Ever get overwhelmed by all the options at the grocery store and unsure of what to make for dinner? Us, too. Thankfully, Amazon is about to make mealtime a lot less stressful. Less than a month after purchasing Whole Foods, the company is jumping onboard the meal kit trend. With 17 branded meal kits and their fresh produce delivery service, we may never have to leave home again.
You’ve already been using your Prime account to get textbooks, clothes, and snacks delivered straight to your door, so why not order chicken tikka masala or a veggie quinoa bowl with riced chickpeas while you’re at it? Whether you’re cooking for a family or just yourself, the ring of your doorbell will signal the end of your time-consuming meal prep. Each of Amazon’s kits comes with all the makings for a delicious dinner and goes from box to table in just 30 minutes. They also come with complete nutrition guides and ingredient lists to guarantee each meal is fit for your fam.
But there’s a catch — these meal kits are only available to people who have an AmazonFresh subscription, which is a grocery delivery service for Amazon Prime members. And for the moment, they’re just being sold in select cities including New York and Seattle. While there are some vegetarian and organic options, there aren’t any special kits for those with gluten or dairy intolerances for the time being. So if you’re lucky enough to be in one of the chosen cities and you don’t have any food allergies, do us all a favor and try these out. At about $8-10 a meal — the two-serving meal kit costs $16-20 — buying a box won’t set you back any more than your favorites from Blue Apron or Hello Fresh.
If Amazon hasn’t made it to your area yet, breathe easy because we’ve figured out the Top Meal Delivery Service For Every Eating Plan for you to try in the meantime.
