Get Wine & Food Delivered to Your House Like a Lazy Health Queen
Healthy eating: it looks easy on Instagram, but IRL it can be hard af.
It’s not because you have chocolate cravings or are addicted to cheese (okay, maybe sometimes), it’s because you have 30,000 things to do in a day, and sometimes meal-prepping doesn’t make the cut. If you don’t have time to grocery shop or make your own meals, you’re stuck buying food that’s rarely ever as healthy as it claims to be, plus costs triple the price.
But businesses are finally catching on to the fact that busy betches need healthy options too. Here are some delivery services that will help you eat clean so that you can save the getting dirty part for the dance floor–or the bedroom.
1. Blue Apron
Blue Apron has nothing to do with a blue apron and everything to do with making it easy to cook when you’re always busy. Basically, they send a recipe, plus all the ingredients you need, in a box directly to your house. All you have to do is cook, which is the fun part, unlike making your way through Trader Joe’s on a Monday night. Take a look at their recipes and we have a feeling you’ll be intrigued. Plus, they offer $30 for your first week, making it about $30 total which is likely already what you spend on groceries.
If you’re on-the-go 24/7, you’ve likely realized how difficult it is to stay healthy. Take a tip from your Grandma and bring snacks with you everywhere you go, seriously. The thing is, lots of “healthy” snacks are not always that healthy, and eating fruit all the time doesn’t always cut it. Graze is a subscription service dedicated to healthy snacking. Another cool thing is that the snacks are portioned, so you don’t go HAM on a Costco sized bag of trail-mix. Better yet, the first box is free!
3. Hello Fresh
Similar to Blue Apron, Hello Fresh does the shopping while you do the cooking, but their recipes are a bit more traditional. Plus, if you’re vegetarian, they offer cheaper options.
4. Direct Wines
Okay, wine may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think “healthy,” but red wine actually has plenty of health benefits. At least, we’ll keep telling ourselves that. Direct Wines delivers wines that fit your taste right to your doorstep, ensuring that your liquor cabinet will always be stocked on snowy days like these, and that you’ll never have to carry heavy stuff home from the liquor store.
