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

Carb-conscious menus have the higher volume of veg that I want. The sauces created enough flavor variation for the week and were delicious additions.
