You may be so over food shopping and leftovers after the holidays that once the food comas subside, you may not want to head back out and food shop. Luckily, there are a plethora of meal subscription boxes available providing a wide variety of options for customers and families adhering to many nutritional needs.


Sun Basket

Prepare healthy food from scratch with Sun Basket’s farm-to-table menu options for any dietary need. Whether your family hosts omnivores looking for healthy options, strict vegans, vegetarians looking for options or a few Paleo and gluten-free eaters, Sun Basket has something for everyone.


Sun Basket partners with organic farmers practicing sustainable crop rotation and water efficiency, and gives back through local food banks and employee programs. Programs vary $10–12 per serving, based on meal plan and dietary needs. Enjoy fresh ingredients, unique recipes and restaurant-quality, home-cooked meals.


Pete’s Paleo

If you’re completely over cooking, but still looking to have a home-cooked meal with the family, try Pete’s Paleo. The innovative food-delivery service provides fresh, seasonal, organic, chef-prepared meals — ready to heat and eat. Each meal is prepared with no cooking required. Customers can choose 5–14 meal plans from $123–325 per subscription. Prices vary as customers can add items and receive meal deliveries every one–two weeks. Try the one-time purchase option for a post-holiday catch up with the family.

Splendid Spoon

For the family looking to cleanse and start the New Year right, there is a box subscription service for that. Try nutrient-enriched, low-calorie and satisfying plant-based meals from Splendid Spoon and ring in the New Year with a healthy kick. The program provides wholesome soups five times a week, no cooking required, with a one-day cleanse.


For $95 per delivery, customers receive five plant-based bowls to replace regular lunch. Or, recharge with four drinkable soup meal replacements and one plant bowl in the full-cleanse plan. Each plan is customizable for those on an elimination program, such as a sugar detox or paleo diet. Daily soup meal replacement options include five meal replacement soups, or cleanses, for $65 per order — perfect to carry over once back at work to ease you and the kids into your daily routine.


Hello Fresh

Get back in the kitchen and the swing of things after the holidays with Hello Fresh. Check out the Family Plan menu including Tuscan sausage and pepper spaghetti; parmesan-chicken strips with rosemary, green beans and honey mustard; and a sweet-and-smoky pork tenderloin with apple carrot slaw. Go through the ingredients together and create a five-star family meal. Each box comes with every ingredient necessary, recipe cards and the time it takes to prepare the meal.
