Busy Bee Organics Food Delivery

This Jersey City-based organic meal delivery service and brick-and-mortar in the Heights has come in seriously clutch in the last few months — delivering organic, gluten-free, and customizable meals to Hoboken and Jersey City on a weekly basis. All of the food is organic or local, in-season, and made with love {Editor’s note: as corny as that sounds — it’s true!}.

Graze and Braise Food Delivery

G&B is a delivery service that is local to Jersey City {where its commercial kitchen is located}. Graze and Braise delivers meals that can be ordered on Fast Boy Delivery {a la carte} OR pre-ordered so you don’t have to even think twice about it. The meals also center around the Paleo lifestyle, which is a great way to slim down {or get some delicious comfort food} without feeling super guilty {please note: The meals are higher in fat than some, but still very healthy and organic}. Paleo is similar to the Whole 30, in that you’re only eating foods that are natural in our environment {with no additives}.
