Mailed food boxes are subscription services that periodically send you boxes containing either prepared meals or all the ingredients you need to cook a meal. Some offer the option of choosing in advance what you’d like included in the meal. You can also be sent packages containing a selection of healthy snacks which offer options of low calorie, vegan or gluten free munchies.
Blue Apron is one of the leaders in the field offering healthy gourmet meals prepared by a chef with all ingredients guaranteed to be fresh and artificial sugar and gluten free. Plated, a competitor, provides more diverse meal choices and includes dessert to differentiate itself from its more established cousin.
Food boxes mailed to your door are a popular option for people that would like to cook but don’t have the time to find recipes or do the required shopping.
