Sometimes—well, most times—there’s not enough hours in the day to make dinner, let alone breakfast and lunch. Thankfully, these six local meal delivery services are here to the rescue.
Taking a paleo approach to food, Power Supply turns to independent local chefs to craft good-for-you dishes like the Auntie Em’s spicy chicken salad with purple cabbage slaw and the wild-caught salmon with bok choy and cauliflower rice.
Endorsed by big name actors like Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Zac Efron, Z.E.N. (Zero Effort Nutrition) Foods offers six different meal plans ranging from those looking to lose weight, eat veg, or want a rejuvenating juice cleanse. Sample dinner options include chicken tikka masala with brown rice, dahl, and a mango chutney as well as a baked turkey with cornmeal stuffing, cranberries, and low-fat gravy.
Go for gluten-free lunch options at Freshology like the grilled coconut shrimp salad with a sesame jalapeño sprinkle and a Thai peanut vinaigrette or the barbecue pork salad with zucchini roasted corn and a lime-ranch dressing. Or, opt for other customizable healthy fares geared towards those who need low-cholesterol or lactose-free dishes.
Offering meals that are almost virtually free of gluten, soy, dairy, and refined sugar, Paleta users can tuck into dishes like braised grass-fed short ribs with celery root puree in a cabernet sauce or a roasted golden beet salad with a citrus vinaigrette. Famous fans of Paleta include Jaime King and Jessica Biel.
Husband-and-wife/chef duo extraordinaire Craig and Paola Petrella are behind Two Peas, Inc, which delivers daily meals every night, like gluten-free French toast with house-made berry syrup along with a farmer’s market broiled veggie lasagna.
Kooshi Gourmet serves up three different meal plans ranging from active (two meals a day), wellness (three meals a day), and family (based on quantity needed). Mouth-watering options include Italian turkey meatballs with garlic green beans as well as the grilled organic herb chicken with roasted sweet potato.
