All meals are created by a Registered Dietitian and prepared by Chefs to ensure wholesome, balanced, and great tasting meals.  In addition, meals are free from preservatives, gluten, antibiotics, artificial sweeteners, and added hormones.

In addition to breakfast, lunch, and dinner they offer soups, sides, and snacks making Snap Kitchen a one-stop shop for your week.    Save $60 with code LIVEBETTER60 >>

Snap Kitchen Reviews

We tried several healthy, freshly prepared meals for our Snap Kitchen reviews including the Bison Quinoa Hash, Chicken Satay Bowl, Grass-Fed Beeg Taco Hash, Almond Butter Pancakes, Mac & Cheese, Chicken Tenders, and Chicken Piccata.   Save $60 with code LIVEBETTER60 >>

We tried so many delicious meals it’s hard to pick our favorites, but here are our top 4.

We loved the bison quinoa hash and found this dish to be packed with flavor, a kick of heat, and was very filling.

The chicken satay bowl was another favorite.  We really enjoyed the almond butter sauce and found it to be a delicious replacement for the usual peanut sauce.

The grass-fed beef taco hash was another meal full of flavor and packed with grains and beans.  You don’t miss the taco shells at all.

Finally, our son loved the almond butter pancakes.  He found them to have a great maple taste and didn’t even need syrup.  He enjoyed them with or without the fresh berry compote.    Save $60 with code LIVEBETTER60 >>

There were a few meals that were misses for us including the mac and cheese which is made with almond milk and had a slightly odd taste compared to normal mac and cheese.  We also found that the sauce for the chicken piccata was too lemony tasting for me and I chose not to eat it with the meal.

And the braised kale served alongside the chicken tenders and turnip mash became a little mushy and bitter in the microwave.  We enjoyed the chicken tenders, though, and they were kid-approved!    Save $60 with code LIVEBETTER60 >>

Snap Kitchen Reviews: Bottom Line

Snap Kitchen makes eating healthy, gluten-free prepared meals a “snap”!  Choose from a menu full of Keto, Paleo, Whole30, Vegetarian, and Vegan meals to satisfy even the most strict dietary needs and either pick up in-store or have meals delivered to your door.

We love that Snap Kitchen offers a variety of fresh, healthy 100% gluten-free prepared meals that can be easily prepared in around 3 minutes and are free from preservatives, gluten, antibiotics, artificial sweeteners, and hormones.  We also love that their labels include ingredients, macros, and heating instructions making it easy to keep track of nutrition facts if you are on a diet.

We found many Snap Kitchen prepared meals to be very tasty and filling and love that they offer breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and more on their weekly menu.  My recommendation is to try different meals for the first several weeks so that you can find your favorites.  That’s what we did and fell in love with the bison quinoa hash and chicken satay.

And while we really liked the meals overall, there were a couple of misses for us, but these are of course based on our tastes.  In addition, there was a lot of packaging (6 ice packs) included in our package and we hope that as Snap Kitchen expands their delivery area they figure out a more environmentally friendly packaging solution.

Compared to other prepared meal services, Snap Kitchen is in the middle of the price range and like most, they require a subscription unless you are picking up or getting delivery from a local Snap Kitchen location.

We recommend Snap Kitchen to anyone looking for gluten-free meals, anyone looking for healthy, prepared meals free from preservatives and other junk, and those looking for a healthy lunch and dinner solution.    Save $60 with code LIVEBETTER60 >>

Enjoy!
