Young Professionals Are Using This Dinner Hack Instead of Ordering Takeout

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

You want to eat healthy, but meal planning and grocery shopping demands are simply too much from your over-loaded schedule. So what's the solution? For a growing number of young professionals, it's Plated, the delivery service that brings fresh ingredients and step-by-step recipes to your door.

Plated is simple: You go to their site and choose the recipes you'd like. On the selected delivery date, your hand-packed box arrives with all of the pre-portioned ingredients you need to create a delicious meal in 30 minutes: If that wild-caught salmon dish calls for three ounces of foraged mushrooms, you'll get exactly that.

Since Plated ships everything directly to you, all you need to do is relax and enjoy the cooking experience. The menu changes weekly, and features only-the-best seasonal ingredients. Get started today!

UPDATE: Plated is extending a great deal to Racked readers. Head this way to check it out.
