If you’re somebody who finds working through a 21-step recipe that calls for 17 ingredients and, like, four different-sized pans for a weeknight roast chicken dish calming, I don’t trust you. In fact, I’ll never trust you. I know that’s probs something I have to work through eventually, but for now, it is what it is.
Cooking at home can be super, super stressful for those lacking in culinary skills, especially when you’re in a teeny apartment kitchen. But thankfully we live in a world where meal delivery services are very much A Thing™. All you’ve gotta do is head online, pull out your debit card, and let the USPS do its thing. Suddenly, there’s an entire homemade meal just waiting at your doorstep. No strings attached!
And if you do consider yourself a more seasoned chef (aka, your IG Stories are full of well-lit photos of your fancy pans), you can also partake in the glory of meal delivery services. There are plenty of options that just give you a smidge of extra guidance and let you be the star.
Take a look at our list below for the best meal delivery services that will make your life a hell of a lot easier. (And your tummy a hell of a lot happier.)
