"Lighter is like having a personal nutritionist who does the grocery shopping & brings you foods that you'll love." Caroline
Your week of Lighter deliciousness might look like:
"EAT LIKE YOU LOVE YOURSELF. MOVE LIKE YOU LOVE YOURSELF.
SPEAK LIKE YOU LOVE YOURSELF. ACT LIKE YOU LOVE YOURSELF."
Our mission is to challenge the Standard American Diet (SAD) and celebrate real food.
We're making the sustainable, healthy choice the delicious, convenient and affordable choice. We are helping folks save time, stick to a budget and still have a Lighter footprint with plant-based whole foods.
Our co-founder Micah knows what it's like to feed a family on a budget and has worked her magic so that each meal is between $4.00-$5.80. This means you get great nutrition information, delicious recipes and your groceries delivered while saving money every week.
"We don’t have to stare at each other at 6 o’clock in the kitchen and ask ‘what should we eat?’ Lighter’s made it a no brainer."Pulin & Christina
"Lighter has given me extra time with my son in the evening.

"Lighter is my gift to me. My gift to the planet. My gift to the animals. Every week."Leah
"More time outside. Less time at the store. Love it, love it, love it.""Kelsey & Matt
When Micah and I first met at a Boston coffee shop in 2013, we quickly discovered that we shared a life mission to fix our broken food system. I had shed 45lbs, become an attorney and was deeply involved in food policy when we met. Micah, an ultra marathoner and mama, had finished a graduate nutrition program. Hours after finishing our coffee, Micah and I left the shop as partners in crime (well, business) to ignite our revolution, Lighter. With Lighter we were determined to use the power of technology to take enormous leaps where only small steps were once possible.
Over the years we've realized that big leaps are possible. Through inspired software, we can help our friends all over the country break the cycle of self-defeating diets. We can enable families to enjoy time together on Sundays instead of doing annoying grocery errands. We can rescue loving, ambitious parents from making the tough choice between food that is convenient and food that nourishes the family.
Over the last year we've gathered an incredible team of fierce women who feel just as strongly about this mission as we do. I am so proud of their tenacity and am deeply in love with this journey. This is our beautiful beginning. Thank you for being part of it.
We love hearing from you!
