Some products show up everywhere — subway ads, Instagram, celeb endorsements. With this series, we're testing such products to conclude one thing: Does it live up to the hype?
Hungryroot — the healthy grocery-subscription service that’s not meal-delivery.
Hungryroot lets you pick which healthy, delicious, and convenient foods you want on your schedule. They create and produce 70% of their own fresh vegetables, grains, proteins, sauces, snacks, sweets, and ready-to-eat products — and 30% of their offerings are from fan-favorite brands like Beyond Meat or Right Rice. Since it’s not a meal-delivery service, you’re not stuck making what they offer that week. You can choose to combine a Hungryroot stir-fry mix with one of their sauces and add your own protein. Dinner, served. Or, you can just eat their black bean brownie batter straight from the tub. We won’t judge you.

I’ve never met a subscription service I didn’t love. And in my house, we cook most meals. So, full disclosure, a healthy grocery delivery company is right up my alley. I live in a neighborhood that lacks specialty and/or healthy grocery stores. I have to make special trips to a Whole Foods or a Trader Joe’s for certain “health food” items. To be clear, I’m not complaining, but my regular grocery store is lacking certain brands and products that we love and use regularly — specifically, vegan and gluten-free items like Beyond Meat and Banza. Luckily for us, we now have Hungryroot!
What does Hungryroot make?
Hungryroot makes its own meals, snacks, and desserts that are supposed to be eaten as they come, or can be combined in one or two steps to make something yummy for dinner. No cutting, no prepping, no unpackaging 17 ingredients, and — most importantly for me and my growing family — no hour-long cooking sessions. I can make sure my weekly box contains ingredients like chickpea pesto sauce, add it to their cauliflower linguine and their seasoned grilled chicken breast for an amazing dinner in 6 minutes. Or, I can combine their beef marina with their chickpea cavatappi and air-fry up a side of broccoli rice. It’s just so easy.
Who is Hungryroot made for?
Hungryroot was made for people who want to eat nutritious meals and snacks without having to plan. If you live a hectic life, struggle creating a work/life balance (who doesn’t?), have an army to feed, or don’t enjoy spending hours in the kitchen cooking up a wholesome meal, Hungryroot will rescue you. Legit. The guilt you feel from ordering takeout too often or eating cereal for dinner four nights a week can be gone by next week. Who needs that weight on their shoulders when a company like this exists?
What does it cost?
With Hungryroot, you order a small, medium, or large box. You can choose which products or ingredients you want in your box each week, or fill out your profile and let their algorithm choose items that fit your dietary requests. Every box comes with meals and snacks.

If you want make grocery shopping easy (meaning, it comes without you having to think about placing an order), Hungryroot is perfect for you. Fresh, ready-to-eat veggies, vegan/gluten-free sauces, proteins you can simply heat up, and desserts that won’t even make it to the oven make eating healthy so uncomplicated.
