Cooking for one can often feel like a daunting task, which is why the convenience and creativity of meal kit services have emerged as a game-changer for solo diners.

As the options for those seeking to savour delicious, home-cooked meals without the hassle of planning, shopping, and excess leftovers continue to evolve, so does the culinary landscape.

With everything from cult classics to quick and easy meals, meal kits will deliver everything you need, and more, to create delicious dishes at home.

Is there a meal kit for just one person?

While most food subscription services are designed for two or more people, you can make the most of it by essentially getting a two-for-one deal.

This means you can enjoy your meals as intended and have extra left for another time, maybe even for your next day’s lunch or dinner.
