As many people enter a period of self-isolation, UK recipe box and healthy meal delivery services go from being a convenient option to genuinely important service. If you’re keen to keep the costs down – that convenience comes at a cost, after all – have a scout around for Mindful Chef discounts. A £20 discount spread across your first two orders is doing the rounds – try Instagram or search for Mindful Chef on Google.
You can book your first Mindful Chef box for free delivery nationwide this Sunday, and we’d recommend including some of the company’s frozen meals in that box, because it may be handy to have some nutritious options in the freezer. No need to go wild, of course – there’s plenty of food to go round if people don’t hoard it.
Those frozen meals cost £7 apiece and include a mouth-watering Italian-style beef and squash lasagne and chipotle chicken with charred corn & brown rice. The service also caters to vegan diets, and if you would prefer to cook for yourself you can order a recipe box with all the ingredients you need to make your dinner.
Healthy meal and recipe delivery services are a great option in general and especially right now, so we’ve picked a few of our other favourites to consider.
Fresh Fitness Food
This is the best healthy meal delivery service we’ve come across in our extensive testing, which is why we awarded it an Editor’s Choice badge, and to help people out during the COVID-19 crisis you can get a 10% discount off Fresh Fitness Food with the code SUPPORT10 whether you’re a new or existing customer. If you’re an NHS worker the deal is rightfully even better – you can get 50% off meal plans with Fresh Fitness Food by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org from your NHS email address.
No1 Food Prep
You can order three-day, seven-day and 14-day meal packages from No1 Food Prep, which offers either meat or fish-based options. The meals come in three sizes: lite, for those looking to lose weight, balance, if you just want to maintain weight, and max, if you want to bulk up or just fancy having loads of food.
Our favourite recipe box delivery service has delicious options to suit all dietary preferences and comes in a little cheaper than most of its rivals. If you want to cook your own meals but don’t want to visit the shops for ingredients, give HelloFresh a try.
As the name suggests, this meal delivery service delivers only plant-based meals, and incredibly tasty plant-based meals they are too. The meals arrive frozen, so you can fill up your freezer if you want to store them for longer, and they come in boxes of six.
