HelloFresh Vs. Purple carrots: which lunch is best?
This plant-based food delivery service makes signing up a (vegan) pie. First, you’ll set up an account for your weekly meal kit subscription service and choose a recipe category. You can choose between high-protein meals that contain at least 20 grams of protein per serving, low-pot and pan meals, gluten-free, and “no-advantage” meals (a great choice if you’re into everything).
Next, you’ll choose the number of meals each week and whether you want two or four servings per meal. While portion sizes can’t be adjusted for households with an odd number of meals, we often plan ahead for what’s left over for the next day. At checkout, your cart is based on the number of dishes and portion size you selected.
During the first week of your subscription, Purple Carrot will recommend meals based on your preferences. From there, you can select dishes from a list of options. Each dish lists nutritional preferences such as gluten-free, soy-free, or high-protein. Cooking time and calories will also be displayed.
Featuring eight dinner recipes that change each week, as well as breakfast, lunch and snack options. On busy weeks, you can opt for ready-made or frozen meals instead of meal prep kits. Because Purple Carrot is a weekly subscription service, you pay weekly and you can pause or cancel your subscription at any time for free.
