POV: You’re searching for a meal subscription that prioritizes the use of organic ingredients and are stuck between choosing Green Chef or Sunbasket.

You want the most cost-effective plan ... Green Chef

If you're ordering three meals per week for two people, Green Chef's plans range from $6-$6.50 per serving, whereas Sunbasket costs $6.82 per serving. However, if you increase your order size to be customized for four people for four meals per week, Green Chef only costs between $5.25 and $5.75 per serving vs. $8.99 per serving for Sunbasket which makes a big difference for large families who are looking to save the most money while receiving a similar product.

If you want the most customization possible for dietary preferences/restrictions ... Sunbasket 

While Green Chef does allow its customers to select from plans that include options like paleo, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free, Sunbasket goes the extra mile to include all of these options plus gives customers the ability to easily filter out other allergens like dairy, soy, grains, fish, and shellfish. Customers can also choose meals by protein, fiber, carb, calorie, sugar, and sodium content.

If you're on keto ... Green Chef

Despite offering paleo options, Sunbasket does not offer any meals that are classified as keto, while Green Chef offers 10 or more keto options each week as a part of its rotating menu. In fact, several of its meals contain 15 grams of carbs or fewer per serving.

If you want to abide by strict animal welfare standards ... Sunbasket

Although Green Chef supports local farmland, family farms, and craft economies, it does not provide as much insight into its animal welfare practices and standards as Sunbasket does. Here are a few examples of Sunbasket's standards:

  • 99% of its eggs are organic and come from chickens that roam freely
  • 100% of its seafood is sustainably raised or wild-caught
  • 100% of Sunbasket beef is humanely raised in pastures and grass-fed

If you want to choose from the most options for meals ... Green Chef

Sunbasket offers around 17-20 options for meal kit recipes, whereas Green Chef has 30 or more options available for recipes. Green Chef's Keto + Paleo selection has 10 options per week, its Plant-Powered meals come with nine different recipes to choose from, and there are an additional 8-10 other recipes you can select from under its Balanced Living meals.

If you're searching for special discounts ... Green Chef

Green Chef offers discounts for first responders, medical providers, nurses, teachers, as well as military members, and veterans. New customers will save 50 percent on their first box as well as receive free shipping, and a 15 percent discount will be applied towards the second box and all additional boxes for one year (51 boxes maximum).

Ultimate Winner: Green Chef

Green Chef is an absolutely amazing choice for those who want an organic meal subscription but also want the most bang for their buck. Green Chef not only offers the most cost-effective plan, but it also offers special discounts for those who serve, has the most recipes to choose from, and can accommodate a keto diet.
