Wellness at Blue Apron
Why we believe in a 360 approach to wellness
We’ve long believed in the power of home cooking to transform people’s lives—so when we set out to create our first-ever wellness menu, we knew it wasn’t just about the food on your plate. Home cooking has the ability to unlock a whole host of benefits for your holistic health--physical, brain, relationship, emotional, and financial.
Blue Apron Wellness recipes are designed with the diverse dietary needs of our customers in mind. These recipes include options with specific nutrient criteria, such as Carb Conscious, or 600 Calories or Less, or they may feature ingredients like Wellness Grains, and/or styles like Vegetarian, or Pescatarian.
To view a recipe's full nutrition information, head to your Upcoming page at blueapron.com, click on a specific recipe, then head to the Nutrition tab, and select 'View Full Nutrition.' Nutrition Facts Panels are available up to 1.5 weeks in advance.
The signature recipes under Wellness 360 showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and grains, as well as lean proteins from poultry, pork, fish, seafood, and tofu, including moderate portions of dairy. These meals are well-balanced and consider the contribution of calories, fat, saturated fat, and sodium to the daily diet.
Our Carb Conscious recipes provide a balanced approach to carbohydrate consumption by replacing refined carbohydrates from sources like white flour, rice, and cane sugar with high-fiber foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Our Carb Conscious recipes have 48g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, which is at least a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2022.
600 CALORIES OR LESS
All of these delicious recipes come in at 600 calories or less per serving, ideal for those who choose to monitor their caloric intake, without sacrificing flavor. The US Food & Drug Administration uses 2000 calorie daily intake for general advice. The 600-calorie cap equates to 30% of a total 2000 calories per day based on 3 meals per day with 200 calories remaining for snacks or beverages.
As always, we offer dietary preferences when you order with Blue Apron. Blue Apron vegetarian recipes do not contain meat, poultry, fish, or seafood.* They are made with fruits and vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds and are created with or without dairy products, honey, and/or eggs for you to enjoy as part of your vegetarian preference.
*Select artisanal cheeses may contain animal-derived rennet.
Our Wellness recipes feature grains such as barley, quinoa, farro, orzo, couscous, and more. These grains are handpicked by our Culinary team in collaboration with our Registered Dietitian to provide nutritious grains to round out your dish.
Wellness recipes with the Pescatarian badge feature a wide array of nutritious seafood options like salmon, cod, tilapia, crab, and shrimp. While these dishes will never contain meat, pork, or poultry options, they may contain animal-derived ingredients such as milk, butter, cheese, and/or honey. As always, check your recipe's nutrition publication for the full list of the recipe's ingredients.
