Need some antioxidants? Can’t be bothered to deal with the grocery store right now? We’ve got exactly 13 solutions that whisk healthy snacks and goodies right to your door.
From beauty products to wine, household goodies to retro movie toys, you can get pretty much anything delivered to you in the form of a professionally compiled care package on a monthly basis.
And while the subscription box trend has gone a little nuts, we have to admit these food boxes make it super easy to have healthy, delicious snacks and piles of nutrients on deck at all times.
We’ve rounded up our favorite food (and drink)-filled boxes to make eating well a breeze.
Feeling nibbly between meals? We’ve got you covered.
Price: Starts at $7.99 per month
This box lets you try out eight or more unique organic or all-natural snacks, like sweet chipotle almonds and Snapea Crisps, every month.
Instead of reaching for the candy, you can pop some organic Chocolate Chunk Cookie Mix in your mouth and be confident you’re getting ingredients without the crappy additives.
When you think about health snacks in a store, you can wind up spending $5 on a packet of yogurt-coated raisins. So $7.99 is an absolute steal.
The best part? Buy a box, and Love with Food will donate a meal to families across the United States who might not have easy access to grub. That’s an offer we can get behind.
Price: £4.49 per box
Note: This box no longer delivers to the U.S. For a list of delivery areas, see here.
Graze is a key player in the health food scene — you’ve likely seen them adorning the shelves of stores all over the country.
With trail mix options like cinnamon fig roll and chai latte, healthy snacking has never tasted so good. And these single-serving snacks are always made from high-quality ingredients, so you don’t have to worry what makes them taste amazing.
They also arrive in a dainty little makeshift lunchbox to take to the park on your lunch break, so you can eat nature while experiencing it.
Enter your snack preferences when ordering, and Graze will handpick snacks for you from more than 100 items — cross your fingers for the lemon drizzle oat bars.
Price: People who subscribe to regular deliveries get loaded snack boxes from $34.99 per month.
If you put one aside to share with your pals at the week’s football game every week, you could have a different healthy nibble for the majority of 2 seasons.
Browse the website and fill a box with your favorite healthy treats — salt and vinegar veggie chips, sweet blueberry almonds, and peanut butter graham jam are just a few favorites.
While this doesn’t have “ooooh, what is it this time?” element of the more random services, it’s a good way to make sure sure you like what’s in the box. This is a great option for more selective eaters.
Shipping is free on orders over $25. With the choices on offer, trust us, it won’t be hard to reach the limit.
Price: Starting at $14.99 for 7 snacks, with prices dropping for longer subscriptions
With gluten-free, vegan, classic, and diet options, and 1 to 6-month subscriptions, UrthBox caters to all kinds of healthy lifestyles.
Each box is filled with full-size savory and sweet snacks, such as dried meats, nuts, and granola, and healthy beverages like coconut water and nutrition shakes.
Stash some at the office, in your purse, and at home — wherever you keep it, just make sure no one else can get to your stash.
Oh — they also send beauty, hygiene, hair, and skin care products, as well as supplements. It’s like they’re funnelling wellness into your life wholesale.
Price: A Classic Box subscription is $42.49 per month.
Unhealthy surprise: Tripping over an eviction letter to accidentally land in the room that contains your partner having extramarital sex. Also, a piano falls on you.
Healthy Surprise: A box rammed full of gluten-, soy-, and corn-free vegan or Paleo treats.
We’ll gladly take the latter, thank you very much.
The Healthy Surprise box helps you discover tasty new snacks that make you feel 400 percent, like cavemen cookies and roasted seaweed.
The monthly box makes it way easier to maintain your health kick on frantic days.
6. Vegan Cuts
Having a nightmare sourcing vegan munchables at your local megamart? Vegan Cuts have the backs of our plant-based pals 100 percent. Now you needn’t look beyond your front door.
Vegan Cuts now makes veganism easy, sending 10 or more delicious snacks per month.
But veganism isn’t just about food — it’s about removing exposure to animal products in every walk of life. Vegan Cuts’ answer? Beauty and makeup subscriptions that give you entirely plant-based toiletries.
It’s not the whole answer, but it’s a great service for people who are all about that vegan life.
Products range from vegan treats, such as fig bars and peanut butter cups, to foods you didn’t think could be animal-free (nice to meet you, vegan marshmallows). BTW, we checked, and “vegan marshmallows” isn’t just a euphemism for “pillows.” They’re real, and they’re in these boxes.
Snacks are great, but a hearty meal is unbeatable. Some services give you the nutrients without the naughtiness.
7. Butcher Box
Price: $149 per month to build your own box
Not knowing where your meat comes from can be scary. Is it grass-fed? Hormone-free? Humanely raised? Fear not, beef, chicken, and pork sent to your door (in pre-portioned packages!).
While this isn’t a package of full meals, it’s a regular supply of top quality meat to supplement your veggies and grains.
You know you’ll have just the right amount of meat and it comes from as ethical a place as meat can come. (Obviously vegans or veggies should steer clear — the name should be a strong hint that this is the opposite of plant-based.)
The box comes with enough meat for around 20 meals and is curated each month with different cuts of meat, from sirloin tips to ground beef to short ribs. You can set up boxes every month, every other month, or once every 3 months.
8. Balance Box
Price: From £22.99 per day
Note: This box delivers to UK only.
Less a snackfest, more full meals planned by nutritionists to give you just the right spread of nutrients across your day.
All of their meals are free from refined carbs, processed sugars, and horrible additives. The price tag is a little heftier than other services, but with it you get three meals and two snacks.
It’s a whole day of eating, planned for the maximum health benefit, delivered right through your door. Imagine just knowing that all the food you eat that day will be ethically sourced and great for you? Right? Thought so.
Price: Starts at $7.99 per meal for 12 meals every week.
Want full, gluten-free, peanut-free organic meals? Freshly does it!
You can line up fancy meals like steak peppercorn and Sicilian-style chicken Parmesan, and while the menu is more on the decadent side than a bag of chia seeds, there are at least eight dairy-free or low-calorie options available every week.
Freshly is less a health food delivery service, more a meal delivery service that accounts really well for people with allergies and dietary requirements.
Food and culture cannot exist without the other. Here are some beautiful ideas that stimulate more than just your tastebuds with regular deliveries.
Price: A box of 20 to 25 snacks shipped directly from Japan for $39.99.
For lovers of Japanese cuisine (so, pretty much everyone) who don’t want to get a huge takeaway or schlep to a restaurant, Bokksu is a dream come true.
They send out their super authentic snacks in line with a monthly theme, as well as providing a Culture Guide magazine that helps Bokksu’s now-well-fed customers understand a thing or two about the history behind the food.
With teas, snacks, and unique imported candies (green tea KitKat, anyone?), this will satisfy the most demanding of sushi lovers.
Plus, your money goes straight to family businesses making an honest living and not a huge, “dirty food” conglomerate.
Price: $25 every month
Amazing food and bangin’ tunes are two of humanity’s most prominent contributions to the universe. And we’ll be damned if Turntable Kitchen doesn’t give you both at once.
If you’re a foodie and music aficionado, this is the subscription box to hit all your senses at once.
Subscribers receive a 7-inch vinyl single, a digital mixtape, up to two fresh, local ingredients, and three seasonal recipes each month. Cue the ultimate (solo) kitchen dance party.
It’s a very specific type of person that will get the most from this. If you’re that person, you’ve probably already subscribed on the strength of the idea alone.
We know this isn’t a “health box” in the strictest sense of the word, but music can be crazy good for you too.
For when it’s caffeine o’ clock and Starbucks is all the way over there.
Price: Starts from $10.95 per month for a 12-ounce bag or around 24 cups of coffee
You know what’s better than coffee? Really heckin’ good coffee. And those chain-store lattes can add up to quite a chunky bill.
Step out of your coffee comfort zone and try new roasts from around the country with MistoBox.
The caffeinated subscription box sends 12-ounce bags of freshly roasted coffee based on your roast and coffee-type preferences, filtering (lol) blends, espresso, and decaf.
You can have your coffee every week. You can have your coffee every month. Either way, you can have your coffee. And we daresay you’ll be very happy about it.
Skip the long lines and whipped cream temptations (not those ones, remove your mind from the gutter) and become your own barista this year.
Price: $60 for a 3-month subscription, or $120 for a 6-month membership.
Matchamaker, matchamaker, make me a matcha. Or just send me between three and five cups of four different teas every month.
Whether you’re a tea lover or a first-time sipper, there are so many teas out there waiting to be tried.
Amoda sends subscribers four premium teas (each tea makes 3 to 5 cups) each month, along with biodegradable tea filters and steeping instructions.
Fill out a short questionnaire to have teas recommended based on taste preferences, and try fun flavors like Coconut Bellini and Berry Maple Waffles, or variations on classics (Lime Green with Envy, anyone?).
Besides its calming effect, tea has many health benefits that will make you want to keep sipping.
Healthy food is one of our favorite things, alongside not having to think about leaving the sofa. So these delivery services suit us to a T.
If you’re following a controlled diet, make sure you pay attention to serving sizes. While they’re healthy, eating the whole month’s delivery at once won’t provide the health benefits you’re after.
You might be after a wide range of full meals. Although there’s a few great options above, you might want to check out our piece about meal delivery options.
Now, feel free to grab a handful of sunflower seeds for your hard work.
