Every day we hear from our customers that they found us searching for an alternative to meal kits. They were so excited to try meal kits at first, thinking they would save time and make it easier to eat healthy, but then found them to be time consuming, expensive, and inconvenient.
Don't get us wrong, we totally understand the appeal of meal kits. We even tried some of the most popular ones when they first started to make their rounds. What we found is that meal prepping using a meal kit can be a great date night, a fun activity to do with your kids, and generally a good alternative if you have plenty of time to prepare a meal from scratch and you don't mind dealing with the disposal of a giant box and lots of packaging.
What we provide at All Real Meal, however, is very different. So, I wanted to take a moment to just explain the difference between All Real Meal and the myriads of meal kit services that seem to be popping up almost on a daily basis, and why (frankly) we're a better option for busy families.
We get it, finding time to cook these days can be a challenge, but there's nothing better than sitting down to a home cooked meal at the end of the day. So you're seeking out a meal delivery service that can provide delicious meals but also save you time and money.
While meal kits can be enticing, it's important to reflect on your needs before you decide on a meal delivery plan. Ask yourself some important questions, such as
Meal kit subscriptions provide you with ingredients to cook, as well as a recipe, allowing you to plan your meals and try new things. In theory, you should be able to prepare these meals in 30 minutes or less, but we've found that in reality it sometimes takes upwards of an hour. (even for us, and we cook for a living) A big part of this may be that it's difficult to come home after a busy day and fully focus on cooking in a detailed fashion (i.e. pressing garlic and making sauces from scratch, etc) Essentially, you're having grocery items delivered, which saves you the time you'd spend grocery shopping, and you're being given a recipe for meal planning.
While the cost is comparable to meal kits, what we provide at All Real Meal is something very different. We put together a creative new menu every week, then source the most beautiful ingredients we can, prepare your food (with love) in our little kitchen in New Hampshire, then deliver the meals to your door. Meals are delivered fully prepared (fresh, never frozen) by our driving team. Most of our customers have us deliver the meals to a cooler left for our drivers, while some meet us at the door or prefer we put the meals right into their fridge.
Unlike meal kit boxes, our packaging is very minimal. Everything we use is recyclable and we will even recycle it for you.
Another difference is that All Real Meals are available for pick up, for a la carte delivery with a free delivery minimum order of only $49, or you can purchase a money saving All Real Meal Pre Pay Wallet to receive free meal credit. None of these options require lengthy commitments or automatic funds transfers. You order when you want, and nothing will automatically be billed or show up when you don't want.
When it's time to eat, you simply reheat the meals. There's no prep, no clean up, and we're able to customize your order according to your eating needs.

I'd like to use a meal kit for a date night. That could be something new for me and my girlfriend. Now I just need to find a good one.

I like what you said while meal kits are appealing, it's crucial to consider your needs before committing to a meal delivery service. This is a good article, my uncle is looking for info and this should help him. I wanted to thank you for your explanation about meal delivery.

I appreciate that you explained the importance of meal prep to the people who have activities. My sister told me that she is hoping to find a reliable meal prep service as she is planning to start her healthy journey but she doesn't have the time to prepare it herself. Thanks to this very helpful article, I'll be sure to tell her that we can try the meal prep delivery service that I know as they have good reviews.

This article is very informative and helpful into informing whether meal kits or all real meals are better for your situation. I personally think that another great option which people can get especially for emergency meals are MREs. They also provide the nutritional requirements needed by every human which is great. Do you share the same sentiment about MREs?
