    Celiac.com 04/04/2018 - Meal kits are a growing business segment, and an increasingly popular part of dinner for many busy working people. Meal kits typically include the ingredients necessary to make a complete meal, delivered to your door on a regular basis. For example, a company called  gFoodNow offers a variety of Gluten-Free Mealkits starting a only $6.99 per serving.  

    Another company called Green Chef has now included gluten-free meal options. Business Insider’s Connie Chen recently tried Green Chef’s meal offerings, and wrote about her experience for the magazine.

    In the interest of transparency, Business Insider openly declares that it has an affiliate partnerships with Green Chef, which provides them with revenue. As such, their review should be taken with a grain of salt.  That said, the idea of a reliable, good quality meal kit that is gluten-free, easy to prepare and tasty to eat will likely interest more than a few people with celiac disease.

    The meals Chen tried for one week included Orange Dijon Chicken, Hawaij-Rubbed Steak, and Red Lentil Tikka Masala. Each kit came with a recipe card that listed all meal ingredients, including known allergens, as well as the basic tools required to prepare each meal. 

    The meals can be prepared with simple kitchen tools, including a knife, pot, measuring cup, sauté pan, baking sheet, oil, salt, and pepper.

    In addition to offering gluten-free meal kits, Green Chef offers six more two-person meal kits at the following price points:

     

    • Omnivore, $11.99/meal
    • Carnivore, $13.49/meal
    • Gluten-free, $13.49/meal
    • Vegan, $11.99/meal
    • Paleo, $14.99/meal
    • Vegetarian, $10.49/meal
    • Keto, $14.99/meal

    Chen did not try the gluten-free meal kits, but instead tried the omnivore kits. We have yet to try Green Chef, but look forward to reaching out to the company. If you have tried Green Chef’s gluten-free meals, we would love to hear about your experience.
