There is no compromise here. These meal delivery services are as organic as they get plus FULLY PREPPED. This is a convenience that prioritizes your health.
Let’s start out by putting it all on the front street. I’ve never really been a fan of “meal delivery” in general. It seems like every time I try a service, the meals are either too small, not organic enough, too expensive or just as much work as if I were to do it all myself. Can I get a witness?! But now that we’re trying to go to the grocery store less and access to organics is limited for some, I am revisiting the options and I have to say, I’m so glad I did! After combing through all the current options (which took FOREVER BTW), I found some really notable organic meal delivery services.
Consider this list the crossroads of where organic meets convenience. So I’m talking fully prepped meals delivered straight to your door. No chopping, no sautéing, no cooking, no hassle. I’m also talking LEGIT organic. There’s a big difference between a service that says they prioritize fresh, local, organic and a service that is 100% organic, period. One example of this “gray area” is purchasing grocery store chicken.
Check out all the ways companies twist labels and words on chicken labels plus what to consider when buying chicken from the grocery store. Anyways…
This list includes some of the most organic options that are currently available IMO. And, in light of what’s happening around the world, many of these companies are offering some worthwhile deals and giving back to local communities which I’m excited to highlight here as well.
Nutrition for Longevity started in September 2019 and let me just start with this; they do EVERYTHING RIGHT. This service is 100% plant-based, 100% organic and based on the Longevity diet. It’s meals that are tailored to deliver 100% of a person’s daily required nutrition to help boost the immune system, metabolism, and overall health.
Nutrition for Longevity owns its own 40-acre farm in New Jersey which will officially be certified organic later this year with 100% of their meal delivery produce being sourced from their own farm. Right now they are supplementing with local organic vendors when needed.
Currently, they are delivering fully prepped vegan + gluten-free breakfast and lunch options. Dinner is sent as “ingredients to prep” BUT soon they will be offering fully prepped dinner options as well. There is also a pescatarian option. You can read more about my experience with Nutrition for Longevity meal plans here.
