Sure, sure, you've been meaning to eat better for ages. But with a wedding on the horizon and countless to-do lists to work through, you might not have all the time in the world to was kale and count your blueberries. So what's a health-minded, kitchen-averse bride to do? Order from one of these five good-for-you food delivery services and leave the chopping, steaming, and roasting to the pros. From detox plans to all-organic smoothies, here are our top picks for the best healthy meal delivery services around.
Need a total diet overhaul before the big day? This company's bride-to-be program has got you covered and then some. Offering a wide array of juices and plant-based foods, Beaming will hook you up with a diet concierge to determine a unique meal plan that will have you looking your best when you walk down the aisle. Even better: They'll design a plan for your groom, too. And, if you sign up 5 people or more, they'll even throw in a discount (hello, early bridesmaid gift!).
Want to eat like Lily Aldridge or Kate Hudson? Thanks to this plant-based, nutrient-dense service, you can. As their website explains, "eating clean has never tasted so good." It's also never looked so chic (the founders were fashion execs and models, respectively). Subscribers can choose from a week-long or weekly delivery service that includes meals like strawberry shortcakes with rose coconut cream, and red beet burgers.
Sometimes, solid food just isn't what you're looking for. Enter, Daily Harvest, pre-portioned cups of flash frozen, ready-to-blend, whole food smoothies. And not to worry if green drinks aren't your thing; the company offers four different types of smoothie options (Fresh & Fruity, Rich & Filling, and two more mostly-green options). Choose from weekly, monthly, or one-time delivery, toss the packets in your freezer and blend at will.
Want to eat incredibly well but still have a little bit of control over your menu? This organic, Brooklyn-based service is for you. Subscribers can choose which from-scratch meals they'd like to have delivered by simply choosing from a menu and adding to an online cart. Deliveries happen twice per week and satisfy nearly every diet under the sun (gluten-free, paleo, dairy-free—you name it, they've got options for you).
The So Cal service may offer three different meal plans (Trim, Train, and A La Carte), but the philosophy behind the recipes remains true for each: Fitness Kitchen LA offers fresh, healthy recipes for four meals per day. With options like paleo almond waffles and slow-roasted salmon with cherry tomatoes, it's easy to understand why this service has taken off.
