    1. Highway to Well {Meals 2 Glo}

    highway-2-well-meals

    This is a food delivery service created by Tara Roscoli, and it’s one of the most delicious meal plans ever — mean it. Plant-based, organic meals that aren’t just lean and detoxifying but also delicious {think: coconut milk + homemade granola deliciousness and veggie soups and so many other items!}. However,  the price tag is $450 for 5 days of meals, so it’s a little pricey {but so worth it}. Meals are delivered throughout the week {3x} so they’re extra fresh {and can even be delivered to your work place!}.

    Organic? Yes.

    Vegan options? Yes – everything is plant-based.

    Customizable? The menu is announced weekly, so unless you have dietary restrictions or preferences, it’s set.

    2. Total Nutrition Kitchen

    You’ve probably already passed by Total Nutrition Kitchen on a walk to the PATH downtown. But, the fun part is that they offer “clean” meals that can be picked up or delivered to your house. Each run you $10-13, and are good for breakfast/lunch/dinner {their stuff ranges from shakes to protein pancakes to wraps to steak and low carb dinners}. All of the meals are prepared fresh, and the labels count the calories, carbs, fat, and protein so you know exactly how much you’re getting. Convenience is key, and being able to pick up meals is quite the unique luxury. The one drawback: Meals are not organic, so if you’re into that make note.

    Organic? No.

    Vegan options? Very limited. They offer a veggie burger and some protein muffins that are vegan.

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}. Think ginger and chicken salad, date-braised chicken leg with sweet potato hash, and other yummy meals. They’ve also started to offer a bunch of vegan meals, so you can skip the meat altogether.
