Gluten Free Food Delivery Service?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anybody here ever tried any food delivery services and had any luck? They claim that they're gluten free but when pressed, they're 100% everything else, but never claim to be 100% gluten free. Freshly is about the only one that made that claim but doesn't deliver to my part of the country. Bummer. Any thoughts or ideas out there?

I've started using one called Epicured (getepicured.com).  it was designed to be a low FODMAPS food service, but it's also 100% gluten-free.  The food is generally very good, though it can be pricey.  I don't know if they're nationwide yet (they're only launched in July, I think).  Those are prepared meals.  For meal prep delivery, Green Chef has a gluten-free plan, though it's a shared facility.  Food is good.  We also use Blue Apron - while there are some things i can't eat, I can often make substitutions, and they're very specific in their ingredient labeling (I've called them to discuss).  Customer service is excellent and most meals are delicious.

Cook your own food? :)

A crockpot is so easy most people should be able to do it.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

I tried Epicured. All of those meals looked so good Nikki2777 but they are very regional. Bummer. I emailed a place called Freshly. The meals look good and get fairly good reviews. I just need something quick but not the Udi's frozen meals. Of course I'm not in their area either. They did however ask where I was located and when I said just outside Cincinnati, this is the answer I got:

FYI... as of Oct 2017, Green Chef is now certified Gluten Free.  (Sun Basket states on their website that cross-contamination is likely and their food is NOT recommended for those with gluten intolerance.)

I haven't tried Green Chef yet, but am due to get my first shipment in a couple of weeks.

 


Diagnosed at age 42.

Positive Bloodtest: Oct 1, 2013

Gluten-free since: Oct 2, 2013

Celiac confirmed by Biopsy: Oct 29, 2013
