Just as agriculture ended the age of wandering hunter-gatherer tribes, meal-delivery services liberate humanity from aimlessly searching grocery-store aisles for boxes labeled "lunch." Take a break from nomadic shopping carts with this Groupon.
$45 for Five Days of Prepared Lunch and Dinner Delivery ($95 Value)
Fit2Go delivers a menu of health-conscious meals, calibrated in accordance with the guidelines of the American Heart Association, the American Dietetic Association, and the USDA food pyramid. Meals are delivered to offices between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Monday–Friday and each daily dispatch contains a Fit2Go meal (an $11 value each) and a leafy salad or wrap (an $8 value each), providing enough midday fuel to power body rockets through afternoon meetings or impromptu sumo-wrestling challenges. Patrons can conquer hearty thai pork with mixed veggies one day, then paddle through vegetable chupe the next. Vegetarian options soothe herbaceous appetites with produce-rich entrees such as veggie tofu, spinach ravioli, and veggie burgers. Clients can also customize their meals according to dietary restrictions, allowing those with specific tastes, allergies, or broccoli phobias to enjoy the eats without fear-reducing hypnosis.
Fit 2 Go Healthy Gourmet
Cesar Quintero has struggled with weight all of his life. That is, until he ditched the gimmick diets and found a way to eat nutritiously that was simple enough for him to stick with. He founded his business, Fit 2 Go Healthy Gourmet, to take the guesswork out of dining by bringing people ready-made, balanced meals. His on-staff dietician Rebecca Karousatos works with a chef to develop weekly menus that incorporate such hearty dishes as quinoa salad, turkey meatballs, spaghetti squash, mushroom chicken, and fresh vegetables. The company then packages these meals in individual microwaveable containers that preserve the meals' flavors and convince bosses to replace the break room's cast-iron stove with a microwave. Customers can place orders online or call them in, after which they can be brought to offices anywhere within the company’s delivery area.
