Michelle from Green Chef contacted me to see if I would be interested in receiving a box of their new keto meals and reviewing them. I researched their company and discovered that they are all organic and sustainably source their ingredients! This sounded like something right up my alley! My family enjoys eating a ketogenic (keto) diet and I was excited to Nima test the meals to ensure they were gluten free.
The Green Chef Keto meal box arrived at my door. The packaging is awesome! I love that the inside insulation is made from recyclable material! Everything has labels with color coordinating stickers so I knew which food went with which recipe. Huge bonus factor there for people who don’t cook much. Each meal has a time listed to prep and cook on it and they were right on the money with the correct time!
Meal number one:
The first meal I made was the Chicken Fajita Salad. The ingredients were fresh and the salad was delicious. The instructions were easy to follow and included pictures with every step. I only wish it had a little more lime juice to add, but it was still yummy. The portion was large enough to feed 3 adults for lunch! The instructions state that the meals have a possibility of being cross-contaminated since they are packaged in a shared facility, but they do everything possible to use best practices in safe food handling. I used my Nima to test everything before I sampled 🙂
Nima was shy in the picture but it was smiling!
My husband and I ate all of the salad and chicken we could and this was still leftover for another meal! There were lots of yummy veggies to go with the protein.
Meal number two:
Cajun Cod is the next meal to review. There were lots of delicious veggies and the fish was a perfect portion. This meal fed 2 of us perfectly in portion size. My hubby’s piece of fish was delicious and buttery, however, mine was tough and chewy. I am not sure if it was a tough piece of fish or it got overcooked?
Nima was all smiles for this meal as well! The veggies had such pretty color and were abundant in serving size.
Meal number three:
My hubby prepared and cooked this meal to really show how easy their directions are to follow. He doesn’t usually prepare meals or follow recipes so we thought this would be a great show of how easy it is to do for someone who is new to cooking but wants to learn.
This was my favorite meal out of the three! It felt like rich and delicious comfort food. I am a sucker for Ratatoulie!

Sometimes life is crazy and it’s hard to get to the store, and even though I love to cook for my family and friends it would be nice to have the option of a service to have meals arrive at your doorstep when you need them too! I would totally use Green Chef personally for those times in life when I know it’s going to be crazy but I still want real quality food. I have friends that don’t enjoy cooking like I do, work crazy hours at their jobs, have small kiddos, are trying to eat healthier, budget, and I will recommend Green Chef to them!
Green Chef sponsored the Keto Meal Kit for me, however, the opinions are all my own.
