Blue Apron announces a new collaboration with the American Diabetes Association (ADA) to further expand the meal provider’s selection of recipes for people on vegetarian, carb-conscious, plant or Mediterranean and diabetes-Friendly diets.

The diabetes-friendly recipes will meet ADA’s Nutrition Guidance by emphasizing fresh produce and lean protein while reducing added sugar, creating a wholesome selection of meals approved by the nutrition experts at the ADA.

Beginning at the end of this month, Blue Apron will feature at least two diabetes-friendly recipes every week on its Signature Two-Serving menu. And recipes will be regularly incorporated on its Four-Serving Menu starting next year.

“For many people living with diabetes, knowing what to eat is one of the most challenging and critical parts of their diabetes management,” said Lauren Grosz, executive director, American Diabetes Association.

“We are excited about our new collaboration with Blue Apron and this exciting opportunity to show that ‘diabetes-friendly’ meals can be exciting,” she added.

The new diabetes-friendly recipes include meals such as Spicy Salmon & Orange Relish with Salsa Verde Couscous and Quinoa & Vegetable Fried Rice with Sunny Side-Up Eggs & Peanuts, available to order starting now through Blue Apron’s website and mobile app.

“We are pleased to collaborate with the ADA to offer new diabetes-friendly recipes that appeal to so many consumers, including over 30 million people living with diabetes in the U.S. and those interested in general health and wellness,” said Linda Kozlowski, CEO, Blue Apron.

“This collaboration is one part of our commitment to offering diverse and delicious meals that suit a wide variety of lifestyles and health preferences without sacrificing flavor. Our recipes, whether diabetes-friendly, carb-conscious, or plant-forward, are nutritious options you truly want to eat,” she added.

In addition to the new diabetes-friendly meals, Blue Apron expanded its Signature Two-Serving menu nationally to offer 11 recipes each week including a broader selection of recipes that cater to a healthy lifestyle and a variety of dietary preferences.

The new recipes include labels such as “Vegetarian”, “Carb Conscious”, “Plant-Forward”, “Mediterranean,” and “500 Calories or Less”, making it easier for customers to find and select recipes for a healthy lifestyle.

At least half of the recipes Blue Apron offers each week on its Signature Two-Serving plan will feature one or more of these labels, as part of its ongoing commitment to delivering balance and discovery––through a variety of ingredients, cuisines, preparation times, and meals that range from nutritious to more indulgent.
