Top Picks: Best Delivery Meal Plans to Help Single Moms
If you simply don’t have the time to meal prep, and the thought of eating another Lean Cuisine has you wanting to jump off a cliff, you’re certainly not alone.
As moms, we tend to put our needs on the backburner—and single moms know this reality all too well. Many of us eat forget to eat or are so exhausted at the end of the day that we’ll dine on whatever is readily available. But, if you want to take charge of your health, there are meal plans with single moms in mind that won’t break your bank.
The benefits of the meal plans we researched:
Here’s our top three picks when it comes to the best delivery meal plans to help single moms…
Most Affordable Over All: EveryPlate
Like most delivery meal plans, EveryPlate allows you to modify based on the number of meals and servings you want per week. And, like with the others, the more you select the lower the price. EveryPlate keeps in mind your dietary needs, and offers delicious meals that can be whipped up in 30 minutes or less. If you choose the option for two, you can always eat one serving and save the other for lunch the next day—so that’s like two meals for one. And these meals can be as low as $3.00 per serving even without a coupon.
Tastiest Heat and Eat Option: Factor 75
If you have a palate that wants a little more, Factor 75 meals are definitely worth the price tag. Watch for specials that often come in which can significantly lower the price of these meals which can run anywhere from $8.00-$10.00 per serving. From keto to low carb, vegetarian to dairy and nut free, all of these meals are truly delicious down to the last bite. This is a great option if the thought of cooking at the end of the day sounds like too much. You work hard, treat yourself to a deliciously prepared meal that’s ready in just three minutes! (On a side note, there’s another company called Freshly which is a similar concept, but the meals are nowhere near as tasty—and the chicken breasts are often slimy. Do yourself a favor and avoid it!)
Best Reliable Option for Picky Eaters: Hello Fresh
I’ve prepared dozens of these meals, and while they’re tasty, the ingredients are pretty basic. These can be good to try if you’re in a cooking rut, and you can always hold onto the recipes and recreate them with store-bought ingredients of your own later on when you put your subscription on pause. Most of these ingredients are relatively bland, so it’s a great choice if you have some picky eaters at home or sensitive stomachs are a concern.
