The best keto meal delivery service depends on your dietary needs and other factors. These options may include low calorie, gluten-free, or paleo meals, and fresh or frozen meals.

Many people find that the low carb, high fat keto diet helps them reach their health goals, such as weight loss or improved blood sugar management (1, 2).

Most people on keto aim for 25–50 grams of net carbs each day, depending on their calorie needs. The phrase “net carbs” refers to total carbs minus fiber.

Sticking to the diet can require a lot of time cooking, meal planning, and meal prepping. Meal delivery services can ease some of the work of keto meal prep, providing you with meals or meal kits that meet your nutritional needs.

This can save you a lot of time in the kitchen and make it easier to follow the keto diet.

Here are the 10 best keto meal delivery services according to a registered dietitian.

To assemble this list of keto meal delivery services, Healthline used the following criteria:

  • Keto-friendly options: We included services that are entirely keto-friendly, as well as ones with dedicated keto-friendly meal plans or filters.
  • Cost: We analyzed how expensive each service’s servings are. We also looked at each brand’s shipping and delivery prices.
  • Customization: We looked for services that accommodated different lifestyles and dietary needs to give people the most variety and flexibility.
  • Ingredient quality: We looked at where meal delivery services source their ingredients and what the quality of those ingredients is. For instance, we kept an eye out for companies that use some or all organic ingredients.
  • Nutritional information: We included examples of nutritional information for popular meals from each delivery service that was accurate at the time of publication. It’s always important to double-check the label, because companies can tweak the recipes.
  • Quality and safety standards: All the services on our list are in compliance with USDA and FDA food safety and manufacturing regulations, use a trusted shipper to handle its food products, and lists all ingredients, allergens, and nutrition facts on its website or product packaging.
  • Vetting: The services on our list have been vetted to ensure that they align with Healthline’s brand integrity standards and approach to well-being. You can read more about our vetting process.

Disclaimer: All of the services tested below were tried by Healthline writers or editors, who received the meals for free. All opinions are our own.

What our tester says

“After trying more than 16 of the most popular prepared meal delivery services, Factor is my overall favorite. I’ve tried the service several times, and I’ve never had an issue finding meals that sound appealing.

“I particularly love the flavor combinations and quality of the proteins — even the salmon tasted fresh and wasn’t at all fishy. Plus, unlike many prepared meals, the vegetables were soft without being mushy.

“The Sun-Fried Tomato Chicken with Zucchini Noodles was one of my favorite keto-friendly entrees from Factor. The zucchini noodles didn’t get too soft, the chicken was juicy and well seasoned, and the sauce was rich and flavorful without being overly salty.

Green Chef differs from the other options on this list in that it delivers meal kits rather than fully prepared meals.

Each box contains recipes and all the ingredients you need to make your meals.

Green Chef is a certified organic company, so most of the ingredients are organic. Additionally, all the ingredients used in the keto meal plan are certified gluten-free.

One advantage of Green Chef over other services on this list is that it’s family-friendly, giving you the option to receive meals that feed 2, 4, or 6 adults.

Green Chef delivers to most areas in the United States, with the exception of Hawaii, Alaska, and parts of Louisiana.

What our tester says

“I’ve tried Green Chef several times, and the service consistently provides flavorful recipes with high quality ingredients.

“To make mealtime easier, many of the ingredients arrived pre-chopped or pre-measured and none of the recipes took longer than the estimated time to prepare. I also liked that the recipes were creative and different than what I’d typically prepare.

Additionally, the service has an a la carte option, which allows you to purchase individually prepared ingredients to build your own meals.

Trifecta delivers nationwide, including to Alaska and Hawaii.

What our tester says

“Trifecta Nutrition meals were tasty, filling, and nutritious. The entrees arrived frozen and were shipped and packaged well.

“They needed to be reheated on the stove, but they were pretty tasty and maintained their texture for the most part. Though, a few required additional ingredients, such as spices or veggies, to make them more palatable.

“I wouldn’t recommend this to picky eaters because you’re unable to choose your own meals and can only select up to two ingredients to exclude. However, I think it is a good fit for people following certain diet patterns, including keto.

HelloFresh is a popular meal kit that offers a variety of family-friendly meals, making it a great choice for busy families.

However, it doesn’t offer any dedicated keto-friendly options. Typically, all the meals contain a carb source such as rice, pasta, or potatoes. The service does have some low carb meals tagged “Carb Smart,” which typically have around 40 grams of total carbs per serving.

Unfortunately, that means most of the Carb Smart options are likely too high in carbs for a keto diet.

Regardless, I think HelloFresh is a great choice for families in which one or two people are on keto and others are not.

You can easily remove the carb source or replace it with a more keto-friendly one, such as cauliflower mash or zucchini noodles. The service allows you to make ingredient substitutions.

I have done this myself with great success — I eat a keto diet, but my husband and children do not. If you choose this approach, try to avoid meals with sugary sauces such as glazes, which can be more difficult to substitute on keto.

HelloFresh is available nationwide.


  • easy to make keto-friendly substitutions for some meals
  • inexpensive compared with other services
  • good for families in which some people eat keto and others do not


  • extra cost for shipping
  • hidden carbs in many meals from glazes or sauces in addition to carb sources like rice, pasta, and potatoes
  • no dedicated keto options

Snap Kitchen uses some organic produce and all meals are free of gluten, preservatives, and artificial sweeteners.

Snap Kitchen delivers to most areas of the continental United States and even offers local pickup in select zip codes.

While you can always shop the full menu, Sunbasket allows you to set certain dietary preferences, including keto-friendly, to ensure that you never receive an item that doesn’t meet your needs.

According to the company’s website, keto-friendly meals contain at least 20 grams of protein and 15 grams of net carbs or fewer per serving. What’s more, recipes prioritize healthy fats, like avocados, high quality proteins, nuts, and seeds.

The service also offers single-serving, microwavable Fresh & Ready meals, some of which are keto-friendly.

Sunbasket delivers to most states but is not available in Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, North Dakota, or some parts of New Mexico.

What our tester says

“After trying more than 25 meal delivery services, Sunbasket is my favorite for meal kits because of its high quality ingredients and creative flavor combinations.

“I was particularly impressed by the quality of the salmon I received, and my whole family enjoyed the dishes that we tried. The house-made spice blends were also a nice touch. The only thing I didn’t like were the recipe booklets, as I found them a bit harder to read compared with larger recipe cards with step-by-step pictures.

“You can read more about my experience trying Sunbasket in our comprehensive review.”

When choosing a keto meal delivery service, there are several important questions to ask, including:

  • Is it keto-friendly? The most important consideration in choosing a keto meal delivery service is whether it offers keto-friendly options. Many meal delivery services offer paleo or low carb options, but these are not necessarily low enough in carbs to suit a keto diet.
  • How many keto options are available? While some services offer a dedicated keto menu with multiple options to choose from, others simply offer a few keto-friendly recipes each week. Which one to choose depends on how important variety is to you.
  • Does it fit your budget? It’s important to find a service that is available in your area and suits your budget. These services range drastically in price, from $8 per serving to $15 or more per serving. Make sure to factor in shipping costs as well.
  • Does it require a subscription? If you need flexibility, consider choosing a service that doesn’t require a subscription.
  • Does it accommodate other dietary or ingredient preferences? Check whether the service can accommodate your dietary preferences and whether the ingredient quality is up to your standards. Many options on our list use high quality meats and some organic produce.

High quality foods include grass-fed beef, free-range chicken, cage-free eggs, and sustainably sourced seafood.

These means of raising or harvesting food are considered more ethical than conventional farming practices, and grass-fed beef and free-range eggs may have better nutrient profiles than their conventional counterparts (3, 4, 5, 6).

The keto diet is a high fat, moderate protein, low carb diet. Most people on keto limit their carb intake to no more than 25 grams of net carbs per day.

The goal of the keto diet is to enter a metabolic state called ketosis, where your body is burning ketones from fat as its primary source of fuel, rather than glucose (sugar) from carbs (7).

Ketogenic diets have proven beneficial for people with epilepsy, and research shows that they may also be advantageous for weight loss and blood sugar management as well (1, 2).

Keto diets may be more filling than other low calorie diets, and they may also help prevent muscle mass losses that often accompany weight loss. Additionally, being in ketosis may make it easier to burn stored body fat (7).

However, to enter ketosis you must strictly limit your carb intake — making the diet difficult to follow and stick to. You will need to avoid:

  • sugary beverages like sodas and fruit juices
  • carb-rich dairy products, like milk, yogurt, and ice cream
  • cakes, cookies, pastries, candy, and other sweets or desserts
  • bread, pasta, and rice
  • honey, jam, jelly, syrup, and sugar
  • potatoes and sweet potatoes, and foods made from them
  • starchy vegetables like corn and peas
  • breaded meats and vegetables, like fried chicken with the skin on or tempura broccoli
  • carb-rich fruits such as bananas, mangos, apples, and grapes

Therefore, keto isn’t right for everyone. Additionally, there’s been no long-term research on the safety of the keto diet.

If you’re interested in trying keto, it’s a good idea to speak with your healthcare professional first — especially if you have any preexisting medical conditions or are taking any prescription medications.


  • Research shows that keto can be helpful for weight loss and blood sugar management.
  • A high fat, low carb diet may make it easier to feel full and satisfied on fewer calories.
  • The diet may help prevent losses in muscle mass.


  • The diet is extremely restrictive and difficult to follow.
  • No long-term safety data is available.
  • The diet can be high in processed foods if not well planned.

Does HelloFresh offer keto options?

HelloFresh doesn’t have a specific keto meal plan, but they do have some meals that may be keto-friendly. You can view the nutrition facts for the meals on the HelloFresh website before ordering.

Which food delivery has keto options?

518 Kitchen is one of the few 100% keto-friendly meal delivery services. However, many companies offer keto-specific menus and meal plans, including Factor, Trifecta Nutrition, Snap Kitchen, Clean Eatz Kitchen, The Good Kitchen, and Diet-to-Go — all of which offer microwave-ready prepared meals.

If you’re interested in a meal kit, Green Chef and Sunbasket are the best options because they have dedicated keto menus.

What is the cheapest keto meal delivery service?

The least expensive keto meal delivery option is Clean Eatz Kitchen, particularly when purchasing in bulk. The service’s Keto Box contains 30 meals for $195, which breaks down to about $6.50 per serving.

Are keto meal delivery services as healthy as cooking your own keto meals?

Cooking your own meals tends to be a healthier choice than using a meal delivery service because it gives you more control over the ingredients and the freshness.

However, many of these meal delivery services — particularly 518 Kitchen, The Good Kitchen, Sunbasket, and Green Chef — are committed to using whole-food ingredients and avoiding processed additives.

Therefore, these services can be a great choice if you need a convenient option that is still minimally processed.

The low carb, high fat keto diet is a great option for many people, but it can require a lot of cooking. Using a keto meal delivery service can save you some time in the kitchen, allowing you to focus on other things while still meeting your dietary goals.

Look for services that offer keto options, are available in your area, fit your budget, and meet any of your other dietary needs and preferences.

Plus, as many services offer discounts on your first order, it’s worth trying a few services out to see which one is the best fit for you.
