Beach grillout, anyone?

Just because you're away on vacation, it doesn't mean you don't have to give up on cooking — or spend time you could be relaxing at the grocery store. Meal kit delivery services have skyrocketed in popularity, and they aren't only available at home.

If you've got a vacation (or two) planned this summer, and if you're looking for an option that's easier than heading to the store on a trip but cheaper than always eating out, meal kits services are hoping to be your answer.

Especially if you're staying in a vacation rental, this can offer some help with fresh meals. Here are a few options to try.

Marley Spoon

Martha Stewart's Marley Spoon offers seasonal menus, like summer chicken and steak kebabs to put on the grill, and you can get them delivered to where you're staying.

Meal kit delivery services tend to focus on the healthy: Let this other company do the picking, so you don't accidentally find yourself in the cookie aisle.

HelloFresh is no different, and includes recipes with lots of vegetables and other healthy ingredients.

Blue Apron

Blue Apron also offers meal kits, ready for your kitchen, whether that's at home or the beach.
