We all know that lunchtime is the most important part of any working person’s day, so it’s pretty annoying when you find yourself stuck for options, or are stuck between choosing one of many bland supermarket meal deals. So why not use a delivery service instead to satisfy your lunchtime cravings and even better, one that provides tasty food that’s also good for you. Check out our top pics of healthy lunches delivered to your desk below!
Little pots of goodness
If you’re looking to avoid the hidden calories of supermarket meal deals, then why not try out a healthy option with Potage. This company’s motto is ‘Eating well, made easy’ and offers handmade seasonal pots, using a balance of organic meat and eggs and veg from the local market. The best part is it that the food is delivered cold, so that you can heat it up at a time that suits you – perfect for when you’re about to chow down and then your boss asks you where that report is!
A reworking of the classic lunchbox
It’s not exactly practical at work to leave your desk for an hour just to prep your super healthy lunch. So why not let someone else do all the work instead? Founded by two alum of Leith’s Cookery School and intent on providing healthy grub for office workers, Lunch Bxd sample boxes include baked falafel with a jewelled pomegranate, sumac and parsley couscous salad with green spinach hummus and a chocolate coconut milk shake!
After a morning of long phone calls and sifting through emails, it’s good to get a bit of a boost at lunch time, and it’s even better when it’s not from a chemical-laden fizzy drink. The Good Life Eatery provides clean and tasty juices, alongside superfood salads and wraps, which they can bring straight to your desk via Deliveroo. We definitely recommend their Goodness bowl, which is made up of quinoa tabbouleh, zucchini fettucine, sweet potato falafel and avocado butter…so just a tad healthier than your Tesco chicken wrap.
Healthy lunches don’t always have to be cold, you can get also get some great hot food delivered, that won’t do any damage to your waistline! Based in Shoreditch, this ‘fast food’ café offers up hot dishes including black quinoa risotto and crab cakes…a worthy rival for to your colleague’s plastic looking cheeseburger.
Nutritious Indian flavour
Indian takeaways are known for being calorific, but there are better Indian cuisine options. If you want to feel like you’re having a cheat meal without actually having one, than give Dhaba Lane a try. Offering new menus every day, this restaurant (which also delivers) is packed full of savoury soups, nutritious salads and light curries!
Replace fat rolls with sushi rolls
Ok, so maybe sushi isn’t the newest nutritious snack on the block, but it’s definitely worked its way up to becoming a firm favourite among the foodie crowd. One of the best lunchtime sushi providers is Mori. They offer a whole host of treats, including mixed platters, noodle pots, and edamame. This is definitely going to leave you feeling satisfied at lunchtime, without any of the fatty-foods guilt!
