The world of healthy food delivery is moving in leaps and bounds. As our schedules get busier and our work hours get longer, the time to menu plan, shop, prep and cook can be limiting some weeks. Never fear, healthy options are near! I have scouted out some companies who have your food needs covered. Whether you are after your weekly supply of fruit and vegetables, organic meats and grocery items, a one stop shop of ingredients and recipes to get you through your weekly dinners or pre-cooked food that only requires reheating, these companies have options galore. It’s great to see tasty, health conscious food available and the best part is the flexibility. You are not locked into any contracts, so should you need to just make one off purchases, or amend your subscription based on the goings on in your life week to week, you have the control. With every intention we may have to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle, sometimes life and commitments get in the way, so it’s great to see these forward thinking online business’ assisting to make our lives a little more convenient.
Every week, the Hello Fresh chefs create amazing “idiot proof” recipes for you that are easy to prepare. The meals are interesting, balanced, simple, varied and can be cooked in about 30 minutes. With healthy eating being the main aim, each meal is typically between 500-750 calories. Select your box (either the classic box including meat and fish or the vegetarian box), how many meals you need that week (3 or 5), how many people your meals need to feed (2, 4 or 6) and Hello Fresh do the shopping of ingredients for you. The pricing includes delivery and boxes are delivered once a week. How user friendly is that! The menu items look mouth watering, fresh and healthy. This is a fantastic idea for those who are limited on time to plan and shop, but still enjoy cooking and eating well.
This online company prides itself on the old fashioned service it’s been giving to its customers for the past 20 years. Doorstep Organics goes beyond the different boxes of fruit and veg that they offer (and there are MANY to choose from). You also can purchase produce individually, along with healthy snacks, dairy, meat, household items and flowers. The delivery fees are very reasonable and areas include most Sydney locations, Gosford and the Central Coast, Wollongong, Dapto, Albion Park, Kiama, Gerringong & Berry. Great, fresh produce to inspire your healthy cooking throughout the week.
Perfect for those people who are very time poor, Gourmet Dinner Service does everything for you and all you need to do is heat and serve! The fresh produce is locally sourced, preservative and additive free and cooked by professional chefs. All meals have been reviewed and are nutritionist and dietician endorsed. I’m very aware of what I put in my body, so my favourite feature of this website is the ingredient and nutritional information they provide for each menu item. Meals aren’t limited to main meals though…also on the menu are side dishes, desserts, kids meals and cocktail food. They also offer gluten free, vegetarian, low carb and low fat options for those with dietary requirements. If you like to eat well and either don’t have time or don’t enjoy cooking (or both!), this is for you.
I am really impressed with the quality of food delivery and options available online, no matter what your lifestyle. Whether you live independently, with a partner or have a family, there’s something for everyone and gone are the days where healthy eating was time consuming and involved a lot of preparation.
Happy healthy eating!
