The Best Healthy Meal Delivery Services | SLMan
When it comes to healthy eating, meal prep is one of those things you know you should be doing, but the reality of cooking endless chicken breasts and brown rice soon wears thin. Fortunately, a whole host of companies can do the hard work for you. Here’s SLMan’s pick of the best…

Best For Gym Fiends: MunchFit

MunchFit offers nutritionally balanced meals ideal for the religious gym goer. With an emphasis on restaurant-quality meals that complement an active lifestyle, this is the plan for fitness junkies chasing supercharged results. Whichever plan you choose – fat loss, maintenance, lean gains or plant based – its meals are made using fresh, seasonal ingredients, sustainable products, nutrient-packed superfoods and top-quality protein. You’ll find MunchFit meals in the likes of Equinox, Barry’s Bootcamp, BXR and Soho House, so rest assured this is five-star nutrition.

Price Point: From £7.49 per meal.


Best For The Macro Obsessed: Fresh Fitness Food

Offering pre-prepared, performance-geared nutrition, Fresh Fitness Food is for those who take their gains seriously. Start by choosing your personal goal, then talk to an in-house nutritionist, personalise your plan and you’re good to go. As close as you can get to cooking your own food without actually having to cook, there’s the option to exclude certain ingredients and each meal comes fully labelled with its macronutrients (i.e. protein, carbohydrates and fats). Food is freshly prepared by an expert team of chefs the day before delivery, and all meals are gluten and refined sugar-free. Within London and the M25 only.

Price Point: From £23 per day.


Best For Healthy Lunches: Key To Food

If you’re working from home and falling out of love with your daily lunches (or are back in the office and bored stiff of sandwiches), Key To Food’s lunch-only package won’t disappoint. Varied and packed with flavour, expect everything from teriyaki grilled salmon with black rice to jerk chicken with rice, peas and satay plantain. These meals taste indulgent, but there’s the option to choose your portion size if you’re looking to keep the calories in check. Key To Food is flexible too – think two-day taster packs as well as lunch and dinner-only options, transform plans and one-off five-day packages.

Price Point: Five days of lunches will set you back £7.70 per meal, while longer-term plans, such as four weeks of lunches and dinners, are priced from £340.


Best For Something Gourmet: Pure Package

The Rolls Royce of healthy food deliveries, Pure Package is an industry favourite, renowned for its good food and nutritional credentials. Whether you’re looking to lose a few pounds, set better eating habits or want to try the Paleo diet, there’s a programme for everyone. Your journey starts with a phone consultation with a nutritionist, and meals are delivered daily so there’s no need to own an American-style fridge to store a week’s worth of food. The team are also on hand 24/7 for any queries you may have, though your daily menu comes with detailed instructions on heating and ingredients.

Price Point: Prices for a three-day reset start from £49.95 per day.


Best For Big Appetites: Tastily

When it comes to variety and decent-sized portions, Tastily gets our vote. The concept is simple: choose between four and 12 meals from an extensive menu (think beef massaman, prawn pesto pasta or chicken katsu) before 12pm on a Friday for delivery the following Wednesday. All meals come with a seven-day shelf-life and take just three minutes in the microwave. Standard meals are around 500 calories, but there’s the option to upgrade to larger meals (600-700 calories), and each dish has at least three servings of veggies.

Price Point: From £6 per meal. Enter SLMAN20 at checkout for 20% off your first week and 15% off your second week.


Best For Fuss-Free Clean Eating: No1 Food Prep

No1 Food Prep avoids sugars, refined carbs and other nasties to deliver home-cooked meals to keep you on track. Whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian or meat lover, there’s a programme to suit you and portions can be sized up or down. Working with sustainable producers (meat comes from the Queen’s butcher of choice) and seasonal produce, No1 Food Prep strikes the balance between quality and quantity. One you’ve tried the food – think banana and salted caramel pancakes, jerk chicken thighs and black bean tacos – you won’t look at a supermarket ready meal again. 

Price Point: Meals start from £5.20 and subscriptions from £44.


Best For A Green Option: Detox Kitchen

If your diet could do with a few more greens but you’re not prepared to skimp on meat or measly portions, Detox Kitchen’s Active Maintain package is worth a try. The cult London deli’s highest-calorie plan is designed to leave you feeling light, energised and nourished, as well as supporting your workouts and aiding recovery. Two-thousand calories per day will get you breakfast, lunch, dinner, pudding, three small snacks and one evening drink – dishes include goji granola with oat milk, chicken salad with wasabi dressing and prawn ramen. If you’re looking for a more flexible option, the Detox Kitchen also offers Fridge Fills, with six meals to enjoy as you like – salads will keep in the fridge for up to three days, and hot meals for five.

Price Point: Active Maintain is from £39.10 per day; Fridge Fill prices start from £40 for six dishes.


Best For Athlete-Approved Nutrition: Balance Meals

Specialising in high-performance food to help you focus, gain clarity and stay energised, it’s no wonder Balance Meals is a favourite of pro athletes – it keeps Southend United, Stockport County and Barnsley FC well fed. Proving that healthy food needn’t scrimp on flavour, your options include chocolate-chip overnight oats and chorizo egg muffins for breakfast; grass-fed steak and wedges for lunch; and sticky Thai meatballs, miso-glazed salmon and peanut-butter chicken for dinner. Simply choose your dishes and portion sizes, ordering by 9pm on a Thursday for Sunday delivery. Meal prep doesn’t get easier or tastier than this.

Price Point: Pick five breakfasts, lunches and dinners, as well as up to five snacks to fill your week for £135 (£27 per day), including nationwide delivery.


Best For The Freezer: Allplants

If you find yourself all too often logging onto Deliveroo come 7pm, Allplants’s chef-made frozen meals are worth stocking up on. Made entirely from plants, each meal is packed with at least two to three of your five-a-day, and is rich in protein, iron and vitamin C. Vegan or otherwise, these meals tick all the flavour boxes – think three mushroom risotto, spicy Szechuan noodles and rigatoni bolognese. Packaging is recyclable, compostable or reusable and Allplants works with a carbon-neutral delivery partner. If you’re looking for an option that’s good for you and the planet, this is the one to try.

Price Point: Six meals for one will set you back £40.50, or £6.75 per serving.
