Modify Health Menu

The menu at Modify Health is extensive. They offer about 25 Low FODMAP meals and 21 Mediterranean meals each week. And, they have 6 hearty breakfast meals offered each week. 

They feature inventive recipes and food combinations for some of the healthiest meals available in meal delivery.

One notable feature about ModifyHealth’s recipes is the amount of meat, fish, and proteins included in each meal. 

Sometimes healthy meal delivery services save money by loading up the dish with vegetables, and add a token amount of protein to satisfy a requirement, but not here. Modify Health makes quality chicken, steak, salmon, and other proteins the star of the plate with a nice combination of vegetables and grains to complete the meal. It’s a nice surprise!

They also offer a few vegetarian/vegan meals, and absolutely everything is gluten free, low-sodium, and diabetic-friendly.

I wish they had some healthy desserts. Some of us live for a sweet treat every now and again 🙂

Ingredient Quality

Because the meals from Modify Health are medically tailored, they pay special attention to the ingredients used. They add non-gmo and organic vegetables whenever possible, which are indicated on the label. 

They use grass-fed beef, sustainable seafood, and free range chicken and turkey. 

We would love to see exclusively organic ingredients used, but that would of course increase the price.

Taste

Modify Health makes good tasting healthy meals that everyone will enjoy. Some of their recipes use the same vinegary marinade or dressing, which I’m sure is a result of striving to create such healthy options that stay fresh.

Because they can’t use heavy creams and sauces, the meals taste lighter and less rich.

Packaging & Recycling

2021 - Huge Improvement

2020

You can see the improvements Modify Health has made in responsible, eco-friendly packaging in just the last year.

They’ve replaced lots of ice packs with ClimaCell liners made from plant-based renewable components, creating less waste. And, their Enviro ice packs are made from nitrogen based ingredients that can be used as plant food instead of wasteful disposal. Yes, you can actually pour the gel onto your indoor or outdoor plants! 

ModifyHealth vacuum seals each meal into their BPA free food grade plastic containers, allowing them to stay fresh up to 10 days! That’s so much nicer than having to freeze meals in order to finish out the week’s food.
