We know a balanced diet can be delicious—which is why our recipes, even those with 600 calories or less, are designed for flavor first. These recipes, created in collaboration with our in-house nutritionist, can be helpful for those looking to maintain a low-calorie diet. By being conscious of caloric intake and helping you tip the balance between fewer calories in and more calories out, this plan can be effective for those with weight-management goals.


We know a balanced diet can be delicious—and so does WW (formerly Weight Watchers). We’ve partnered with them to provide at least three WW Recommended recipes per week, helping you stay on track and meet your goals by making it easy to scan and track Points® based on your myWW+ plan.


Some of our 600 calorie or less recipes can be found on the Vegetarian menu, which puts veggies front and center and offers a variety of both plant-based proteins, and animal byproducts (eggs and dairy). We champion variety, so you’ll never find yourself in a dinnertime rut. Just because you’re skipping meat, doesn’t mean you’re skipping flavor. All recipes are tested, tasted, and vetted by Blue Apron’s culinary team.

Hear from happy cooks

Blue Apron health-conscious meal kits are a hit!

“The food was amazing and the portions were a great size. Other programs, I leave dinner still a little hungry. This was great and perfect for following the WW program.

I have tried many other meal delivery boxes, and Blue Apron is so far the best. The food is always delicious and much lower in calories than others. Last week, all 3 meals were delicious, didn’t take too long to make, and were relatively low calorie.

I love the meals from Blue Apron. I’m on Weight Watchers and am soooo happy there are 3 options for me every week! Makes it super easy.

I love the carb conscious option because it’s lower calories!! So healthy and fresh! Blue Apron never fails to impress. Everything was delicious!

I like the addition of the Wellness recipes with lower calories. The recipes still taste really good and are not boring at all, so this is my main reason for doing Blue Apron—to cook exciting healthy recipes.

We changed from HelloFresh to Blue Apron and it was the best choice we made! You offer seasonal vegetables and they all come fresh.
