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 recommends a 2000 calorie daily intake for the general population. The 600 calorie cap equates to 30% of total 2000 calories per day based on 3 meals per day with 200 calories remaining for snack or beverage.
Carb Conscious
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 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.
Mediterranean Diet
Our Mediterranean recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, a healthy eating plan recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published jointly every five years by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This eating plan highlights the flavors and cooking styles from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, including those in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.
Plant-Forward
Our Plant-Forward recipes are designed by our chefs to help support a flexible diet that emphasizes plant-based foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and other legumes like lentils and soy foods, and includes occasional, moderate portions of meat, poultry, fish, and seafood.

Our diabetes friendly offering allows you to enjoy wholesome options while adhering to the guidelines set forth by the nutrition experts at our partner at the American Diabetes Association. A recipe with this badge features non-starchy, fibrous vegetables with a limit on calories, total carbohydrates, saturated fat, added sugar and sodium. For those chefs following ADA guidelines, it is recommended that no additional salt be added to this recipe when prepared and for chefs to skip all salting steps of a recipe.

1 Sear the pork:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with foil. Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a medium pan, heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook, turning occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan in the pan, carefully transfer the seared pork to one side of the sheet pan. 

Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the sauce:
2 Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the sauce:

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Cut off and discard the ends of the turnip, then medium dice. Combine in a bowl. Core and medium dice the apple. Pick the sage leaves off the stems; thinly slice the leaves. Combine in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the mustard, maple syrup, and 1/4 cup of warm water. Season with salt and pepper. 

Roast the pork & vegetables:
3 Roast the pork & vegetables:

Place the prepared vegetables on the other side of the sheet pan of seared pork. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork and the pork is cooked through.* Remove from the oven. Transfer the roasted pork to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.

While the pork rests, in the pan of reserved fond, heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the prepared apple and sage; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the apple is thoroughly coated and the liquid is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat.
