Best For Tracking Macros: 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, carbs and fats). Food is freshly prepared by an expert team of chefs the day before delivery, and all meals are free from gluten and refined sugar. Delivery now available nationwide.

Price Point: From £15 per day.

Best For Healthy Lunches: Key To Food

If you’re WFH 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 packages.

Price Point: A month of healthy lunches (five per week) will set you back £190. A two-day taster package, featuring three meals and a snack, costs £47.

If you find yourself logging onto Deliveroo come 7pm, Field Doctor’s nutritionist-approved frozen meals are worth stocking up on. The brainchild of a dietitian and a Michelin-trained chef, it puts a healthy spin on frozen meals, using ingredients from sustainably focused producers. Meals are made in small batches in Somerset, are flash-frozen to lock in goodness and contain at least two of your five-a-day. Expect classics with a twist – think barley-based risotto, beef ragu with added lentils and curries loaded with superfoods and quinoa. There’s also the option to filter dishes by healthy priority, and the range contains low-FODMAP meals for those suffering from IBS. Delivery is carbon neutral, too.  

Price Point: A six-meal bundle for one costs £39.85, but there’s also the option to build your own box, with prices for individual meals starting from £6.25.

Ingredients are top quality, with spices and aromatics chosen for their specific healing properties. Perfect for fans of Asian cuisine, there are dishes like white bean miso stew, mung mushroom bolognese, vegetable biryani and a traditional Ayurvedic kitchari. There are also healthy treats to satisfy a sweet tooth – the ashwagandha millet brownie is right up our street.
