In this Green Chef review we’re going to give you everything you need to know about this company before you get signed up. We’re going to talk about the quality of the food and what it really costs in both time and money to get your first meal sent out and on the table.

The truth is that there are a TON of these food prep companies on the market and we wanted to find something that was healthy, convenient, fair priced, and helped us avoid ever stepping into the Safeway up the street. That place is the worst!

By the time you are done cooking your food from Green Chef you’d still be waiting in line at our Safeway to purchase your ingredients still!

What Green Chef Is All About..

Alright, so it’s another food prep service.. right?green-chef-coupon

Well, yes you could say that but this one comes with a twist.

First off, all the food is organic which is something that isn’t offered by many companies.

How Does Green Chef Work?

Green Chef is a a meal prep service that you pre-order to be delivered to your front door. When you sign-up you choose the type of meal you prefer such as vegetarian, omnivore or vegan.

Next you choose the weeks you would like to have service setup for. If you do not want a order an a specific week then you are able to easily “skip” that week of delivery service and of course you will not be charged.

Starting your account and placing your first order for service is easy with Green Chef and you are able to have your first order in about two weeks or less.

How Does the Green Chef Order Arrive?

green-chef-boxYour Green Chef order will arrive with all the ingredients and recipes needed to create your meals packaged inside one box.

Inside the box there are food safe freezer packs to protect all the items inside and ours was still very cold after a full day of shipping and sitting out on our porch.

Everything used to package your items is fully recyclable. Being the crazy green-chef-packagingrecycle person that I am, I REALLY appreciated this factor!

Also, all the ingredients are clearly labeled and color coded to which recipe they belong to which was a big help.

Everything arrived safely and all items were fresh and not damaged at all.

Pros –

  • The flavor explosion level was off the hook! Your mouth will be poppin in places you didn’t know you even had taste buds.
  • The recipes were easy to follow and only required basic cooking skills
  • Unique ingredients that tasted great! (A parsnip was used in our mashed potatoes! When we first saw the vegetable we had no idea how it was going to be used!)
  • Different sized meal plans – Either meals for two or family sized which is meals for four
  • All organic ingredients
  • Clearly labeled ingredients and separately packaged
  • Many diets can be accommodated – vegan, vegetarian, carnivore, omnivore, paleo and gluten-free
  • All ingredients were packaged really well and were fresh upon arrival
  • All packaging and shipping material is fully recyclable! Even the freezer packs!

Cons –

  • Took 2 weeks to get up and running
  • Required our own supply of olive oil for all three recipes we received
  • You are not able to select specific recipes that you would like delivered –  just the meal type like vegetarian or omnivore

You could be in the kitchen cooking like a chef within the next week impressing your wife with your cooking skills or showing your man that you can cook more than just a couple meals every month.

OUR Experience with Green Chef

Below are reviews of the actual meals that we received and cooked from Green Chef!

Meal #1 -Salisbury Steak Meatloaf with Smashed Potato & Parsnip, Mushroom Gravy & Broccoli


Meal Type : Omnivore & Gluten-Free

Time Listed on Recipe to Prepare : 3o Minutes

Our Time Taken on Recipe to Prepare : 50 Minutes

Food Quality Rating : 10/10

Meal Taste Rating : 10/10

Difficulty to Prepare – Easy

Would We Eat Again – Yes, Definitely


This recipe was awesome! Every thing had great flavors coming through on our plates and tasted really well together.

The portions were also well sized too, we both had plenty to eat.

The whole recipe took us a little longer than they claimed, only by about 20 minutes, but was well worth it in the end.


We both would say that this recipe was at the beginner level to prepare.

It really didn’t require any fancy cooking skills to put together but honestly tasted like a famous chef was in our kitchen!

Meal #2 – Herbed Chicken with Stuffin’ Muffins, Carrots and Cranberry Pan Sauce

Meal Type : Omnivore

Time Listed on Recipe to Prepare : 45 Minutes

Our Time Taken on Recipe to Prepare : 55 Minutes

Food Quality Rating : 10/10

Meal Taste Rating : 10/10

Difficulty to Prepare – Easy

Would We Eat Again – Yes, for sure!

This meal was definitely like eating a healthy style Thanksgiving meal! Everything tasted really awesome! The chicken was easy to prepare and tasted really moist and was seasoned perfectly. We also really liked the “stuffin’ muffins”- such a creative recipe to re-purpose a kaiser roll.

Portions sized out great too! We were even able to plate this one out between 3 people as well.

All the flavors complemented each other like a mad scientist chef created the meal! We both agree that we would make this recipe again or even a couple of times.

Meal #3 – Fall Harvest Bowl with Kale, Walnuts, Barley, Roasted Veggies and Fresh Pear

Meal Type : Vegan

Time Listed on Recipe to Prepare : 30 Minutes

Our Time Taken on Recipe to Prepare : 45 Minutes

Food Quality Rating : 6/10

Meal Taste Rating : 4/10

Difficulty to Prepare – Easy

Would We Eat Again – No, not our style

This meal was way healthy just not our style. When you tasted everything on the fork together is tasted decent but separately nothing really had the “wow” flavor like the last two recipes.

We both had food left on our plates after this meal and ate food later in the evening to fill up.

Sadly, we would not order or plan to make this recipe again.
