Remember back in the day when a Findus lasagne and a slice of white bread was a pretty average quick meal? Those days are long gone and that kind of meal is definitely not good for you. However, the young man of today is hustling hard in the city and hitting it hard at the gym – leaving very little time in the day for the kitchen. We all recognise the importance of diet and fitness but the lack of spare time is hindering our health and wellbeing. These are the young free professionals who’re yet to embark on starting a family. Spare a thought for those with kids who know that the luxuries of spare time to yourself is a true rarity. This is exactly why clean eating delivery services are booming right now. They’re filling the gap in our need for delicious highly nutritious meals in a time-poor demanding way of life. Here we try some of the best and dish out our verdicts.
This personalised gourmet fitness food delivery service puts your unique needs first, taking the stress out of healthy eating by delivering bespoke meals direct to front door. Founded by aesthetic bodybuilder, athlete and entrepreneur Amar Lodhia, Fit Kitchen was designed with one simple goal – to make life easier for people struggling to balance busy lifestyles with their training and nutrition goals. Fit Kitchen’s unique system develops a deep understanding of each customer to ensure meal suggestions don’t just match their macros; they’re also tailored to their taste buds. Our delivery was in almost non-branded tubs, giving a feel of true home cooking. But it was soon clear that the entire focus of their service must be in the food product itself. The meals and shakes could be prepared in minutes and were truly delicious.
Clean and wholesome gourmet meals, cooked and frozen before being courier-delivered to your front door. The big box of individually wrapped Everdine meals arrive in very cool packaging with neat little booklets explaining where the food is from and who cooked them. Eating clean is truly made simple, especially with each being ready to eat with a microwave and 10 minutes. All their meats and fish are sustainably sourced and they use only the best ingredients from suppliers they know well and who meet their strict quality standards. Their chefs Matt and Viresh trained in Michelin-starred restaurants, and with such cool packaging and such imaginative meal options, Everdine gets a big thumbs up from us. Give them a try with our exclusive discount code AF1MENSWEARSTYLE to get £20 off your first delivery.
Did you know Paleo based diets are rapidly increasing in popularity, with increasingly international level athletes and coaches basing their nutrition around paleo principles? The biggest killers in the western world today are all diseases directly related to a poor diet. In addition, physical performance is heavily dependent upon diet and nutrition. To get the best out of your body you need to be mindful that you’re eating good quality, nutrient dense foods in the right form. The Paleo Chef meals are created by a former Oxo Tower chef and Harley Street nutritionist, and arrive in clear vacuum packed bags which looks a little strange – as though you’re an astronaut, but the dinning experience achieved from a pan of boiling water and 10 spare minutes is mind blowing. It’s true culinary genius with intense flavours. We really enjoyed trialling this service and we’re now paleo converts for life.
