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.

A recipe with this badge features non-starchy, fibrous vegetables with a limit on calories, total carbohydrates, saturated fat, added sugar and sodium.

Roast the chicken
1 Roast the chicken

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Line two sheet pans with foil. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season 2 chicken breasts on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the barbecue spice blend to coat. Season the remaining chicken breasts on both sides with salt, pepper, and the Italian seasoning. Transfer the seasoned chicken breasts to one sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board; when cool enough to handle, thinly slice crosswise.

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.

2 Prepare the ingredients

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce for bulk cooking. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Halve lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds. Cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Core and medium dice the apple. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise. Halve and peel the onion; cut into 1/2-inch-wide wedges. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the tomatoes. Drain and rinse the beans

Place the squash pieces, diced apple, brussels sprouts, and onion wedges on the remaining sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Add as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast, stirring halfway through, 24 to 26 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.  

4 Cook the pork

Meanwhile, pat the pork dry with paper towels; season 2 pork chops on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the Tuscan spice blend to coat. Season the remaining pork chops on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the weeknight hero spice blend to coat. In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium (the center may still be slightly pink), or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. Once rested, thinly slice crosswise.

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for pork.
