, balanced living, or plant-powered diets. You then choose your kits from 2-4 meals within your plan that can all be cooked in under 30 minutes.
Green Chef has portion sizes of either 2 or 4 people per meal, with the option of either 2 to 4 recipes a week. Your meal options will be determined based on the meal plan you choose that best fits your lifestyle and eating habits.
We found Green Chef to have excellent, fresh ingredients with great taste. All of their products are USDA certified organic and non-gmo, which is difficult to find in meal delivery services.
Green Chef partners with organizations such as Plastic Bank, USDA Organic, and the Sustainable Packaging Coalition to make sure your food is sourced safely and packaged well to promote freshness.
Green Chef includes on their recipes what you will come in the box, as well as what you will need to gather from home to complete the meal. They also make sure to mention what kitchenware and gadgets you will need so you can be prepared to make your meal.
Meal Prep & Taste
We ordered three meals displayed above and loved all of them! Each meal was a new flavor and concept we had never tried before, and the food was delicious. The Red Miso Steak Stir Fry was by far our favorite meal. The flavors of each ingredient were perfect when combined and we ate every bite.
The Italian Breaded Porkchop dirtied the most dishes but still turned out to be a pretty yummy meal. This meal was more classic and comforting.
Lemon Herb Shrimp and Orzo was our third meal and was packed full of bright, fresh flavors. This meal was pretty healthy, and the shrimp was of good quality.
Green Chef Prices
Green chef prices are determined when you choose the plan that fits your lifestyle. Paleo and Keto plans are only a dollar more than balanced living and plant-powered plans.
The average price fluctuates around $11-13 based on the plan you choose, which is about $1-$3 more per serving, but you’re getting all organic produce.

Green Chef offers meal servings for either 2 people or 4 people. Shipping is free for the first box you order, then becomes a flat rate of $7.99 per box for further ordering.
Packaging & Recycling
Green Chef had a small amount of plastic packaging, and typically spices, sauces, or prechopped veggies were the items we found packaged in plastic. Green Chef offers recyclable packaging and is very informative on where and how to recycle on their website.
All their packaging had clear labels that included specific allergens. Their ingredients are also color-coded per recipe so you can easily stay organized.
We were definitely pleased with Green Chef customer service. They make it easy to skip a week, pause your account, and cancel your purchase of meals.
You can cancel your account by logging in and going to your account information in the drop-down box. You can also pause or skip a week on your plan by going to “your plan” in the drop-down box and then to “edit subscription”.
Green Chef was extremely helpful and immediately refunded a purchase we made by accident. Their customer service is excellent!
