Save Your Time From Food Preparation With Our Meal Prep for College Students

Sign Up


There’s a popular idea that college students should be able to get their food from whatever the food hall in their dormitory is dishing out or should not have to pay too much for takeout every night. The idea of this is certainly something we reject at Plant Sumo, and we strongly disagree with it.

Having the ability to prepare healthy, nutritious meals at home is an essential part of early adulthood, and there are meal prep delivery services that make this possible to do.

Over the past few years, meal prep delivery services have surged in popularity, but not every service is well suited to the demands of a collegiate lifestyle. It is common to encounter those that are either too complicated or bland or designed more for busy families than for students.

Cut back on the pizzas, burgers, ice cream, and other fast food takeouts for a while. Try eating something healthy now and then. Believe us. Your body will love it.

Contrary to what you think, we don’t offer meals that taste like raw vegetables– we offer meals that are tasty, warm, and fulfilling to eat.

The Advantages of Meal Prepping

College students need meal prepping services more than ever. It helps you budget your time, money, and even productivity throughout your studies. More specifically, meal prepping can help you with the following:

Save Time and Money

There are more valuable things you might be doing with your time than cooking. When you plan your meals in advance, you may avoid skipping meals even if you’re too busy or sleepy to prepare.

More than dining out or buying perishable foods you’ll have to toss away after a few days, meal planning services like Plant Sumo’s may help you save money.

Maintaining a Balanced and Healthy Lifestyle at School

Approximately one-third of UK college students exhibit risky eating behaviour, such as excessive snacking, fast food and consuming only moderate to low amounts of fruits and vegetables. You need to stop eating that way.

Get your body feeling great. All-natural ingredients and little spice go into the preparation of the nutritious student fare. Plant Sumo ensures that the ingredients in your food are as close to their original states as possible.

Considerations When Availing Meal Prep Services

Your criteria in selecting a meal delivery service will differ slightly from those of a recent college graduate or working adult. There are a few factors to bear in mind before making a choice.

Compare and Contrast: Meal Kits vs Prepared Meals

This one’s crucial. To what extent of a kitchen do you have access to? Do you enjoy cooking or try to avoid it like the plague? Meal delivery services provide customers with freshly cooked, completely prepared meals. Only a refrigerator, microwave, and cutlery are strictly needed to be stored and prepared. When possible, we prefer to eat these sorts of meals that have been prepared freshly.

Meal kits aren’t like other packaged foods. The kits, pre-measured to perfection, are sent to your door once you’ve selected your desired recipes. Because they are perishable, you’ll need a refrigerator or other suitable means of preserving the ingredients’ freshness.

Competence in the Kitchen

If you’re just starting in the kitchen, it’s best to start with pre-packaged meals with few ingredients, simple instructions, and delicious results.

Look for kits that are a little more advanced in their ingredients and technique if you feel confident in the kitchen and want to move beyond basic dinners. These kits are a fantastic way to try new things in the kitchen without breaking the bank or wasting a lot of food.

Frequency of Deliveries

If you have a full-sized kitchen and reside off-campus, you may not mind making bulk purchases monthly. A provider that makes more regular or smaller batches of deliveries is preferable when dealing with less spacious quarters. We decided on Factor for our college dining needs because their meal boxes may be purchased with as low as four servings.


Meal planning for college might be pricey, but so can dining out every meal or buying foods you won’t eat. If you’re on a tighter budget, meal delivery services might be a terrific option.

Alternative Dietary Needs

Do you just eat plant-based foods? Keto? Paleo? Counting calories and carbohydrates only? Perhaps you have a food allergy. It’s been my experience that certain businesses accommodate customers with dietary restrictions while others are not.

If you have food allergies, it’s a good idea to research the restaurant to see how they manage common allergens and how many options they provide each week.

Some Other Tips and Tricks

We’ve also researched additional strategies that you might find helpful as you begin your meal-prep adventure.

Create a plan for the week’s meals and stick to it.

This facilitates planning ahead and acquiring only those items you need from the supermarket.

You may save time by preparing all the meals at once.

Every Sunday, all you need is two hours. You may go about your week without worrying about food since you can just reheat the meals as needed.

Put money into some decent containers for storing food.

For convenience and freshness, stock up on food storage containers that can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
