Low Carb meals are moderate carbohydrate options and offer the ability to limit carbohydrate by grams (30g, 40g, and 50g limits per meal - not per day!). 

Paleo meals exclude all grains and legumes (like beans and peanuts). You can combine this plan with our Dairy-Free plan, or include some dairy if you prefer. 

Mediterranean meals minimize saturated fat (less than 10% of calories from saturated fat) and focus on heart-healthy fats like olive oil and nuts. 

Diabetic/Prediabetic meals are moderate carbohydrate options and offer the ability to limit carbohydrate by grams (30g, 40g, and 50g limits per meal - not per day!). 

Ketogenic meals are high fat, moderate protein and low carbohydrate. Our keto plan is designed around your preferred carb level, from 20 to 40 grams net carbs per day. (The carb level needed to reach ketosis varies from person to person, and you'll be able to adjust it as needed over the course of your membership.) All keto meals are designed to fit your carb level, as well as have over 60% calories from fat.

30-Day Cleanse meals exclude gluten, dairy, legumes, soy, and all added sugars. We recommend using it for 30 days before reintroducing foods, using one of our other plans!

Low FODMAP meals are designed to exclude foods that trigger digestive disorders like IBS/IBD. (You can learn more about those triggers here.) We follow the Stanford University protocol for the foods we include on this plan.

No Red Meat meals exclude beef, pork and lamb.

Pescatarian meals exclude beef, pork, lamb, and poultry.

Flexitarian meals limit meat and seafood. We will try to make the majority of your meals vegetarian, but your other preferences will determine the total number of vegetarian meals available to you. 

Vegetarian meals exclude meat and seafood. While it includes eggs and dairy by default, you may exclude these if you'd like.

Vegan meals exclude all animal products (meat, seafood, eggs, dairy, honey).

Clean Eating meals focus on whole ingredients, like unprocessed proteins and vegetables. This plan excludes refined sugar and pre-prepared ingredients, like hummus or pesto. It also offers the option to exclude refined grains, like bread and pasta.

Gluten Free meals exclude products commonly containing gluten. (We recommend checking the label of all products if you have a gluten allergy, as some brands may be made in a facility that is not certified Gluten Free.)

Dairy Free meals exclude products commonly containing dairy.

Kosher meals exclude non-kosher foods like shellfish and pork, and do not combine dairy and meat. (We recommend checking the label of all products, as some brands are not certified Kosher.)

Pregnant/Nursing meals exclude foods that are at higher risk for food-borne illnesses and may be unsafe for new or expectant mothers.

Low Sodium meals limit sodium to 1,500 mg per day, per the American Heart Association guidelines
