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 today’s Groupon: for $43, you get five days (Monday–Friday) of prepared lunch and dinner delivered to your workplace from Fit2Go (a $95 total value). Each day of food delivery includes:
- One Fit2Go meal (an $11 value each)
- One salad or wrap (an $8 value each)
Fit2Go's delivery area covers offices in most of Miami-Dade and Broward counties, including Aventura, Blue Lagoon, Brickell, Coral Gables, Doral, Downtown, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Miami Beach, Miami Lakes, South Miami, and Sunrise.
Fit2Go delivers a menu of health-conscious meals to busy mouths at work, calibrated in accordance with the guidelines of the American Heart Association, the American Dietetic Association, and the USDA food pyramid. Each daily dispatch contains a Fit2Go meal and a leafy salad or wrap, 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.
After registering online, consumers can begin building meal plans by clicking the gold "Order all week of lunch" tab at the top of the week's calendar, which automatically selects the week's worth of Fit2Go meals. Customers can then use the supplementary links to substitute vegetarian or allergy-averting options for the Fit2Go meals before manually selecting the desired salad or wrap for each day of the week and clicking "Continue." Feel free to peruse the menu of extras in the second step (not included in the cost of the Groupon), or cruise straight to the checkout line. After placing orders, deliveries start on the following Monday and arrive between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. every day throughout the week. Gratuity is already included, letting customers focus on tipping their neighbors for friendly smiles and appropriately trimmed rose bushes.
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.
