What can you expect from the box?

At Green Chef, you have the choice of selecting a meal box tailored to your lifestyle or mixing it up. Choose from Green Chef's range of meal box options, including vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, flexitarian, low-carb, or ketogenic variants.

Pricing: €€€

The priciest meal box on offer.


The recipes change weekly, offering a wide selection to accommodate your lifestyle or dietary preferences. Each week, you can choose from at least 22 different recipes.


With your first box you can choose how you want to pay: via direct debit, credit card or paypal, after your first box, your selected payment method will be automatically debited. Of course only if you purchase the boxes.


Green Chef Recipes

You specify in advance how many people will be using a meal box and what your lifestyle preferences are. For example: whether you prefer vegan, flexitarian, fish, keto, or varied meals.

Green Chef then suggests a number of meals, and you can still adjust your meal choices yourself.

You can further filter based on the categories associated with the dishes. If you want to eat vegan, vegetarian, or low-carb for a week, you can easily do so using this method.

At Green Chef, both physical and digital recipe cards are available, providing extensive information about the dishes. This includes nutritional values and calories per dish and per person, listed on the recipe cards. Additionally, you'll find information about what you'll need, how long it takes to prepare, details on allergens, and of course, the step-by-step instructions for preparing the dish.

What sets Green Chef apart? Why choose Green Chef?

The Green Chef meals are developed by dietitians in collaboration with chefs. The focus is on healthy eating, and all meals are typically under 850 kcal. This box is well suited as a meal option for a diet, such as the keto, low-carb, or the box with less than 550 kcal per meal.

The recipes adhere to the “plate of health” concept: at least 250 grams of vegetables and not too many calories. It's also clearly indicated which nutrients and nutritional values you can find in the dishes.
