What is Green Chef?

Green Chef is a meal subscription service that focuses on creating a healthy diet. Each Green Chef box contains sustainably sourced ingredients for ready-to-cook, restaurant-style meals. Green Chef’s ingredients are certified organic unless otherwise noted, and meals take about 30 minutes to make. Customers can choose from several meal plans that adhere to different diets, including balanced living, plant-based, ketogenic and paleo.

How does Green Chef work?

When you sign up for a subscription, you choose how many recipes are delivered in your weekly box. Each recipe is a complete meal with two to four servings, depending on your selection. Plans for two people include three or four meals per week, while those for four people include between two and four meals.

Each week you choose meals from your chosen plan to be delivered the following week. You can change meal plans from week to week or stick with your original choice. If you want to make changes or don't want to receive an upcoming box, you edit or opt to skip a delivery as long as it's done before the seven-day deadline. Customers can skip up to five weeks of orders at once. There's no penalty for skipping deliveries.

This company makes it impossible to stop unwanted deliveries. I explored the site, entered information, and then tried to cancel before even closing out the site. They began billing me and sending shipments even though I had cancelled my initial exploration. When I called to make sure they would honor my cancellation, they offered me a 1/2 refund for the unwanted shipment they had billed to my credit card. They then proceeded to bill me that reduced amount for further shipments even though I was very clear I had cancelled and was cancelling. Each representative I spoke to on the phone claimed that the previous representative misunderstood or was unable to process my cancellation. AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS! Their product is a good one, but their business practices are dishonest!

The only company of its type that advertises certified organic but, when/if questioned, they admit that not all their ingredients are organic. And there is no way to know, before ordering, which are organic or not. Also, the dairy-free options tend to only be the relatively few vegetarian options, yet many of us eat meat and not dairy. For those reasons, I cancelled subscribership before sampling.

    We have been receiving Green Chef for about a month now. The food is delicious, the recipes varied. But the amount of packaging to get it to us is obscene: a cardboard box with two 1” thick full liners for insulation; two “ice” bags which when thawed are supposed to be emptied down the drain. It’s like a bag of clear Jello. Then there are all of the individual bags of ingredients labeled for use in the recipe. I don’t think the convenience is worth all of the by-product.

    The ingredients are fresh and recipes are tasty. However, Green Chef's selection of Vegan meals leaves much to be desired. They all seem to be bowl-like entree that eventually all taste the same. Cooking with these recipes leave a lot of dirty dishes. Sigh.
