You should expect a good deal of packaging with each box, but Home Chef provides recycling tips.
Home Chef does offer vegetarian options, and sometimes their recipes will fit with vegan, paleo, or even keto plans—but not consistently.

''Home Chef is always my favorite meal box... I learn so many techniques from HC meal preparation.'' – Karol, from our May 2019 Review
Home Chef FAQ
Home Chef (starting at $9.95 per serving) is a meal kit delivery service that sends you the fresh ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes you need to make home-cooked meals for you and your family.
Choose to receive breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks as often as once per week. Set preferences and leave it to Home Chef to do the meal planning for you, or choose your recipes yourself from their ever-changing weekly menus. (You can even hand-pick the protein you’d like for select recipes using their Customize It feature.)
Each box contains the meats, produce, spices, and other ingredients you’ll need to create your week’s recipes. Note that you’ll be expected to supply staple ingredients, such as olive oil, salt, pepper, and water, as well as common cooking tools like simple pots, pans, mixing bowls, a good knife, and utensils like forks and spoons. Most ingredients are pre-portioned, meaning you’ll only receive as much of an ingredient as you need for the recipe. (No leftover ingredients going to waste in your fridge.)
What is Home Chef & how does it work?
Home Chef’s standard meals start at $9.95 per serving, but their snacks, breakfasts, and lunches run for even less per serving. Choose whether you want a 2- or 4-person plan—orders over $45 get free shipping. Your actual price per week will depend on the number of servings and meals per week in your plan, plus add-ons.

How much does Home Chef cost?
Home Chef offers a wide variety of familiar and creative flavors in their ever-changing weekly menus. They do always offer vegetarian options, but while you may find vegan, paleo, keto, or gluten-free meals on the menu, they don’t appear consistently.
Some of the dishes we’ve gotten recently include: Crispy Prosciutto and Mushroom Farfalle with Garlic Bread, French Onion Chicken with Arugula Salad and White Balsamic Vinaigrette, BBQ Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl with Farro and Ranch Dressing, and Ciabatta Tuna Melt
Note that you can preview all Home Chef recipes before you order them, so you can double-check that the ingredients, calorie counts, and time commitment are to your liking.
