Amid the chaos, food is still a priority for us all (hence why the shelves are cleared out in all supermarkets). Not only is it essential we stay strong and healthy but indulging in a delicious dinner can keep morale high from the satisfaction of accomplishment to the terrific taste.
Let’s create some positivity during this isolation period by bringing family and friends back into the kitchen and cooking healthy meals together again.
Here’s our top six healthy food boxes you can try; because everyone deserves a healthy but scrumptious dinner.
Gymology was born by couple, Jon and Katie, after finding it difficult to find an affordable, quick and healthy option.
Gymology meals are made freshly with the finest quality ingredients, designed by athletes and prepared by chefs (including the former head chef at Manchester United football club, Victoria Dale) and delivered to consumer’s door to cater to busy people.
Their meal plans are designed to help families, parents, corporates, fitness fanatics, sports professionals, nutritionists and anyone pursuing a healthy lifestyle. Consumers can choose from a constantly updating menu of over 300 different meals, meaning that they never have to have the same meal twice.
The brand has also redesigned all of their packing to make it sustainable, becoming the first and only meal preparation company to do this. They amazingly provide a dedicated kids range of food too (including homemade sauces with a lot of hidden vegetables). One for the whole family!
Abel & Cole have been supplying 100% wild or organic produce for over 30 years. Working with independent farmers, makers and bakers, the company delivers ethical, seasonal and sustainable food right to the customer’s door.
Their on-going initiative, The Low Plastic Shop, is a collection of products either plastic or packaging free with the aim to encourage customers to make small sustainable switches.

Calorie controlled gourmet diet; freshly prepared and delivered daily. Love Yourself box serves pre-made fresh, locally sourced seasonal products to your doorstep.
The Love Yourself subscription box allows you to choose your meals based off one of five categories: vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, balanced (meat, fish and veg) and an additional balanced option minus the fish but including the meat. So, everyone will find their ideal box and the food is excellent. The website even allows you to track your diet via the MyFitness App.
The creators of the UK’s very first vegan recipe box, Mindful Chef also caters to meat and fish diets using pre-portioned ingredients from sustainably sourced small British farms. Targeted towards nutritionally balanced diets, the recipe boxes can be delivered to your door once a week and provide the option of dishes for one, two or four people.
Designed for the health conscious, Mindful Chef’s meals are free from dairy, gluten, refined carbs and refined sugars. They never deliver pasta, bread or white rice and instead all their recipes are based on innovative uses of fresh vegetables.
For those out there cooking for one or two and want to simply eat healthily, Balance Box’s tailored programmes can suit all needs and lifestyles.
A team of experts will work closely with you to create your own plan and make sure it suits your lifestyle. Once the plan has been confirmed, the quota of healthy food is delivered daily, so there’s no need to plan meals, go food shopping or worry about portion control; every meal and snack is already prepared to be eaten and enjoyed by you.
You can even enjoy a personal chef programme which will be completely tailored to your needs. Plus, the luxury delivery box company is starting a campaign to combat pollution with nutrition, definitely one to watch!
Worried about falling off the wagon and converting back to old eating habits? Choose from a one, three or four month plan which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a daily snack. The menu can be tailored to your own tastes, so you won’t be presented with any meals you don’t like.
Dishes such as lasagne and thai chicken curry can be found and despite the plans being typically under 1200 calories per day, the portions are generous.
There’s also a support service in place, so you get to speak to a qualified nutritionist at the beginning of the plan and during, whenever you need to. If you have a week where you go off track, the support service can help you to work out your next steps. Jane plan also provides wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and halal diets.
