Mosaic Foods is a plant-based meal delivery service that offers smoothies, plant-crust pizzas, veggie bowls, and family-style vegetarian and vegan meals. The menu isn’t catered to low-carb diets, but it does clearly list the nutrition facts on each item. Plus, the system uses tags on each meal to highlight high-protein recipes, as well as meals without added sugar.
Mosaic Foods’ subscription model is based on items (you can mix-and-match smoothies, pizzas, full meals, etc), so the total cost varies by what you choose to pop in your box each week. But shipping is free for boxes with 12 and 18 items, which helps make them a more affordable option than a lot of other delivery services. Another great perk: For every box sold, Mosaic donates two pounds of food to City Harvest, a New York City non-profit that helps feed families in need.

Sustainability & Quality: All of Mosaic Foods’ meals are frozen to extend shelf life and reduce food waste—both during manufacturing and at customers’ homes. Its recipes are always free of preservatives and artificial ingredients, and the company sources fruit, veggies, and grains from small, local farms. What’s more, all of Mosaic Foods’ packaging is curbside recyclable, from the foil tins and paper cups to the box your meals arrive in.
Cost: From $5 per serving for family meals
