Glamour 2hrs ago
After putting every pot and pan in your kitchen to use, your New Year's resolution may be to finally cook less. The best meal delivery services can help you achieve your culinary ambitions (or lack thereof) and take stock of your routine as we kick-off 2021. Meal kits may not be for everyone, but the sheer variety means you'll be hard-pressed to find a plan that isn't to your liking or dietary preference. Some meal delivery services, like Sun Basket, focus on providing quality, farm-fresh ingredients for people who want wholesome food without having to step foot in a grocery store. Other services, like Home Chef or Gobble, want to simplify dinnertime for busy families by serving kid-friendly, delicious meals. And then on the opposite ends of the spectrum, you'll find meal kits boasting flavors from around the world, or oven-ready TV-dinners that just require a few minutes of reheating. Like we said, there's a lot to go around—but you can sleep easy knowing that the stakes are low since most subscription services allow you to cancel at any time, or skip as many boxes as you want. From household names like Blue Apron and HelloFresh to more niche companies like Purple Carrot and Daily Harvest, there's something available for even the pickiest eater. Ahead, 21 of the best meal delivery services—most of which are accessible to anyone living in the United States.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
