6 Meal Delivery Services That Are Both Nutritious and Delicious

Summer is the perfect time to get your body back on track with a healthy-eating reset.

With the official start of summer just shy of a week away, it’s a great time to consider a nutrition reset. After all, summer means overindulging on vacations, plenty of barbecues and cooling off with so much ice cream. This is not about doing a crash diet but more about setting you up to get your body back on track so these new healthy habits can stay with you for the long term.

Imbalances in your diet can affect everything from sleep, digestion and energy levels. Paying attention to what you put in your body can also help manage bloating, impact skin clarity and improve overall health. The important thing to remember is eating nutritious, clean meals does not mean you need to sacrifice taste or your time cooking. Meal delivery services are a great way to take the thinking out of meal prep, but with so many out there, it’s hard to know which will also be delicious. Below are six companies that range from plant-based like Sakara Life and Daily Harvest to more traditional food delivery options that let you pick what you want to eat with any restrictions or requests.

Sakara Life

This signature program is available for up to three meals a day, five days a week and starts at $53 a week.

Kroma’s five-day reset is great for someone if they are looking to do exactly that – reset. The Signature 5-Day Reset includes 50 total food and beverages (10 servings per day) and costs $395. There is an added cost for a vegan option, but all meals do not use cane sugar, fillers, dairy, gluten, GMOs and lectins. The instructions are super easy to follow since everything is labeled by day and in numerical order. Much of the reset includes Superfoods (and Adaptogens) because these nutrient-rich foods and super herbs are the most powerful preventative “medicine” known to improve overall health and well-being as well as promote hormonal balance and fight inflammation. The founders spent three years testing food combinations to make sure taste isn’t sacrificed and worked with top nutritionists, herbalists, chefs and wellness gurus to ensure the products adapt to a person’s body chemistry. A morning starts with a Beauty Matcha followed by a Super Porridge for breakfast. Lunch could be one of the bone or veggie broths and dinner is similar but can be customized with protein and veggies as needed.

Meant to mimic fasting, Prolon has gone through clinical trials at the University of Southern California and is patented for providing healthy aging. The five-day meal program delivers scientifically researched micro- and macro-nutrients in specific quantities and combinations that will leave you satisfied and nourished but will still have the body thinking you are in a fasting state. The benefit of this state is that it promotes cellular renewal, supports metabolic health, enhances clarity and performance and kickstarts removing fat while protecting lean body mass. The soups provided can be anything from butternut squash quinoa to black bean or minestrone. One thing to note, if you are not a fan of olives, this may not be the reset for you!
