Chefgood vs Youfoodz: Delivery
Chefgood offer delivery to your workplace or your home. Each delivery will come in ice packs, so if you aren’t home when your delivery arrives – the food won’t spoil. When you get your first delivery, you automatically opt into weekly deliveries, so if you have a busy life, you can rest assured you won’t have to worry about the grocery shopping. Your order renews every Wednesday and you will receive your order between Saturday – Tuesday. You also get SMS reminders about your orders, so you can keep track of when your next delivery will be.
For me personally, I found that Chefgood would deliver to my area which being regional QLD, Lower Wonga was amazing as we are often outside most food delivery service area. Check your area >
Youfoodz offer same-day delivery in popular areas, however if you live in a more rural area, you may find that Youfoodz don’t deliver to you. Similar to Chefgood, Youfoodz also have the option to have a recurring order, however with Youfoodz, you can do weekly, fortnightly or even monthly! Whatever suits you. There was limited information about delivery on the Youfoodz website.
When it came to ordering online, Chefgood provided an easier process when it came to organising a delivery, I actually found when using Youfoodz the website would keep glitching and I couldn’t actually make an order. Youfoodz also don’t deliver to my area, but I can find their meals at our local petrol station if I did want some though. Chefgood has an easier process, especially with the SMS notification, making it a lot easier to keep track of where my delivery is and when to expect its arrival.

This one was really tricky to decide! Honestly, they both had great positives when it came to cost and have different models. However, Youfoodz offered more range when it came to their bundles, and some of these bundles were slightly cheaper than Chefgood.

Chefgood vs Youfoodz: Product Range
What type of product range does Chefgood & Youfoodz have? Do they cater for different dietary requirements or what about the fussy eaters?
You can select from two different main meal plans – every day & weight loss with Chefgood. Under these main meal plans, you can select different dietary requirements such as:
- No added gluten
- No added dairy
Each meal has a 7-9 day shelf life, and snacks will last longer than that. All of Chefgood meals are vacuum sealed, so they are designed to have a longer shelf life. Please note that the raw salad ingredients will have a shorter shelf life.
Youfoodz have quite a large range of products, including snacks, drinks, breakfast, lunch and dinners. Within this range, you can also select from the following based on your dietary requirements:
- No Gluten Added
- No Nuts Added
- No Eggs Added
- No Dairy Added
Youfoodz also let you control how many calories you would like to have in each of your meals. This customisable search option makes it really easy to find meals that will fit your goal calorie intake.
Under the calorie selection, the following options were available:
- Clean – meals that are 350 calories or under
- Balanced – meals that are between 350 – 450 calories and snacks that are between 175 – 250 calories
- Relaxed – meals that are over 450 calories and snacks that are over 250 calories
- Custom – custom select how many calories you would like per meal
Youfoodz have such a large product range, they had to be the winner for sure! They have really set out to make sure that those with specific diets or calories can still achieve their goals while eating yummy food. I love the idea of the custom calorie selector, it makes it easy and simple. However Youfoodz lost points for not having vegan options, you would have to select Vegetarian and minus Eggs and Dairy to get a listing, Chefgood has that covered however. This brings us to the next part of our comparison.

Youfoodz had a very limited range of vegan meals, actually I only found 1!
- Loaded lentil Lasagne – 396 calories
This one was a pretty obvious winner, definitely Chefgood! So if you are looking for a meal delivery service that has vegan meals, have a look at Chefgood! Their range did have some variety, which was great! Vegan meals, as well as meal delivery friendly ones can be hard to come by. It’s disappointing that Youfoodz don’t have more of a friendly vegan range, but maybe they are slowly working on it. Who knows!
It really depends on what you are looking for in a meal delivery service. Overall, I think that both Chefgood and Youfoodz have positives and negatives. If you are looking for vegan friendly options, I definitely recommend checking out Chefgood, but if you are looking for variety in meals, that can span through your entire day – I would recommend Youfoodz. Both are great, and can make like just a little bit easier.
