Everyone seems to be busy these days. It doesn’t seem to matter whether you’re a student, professional, stay-at-home… everyone is running around in the rat race of life. When I lived in Boston, I would have a delivery service called PeaPod deliver my groceries typically on my postcall day bc I knew that’s when I’d be home. But today, delivery services have improved! I’ll go through each of my favorites:
For the person or couple or family who likes the idea of cooking and/or cooking together, Gobble makes it super easy to whip together a delicious meal that takes all the menu planning, grocery shopping, portion controlling out of it. It’s my go-to date night meal.
Freshly is a more Paleo focused meal that offers single serving portions of breakfast, lunch, or dinner that is super quick and convenient! Some of the best parts about this delivery service: high quality protein, no refined sugars or artificial sweeteners, always gluten free, low-glycemic carbohydrates, and nutrient-rich veggies. Need I say more?
FRESH AND FIT
Fresh and Fit meals are more a local delivery food service that is super convenient and served in single serving containers. It’s all natural and organic, seasonal, and comes from local, sustainable farms. It’s more veggie intensive and they taste delicious!
Daily Harvest is a wonderful way to blend up healthy stuff that’s super convenient and perfect for that sweet tooth craving! Usually I’ll whip one of these up in the morning — either with water or coconut water or almond milk. The directions are on each cup. Oftentimes I’ll add my own protein powder, chia seeds, flax seed, etc. to boost my nutrition. These shakes taste delicious — almost like a decadent milkshake (but one that’s actually healthy and good for you!). So go ahead and have one for dessert!
*** UPDATE March 2017 ***
This is now our go-to meal planner for the week! We love the nutritious aspect of this quick throw together meal delivery kit. It’s faster to prep than Blue Apron, but slightly longer to make than Gobble. The sunbasket ingredients are organic and as expected have a longer shelf life in the fridge. The recipes are super delicious and diverse. I prefer a paleo delivery kit and this one delivers!!
