He who desires but acts not breeds pestilence, which in turn is the source of most failed movie remakes. Act on your desire to not cook with today's Groupon: for $20, you get three freshly made meals delivered to your home or office from The Fit Gourmet of New Orleans, up to a $40.50 value. There is no additional delivery fee for the meals, and The Fit Gourmet's delivery service area covers the New Orleans metro area but excludes Mandeville, New Orleans East, and Chalmette.
With a kitchen helmed by executive chef Dione Duhon, The Fit Gourmet's meal makers carefully craft foodstuffs from fresh and local ingredients. The menu reflects local, seasonal seafood, veggies, and fruit, and the meals are packaged in microwave-safe containers affixed with nutrition labels for convenient eating in the know. With today's Groupon, customers can select meals from the children's, lunch, dinner, or vegetarian menus. Choices may include meals of succulent chicken cordon bleu ($10), fresh salads ($8.50–$11.50), vegetarian pizza on crisp, whole-wheat crust ($10.50), and shrimp and corn fajitas ($12.50), to name just a few. Each meal comes with an additional snack for stolen munching moments, and specials change from week to week. When ready to redeem your Groupon, call The Fit Gourmet to schedule delivery of your three meals.
For anyone who's ever thought that personal chefs are the domain of wealthy gentlemen with a gentlemen's personal gentleman tending to their every ablution, The Fit Gourmet acts as concrete evidence to the contrary. Maintaining a healthy diet can be a challenge to rival take-at-home art tests that run the gamut of cartoon turtles and pirates, especially when you have to fit eating between work, book club, and the kids’ karate practice. With help from The Fit Gourmet, the challenge crumbles to its most rudimentary elements, making healthy food that is fresh, delicious, and filling quick and effortless. Internal torso purses cease their grumbling, and the office vending machine's siren song becomes less appealing as you indulge in a mouthwatering meal from The Fit Gourmet.

Orders must be placed at least 24 hours in advance will be delivered between 10:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. on the day of delivery.
