The last place you want to spend your summer evening is trapped inside the over air-conditioned grocery store—but on the flip-side, you’re becoming concerningly close with your sushi delivery person.
The cure-all for your dilemma? Sun Basket, the healthy meal kit delivery service that does all the grocery shopping (and meal planning) for you—so you can score fresh, home-crafted meals with a fraction of the effort.
The way it works is super simple: Instead of scouring Pinterest for meal-prep inspo, you just pick the three meals from 12 dinner and breakfast options each week, and Sun Basket delivers a (recyclable! compostable!) box of ingredients to your doorstep.
Each recipe is created up by an award-winning chef and arrives with detailed instructions for turning your organic, non-GMO veggies and antibiotic-free meats and seafood into tastebud-happy dishes you’d never dream up on your own.
Think: Chile-rubbed chicken breasts with tomatillo-avocado salsa and asparagus, quinoa-chickpea salad with lemon-tahini dressing, or gingered turkey meatballs in Japanese mushroom broth. AKA, yum.
The recipes come together in about 30 minutes (which is basically how long you’d wait for the sushi guy to arrive).
Each dish comes together in about 30 minutes (which is basically how long you’d wait for the sushi guy to arrive) and can be tailored to your dietary preferences by choosing from the vegetarian, gluten-free, or paleo meal plans.
And because your summer escapades require extra-nutritious fuel, Sun Basket’s latest meal plan—Lean & Clean—is the ultimate seasonal hack. The nutrient-dense meals feature ingredients high in protein, fiber, and healthy fats (with no added sugars, gluten, or dairy) and come in the just-right size to keep you full without that overly stuffed feeling.

Lettuce-wrapped salmon burgers with lemon-dill mayo
Beef burgers are so last season. Sun Basket takes this summer grilling staple to the next level with salmon patties topped with tangy lemon-dill mayo instead of plain-old ketchup. And like all Lean & Clean dishes, this meal clocks in under the 550-calorie mark. Basically, it’s the healthiest barbecue you can have in your own kitchen.
Vegetables in parchment with green goddess dressing
This veggie-loaded dish is filled with broccoli, cremini mushrooms, green beans, and baby spinach, and it gets a punch of protein from soft-boiled eggs and savory butter beans. Fresh basil and a drizzle of green-goddess dressing gives it an extra dose of deliciousness.
