Sun Basket

Sun Basket offers chef-crafted meals full of organic produce & delicious flavors.

Sun Basket meal kits are geared toward people who want to eat a bit more healthfully - for themselves and the environment. The company sources organic ingredients and its globally-inspired recipes accommodate even some of the most challenging dietary restrictions.


Sun Basket's meal kit subscription is easy to use. After creating an account and choosing how many people you planned to serve and how many meals we wanted per week, we simply had to pick a plan.

For those with dietary restrictions such as Paleo eaters or diabetics, Sun Basket offers a lengthy list of plans.

There's also a Family Menu that offers kid-friendly recipes designed to serve four adults with leftovers for $10.99 per serving. The lower price and bigger servings make this plan a great value, but the options are more limited.

Also, it's not obvious, but you can actually order up to eight of each kit if you're planning to serve a crowd.

Where Does Sun Basket Deliver?

Sun Basket delivers to almost all zip codes and kits containing all the ingredients needed to cook the meals (except salt, pepper, and olive oil) are delivered once a week in an insulated cardboard box. Shipping is a flat $6.99.

Sun Basket vs. Blue Apron

Both Sun Basket and Blue Apron pride themselves on using global ingredients like Szechuan peppercorns and fish sauce, and both offer menus that are a bit beyond the usual suspects. However, Sun Basket's meals consistently turn out tastier. Also, the meals are more health-oriented, customizable, and most recipes able to fit a wide range of dietary restrictions. Both companies offer sustainable seafood and meat without hormones or antibiotics. But Sun Basket goes the extra mile by sourcing mostly organic ingredients. This, of course, means it costs a bit more. Blue Apron's price per serving is $9.99 and shipping is free. Sun Basket costs $10.99 to $12.99 depending on how many meals you buy each week and shipping is a flat $6.99.

Final Verdict

When it comes to healthy meals that are bursting with flavor and made with environmentally responsible ingredients, Sun Basket really delivers. It costs just a few dollars more per serving than other meal kit services and shipping isn't free, but the ingredients are organic, fresh and high quality, the recipes don't disappoint, and the service can accommodate almost anyone on a restricted diet, even diabetics. With options to change up the proteins and order multiple kits to feed a crowd, it's a flexible service you can feel good about.
