Customer Review: “I want to say that the crispy chicken milanese was among the most satisfying, enjoyable meals I ever had in my life. I realize this sounds like hyperbole, but I’m not at all a foodie. I would not let my partner talk after I finished the meal because I just wanted to sit with the memory of the taste. It really was that good.” —Howard
Why It’s Worth It: Austin-based company Snap Kitchen works with dietitians, chefs, and personal trainers to flesh out breakfast, lunch, and dinner options that are delicious and require absolutely zero prep. Pick from high-protein, keto-friendly, paleo, dairy-free meal kits, and more, then select a calorie goal, from 1,200 calories to 1,800 calories—or choose a flexible build-your-own option that lets you dabble.
Everything ships to you in a container with a recyclable plastic lid and compostable bottom, and meals come ready to plate and serve. Most meals require less than 20 minutes in the oven or microwave for reheating, so they’re sort of like an elevated version of television dinners. As an added bonus, all meals are also gluten-free. Popular meal options include chicken chile enchiladas, chimichurri beef, and almond-butter pancakes.
Cost: Depending on what type of meal plan you select, expect to spend between $29 to $39 per day, which includes three meals and two snacks.
Availability: Snap Kitchen is currently available in select states, including Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Kansas, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, New York, Massachusetts, Virginia, and West Virginia.
