One wonderful service brought on by the food industry is the wide world of at-home meal
subscription services. What in the world is a meal subscription? I’m glad you asked! Meal
subscription services come under a variety of names – Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, Home Chef,
etc.—and are designed to help busy people eat healthily, without having to go to the store!
Meal subscription boxes such as these come with pre-portioned ingredients and recipe cards so
that the cook only needs to follow the simple directions to create yummy dishes in their own
kitchen. You can go online to any of these subscription services and select your meal delivery
frequency, the meals you would like delivered, how many people you’d like to feed, and the
company does the rest! They prepare your ingredients and ship them all overnight on dry ice so
all your food stays fresh. When you open the delivery, every ingredient is ready to use; there is
no chopping, no measuring, and no hassle. You just combine everything and pop it into the
oven or onto the stovetop. It’s that easy!
Meal delivery and subscription services have become wildly popular in the past several years
due to the demand of easy dinner options that don’t include cooking a four-course meal or
going out to a restaurant to eat. These meals are great for dinner parties, date nights, or busy
