Living in New York City’s concrete jungle is exhilarating, challenging, joyful, stressful, and often leaves little time leftover for making our own healthy meals. New Yorkers strive for the best of everything. We are inventive and we make stuff happen here.
We also love delivery...
So you don’t have time to prepare organic, nutritious meals for yourself and/or your family? No problem. There are a handful of companies that have figured it all out for you and provide an array of healthy options. Easily accessible with as little as a few clicks on your computer.
Full disclosure: I have not personally taste-tested all of the following companies’ meals but have heard from my trusted resources that they are each in fact delicious, sourced responsibly, nutritionally balanced, and free from all the “stuff”.
Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments; I always love feedback!
