Remember when “apps” were something you ordered before dinner?…
If you don’t feel like cooking, or if you’ve never felt like cooking, meal delivery apps are a fast, safe, easy way to keep up good nutrition (or not!). You can have prepared meals or ingredients and recipes shipped to your home, so you can skip the supermarket and still treat your taste buds. Most apps/websites allow you to choose how many meals you want to buy, and you can order to suit your dietary preferences and requirements.
Here are 5 Boston area companies to try…
Heart to Home Meals – This meal delivery service focuses on people 50 and older. They aim to help seniors keep our lifestyles, nutrition and tastes in mind so we can age with good nutrition that tastes good, too.
Macro Mediterranean – Focuses on creating and offering a unique recipe system of easy, whole-food vegan meals many people have used to help them achieve better health and sustainable, natural weight loss.

6AmHealth – They offer fresh salads, juices, overnight oats, and bowls delivered to you in thermal bags.

And, if you don’t feel like doing anything but open a bag or box, most local restaurants will deliver. (Brenda says she prefers this option to using delivery services like Uber, DoorDash or GrubHub, because the restaurants keep more of the money.) Check with your favorite restaurants – many now deliver and/or offer curbside pickup.
