19 Best Healthy Food Delivery Services of 2021
Self 2hrs ago
Meal prepping when you’re juggling responsibilities is always a hassle, but it's an even more of a hassle when you're trying to limit trips to the supermarket. Healthy food delivery services are one work-around, if you can afford them. They can save you time on grocery shopping, plus help you develop your cooking skills and eat healthier by providing you with preselected (often chef-approved) meal kits, with the details of flavors and fixings already thought through. Particularly for people who are going vegan or vegetarian in quarantine, healthy meal kits are a great way to help filter ingredients according to your dietary needs so you can make sure you’re still getting enough nutrients and proteins (and without worrying that you forgot that head of garlic or bunch of tomatoes at the grocery store). Since many of them come with recipe cards, they can also help you expand your cooking repertoire and master new dishes. Or, if you’re not interested in cooking at all, there are also meal kits like Fresh and Easy, Freshly, or Snap Kitchen that send you meals precooked and ready to be heated up. And though anything involving shipping and lots of single-use containers is inherently not great for the environment, there are even some meal kits that use recycled or compostable packaging, carefully size portions to avoid food waste, and are sourcing food sustainably. Below, we detailed all the need-to-know info about navigating the best healthy meal delivery services on the market, including special dietary options and pricing for each. Also, since delivery times and ingredient availability may be in flux due to the coronavirus, we’ve updated this story with COVID-19 statements from brands, along with any other service changes you need to know.

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.
