The 10 Meal Delivery Subscriptions Worth Trying in 2019

Adulting is hard enough without throwing meal prep and menu planning into the mix. But holistic health experts consider food to be medicine, with links between diet, inflammation, and chronic illness to prove it. That's why a balanced diet of fresh, nutritionist-approved, "healthy" foods (that deliver and cook themselves) would be the dream.

You might already be rolling your eyes if you suffer from food allergies, intolerances, or sensitive digestion. (Guilty!) I know, I know—the struggle is real. But diet-conscious meal delivery services don't just exist—there's a whole crop of delicious subscriptions available, no matter your personal preferences and needs. I had to eliminate gluten and dairy from an already pescatarian diet, for example, and can vouch for how much healthier I felt once I began cooking Sun Basket's anti-inflammatory cuisine.

The best part about wellness-minded meal subscription boxes is that they make healthy eating easy to manage with our busy lifestyles. Instead of spending Sunday handling meal prep, you can make time to kick back and indulge in some self-care. When I cook each night, my boyfriend actually calls it my therapy. (Full disclosure: Whether it's the act of cooking or the glass of wine I cook with that's responsible for the therapeutic effects is TBD.)

Here are 10 food subscription boxes to try in 2019 to get your work-life-wellness balance just right.
