Healthy Meal Deliveries

One of the most difficult aspects of weight loss and/or achieving good nutritional intake is the time it takes to research, create menus, shop, prepare and cook the food! I am frequently asked by busy people for recommendations on delicious and nutritious food delivery programs. We scoured the globe and tried many. These came out on top. Terrific for vitality, weight loss and ease, these food delivery services help manifest a specific short term goal or support you if cooking is not your thing.

Love,

gp

Cook!, San Francisco

Cook! offers meals that are free from gluten, dairy, corn, soy, yeast, meat, eggs, shellfish and nightshades to those looking to either detox or just maintain healthy eating. The meals are delivered to your door twice a week and are either ready-to-eat or take just a few minutes of prep time. The portion-controlled meals are great for staying healthy without too much fuss. They also have a customizable option, which allows you to choose if you'd only like dinners, or lunches delivered to your office, etc.

The Food Program by Tracy Anderson, LA

My business partner Tracy Anderson has launched her food program, developed by one of our favorite chefs. It's amazing for anyone looking to lose weight, reset bad eating habits or just eat really well on a busy schedule. The ingredients are super-quality and fresh (local and organic, whenever possible) and blast-chilled right after preparation to lock in key nutrients. With a special emphasis on sustainable weight loss, the meals focus on high-nutrition-to-calorie foods to keep you full and satisfied longer. Delivered six days a week for a complete seven days of food, it’s a super easy way to change the way you eat for the better.

Sample Menu
Here’s an idea of what you’ll get on The Food Program. The menu includes some lean protein but there's a Vegetarian Plan as well.

Breakfast
Tracy’s Wellness Shake

Snack
Cheesy Kale Chips seasoned with nutritional Yeast, Himalayan sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper

Lunch
Large Greens Salad: Mixed greens, tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, julienned carrots, fresh ginger

Snack

Dinner

Dessert
