I am just going to cut right to the chase today you guys. I am madly in love with Sun Basket foods. I have done a few food delivery program reviews in the past and while I felt they were great, I also felt the foods just didn’t quite fit my WOE (way of eating.) And that is not the fault of that particular food delivery program, but rather my own pickiness. I like to stay as low carb as possible without added sugars and as clean as possible. I find eating that way helps with my PCOS, anti immune issues and keeps the inflammation down with my osteoarthritis and degenerative disk. I also think it has been a huge help with my mental health as well.
When Sun Basket came into my life and I saw they offered meal plans which were non-GMO in a Gluten-Free, Paleo, Chef’s Choice, or Vegetarian option. Another thing which I was drawn to was that their food is sustainably sourced with seasonal ingredients from the country’s top farms. Very farm-to-table which makes me really happy. They also are advocates of responsible sourcing which means grass-fed, antibiotic-free pastured meats and sustainable seafood from ranchers and fisherman they trust.
And let me tell you, you CAN really taste a difference in these meat products.
Here’s how Sun Basket works:
- You choose 3 recipes for 2 or 4 people at $11.49 per meal.
- Customize with Paleo, Gluten-Free, and Vegetarian options.
- They also have a Chef’s Choice and Rise & Shine option (mmmmm breakfast)
- Created by a top San Francisco chef and approved by a nutritionist.
- Ingredients are pre-measured. Less hassle for you and less waste for the environment.
- Skip the grocery store and enjoy the best seasonal ingredients.
- Discover new products and flavors that are hard to find on your own.
- Weekly delivery to your door.
- Ingredients are shipped in an insulated box so they stay fresh.
- Recyclable and reusable packaging materials.
The recipes are simple, quick, and taste AHHHH-Mazing. I know some of you are scoffing at the $11.49 per meal. But the accountant in me did the math. I know at my local grocer, grass-fed meat – just ground beef is $8.99 per pound. By the time you buy all the ingredients for the recipes you are going to go way over that $11.49 per meal.
Because these recipes are super quick, you can have dinner on the table in no time and SKIP going through the drive thru or ordering a pizza.
What I Tried:
I picked the Paleo option, and all of my Paleo recipes were also Gluten-Free. I was extremely happy with EVERYTHING! Plus, I had so much fun putting these together, getting back into the kitchen, and cooking again. Cooking is good for my soul.
- Pan Roasted Pork Loin with Peach-Tomato Salsa
- Mediterranean Beef Kebabs with Mint-Pistachio Relish
- Almond-Crusted Cod with Chermoula and Cucumber-Olive Salad
I thoroughly loved everything.

I’ve never tried a food delivery program before. I feel like I would have to time my life around it and it’s too difficult for me.
Meagen Brosius says
I haven’t heard of this particular one before nor have we opted to try one. I’m not sure if it’s for us or not, we’ve gone back and forth about it but haven’t taken the leap just yet

Just came across your article when I was doing a search of PCOS diet and meal box/delivery services. I am so glad to hear that Sunbasket works with your diet plan. I’m looking forward to switching my plan ( I was on Mediterranean but am going to switch to the Paleo option). Thanks for the advice!
You are very welcome! They are a wonderful company/brand.
